Phew I thought for a second Meathead had died. Carl was a bit into everything over the years. I think the last I saw him in was my wife's show Hot In Cleveland years ago. RIP

An infamous one.... Mary Kay Letourneau, teacher jailed for raping student she later married, dies at 58

Dont let the door hit ya on the way out pervert.
Mary Kay Letourneau, the former Seattle-area teacher who married a man she was convicted of raping when he was in sixth grade, has died of cancer, her lawyer said Tuesday. She was 58.

The lawyer, David Gehrke, did not provide additional details.

Letourneau gained infamy after her 1997 conviction for second-degree child rape of 12-year-old Vili Fualaau. She was a 34-year-old mother of four when the rape occurred.

Letourneau was pregnant with her former student's child at the time of her conviction

Wow, Kelly Preston has died of breast cancer. I honestly didn’t even know she was ill. Apparently she and her family kept it quiet. 57 is too young to go. I didn’t agree with her belief in a space god, but I do hope she’s at peace now.

Indeed, in my mind he'll always be Roper from Enter the Dragon. Although he also famously played the father of the main protagonist in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Growing up, my family was a HUGE Bugsy Malone family.

Over the years I have procured copies on VHS, dvd, YouTube, in pieces ? , and now digitally.

Turned my kids into big fans too.

It’s such a strange outlier of a production.

WILFORD BRIMLEY DEAD AT 85...
TMZ.com wrote:Enlarge Image

Wilford Brimley -- an iconic actor who was the face of Quaker Oats for years, as well as a spokesperson for diabetes education -- has died ... a rep tells TMZ.

We're told Brimley passed away Saturday morning at his home in Utah. Sources with direct knowledge of Wilford's health tell us he was in an ICU wing of a hospital on dialysis, and very sick for days.

Wilford had a lengthy career on camera, dating back to the 1970s with over 70 acting credits. He's perhaps most known for roles in cult classic films like "Cocoon," "The Natural," "The Thing," "Hard Target," and countless other memorable on-screen appearances, big and small.

Brimley started out as mostly a TV actor, landing one-time roles on TV series like "How the West Was Won," 'Kung Fu,' "The Oregon Trail," and then eventually ... a recurring part on "The Waltons." He went on to star in a bunch of TV movies, such as "The Wild Wild West Revisited," "Amber Waves," "Roughnecks," "Rodeo Girl," 'The Big Black Pill,' and so on.

In the '80s, he started breaking out into more traditional films, appearing in flicks like "High Road to China," "10 to Midnight," "Tough Enough," "Jackals," "End of the Line," and a bunch of other B-movies where he'd often play an authority figure or a grandfatherly figure with his deep, comforting Southern accent. One of the best character actors without a doubt.

He went on to star in countless other movies and shows, notably on "Our House," in which he starred in over 40 episodes, as well one-off appearances in hit series like "Walker, Texas Ranger," "Seinfeld," and so many others.

Folks might remember Wilford more for commercials though over the years -- specifically, his campaigns with Quaker Oats through the '80s and '90s, and maybe even more memorable ... his classic diabetes ads for Liberty Medical -- which was often spoofed, but also beloved.

Wilford was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus in 1979, and managed the disease ever since then -- obviously, he was very open about it. The American Diabetes Association honored him for his lifetime of advocacy in 2008.

A rep for Wilford tells TMZ, one of his favorite quotes was from a sign at a blacksmith's shop. It read, "There is nothing made, sold, or done that can't be made, sold, or done cheaper. If price is your only concern, please do business with my competitor."

He's survived by his wife, Beverly, and his three children.

Wilford was 85. RIP

What a great actor. I loved his bad guy turn in The Firm and his level headed world protector role in The Thing.

He also had a hard on of blue steel that a cat couldn't scratch. So, obviously there is a lot of respect.

Just the other day Sean Combs (aka Puff Daddy, aka Puffy, aka P-Diddy, aka Diddy) crossed the Brimley/Cocoon line, which is the age Brimley was when Cocoon was released.

Your Mother (my band) wrote a song called 1979. AFAIK it only still exists on a cassette that I can't play anymore, because when's the last time you had a functioning cassette player? We also had a song called Skylab that was huge in 1979. I can still remember some of the lyrics. IDK if it was ever recorded.

I dream in Technicolor
I move in black and white
Decked out in sheets of rhythm
I stagger through the night

Can't seem to find the doorway
Can't seem to find the words
Can't seem to move my fingers
Can't seem to rhyme this verse

I spin in shrinking circles
I take another hit

[my memory fails here, random couplets follow]

I sit and wait for Skylab
Don't know where it's gonna fall

Draw an inviting bullseye
Climb in and close my eyes.

Sincere apologies to Wilfred Brimley for hijacking his obit, but the internet is all about me.
