Famous people are dropping like flies at present. I for one cannot be bothered to start a new thread for each one.

It is a sign that we ourselves are not getting any younger. Those we grew up watching and admiring are all dropping off their perches. It comes as a surprise only because we see them still looking hale, hearty and young on the TV and in films. Who would , watching early Only Fools & Horses or Open All Hours, imagine that David Jason is really so old.

In Fools & Horses

He is playing Rincewind the wizard in the Sky adaption of Pratchetts 'Colour of Magic' over easter. Sounds like major miscasting to me.  rubschin:

David Jason? .... Not that I am aware but he is on the TV a lot and the fact that this causes us to not notice the ageing process in Actors etc and that is why their deaths come as a surprise so often is what I was trying to demonstrate. According to this Mr Jason is alive and still earning. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/tv/article888952.ece

LICENSE PLATES

The state of Idaho issued its first plates in 1913, with the price determined by the value of the vehicle. There were only 2,083 plates issued that year (each vehicle receiving a single plate). Motorcycles were not issued an actual license plate. Instead, the owners simply painted their registry number, state, and year of manufacture on the rear mud guard. In 1917, motorcyclists received their first actual motorcycle plates.

Back then, if a license plate was lost, the motorist could purchase a blank replacement plate that was flat where the numbers would typically be embossed. The owner could then hand paint the license plate number in the flat area. Perhaps that is where Idaho's creative license plate designs first began.

Idaho has a long history of creative plate designs, in fact, it pioneered the concept. In 1928, Idaho became the first state in the nation to feature a graphic on a license plate by proudly displaying an impressive Idaho potato that filled the entire plate.

The 1940 plate commemorated 50 YEARS OF STATEHOOD, and from 1941 to 1946 the words SCENIC IDAHO appeared on Idaho plates. 1947 plates proclaimed the state a VACATION WONDERLAND! The 1948 plate highlighted our most famous product as WORLD FAMOUS POTATOES. In 1953 and 1956, the slogan was modified to read WORLD FAMOUS POTATO, but was shortened to FAMOUS POTATOES in 1957.

Displaying Idaho's passion for the outdoors, and skiing in particular, the 1947 plate featured a ski jumper. But in 1948 and 1949, the famous potato returned, this time in the form of a decal, complete with a pat of butter.

From 1958 through 1968 the plates alternated between a green background with white letters to a white background with green letters. From 1968 through 1990, the standard plate format had a white background with green lettering.

“J.R. Simplot was a wonderful man and a great mentor who embodied what Idaho is all about. His love of family, his appreciation of America, his work ethic and his devotion to making this a better world through the free enterprise system all are values to which Idaho aspires.

Quote
In 1950 Coke embarked on a subsidiary career as a playwright, with a genial comedy entitled The Isle of Umbrellas, a play about weather control co-written with Mabel L Tyrell and produced at the Embassy. But he continued to work on stage, too, appearing in Donald Wolfit's company in Tamburlaine the Great at the Old Vic the following year, during which he dropped his sword on his foot. He finished the scene, but was afterwards carted off to St Thomas's, where he required stitches. He made it unscathed through Wolfit's production of The Clandestine Marriage in December, but in January 1952 he was stabbed during an Old Vic touring production of King Lear in Brussels. He recovered well enough to be "acceptable" as Alcibiades in Timon of Athens (Old Vic, 1952).

Not a relation, I suppose?

Sorry but how is this "heroic"?

Heroic because he knew he would have been shot if he had been discovered by his captors whilst either forging or digging. Heroism is being afraid and still carrying on, recognising danger and accepting it.
Today I have heard the BBC trailers for their Olympic coverage speaking of "Heroic Deeds" to be performed, I have heard Government Ministers speaking of the "Heroric Efforts" of "our" competitors. I'm sorry but winning a gold medal for the 100 yard dash whilst high on an undiscovered drug and displaying your meat and two veg in a lycra outfit does not compare with risking your life to help your comrades escape from a POW camp.

Writer Simon Gray, author of literate, bittersweet plays and diaries, has died at 71 after a year fighting cancer.

The rakish figure, who claimed to consume three bottles of champagne a day, penned more than 30 plays, including Quartermaine's Terms, Otherwise Engaged and The Old Masters.

In 1995, the West End run of Cell Mates was famously curtailed when star Stephen Fry suffered a breakdown and disappeared for days.

Gray just made the episode into a book Fat Chance.

He also wrote five novels and the screenplay for 1987 film A Month in the Country.

But Hants-born ex-lecturer Gray's best-known works were set in universities.

Butley, about a dyspeptic professor in meltdown, was turned into a movie starring Alan Bates and The Common Pursuit was a story of students on a literary mag.

Although Gray sometimes went out of fashion, several of his plays had successful recent revivals. And lately he'd won a new following for his witty memoirs - including The Smoking Diaries and The Last Cigarette - on his battles with producers, alcoholism and a 60-a-day tobacco habit.

He is survived by wife Victoria and a daughter and son from his first marriage..

US singer-songwriter Isaac Hayes has died at his home in Memphis, Tennessee, at the age of 65, police said.

Police were called to Mr Hayes' home after his wife found him unconscious. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1408 (1908 GMT).

Mr Hayes, a flamboyant, deep-voiced performer, won an Oscar for the 1971 hit Theme From Shaft.

He was perhaps better known to a younger audience as the voice of Chef from the hit cartoon show, South Park.

The cause of death was not immediately known.

"Family members believe at this point it is a medical condition that might have led to his death," a police spokesman said, adding Mr Hayes was being treated for "a number of medical issues".

Mr Hayes suffered a stroke in 2006.

The Dressings were, of course, a product of the Charity Food Company that Newman set up that has, since its inception, channelled millions of $ to the poor.
To put your name, face and money into something like that is, I feel, truly "giving back" something in return for your own good fortune. A far cry to Lloyd Grossman who sold his name and "reputation" in a copy cat operation purely for his own financial benefit.

From Daily Telegraph Obit:
Quote
Newman had a thriving sideline in the manufacture of food and salad dressings, marketed under the name Newman’s Own. The business began in 1962, when he and his neighbour, the writer AE Hotchner, set up a company “as a joke” to sell Newman’s original oil and vinegar dressing.

Within two years, it had become a multi-million dollar enterprise, revenues from which were funnelled into charities and social welfare organisations. It also helped to fund the Scott Newman Foundation, named after the actor’s son from his first marriage, who died of a drug overdose in 1978. The foundation concentrated on making anti-drug instructional films for children.

I'm a bit distracted and thoughtful at the moment; an old friend of mine has died. It was on the cards since another stroke. The first one left him in a wheel chair some years back but still with a razor sharp mind and wit. A life in the law led to many stories which I'm mulling over now as I wait to hear details of the funeral.
He was once asked to be on the defence for Saunders in the Guinness trial. It was a normal day in the office only one of the legs of his desk was broken and he was underneath it when there was a knock on the door. In walked Saunders saying,
"Good Morning, I believe you can help me."
"On the contrary" said my friend. "You can help me by holding this desk up while I fix the leg!"
He took the brief with a screwdriver in hand whilst staring at Saunders trousers!

R.I.P. good friend.

Has anyone written down your late friend's tales? ~ Might be worth while as long as the family don't object. Books, as you know as well as I do, make very little money but sometimes things are just too good not to record for posterity.

A stroke is one of my fears, although they tell me it is unlikely given the heart medication I take, but to be stuck unable to communicate whilst the brain is still active must be an absolute bastard.

About the bloke that pulls a bird in the pub and she agrees to shag him?

They get outside and they are so desperate that she suggests they do it in his car instead.

Well, he only has an old white van so they get in the back of that.

However, she says she can only get truly aroused if she is whipped into a state of sexual frenzy.

Lacking a whip in the back of his van, the bloke breaks off the aerial and gives her a good thrashing with that.

After a good shagging session, she insists that she gives him a good thrashing with the aerial before ‘Round # 2’ which she duly does and they get down to it again.

Anyhoo… a week later and he is suffering from the most terrible back pain. He eventually has to go to the doctor who examines him and pronounces…

“That’s the worst case of Van aerial Disease I’ve ever seen”!

Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning, December 18, 2008, at 12:27 AM in her Bel Air home. She died peacefully, in her sleep, and was surrounded by family and loved ones.

"My mother truly acknowledged and appreciated the fact that Star Trek fans played a vital role in keeping the Roddenberry dream alive for the past 42 years. It was her love for the fans, and their love in return, that kept her going for so long after my father passed away." - Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, Jr.

Blossom Dearie: Missed in the hubbub of last week's Grammys was the loss of one of the sweetest voices in the jazz world (or any other); the singer died in her sleep at 82. For those who aren't familiar, think back to "Figure Eight" or "Unpack Your Adjectives" from the "Schoolhouse Rock" cartoons. Who else could've made multiplication tables sound as lovely and smooth?

I don't think so. It doesn't appear in his list of "credits"

I recall that one character in the Original Flying Doctor series (and there has been more than one although they changed the name on later series to The Flying Doctors) was an actor by the name of Dawson ~ a real Aussie who later popped up on "Emergency Ward Ten" along with Desmond Carrington

He seems to have been around forever though.

Post by: Snoopy on June 03, 2009, 05:41:24 PM
Update: Dawson was not one of the main characters in the Flying Doctor so perhaps he had a minor role or my memory is shot.
the main cast are given here and includes Patrick Troughton who went on to be a Dr Who!

The Kung Fu and Kill Bill star was found with a noose around his neck and another rope around his genitals in a wardrobe in his hotel room in Bangkok.
Police commander Lieutenant General Worapong Siewpreecha said it was unclear whether the 72-year-old killed himself or died from suffocation or heart failure due to ejaculation.
"There was a rope tied around his neck and another rope tied at his sex organ, and the two ropes were tied together and hung in the closet," he said.
"Under these circumstances we cannot be sure that he committed suicide but he may have died from masturbation."

Since Carradine was found last Thursday there have been conflicting reports on the circumstances of his death. Family members insist the Kill Bill star would not have committed suicide and his US-based lawyer Vicki Roberts claimed the star had been murdered.

Relatives went on to suggest he had been assassinated for delving into the affairs of secretive martial arts sects associated with crime. A panel member on the Larry King show on US television said: 'David was very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies.'

Thai investigators believe the star of the 1970s TV series Kung Fu died during an auto-erotic sex act and are no longer treating the case as a simple suicide.

"There was a rope tied around his neck and another rope tied to his genitals, and the two ropes were tied together and they hung in the closet," L Gen Worapong Siewpreecha said.

"Under these circumstances we cannot be sure that he committed suicide."

Speak roughly to your little boy

I beat him when he sneezes

Apparently the coroner has published his initial findings into the death of Michael Jackson. It is claimed he fell over a pram left inconveniently parked inside his property. The coroner has asked for his fans to show some respect for his family at the moment and don't blame it on the buggy

Anyway, never heard of him:

Obit:

Quote
Dash Snow, the elusive New York artist who embodied a low-brow, downtown vibe fuelled equally by gleeful acts of social subversion and a hedonistic hunger for illegal drugs and high jinks of the flesh, has died from a heroin overdose, aged 27.


Snow, with unruly hair and beard, became the mythical hero of an artistic underworld in lower Manhattan after a profile published in New York magazine in 2007, "Chasing Dash Snow", by Ariel Levy. Celebrated almost as much for his on-the-edge lifestyle in a city of growing conformity as for his art, Snow was best known for his photographs, sculptures and collages.

"It's funny to me that Dash has become like a rock star, but he's so paranoid," Ryan McGinley, the photographer and a close friend, told New York. "That comes from graffiti culture ? like, you want everybody to know who you are and you're going to write your name all over the city, but you can't let anyone know who you really are. It's, like, this idea of being notorious."
He is survived by his wife, Agathe Snow, and a daughter, Secret Magic Nico Snow (!), who he had with the fashion model Jade Berreau.



I'm surprised he lasted so long.

Quote
fter a lean period, he was excited to be offered a part in a new BBC science fiction series. His agent told him he would not need to learn any lines for the casting, and when he arrived at the BBC workshops he was asked to strip down to his underpants and sit in what appeared to be a tub on castors.
Summerton (who was one of the four original Daleks) was instructed in how to move this apparatus about, the director saying: "We want to test this prototype for manoeuvrability. We want you to move forwards, backwards, sideways. Quickly, slowly." Presently the director lowered a lid over him with a plunger sticking out of it. Summerton found himself in total darkness. He would later relate: "When the lid went on I knew my career as an actor was over."

Oddly there was a TV programme on him yesterday, the review in today's Indie.

Some folk are also inclined to mistake blokeishness for being a nice bloke, as became clear in Keith Meets Keith, a strange but compelling documentary in which one well-known roisterer, Keith Allen, went in search of another, the former TV chef Keith Floyd, finding him in a village near Avignon looking terrible, at least one decade and possibly two older than his 65 years.

There is already plenty of evidence to suggest that Floyd is not a particularly nice man, and plenty more emerged here, but his unflagging capacity to drink, smoke and swear to excess ? including a liberal sprinkling of the c-word, which has officially lost its status as the last TV taboo ? was seemingly enough to convince Allen that he was "one of the most honest and genuine people I've ever met". Now, I don't mean to sound pious. I've even been known to enjoy a spot of carousing myself. But there was nothing honest or genuine in the gruesome spectacle of Floyd getting steadily more hammered, more melancholy and more abusive at a lunch with his daughter Poppy, from whom he had been estranged for 10 years. It was car-crash television. The only thing more agonising than watching was not watching.

Smoked, drank copious mounts of alcohol, ate foods rich in cream, butter etc. Pretty much on the cards I'd have said.

Because we all know that smoking causes cancer and heart problems ~ although I doubt that he ever stuck a lit ciggy up his backside never the less the anti smoking brigade will add him to their oft quoted statistics because it will suit their case.

He knew what he was doing, took the chances and has now paid the price. Somehow I doubt that he had too many regrets about his lifestyle.

As is this sentiment

A woman calling herself Princess Yasmine von Hohenstaufen Anjou Plantagenet wrote to the newly-elected Italian president, Giorgio Napolitano, claiming that she was the true heir to Seborga's throne and offering to hand it over to Italy. Carbone gruffly dismissed her claim, voicing doubts over her lineage: "I have never seen her," he said. "We call her the internet princess".

Missed this one earlier in the month. (4th March)

Fred Wedlock aged 67
Quote
The Bristol entertainment scene is mourning the passing of Fred Wedlock ? The Oldest Swinger In Town ? who has passed away at the age of 67.

A prolific songwriter, Mr Wedlock had been a familiar name on the Bristol scene for more than 40 years ? producing a raft of popular comedy folk ballads, as well as fronting television and radio programmes.


It seems appropriate to show this

Sir Alec Bedser aged 91.

Quote
Sir Alec Bedser, who died yesterday at the age of 91, was paid the ultimate tribute by the late Sir Donald Bradman who said the England and Surrey bowler "probably worried me more than any other Englishman".

The fast bowler made his Surrey debut in 1939 and retired from the game in 1960 after taking 236 wickets in 51 Tests and later served a 12-year term as England's chairman of selectors until 1981. He was knighted for his services to cricket in 1996.

I remember him playing ~ one of my early heroes.

Jimmy Dean Foods is a food company that was founded in 1969 by country singer and actor Jimmy Dean. It was purchased by Consolidated Foods, (later renamed Sara Lee Corporation).

Dean founded the Jimmy Dean Sausage brand of breakfast sausage was originally called "Pure Pork Sausage." Despite ups and downs (some revolving around his problems with his partner-brother Don Dean), the Jimmy Dean Sausage company did well, in part due to Dean's own extemporized, good-humored commercials.

Dean remained involved in running the company after the takeover, though they eventually began phasing him out of any management duties, a traumatic period that took a toll on his health. By 2004, he was no longer acting as spokesman, and enjoyed his retirement living with second wife Donna Meade Dean, whom he married in 1991. Jimmy Dean died June 13th, 2010.

In 2007, the company received brief national attention after a caller's complaint was posted on the Internet, angry about having a 16-ounce sausage roll reduced to 12 ounces.

Apparently one of his advertising slogans was
"I'm Jimmy Dean and I'd like you to try my pure pork sausage"

BM might like to try that one out sometime.  whistle:

Sorry to hear that TMR - takes a certain amount of courage to take your own life and all of us that moan about 'our lot' should remember how bad it could be...

I think it is sad that suicide is such a taboo subject - mainly for religious reasons - which forces people like Spencer to take such drastic measure and leaves people like JOM to clear up the mess...

I think it should be open to all of us to terminate our life painlessly when we've had enough of it.

What an extraordinary body of work that man has left behind. I'd have no problem choosing his music alone for a Desert Island Discs selection, in fact I might put together some favourites elsewhere in the VP.
The only time I ever saw him in the flesh he was on the bill at some theatre in Manchester along with Adam Faith, the Karl Denver Trio and of course his JB7. Heady stuff as I was only a 10 year old  angel1
In some way he's provided much of the soundtrack for the years I've lived starting with the late 50's band music, the early 60's JB7, all most of the James Bond theme tunes, a few Michael Caine movies and many, many more besides.
If you haven't heard "The Beyondness of Things", try it.

Fantastic guitar player, particularly blues, I've posted a few of his on the desert island thread previously

(His odd shaped mouth was due to being bottled a number of years ago)

George Shearing, yesterday aged 91.

Quote
He was appointed OBE in 1996. In 2007 he was knighted. "So," he noted later, "the poor, blind kid from Battersea became Sir George Shearing. Now that's a fairy tale come true."

I think that's a "Given" BM.

Clearly some in the Pakistan Government were happy to have Bin Laden there and equally clearly some told the Yanks where he was and how to get him. Best thing we can now do is stay vigilant and keep our heads down. Bin Laden's followers will, no doubt, be looking to strike back and I suspect we in the "West" will learn that sometimes it is better the devil you know than the one you don't.

Like Ireland, Islam is a problem that has been with us for centuries and neither are going to go away any time soon. The UK is an island (or collection thereof) and it ought to be easy to filter out those who would do us harm. We have let them in..... BIG mistake but it is correctable with firm and fast action. Fvck Human Rights and Asylum Seekers. We have rights too. Time somebody stood up for them the way we used to.
