 annefrancis   Anne Francis.  I'm sure she's done a lot, but what connects her (and makes her cool) to me is that she's one of the folks mentioned in the opening song ("Science Fiction/Double Feature") of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I'm still recovering from Gerry Rafferty's death.  Every one loves "Baker Street."  In the 70s, my boyfriend @ the time worked in a socialist hippie record store in downtown DC.  He said all he had to do was put "Baker Street" on the stereo and the records would sell--black, white, young, old, hippie, punk, square conservative... it didn't matter.  They loved Gerry. 

Very few people can write songs that appeal to nearly every one.

And God bless Tarantino for resurrecting "Stuck in the Middle."  Although the scene, as you know, is a violent one.  All the better to help lodge the song in your head.

Re: Celebrity Deaths: Bettie Mae Page

Michael V:

I hate to be a couple of years behind. But I admit I didn't know about her death until a few months ago. After "checking" online about what she was "up to" these days, I discovered she passed away:

Bettie Mae Page (April 22, 1923 December 11, 2008)

Age: 85

Now, I admit I heard on ABC news radio when she was hospitalized after her heart attack at the time in December, 2008. But I never heard a follow up about her lapsing into a coma, and having her surviving family "pull the plug" on her life support after roughly two weeks.

If you don't know who she was, all, here is the website run by people that came along along after the electronic age that the aged Ms. Page admitted she didn't understand:

http://www.bettiepage.com/

Nothing like an 'ole girl from Nashville (Kingsport), Tennessee making good. She is a classic in American pop culture.

I once dated an Arkansas girl that was her spittin' image. Her spittin' image. And never knew it.

Ok, here are my predictions for upcoming celebrity deaths, in no particular order in terms of chronology or desireability.  I hereby relinquish responsibility in any way, shape, or form, should any of these predictions either occur, or fail to:

#1.  Charlie Sheen- Duh, that was easy huh?  But wait, I'm picking up something else... yes... Ok, I'm seeing a nasty fall down a stripper pole in just the very wrong, head first position.  Sorry Charlie!

#2.  Linndsey Lohwhatevr, LayLow, whatever they call her-  She will die from blunt force trauma accidentally delivered by one Caucasian male cranium, see prediction #1 above. 

I know, this is sad guys.  It gets worse.

#3.  Blue Man Group-  An unfortunate David Carradine-type, trifecta closet accident is what I'm picking up here.

#4.  Elvis- This time for real, goes out Happy Rockefeller style, Playboy Mansion basement.  The estate will cut a deal with the girls and the chimp to ixnay on the eadElvisday.  This info will not become public until long after Hef rides the blue pill express to the stars.  Remember, you heard it didn't happen here first.

#5.  Cheney, Dick-  RIP Sukka, not.

#6.  Larry King-  Oops!  Too late.

#7.  Alex Jones-  God bless you man, mean it!  Sometimes I believe that you're really only trying to help.  But seriously, this is no joke, take a chill homie.  That can't be good for the ol' ticker, know what I mean?  Eat well, get some rest, maybe a sweatlodge or two.  Seriously bro.  We might need you around someday when it's down to bullhorns and trading food for water and such.  For now though, and I hardly ever recommend this, I think it would be good if you picked yourself up a 'script for some medical Cannabis Holmes.  All on the up and up, no illegalities suggested here.  Believe you me it might help you out.  That, and some Oprah Book of the Month Club stuff to read maybe.  Just saying...

So there you have it.  If any of these come true, do you think I would have a chance of being a neeto guest on George's amazing and fantastic show?

James E. Winner Jr., 81 - Inventor of "The Club" - Automobile accident.


Yup, killed by the very machine he made millions protecting.




Totally unrelated, but who would put a Club on a Ford Falcon? You can't hardly give those away!

I swear this song saved my life!  Once upon a time in my younger days I landed at a party with a guy only to run into two OTHER guys I, err . . . "knew."  There was some awkward silence, and then I thought of this song and just burst out singing "Clowns to the left of me . . ."  Everyone laughed. 

And no - that was not typical of me - I rarely got that kind of action, but I was the new girl in town and it was the 70's DAMMIT!

thanks for the flash back  ;)

The Bear
AKA Owsley, Kid Charlemagne
I Feel Funny But I Don't Know Why
Excuse Me While I Kiss The Sky
This guy added lots of fuel to the cultural fires of the 60's and beyond, well beyond his high caliber lysergic acid.  The dude was some kind of genius, and was not afraid of letting you know.  I guess I've always been attracted to gruff, opinionated people, and The Bear was certainly that.  We were connected through close common friends, if he really had any.  He and I corresponded through the 90's, although I must say that it felt more like him dictating his point of view to me.  He was certainly engaging but held his insights about reality, the system, and personal mythology like a shield between himself and lesser informed opinions.  God's Secret Agent, Tim Leary called him.  The feeling I got from him was that he was a very interesting character who I really wouldn't want to hang out with.  A cultural rodeo clown who drew the heat while the rest of us regained composure after getting bucked off the bull.  Adios amigo!
Careful what you carry
 'Cause the man is wise
 You are still an outlaw in their eyes
