I think I was actually in Kroger's when I heard her version of "Party". She was absolutely competitive with Elvis. I've always been partial to that number, and she did it right.

Charlie  Watts  famed  drummer  of  The  Rolling  Stones  dead at  80.

I thought they'd live forever. Saw a wonderful interview with Charlie several years ago. He owned an estate in the English countryside. One of his favorite pass times was to take his metal detector, a thermos of tea and some "chips" and go hunting in the fields. He had quite a collection of medieval coins and tools. He sounded very nice. I bet he would've been a wonderful dinner companion. RIP Charlie.

Ed Asner, Emmy-Winning ‘Lou Grant’ Star, Dies at 91

Ed Asner was in a wonderful little, underappreciated Indie, GIGANTIC (2008).  A very nice cast and curious story. I would recommend it to anyone who has not seen it. Zooey Deschanel has a hilarious tiny line about describing a bowl of goat soup. "It's very ligamenty." I use that line when I taste something I don't particularly like. 

 RIP, Lou Grant.

Lee "Scratch" Perry. What a great producer/musician. I suppose at the age of 85 it was not much of

a surprise. And shows that ganja consumption is no bar to a long life. :)

I still consider him a musician, even if not in the traditional Babylonian sense. And who listens to

"records" anymore.

Marilyn Eastman, how sad. I didn't know she was partners with the actor who played her husband, Karl Hardman.  Night of the Living Dead terrified me when I saw it when it first came out.

I'm sad to hear this news.  I worked with Joan on several films coaching different actors and she and Richard lived nearby in Petersham.

Richard E Grant has announced that his devoted wife Joan has died aged 71. Joan, a voice coach, passed away last night, the Withnail and I actor revealed in a heartbreaking tribute. He posted a poignant video of the pair dancing together and laughing along to a song. Richard wrote: 'ONLY YOU! Joan - Love of my Life & Giver of Life to our daughter Olivia. Our hearts are broken with the loss of your Life last night. 35 years married & 38 together. To be truly known and seen by you, is your immeasurable gift. Do not forget us, sweet Monkee-mine.'
