RIP Prince :(

Here we go again. Another music icon has been lost. I may not have been a huge fan of Prince, but I did enjoy some of his songs, and I know what a tremendous artist he was and how much of an influence on the music world he was. He will be sorely missed 😦



RIP Alan Rickman

On the heels of the tragic loss of  David Bowie comes the loss of another great Brit, actor Alan Rickman. I will miss him so much. I loved him in so many roles. I will always love and remember him as Severus Snape in  Harry Potter, of course. And as Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Also as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And as the voice of Marvin the robot in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie. And – one of my most favorite of his roles, next to Snape – as Alexander Dane (Dr. Lazarus) in Galaxy Quest.

RIP Alan. You will be terribly missed 😦




RIP David Bowie – Another Great Gone

It seems as if, over the past month or so, we’ve lost some music greats (and some personal favorites of mine). First was Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots, then Lemmy of Motorhead, then Natalie Cole. They left some great music behind them and they will be missed. May these greats rest in peace.

And now, David Bowie has left us, as well, leaving a great musical legacy in his wake, too.

Mr. Bowie, sir, you will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace, Ziggy Stardust.



And I will always remember him as Jareth, the Goblin King


Life and Death – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds

A little something in the spirit of Halloween:

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and the other begins?” – Edgar Allan Poe

This is part of One-liner Wednesday:

Happy Halloween!!

R.I.P. Robin Williams


I still can’t believe the news that the great actor and comedian Robin Williams is dead. I didn’t want to believe the first reports I saw, but when the major news outlets started reporting it, I had to resign myself to the fact that he was gone. He was one of my favorite actors. I first remember seeing him in reruns of Mork and Mindy when I was a kid. And I loved him as the voice of Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was great in Good Morning, Vietnam, HookJumanj, Dead Poets Society, Night at the Museum, and so many other movies. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Robin.
