Could be, on my iPhone it goes to cricket. On my mac it goes to the Buckner obit.

Sounds like your iPhone wants you to like cricket over baseball.

Roky Erikson   >:(

He is what the Dead wish they could be, but could not hold a candle to.



And he loved Buddy Holly pop



And yet he had a dark proto-punk style too. 





I came to him while a DJ at the college station and this album came out.  Remember all the tribute albums in the 90s?  But there was also that great cover of his stuff by Bongwater.

Huh. I had no idea Anderson Cooper was her son.

Good riddance. He was a forerunner of the star CEO culture and a founding Force for much of today's horrible capitalist practice.

I mean it's not as bad as Jack Welch  but he is up there

Quote
Paul Benjamin, who appeared in Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, has died. Lee announced on Instagram that the veteran actor died June 28. The cause of death was not immediately known. Benjamin was 81.

Benjamin, who played one of the three wise Brooklyn “cornermen” in Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing, began his career in 1969 as a bartender in Midnight Cowboy. He went to play small roles in Sidney Lumet’s The Anderson Tapes and Born to Win, then segued into more extensive TV work later in the 1970s.

He appeared as a death row inmate in a 1988 episode of In The Heat of the Night and also in the 1994 pilot episode of ER, which led to his recurring role of homeless man Al Ervin during the next few seasons. Benjamin also worked on the American Masters documentary of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ralph Ellison, which aired on PBS, as well as guest-starring roles in Law & Order and The Shield.

Benjamin’s other film credits include Escape From Alcatraz (1979) Some Kind of Hero (1982) opposite Richard Pryor, Martin Ritt’s drama film Nuts (1987) starring Barbra Streisand, Pink Cadillac (1989) with Clint Eastwood, Robert Townsend’s The Five Heartbeats (1991), Bill Duke’s Hoodlum (1997), and John Singleton’s Rosewood (1997).

His most recent work in the 2000s was in independent films such as Stanley’s Gig, The Station Agent, Deacons For Defense, and James Hunter’s 2005 drama Back in the Day.

Disney stars remember actor Cameron Boyce, who has died at age 20

 
Quote

Cameron Boyce, the Disney Channel actor who starred in its TV series "Jessie" and franchise "Descendants," died Saturday of "an ongoing medical condition," his family told ABC News. He was 20 years old.
 

Quote

He performed alongside Kiefer Sutherland in the horror film "Mirrors" (at the age of 9) and Shia LaBeouf in "Eagle Eye" as well as the CBS series "Code Black."
Boyce's breakout role was in the Disney series "Jessie," which he starred in for four seasons. He was best known for his leading role in "Descendants" on which he played Carlos, the son of Cruella De Vil. The actor had wrapped production on "Descendants 3," which is scheduled to premiere in August. He also starred in Disney XD's "Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything."

Boyce earned a Daytime Emmy for promotional announcement with the Disney XD series "Timeless Heroes — Be Inspired," which honored Black History Month. In the series, he appeared alongside his grandmother Jo Ann Boyce, who was one of the 12 black teens who ushered in integration at a Clinton, Tenn., public school.

Thanks for that, gebobs.  Gotta say, I miss Phil Hartman.

Oh no.  He was so great as an actor.  Course he lived hard so he kind of knew that he was not going to be a centagenarian.
