I don't know if you all realize how tiny Prince was. Friends and I visited his club Glam Slam in Minneapolis a few times in the late 80s/early 90s. One night he walked by me on his way to the DJ booth. Without heels I'm 5'8". My shoes that night probably were 2 inches so I say I was standing about 5'10". The top of Prince's head came up to my shoulder. And he always wore high heels.

I think Morley, Andy and Charles enjoyed their 'jobs' and didn't feel the need or desire to retire. When you're doing something you love to do as much as each of these men were blessed to do, retiring is not something that brings joy but rather ends what means the most to you in your life.

Tom Hayden

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-tom-hayden-dead-chicago-seven-20161024-story.htm

I grew up in Chicago and turned 12 in 1968, the year the city was torn first by the MLK riots and then the anti-war riots during the Democratic convention. That fall I had a social studies teacher who was the quintessential hippie chick, and who was vehemently against the war, and who was ironically dating a Chicago cop.

Not long after we had the ridiculous show trial of Tom Hayden and the Chicago Seven. I've been a political news junkie ever since that year.

A couple of years later we were visiting the Smithsonian and it had a whole area dedicated to MASH.

http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/johnny+mandel/suicide+is+painless_20801409.html

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

I try to find a way to make
All our little joys relate
Without that ever-present hate
But now I know that it's too late, and

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
So this is all I have to say

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

The only way to win is cheat
And lay it down before I'm beat
And to another give my seat
For that's the only painless feat

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger watch it grin, but

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be
And I replied 'Oh, why ask me? '

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

'Cause suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

Re: He Dead. - 03/14/18 03:40 PM

The Theory of Everything did a lot to bring Hawking's life in front of millenials and the public at large. He was an amazing man who accomplished so much, most of it after his ALS diagnosis.

I didn't know this tho: "At the release party for the home video version of the A Brief History of Time, Leonard Nimoy, who had played Spock on Star Trek, learned that Hawking was interested in appearing on the show. Nimoy made the necessary contact, and Hawking played a holographic simulation of himself in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1993. The same year, his synthesiser voice was recorded for the Pink Floyd song "Keep Talking"."

Nor did I know he had his voice copywrited and "due to the American accent on his voice synthesizer, many people have no idea that he was really British. He has said he would like to replace it with a synthesizer with a British accent, but he had become so synonymous with his that he knew he couldn't."

Lots of interesting quotes from him here. I especially like the one about computer virus.

I've seen several Broadway plays written by Neil Simon, so much talent, he will be missed.

John McCain, while you may not agree with his politics, he certainly served our country for many years (many people are not aware that his wife runs a major beer distributor and is a millionaire times over and he didn't need to be in public office, he wanted to be in public office).

may they both rest in peace.

if you are calling your brother, why is your phone ringing? shouldn't his be the one ringing?

and nothing was better than White Line Fever...he was the baddest of the bad in the film...

Wow, White Line Fever is a blast from the past. I remember the part where they killed that one guy by holding him in front of the truck. That was a disturbing scene to say the least.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Prine

Health problems
In early 1998, Prine was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer on the right side of his neck. He had major surgery to remove a substantial amount of diseased tissue, followed by six weeks of radiation therapy.[36] The surgery removed a piece of his neck and severed a few nerves in his tongue, while the radiation damaged some salivary glands. A year of recuperation and speech therapy was necessary before he could perform again.[37] The operation altered his vocals, and added a gravelly tone to his voice.[38]

In 2013, Prine underwent surgery to remove cancer in his left lung. After the surgery, a physical therapist put him through an unusual workout to build stamina: Prine was required to run up and down his house stairs, grab his guitar while still out of breath and sing two songs. Six months later, he was touring again.[37]
