Anyone remember those ads on the other channels that had Slim Whitman singing and hawkin' his records? Just before the pan flute guy and Boxcar Willie started there's. Well anyway I hear ol Slim was down to seeds and stems when he borrowed 10 grand to cut an album and advertise it for 6 months. He made a pile a dough on that investment and could still pack 'em in until he retired. Bet on yourself if you believe in your self and the rest will come. He was the first self advertised star to come outta that batch. I don't think you can do that now without a sponsor or live in Branson, Missouri.

Michael Hastings was "killed" in an auto accident a couple a daze back. He was one of the new good guys reporting the facts and not what was "told" to all embedded reporters. I'm gonna miss his style. He wrote a very good book about a US general in Afghanistan's behavior. I believe it lead to that generals demise.
He also wrote for Buzzfeed.com.

I'm gonna miss Michael's tenacity period! Bummer, man and only 33 too!

Your right jpd, thanx! My bad. I fixed the error. It's Michael Hastings not Richard Hastings. :oops:

Richard Matheson, famed Science Fiction writer. Wrote many Twilight Zone episodes as well. So sad.

As a sf fan, I certainly have to give a tip my hat to Richard Matheson for writing some great stories. Usually the ones tinged with a horror element were my favorites. When I was a kid I saw the film The Incredible Shrinking Man and it really disturbed me,but in a good way. Check out his wikipedia page and you'll see he did numerous great stories published as books as well as various screenplays.

He played on all of DEVO's "important" albums. And the weird thing is, he was DEVO's former drummer three times as long as he was DEVO's drummer.

It's a beautiful world...

Nelson Mandela is on life support. He could die at any time, or he could linger for a long time.

Most likely, his family will make the call...

Last news cycle on 6/27 his family said he was still aware of who they are and are hoping he'll rally back. It sounded more like a hopeful wish, rather than based on the facts.
He's still a great man, a legend in his own time, loved by his and all peoples of the world. That's a rare thing, a good thing and I wish him well.
