Damn.

Always funny.

While her role in Young Frankenstein remains epic, I always loved her cameo in the underrated Malcolm in the Middle as the insane grandmother terrorizing the kids with her stories about the Holocaust and other things.

And of course Bad Santa.

It's remarkable how she took that template and somehow upped the insanity as Maw-Maw on the similarly underrated Raising Hope!

To live 100 years, and serve so honorably and well in WWII, and to do such a fantastic thing to raise so much money to help people, but then to die from this fucking pandemic? Covid, fuck you! R.I.P. Colonel Tom!

Fuck.

I watched Star Trek VI with Anax's Me Mum. When he appeared she muttered, "oh good!" We joked that he did not need to be paid since his character's description was, "you are a Klingon, you have an eye-patch welded to your face, you kill a lot of people, you kick Kirk's ass, and you quote Shakespeare during this."

spark's Me Mum also recommended The Insider for his portrayal of Mike "I'm On Your Fucking Doorstep!" Wallace.

He – like Hal Holbrook – had many "big roles," but both had wonderful "little roles." Plummer as a Klingon. Holbrook as Blair in Lincoln, the infamous cryptologist in Midway, all the way to an evil little film, Can You Read My Mind.

Plummer, in a way, made A Beautiful Mind.

Anyways, when I mentioned Holbrook's passing to surprise's sister Me Mum, she mentioned she remembers how lucky she and Me Dad were to have a chance to see his one-man show of Mark Twain. I have a theatrical makeup textbook with a chapter from him on how he did his make-up. He is smoking a cigarette in almost every picture. The "point" of the textbook is the artist needed to design ears for Holbrook so he could play Lincoln in a play!

Thousands of years back, when The Dark Knight first came out, I imagined Rutger Hauer as the older Batman, with Peter O'Toole as the Joker, and, of course, Hal Holbrook as Commissioner Gordon.

Perhaps, somewhere, that can happen.









Okay, since Sigorney Weaver was Selina, I guess we can wait a few more years. John Candy was "the Milk Baby" mad bomber. Hulk Hogan was, of course, the leader of the mutant gang.

Give some solace to "Honey Bunny."

George Shultz, 100
David Hume Kennerly
@kennerly
George Shultz has passed away today at 100. I took this 40 years ago in Washington. A remarkable man. He held four Cabinet posts: Secretary of State, Treasury, Labor, and Director of OMB. The title that made him most proud? U.S. Marine.

Mary Wilson, the longest-reigning original Supreme, has died. She was 76. Wilson, Diana Ross and Florence Ballard had made up the first successful configuration of The Supremes, who had a string of No. 1 hits.

Yeah, Marty's gone, age 77. Had just recently gone into hospice with advanced dementia.

"There’s a gleam, men. There’s a gleam. Let’s get the gleam."
Link:

When he took over from Sam Rutigliano, Marty was asked if he would continue Sam's "Inner Circle" prayer meetings and Marty said something to the effect of "Inner circle, outer circle, I don't care what circle as long as they can play football."

No man is an island,
Entire of itself;
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
As well as if a promontory were:
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were.

Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
Stay classy guys.

He lost any right to not have his death mocked and celebrated when, during the height of the AIDS epidemic, he announced the names of people who died of the disease with fanfare and celebratory music. Fuck him.
