Yes indeed.  My uncle served there.  Wouldn't say a thing about it.  He would tell me about the battles that followed but never Normandy.


Raised!

Arturo Fernandez. Spanish actor, sex symbol, legend, died today at the age of 90. Probably he seduced the nurses of the hospital too. Spanish people borned from 50 to nowdays have a body composition of 70% water, 25% flesh and 5% of Arturo Fernandez. Rest in peace chatin!

For the American baseball fans, I raise a glass as an Angel has joined the angels.   Tyler Skaggs, pticher for the Angels, passed away at the age of 27.  At this time, all we know is he was found unresponsive.  RIP Tyler.

Ross Perot.   What a feisty fellow.  The United States could've used a good 3rd party candidate like him in the last election.

Versatile character actor Rip Torn lived to a good age of 88 which is quite impressive considering the life he led.

Before Perot died, he wrote two checks to Donald Trump.  He was a Trump supporter, which makes sense given his disposition.

Fact check.  Ross Perot Jr, not Sr.

Is it self obsession or lack of imagination that make rich people name their first born son after themselves, having to add Jr?

Both... and apparently Ross Jr has a Jr of his own, who has the added bonus of being able to go by the pretentious title of Ross the Third.

I once worked with a guy who's name wouldn't translate to the feminine very well... but he was so full of himself that when he inevitably had not a son but a daughter he named her after himself by adding an 'a' at the end of his name.  His second daughter he named after his brother in the same fashion.  Those poor girls...

Here's to Rutger Hauer, icon of Dutch cinema who made a fine vilain in Blade Runner, probably the role that made him in Hollywood

Absolute legend.

I've seen things you people would not believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate . All those moments will be lost in time....like tears in rain....time to Die. R.I.P

He passed away on Friday?   Strange coincidence, last week I dusted off and was listening to an Arjen Anthony Lucassen solo album with Hauer in a speaking role. As his character says, "what quantum mindf*ck is that?"

Might have to pull out Ladyhawke tonight.

Yeah same here mate. 

I've decided to watch The Hired Hand instead. This was a lost classic of his until Martin Scorsese personally funded its rebirth.
