RIP the Raging Bull.  Jake Lamotta was an inspiration for all of us with aspirations and not the full talent.

Hugh Hefner has died age 91. Probably in his dressing gown surrounded by a bevy of beauties . If there is a heaven it will have to be pretty darn good for Hef to be impressed. R. I. P

So with you on that one.

Honoring Heff by enjoying my night cap wearing just pink bunny ears, fluffy pink hand cuffs and a steel studded man thong, caressing my precious companions for the night; my collection of .999 silver Playboy Bunny coins.

I'll say; Hey Babe, take a walk on the wild side... doo doo doo

Selfies wouldn't justify reality, hope I've given you unerasable images of your own imagination happy

Tom Petty... way to early.

News reporting is not what it used to be.  Remember the days when journalists had at least a shred of dignity and respect for the story and actually tried their best to ensure accuracy before broadcasting?  Now all they care about is rushing a possible story out as quickly as possible and to hell with the consequences.  I remember watching live news coverage of the Gabby Giffords incident when Wolf Blitzer announced her death, then 10 minutes later retracting "oh, sorry, my bad, she's on her way to hospital very much alive".  Gabby's husband had been watching the same coverage when they inaccurately announced her passing.  Pathetic, Wolf, pathetic.  Anyway...  rant over.


It turns out Petty is still with us, if only barely clinging on.

Indeed, he was found in his home after a heart attack and was brought to hospital where the doctors could sadly  only conclude that he was clinically dead. RIP, may your music and spirit roam forever on into the great wide open!

Unfortunately yes... now.  He was still with us until 21:00 (PDT) last night , well after the media announced it yesterday morning.  In any case, it's a real loss, no doubt

Unfortunately this is the world we live in. I was at the Manchester Arena last week to see Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. The arena has just reopened after the bombing.Standing in the queue you could feel the tension and paranoia in the air , police all over the place and sirens wailing in the background. The gig was 45 minutes late because everyone was searched before going in. This is what it has come too. Sad times.

That's another sad repercussion of violent attacks, the inherent scepticism we have for our fellow humans.  I was at a show (Xavier Rudd or Blind Guardian, I don't recall which) literally hours after the Bataclan incident in Paris.  There was a girl standing next to me in a full burka.  It was so interesting observing other people around.  There was a very distinct circle of space around us like everyone was trying to keep their distance, and people kept looking over at her or back at her and at her bag on the floor.  

Even though we all went through the same strict security and she would've been thoroughly searched, people were still clearly scared that she was about the blow the place up.  She periodically pulled into her burka such that even her face was covered (presumably to look at her phone without pulling it out) and each time she did the circle around us visibly widened.

By the end I quite felt sorry for her.  Through no fault of her own people all around were constantly sending paranoid glares her way.

Here is one for ya. It's my eldest daughter's birthday and we decided to go out for a meal.  I was getting ready and just raked about my draw for a t shirt and I decided to wear whatever I pulled out. It was an old Morrie's Wig Shop t shirt from Goodfellas. Haven't worn it in ages. Anyway I got back home to find out Chuck Low has just died. What a coincidence. Anyway R. I. P Chuck and the great Tom Petty.

It is such a tragedy to have lost the 58 (is it more yet) in Las Vegas.  I didn't know any of them but many of the victims are from southern California and only minutes from my house. 

I will also miss Tom Petty.  I had checked and knew he was in dire straights but didn't get the news until I was going to the field for work.
