Rot in hell, Rush! You can fondle that presidential medal while Satan uses barbed wire for anal beads.

Gotta wonder in cases like this, do high profile cigar guys get, like, an "In Memoriam" piece in CIGAR AFICIONADO?

Should I send my old man a condolence card?

My mom texted me. I've never sent back anything other than a typed-out text to her in my life. I tapped the message and reacted "love" on my iPhone.

I don't wish death on anyone, nor cancer. But I cannot empathize with the circumstances happening to such a hateful, disgusting pig who fanned flames for far more unhinged characters to enter the mainstream media.

May he burn in hell.

I've never really been one to believe in the concept of hell, but the image of Satan shoving an apple in that pig's mouth and roasting him over an open pit of fire is just too good to pass up.

I’m glad he’s dead.

Remember that time he got caught trying to sneak Viagra (although the prescription wasn't even his IIRC) back into the country after he went on a little sex tourism sojourn? Very Christian!

Or the time he had his maid go pick up Oxy for him at like a Denny's? Super Conservative!

Yep, in addition to having a bad take on literally everything, he was also the kind of person he'd shit on (if that person weren't him).

Good shit on Twitter today, e.g.

"No matter what you thought of him, you have to admit: He's dead."

"Please lower all confederate flags to half-staff."

"You made me who I am today. I'll never forget the days of getting picked up from school and hearing you on the radio, and thinking I want to be the opposite of whatever this is."

At least his cancer is now at peace.

Just heard about Prince Markie Dee.

11 or 12, I was just the right age for The Fat Boys when they hit. So many fun memories of listening to their early stuff with friends. Underrated because of the gimmick of their weight and the slob humor, they were an essential New School group.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, perhaps the last of the Beat poets, although his work and influence extended far beyond them. He was 101.

Naw, there's several of them left.*

**Not Lawrence Ferlinghetti, though.  He recently passed away.

I wonder how many obits will omit his daughter's sexual abuse allegations.

NYT put it in the sub-header. This is a more complete obit overall:

It's in the Variety article too. I wonder why THR didn't include it.

Frank Lupo, who was a producing partner to Stephen J. Cannell in the 80's, and co-creator of The A-Team, Hunter, Wiseguy and the short-lived but quite good Raven passed away:

Comics artist Frank Thorne, whose 1970s Red Sonja run remains definitive. He was 90, and reports are that his wife Marilyn has also passed. No more details as yet:

Marvelous Marvin Hagler-age 66. One of the greatest fighters of all time, who fought during boxing's Golden Age (late 70's and 80's).
If you've never seen his war with Tommy Hearns you're in for a treat....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASe3GTXgC1o

Possibly the greatest Round 1 in boxing history.
Reply
Hagler v Hearns was an incredible fight. Hell of a sequence of defences, including Duran. I'm old enough to remember the Minter fight, when he won the title. Bitter build up as the Minter camp decided to make it a race thing, and some awful scenes afterwards as the drunken local crowd kicked off.

ETA: possibly the best thing I discovered today was from the Wiki article on Hagler. Apparently he ended up starring in Italian cheapo action flicks, including one alongside an Italian actor named...Terence Hill. Which is about the most British name I have ever heard.
Reply
"Some Italian actor named Terrence Hill." Lol you don't watch a lot of spaghetti westerns do you?

Reply
Only the good ones.

I'm just amused that an Italian actor in manly man films would choose a name that sounds more appropriate for an English librarian.
Reply
Wiki:

(ETA: He's not dead)

"Girotti changed his name to "Terence Hill". He took "Hill" from his wife's mother's name and "Terence" from a book on Roman poets."
"I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on Earth."--Steve McQueen

I'm sure he had a process. Still incongrous.

There is nothing less Italian than a Terence. Except maybe a Kevin. Or a Trevor. Or a Sinead.
Reply
I thought Terence Hill had died!

Please be more careful in this thread.

Dang, sorry. I completely lost track of what thread this was.
