Sad that now it’s been 40 years since Elvis Presley passed away. He is still missed after all this time. It was a very tragic day in 1977. I was watching a rerun of The Monkees when the broadcast was interrupted by a news anchorman reporting the bad news about Elvis.
Happy 84th Birthday, Julie Newmar!
Today is Julie’s 84 birthday! Her most recognizable role is that of Catwoman on the 1966 series, Batman. Hope your meowing at your gifts, Julie!
Julie also guest-starred on Star Trek.
Julie shows off her piano playing on My Living Doll, a TV series that she did with Bob Cummings.
Last but not lease, Julie made a guest appearance on The Monkees.
Very sad news that I heard on Sunday night! Actor Martin Landau of Mission: Impossible and Space 1999 had died Saturday night after being taken to the hospital. He also appeared in movies like North By Northwest, Crimes and Misdemeanors, and Ed Wood. He earned an Oscar for playing the famous actor, Bela Lugosi, in Ed Wood. He was 89 years old.
Happy Birthday, Ringo Starr!!!
The Beatles drummer is asking for peace and love on his birthday!
Coming this fall, Ringo has a new album!!!
It was back on this day in 1971 when Jim Morrison of the Doors died in Paris, France.
It was on this day in 1969 when Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones died shortly after he quit the group.
I really love this quote:
“This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full, and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within.”
I’m enjoying the return of this cult TV series on the Showtime channel. Only ten more episodes left.
David Lynch is a true artist.
Great appearance by Nine Inch Nails
Very sad news to report and the most devastating news this year (imho)! Actor Adam West who played Batman back in the 1960s and Mayor Adam West on Family Guy passed away last night after a bout with Leukemia.
I had just seen Adam West and Burt Ward back in March at a comic book convention at the Hanover Mall in Massachusetts. It was a wonderful event. I had no idea it would be my last time I would ever see him.
I grew up watching Adam West on the series Batman during the 1970s. I still catch a rerun on either MeTV or Decades channel when I have the time. He made me very happy. I met him for the first time back in 2002 with Julie Newmar (Catwoman) and Yvonne Craig (Batgirl).
