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, Alfred! (July 13, 1961 – June 19, 1980)
I had such a busy day on what would have been Alfred’s 56th birthday. I went to the Boston/Joan Jett and the Blackhearts concert at the TD Garden in Boston and just got back after midnight.
It’s sad that my older brother died at a young age because of a car accident he was in. He lost control of his Camero and crashed into a tree on Father’s Day (June 15, 1980) and died a few days later from his head injury. Very devastating for me and my family. At the time, I did not know (and well as others) that I was an autistic teenager of 15. The emotional turmoil tore me apart.
Tragedies happen, and all we have to do is figure out how to cope with the sorrow.
Happy 12th Birthday, Outside In!
I’ve been at this for 12 years with this blog. No sign of stopping this. More like keep on keeping on. What a long road with this blog!
I hope this blog is making more people understand and accept autistic people over the span of 12 years. I plan continuing with that goal.
Understanding and acceptance are very important these days. Better than violence and death.

Happy Birthday, Huey Lewis!
Huey is one of my favorite singers. He’s having his day. Note: His real name is Hugh Anthony Cregg III!
Just saw Huey Lewis and the News back on June 20 at the House of Blues in Boston. It was a great show!!! I had a great time! This is one of my photos of Huey at that show!
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.
