Dammit!

Excellent drummer. Can't imagine what he went through, watching his brother get murdered in front of him on stage.

Harlan Ellison, American writer, 84. Ellison was responsible for what is likely the single most highly-regarded original Star Trek episode, "The City on the Edge of Forever", and is also pretty well remembered by film buffs for A Boy and His Dog, based on his novella, but he had an enormously prolific career with several other film credits, many TV credits, and hundreds of short stories, longer fiction, essays, poems, etc.

Oh, bummer! 78 seems young for a DP for some reason, I thought those guys were all supposed to live into their 90s. Anyway for his work with Wenders and Jarmusch he deserves a place in the pantheon, but I think I'll rewatch To Live and Die in L.A. tonight in his honor - a film I wasn't crazy about when I first saw it, but which stands out very strongly in memory for the visuals alone.

I did watch it again last night, and I wouldn't say it went to *love* but it did go to "like more than most". Yeah, the soundtrack is great, Petersen and Dafoe are great - the rest of the cast is a little more variable - and the chase sequences, the 2 short foot chases and the epic car chase, are amazing. I'm not sure what it adds up to in the end, and it seems to be trying to be more than just a violent action movie, but it's certainly lots of fun. Shame that Petersen never had a more significant film career, he had a great start with this and Manhunter, but I guess he's more of a theater guy anyway.

Steve Ditko, co-creator and original artist of Spider-man and Dr. Strange, 90. He lived alone in an apartment in NYC and wasn't found for a few days after he died. A complete recluse apparently who shunned the spotlight and was known for his rather unorthodox, even crank attitudes about comics, politics and more, with a very very long career in comics, he'll still always be known mostly for the distinctive style he brought to those early 60s Marvel comics, very different from the work of the more famous and prolific Jack Kirby.

A bit late, but I only found out yesterday. Sean Rouse died of a heart attack, June 29, 43 years old.

Best known for his stand-up, but he also did some acting (Men in Black 2).

A fine written Eulogy if any one is interested. http://www.vulture.com/amp/2018/07/doug ... rouse.html

Neil Simon, 91, probably the best-known American comedy playwright and screenwriter of the last 50 years. Nominated for 17 Tony awards and 4 Oscars, winning 3 of the Tonys, his best-known work includes the screenplays (usually based on his own plays) for The Odd Couple, Sweet Charity, Plaza Suite, The Heartbreak Kid, The Goodbye Girl and Brighton Beach Memoirs.

Some of my earliest movie-related memories relate to Burt Reynolds - not seeing his movies, but talking about them with classmates. Smokey and the Bandit was probably just about as popular as Star Wars at my middle school, and when a teacher polled the students about their favorite actors - somewhere around 1979-80 I'm guessing - Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood were the top two choices. I was a sci-fi nerd and didn't care much about those guys at the time but they were a couple of the people I was always conscious of long before I was at all serious about movies. Burt definitely had the charm, the animal magnetism as it were, but he probably could have had a better career or at least made some better movies; not sure if it was him or his agent, or what, but it strikes me that there ought to be more good movies on that resume. RIP

Should I (re)watch City Heat as a memorial? Hmmm.

I watched Hustle a few months ago, it was really solid overall, with a great (and surprising) ending; his western Navajo Joe was decent also, but alas there's not a lot else I've seen that I would really recommend. Cannonball Run is in competition for "worst movie of all time" for me, but keep in mind that the huge-expensive-chase-comedy is my least-favorite kind of movie.

Well, it's a comedy, and I watched ot when I was 8-10, so it's nostalgic. But Dom DeLuise and Burt Reynolds was a great team even if the stories were lacking.

Yeah, just not my kind of humor at all. I didn't even like Smokey in the Bandit once I finally got around to seeing it. Maybe it's also memories (some childhood, some more recent) of being around the kind of rednecks that stuff is particularly aimed at. Strangely enough there's plenty of redneck-lowbrow-country humor that I like - the Dukes of Hazzard TV series remains a guilty pleasure - but Reynolds, especially in the company of DeLuise, leaves me cold when he enters that territory. I think maybe I'll watch (or re-watch, if I actually ever saw it) Sharky's Machine tonight, and maybe Fuzz which I know I've never seen and which has the compensation of Raquel Welch even if it ends up otherwise crap.

I once was out with friends, and this woman I know told the story of how her boyfriend (who was present) had seen a black velvet painting of the famous Burt-Reynolds-naked-on-a-bearskin picture at a yard sale in high desert California. Then she started berating her boyfriend for not buying it. And not in a funny way. She was really angry that he didn't buy that painting.

At the time, I thought her outburst was weird, aggressive, and very amusing. But looking back on it later, I had to agree that he probably should have bought that painting.
