    In fact, West did once turn up at what he described as an “orgy” in Hollywood with Frank Gorshin, who played “Batman” baddie The Riddler.

    But they were thrown out for behaving like their TV alter-egos and making everyone laugh.

    He said: “We walked in and it was an orgy. So I immediately went into the Batman character, and Frank went into the Riddler character, because we were getting the big giggles. It was so funny to us, what we walked into. And we were kicked out. We were expelled from the orgy.”

    Meanwhile, trusty Boy Wonder Ward, who is now 71, claimed West was definitely the ringleader when it came to their own adventures.

    He recalled decades later: “When I entered ‘Batman’ as a naive 20-year-old who had only dated a couple of girls, I met Adam West, who immediately introduced me to the wildest sexual debauchery that you can imagine. We often found that women were banging on our windows while we were bedded down with other women.”

    Martin Landau, at 89. He was great in Mission Impossible back in the 60's, but I think his two best roles were in Ed Wood and, my favorite, Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    I loved his role in Entourage

    What if I were to tell you......is that something you'd be interested in? The Ari quote mocking Bob was a good one.

    Chester Bennington killed himself this morning. For those of you who don't know he's the singer of Linkin Park and spent some time singing for Stone Temple Pilots.

Looks like he travelled 400 miles from where he lived in Studio City to Palo Alto for his surgery. That didn't work out too well for him.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know that he was a playright. And he wasn't a playright in the sense that Seattleute claims to be an author or William Shatner claims to have musical career. He won a pulitzer prize.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I saw a clip of Matthew McConaughey being notify of his passing while being interviewed. He was noticeably shaken.

    Still remember his "Idaho is too great to litter" signs all over the place. Of course the signs are still there but now they don't have his name plastered on every one.

    One of my favorite SF authors from the '70s/80s just passed - Jerry Pournelle

    His most famous work was probably "A Mote in Gods Eye" about a first contact with an alien species

    He also cowrote several good books with Larry Niven, including one based on Dante's Inferno

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."

    Hüsker Dü was one of those band that I always meant to get into, but never really did.

    I did like some of Bob Mould's solo stuff.

    Black Sheets of Rain was the soundtrack to my middle school years.

    Husker Du is definitely not a band for everyone, but they spoke to me. I didn't get into them until long after they disbanded. I only knew about them because my cousin's friend introduced me to Bob Mould's solo stuff.

    I really like Grant's compositions. Mould rightly gets a lot of credit, but Grant held his own. Probably his most well known composition:



    He had some great songs on the New Day Rising album as well.
