This just took me on a journey looking up all those guys. I remembered that both Shearer and Guest were on SNL. But I thought it was before Spinal Tap, not after. I guess I wasn't aware of Spinal Tap until years later on video.

And one bizarre thing I learned was that Christopher Guest (who is married to Jamie Lee Curtis) is a freaking Baron. But because he and Jamie Lee Curtis couldn't have kids and adopted them instead, his kids won't inherit the title. It will go to his brother when he dies.

And apparently he's a bit of a prick.

Really? The ever-funny Guest is a Baron, and a prick to boot?

He and Jamie have been married for like, ever.

Harlan Pepper: I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, "Harlan Pepper, if you don't stop naming nuts," and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that's what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she'd just start yelling. I'd say, "Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut." That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She'd say, "Would you stop naming nuts!" And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn't talk, but he'd go "rrrawr rrawr" and that sounded like Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut.

Donna Summer dead at 63. Fuck cancer.

Thanks for She Works Hard For the Money, Donna, it was an anthem for many of us 80s girls.

Already knows, she's seen her bad times
Already knows, these are the good times
She'll never sell out, she never will
Not for a dollar bill
She works haaaaard (for the money)

Yeah, I hated, HATED disco, but I was kinda bummed when I read Donna Summer died.

infinite monkey 05-17-2012 02:07 PM

We ALL hated disco, after junior high.

But I like that old stuff now. ;)

Speaking of disco(-era) music, Chuck Brown left us yesterday.

Johnny Tapia, boxing champ five times over, found dead.

This guy was The Underdog From Hell. Watched him fight, albeit on tv, several times.

Dude had a sad life.

Guitar legend Doc Watson died yesterday.

His musical accomplishments are cool and all, but I want to know how a blind man wired his house himself. How do you tell the black wire from the white wire?
