    "Game over man, game over!"... Bill Paxton Passes at 61.

    I joke, but he was a great actor who was in so many huge and/or memorable films... Titanic, Aliens, Apollo 13, The Terminator, Weird Science, Near Dark, Tombstone, etc. etc.

    Definitely went too young. And he always cracked me up somehow.

    EJ Dionne: Modern-day conservatism isn't conservatism. It's reaction rooted in deep pessimism that isn't in keeping with the American character.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Yes. Apparently he's going to live on, he's going to survive.

    I'm amazed with each passing day that Tom Sizemore keeps beating the odds.

    When Sizemore does finally pass, cause of death will no doubt be listed as
    'All of the Above'.

    sorry. Robert Osborne died too.

    i've been on a david lynch kick. catching up with twin peaks, as showtime is airing new episodes written and directed by the man himself. thus the lost highway ref.

    he can be so funny, like the hearing impaired fbi chief he plays on twin peaks, who will yell, "this is all hush-hush!"



    the series feels like a soap opera version of blue velvet, without sacrificing much.

    of the other showtime series i can recommend, i've binged on dexter and the first two seasons of homeland.

    and rip, bill paxton.
