Back when I was in High School anybody who didn't masturbate was beyond weird. Probably involved with incest or farm animals!


You have to give at least equal credit to "The Monkey".

Masa Saito passes away after long battle with Parkinson's disease (pro wrestler Mr. Saito)

Quote:
Masanori Saito, a former Olympian as an amateur wrestler and Hall of Famer as a pro, passed away on Saturday after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

Saito was 76.

Saito had the most successful long-term career of any Japanese native on the American scene, being a championship-level wrestler in multiple territories from 1968 to 1990. While Giant Baba in the 60s, Great Muta, and now Shinsuke Nakamura were as big or bigger stars, Saito spent the majority of his career in the United States as opposed to a brief version, and was always a headliner as a former Olympian who was a top tier in-ring worker, even with limited English speaking ability.

During most of his career he played the stereotypical salt-throwing Japanese heel, a role mostly played by Hawaiians rather than Japanese wrestlers in the 60s.

I just discovered the news that Phil Hoskins' life partner Ron Thomas also passed away on May 3rd.

Quote:
"This is the saddest message I have ever had to post.....

It is with great regret that I have to announce that one of our dearest friends has passed away.

Ron Thomas has lost a painful battle with grief and depression after losing his longtime partner Phil Hoskins last fall.

Anyone who ever crossed paths with Ron fell in love with him immediately. He was one of the happiest and intelligent individuals that I have ever met, and my world was blessed having him as a close friend for over 2 decades.

Out of respect and wishes for the family, no specific details will be released yet, and we hope that you please respect these wishes.

I feel sick, saddened, and angry that such a beautiful soul is gone."

Patrick Williams, Emmy-Winning TV Composer, Dies at 79

Quote:
Patrick Williams, who was best-known for his Emmy-winning television music but who was also a renowned and Grammy-winning big-band jazz leader and arranger, died Wednesday morning of complications from cancer at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. He was 79.

Williams was among the most versatile composers of his generation, earning an Oscar nomination (for adapting opera in “Breaking Away,” 1979), four Emmys (for dramatic music including “Lou Grant,” 1980) and two Grammys (for arrangements including his classic jazz album “Threshold,” 1974) during more than 50 years of music-making in New York and Los Angeles.

In the middle of his most prolific period, scoring music for TV including “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Bob Newhart Show” and “The Streets of San Francisco,” he was also nominated for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in music for his groundbreaking “An American Concerto” (1976) for jazz quartet and symphony orchestra.

Bill Loud, the Father of TV’s ‘An American Family,’ Dies at 97

Quote:
Bill Loud was not the first person to play the role of a father on television. What made him a pioneer was that he was not acting — and that he was often not acting responsibly.

In 1973, when PBS broadcast “An American Family,” Mr. Loud, who died on Thursday in Los Angeles at 97, was the tan and philandering head of an affluent real-life household whose domestic dramas in Santa Barbara, Calif., were captured on camera for 300 hours and edited into 12 hourlong episodes now regarded as the genesis of reality television.

“An American Family” shocked American families. Aired with the imprimatur of public broadcasting, it was portrayed as sociological exploration, not exploitation, and although many people found it irresistible, it was also hard to watch.
