I just learned of the death of John Abercrombie. Such great music came out of him. RIP

Tobe Hooper is a real shame. I always had a real soft spot for TCM 2 - everybody else seems to hate it, but I LOVED the scene in radio station; "MUSIC is my life".

Former Villanova Basketball Coach Rollie Massimino Dies at Age 82

Image

Former Villanova Wildcats basketball coach Rollie Massimino died Wednesday at age 82. The university confirmed his death on its official athletics website.

Massimino coached the Wildcats for 19 years and compiled a 355-241 record at the school. In 1985, he helped lead the Wildcats to a national championship victory over the Georgetown Hoyas in what's considered one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history.

Upon leaving Villanova in 1992, Massimino coached the UNLV Rebels for two seasons and finished his coaching career with the Cleveland State Vikings, where he stayed for seven years.

Massimino's 481 career victories are tied for 74th all time in Division I. He won 298 more games with the Keiser Seahawks, an NAIA program in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Massimino was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.

^^I had a chance to talk to Harold Pressley one time who played on that 1985 team (and later the Sacramento Kings). Nice guy.

Mr. Anderson also had a good, small role in this film about military take-over of the U.S. government.

Sounds similar to "Canarsie, where everyone looks the same." :mrgreen:

Conversation between my wife and I just now, as I'm listening to Steely Dan:

her: Here's the problem; that music's a little loud.
me: One of the guys in Steely Dan died.
her: Are you in mourning?
me: Yeah, kind of.
her: I didn't know you liked Steely Dan.
me: I like them a lot.
her: I didn't know that.
me: There's a lot about me you don't know.
her: Oh really.
me: Yeah, I'm also a paid assassin.
her: I wouldn't mind, if the money was good.

RIP Walter Becker.

I was huge with Dan in the 70,s and early 80's...waiting for their releases were filled with anticipation...RIP Walter... :(

While the music played, you worked by candlelight
Those San Francisco nights
You were the best in town
Just by chance you crossed the diamond with the pearl


You turned it on the world
That's when you turned the world around
(Did you feel like Jesus?)
Did you realize
That you were a champion in their eyes?


On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen-clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home


Every A-Frame had your number on the wall
You must have had it all
You'd go to L.A. on a dare and you'd go it alone
(Could you live forever?)
Could you see the day?
Could you feel your whole world fall apart and fade away?


Now your patrons have all left you in the red
Your low-rent friends are dead
This life can be very strange
All those day-glo freaks who used to paint the face


They've joined the human race
Some things will never change
(Son, you were mistaken)
You are obsolete
Look at all the white men on the street


Clean this mess up else we'll all end up in jail
Those test-tubes and the scale
Just get it all out of here


Is there gas in the car?
Yes, there's gas in the car
I think the people down the hall know who you are


'Cause the man is wise
You are still an outlaw in their eyes


Written by Donald Jay Fagen, Walter Carl Becker
