A very sad day... Zulu, who played 'Kono' on 'Hawaii Five-0,' has died. Although I am too young to know the show during it's original run, I became a huge fan due to syndication. You have no idea how much I love that show. We're talking Simpsons, M*A*S*H, Five-0.
Rest in peace, Gilbert.

Most people remember Ustinov as Batiatus from Spartacus, Nero from Quo Vadis, or Hercule Poirot from many an Agatha Christie movie, but I'll always remember him as Ballard from Logan's Run. He was an accomplished and acclaimed actor, writer, director, and producer, as well as a humanitarian and all-around good guy. RIP, Pete.

Eddie Clontz, longtime editor of the Weekly World News and the man responsible for Bat Boy and Ed Anger, has died of complications from diabetes at 56. Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten said it best: "Here was a man who simply refused, as a matter of principle, to allow truth to get in the way of a great story."

Another familiar childhood personality bites the dust. This time, it's Captain K. Thats right folks, Captain Kangaroo.
Known for his corny children's show back when I was growing up, Bob Keeshan, died today at age 76 - the cause, a 'long illness' - WTF?! Personally, I suspect the moose did it with all those ping pong balls... then again, it could have been Mr. Greenjeans, too...
Knowing that these celeb deaths seem to happen in threes - who do you 'spose'll be the next couple to croak?

Today, Fred Berry of the 70's sitcom What's Happenin!! has officially been pronounced dead at 52.
What bothers me even more than Re-Run kickin the bucket is onset of a grim realization that so many of our quirky television role-models of days gone by are dropping off like flies. Yes, I know its inevitable, but who the fuck is going to replace them? In my opinion, the 80's spawned a bunch of shite; I mean what did they give us? Screech? Michael Knight? fucking Urkel!?
Sad days are ahead indeed. As an avid television junkie back in the day, Re-Run's death really hits home...
Enjoy your dirtnap you silly black fatman - we'll miss ya.

Johnny Cash, one of the most influental and prolific musicians of the last 50 years, has passed on. In a seemingly unrelated incident, John Ritter has kicked the bucket as well. They always go in threes - who's going to round out this week's celebrity death trio?

Warren Zevon, after years of hard livin' and celebrating the 1-year anniversary of when doctors predicted his death in 3 months, has finally kicked off. A great musician and an idiosyncratic weirdie, all rolled into one. RIP.
