I only had Pretzel Logic in my collection, pretty sure it was a Columbia House thing. I listened to it often. They lost me when Aja came out.

My intramural softball team at North Texas State was called the "Deacon Blues."

I was with everyone else on the hate train until a few years ago when I gave them a shot. I've never cared much about composition and musicianship in anything, but they wrote good tunes. The album I return to most is Donald Fagen's first solo, The Nightfly.

Dave Hlubek, founding lead guitarist for Molly Hatchet, passed away.

Dave hadn't performed a sit-up in many years.

Today was a tough day for country singers. Don Williams died at age 78. My parents had a cassette of his on heavy rotation on road trips when I was growing up. I Believe in Love is a personal favorite of mine.

A helicopter crash is sparing all of us from some future bro country by taking the life of the Gentry half of Montgomery Gentry. I think he was 50.

I loved Don Williams back in the day, and still do. Top five all-time country singer for me.

On the subject of "I Believe in Love," I was dozing off on the couch one Sunday afternoon and that song was on. After the line, "I don't believe virginity is as common as it used to be" played, the DJ cut in and said, "it ain't." I'm pretty sure I was listening to KPLX.

Frank Vincent has passed on. Phil Leotardo on The Sopranos and Billy Batts in Goodfellas. His death scene on The Sopranos is one of my favorite scenes from the show.

Sorry to nitpick, but he was 72 so you get an extra point.

Spaz doubles his points and declares himself as a contenda. Watch your collective asses.

I also noticed that Bernie Casey died. I have seen him in several shows, but had no idea he was the same guy I saw playing wideout for the Rams in the sixties. I am clueless about TV and movies.

Perhaps he would have recovered had they stopped dragging his heart around.

The main thing I'm getting out of this death is a new word: fucko. I'm going down to the high school in a little bit and try it out.

I came to post the exact same thing. Hell, if I keep the same people on the list year after year, they'll eventually croak and I'll get points.

I can't believe this guy made it to 89.

Roy Halladay dead of plane crash at age 40.

He's a Hall of Famer, IMO. Sucks.

No one had him.

None of us had the great John Hillerman, who is mostly known for playing Higgins on Magnum, PI. This show was on during a dark period where I rarely watched TV. But I regularly watched this show.

His wiki page doesn't even mention his second-greatest role, which was as Howard Johnson on Blazing Saddles.

He was 84.

Loved that show as a kid, and tried a rewatch of it on Hulu a while back, but couldn’t fight through one of magnum’s Vietnam war flashbacks. So much for that trek down memory lane.

My great aunt was the hostess at a fancy French restaurant in Houston in the late 80s. She regularly seated celebs when they came in for dinner and she always talked about how cool it was to seat Higgins when he was in the restaurant one time.
