    "And I'm a wild bull rider and I love my rodeo
    I'd ride that bull to hell and back for the money and the show
    Yeah, my pappy was a pistol, I'm a son of a gun
    I ride wild bulls just to have some fun
    And the higher they get is a little too low for me
    Said, the higher they get is a little too low for me"
    (Hoyt Axton)

    Yeah, he was 35 when principle photography started on Rocky. He wasn't in his 40s until the 3rd one.

    Piper Laurie, Reluctant Starlet Turned Respected Actress, Dies at 91

    upload_2023-10-19_16-57-18.jpeg

    Piper Laurie, the celebrated actress known for her chilling portrayal of the overbearingly religious mother in “Carrie” and for playing Paul Newman’s down-in-the-dumps girlfriend in “The Hustler,” has died at 91, her manager said. {Now probably better known for Twin Peaks.}

    I love that there's a massive gap in her film career between The Hustler and Carrie because she mostly did Broadway and a handful of episodes of TV.

    Richard Roundtree, an icon of Blaxploitation film who starred as detective John Shaft in Gordon Parks’ 1971 action thriller, died Tuesday afternoon after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 81 years old.

    “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film,” {Roundtree’s manager, Patrick} McMinn said in his statement. “The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

    Obviously he's known for Night Court, and for voicing Two Face in one of the animated Batman shows, but he also had a really good special appearance on The Facts of Life.

    I don't know why, but Matthew Perry's death is bothering me more than most.
