Ken Thorne, who wrote the score for Help! - for which he was nominated for a Grammy along with the Beatles - passed away yesterday. And I was just thinking about this intro today. It'll mean less to UK fans, but I grew up with this lead-in, and I can't imagine the song Help! without it.

I love the instrumentals in Help!, you can tell what songs they're meant to be, but they take different forms than the originals, very good orchestration. It's very sad to hear of the man behind it's death.

apple01 and heart to his family and friends.

James Garner's film and TV work outside of his more well-known roles as Maverick and later as Rockford were an amazing achievement.  Aside from the "Support Your Local" movies mentioned by Zig, which were seamlessly satisfying, there were so many others.  His 1990 made-for-TV movie "Decoration Day" for example was so excellent a depiction of heartwarming human values like honor, honesty, love and loss, that when I saw it I thought if I had achieved as an artist something that solid and worthy, I could have died right then and there.  And that's just one of several of his efforts over the years that transcended normalcy, even while grounded in it with his wry and earthy persona.  Others were "Heartsounds" -- a drama co-starring Mary Tyler Moore, who rose to the challenge eminently. 

It was great to see him with Joanne Woodward in "Breathing Lessons" (1994), and the script and direction were superb -- proving once again that Garner seemed only to choose projects that were high quality.  Yet another example of that was his 1986 movie "Promise" co-starring James Woods, playing Garner's disturbed younger brother suffering from schizophrenia.  Although the drama seemed to provide more substance to the role of the younger brother, Garner's love and frustration and anger at having to take care of his younger brother involved subtler acting, quite moving.

Speaking of eminent co-stars, the 1996 political comedy "My Fellow Americans" -- with Garner as a Democratic ex-President and Jack Lemmon as a Republican ex-President, both who hate each other's guts but are suddenly thrown into a conspiracy where they have to join forces against some evil villains -- was immensely entertaining (notwithstanding all the sourpuss critics who panned the movie).  I was so delighted at the time to see Jack and Jim together for the first time in their long and illustrious careers having fun disporting their complementary talents in such a fun vehicle.

Then there was "Murphy's Romance" (1985) a thoroughly charming story about an older man (age 60) falling in love with a younger woman (Sally Fields, who although 39 at the time, could have easily been in her late 20s).  Another of his films I'll never forget was "Skin Game" (1971), a Western comedy co-starring Louis Gosset, Jr., with some of the most trenchant and witty commentary on the race issue I've ever seen anywhere.

Rest in peace, victims of the plane crash above Ukraine.

The bodies have been returned to the Netherlands for further identification, and today it was an official national mourning day. There was even a minute of silence to remember them, and we saw the planes with the bodies arriving on a field. The royal family and some other important people were on screen, and the press and relatives of the victims were kept out of sight, for their own privacy. During the one minute of silence you could hear this weird noise, which was apparently the relatives crying. It was truly heartbreaking.

I hate how the rebels have sabotaged everything in order to make it harder to identify the victims and to prove they did it. They've replaced parts of the plane with parts from other planes, took belongings from the victims, and turned off the cooler of the place in which the remains of the victims were placed. And those were just a few things. It's absolutely devastating.

Today I found out there were actually more people from my hometown that were in the plane. A guy I knew lost his sister, and two people who just got married died. They had been married for one day and had also moved into their new house the day before. Also, whole families that died. It's so sad that this happened. 

Something needs to be done, because I don't think anyone's waiting for a WWIII.

RIP to the plane crash victims. This story has been a disaster from beginning to end. They will all be missed. apple01&heart

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.
