While watching a local news broadcast on Monday morning I learned that on Sunday, 65 year old Richard Dermo was killed when his home was destroyed by fire. I did not know Mr. Dermo but was struck by tearful comments made by his daughter. She was holding the only remnants of her father's belongings - his Army dogtags, a photo of his brother and his sister's wedding album. The lump in my throat came when she mentioned that his entire Beatles collection was lost in the fire, he absolutely loved the Beatles and that he talked about them and the Doors all the time. According to her, his love of the Beatles was something that they had in common and it always connected them. All the while, an instrumental version of 'Let It Be' was playing softly in the background. Other newscasts showed interviews of neighbors and acquaintances. To a person, they all mentioned his love of the Beatles.

Please join me in honoring our fellow Beatles Fan. RIP Mr. Dermo.

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 James Bond intro. Being a Scot it does sound out of place at the beginning of the song but its still a very cool piece of music best played at full volume. Sad to hear of Ken's passing, i've always liked his orchestral pieces and more than the ones on AHDN.

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.

I was hoping to find an extended version of the James Bondian theme to post here - it's around the 10-minute mark in the film. But of course apple01's taken down the existing uploads on YouTube.

I just heard that the director from my old school died... He wasn't even that old. He was always very nice. In the mornings he would stand at the entrance of the school and greet us, then at the end of the schoolday he would do the same thing again.

It is sad, but he had been sick for a long time, maybe it's better...

I'm glad he is a positive memory for you. If you have online condolences guestbooks in your country, see if there is a guestbook for him and leave a note there for his family. I'm sure they would appreciate it.

On the 19th, James Garner passed away aged 86 years. Many remember him from The Rockford Files. But in our house, he will be remembered as the Sheriff and the Gunfighter from the Support Your Local ______ movies. Thanks for the laughs, James.

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.

It is terrible what happened. Luckily I didn't know anyone personally who has died. But one of my dad's old coleagues did die.

It is terrible to see those pro-russian seperatists standing admidst the rubble, touching all those victims' property. Also, the people from the village stealing the things. I saw a video where the villagers were playing cards, and it was a Malaysian airlines pack of cards. Do they have no respect at all?

RIP.

I don't know how I missed this, but last night my wife told me that Eli Wallach passed away last month at the age of 98. Among his many roles, he co-starred in one of my all-time favorite films, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. With Lee Van Cleef (The Bad) having passed away in 1989 and now Wallach (The Ugly), that leaves only Clint Eastwood (The Good).

Looks like Billy Joel had it wrong.

RIP, Eli. heart
