Adam West, who played Batman in the 1966 TV series. His straight-faced, straight-laced portrayal was hysterically funny.

One thing that I remember: Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) was escorting a date to her apartment. She said, "Want to come in for some milk and cookies?" Wayne replied, "Did you say milk and cookies?" And then, in an aside to the audience, he said, "Man does not live by crime-fighting alone."

Great character actor Martin Landau. I first saw him in Mission Impossible in the 60s. He was fantastic as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood.

Great voice actress, June Foray. The world is a sadder place without Rocky and Natasha. Imagine what the producers would have done with the current political mess.

She certainly was talented, and the fact that she did Rocky and Natasha's vastly different voices underscores it!

Jeanne Moreau, Femme Fatale of French New Wave, Is Dead at 89

For those of us who were adolescents when she appeared on the scene in the nouvelle vague, enough said.

This article is a nice little trip down Memory Lane.

Haruo Nakajima, the First Actor to Play Godzilla, Dies at 88 I remember the original movie from 1954 (I was 9 years old and loved it). Raymond Burr was in the movie as well. As I recall, the dubbed English dialogue was rather hilarious. One line (if memory serves): "Tokyo has been totarry obriterated."

Shelley Berman, Stand-Up Comic Who Skewered Modern Life, Dies at 92

I certainly remember this bit (and many other bits) from his stand-up (sit-down) shtick:
"If you’ve never met a student from the University of Chicago, I’ll describe him to you. If you give him a glass of water, he says: 'This is a glass of water. But is it a glass of water? And if it is a glass of water, why is it a glass of water?' And eventually he dies of thirst."

Hugh Hefner, Who Built Playboy Empire and Embodied It, Dies at 91 Paul Anka may have written "My Way" for Frank Sinatra, but it just as easily could have been written for Hef. Hef truly did his way. RIP, Hef.

Y.A. Tittle I never saw him in person, but I watched him on television when he played QB for the New York Giants. He and Del Shofner made a great pass-catching combination. RIP, YA.

Dad took me to a 49ers/Colts game when I was 12. It wasn't much fun, as the Colts kicked our butts. But I did get to see Y.A and Johnny Unitas. (I had to look all this up, as I don't remember the game making all that much of an impression on me – I liked the horseshoe on the side of Baltimore's helmets. I have always preferred watching sports on television.)
