Although this was only one of many shows Rik graced, it was one of my all time favorite comedies. Rik Mayall as Rik and Ade Edmondson as Vyvyan the violent punker were over the top.
and following in that same vein:
"There were times when Rik and I were writing and we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard."
So sad to hear that Rik Mayall died yesterday morning.
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the world's finest comedians. To witness him on screen or on stage at full throttle was truly something special. "Fireball creativity" is absolutely right.
Commenting after his accident which left him in a coma for five days -
"I beat Jesus Christ," he said. "He was dead for three days at Easter. When I crashed it was the day before Good Friday, Crap Thursday, and I was technically dead until Easter Monday - that's five days ... beat him 5-3."
The world burns less brightly today.
In memory of Maya Angelou, thank you, you will be at the top of my summer reading list. Peace to all.
but happy that you get some time together now.
Today I found out my long time friend from birth, my brother Jimmy is defiantly leaving us but God has given him sometime to be with the ones he loves. Today he was awake, ornery, and sweet as ever.IDK how he does it but his nurse, the female Chaplin, all hot! LOL!! We had lunch together and when I was leaving he got me to sneak a cig to him. Told him "as long as you don't lite it." He whispered "Hey Tam! I'm going to smoke it when I go outside soon." Still apart of me that would not doubt it. Then I looked at his last days with the TV turned on to channel he didn't prob. pic and ran out and bought one of the last of 2 CD players at Fred Meyers with big headphones so they won't slip off his head. NOW they have him partially restraint Silly. Got him the new Willie, Bonnie Rait, and the lost Cash tapes. Also thru in blues. Ozzy!. and of coarse some GD. (~);-) I would always play them when he wasn't looking and he would always say "Hey! Who is this? These guys are good!".Just going to enjoy him while I can. All his nieces who I baby sat came and flew up to his sisters house to be closer to him so I will get to see them again. Thanx all for the support! I am glad to say I made it thru with no cops called. No harm to myself or others. Well a little ding on my trunk but Hey!, something had to give!
Anyone remember Cactus. He played guitar and mandolin . He toured in the 90s and was young, maybe 18 in '90 he is not in Phish or Granola Funk(lots of people direct me that way) ...

May we find comfort in song as you soar onward. Furthur." NPA. (~);-)
He wrote some great ones, and was by all accounts a great guy. I think I like this best of all his songs.
