    John Hughes is dead from a heart attack at age 59. He made some great films during his peak and some favourites from my youth including 'The Breakfast Club', 'Weird Science', 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off', 'Sixteen Candles', 'Pretty in Pink', 'Uncle Buck' and 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'.

    He wrote and directed some real 1980's comedy classics, and I always thought his bratpack film 'The Breakfast Club' was his best work and pretty sure most people would agree with that.

    RIP John Hughes, and thanks for the memories!

    He lived a full term by any measure but it's still sad to see yet another such talent and influence on modern music pass away.

    RIP

    Wow that is a biggie. I have mixed views about the Kennedy clan. J.F.K signed the death warrants of a million SE Asians yet is perversly remembered as a man of peace and his father Joseph was deeply sympathetic to Hitler's Final Solution.

    Well, one is not responsible for one's brother or father. However, I remember Chapaquitic. There was no excuse for that. I went to see Chapaquitic on Martha's Vineyard. Really eerie.

    He didn't call the police until hours later. If he had been a black man he would have caught a 1st degree murder charge. It sure hepls to be the scion of the most influential family in America.

    It happened in 1969 if you think the filth treated black people fairly then you are living in a dream world. A white bank manager would have got a manslaughter beef and a black would have caught a capital murder charge. The supreme court even recognises the inherent insitutional racism that existed in the American law enforcement and legal system at that time.
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    For all the Aussies out there.

    Actor Ray Barrett dies in hospital




    Veteran Australian actor Ray Barrett has died aged 82 in a Queensland hospital on Tuesday.
    Sep 09, 2009

    Award-winning Australian actor Ray Barrett, known for portraying gruff but loveable characters in a string of Australian films, has died in a Queensland hospital after suffering a fall at home.
    The veteran stage and screen actor died at the Gold Coast Hospital on Tuesday morning.
    ABC Radio says the 82-year-old died from a brain haemorrhage.
    The Brisbane born actor suffered from chronic low-blood pressure which led to several recent falls, including one on Tuesday morning.
    Barrett was a star of the long-running British series The Troubleshooters in the 1960s.
    He was one of the popular leading men on British television during the 1960s, which included an appearance in the Doctor Who serial The Rescue in 1965.
    To many he is most famous as a voice artist on several of Gerry Anderson's puppet sagas, most notably as the voice of an ex-astronaut in the popular Thunderbirds series.
    As a boy, Barrett was fascinated by radio and aged 12 he won a radio talent competition.
    He began his career in the record library of the same radio station that held the contest and at 16 landed a daily show host role before pursuing an acting career.
    He had also appeared alongside fellow acting icons John Hargreaves and Graham Kennedy in the screen adaptation of David Williamson's play Don's Party and won an AFI Award for best actor for his role in director Fred Schepisi's The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith.
    Barrett was better known in recent years for a string of television appearances in series, including Something in the Air, All Saints and White Collar Blue.
    His last film appearance was in the Baz Luhrmann epic Australia.

    and another one

    Mike, the older half of television's legendary Leyland Brothers , who brought every corner of Australia into the lounge room, has died.
    The family announced that 68-year-old Mike passed away on Monday morning following complications from Parkinson's disease.
    Mike and Mal, explorers and documentary film-makers, were the creators of the long-running television show Ask The Leyland Brothers .
    At its peak, the weekly show, which ran from 1976 to 1984, was watched by more than 2.5 million people.
    Shot on Super8, it featured the brothers in unusual or far-flung places around the vast Australian continent which viewers had asked them to visit.
    The brothers were awarded the MBE in 1980 for services to the film industry.

    as much as they were a bit of tossers, thanks Mike RIP

    Keith Floyd left life in the style in which he had lived it with a glass of wine in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
    Despite heart problems and a series of operations for bowel cancer, his last meal was a three-course gourmet feast eaten at the restaurant of a fellow celebrity chef, Mark Hix, at Lyme Regis, Dorset. Lunch was shared with his close friend of 40 years, Celia Martin, and began with a Hix Fix cocktail a morello cherry soaked in Somerset apple eau de vie topped up with champagne on the sun terrace.
    He followed this up with a glass of white burgundy before moving indoors to the best table in the house, where he enjoyed a plate of oysters and potted Morecambe Bay shrimps.
    The pair shared a bottle of Ctes du Rhone red with their main course. Floyd ordered grouse, but the kitchen slipped up and sent him red-legged partridge and bread sauce by mistake. Floyd laughed it off and tucked into the substitute dish with enthusiam.
    I asked him if he wanted another glass of wine, and he said he would but he mustnt because hed been to the doctor that morning and the doctor told him hed got to lay off the booze, said Jonathan Jeffrey, the chef in charge of the restaurant. He was in a good mood and chatting to other diners. He was out with his best friend having lunch.
    The meal at the Hix Oyster and Fish House finished with apple pie and perry jelly, and several cigarettes. Floyd picked up the 120 bill.

    somebody removed my post about Patrick Swaze

    maybe I spelt his name wrong

    anyway, Dave got it right but it was not too difficult, as he had his illness for some time

    Keith Floyd was a great entertainer, I enjoyed his programmes
