So another monday....another work week huh?
Yeah I hear ya.
I figured I'd get this out of the way, even though I didn't want to start things off on a sad note, but I gotta' do this.
In case you didn't already know Rock Legend Lou Reed died at the ripe old(for his former lifestyle anyways) age of 71. He died from Liver transplant complications that he had gotten last year.
I won't pretend to say I know all there is to know about him and that he was a favorite of mine. He wasn't. But I admire the man's body of work, and the countless number of people and bands his music influenced over the years, such as David Bowie, Marc Bolan of T-Rex, and many, many more.
He first became famous/known for his stint in the 60's cult band The Velvet Underground. A band but together by famous artists Andy Warhol during that whole experimental period of the 60's.
He left the Underground in 1970 to pursue a solo career and never looked back.
He was undoubtedly a true legend and pioneer, and now joins his fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms in rock on a last walk on the wild side.
So when you'r watching the new Playstation commercial with his song "Perfect Day" playing throughout it, just take a quick second to look up and say thank you Lou. I think even he's appreciate it.
She also played the receptionist on The Bob Newhart Show, as well as various other roles in movies and television.
My mom always says death comes in 3's, so I wonder now who's next......
Alright people, this is the Halloween week, and I have just a skit that's definitely in tune with the holiday.
If you're at all familiar with the very good show on FX, AHS:American Horror Story, then you should kinda have a clue where the title of this one came from.
