    Dudley Moore went first. Then Milton Berle passed next. Now, director Billy Wilder has died.

    Everyone was wondering who the third celeb was gonna be, there you have it.

    Randy Castillo won't count, like I said in an earlier post. He's not part of Hollywood's "elite".
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    I found this comment especially disturbing. Maybe I'm taking it too literal.

    I can't say I was really a Randy Castillo fan, but at least I know what bands he was in. What the fuck has Billy Wilder done?
    Eat Us And Smile

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal

    He was a major director from the 40's thru the mid to late 60's.

    He directed films like "Some Like It Hot", "The Apartment", and "The Seven Year Itch".

    I never heard of Billy Wilder. Still sucks for his family nevertheless.

    It pains me to see so many people that don't know who Billy Wilder is. His influence on the entertainment industry was greater than any of the others that have passed in recent days.

    Even if you are not an old movie buff, it is worth some time to rent some films that he has directed. I guarantee you that you will enjoy them. Some of my favorites:
    DOUBLE INDEMNITY, SUNSET BOULEVARD, STALAG 17, THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH, THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS, SOME LIKE IT HOT, THE APARTMENT. There are many more.

    I know who Wilder is, but the whole notion of celeb's dying in threes is bullshit, and it conditions some to overlook the contributions of various artists who've passed away.

    All I know is that it's getting crowded down here, and now with Randy Castillo pounding away along with Bonham and Moon, the echo is loud enough to make my horns vibrate!!

    Send me some fucking construction workers so I can expand this place and NOT any more damned show biz types!!
