    Of all of the Kroft shows, H.R. Pufnstuf was my favorite (though Land of the Lost was very close - I thought Holly was cute ).

    Frances Sternhagen, probably best known as Cliff Clavin's mother on Cheers, has died.

    Marty and his brother Sid (who I think is still with us) brought---though most would say foisted---one of their all time greatest failures, Pink Lady & Jeff on the American populace back in 1980. It was a short lived, six episode comedy-variety show starring Pink Lady, an uber-popular Japanese song and dance duo and then (and now) unknown stand-up comic Jeff Altman. The show was an absolute train wreck as the Ladies barely spoke passable English while Altman was about as funny as a crutch along with a kooky list of guest stars like Larry Hagman, Sid Caesar, Jerry Lewis, Hugh Hefner, Sherman Hemsley, Bert Parks and Red Buttons. TV historians said PL&J was so bad, it killed the long running comedy-variety show format dead. If you want to learn more about PL&J, check this out:

    Yeah, I remember that and it was really bad, but I do recall thinking the girls were nice to look at. As for Jeff Altman, I actually thought he was fine as a standup, but he was as funny as cancer on that show. As for variety shows, it didn't kill them off (multiple TV sets in the house did that), but Pink Lady and Jeff expedited the process.

    Shane MacGowan died aged 65, lead singer of the Pogues.

    He was a good one, but he led a life where 65 is a surprising age to have reached. RIP.

    Nobody would line up to insure his life. (Really enjoyed his music)

    My brother and I have had this discussion about how "Musician..." years can be like "Dog..." years.

    Lemmy being an obvious instance. That guy making it to seventy was practically a miracle.

    Shane is the same sort of a thing. Hopefully, the guy had some time just being able to put it into neutral and coast at some short stretch during these last few years.

    Quite right on both counts! Not to toot my horn, but the info I provided came from my Pink Lady website:

    Oh, and here's an interview with Mr. Evanier about the show:

    RIP to Sandra Day O'Connor at 93. I actually thought she was already dead.

    RIP Sandra Day. A true depiction of what a Supreme Court justice should be.
    Every day is a gift, not a given right.
