    I made the mistake of listening to Farmer In The City while I was finishing up at work. I almost wept. It was beautiful under the night sky, but so damn sad.

    All of us Detroit and Cleveland (and Parma and Hamtramck) kids are mourning the death of The Ghoul (Ron Sweed), dead at 70.

    “He was the Hunter S. Thompson of trash,” said Jerry Vile, the Detroit artist, media maker and creator of The Dirty Show. “You didn’t have to be an adult to know he wasn’t playing by the rules. He was everybody’s introduction to anarchy. He influenced a lot of people. He was like the proto-punk. It was true revolution for the hell of it. Blowing up stuff with fireworks — we weren’t supposed to do that. But here he was, doing it on the TV.”

    Sweed like to show old horror films. Really old. Often really bad ones.

    "Those movies he shows have been around so long that anyone who hasn't seen them by the time they get passed on to The Ghoul's show must've had the TV set off for 10 years," one reader complained to Bettelou Peterson, the Free Press TV writer. The Ghoul, of course, mocked those films as part of his act.
    He was the greatest. RIP, Ghoul. We'll never forget you.

    RIP Shawn Smith, most famously of the band Brad. He also played a big part on "Black Love" by Afghan Whigs, 1 of my all time favorite records. He died on April 5 of diabetes complications at age 53. April 5 is getting weird for Seattle musicians. Kurt, Layne & now Shawn all died on that day. He will be missed.

    Mike McGrath, founder of the modular synth forum (and what eventually organically became an incredible resource for the modular community) Muff Wiggler has died.

    Oh, crap. I was just watching an interview with her a few days ago while looking forward to the next Annabelle film entry and was thinking how much she’d outlived Ed...

    It is with an extremely heavy heart that I post this update. She was just seven years old.

    Goodbye, sweet Tardar Sauce. You'll never know how useful you were to us humans. When we felt like saying "fuck off" to the entire world and we wanted to stay somewhat polite, we used your unique face to do it. But most of all, us cat lovers always thought you were adorable and we will miss you tremendously.

    Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge, darling girl!

    She was a recluse for decades, had such a rotten life, treated terribly by three of her four husbands, one of them embezzled all of her money. But when she finally came out of hiding in 2014, she looked great! (For 92) She made a surprise appearance at a fundraiser birthday celebration and people cried when they saw her. There are photos of her online from her 97th birthday, just weeks before she suddenly fell ill from the flu then pneumonia, and she had been in really good health, walked her dogs daily, etc. She was amazing, one of the greats.

    I saw Pillow Talk recently. It's aged horribly and doesn't hold up well in the Me Too era, but she did light up the screen.

    My favorite is this from “Calamity Jane.”

    So the story goes that he kills himself the night/morning before he's supposed to get on a plane for the first Joy Division tour in North America as put on by WaxTrax... annnnnnd last night I just watched the WaxTrax documentary.

    Of course I'm listening to Closer now. Almost be disrespectful not to.

    He isn’t famous, at least not for a fun reason, but this still sucks all the same.

    What a fucking bummer. I'm a fan of both of her parents.

    Me too. That's awful.

    Remember this from Angels With Dirty Faces? I remember them playing it on the talk shows back in the day, and talking about how excited he was about having her.
