    I turn 48 in a little more than a month and am reminded too frequently about mortality. I can't say that any of those four meant much to me, but they were fellow humans and had families, friends and fans and I feel sorry for them. At least three of them were cultural icons for people of my age.

    This death thing is becoming too familiar - I looked in the paper this morning to read the obit of someone who used to be on a nonprofit board with me and, next to hers was the obit of someone I used to work with. It really sucks. She was a year younger than me and he was only 61. They did a lot of good for the world but, like most people, didn't seek or get wealth & fame.

    I loved pitchmen. It's real shame to have to see it end now, so early.

    RIP Billy

    Good health to everyone.

    Billy Mays... now there's someone I can get emotional over. He was definitely a memorable figure in my generation.

    I hope they have dirty bathrooms in heaven, so Billy can sell cleaning products for them.

    Billy Mays was on tv just this morning selling a double blade saw thing. It was obviously taped earlier. He was annoying as all get out, but it won't be the same not seeing him do his pitches while channel surfing.

    Here's a link to a youtube playlist of 11 episodes of Pitchmen. It gives you a different view of those annoying infomercials.

    The dual saw story is episode 2 of that show.

    A friend of mine made a hilarious "trailer" for a movie that never existed called "VINCE: an offer you can't refuse" and posted it on youtube- look for that if you want to see a really weird take on hollywood crossed with the Pitchmen

    Billy NO!!!

    RIP, may your afterlife have a bright lustre
