Who Cares??!!

Icky man.
Dead.
Gone.
Why do we have to keep hearing about him?
I'd rather watch my DVR recordings of Jane Austen stuff. Hmm, yum.
And tonight I'm watching

"Walk Hard."
You come here for good taste, right?
Tasty.

Creepy looking and a nasty gun-happy man. I wouldn't say I was glad he was dead but I'm not particularly sorry either.

Paige said...

I love Jane Austen! Would that be the PBS Masterpiece Austen's? Sooo good.

Dagny said...

The worst was when I'd come home in my real partying days at 3 or so in the morning to be greeted by the infomercial touting creepy man reading the Bible. Oh, the nightmares!

Mary Coleman said...

Not going to do a Netflix retrospective on this guy.

Sophie said...

Jane Austen always makes my day...I'm an addict, I've seen the 5 hr version of Pride and Prejudice 6 times! My husband is even a fan now :D!

I had the exact same feeling when I heard the news. I was almost embarrassed that that was my reaction.

I thought that he died a long time ago -- and the best thing about the Ten Commandments was topless Yul and Anne Baxter in gold lame and blue eyeshadow saying "Moses, Moses, Moses." I liked everybody but him; ditto for Ben Hur.

McAuliflower said...

wanna go pry the gun out of his cold dead fingers... ?
heh

Patricia Scarpin said...

I can't forget the "from my cold dead hands" thing. Horrible.

Zoomie said...

Bad movies, bad politics. I won't miss him.

El said...

What's sad is that the Jane Austen series on PBS is over. Strange haughty tall dead guy? Not so much.

These comments are not the comments of good hearted people...for all of the "we're so kind and gentle" that I hear out of Dems, I would expect something better. (And I'm not a Republican either. Yuck)

I suppose you wouldn't have wanted to hear something similar from people about your (was it) nephew? He certainly had a gun in his hands and chose to have it there.

Let's have some respect for the deceased. Unless someone is a pedophile or murderer, I think a modicum of respect is in order? That should be true, whether soldier or actor or dogcatcher.

OK. I've un-fed your feed, so you'll have to hear no more from me.

(PS. I was a Marine, so I highly respect your nephew and his sacrifice. So don't go there)

kudzu said...

The last comment was thought provoking. I detested what Heston stood for and ranted about. His long descent through Alzheimer's is not something I would wish even on him. It's ironic that he had to die with no recollection of his infamous past -- or his famous movies.

We should try to keep in prospective the deaths as well as the lives of all humans.

kudzu said...

PS And I should preview my comments. Of course it's perspective, not prospective. Blame it on only one coffee so far this morning!

Zoomie said...

Anonymous, cheap shot about their soldier-nephew. You as a former Marine should know there's a big difference between honorably serving one's country and supporting the kind of mass murder we have going on in our cities today, thanks to lack of gun control.

Anonymous said...

Wait, are you telling me that if guns were outlawed crime would stop?

I mean, I agree that we need controls, but quite honestly, the dirtbag who broke into our neighbor's house and held him at gunpoint didn't BUY their weapon at the corner gunstore. They stole it.

Now in theory, it would be a perfect world if all the guns in the United States were rounded up and destroyed. But what makes you think previously-mentioned dirtbag is going to turn in his gun?

And do you REALLY want a world where only the 'government sponsored' militia/law enforcement has guns? Good heavens no!!!!

I do not live in a Utopia. You do not live in a Utopia. As much as we'd like to live in a "peace and love" sorta society, we're not in one. And unless we can remove EVERY SINGLE GUN from society, then we have done more harm than good.

Just my two cents.

Zoomie said...

Anonymous, I do think we could improve the loss of (mostly young)lives with even a modicum of gun control; otherwise I wouldn't support it. One has only to compare the death-by-gun rates in U.S. and Canadian cities to see that gun control would make a huge difference. Maybe we couldn't prevent all deaths but we could make a good start. If it was your kid who was killed, I think you'd feel differently. And I still think it was a cheap shot to bring up their nephew's death. Shame on you!

Anonymous said...

I stand corrected and offer my apology.

Semper Fi.
(pulling chocks and leaving)

Stacie said...

oh come on! Don't shoot me, but me and the kids (yeah, 5 and 3, probably inappropriate) love ape movies! Did you see the montage on either Daily Show or Colbert, can't remember, last night with the clips of him in various movies - shouting. Hilarious good stuff. I'm watching Atonement tonight, probably by myself... chick flick! I do come here for the good taste...

namastenancy said...

Interesting; all you have to say is that you didn't particularly like (all) his movies, and disagreed with his policy on guns and the trolls gather. But then, I do understand as my brother is a real NRA supporter and won't hear any arguments for any type of gun control.

kudzu said...

Trolls?

Mimi said...

Creepy personal life aside, he was awesome in Will Penny. We just watched it.

dancingmorganmouse said...

Anonymous ... what Zoomie said, and you can compare the Australain & UK gun death stats too - gun control may not stop all crime but it sure as hell prevents a lot of death!

cookiecrumb said...

Well, that was nutty! I never intended for such a bunch of digressions. My, how our psyches manifest themselves.
Thank you all for your honesty and good wishes.

Rev. Biggles said...

Soylent green is people !!! I never listened to anything he said, just watched movies. I enjoy the good and pass on the stuff I don't care for. Next !

Cytoworld said...

What a bunch of evil thinking people, a man owns a gun and proud of it is not evil, elated someone die of a dreaded disease, now who is the NASTY AND EVIL.

Guzzisto said...

Typical responses from a typical group of mushbrained liberal intolerant idiots. Nice job our so-called universities are doing in the brainwashing department. Don't you jackasses EVER have an original or individual thought?
It's also nice to see that you phony liberal crackpots rile against a man who believes in our Bill of Rights enough to make a personal stand and take the heat for it from a Hollywood run by intolerant commie bastards.
And you wonder why your party is in the shitter!

"Who Cares??!!" :

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

LMAO! Personally, I don't...
