R.I.P. Charlie Daniels July 6, 2020

An American Legend, Charlie Daniels, has died. This might be the last video he made.

 

 

Full Disclosure: It was my great pleasure to do the Lighting for him about 20 years ago in Las Vegas. He was very friendly to the crew. He would invite us all into his dressing room before each show to eat snacks, have drinks and hang out.

The world has lost a fine man.

Excellent remake of one of Lee Greenwood’s best songs, featuring the group “Home Free” and The Singing Sergeants.

I got chills.

Spudder the Cat R.I.P. January 7, 2019

A little over 12 years ago, back in November 2006 there was a feral cat that was hanging around Camp Geezer. She had been living on her own for at least a year but I wanted to give her a warm place to sleep that year since winter was coming.

I started leaving food out for her and talking nicely whenever I saw her.

One day she just walked over and plopped down on her back and looked up at me.

We were buddies from then on.

Michael was the person who suggested I call her Spudder.*

(*Pictures not centered in his honor)

Here’s one of the first posts about Spudder at IB. Couldn’t believe it got 50 comments.

Lipstick would always ask me about her whenever we would email so I started a goofy blog for Spudder, mostly to keep Lipstick updated.

Here’s a link in case you want to read some posts, just click on the Archive links on the left side to go to different months.

A few months after we got her, I took her to the vet to get spayed. They called back after they had shaved her belly and told me that she was already spayed. Apparently she was a pet that someone dumped in the field by my house.

Fast forward to now… She stopped eating on Thursday so we took her to the vet on Friday. The prognosis was that she had pneumonia and had a few days to live. We took her home to let her die in peace.

She would drink water but she didn’t eat anything for 4 days. We decided it was time.

I was bawling like a baby when we went to the vet but Mrs. Geezer took charge.

I’d like to imagine Spudder curled up on Lipstick’s lap with Michael standing there making a wisecrack.

This is a wonderful, short film about a 94 year-old guy in Idaho who has devoted 35 years of his life to saving Bluebirds.

I don’t think I can embed this excellent video so I’ll just put the link here.

May we, as Abraham Lincoln said at Gettysburg, “highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

So, there’s a show about a samurai who refused to kill a cat.

Here’s a couple still promo images.

Here he’s sneaking up on the cat and probably thinking, “This has got to be the shittiest contract I’ve ever gotten.”

But of course, they ended up the best of friends! Yay! Showing this pic to Japanese ladies makes them all turn fertile at once.

This is the trailer.

 

In one episode, the cat got fleas and needed a bath. The samurai sings a song. You’ll like this song.

The show is called ‘Neko Zamurai’ and the cat is a bigger star than any of us will ever be.

Thank you and have a delightful day.

I really like Remy, he has some very clever videos. Kind of like a Political Weird Al.
