    Two recent celebrity deaths might have gone by unnoticed.

    Richard Anderson, best known as Oscar Goldman on The Six Million Dollar Man. I met him in person when he made a corporate video for the company I worked for. He was very focused and professional and intent on conveying the image the client was looking for.

    Harry Dean Stanton. Whether or not you recognize the name, you've seen him. Probably many times. His acting résumé is crazy long. The Green Mile, Alien, the recent Twin Peaks reboot.

    Oh man, I had an Oscar Goldman action figure along with a Steve Austin action figure when I was a kid. RIP, Richard. (I already knew about Harry Dean Stanton. Such a loss.)

    Man, both of them were all over the big and small screens. They probably had at least a bit part in every single drama or action TV show in the 70s and 80s.....even if it was "bad guy number 3" in a random A Team episode.

    HDS was great in Big Love, a show I liked a lot before Bill Paxton died.

    I have no idea who either of these people are. It's funny how fame is like a tornado. Some people make a huge impact on the lives of others and the guy right next door to you has zero knowledge of this person's existence.

    Well, no.

    I really meant to say the show finished shortly before he died.

    Ah, got it. Yeah, it was a cool series.
    I remember as I watched it wondering why that angle with Carl wasn't played out more. Then I realized why at the end.
    I'm not saying I knew how it was going to end, but I wondered if it would come to something like that at some point with that guy Carl.

    Is this thread for those not worthy enough for their own individual RIP thread?

    I think that was about taking the easy way out so they could end the show quickly. I don't think they did it justice, or that the ending was initially planned that way.

    BTW - Genifer Goodwin was so cute - I had a crush on her.

    If that's how it gets used. Or if it's a bad idea the thread will die on its own. Maybe then I'll start an RIP thread for this thread. :eyebrow:

    He died? How did I miss that? I was a huge Six Million Dollar Man fan when I was a kid. Bummer.


    Wait, Bill Paxton died? How did I miss that?!?!

    RIP Robert “Bob” Auld.

    Bob Auld's Obituary on Eugene Register-Guard

    9FD990F3-F5F0-4A13-942E-3229C2AEB6A2.jpeg

    He was a regular at Jackalope Lounge in Eugene. Nice guy, very gregarious, loved to talk sports. In warm weather he enjoyed sitting at an outside table with his glass of Cabernet and chatting with whoever happened to sit down, young or old. Bob & I talked many times. He loved that crazy Jackalope Lounge as much as I do for its friendly customers and staff.

    Just some random guy at a bar but his death saddens me and many others. He was only one year older than me. Last time I saw him I remember thinking he didn’t look good at all. :(

    Keep living every day, until you can’t.
