Loving (and Hating) Steve Jobs

Loving (and Hating) Steve Jobs.  I saw this on one of my arches WP’s and had to repost even though I posted about Mr. Jobs passing. I saw 12 posts on there mostly 99% negative. I’m not a big apple fan mind you.

But the man and his mind created a hell of alot of items we used in everyday life in one form or another.  I don’t give a rat’s about politics, I find it more of a headache more than anything else, technology is one of my finer interests and I for one will miss this person for what he has contributed to the world and my condolences to his family and friends at his passing. It seems we have a number of people passing this week.

I will leave it at that and leave you with this food for thought…..


So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.


Daniel O’Bannon One the Better Screenwriters dies at age 63

Daniel O’bannon Screenwriter of Awesome died due to Crohn’s disease at age 63. He is survived by their son Adam. Truly a sad month for the world yet again another legend of Cinema History taken from us.

I remember watching dark star which I think was his first movie along john carpenter doing the directing. I and Gary a good friend to this day watched it at Mike’s or Rick’s house I can’t recall which house it was and we were amazed at the cool effects (at the time) and the story was not bad for that era.

Then came Heavy Metal and Aliens which further brought us to the edge where we fell into Rpg’ing and we have Mr. O’Bannon to thank for that. May he travel among the stars he so wrote about and sipping tea at Milly ways with Doug, Ford, and Bishop and Ripley. God Speed dear kind writer.

Soupy Sales a Legend in his own time Passed on Age 83

Milton Supman AKA Comical Legend Soupy Sales passed away at age 83. His comedical stunts and wit were obtained During World War II oddly enough. During his time in the U.S. Navy he entertained his shipmates using the ship’s PA system. After the war he decided to the airwaves as a DJ like Kasey Kasem. Using his material from his military duty he aquired and soared into Television History with The Soupy Sales show!

My dad and Grandfather grew up with Lunch with Soupy Sales which was live in 1953 and lasted till 1966 when I was born. Soupy was a Do it all type of person. Not only did he do his show but game shows, voice acting in cartoons in his life. It was also his wonderful sense of comedy and bringing laugther to us all thru television that endeared him to us all in heart as well as mind. We will miss you Soupy……
