R.I.P. Actor Robert Prosky

Robert Prosky: actor

Robert Prosky was probably best known for his anchoring role in Hill Street Blues, the New York police drama. Despite appearing in nearly 40 films, numerous television series and more than 200 stage plays on Broadway and in Washington, he was one of those actors whose face is much better known than his name.

He was the craggy but loveable police sergeant in Hill Street Blues; the television station owner in Mrs Doubtfire (1993) and the corrupt judge in The Natural (1984). He appeared as a priest on trial for murder in The Practice, a TV legal drama; the experienced executive who is sacked in Broadcast News (1987); and a death-row inmate for Sean Penn in Dead Man Walking (1995). In all, he appeared in more than 250 plays, films and TV shows.

You might not know how good an actor this guy is, if all you’ve seen of him is in Hill Street Blues.

Here is the most chilling portrayal you’ll ever see, from the classic movie Thief:

Sci-fi ‘creator’ Ackerman dies

He said the term “sci-fi” came to him in 1954 when he was listening to a car radio and heard an announcer mention the word “hi-fi.”

“My dear wife said, ‘Forget it, Forry, it will never catch on,”‘ he said.

He was never a big part of my own life. I preferred the irregularly-published Castle of Frankenstein to Famous Monsters of Filmland. But he had the foresight to amass a huge collection. Too bad all the people who grew rich from his influence never appreciated that and helped to preserve it.

BBC News Scares The Hell Out Of Everyone

BBC News via Twitter reported six gunmen killed at India’s Delhi airport.

Above is a screensnap of the story the tweet linked to.

I immediately got on TweetGrid and from there followed a link to live NDTV video.

BBC News took a while to withdraw the report.

For a while there, everyone was scared shitless.

How the Lives of 10 Lottery Millionaries went Disasterously Wrong

Every week, millions of people buy lottery tickets in the hope that this week, finally, it will be their turn to win big. But is being a lottery millionaire all it’s made out to be? Not according to this sorry bunch…

Who wants to be a millionaire? Most people, surely (except billionaires or course). But sadly, winning a truck-load of money on the lottery, any lottery, comes with a heap of baggage.

Day dreams of a millionaire lifestyle seem to have a habit of turning sour faster than a sub-prime mortgage – isolation, paranoia, drugs, crime, poverty and prison await those who fail to adjust, as this top ten of ‘Lottery Losers’ shows:

And then there’s a list of ten miserable winners — who wound up as losers.
