OT: Dick Van Dyke, RIP (an' Prescience)
Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:11am

Just heard about of my all-time faves (and Underrated and Underused, imho --- his talents were many, like quite a few of his generation, raised by a Studio System that both Trained and Encouraged bein' the BEST in All the Vagaries of Entertainment: Dance, Song, Acting - both Comedic and Dramatic - EVERYthing....Christopher Walken, which most people don't know, caught the tail-end of this, and was trained in all those Arts --- Dick excelled at them ALL...check out some of his rare Dramatic work!!)...

I'd gotten his phone number a month or two back, and had been looking forward to calling him -- but decided to wait until after the Holidaze, so as not to interrupt family and friends and social connections that are so prevalent this time of year...

And this is only the latest of many, many aging folks I've had at or near the Top of my Call List, that soon after I bump them up there, go and pass's really kinda scary. ;P

RIP, sir --- you and your work will not be forgotten!
