The Great Beyond

Buck Henry (1930 – 2020)

Wrote The Graduate, and wrote for Get Smart. Not much else to say:

Tim Conway (1933 – 2019)

No one could play the straight man when he was in gear …

Katherine Helmond (1929-2019)

Loved her in Soap, loved her in Brazil, and what an interesting life.

Ken Berry (1933-2018)

A fixture of my childhood … 


George HW Bush (1924-2018)

Gave us W (and thus hundreds of thousands dead), Dan Quayle, and Clarence Thomas, among other things. His other children, and now his grandchildren, continue to damage the nation. Fuck off, sweet prince.

Stan Lee, 1922-2018

Mavericky McCain was a complicated dude. I’ll never forgive him for uncorking the genie of Talibunny and the Teabaggers, nor for him not doing more to stand up to Twitler. But dude had his moments.
