Dead Silence

Wow. I totally spaced that a new month had started. I cannot believe that I missed the Aug update for the dead celebrity watch. I guess that lack of sleep really did get to me. I need to just put a reminder on my phone or something. Well, we all know that some famous folks died last month so let’s get straight to it shall we. By the way, I added links to either Wikipedia or IMDB so you can see what the people are famous for if you don’t know or my short description isn’t enough.

Bob Probert – 45 – Hockey Player – July 5th

Simion Stanciu – 60 – Romanian Pan Flautist – July 6th

Vonetta McGee – 65 – Actress – July 9th

Robert Spillane – 45 – Actor and son of Mickey Spillane – July 10th

Louis Keller – 87 – Inventor of the Bobcat – July 11th

George Steinbrenner – 80 – Owner of the Yankees – July 13th

Frances Kuyper – 92 – Founded world’s first Cake Museum – July 15th

James Gammon – 70 – The manager in Major League – July 16th

Shirley Silvey – 82 – Animator for Rocky & Bullwinkle, George of the Jungle – July 17th

David Warren – 85 – Inventor of the Flight Data Recorder – July 19th

Dorothy Stowe – 89 – Co-founder of Greenpeace – July 23rd

Maury Chaykin – 61 – Actor in Lots of different things – July 27th

Bob Fenimore – 84 – Chicago Bear – July 28th

John Aylesworth – 80 – Co-Creator of Hee Haw – July 28th

Lorene Yarnell – 62 – Mime (Shields and Yarnell) Dot Matrix in Spaceballs – July 29th

Dan Resin – 79 – Dr. Beeper in Caddyshack and Tidy Bowl Man – July 31st

Mitch Miller – 99 – Sing Along With Mitch – July 31st

A few shockers in there for me I must admit. I also didn’t realize that the Tidy Bowl man and the Dr. were one in the same. I should have. I am ashamed of myself. It is a sad sad day when people die, but at least it gives me something to write about.

Until next time remember … “We’re outta towels, and I’m too old to go diving into lockers.”

I have been blogging on for a little over a year now. I have had some funny blogs, some unfunny blogs, some good pictures, no pictures and a variety of other things in my posts. No matter what I post though, I have yet to be featured on the “Freshly Pressed” section of the home page.

Obligatory Image Insertion

For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is a section where 10 blogs are posted on the home page as featured blogs. I have clicked through a number of these and sometimes I just think to myself “really?!?!” I have had PLENTY of blogs that I think were far more amusing that the ones they have featured there. I know that they are randomly chosen, and they even had a post about how to get chosen. It seems to me I have done most of the things that it takes to get chosen to be freshly pressed.

I will admit that incoherent ramblings aren’t always the things that masses of people want to read but still, I would like the shot. I would like the personal satisfaction to know that I was good enough to be one of the chosen few. One of the elite to have their blog opened up to possibly hundreds of hits in one or two days. I want my 15 minutes of blogging fame.

With that said, I am not complaining about the selection process really. I don’t want the committee to think that I am writing this just to get chosen … oh wait, I am doing that. Hmmm. That probably will keep me from getting chosen. Come to think of it, my spelling is pretty bad at times, my grammar is nowhere close to being copywriter quality. I don’t have very many interesting original images. My headlines are often times lacking and most times my content isn’t all THAT interesting is it? I am starting to see now, why I am not chosen.

Oh well, I guess I should just be happy to have the readers that I DO have. I love my readers and the comments that they leave are many times much better than my actual blog post and keep me and my wife laughing for hours. Well, ok it is usually my wife laughing at me, but still.

Well, I am hoping that the powers that be will someday find one of my blogs interesting enough to feature me on the home page. Until then, I will continue to let the voices tell me what to write and hopefully entertain all of you.

Hey look at me! I posted three days in a row! I hope I can keep it up but made the list of things that need to be done before the baby comes and … YIKES! I am going to be one busy soon to be daddy the next couple of months.

Well, I am off to come up with a hundred or so tags to let me be found. Until next time, even if I am never featured, remember … “when I die, on my deathbed, I will receive total consciousness. So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.”
