Dave Prowse, Actor Who Played Darth Vader, Dies at 85

[Image: 1bd1de5e-b08b-45c1-927a-14985fc2162b.jpg]

The real voice of Darth Vader...listen to what he could have sounded like had they kept Dave Prowse's voice instead of dubbing in James Earl Jones:




Interestingly, Prowse also auditioned for Chewbacca. He chose to play Vader instead because he felt "people remember the bad guys."

Retired Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh Dead at 46

[Image: a727db91-0733-41b4-8030-e34a4925bfe0.jpg]

A house fire but MSM and left might well say it was caused by Covidbug to gin up the numbers and make themselves happy. Hsieh lived in a trailer park in downtown Las Vegas where his company was located and where he regularly invested in its revitalization. A true entrepreneurial American success story. What a shame he died after previously selling his company for $1.2 billion and later stepping down as CEO in this past August.

Only two black country artists of the 1970s to ever won any major country music awards in the 1970s. Charley Pride and The Pointer Sisters. Bonnie Pointer lost her life earlier this year as well.

You wonder why The Pointer Sisters? in 1973 when they were 4 sisters? The Pointer Sisters hit #37 with their cross over hir Fairytale. They won a Grammy for country vocal group and Bonnie won a Grammy for songwriter for the song along with her sister Anita. She left the group, and The Pointer Sisters also got another one of their songs hit country when Conway Twitty covered their song, Slow Hand. Anita Pointer hit the top 10 in 1987 as a duet on the late Earl Thomas Conley's hit.

2) Hit .400 for a season in the minor leagues
3) Officiated a Rose Bowl and and AFC championship game
4) My sisters are more famous than I am

Who am I?

They say that all good things must end someday,
Autumn leaves must fall
But don't you know that it hurts me so
To say goodbye to you
Wish you didn't have to go
Oh no, no, no...

Listened to their albums a lot. Sorry to see him go.

Actually, I still have the "Yesterday's Gone" album on vinyl and it's a great album all around. I especially liked their version of the classic "Willow Weep For Me" as well as the title track.

I read that this morning on his Wiki page. What an amazing story.

“After graduating from high school, Greene enrolled at Auburn University and entered into the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) basic training for the United States National Guard at Fort McClellan in Anniston, Alabama.[2] He attempted to walk-on to the Auburn Tigers in college football as a punter in 1980. He tried out again in 1983, and made the team.[4] In 1984 he won the Zeke Smith Award as Defensive Player of the Year. He had 69 career tackles as an outside linebacker and 11 sacks his senior year where he led the Southeastern Conference and won the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 1984.[5]

Greene earned a degree in criminal justice at Auburn. He completed ROTC while at Auburn and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Alabama Army National Guard. After playing his first year in the NFL, during the off season, he graduated from the RC-1-86 Armor Officer Basic Course at Fort Knox. During his military career, he earned the rank of captain and completed airborne training at Fort Benning to become a paratrooper.”

Phil Neikro, the famous knuckleballer, passes at 81. https://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/2020/12/27/phil-niekro-baseball-hall-fame-knuckleballer-dies-81/4053800001/

Was in the majors 24 years and pitched regularly until he was 48.

Not sure there has been anyone since he and his brother Joe who has mastered that pitch.
