RIP Grumpy Cat.

And especially Herman Wouk: RIP. The Caine Mutiny and The Winds of War are two of my favorite books.

Leon Redbone! Oh no, truly one of my all-time favorites. I do his song "Mississippi Delta Blues" occasionally:



I also owe him my discovery of another personal favorite: Tom Waits. I went to see Leon Redbone in concert in Seattle many years ago, and his opening act was some guy named Tom Waits I'd never heard of. Redbone was great, and Waits was great too. I started buying Tom Waits records after that (I had already been buying Leon Redbone records.) Now Tom Waits is one of my favorites too, just like Leon Redbone.

RIP Leon Redbone.

RIP Herman Wouk.

Have I mentioned before that I'm an "engineer", which means that I have the social skills of a 3-day-old dead trout? Herman Wouk is one of the "Great Ones" who could turn tales into a story. He had the "gift".

Klaus von Bulow age 92. Convicted of attempted murder of his wife. Conviction reversed and found not guilty in the retrial (the movie Reversal of Fortune tells that story). Wealthy socialite type guy.

I don't remember if he died this year or last year, but what about Jim Neidhart? His brother was Bret hart. I think they were a tag team back in the Hulk Hogan era, or Sting era?

I remember it on eyewitness news almost nightly. Sunny and Klaus were Long Island “socialites”, whatever that means.

Malcolm Rebennack, aka Dr. John has passed at 77. RIP. I don't know a lot of his work, but what I know I have always liked. A New Orleans legend for sure.

I'm sorry House, but I don't know either. I used to watch a little "professional wrestling" occasionally, but never cared enough about it to know anything about the wrestlers themselves.

Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart, member of Hart Foundation, dies at 63
Tim Fiovanti ESPN.com Aug 13, 2018


Professional wrestler Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, part of the legendary Hart family wrestling dynasty, has died at the age of 63.

The Pasco Sheriff's Office said Neidhart fell at home, hit his head and "succumbed to his injury'' on Monday in Wesley Chapel, Florida. No foul play was suspected.

A two-time WWF tag team champion as part of the Hart Foundation with real-life brother-in-law Bret Hart, Neidhart was among the most recognizable characters in the WWF explosion of the late 1980s and early '90s, with his signature goatee and the Hart Foundation's pink and black wrestling gear.

ESPN Link

If he was from Pasco county FL I likely met him back in the pre-WWF days. Before the "WWF Explosion" and BEFORE Orlando FL became a "Big City" rather than a "small southern town" (Which started about '83 or so) (If you're familiar with the area, I can remember when what is now "International Drive" was an almost-driveable dirt/sand trail in the middle of orange groves. I got my car stuck in the sand once, and AAA said "we don't go off-road".)

Anyway, there was this place in Orlando called the "Eddie Graham Sports Arena" started by the namesake sport promoter who was also a former wrestler. It was a "thing" for a while, until financial difficulties led to Eddie Graham's suicide in '85. Sucks that Eddie Graham couldn't make it another couple of years to see the WWF/WWE explosion. I wasn't particularly a fan, but my best friend at the time was... Don Breslin, cousin of NYC sportswriter Jimmy Breslin (Small world, eh?). Free tickets. Got to meet any number of wrestlers, because any wrestler of renown from any surrounding county came there.

Ten Bell salute, archive and tribute to dead wrestlers: Eddie Graham, Dead at 55 after committing suicide 1930-1985 (Age 55)

RIP Eddie Graham 1985
RIP Don Breslin 2008
RIP Kelly Breslin 2009 (Jimmy's daughter)
RIP Jimmy Breslin 2017
RIP Jim Neidhart 2018
