James Caan. L.Q. Jones. Tony Sirico. Lenny von Dohlen. Gregory Itzin. Larry Storch. We lost a lot of talented performers this week. To all of them, I say thank you for the performances and thank you for the memories. As long as people watch movies, their names and their talent will never be forgotten.
This week has been hot. Yesterday, it was 106 degrees at its hottest. Today, the high was 101. My hope i that eventually, the temperature will only get up to 99 and we’ll get some relief. Having grown up in the Southwest, I’m used to hot summers but that doesn’t make them any more fun.
Speaking of summer, my summer job of recapping Big Brother for the Big Brother Blog began this week. It’s always difficult to keep up with everything this time of year but I still love it.
