Well Reid’s it seems as if you are the hall monitor when you feel like it. I was simply saying that it may be insensitive to just say “ screw him for making the choices he made”. Further more he had an enlarged heart which is its own medical condition aside from whatever else he may have been doing. Alcohol has killed far more people than any drug you can think of. That is not up for dispute or debate. I was simply just saying that we can say RIP to a man and not have to act like his life didn’t mean shit because of drugs he chose do. I would guess that no one on this thread including Mr. Steve A Jones wouldn’t have been so flippant about John Henry Bonhams passing. He did overdose on alcohol. Yes he choked on his own vomit. Asphyxiation is a terrible way to go. That’s the how my own brother passed. 
 

I am not disputing Steve’s contributions to this site, thread, and forum. I may not agree with everything he says, however I have read Steves posts more than anyone on this thread. His knowledge is incredible, his meme game is on point. 
 

As a person who has dealt with overdoses in their family I was simply just saying maybe let’s truly let him Rest In Peace. 
 

Now onto the thread highjack. BobDobbs Meme game is vicious, and his empathy, humor, and contributions are also very appreciated. 
 

Alright Hall Monitor back to the regularly scheduled thread. 
 

RIP Academy Awards.  

Perhaps you should have sent your reply to me as a private message, but since you didn’t, here’s my reply. Since no one else has really stepped up consistently to regularly post / contribute to honor lives of those that have passed day to day (objectively), I found this to be the best way to contribute in a positive manner on the least confrontational thread on the forum (until recently).  Like weather and sports scores, objective posting of information should also be captured in a similar manner with the daily obituaries as seen in newspapers.  When forum members go off topic; delving into their own personal anecdotes / conjecture, some then make light of the deceased, then it can open up a rabbit trail to subjective finger pointing and then ultimately verbal assaults towards other members (like most other threads).  Some (unfortunately) want & thrive on forum chaos. Those members need to just go. There shouldn’t be any place for that behavior especially on a thread dedicated to honoring the lives of those that recently passed away (regardless of the occupation, political party, lifestyle, choices, etc... )  Hope this helps ...

Estelle Harris, George Costanza's Mother on Seinfeld, Dead at 93

By Nick Caruso / April 2 2022, 7:39 PM PDT

 

Estelle Harris, best known for playing Estelle Costanza on Seinfeld, died of natural causes on Saturday at the age of 93, days shy of her 94th birthday.

 

“It is with the greatest remorse and sadness to announce that Estelle Harris has passed on this evening at 6:25 pm,” Harris’ son Glenn said in a statement to our sister site Deadline. “Her kindness, passion, sensitivity, humor, empathy and love were practically unrivaled, and she will be terribly missed by all those who knew her.”

Having entered the business later in life after raising children, Harris started her career in commercials. In 1992, she began her most famous role as George Costanza’s mom on the hit sitcom Seinfeld, first appearing in the Season 4 episode “The Contest” and recurring on the series through the end of its run. She appeared in a total of 27 episodes and became beloved for her character’s constant screaming at her family and hilariously overbearing nature.

 

 

Harris guest-starred on shows like Mad About You, Law & Order, Married… With Children, Living Single and Moesha, but also held other recurring roles throughout her career. She played Easy Mary on Night Court, in addition to appearing in 14 episodes of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody as Muriel. Also noteworthy was a guest spot as herself in a 2009 episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, where she appeared alongside fellow Seinfeld cast members Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards.

Her comically shrill voice led to a healthy voice-acting career, securing her the role of Mrs. Potato Head in the Toy Story franchise. Other voice work included Kim Possible, Dave the Barbarian, Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mouse. She also voiced one-off characters on Family Guy, American Dad! and Futurama.

Harris’ film credits included This Is My Life, CBGB and Playing Mona Lisa, among others.

Nehemiah Persoff, a late-blooming actor who built one of the busiest careers in Hollywood, playing rogues, ringleaders, revolutionaries and refugees - among other memorable portraits of sympathy and villainy - in more than 200 film and TV roles, died Tuesday at a care center in San Luis Obispo, Calif. He was 102.

The cause was congestive heart failure, said his son Jeff.

Love Gilbert. Hands down the funniest comic in my lifetime.  The only person who has made me laugh so hard I cried. I'm going to miss him so much.

Holy Moly. I just watched a Naked City episode with him in it. Loved him as Jake Guzik in The Untouchables. R.I.P.
