Film and TV composer Earle Hagen has died at the age of 88. Mr. Hagen was well known for composing some of the most memorable TV show themes including the themes to The Andy Griffith Show and I Spy.

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/...0,3376917.story

This follows the infamous Hollywood trend of celebrities dying in threes...

First comedian Dick Martin, then film director, producer, and actor Sydney Pollack, and now film and TV composer Earle Hagen.
Will 2011 be it for the following?
Fidel Castro, Kim Jong-il, Dick Cheney, Margaret Thatcher, Billy Graham, Aretha Franklin, Ariel Sharon, Peter Falk, Elizabeth Taylor, Annette Funicello, Gerry Rafferty (RIP, gone right down the line to Heaven), Kirk Douglas, Zsa Zsa Gabor, James Garner, Jerry Lewis, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sir Richard Attenborough, Dick Clark, Harlan Ellison, Michael Douglas (joker)

Ahem.. *Cough* Erm.. the final was at Wankdorf Stadium. *Snigger*

Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Former South African footballer Abram Raselemane has been found dead. The 30 year old, who gained 16 caps, had apparently taken his own life.
Oh, Mickey! What's EGREGIOUS?!

Shame about Beryl Cook. You've got to feel for anyone who spends their life labouring under the misapprehension that Plymouth is a great city.

Moving on, there are very few people left alive who use an iron lung. Now there is one less, following a power cut in Boston, which killed Dianne Odell, 61, who had relied on the machine since she was 3 years old.
Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.

58 years in a metal box, the rest of eternity in a wooden one. Still, she sounds like she made more of her life than many of us.

Thanks BCAlum, I was just seeing if it had been reported on the web after I had my dinner.
I'm surprised that Dom DeLuise is still alive, I thought he would have beaten Korman to it

Click on the link, she had a better telly than half of us posting on here. Has anyone got first dibs on it or can I offer the family a few quid?

Oh aye, and another link for Harvey Korman.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Aye, hefty article in today's Observer on the young man. Also a lengthy article on psychotherapist RD Laing and his - often - f**ked up kids, mentioning the fact that his son Adam died recently.
