I’m thinking I need a topic

Nothing To Do With Arbroath, billed as “a daily mish-mash of stuff, fluff and nonsense,” will neither mish nor mash in the future: Kevin Gray, its proprietor, has passed away. (Last post: 17 January.)

The Presurfer, billed as “Your Daily Dose of Diversion since 2000,” has run out of diversions: Gerard Vlemmings, its proprietor, has passed away. (Last post: 17 February.)

I damned well better make it past St. Patrick’s Day.

    Another recent death: Tommy Page, early ’90s teen singer who was friends with Tiffany and NKOTB and had a #1 Billboard hit (“I’ll Be Your Everything”).

    better write ahead! I think my last post would be Thanksgiving. Of course, the one before that would be from late September…

    Tommy Page was an interesting fellow. After he put his music career to sleep, he took an executive position at Warner Bros. Records, and eventually became publisher of Billboard. Apparently he died by his own hand.

    I rarely have posts ahead these days so if I stop abruptly, I’m dead, in the hospital for some major emergency, or have somehow gotten myself incarcerated.

    I….hope my blog never stops abruptly, none of those options are nice to contemplate.

    My blog has stopped abruptly. I have not, luckily. And I certainly hope that you don’t either, Charles. You have real friends, even if you only see their pixels on the screen.
