    One of my favorite scenes had Ward going over to talk to Mr. Rutheford about something Lumpy did (forgot what) and Lumpy's hiding out upstairs. So Mr. R is (at first) calmly asking him to come down. And the more Ward reveals about the situation the angrier Mr. R gets. He starts out with "Clarence, would you come down son." But it ends with "LUMPY! YOU GET DOWN HERE!" Hilarious stuff. Love that scene.

    RIP, one of the all time great bullies.

    That's a great one. I also love the Lumpy episode when Wally and Eddie tie a tow chain to Lumpy's axle and the car is destroyed.

    Richard LeParmentier, who played Admiral Motti in Star Wars. I'm surprised he was American, but he apparently was raised in the UK. He died in Austin.

    This thread feels like a swing and a miss, so I'll bench it.

    ^ It's grim but at the same time, I think it's a decent place to note the passing of smaller named celebrities.

    "Don't give up on us baby..."

    C'mon, Greg. It's only been a week. You gotta give things a chance to catch on. I'm subscribed. And I'm really curious to see if it grabs hold. Keep hope alive! :D

    I would have added Richie Havens to the list today if you hadn't beaten me to it.

    I lived, for six years, near Max Yasgur's farm. I was there for the talk-up to the 20th anniversary celebration of the Woodstock Music Festival (which took place nowhere near Woodstock, NY for the uninitiated). And Richie was an ever-present participant in the anniversary shows/discussions/etc.

    Interesting back story about the local sentiment on the history of the event. The locals, for years, ran from talk of the festival because of the trauma inflicted on the region by the infusion of people for that three-day period in 1969. Local officials were vilified for allowing it to happen. Political careers were ruined. Others were begun. As anyone who has ever seen the documentary can understand the rather surreal nature of the event--the likes of which will likely never be seen again...it was an intense thing for this bucolic, rural part of NY's Catskill Mountain range to suddenly have a half-million people knocking at their door.

    I guess it should be a Very Good Thing if this thread gets few posts. :)

    To me, Richie Havens deserves his own thread, but that's just me. Interesting to read about Alan Arbus and his first marriage to Diane Arbus

    Another great Lumpy episode on LEAVE IT TO BEAVER. His dad, played by the always wonderful Richard Deacon, was trying to arrange who would sit where on the way to a join camping trip. As I recall, it became a running joke that started with "Well, Ward" and then would go on." Well, Ward, June, Clarence and young Theodore can sit in the ... no wait. That won't work. Well, Ward ..." I still have a tendency to start what I know will be long-winded pronouncments with "Well, Ward", to the complete puzzlement of those who didn't grow up with The Beav.

    I can't believe no one added Ray Harryhausen (d:May 7, 2013).
    I don't recall seeing another thread for him.

    A double whammy of sorts from the music world:

    Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist extraordinaire of The Doors, last week at 74.

    And now...

    Marvin Junior of the Dells, yesterday at the age of 77.
