James Doohan 85, Who? Ohh that guy....7/20/05

James Doohan who is known by sci fi geeks and D&D players around the world passed away today. Doohan was known as "Scotty" the engineer from Star Trek. I was never a fan of the show or the movies but who can't help themselves from doing a "I just can't do it!" like Scotty use to day. Doohan was also not a fan of old Bill Shatner either....seems like no one likes him. Candle light vigil same place and same time. Anyway here it is, not one of my better efforts but hey its been a while....

Goodbye James Doohan
Geeks knew you pretty well
You kept the Enterprise running
"I just can’t do it!" you said so well
You crawled out of Canada
Fake Scottish accent your game
Became a Sci-fi icon
Who really knew your real name

And it seemed to me that you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
No one liked Captain Kirk
Seems he’s being a dick again
And I wouldn’t want to know you
Even if I was a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Bad impressions of you ever did

Step into the A.M.

I have no idea why I titled this that but anyway, I guess I could have called it "New Email Address....Same Stupid Stuff". I've set up an email address that all of the new CITW versions will come from and I have added everyone to the list who was getting them before and I've added the most powerful set of thumbs in, I guess now, Hammond Indiana as well.

A little site you may want to check out is you can set it up where they will email you when a celebrity death occurs. They have a lot of obscure deaths on there if you are interested in their email.

So if you want to be added to the update list just let me know at Chris if you are reading this I don't have your email address up here since you moved back up here.

Back from the 4th of July hiatus

Well Luther Vandross passed away over the weekend and the crack staff here at CITW took holiday weekend off. We'll return once anohter celebrity over the Branigan line takes the big dirt nap. Stay classy and thanks for stopping by. If you want to be emailed every time a new CITW remix is posted send me an email through this site and I'll set you up.
