Kimo's world #27
Watching dead people entertain

Most of my Favorite movies and television shows  feature actors and actresses that have expired, that are no longer with us.

There's something about watching dead people  entertain. Since they are captured on film and video it's like their lives  have never ended.

Carroll O'connor who played Archie Bunker in the television series, "All in the family still makes me laugh til this day.

Andy Griffin from the Andy Griffin show that took place in Mayberry N. Carolina with  his son Opey played by famed director Ron Howard are like family to me. I grew up watching Andy and Opey.

Even an older Griffin playing Ben Matlock a defense attorney is still another of my favorites.

With so many stations to chose from, I still like watching classic TV from the past. It's like watching from beyond, seeing Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling on TV to this day is like they never died.

Similarly, my blog lives in a infinite universe... That's better than living in infamy, some  may differ?

 With close to 1400 blogs in the last five years, many subjects have been covered. If you Google dakinetalk, or dakinetalk and any subject, many choices will appear... Even on days I do not post blogs, dakinetalk blog  has been getting upwards of 400-500 hits a day on archived blogs.

Just like classic TV is continually viewed. Reruns of "All in the family" and "Seinfeld" now in syndication  are doing just as good or better as when the shows were in their primes.

I guess if you want eternal life,  choose acting as a career and hope you have  an award winning show that lives forever. Blogging  will hopefully live on eternally too, and should it not, we will never know.

And if all else fails there is always religion, not that there's anything wrong with that!

Rumors of Jewel's death are greatly exaggerated!

KimoRosen said...

Rumors, I never heard rumors?

Pete Antonson said...

You featured her with your column on dead entertainers

KimoRosen said...

Good point! I probably should not had done that, however I also mentioned Seinfeld. I need you as a copy editor!

Pete Antonson said...

Damn good thing you didn't choose Robin Williams or even I would start getting scared of you!

KimoRosen said...

I was actually think the same thing! ;D) bummer about Robin Williams... "Money can't buy happiness...

KimoRosen said...

Robin Williams" passed away the same day I posted, Watching dead people entertain..."

Somewhat ironic... RIP Robin.

Money cannot buy happiness...
