Brittany Murphy Dead at 32

From King of the Hill to Sin City, Happy Feet to 8 Mile Brittany Murphy displayed her wide-ranging acting and voice talents. She could play a ridiculous and dense character or a despondent and brooding character while being thoroughly convincing in either role. She could be sexy or she could be laughable. Through it all she always struck me as a real, down-to-earth person. Granted I never met her, but if a Hollywood starlet can give off that impression from her platform then she is doing something right and something different. (more…)

Goodbye Bernie Mac

I must not know nearly as much as I thought I did about pneumonia. Not that I thought I knew a whole lot. But I certainly did not understand just how dangerous it really was. I thought it killed only babies and senior citizens. At 50 Bernie Mac was not exactly young, however to hear that he died of complications from pneumonia is pretty shocking. I wasn’t a big Bernie Mac fan in the sense that I didn’t seek out his work specifically or watch his movies just to see Bernie Mac. However, in every movie I did see him he made me laugh and he did without offending me which is a nice bonus. Granted I’m pretty hard to offend. So it’s quite sad to see him go. To some 50 may not sound that young. I kinda feel like he died young though.I feel like he had a lot more work to do and material to put out so it is sad that we will not have the opportunity to see him again.
Rest in peace Bernie Mac.
