R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett


Well what can I say? Certainly personal tragedies are more important to us than the deaths of celebrities. That being said, who can't help but feel a bit sad for the passing of a classic '70s icon, American beauty Farrah Fawcett? Like most young men of the mid-to-late 1970s, I was enamored of Farrah's classic wholesome beauty. Her iconic poster was pretty much everywhere back then. (Here's a neat story about that poster and the guys who produced it.) She became a symbol of that era, cemented by her single season (!) appearance on the TV show CHARLIE'S ANGELS. She WAS the '70s, and truly one of it's icons.



Anyway, I was saddened to hear of her struggle with cancer and of her passing yesterday. In memory, I give you this clip from the movie LOGAN'S RUN (1976):



Rest in peace, Farrah.

Your clip ties in to the other death of the day, with the whole plastic surgery thing. Such an odd sci-fi classic.

I was wondering if anyone would notice that.

Indeed. I was a bit too old and liked Punk and New Wave stuff so I never got into his music. R.I.P. Michael.
