Do any of you people know who Charles Whitman was?  None of you dumb a---- know?

Sir, he was that guy who shot all those people from that tower in Austin, Texas, sir!

Outstanding, private! Do you know where he learned to shoot?

Sir, in the Marines, sir!


Dammit! I can't believe the Full Metal Jacket reference flew right over my head!

Now Slim and Jeff Hanneman can finally put out that guitar duet album they've always wanted to do.

Yeah, he's the loser that climbed the tower at UT in Austin and shot several people.

Call me a weirdo, but I've always loved Slim Whitman.  Sad....but he lived a long, good life.

Thank you, Slim.

There was a rumor about a tumor nestled at the base of his brain.

Getting back to Slim Whitman: backin the late 70s, his albums were being pitched constantly on TV commercials that described him as a huge in the UK. When my family went to London on a vacation, one of my brothers tracked down his recording studio for the school paper to get to the bottom of the story.  He did get an autographed photo.

For a guy who sang some sad country-western songs, he lived a very long time.
While country music was always abrasive to me, country-western was always smoother and easier to listen to.   I did not think any of the old musicians of that age still were alive.

CSS time:

I grew up in Clay County, FL. Slim's granddaughter was a couple grades behind me in elementary school. I remember Slim and his son put on a concert in the field in the middle of our campus that was supposed to be a Really Big Deal. All I could think was that it was too farking hot for that mess and I'd rather be doing school work than listening to this while sweating bullets in the heat of June in Florida.
