Hmmm.  If he's on an Indian Reservation, perhaps his trophy wife put him there for herbal and other woo-woo bullshiat treatments.  Jean Casem has always seemed to me to be the ultimate gold digger, ever since the early 80s when her husband was doing his best to start her career for her.  Lots of guest spots, no talent whatsoever.  Apart from being blonde and seeming stupid.

Unfortunately he may already be dead or very close to it. It sounds like his wife was trying to cut off any contact his family had to him and this just ensures they can't be with him in his final days.

I've loved Casey ever since I listened to him every single Sunday night doing the top 40 while playing Legos or drawing spaceships back in the '70s.

But you MUST search for and find the "Celebrities at their worst" compilation of some of Casey's hilarious expletive-filled outtakes from the shows!  Side-splittingly funny.

Since everyone else took the good Casey Kasem quotes, I'm just going to give props to the weekly 80s rebroadcasts. A few weeks ago, I not only remember the particular broadcast, I had taped certain songs on a cassette tape. It gave me chills and deja vu.

DarKrow: He's looking for the pictures he was supposed to see.


This has always been the most enigmatic part of that legendary clip. I always wondered what these "pictures" he was so worked up about not seeing were: headshots of him that he had to approve before they went into a press release? designs for a new studio or green room or office? a bunch of weird snapshots of naked chicks and cats and stuff (essentially the internet in paper form) that people back at the office had been circulating to much amusement but which hadn't gotten to Casey yet? "pictures" in the sense of "moving pictures" -- i.e. advanced screenings of upcoming movies that celebrities get invited to? Alas, now we'll never know.

Archimedes' Principal: Someone's going to get away with it too, unless we can find some meddling kids.


His kids are trying very hard to meddle, with only limited success. Perhaps they lack something, some sort of animal mascot. Maybe a cool van, too.

Srsly, this sucks. I can't imagine being kept from my dad by some nasty, gold digging biatch, especially if he was sick.
 
2014-05-12 07:16:34 PM  
In 2014, a little boy writes: Dear Casey. My name is Timmy and I'm six years old. My mom and dad are worried because they don't know where the fark you are. So where the fark are you? Signed, Timmy.

Well, Timmy, I wish I knew where the fark I was, I really do. But the truth is, I'm just an old man with a tyrannosaur for a wife and a bad case of dementia. You might say I'm lost in my own thoughts -- like the windmills of your mind. And that's our number six song for today, January 5th, 1972...

There's a long, lousy backstory to the situation. It makes me so sick I think I'll have to skip the comments.

My ex and I had a week long run-in with Jean Kasem when she was in DC filming a really 3rd rate movie. (college comedy)  Filming was set in several buildings at a small women's college in upper Georgetown, where my ex happened to be on faculty.

She goes into her office one morning to find Jean Kasem sitting in her chair, eating breakfast with food all over the desk and using her phone.   She couldn't believe that the beyotch had the gall to simply walk into someone's office and take it over like it was her own. (The strange thing was that Casey had a trailer delivered to the set just for Jean's use.)

I went by the place on my day off and the crew was so obviously annoyed with her that they were being openly hostile to her, while going out of their way to make nice to my ex-wife.  Casey actually showed up in a limo and she got in pouting and drove away, never to be seen on that set again.

So don't color me surprised by these developments.

Yeah, but I bet 1930's Detroit was a far less depressing place to live in than modern-day Detroit.....

/ even accounting for the "Great Depression"



In the 1930s, even with the Depression, Detroit was still a nice place to live (as large cities go, anyway), and by the 1940s, it was booming because of the productivity due to the war. In the 1950s it was booming because the auto industry was riding high.

Detroit's downfall only came on after Motown turned to shiat, the Big Three automobile manufacturers abandoned Detroit by moving all their factories to Asia, Mexico, or Canada to save money, and nonpartisan criminals (running as "D" but beholden to no one) started playing politics to steal the city's remaining resources.

Add to that corrupt cops, gangs getting a foothold, and Devil's Night being jumped on by every disreputable business owner who wanted to claim insurance (it started out with people torching drug dens and rival gang hangouts, but the business owners realized they could hire firebugs to torch their place on Devil's Night and the fire department would be too busy to get to it, thus allowing the business to be completely destroyed and getting the owner a nice insurance payout.) -- Thanks to Devil's Night activities, whole NEIGHBORHOODS were slowly but surely burned to rubble and ash. My ex-wife grew up there, and the neighborhood where she lived is now several rows of crumbling foundation and burnt lumber, with a few skeletal, charred house frames left on the ends.

So yeah... Detroit was nice a long time ago, and I'm positive Casey Kasem got out LOOOONG before it turned to hell on Earth.

He has Parkinson's Disease, and at this point it's unknown if he's being treated properly for it since his wife won't allow any of his children to visit. That's very worrying. Fortunately today one of his daughters was granted temporary conservatorship over her father's healthcare, which means she'll be able to have access his medical records.

I prefer listening to old Casey Kasem AT40s than another outlet of Ryan Seacrest's Celebrity Gossip Empire.  Thankfully, one local station does indeed play old Casey Kasem AT40s, and its thus far been the only time I've heard both Elvis and Led Zeppelin played on the same station, and answered the one question I always had:  were Elvis and Zep in the Top 40 at the same time?  My co-workers thought I'd gone insane when Immigrant Song played... AND THEN the King himself came on.  It was also the only time I've heard Chuck Berry on the radio since I was a kid; unfortunately it was the worst song he's ever recorded.

This is happening right now in my family.  I'd been taking care of my grandma since my mom died.  A couple years later, when it became clear she needs assisted living, the community for older people where she lived called her estranged son.  He offered to take her in, and despite me having power of attorney, her docs and accountant stopped talking to me because he was "her son."  He's always had a bad relationship with her, but she's the sort of person who will forgive people for anything.  And of course, the rest of the family have had to rescue her from grifters 3-4 times because of that.  Her "friends" will move in, give her a sob story, refuse to work, steal her pain meds, and she'll let them stay if they say "sorry" every time.

I let her move in with him and handed over power of attorney because it's what she wanted, and it was revokable anyhow if I said "no."  As of about 2 months ago, they've stopped picking up my calls.  I don't have the address.  Last I heard, she was in the hospital.  I have no idea if she's OK.

Whether someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease with dementia, or with Lewy Body dementia, is kind of a toss-up - it depends on which set of symptoms manifests itself more strongly, first.

Either way, it's a lousy way to go (my mother died of complications due to LBD). It's not like Alzheimer's style dementia (which my grandma had), where people tend to forget the present and more recent past in favor of the distant past. The Parkinson's symptoms include the shuffle and the blank face and the shaky hands, but the dementia is just like... something going haywire with the brain wiring, so patients say nonsensical things, and have hallucinations, and yet still know that they are on the downhill slide.  Also unlike Alzheimer's, there's no clear progression to the disease - some live with horrible symptoms for 20 years. Mercifully, my mother dealt with the worst for only about 7 months.

Anyway... wherever he is, he may yet be pretty much aware of being away from home and not being able to see his kids. If he really has reached non-verbal stage, then his chances aren't good for surviving much longer. (The inability to use your vocal chords also ties in with not being able to swallow right, leading to issues like inhaling food and coming down with pneumonia.)

I wish him peace before the end.
