It was all on LP.

See, when you come out of those upbeat threads, man, it's impossible to make those transitions, and then you gotta go into somebody dying. You know, they do this to me all the time. I don't know what the hell they do it for. I want somebody to use his farking brain to not come out of a goddamn story that is-that's upbeat and I gotta read about a farking DJ dying!"  Is Drew on the phone?

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.

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.

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.

Family, man.

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.

/the ONLY AT40 that was remotely listenable since Seacrest took over was when Jimmy Fallon guest-hosted a couple of years back
//he made it like it used to be:  music-driven, informative, and entertaining

B.L.Z. Bub: borg: Luven: She probably doped him up , changed the will and then made him vanish so they can't contest it. The family needs to retain some professional help (kneecappers) to find out where she hid him.

Since he can no longer speak and has the mental capacity of a child. Any will signed after 2011 would likely be null and void.

Where did it say anything about his mental capacity?


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.

Forbidden Doughnut: Forlorne Greene: Man, we joke around but this guy's had a tough life:

1)  Born in Detroit.
2)  This.

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.

Ambivalence: Does it make me a bad person if, when I read that, my first thought is that Kasem is dead and his wife just doens't want to give up control of his money or share an inheritance?


The boyfriend here read aloud the story from the LA Times and that's pretty much the *first* thing I said.... then again, I read far too many true crime novels.

Second guess is some kind of violent moment as a frustrated caregiver, which I hate even thinking about, and someone has hid all the evidence.

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.
