        Robert Morse, who translated Broadway stardom into a film career in the 1960s, then re-emerged decades later as one of the stars of “Mad Men,” has died. He was 90.

        Writer-producer Larry Karaszewski, who serves as a VP on the board of governors for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, tweeted news of Morse’s death on Thursday.

        “My good pal Bobby Morse has passed away at age 90,” he wrote. “A huge talent and a beautiful spirit. Sending love to his son Charlie & daughter Allyn. Had so much fun hanging with Bobby over the years – filming People v OJ & hosting so many screenings (How To Succeed, Loved One, That’s Life).”

        • Re Robert Morse, I highly recommend that anyone who hasn't watched The Loved One do so at once. It's one of only a handful of movies that deserve to be called a cult classic.
          The pandemic should have ended in the United States in March. You know why it didn't, don't you? Think about that every time you put on a mask.

            Montreal Canadiens icon Guy Lafleur, who captured five Stanley Cup titles and was a hockey hero in Quebec long before his NHL playing days, has died. He was 70.

            The cause of death was not immediately known. However, Lafleur suffered through health issues in the latter stages of his life. In September 2019, he underwent quadruple bypass heart surgery, which was followed by lung surgery two months later.

            Then, in October of 2020, he endured a recurrence of lung cancer.

            "We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Guy Lafleur. All members of the Canadiens organization are devastated by his passing," Canadiens President Geoff Molson said in a statement.

                You can be sure that nowhere else among the millions of entries in Wikipedia is there another biography whose subject is depicted as an “American artist and self-described ‘recovering groupie’ who gained fame for creating plaster casts of famous persons’ erect penises.” Cynthia Albritton, better known in rock lore as Cynthia Plaster Caster, died on April 21, 2022, following a long illness. No location was reported. She was 74.

                Albritton was best known, as the Wiki description points out, for making plaster molds of rock stars’ penises. (Not as well known is that she later cast some women’s breasts as well.) Among her most famous subjects were Jimi Hendrix and Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix Experience (two of the first to pose for her, in 1968), Eric Burdon of the Animals, Dennis Thompson and Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Eddie Brigati of the Rascals, Zal Yanovsky of the Lovin’ Spoonful, guitarist Harvey Mandel, and drummer Aynsley Dunbar. She quit making casts from 1971-80, then returned to it in the punk era, casting Dead Kenendys’ Jello Biafra, the Mekons’ Jon Langford, the Buzzcocks’ Pete Shelley and many others.

                Not all of her clients were rockers: British actor/singer Anthony Newley was one mainstream artist who agreed to be cast.

                        Robert Puff, one of the foremost music preparers working in concert and commercial music, and music notation software expert whose advice was available on his highly-regarded industry web site Of Note, died on Thursday, April 21, 2022 in the Seattle, Washington area after a battle with mantle cell lymphoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer. He was 66 years old.

                        Robert Puff was well known to a wide variety of individuals working in many areas of music. As head of his company RPM Seattle, he worked on projects for some of the most notable musicians and companies in film and video game music, ranging from films with scores by leading composers, to pops arrangements commissioned by the Symphonic Pops Consortium, to blockbuster video games produced by Blizzard Entertainment, such as the World of Warcraft series, where he regularly supervised music preparation for massive scores.

                        Robert was a resident of the Seattle, Washington area since early childhood. He earned a degree from the Cornish School of Allied Arts (now Cornish College of the Arts) in 1977, and despite being known to us as a music preparer, was first and foremost a performing musician, doubling on alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, clarinet, flute and tin whistle. He was on many session gigs as player, which later contributed to his keen understanding of what it took to create successful charts. He served as musical director for Aglow international conferences and toured Europe with the USO

                            Neal Adams, the legendary comic book artist who reinvigorated Batman and other superheroes with his photorealistic stylings and championed the rights of creators, has died. He was 80.

                            Adams died Thursday in New York of complications from sepsis, his wife, Marilyn Adams, told The Hollywood Reporter.

                            Adams jolted the world of comic books in the late 1960s and early ’70s with his toned and sinewy take on heroes, first at DC with a character named Deadman, then at Marvel with X-Men and The Avengers and then with his most lasting influence, Batman.

                            During his Batman run, Adams and writer Dennis O’Neil brought a revolutionary change to the hero and the comics, delivering realism, kineticism and a sense of menace to their storytelling in the wake of the campy Adam West-starring ’60s ABC series and years of the hero being aimed at kiddie readers.

                              Just saw that. I was hoping she'd like to 122 for record reasons. Oh well, she lived a long life. RIP!!!
