An astronaut who flew on one of the most famous space missions of all time has died. Michael Collins, 90, was part of the three-member crew on Apollo 11, the first lunar landing mission in 1969. Unlike Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, he never walked on the moon. Collins stayed behind and piloted the command module as it circled above. Because of that, Collins is often called the 'forgotten astronaut'.

Collins had been battling cancer. In a statement released by his family, "He spent his final days peacefully, with his family by his side. Mike always faced the challenges of life with grace and humility, and faced this, his final challenge in the same way."

NASA Administrator Steve Jurczyk said the nation lost a true pioneer, "NASA mourns the loss of this accomplished pilot and astronaut, a friend of all who seek to push the envelope of human potential. Whether his work was behind the scenes or on full view, his legacy will always be as one of the leaders who took America's first steps into the cosmos. And his spirit will go with us as we venture toward farther horizons."

During the Apollo 11 mission, Collins became the loneliest man in history. When the command module was on the far side of the moon, nobody had ever been that far away from everyone else.

Anita Lane, an Australian singer-songwriter known for collaborating with Nick Cave and the Birthday Party as well as her own recordings, has died at 62.

Cave paid tribute on social media, tweeting, “From her to eternity” — a perhaps inevitable eulogy, given that the song that went by that title was her most famous co-write and one of the most celebrated songs by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Billie Hayes, whose portrayal of the flamboyantly and comically wicked witch Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf, died of natural causes Thursday April 29 at Cedar’s Hospital in Los Angeles. She was 96.

Her death was announced by her family.

A Broadway veteran by the time she reached national fame as the flute-stealing nemesis to a psychedelic dragon, Hayes had starred as Mammy Yokum in both the Broadway and film versions of the popular late-1950s musical Lil’ Abner. She’d made her Broadway debut in New Faces of 1956 along with an ensemble that included actress Maggie Smith.

Such a shame between he and dmx. Kind of makes you worry of where the genre will go after all the talented artists are gone. I despise todays hip-hop . 70s through 2005 was the best. Itll probably die like rock n roll. In the last 20 21 years can anyone name a real rock n roll group when the millennium came that can hold a candle to the bands of the 80s and 90s??

Saturday morning television shows for kids are just a memory. The Cartoon Network, the Disney Channel and so forth made them obsolete.

Oh i agree. I just recently did a 90s binge with mighty max street sharks and making my way through gargoyles wich i never watched as a kid. I was a tmnt lifer so i ignored gargoyles. 90s was the last great decade for tv and music imo. Even some films. I remember in 2014 i went to visit family in dekalb here in Illinois wich is a good hour hour 45 depending on traffic and i saw a phone booth. Im like holy shit talk about nostalgia. Todays generation wouldnt know what a phone booth or phone book is. Hell i remember pagers. Specificaly my brothers . It was vomit dark green. Just for nostalgia ill watch old 90s talk shows and toy commercials. You dont see toy commercials anymore. You dont see wall phones anymore wich back than were 20 bucks . Today we pay a few hundred to 1200 for 1 cell phone depending on the brand.

Frazier Glenn Miller, don't RIP.

What a contemptible idiot this person was. He went to a Jewish center to kill Jews, but the three people he killed weren't Jews. Even the Ku Klux Klan hated him, because he once testified against 14 of its leaders in exchange for a reduced sentence.

Model and singer Nick Kamen has died at the age of 59, according to multiple reports. There's no information as to the cause of death available at this time.

The Essex-born star rose to fame at age 18, after he appeared in a Levi's 501 commercial, filmed in a launderette in 1985, where he strips off down to his underwear to do laundry, while onlookers ogle. He soon became a sex symbol.

https://sports.yahoo.com/former-brew...161908922.html

Former Milwaukee Brewers manager Del Crandall, who was an 11-time All-Star and key figure on the Milwaukee Braves teams of the 1950s, died Wednesday at age 91.

Crandall's two-pronged Milwaukee career included eight All-Star appearances as a Milwaukee Brave, four Gold Gloves at catcher and a key role on the 1957 World Series champion.

For Brewers fans, he's the manager who took a chance on an 18-year-old shortstop named Robin Yount in 1974, naming him the starter and kicking off a 20-year Hall of Fame career.

https://www.tmz.com/2021/05/08/tawny-kitaen-dead-dies/

Tawny Kitaen, the actress who starred in "Bachelor Party" and whose personal life was filled with radical ups and downs, has died ... TMZ has learned.

Kitaen died in Newport Beach Friday. The coroner has yet to determine cause of death.

Kitaen, whose credits include 'The Perils of Gwendoline' and "After Midnight," was a precocious child who got the showbiz bug at 14, when she saw Peter Frampton at Balboa Stadium in San Diego. She got a backstage pass and saw the All-Access VIP treatment Peter's GF, Penny, received, and that was it. She was hooked.

https://news.yahoo.com/barack-obama-...194919312.html

Former President Barack Obama announced his family's dog Bo died Saturday, saying the Obamas "lost a true friend and loyal companion."

"For more than a decade, Bo was a constant, gentle presence in our lives—happy to see us on our good days, our bad days, and everyday in between," Obama said in a post on Twitter accompanied with a photo of him running side-by-side with Bo through the White House.

"He tolerated all the fuss that came with being in the White House, had a big bark but no bite, loved to jump in the pool in the summer, was unflappable with children, lived for scraps around the dinner table, and had great hair," he said. "He was exactly what we needed and more than we ever expected. We will miss him dearly."
