Palance Would Have Wanted It This Way

Sad News: He made me laugh hard when he co-starred in City Slickers, and scared me in a whole bunch of poorly made, low-budget thrillers that I saw on late-night TV when I was a kid. And his push-ups at the Oscars was classic TV.

Jack Palance died today of natural causes, at age 87.

My favorite Jack Palance quote: "Most of the stuff I do is garbage." If only we all could be so honest.

(By the way, my grandma-in-law may be right...)

Spidey news: The newest Spider-Man 3 trailer looks pretty cool. You can check it out here.

It's A Small World News: LONDON (AFP) - A man was rushed to hospital in Britain with severe internal injuries after trying to launch a powerful firework from his bottom, an ambulance service spokesman said.

A spokesman for the North East ambulance service said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding."

He is now recovering in a Sunderland hospital after sustaining internal injuries including a scorched colon.

That's a damn shame.
And not because Palance was one of the few real "guys" left in Hollywood.
The damn shame is his death gets crammed into a blog entry alongside SpiderMan news and some guy putting a firecracker in his ass.
I guess you have to have jewelery hanging from your ears to get a decent going away post on here.

God forbid Mr. T should pass away.....

That Spidey trailer looks pretty sweet. You gotta get psyched about the black suit.
Spider-Man 2 was absolutely awful.
