I used to love his appearances on Carson; he was always on the edge of comedy.

I want to see the Dean Martin roasts again, thinking about it.

If you've never seen them, You've missed a lot.

Man; I forget so easy, lol.

All the really good stuff was written back then; all there is now is remakes.

I rewatched "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World" recently; it's so much better than almost any comedy I've seen this millennium.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are no Bogie and Bacall, lol.

Oh, I saw a reference to the upcoming 50 year anniversary of "2001:A Space Odyssey".

That really made me feel old.

R.I.P. Mr.Rickles


In my book, he was the king of zingers too..

One of the things I admired most about Don, was his ability to zing you without being hurtful..
He would make you laugh, while he was zinging you..lol

It would have been amazing to spend an afternoon with this guy..

You will me missed!
