I rescind my suspicion, but I'd seen a handful of articles in which they just said "cancer" which isn't what you usually see. Even with Farrah, they were clear: rectal cancer.

Add to that her history of drugs and her Scientology membership and its promises that a New Operating Thetan (OT) VIII, which is the most advanced OT, or spiritual state of being, doesn't get cancer, a vague mention wasn't enough to assuage my gimlet eye.

It was colon cancer.  I saw an interview this morning of a close personal friend and he said that she went in to have a back problem attended to and they determined it was colon cancer.  She had 9 rounds of chemo and it didn't touch it.  It was fast and quick.
Even our great Moffitt CC can't stop something when it has gone too far.  Please, please... get checked for Colon Cancer. The little swallow pill is so easy. I have lost so many family members to this easily fixed plague.

lol Okay yeah it's "Name a band from NZ. Not them, though."

Hmm spent a few minutes on the Wiki NZ indie artists page and there are a few I forgot or didn't know about, including the Verlaines. Unknown Mortal Orchestra started out there but they're in the US now.

Here's something you might like to start with. This is with his last collaboration, Pete's Posse.

The tall guy is Oliver Scanlon, who you will definitely hear from in the future. Pete recruited him while he was still in high school, where he (Pete) ran a traditional music program.

Gaylord Perry, legendary spitballer and Baseball Hall of Famer

Grew up with him.  First with the Giants, my original home team and then he got traded to my adopted home team, the Indians. Frank Duffy, also a Giant that I grew up with came along, too.  We even had Gaylord's brother, Jim Perry here at the same time and they were team mates for two years.

Gaylord made his games an event, a spectacle worth watching just to see him getting inspected and wondering if they would finally catch him.  Only one other in baseball had that distinction in my book, Orioles manager Earl Weaver.

Thanks for the wonderful summers of fun and adventure.

Aw, he was great. And these days we know the spitball isn't really a thing, but the head games involved certainly are!

A shame.

I'm more familiar with Shary Flenniken who drew Trots and Bonnie and is pretty deserving of that title.

They're both brilliant artists. I suspect more feminist artists would cite Kominsky-Crumb as an influence (see, for instance, Phoebe Gloeckner's Diary of a Teenage Girl) but I'll leave that argument for others more versed in the feminist movement. Very sorry to see her go.
