Charlotte Killey wrote one final blog before dying of bowel cancer Tuesday.
She’s been blogging about her life with cancer since 2013. She wrote this post after being diagnosed with days or weeks left to live.
> As you read this, I will no longer be here. Rich will be trying to put one foot in front of the other, to get by, a day at a time, knowing I will no longer awake next to him. He will see me in the luxury of a dream, but in the harsh morning sun, the bed will be empty. He will get two cups from the cupboard, but realise there is only one coffee to make. Lucy will need someone to reach for her hairband box, but there won’t be anyone to plait her hair. Danny will have lost one of his Lego policeman, but no one will know exactly which one it is or where to look. You will look for the latest update on the blog. There won’t be one, this is the final chapter.
Trailer for a documentary about the life of Batman star Adam West.
He was at the top of Hollywood in the late 60s. Then his career hit a wall in 1970.
Two theories: He has a fantastic voice, but I’ve never seen him turn in a good performance as an actor. Everywhere I’ve seen him, he’s been wooden. That was the shtick in Batman, and it worked, but most acting roles require, y’know, acting.
On the other hand, I don’t remember seeing him in anything other than Batman, and a few stunt-cast roles where he played himself.
Also, was he a pain in the ass to work with? Producers will put up with a pain in the ass who’s in-demand star, but they’ll cut him lose in a red-hot minute when he stops making money. Whereas stars who behave professionally can often continue getting work when their star fades (something I have tried to keep in mind during the ups in my own career).
