Comes a Time...


In keeping with K9's post, I have voted Dick Clark most disturbing sight of 2009. Comes a time when it is good to pull the plug and I think Dick has passed the mark. When you consider Bondo make up and have to ask Ryan Seacrest to help out it is time to move on. He looks as though he were dead, but just hadn't been informed - that or it wasn't really Dick Clark, but a Muppet made to look like him. Toss in some of Disney's animotronics and ol' Dick could be doing Rockin' New Year's Eve 2020.

So to Dick "Zombie" Clark, goodnight and good bye, please!!!

I had that thought about the Dickster about 8 years ago. Can't believe he's still doing it.

I wonder if Fat Albert Gore will be ranting about Global Warming and ManBearPig to new generations 30 and 60 years hence.

Troll: Most politicians outlive their usefulness to society in about 2-3 months, some quicker than that, but they seem very resilience. Looks at uncle Teddy, cancerous brain tumor and still going strong.

foam: They have to by applying the make up with a shovel. His face looks plastic - that's where I came up with the Muppet theory.

Dick Clark may or may not be a Muppet, it is of little consequence. One thing is for sure though, someone has had their hand in Ryan Seacrest for a long time.

I can see it now a creepy robot Dick Clark, made like one of the "hall of president's" robots at the chuckee cheese restaurants.

I think he recently had a stroke! Its just sad that the people he loves and trusts to advise him are letting him go out there and do that. On the flip side, perhaps he needs the money... idk

Hope you had a great NYE!

Trev:Seacrest is another example of how someone with no talent rises to the top in show business. Probably sleeping with Network CEOs.

Becky: Animatronic Mr. Lincoln would kick his ass.

LL: Strike Dick repeatedly with a shovel and then use it to dig a hole and bury him. Don't forget to drive a shard of vinyl 45 through his heart so he doesn't rise again.

AB: I just finished "Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan, "A Brillant Solution: Inventing the American Constitution" by Carol Berkin, "American Creation" by Joseph J. Ellis, and am working on "Thomas Jefferson" a series of essays on Jefferson and the politics of nature edited by Thomas S. Engeman. The last one reads like a series of Doctoral Thesis and has been slow going for me.

Helene: Good point. There are a lot of "was-someones" out there struggling to make ends meet. Well, there's always the old actor's home.

Dick Clark's been scary for awhile now. It makes me feel like he's being exploited when I see him.

Well, I believe that Hollywood has cornered the market on keeping folks young, now.
I mean, thanx to some of the special effects they do with recording their every facial movements on computer, then, we can look forward to seeing (if we are indeed reincarnated) such stars as Eddie Murphy and Keanu Reeves well into the twentiseventh century!

Dick, though?
Dang! Sorry, Dick. We just didn't have that capability back when you were young....

(....or, we could always fall back on SNL's take on Generalissimo Franco...."Here we are, folks, getting ready to celebrate the year 3000, and, here at my side is the body in state of Dick Clark! Still looks like the first day he dropped the ball, doesn't he? Take it away, Eddie Murphy")
