I rewatched the dentist skit on the Carol Burnett show. Dude was so funny his partner-in-crime Harvey Korman didn't stand a chance and broke constantly. Seriously one of the funniest guys on TV of all time. Didn't know he was battling dementia in recent years.


Was looking at his imdb bio, the guy worked really steady until 2015 must have kicked in then but he was sure busy over the years. McHales Navy, Rowan and Martin, Carol Burnett, Dorf a throw back to a different time but just so good.

Yeah, that sucks, but magazines (and comic books) have really suffered in the Age of the Internet.

One thing that always gets overlooked with MAD is that it ran without ads. My favorites were the Fold-Ins. The amount of work and skill it must have taken to make those is unreal.

Rutger Hauer, who delivered one of the greatest performances (and most memorable monologues, which he partially improvised) in the history of science fiction cinema, dies at 75.

:(
