I have a few notebooks lying around, which I can rarely find, so I thought it best to start up yet another blog, which has the express purpose of discussing my activity regarding nostalgic research of characters that might or might not be dead. You know, those types that you maybe have not thought about for a while, and which you try to make a note of to yourself (if you had your notebook), to research later on wikipedia.
If this blog takes, it will be my journal of (1) jotting these subjects for potential research and (2) eventual results. It will be fairly stream of conscious and raw, not so manicured.
As an example, I was watching Rango today, and while marveling at the strange creatures, I found that the turtle uncannily resembled...what's his name, Eddy Arnold? The actor on Green Acres and Outer Limits, classic TV actor of the 60s. I figured, no it is doubtful that they would be alluding to him, and even more doubtful that his voice would be use; surely he is retired, if not long dead.
In my next post I will write about these results.
As the blog title might confer, this stuff is related to the obituaries. Some of the subjects will be in the public domain, or somewhat well known, while other subjects will be far more obscure, warrenting at best an obituary of my old home town newspaper, if it still exists.
