RIP Harry Dean Stanton

Was in some memorably weird movies (Repo Man, Paris TX)

I guess he more or less kept working right up until he died at age 91.

Harry used to like to go out and drink and sing karaoke, especially at Improv on Melrose.

He used to like to have other singers who could actually sing harmonize with him (he was kind of a weirdo like a lot of stars; he have one of the chicks who worked there ask the singer to sing with him).

I sang a bunch of songs with Harry back in the day at Improv karaoke. His favorite song to sing with me was Harbor Lights.

Ironically yesterday I watched Mulholland Falls with my wife- for what ever wacky reason I had never seen it before and I finally rented it on byco's recommendation. The great Aaron Neville had a cameo and he was singing that song. I said to my wife "wow-that's the song I used to sing with Harry who just died yesterday."

that's a pretty damn good story.

I wish more cool celebrities lived in Houston so I could meet them too.

You mean Mulholland Dr.

Mulholland Falls, with the exception of the scene where Nick Nolte saps Alec Baldwin and his synch-os, that movie is bad. Except for the hats. The hats are awesome.

No I meant Mulholland Falls.

Sometime ago you referred to the scene that you just mentioned here. I took it as a recommendation.



I liked the movie. Jennifer Connelly is naked. There really is no bad movie that Jennifer Connelly is naked in.

And the hats are cool.

Oh but it's Daniel Baldwin, not Alec.

You read it wrong. In Mulholland Falls, Aaron Neville sings the classic Harbor Lights. That was the song Harry asked to sing with me the most.

I watched that movie the day after he died and remembered that. That's all.

I liked that scene and little else in Mull. Falls. Mull Dr. is a whole 'nuther story.
