RIP Albert Finney

English actor Albert Finney has died at the towering age of 82.

Albert Finney was an accomplished actor who was nominated for an Oscar five times during his long career. He was in ‘Scrooge,’ ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ from 1974, ‘Skyfall’ and, my personal favorite, the imaginative ‘Big Fish.’

At this point, we are all thinking the same thing. So instead of delaying the inevitable, here is that scene from ‘Big Fish’ that everyone who was a fan of Albert Finney is thinking of right now.

It’s the magic of life celebrated the way we see it.

RIP Albert Finney.

Happy Monday!

Mondays are not fun. That’s just the way it is. It picked the short straw. However, despite its lifelong misfortune and frustrating, unreversible reputation, there are always opportunities to find something good on this day.

This discovery just might include a random card filled with good wishes of positivity from a certain kind of wonderful mom.

The source of this discovery may come from famed actor Will Smith, who is relentlessly positive. He is relentlessly positive about inspiring perfect strangers (beyond Larry Appleton & Balki) and he is relentlessly determined about…

That’s why Will Smith is forever known as the fresh prince.

Happy Monday

RIP John Mahoney

Famed actor John Mahoney died this past Sunday at 77.

Best known for his role as Frasier Crane’s dad, Mr. Mahoney entertained TV and movie audiences with his affable personality for more than three decades. Celebrated for his extensive acting career, perhaps it’s best that most connect him with the Martin Crane character. Inside the fictional high-society world of Frasier, old Marty Crane was a relatable reality to viewers. And he did so with humor and goodness.

If you ask me, that’s a pretty great legacy.

Next time you’re drinking a beer (especially if you can find a Ballantine), raise a glass to Martin Crane John Mahoney.
