Robert Altman 1925-2006

The final words of NASHVILLE;

"Y'all take it easy now. This isn't Dallas, it's Nashville! They can't do this to us here in Nashville! Let's show them what we're made of. Come on everybody, sing! Somebody, sing!"

Just yesterday I was doing some reading on SHORT CUTS and CALIFORNIA SPLIT - and now he is gone. Damn.

Kern - take some time and do a nice write up on all of the Altman stuff you have seen... I feel a little empty.

I remember very much enjoying "the player" and "gosford park".

I have "Praire Home Companion" on my Q.

He will be missed and remembered at Oscar time. He just won the lifetime achievement award last year!

Fino-I was going to do something today, but I realized that whatever slapdash thing I could throw up quickly wouldn't be good enough. Look for a decent eulogy quite soon.
