I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to Dom DeLuise, who passed away yesterday at the age of 75.  The guy made me laugh quite a bit when I would watch those movies he starred in during the ’70s and early ’80s.  The guy was funny.  Plain and simple.


Here is Dom DeLuise cracking up in outtakes of the movie The Cannonball Run.  This film came out in 1981 and had what was referred to back then as an “all-star” cast.  Hard to argue.  It had Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Dean, Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Farah Fawcett, Terry Bradshaw, Jackie Chan, Henry Fonda, and of course, Dom DeLuise.  Not bad, huh?  If you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and and watch it sometime.  Warning:  Sense of humor required.

Anyway, this was the first Burt Reynolds – Dom DeLuise flick I watched as a kid.  And I loved it.  Always brings back good memories.  Thanks for the laughs, Dom.

Today's Deep Thought

  • My parents used to abandon me a lot as a child. In the morning, they'd take me to my school and then abandon me there, until school got out. Then at night, after they tucked me in bed, they'd abandon me and go to sleep in their own bedroom. Sometimes they'd let me sleep with them in their room, but if I started playing my guitar they'd take me back to my bedroom and abandon me again. Once, they abandoned me for a whole week, at my grandparents' house.
