Here is a spot to discuss and pay tribute to classic celebrities that have recently passed away.

(Since it's a new year and the old "RIP" topic has 40 pages, I figured it's about time we got a new space. The only rule is to keep everything respectful!)

Hey Beatlebob! Hopefully the weather has calmed down at least somewhat in your area? I'm glad the summer time is finally here for me! 

Now it's warm enough outside for me to take walks, which is what my therapist recommended I start doing right before she left, because walking releases endorphins which help lift moods. I've been going through severe depression lately, which is also part of the reason why I'm rarely online. I know, right? Those young interns are never any help! Unfortunately I've had my fair share of those too! Let's hope our next therapists will be good people, although they can never fully replace our old ones who are mature, experienced, caring and professional!! It will be difficult starting from scratch but what can we do?? We have no choice!

I see you know who Bobby Diamond is. RIP to him and Rory Erickson of the 13th Floor Elevators, who just passed away at age 71. I always liked their song "You're Gonna Miss Me".

Aww! Thanks for understanding! You will ALWAYS be my special friend FOREVER!!! :-)
Our friendship will outlast any website!! I'm relieved you know my e-mail address because who knows what will happen to this site and the Beatles one next year?? It's a new decade and the whole Ning network might shut down. It's not just this site but the whole Internet in general I will be quitting, except for checking my email sometimes.
I'm just not interested in social media anymore. I won't have much time to be online anyway because I'll be juggling a new career and I'm busy dealing with my depression & anxiety problems. I was also recently told that I am obsese, which got me so worried about my health. My father got Diabetes Type 1 in his early 30s which is around my age and I fear I'm headed down the same road. So I'm starting on a diet and exercise routine right away before it's too late! Sorry to ramble on a bit but just wanted to let you know all the crazy crap that's been going on in my life at the moment. Rarely do I have a regular day anymore without any problems! I see you're the same way. We should be used to the crazy life by now. LOL!!
Thank you for always being there for me! Sometimes talking to you is even better than talking to any therapist! Have a fab month of June! :-)

Hey Sadie! Thanks! Yes, the weather has calmed down here for me too. Except for the occasional lightning storm and some rain. I'm Glad the summer time is finally here for me too! :-) Glad it's warm enough for you there outside to be able to take walks. The same for here too. I see your therapist recommended that you start taking walks right before she left, because walking releases endorphins which help lift moods. Yes, my Doctor told me to do the same. I'm So Sorry that you've been going through severe depression lately!!! :-( Which is also part of the reason why you're rarely online! Really!! Going through a severe depression makes you not in the mood to do the things you normally want to do!! I've been going through a lot of anxiety lately. I Hope We Both start Felling Better!! Yes! Those young interns we talked about are never any help!!! And I see unfortunately you've had your fair share of those too!! :-( Thanks!! I Surely Hope both of our next therapists will be good people!!! I agree, they can never fully replace our old ones who are mature, experienced, caring and professional!! :-( But Hopefully we will wind up with ones who are as close as can be to our old ones!!! I know it will be difficult starting from scratch, but what can we do? :-( We have no choice!!! Let's just Hope for the Best!!!!

I had my three month appointment on Wednesday with my Urologist. Another painful experience. But, it wasn't too bad this time!! I see him again in three months.

Yes, I do remember who Bobby Diamond is!! Sorry to hear about Roky Erickson of the 13th Floor Elevators, who just passed away at age 71. RIP to Bobby Diamond and Roky Erickson.
Thanks for sharing the Video of "You're Gonna Miss Me"!!! I Liked that song too!!

"Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson was an American musician and singer-songwriter. He was a founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators and a pioneer of the psychedelic rock genre. July 15, 1947 – May 31, 2019)
Erickson co-founded the 13th Floor Elevators in late 1965, aged 18. The band released their debut album The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators in 1966. It contained the band's only charting single, Erickson's "You're Gonna Miss Me". A stinging breakup song, the single remains probably Erickson's best-known work: it was a major hit on local charts in the U.S. southwest and appeared at lower positions on national singles charts as well. Critic Mark Deming writes that "If Roky Erickson had vanished from the face of the earth after The 13th Floor Elevators released their epochal debut single, "You're Gonna Miss Me", in early 1966, in all likelihood he'd still be regarded as a legend among garage rock fanatics for his primal vocal wailing and feral harmonica work."

I was also sorry to hear about Dr. John's passing!! Malcolm John Rebennack (November 20, 1941 – June 6, 2019), better known by his stage name Dr. John, was an American singer and songwriter. His music combined blues, pop, jazz, boogie-woogie and rock and roll. Best known songs: Right Place Wrong Time, and Such a Night. And some more! I seen him with my cousin in concert at the Filmore East when I was 17. It was during the Dr. John the Night Tripper tour. RIP Dr. John aka Malcolm John Rebennack

From "The Last Waltz" Dr. John - Such a Night and Dr. John - Right Place Wrong Time
