Fishnets For Vigoda!





As I mentioned in my mass email earlier today, G.W. Ferguson and I have decided to get an Abe Vigoda Posse going, and by having as many people post "Fishnets For Vigoda" along with the photo above, well, maybe we can get a huge hit on the Googleometer. The guy deserves the fame, folks. I've got a link to his personal blog, which is updated every day just to state that he is still alive. Mind you, I was sad when Jerry Orbach died, and I'm certain Sid Ceaser will go soon. But I wish the best to Mr. Vigoda, that he makes it another fourteen years, hits the age of 100, and is guest of honor at the Chicago Summer Olympics in 2016 along the way. (On the downside, I can say that I'm more than HALF Abe Vigoda's age. The humanity!). Please read this, pass it on, and tell all of your personal commenters to post FFV on their blog. Thanks, gang. I have photos from this week's Twilight Tales readings and will post them tonight or tomorrow...Wayne

You know, I can't tell you a single TV show that I've ever seen Abe Vigoda in. I know he's an actor, and I'm sure I've seen him at some time or another, but I couldn't name any of those experiences now. Was he really in Chips? I only watched a couple episodes of that.

I recall the outrage when FISH was canceled.

It warms my heart on those rare occasions when old Sid shows up on someone's talk show. He's such a sweetie. He and his peers were the best, and absolute Icons. We're so fortunate that all their work is available on DVD now.
