Randy’s Rad Celebrity Grave Tour

Hollywood Forever Sign

My excellent friend Randy, an enthusiastic collector of autographs and celebrity memorabilia, recently found the time to compile a thorough overview of celebrity graves he’s visited over the past decade. Randy sent me the link to this fun slideshow this past weekend. I thought that the virtual tour was so cool, I asked if I could share them with you, dear readers, and Randy agreed.

Randy’s Rad Celebrity Grave Tour, as I am calling it, includes photographs that Randy has taken of headstones, crypts and cenotaphs from a variety of beloved icons, including Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Jimmy Stewart, Errol Flynn, Truman Capote, Natalie Wood, Walt Disney, Spencer Tracy, Edith Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, Jean Seberg, Jayne Mansfield, Truman Capote, Johnny & Dee Dee Ramone, Vampira and dozens more. The photos were shot at Hollywood Forever (Los Angeles), Pierce Brothers’ Memorial (Westwood Cemetery, Los Angeles) and Forest Lawn/Glendale (Los Angeles), as well as Pere LaChaise, Montparnesse and Les Catacombs in Paris.

Descriptive captions appear under each photo. See them now by clicking this link: World of Randsome Celebrity Graves Tour.

Sex Pistols 40th Birthday Cake


Original Image Source

It seems like a gazillion of my FaceBook friends are having a Birthday today – it’s crazy! One of those friends is my great pal Randy, who knows more about cool music than any person I’ve met on the planet so far. Randy! Anyway, Randy posted this photo of a Sex Pistols Birthday Cake on his Facebook Wall and it looked so cool I was moved to conduct a little search to find the original picture, which is of the cake from the 40th Birthday celebration of a guy named Paul King (see image source link above) back in May of 2008! History! If it is your birthday today, I hope it is  awesome, and that you have a cake at least as cool as the one that inspired this post!
