I'm just glad to be able to have spent "one night in Vinnie's clubhouse". That place was ---smurfing--- amazing.

Note the last line.  Rick and Morty is alive an well.  Pretty sure to be fired you have to actually do something to someone besides make a gross video, especially with an anti-establishment channel like adult swim.

Not sure you can call him a celebrity, but he deserves some recognition despite whatever you think about him.

I've got a friend who is a few years younger than me and we watched it. It really creeped her out. After she went to bed, in the middle of the night... I played dueling banjos on my mandolin from across the house. After a few minutes she just screamed "NOT FUNNY" but I bet she was hiding under a blanket.

I'm pretty sure Marvel will come up with some way to continue the tradition, even if the cameos are like Hitchcock in Lifeboat.

This one bothers me, but then again he was 95.  I'm surprised he was alive and viable as long as he did.

Last night I was looking at something to do with Marvel and was reminded of an article in the last two or three weeks about issues with his estate and elderly abuse. I thought to look in on him, but forgot.....

Yep, stuff coming out recently wasn't good.  I've read online many times that lots of cameos have been filmed in advance and I've wondered if we haven't already been getting those the last few years.

Confirmed that they already shot the one for Avengers 4. (May 3, 2019)

Article didn't mention if they had also filmed an appearance for Captain Marvel (March 18, 2019), but it seems likely.   :dunno

That's great. I bet the company execs loved that many of the actors, some of them on the high end of the pay scale, get less time.
