  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

RIP Rip.

I didn't even realize he was (previously) still alive.

Robert Forster has passed away. That makes two people who passed away right after I watched Jackie Brown again (Sid Haig being the other).

Yeah, I was thinking about him recently, perhaps because of the Jackie Brown mention..... I saw that movie only a few/several months ago, the only Tarantino movie I much care for, and was thinking he looked rough in '97. Smoking all over his face. Still, he made close to 80, though I don't know his faculty status in the last ten years....oh ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---, he had brain cancer......well. Anyways, not until I saw it again a couple/few years ago, I realized I knew him from 1980's Alligator (seen on TV in '81/2). I liked him.

He also just had a great role in El Camino, the new Breaking Bad movie on Netflix.

@Ginsu Victim: yes I found that out after reading an obituary, and watched the proffered clip. He seemed cogent. He was a good character actor. Emotional expression in the eyes conveys the heart of things, and he didn't have that. He wasn't 'big'. Like Nicholas Cage. Systemically dead-pan voice and no eye expression. Blech. I think his main fans are latter-day anime folks, for whom the blank stare is the be all/end all.....

PS: wasn't interested in Breaking Bad.

I always liked him in everything I saw him in.

"You better put some water on that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---, boy" was a go to quote for years anytime someone bitched about free food.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

He was a very funny man.  Me and my friends would always come out of the bathroom and tell each other not to go in for about 35-45 minutes.

I guess that means we'll never get another season of the Boondocks.   :'(
