A Legend Dies, But His Work Lives On

Joseph Barbera died today of natural causes at 12:15pm at his home in Studio City. He was 95.

I have had the privelege of working at the same building as he did for about 5 years. (yes, he did still come into work!) I didn't have a lot of contact with him, but the handful of times I did speak with him, I'll always remember.

We are still producing spin-off shows based on the characters he created many decades ago. This year's variety is called "Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue".

GO HERE to view a post I wrote about him in April.

My Trip To Outer Space

I have nothing new to report about the film industry right now, so I thought I'd treat you to some photos from a recent family vacation.

The view over Africa was spectacular.

Accomodations were provided by the Mir Luxury Resort.

We stopped off at a nearby moon. (light-side)

Even though there is just one set of footprints in the moon-sand, I know He's carrying me.

Me, going out to take some more pics.
