Harry Reems, R.I.P.

From The Huffington Post --

Legendary porn star Harry Reems has died at the age of 65, report the New York Daily News.

The adult actor, who starred in 1972's "Deep Throat," died on March 19 after battling pancreatic cancer.

Reems' friend Don Schenk first reported news of the porn actor's passing, revealing that Reems, whose real name was Herbert Streicher, began to suffer health problems due to peripheral neuropathy and emphysema a few years ago, and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this past summer.

Despite months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, the cancer continued to grow. According to Schenk, Reems entered a VA Hospital on March 5, suffering from liver failure, and later kidney failure as his body began to shut down. Reems was in a coma for four days before he died on Tuesday afternoon.

Reems initially got into the porn industry after he found himself too broke to afford his $38.37/month New York apartment, and would go on to perform in more than 100 hardcore movies, he revealed in a New York magazine interview in 2005.

According to Us Weekly, Reems was arrested in 1974 for conspiracy to distribute obscenity across state lines, and is the only actor to date to be convicted of obscenity charges, though it was later overturned.

Schenk wrote that Reems lived a hard life, finding himself homeless and suffering from alcoholism, until he became sober in 1989, and found a new career selling real estate.

"Harry went from living a bizarre lifestyle, though a 180 degree almost miraculous change to find a Higher Power he called God, and become a truly nice guy who cared for others, and helped a lot of people in Park City, UT," Schenk wrote.

St. Patrick's Day T-Shirt

Top 'o the morning to ya!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe St. Paddy's Day! I don't have anything planned to celebrate the holiday. Just doing laundry and cleaning the house. I'm a pretty boring person. :)

Goodwill Finds

I went to my local Goodwill on friday and this is what I came home with:

Two giant blow mold pumpkins for $2.00 each. They are both made by Empire Plastics. I don't see a date on them, but the one with the black stem looks older.

 I also bought this paperback book for 35¢. Faster than a Speeding Bullet: An Informal History and Quiz of Radio's Golden Age. It was released by Playboy Paperbacks in 1980.

Not too shabby for less than five bucks!

Autumn Eats Near The End Of Winter

Back in October I posted some reviews of seasonal food called "Autumn Eats". One of the things I looked for, but never found, were Pumpkin Pie Spice Pringles. Well, I finally found them at Big Lots for $1.00 a can. Better late than never. I must say I was kind of apprehensive about pumpkin flavored potato chips. But, they were really good. I might have to go back and pick up a couple more cans.

Till Death Do Us Part

My niece and her fiance got married this weekend. The wedding was originally going to be in October with a Halloween theme, but they moved it up. Since they already had skull decorations picked out, that's what they went with. The theme for the wedding was "Till Death Do Us Part" and the colors were black and red.

I didn't make it to the wedding, but i went to the reception. It was really nice and a good time was had by all. When they introduced the families of the bride and groom, the DJs played the Addams Family theme. Here's a few photos --

The wedding cake.

Every table had one of these tall vases with skull garland wrapped around them and giant black and red feathers.

These little black boxes with a plastic skull ring tied to them and filled with candy were at every seat.

I saw a couple of kids going from table to table collecting the skull rings.
