What happens when you die? 
The people who know the answer to that are dead,
 and they’re not telling us anything.
 This skit from Chris and Jack takes a look at what may be in store 
for this one guy when he buys the farm. 
It’s a little reminiscent of the classic scene of St. Peter meeting you 
at the Pearly Gates to announce your final disposition.
 Except it’s not like that at all.



They are out there!!


The Present
A Beautiful Short Story

After a very successful festival circuit, 
running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards,
 the creators of this magnificent short film 
decided that it’s finally time to share ‘The Present’
 with the rest of the world. 
’The Present’ is a thesis short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects 
and Digital Post production at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg
 in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

The Story of Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Prepare to be amazed as you watch Sister Rosetta Tharpe
 as she performs “Didn’t It Rain” in Manchester, England in 1964.
 Sister Rosetta Tharpe is often referred to as
 “The Godmother of Rock and Roll” or “The Original Soul Sister”
. Her songs were an influence on notable singers like 
Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis,
 and even Elvis Presley.

 Rock On Sister.

Often the subject of a death hoax, actor Abe Vigoda died  January 26, 2016
 at the age of 94. 
Vigoda was known for a number of roles, 
especially his portrayals of Sal Tessio in the Francis Ford Coppola film The Godfather,
 and for his portrayal of Detective Sgt. Phil Fish 
on the television sitcom series Barney Miller from 1975 to 1977
 and its spinoff show Fishin 1978, both on ABC.
Vigoda was reported to have died in both 1982 and 1987
 and since has been the subject of many jokes in that regard. 
 He had a good sense of humor about the rumors.
He had been on hospice care recently until his death earlier today 
at his daughter’s home in New Jersey.

Fish is now sleeping with the fishes.
