Dude, man, dude,



I also heard that if you inhale 4 Isa whipped cream chargers you know all the answers to every question in the universe for 10 seconds.

RIP little dude, you lived a full life it seems .

Re: "ding dong, the witch is dead"

What a long legacy...didn't the first actually die during shooting (and is visible in certain versions).

On that note, the Dark Side of Oz it my chick flick version of a comfort movie.

My ex still calls "Great Gig in the Sky", the "tornado song" :P

Re: "ding dong, the witch is dead"

I like this line from the obituary:

Quote:
He was paid $50 a week for the movie and told friends that Garland's dog in the movie, "Toto," made more money.
Quite.

Sold by his father aged 9, no trauma for future life in the making there then...?
