      We were early Earth Day adherents.

      And late Acid Test adherents.

      And "There Are Things Beyond Our Ken" adherents.

      There are times that I miss those times, though I still rely on many of my "experiences" day-to-day.

            Award-winning musician and songwriter Randy Scruggs has died at the age of 64.

            I know that most of you won't know who he was, but I had the rare and sublime pleasure of seeing Randy Scruggs, along with his father, Earl (and Family and Friends) perform on the grounds of Rollins College in Winter Park, FL back in the seventies. He will be missed.

              Swedish DJ Avicii passed away today at 28. Most of you don't know him but probably know the song "Levels" that they play at almost every sporting event ever.

              Hits harder for me because that is the only genre of music I listen to now in large part thanks to his introduction to mainstream music.

                    I was just listening to "The Nights" this morning to get me pumped. So weird now. The song is absolutely chilling now.

                      Swedish DJ and producer Avicii was found dead on Friday, his publicist confirmed. He was 28.

                      “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his publicist said in a statement. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

                      Avicii gained mainstream popularity and became one of the decade’s first major EDM stars in 2011 on the strength of his self-produced single “Levels.” The breakout hit sampled Etta James’s “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” and was the primary sample in rapper Flo Rida’s hit “Good Feeling.” The DJ quickly transformed into the face of EDM, performing around 300 gigs both that year and the next. “Levels” and “Sunshine,” a collaboration with French DJ David Guetta, received Grammy nominations for best dance recording.

                      In 2012, Avicii debuted remixes of Madonna’s “Girls Gone Wild” and Lenny Kravitz’s “Superlove” at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. (Speaking about working with Madonna, he told The Post in 2012: “That was really cool for me because she’s such a musical icon, and it was just an honor.”) He headlined the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago that same year and tirelessly kept his career going, his music once again blaring on mainstream radio stations with 2013’s “Wake Me Up.”

                        Former Ohio State coach Earl Bruce passed away earlier today at the age of 87. He'd been suffering from Alzheimer's and other age related health problems.

                          Wake Me Up is really good stuff. Missed him at Red Rocks in 2012 and have been waiting for him to play another show there. RIP

                              Please keep my family and the family of Dr. Stephen Grady in your prayers. They were scheduled to attend an Alumni conference at the University this past weekend but never made it. They were obsessed with everything Notre Dame and would talk and befriend anyone who they came in contact with while on campus. They were set to meet with Ara's wife and also were invited by Coach Corrigan to stop by to watch the lacrosse team practice. Father Thesing actually travelled to Harrisburg to attend Dr. Grady's funeral this morning. Although my Dad was not an alumnus, he worshipped anything Notre Dame. The University has shown the utmost respect for my family and Rudy actually sent my family a personalized video offering his condolences. Notre Dame is truly a special community.

                                Superman actress Margot Kidder has passed away at the age of 69. She was somewhat of a big deal in the late 70's. In the 90's, she was hospitalized with major mental health issues (manic depression/bipolar disorder) and was often homeless. Sad situation.

                                    Tom Wolfe, author of ‘The Right Stuff’ and ‘Bonfire Of The Vanities’ died earlier this week at the age of 88. I'm a little surprised this hasn't gotten more coverage. Wolfe was very influential as both a writer and a cultural figure. He's the one who coined the term "The Me Generation" to describe the 70's.

                                      Never read the book, but "The Right Stuff" was an amazing movie.

                                        It was. I loved that Yeager had a cameo role as the old man in Pancho's who swept up and wiped tables. The Band drummer Levon Helm played the part of Ridley, Yeager's buddy who helped him during his flights in the X-1. Lots of famous people had small roles in the film. My wife & I watched it just a couple of months ago.

                                          My first Tom Wolfe read was The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby followed by The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. This was in the late '60s while I was in high school.

                                          A few years later I decided that I'd rather be on the bus than off the bus.

                                            Tom Wolfe’s Other Legacy
                                            The writer’s prose wasn’t his only notable stylistic gesture.

                                            In the end, it may have been Tom Wolfe’s own chic that was most radical. Leave it to others to unpack the extravagant and often provocative literary legacy of the author, who died on Monday at 88. Of almost equal fascination are the contents of his closet and the cut of his clothes.

                                            It is hard now to remember that there was ever a time — in the ancient days before visual branding became a requisite for figures both public and private — when writers took it as an emblem of seriousness to dress like proles. When Mr. Wolfe first blazed onto the literary scene, many, if not most, male writers persisted in dressing like hardscrabble characters from a Clifford Odets play or possibly denizens of the cartoonist Al Capp’s mythical Outer Slobovia.
                                            Tom Wolfe, ‘New Journalist’ With Electric Style and Acid Pen, Dies at 88

                                            In his use of novelistic techniques in his nonfiction, Mr. Wolfe, beginning in the 1960s, helped create the enormously influential hybrid known as the New Journalism.

                                            But as an unabashed contrarian, he was almost as well known for his attire as his satire. He was instantly recognizable as he strolled down Madison Avenue — a tall, slender, blue-eyed, still boyish-looking man in his spotless three-piece vanilla bespoke suit, pinstriped silk shirt with a starched white high collar, bright handkerchief peeking from his breast pocket, watch on a fob, faux spats and white shoes. Once asked to describe his get-up, Mr. Wolfe replied brightly, “Neo-pretentious.”
                                            “As a titlist of flamboyance he is without peer in the Western world,” Joseph Epstein wrote in the The New Republic. “His prose style is normally shotgun baroque, sometimes edging over into machine-gun rococo, as in his article on Las Vegas which begins by repeating the word ‘hernia’ 57 times.”

                                            William F. Buckley Jr., writing in National Review, put it more simply: “He is probably the most skillful writer in America — I mean by that he can do more things with words than anyone else.”

                                                      I could see Route 66 (60-64), because it wasn't on that long and I was pretty young, but The Fugitive? Harrison Ford wouldn't have been running from the law in 1993 if it weren't for the series.

At 6'6" and built like an NFL defensive end, he often played the gentle giant, rough & tough but good-hearted cowboy, or a soldier. Starred in his own very popular Western TV series in the 50's & 60's, but was probably better known to later audiences for his role in The Dirty Dozen. By all accounts one of the all-around good guys in Hollywood during his era.

                                                                    When I took my official visit to Miami, Mallory and his NIU Huskies shut out the Redskins, a couple of years later I went with some friends to Columbus when his Hoosier squad blew out a top 10 Buckeye squad, the following year, they blew em again the following year in Bloomington.

                                                                    Was fortunate to see him speak at a few clinics, great speaker.

                                                                    Coach Mallory was 82.

                                                                                              Awareness and prevention is everything. We cannot back down for a second and think that someone has "gotten past it".
                                                                                              Every word of this... prob the least surprising celebrity suicide I've seen... but yeah...
                                                                                              This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

                                                                                                    "We are so sad to learn that Eunice Gayson, our very first 'Bond girl' who played Sylvia Trench in DR. NO and FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE has passed away," producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement. "Our sincere thoughts are with her family."

                                                                                                    The British actress passed away Friday, according to her Twitter page, which called her an "amazing lady who left a lasting impression on everyone she met. She will be very much missed."

                                                                                                    It's unclear how Gayson died.

                                                                                                    Connery first uttered the iconic introduction, "Bond, James Bond," to Gayson's character in that movie, according to the BBC.
