    RIP Adam West

    Adam West passed away today at the age of 88. Can't imagine anyone over the age of, say, 35 or 40, not knowing who this iconic individual was. He had Leukemia.

    He and Burt Ward paired up once again to do voice overs of an animated version of the dynamic duo recently. Check it out if you haven't seen it. It's worth a look.

    Well shoot...he was slated to appear at the Vegas Comic Con later this month.

    What a character he was.

    I think that his best attribute was that he never took himself too seriously. He was willing to make fun of himself. His appearance on Big Bang Theory as himself was great.

    I loved that BBT episode.

    I was surprised when my 15 year old was bummed to hear he died. "Do you even know who Adam West is??" after he asked me if I had heard he died. "Well, yeah! He's Batman!"

    He had some chuckle worthy moments playing "himself" on Family Guy as well.

    Absurd irony defined: necromancy to an RIP thread.

    Adam would have loved that.
