RIP.

But when a mime dies, should it be "A moment of sound"

That dewd was around forever. I remember watching him in the mid 1960's when I was a small lad.

RIP

He was 84, and he looked like death for the at least 10 of his final years, may he rest in peace.
I am actually suprised he was so old, that means he was around 60 when I saw him back in the early 80's. I guess it's hard to see age when your face is painted white.
To me, he is without a doubt the best mime that ever lived.

Do you have a top five? lol. Mime? Can you imagine that as a career? Maybe I'm just not artistic enough but what a waste of an existence.

LOL...nope.
Most people have a waste of an existance, but he made people smile and entertained people, which to me doesn't make it a waste.
Most people do whatever it takes to make money, whether that's digging ditches, or being Dilbert (work in cubicles doing monotonous, meaningless work), at least the mimes try to entertain.

Re: A moment of silence...

Wait a minute, what about guys like Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd. Were they not mimes also? Mime is just acting with gestures and facial expressions. Those three did it as well as anyone

I guess "waste of an existence" is a little strong... It's just so far outside what I personally consider a career. But then again, I'm from the land of the Amish, we're pretty plain folk out here. And I think Chaplin and other silent movie type figures are a different category. They didn't have an alternative because of technological limits.

Re: A moment of silence...

I remember seeing this guy on tv and stuff. Cool cat, I never knew much about him but I guess he touched me in a way.

May God guide him to a better place.
