Max von Sydow played "Ming the Merciless"?

I just wrote a eulogy for Coburn in the NY Times film forum. I'm too lazy to re-write now. Maybe later.

James Coburn epitomized the word "cool".

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - James Coburn, who played tough-guy roles in such
films as ``Our Man Flint'' and ``The Magnificent Seven,'' and who won an
Academy Award with his portrait of a dissolute father in ``Affliction,'' died
Monday. He was 74.

Coburn died of a heart attack at home while listening to music with his wife,
said his manager, Hillard Elkins.

Coburn won his best supporting actor Oscar for the 1998 film after overcoming a
10-year struggle with arthritis that left one hand crippled.

Born in Laurel, Neb., on Aug. 31, 1928, Coburn studied acting in Los Angeles
and with Stella Adler in New York

He appeared on stage in New York and in such dramatic television series as
``Studio One'' and ``General Electric Theatre'' in the 1950s.

He made his movie debut in ``Ride Lonesome'' in 1959 and gained the public's
notice a year later when he played the knife-throwing Britt in ``The
Magnificent Seven.''

Although he had few lines compared with his other macho actor co-stars, film
historian Leonard Maltin noted Coburn's mere screen presence grabbed the
public's attention

Did he die? I haven't seen anything on him, but then, I haven't watched a whole lot of tv lately.

I was in a pet shop in New York City looking
to buy a dog. I was holding a Maltese Terrier in my arms. A man slides up next to me and says "thats the dog for you". The man was Richard Harris. I bought the terrier.

I am on vacation this week. Whilst down the dwindling stairs and in the basement of delerium, I play hockey on my shiny black XBOX. Since I am not in an absinthe mood, I am drinking Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde. I haven't perused the board in some time, so I thought I might have a drag. Your chat is beyond me since I have walked into the middle of an intensely wierd conversation. It's all weird here when I think about it (and since I am in a hockey mood, pronounce 'about' as 'aboot').
So I need another beer. I go up the rickety steps one by one. Stomp and stomp my legs lift and lift. I get my beer.
I flip through the movie channels and what do I see!?! Before Night Falls is on! That is probably the most beautiful bio pic I have ever seen! But alas! it is fini.
I have read Singing from the Well and mean to finish The Pentagonia befoere too long but havent the time as of yet.

I think Pete has possibly gotten wicked on me...I am rambling. And maybe in the wrong forum.
