As reported in the Obitiuaries section of this morning's LA Times, the actor Paul Benedict was found dead at his home on Martha's Vineyard. Benedict was best known to most as the actor who played the eccentric English neighbor Harry Bentley on the televiison sitcom The Jeffersons but he was also known for his small role in the movie This Is Spinal Tap as the "twisted old fruit" hotel desk clerk. See clip below. 

Unlike the neighbor character he played in the TV series, the actor  was not English. Benedict was 70 years of age. The cause of his death is still under investigation according to his brother, reports the LA Times.

I don't really know what happened to November, but all of a sudden I woke up and it was Thanksgiving and now it is December. I sincerely apologize for not updating this blog in the last couple of weeks. I had that cold that everyone seemed to get and there really has not been a whole lot out in the last few weeks of November. So I am combining a couple of street dates of new releases here. Way back on 11/18 we had that big R & B album that I know you were waiting for by Beyonce. Well, I know I was waiting for it. Destiny's Child and Beyonce have always been one of my guilty pleasures that I don't really feel that guilty about. Ibeyonce still don't think

that solo Beyonce has topped the brilliance that was Destiny's Child, but she has put out some good songs over the years. It really was the Saturday Night Live skit a couple of weeks ago that made me fall in love with the new album. They spoofed a video shoot for the single "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)." The new album is called I Am..Sasha Fierce. She made the album a double album even though it really is the length of a normal album. She just wanted one side of the CD the be the slow ballady album and the other the dancey Beyonce album. It is her idea of a concept album. Most people probably like to go out dancing to Beyonce or maybe drive around in their car. I just really like to do the dishes and fold the laundry to Beyonce. It works for me.

DAITO MANABE IS LITERALLY FEELING THE MUSIC

Posted by Billyjam, December 4, 2008 09:21am | Post a Comment

"I'm not feeling that music," are words that you probably won't hear uttered by Japan's experimental sound artist Daito Manabe in reference to the music he composed and is literally feeling in his ongoing electric stimulus to the face project. Above is part three, posted on YouTube, in the intriguing series by the Tokyo based artist/designer/programmer who programmed and composed with support on the stimulus device from Masaki Teruoka and Katsuhiko Harada and from Taeji Sawai with some of the sound. Click here to see videos of Daito's other interactive body/music stimulus experiments, including his cool electric sensor which is similar to what some other artists, including Amsterdam based sound artist EboMan, were doing several years back.
