Did you hear the news that actor Michael Clarke Duncan passed away at age 54? He was battling complications from his heart attack in July and never seemed to recover. Gotta say, I'll miss his crazy smile and deep voice! Did you have a favorite of his movies? Mine is above!
PS If you ever go to a Taylor concert DO NOT make your daughter dress up like this and sing for money! Forgot about this picture from the Country Music Fest I went to a couple of years back!
