Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"Ric Ocasek, a co-founder and lead singer of the new wave band The Cars, was found dead in New York City on Sunday, authorities said. Ocasek was 75.

The New York Police Department said his body was found in a Manhattan townhouse on Sunday afternoon. Ocasek, who was unconscious and unresponsive, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

Ocasek's cause of death wasn’t immediately clear, but police said no criminality was suspected." (More)

Man, his music was like life's soundtrack growing up in the 70s and 80s. I bet I didn't go a week without hearing a Cars song my entire adolescent life.

Yep. They're right up there w/ Rush, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, R.E.O. as my high school life soundtrack.

On that note, I'm so looking forward to this year's Stranger Things house at this year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. At the end there's a huge Mind Flayer puppet that takes like three people to operate. It's in the Scoops Ahoy shop.
