pow ! zap !!
adam west is no more
wholly dead, batman !
and while i am being irreverent about the loss, i am rather touched by his death more than i would have initially thought
a bit like prince, only less musically inclined, these are people who represent the background scenery and music of my life, and each one of them going not only rubs my own mortality with an abrasive intensity, but they are memes from an age when memes didn't even have a name
that such a completely high camp farce is still instantly known by anyone of "a certain vintage" is a ticket to immortality for a man who by all accounts was a really nice guy, and well loved
