R.I.P. Captain Spaulding

Captain Spaulding, aka Sid Haig, is dead.

Fresno-born horror film acting icon Sid Haig passed away over the weekend.

Born in Fresno Sidney Eddie Mosesian in July, 1939, he broke into acting in the 60’s and continued his career for decades. His most famous recent rolls included Captain Spaulding in both “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects.”

His wife, Susan Oberg shared the news of Haig’s passing in this Instagram post:

On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next. He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us. We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected.

Sidney Eddie Mosesian
7/14/39 – 9/21/19
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Friend.
Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.

I was surprised to learn that he was 80 years old. No word yet on whether he will receive a traditional clown burial (Clowns put the “fun” in “funeral.”)

Here are my two favorite Captain Spaulding clips:

      Yep, similar level of crazy. He was just crazy on his own I assume. This girl was actually made this crazy on purpose.

    • Somebody says:

      Wow, spooky. It is the same face. I can’t believe you remembered that picture and face, good memory, awesome comparison.

    • swanspirit says:

      When I worked on a locked adolescent psychiatric unit, that face was the face of someone getting ready to assault someone, or act out in some violent manner; throwing furniture, blockading themselves in a room, etc etc.
      It called for an immediate intervention of some kind. A 1to 1 session with a staff person to try and de-escalate them. Maybe some time in an unlocked quiet room, to reduce outside stimulation, placement on increased supervision, like q10 minute checks, or even arm’s length supervision.
      I would be very concerned for that young woman’s safety. She looks like she is ready to explode, or implode. Kids who are overly focused on ” world events” are really sending messages about themselves.

    Condolences to The Klown on The Capt. Clown. Also one of my husband’s favorite characters.

    In completely unsurprising news, Twitter is @jack-ing with it’s verification again. Here’s the proof. Retweet if you’re outraged about this and/or the way Twitter does business. What a joke.

    I miss this guy. Carlin’s rant on environmentalists about 27 years ago 😀

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Michael Crichton, author of Andromeda Strain, Coma, Jurassic Park (and an M.D.) was also onto the crap of the out of control environmentalists and other “earth mother” scammers.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think what we have today is the modern version of the Doomsday cult (which Carlin was mocking). I remember as a kid those shaggy guys on street corners with their World is coming to an end signs. Fortunately I was raised in a normal family who simple told me it was bullshit. 🙂

        The right has it’s own version of climate whackos. The Preppers? Have you ever seen the movie “2012” ? Came out in 2009 based on the Mayan Calendar’s prediction the world was ending in 2012. Even that was because of the super volcano in Yellowstone finally blowing, not man made garbage. Even the science isn’t settled on that one, especially how many people will die if she blows. We seem pretty safe on the East Coast.


        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Does make you think of all those cults like Heaven’s Gate. I have always thought the extremists at both ends of the spectrum bend the curve so that they meet up. But what I have noticed is more Ds who used to be moderate have been moving further and further off the edge while more R’s have pulled back and said – nope that crap is way to far off the beam we are going to go mingle with some more rational folks.

    this is a good thread, and bears out my impression that Greta is a lot like Sheldon Coopet, minus the charm, amiability, and understanding of science.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That was good, thanks. Of course the usual trolls showed up in that thread to tell him to shut up. 😉

    • Woke Lola says:

      That was excellent, VM. Thank you. Promoted.

      • lateblum says:

        How do you promote a thread? I was thoroughly glued to this thread last night. I stayed there through nearly every comment to each of 18? tweets. Had some back and forth with a couple of people there and the author later dm’d me with some nice words. I’d love for everyone to read the thread. Perhaps it would help or promote some understanding. At least fewer people might be so harsh with their comments to and about Ms. Thunberg. Her parents, however, deserve to be brought before a tribunal.

        • Mothy67 says:

          I read quite a bit of it last night too. Was not very informed about aspergers. Think I understand a few kids better now. Where as before I think I was a bit dismissive. Never mean. More like uh-oh that one.

  20. Angie says:

    He’s outdone himself today.

      • lyn says:

      • votermom says:

        I wonder if Greta meant to be that ragey at the UN or if Trump sailing past and ruining her entrance triggered a tantrum

        It was not a good look

        • Mothy67 says:

          Gonna go with the latter.
          Did you catch that 3 dead, 5 hospitalized drug story here? Messed up. A kilo of what they thought was coke. A KILO!!!!! After hours party in an upscale building. The lessee had rented it out for 500 a night. They took one bump off a knife and started to die. ( I guess to taste before buying) One guy found dead in the elevator, another dying on the street out front. Two dead inside apartment. I assume 4 others in critical. A frigging kilo — 25,000 dollars in blow which would have been cut up and sold perhaps resulting in more deaths. These were not college kids partying. Ages ranged from 30’s to 40’s and it seems only the guy with the goods was local. Scary to be a kid today. One time trying something and boom life over.

        • lateblum says:

          Given all the brainwashing she has experienced in her young life, I imagine she felt more than a little threatened. I feel so sorry for this girl. She may never outgrow the bs she has had been force fed. Her future does not look bright to me.
          She needs to get away from the parents who have betrayed her and the handlers who are manipulating her.

          • swanspirit says:

            Right. Listen to what she is saying, before she gets to the climate gibberish.
            I SHOULDN’T BE UP HERE
            HOW DARE YOU.
            When kids are overly focused on external issues, they are usually actually sending messages about themselves. Kids aren’t usually doing abstract thought, until late teens.
            She is screaming for help, but doesn’t even know it. She has, thanks to her parents and billionaire backers, conflated fixing a fake climate crisis, with being ok, and being healthy.

          • lateblum says:

            You noticed that, too! I want to know WHO wrote her speech and WHY they are using this particular child. She has so many special needs that this is nothing short of child abuse by her parents and the people with the big money. She should have a therapist and should be in a school for special needs kids instead of yachting about the world to be a mouthpiece for malignant people.

          • taw46 says:

            The thing is, she IS registered in a school for kids with special needs. But Mom and Dad apparently value her traveling the world for fame (and money) more than they do having Greta get the help she needs.

          • lateblum says:

            Yes, she is registered, but she isn’t there. And that is where she should be. What a singularly selfish thing for her parents to do to their daughter.

  21. Myiq2xu™ says:

  22. Dora says:

    Oh good! I’m happy about the time. I have an appointment this afternoon and thought I’d have to miss the speech.

    I know I could have caught it on you tube later, but it’s much more fun watching it live.

    • Somebody says:

      Well China isn’t part of the agreement from 30 years ago, so technically no grounds to sue. As if the lawsuit has a snowballs chance in hell 🙄 More platitudes, another soapbox for the little brat 🙄

      I’m curious if she’s considered the fact that if her dire predictions are true, Sweden will become a tropical paradise with food aplenty. So what’s her beef?

      If the earth warmed to that degree, dear Greta would be the first to advocate mass starvation for the rest of the world, no doubt. I can see her amongst the crops screaming MINE!

  23. DeniseVB says:

    Here’s the movie trailer for “2012”. It highlights the best of the special effects, which were awesome on the big screen, even if the goofy storyline was boring, worth it.

    FFS Kamala, you are pathetic. Just slap this kid and tell her to snap out of it…….

    • swanspirit says:

      Nothing like being reassured by the person feeding your fears, and most likely to get you killed with their policies.

      • DeniseVB says:

        “Vote for me and you won’t die” LOL !

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, what will happen to her once Kamala is out of the picture? Will she have a breakdown? Kamala doesn’t care.

          • DeniseVB says:

            The one thing I took away from supporting John Edwards, he was so brutally honest too. He taught us that politicians always know where the cameras are and they are taught to react to that camera, focus on the sound byte, not the person you may be interacting with…..it really is making sense now after all these years.

            In contrast, our PTrump doesn’t give a flying f**k about cameras, they’ve been in his face for over 40 years. 😀

    • elliesmom says:

      A teenager can reduce his chance of dying young by surrendering his cell phone, never drinking alcohol, doing drugs. or driving or getting into a car with another teen driver by a much larger margin than the banning of a semi-automatic rifle would ever do. I ask them to do all of those things, and after that, we can talk about gun control. Do the easy things first. It’s much easier to control one’s own behavior than someone else’s. I never get any takers.

    • Mothy67 says:

      How cold does it get at night in L.A. during the winters? We have homelessness here, but the weather prevents it from being a transient destination. Are the mentally ill able to get disability? A tent and a sleeping must run a few hundred. Has to be so dangerous for the most vulnerable.

      • jeffhas says:

        Right now it’s 60 degrees at night in L.A.area. Will get down to 50 in a month or so… 40 in Jan/Feb… probably as low as it will go.

        Tents are cheap – 2-3 person tent at Walmart for $25 or less…. sleeping bag for $10-15 at the low end. Do-gooders will give these to homeless, or you can panhandle that in a few hours.

        It’s mostly drug addiction, and mental illness caused by drug addiction.

        It’s too bad the pharmaceutical companies couldn’t work on a vaccine for addiction, or an addiction or opiate blocker…. guess that would dry up the revenue stream…. in another century, the government might get involved in research, studies and trials to come up with a vaccine, blocker, permanent treatment, etc…. but there are too many lobbyists making sure the revenue stream continues.

        If you’re addicted it’s pretty hopeless, sure, you can go to rehab if you have insurance… but the Malibu rehabs here are rife with pushers to supply the recovering addicts while in care or when they walk out… and if you have no insurance, no rehab will touch you except the rundown outpatient rehabs that again, have pushers all over to keep the recovering from recovering… and if it’s opiate related you could go to the Methadone clinic – there is a surprisingly nice clinic in my city, very ‘medical clinic’ – like…. but apparently they are strict about being paid on time or you lose their services… or you go on Medical to get their services…. and of course it is filled with people who know exactly where to find whatever illegal drug you need if you want to ‘fall off the wagon’

        It really is the modern day plaque of our time, and all the current solutions are really businesses that need to profit.

  28. DeniseVB says:

    There’s outreach, but a lot of the homeless refuse it. Liberal policies seem to enable that. Here’s a good Stossel report kinda addressing that.

    • jeffhas says:

      Accepting outreach means you’re ready to get off your addiction… and the drugs these days are so powerful, they are about as important as life itself to the addicted.

      If there was an ‘addiction vaccine’ that would end the addiction forever, most addicted people would fight like hell not to take it.

      • Mothy67 says:

        There is naltrexone, but injections cost about 1300 a month and a user has to be clean for some time so there is detox and rehab costs. It blocks the effects. It can be taken in pill form, but since it’s physical and psychological how many heroin addicts will just skip the pill. Can’t do that if you get a monthly injection. It might be cheaper in the long run though
        I couldn’t recall the name so I tried to do a search — God help any family member trying to get help for someone. It was ad after ad after ad. Even the ones that did say ad were ads. Big business.

          • jeffhas says:

            I’ve heard of Naltroxene, but for the homeless, that is like the probability of flying private… or winning the lottery….

            They put you in a shelter, where everyone around you has an addiction problem…. then if you make it that far and you’re still around, you can get to a halfway house where hopefully you can stay out of trouble long enough to find a purpose – oh yeah, and everyone around you is tempting you with whatever drug of choice is your personal poison.

            Then from there… job training for a terrible job at the goodwill store then maybe work your way up to the dollar store…. No wonder people just fall back to the addiction… it seems so hopeless in this Instagram world.

            $1300 a month after $15,000 for rehab.

            Big business indeed.

            …. and that right there is the problem.

            What are the odds that the attny’s general settle for BAZILLIONS from the opiate Manufacturer’s and the settlement goes to setup free (nice) rehabs and free Naltrexone for anyone who is addicted regardless of status or lack thereof and everyone in between, no questions asked???

            All the time and money spent researching and developing OxyContin, and no counterbalancing research and development for the Vaccine to get people off it. I mean you killed millions, all you have to do is pay to help what’s left of the survivors.

            Maybe just use it to house homeless and addicted people so they are off the street and we can’t see them anymore…?

            Sorry, I live in L.A., and see these tent cities every day in almost every city. I actually don’t mind, it’s a reminder of what not to do, but the solutions being mentioned by our betters sound like more opportunities for grants and gov’t $$ so the dog can chase it’s $$ tail.

            You want to solve the homeless problem? Solve the addiction problem – like it’s a man-on-the-moon-mission and necessity.

            Anything less is just a bunch of hooey.

          • Mothy67 says:

            I completely agree with everything you say. Some people might need to live in permanent long term clean/sober housing. It has to be cheaper than prison. Perhaps a step system to make sure the housemates have serious clean time. I know they already have the halfway, three quarter stuff, but it’s mostly a scam. Something actually done with serious oversight.
            Also dental care. How do you enter, re-enter the workforce with crackhead teeth?
            Pittsburgh has a government sponsored pilot program, but it does very little other than daily outpatient. M-F. I would think the weekends would be more important. I think it’s mostly NA. Tens of millions of dollars on same old same old.

        • Somebody says:

          Science has been delving into how to reset the brain when it comes to addiction. DHEA is being used with fairly good success to reset the brain and take away the “trigger” so to speak. GABA and NMDA are being studied in a similar fashion. It’s being studied mostly with heroin addicts, but cocaine and nicotine addiction too.

          Scientists at least have some basic understanding of the addictive pathway. I imagine in the not to distant future there may be some real breakthroughs with figuring out how to turn off addiction. Nothing will ever be 100%.

          • jeffhas says:

            That is good news for sure!

            That would really help our homeless population.

            I really hope they take the Purdue and others settlements and actually ‘DO’ something, but I am ever cynical.

  29. Dora says:

    Can’t insult little Greta.

    • dm says:

      Sounds to me like she technically is, between the Aspergers, depression and anxiety. I know a few folks who suffer from those issues and they regularly see a psychiatrist and/or therapist.
