We Pause To Mourn The Passing Of The Wonderful Taylor Negron

sonovista, my friends...  it is with great sadness that i share news of the passing of great comic, actor, writer, painter, and artist Taylor Negron.

those of you who have been with Schnauzer Logic since our earliest days will remember that Taylor was the special guest on our first anniversary show in January of 1977. Jann Karam made the introduction and during a brief pre-interview Taylor made it clear we could talk about anything and everything... and we did and he was fast and funny and later on, off the air, reiterated the offer of a pear tart and said i should come on by with Jann the next time I was down in LA.  i had the occasion to try and do that about 6 months later and though he wasn't available that afternoon, he spoke with me (someone he didn't really know) for about 45 minutes about life and art and love and sex... it was a master performance for an (appreciative) audience of one.

Deadline Hollywood has a very nice write up of his life.

The twitterverse is full of words of love and praise.

And if you want to (re)hear the interview we did with Taylor and Sean and Sheri, i've uploaded it to SoundCloud.

wishing you all a joyous and healthy 2015 and asking you to remember to:

show up
pay attention
tell the truth, and
don't be attached to the outcome.
