Phil Spector convicted of second degree murder

April 13, 2009

After 6 years, Phil Spector was convicted of second degree murder.

The 2003 shooting death of Lana Clarkson in his Alhambra, California home led to his being charged with murder in the second degree. His first trial ended in a mistrial.

Harvey Phillip Spector (born December 26, 1940) is an American record producer and songwriter whose fame reached its height in the 1960s.

The originator of the "Wall of Sound" production technique, Spector was a pioneer of the 1960s' girl group sound and clocked in over twenty-five Top 40 hits between 1960 and 1965. In later years he worked with such artists as Ike and Tina Turner, John Lennon, George Harrison and the Ramones with similar success, including production work on the Academy Award winning Let It Be and Grammy Award winning Concert for Bangladesh soundtracks. In 1989, Spector was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a non-performer.

Heath Ledger Wins Oscar

Heath Ledger won an Oscar for best supporting role at Dark Knight. 

I hate to say this, but... the only reason Heath Ledger won an Oscar is because he's dead. 

After a huge media hype, general public got on the "Best Acting of the Century" bandwagon.  But the fact is that the movie was not exactly a masterpiece.  It was just another Sci-Fi. 

It's like listening to a handicap stand up comedian.  You cannot boo him off because he's a handicap. We always give them sympathy applause. 

I believe Heath just won a sympathy Oscar.

Zantzinger, a Killer from Bob Dylan's song died 69

William Zantzinger died on January 3, 2009 at the age of 69 

"The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" is a topical song by Bob Dylan. Recorded on 23 October 1963, the song was released on Dylan's 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changin' and gives a generally factual account of the killing of 51-year-old barmaid Hattie Carroll by the wealthy young tobacco farmer from Charles County, William Devereux "Billy" Zantzinger (whom the song calls "William Zanzinger"), and his subsequent sentence to six months in a county jail. Dylan's song, however, sentenced Zantzinger to lifelong infamy.

The lyrics are a commentary on the racism of the 1960s, which valued a black woman's life so lightly. At the time, Charles County was still strictly segregated by race in public facilities such as restaurants, churches, theaters, doctor's offices, buses, and the county fair. The schools of Charles County were not integrated until 1967, four years after Hattie Carroll was killed.
