Sad news for those who love old school WWF wresting and many b-movies.  "Rowdy" Roddy Piper (real name Roddy Toombs) dead at 61 from a heart attack.  

Many know him from classic movies like They Live and Hell comes to Frogtown.  He will be missed.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

That's a bummer, he always seemed like a really nice guy.  One of my favorite and most entertaining wrestlers from way back in the day.  RIP Rowdy.

I saw Hell Comes to Frogtown recently, for some reason I had never seen it over the years. I thought it was great I gave it a 5/5.

Of course, They Live is on another level. Many of us carry the ideas from this movie in our lives and its a testament to it's courage that there are very very few movies like it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
