    Chuck Barris. RIP

    It was a different world when Chuck had his run.

    RIP Chuck Barris.

    I thought the CIA story was just for a joke but back then it was crazy enough to be true.

    I remember the Gong Show with Chuck and Juicy Jaye P. Morgan. He was a hoot and I always thought he looked a bit stoned. RIP.

    Well, if wasn't stoned, everyone watching the Gong Show was.

    Assassin?

    Heck no; he was just a CIA Intelligence operative who managed the CIA assassins.
    His claiming to be one of the assassins was just crazy talk.

    I used to watch that show.
    I think it's safe to say that not everybody who watched the show was stoned.
    Not every time they watched it.
    Or at least maybe not when they first tuned it in.

    On second thought; you're probably right, never mind.

    RIP; Chuck.

    He was at the NARM convention back in 2003 in Orlando, I got to meet him briefly. He didn't look long for the world even back then. RIP

    Still when I hear some awful song I feel like I want to gong it and sometimes I make the motion and get stared at.
