Farewell Elmer Bernstein

Brilliant and famously liberal film composer ("Ten Commandments" "The Magnificent Seven" "Thoroughly Modern Millie" "Walk on the Wild Side") Elmer Bernstein died yesterday at age 82. He'll no doubt report to his spot on the Left side of God right after a quick trip to Hell to kick Senator McCarthy in the balls.

Farewell Elmer Bernstein, James Horner will have to find someone else to rip off.

Another great composer was lost last week, and we failed to mention it: the inimitable Julia Child, composer of such masterpieces as "The French Chef" and "Subject of Dan Aykroyd's Second Greatest SNL Sketch Impersonation."
We'll miss you, Julia. Cook up something tasty for Elmer in heaven. And go heavy on the heavy cream.
