    R.I.P. Arleen Sorkin

    The OG Harley Quinn has passed at 67. I know that Batman: The Animated Series was an integral part of a lot of tyrants' childhoods, never mind that this was one of the very few comic icons that started outside the medium, thanks in part to Sorkin's performance, I'm sure.

    R.I.P. Sinead O'Connor

    Sinead O'Connor has passed at 56. I was never a huge fan, but I listened to I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got a couple of years ago and her voice and style were one of a kind. Plus let's always remember her tearing up the photo of the Pope on SNL. Punk s fuck. Edit: She was a real one, no doubt...

    R.I.P. Lance Reddick

    One of the great character actors has passed away at age 60. I'm mostly familiar with him from Lost and Horizon Zero Dawn, but he's popped up in other stuff I've seen and his presence in anything elevated it.
  4. ArugulaZ

    Richard Belzer died. The infinite possible worlds of the universe shudder in fear.

    Richard Belzer is best known as the acerbic Detective Munch on Law and Order, but the character debuted in an entirely different show, Homicide: Life on the Street, and has appeared as Munch in more continuities than any other fictional character on television. He didn't just invent crossovers...

    RIP Ichiro "Aniki" Mizuki

    Singer Ichiro Mizuki Passes Away at 74 This is going to be a "niche interest" obituary, as most people probably will not recognize that name. But anyone who watched giant robot anime in the 60s and 70s, or Kamen Rider, or Captain Harlock, or a whole host of other famous Japanese programs surely...

    RIP Kevin Conroy

    We lost the best Batman. Sorry to hear this, DCAU in its heyday is still unparalleled.

    Rieko Kodama, legendary JRPG developer, passed away earlier this year

    The Genesis Mini 2 has a dedication screen that reads "In memory of Rieko Kodama" on it, and Yosuke Okunari, who worked on the Mini 2, confirmed her death in this tweet: She made Phantasy Star, the 7th Dragon series, the Saturn version of Magic Knight Rayearth, and Skies of Arcadia, as well...

    RIP Angela Lansbury

    https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/angela-lansbury-dead-murder-she-wrote-beauty-and-the-beast-1235399636/ That's a shame. I've liked her in most everything she's been in, but her turn as a duplicitous hag running a phony freak show in The Last Unicorn was the most memorable, simply because it...

    R.I.P. Ray Liotta

    Ray Liotta is dead at 67, died in his sleep while filming a movie in the Dominican Republic. He's been in a great many things but mostly I'll remember him for GTA Vice City and of course his most memorable role as Henry Hill in the darkly comedic crime epic Goodfellas. He really was perfect in...

    R.I.P. Fred Ward

    I'm sure a lot of people think of him from The Player, Robert Altman's satirical meta-noir (which... I have not seen yet) but even more, myself included, remember him as Kevin Bacon's best from Tremors.

    R.I.P. Neal Adams

    Legendary comics creator and creator rights' advocate Neal Adams dead at age 80. https://www.cbr.com/neal-adams-trailblazing-comic-book-creator-dies-80/ I must concede despite being one of THE important creators of superhero fiction, I've only read a bit of his work... but I have a real love...

    RIP Liz Sheridan

    Liz Sheridan is dead at 93. For people of a certain age, you will likely know her either as ALF's busybody neighbor or Seinfeld's mom.

    R.I.P. Gilbert Gottfried

    Literally the "voice" of several generations, Gilbert Gottfried, has died. https://www.avclub.com/r-i-p-gilbert-gottfried-1848784468 I'm somewhat familiar with his acerbic stand up but to me he was a voice actor with an instantly recognizable voice and boy did he know it. I couldn't imagine a...

    RIP Taylor Hawkins

    What a fucking loss. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/foo-fighters-drummer-taylor-hawkins-obituary-1327112/

    R.I.P. Emilio Delgado

    https://etcanada.com/news/875266/sesame-street-star-emilio-delgado-dead-at-81/ So long, Luis. You were a big part of my childhood.

    RIP Howard Hesseman

    This is probably going to be one of those celebrity deaths that slips under the radar, but Howard Hesseman (who died yesterday at 81) was a prolific actor and comedian who popped up in a lot of television shows throughout the 1970s and 80s. Most people likely remember him as Johnny Fever from...

    R.I.P. Louie Anderson

    Beloved stand up comedian and actor Louie Anderson has died. I mostly remember him for his odd Wonder Years-esque cartoon series Life with Louie but I hear that his role as Zach Galifinakis' mother in Baskets is pretty fantastic. And he was one of the big names during the stand-up super boom...
  18. Issun

    He Won't Do That: Farewell Michael Lee Aday aka Meatloaf.

    He had a singular voice, but I'll remember him most for Rocky Horror, Fight Club, and his defining 1993 video I Would Do Anything for Love, which paved the way for other epic music vids, culminating in Lil Nas X's Montero. He was an important talent, and he will be missed.
  19. Issun

    R.I.P. Veronica

    Ronnie Spector passed away on Wednesday. Even if her legacy was only Be My Baby, that was still one of the most perfect pop songs ever recorded, and a template for music for decades afterwards.
  20. Johnny Unusual

    R.I.P. Betty White

    She will be missed. https://www.avclub.com/r-i-p-betty-white-1848291586
