    RIP Ed Asner, America's Cranky Grandpa

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/29/entertainment/ed-asner-death/index.html This blows. He was in so much stuff that I don't even know where to begin to sing his praises.

    R.I.P. Sonny Chiba

    Sonny Chiba has died from COVID complications. I haven't seen most of his work, but Kill Bill is one of my all time faves, and his performance as Hatori Hanzo was one of the biggest highlights. I still quote some of his lines from time to time.

    R.I.P. Biz Markie

    Biz Markie, at age 57, has died from complications due to diabetes. https://www.avclub.com/r-i-p-biz-markie-1847208896 Biz is a luminary in the age of what Reginald Hudlin (and maybe other people but I've first heard the specific term come from the House Party director's mouth) calls Happy Rap...

    R.I.P. Richard Donner

    https://www.avclub.com/r-i-p-superman-and-lethal-weapon-director-richard-donn-1847232102 Richard Donner, one of the great director of major popcorn films has died. No details yet. He was 91. Richard Donner made some of the big movies of my youth. For many it was Superman but while I love...
  6. 4-So

    RIP Bryan St. Pere (Hum)

    Ridiculously unfortunate, especially after Inlet's release in 2020, one of the best albums of the year and maybe the best Hum album period. Hum is one of the bands that firmly sits in my top five. Such a loss. Dead at 52, a daunting number for me because my dad passed away at 52. So that feels...

    R.I.P. Charles Grodin

    Character actor Charles Grodin passed away at 86 yesterday. He was best known for his comedic work in films such as the classic The Heartbreak Kid, the family hit Beethoven, the beloved action comedy Midnight Run, and the bizarre cult comedy Clifford. But to me, I'll best remember him as the...

    R.I.P. Felix Silla

    You might not of heard of him but he was pretty important in genre TV and film. Noted roles include Cousin Itt, the Polka Dotted Horse in HR Pufnstuf, Colonel Poom in Lidsville, Lucifer in Battlestar Galactica (the old one), and an Ewok in Return of the Jedi. But he's most famous for Twiki in...

    RIP Jessica Walter

    Jessica Walter died yesterday. She was 80. I know her mostly from her incredible TV work in Arrested Development, Dinosaurs, and Archer.

    R.I.P. Christopher Plummer

    Its been talked about but legendary actor Christopher Plummer died recently. For me, he's one of those great actors who seems to be up for everything and anything and his filmography reflects that, from the greats to the questionable (like a trilogy of animated movies where noted racist HP...

    RIP SOPHIE

  13. L

    R.I.P MF DOOM

    One of the greatest rappers/producers passed back in October, though we just learned about it today. DOOM was my first favorite rapper and never really left that spot in my brain. This one hurts. If you've never listened to Madvillainy, do yourself a favor. All of his solo albums (as DOOM...

    R.I.P. John le Carré

    John le Carré has passed away, according to his publisher. Gonna reread Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy in his memory.

    RIP Chadwick Boseman

    AP is reporting he just passed at the age of 43 after a four year battle with colon cancer. Fuck 2020. May he rest in power. Edit: His official twitter account has confirmed it.
