Ditto that. I was fearing the worst until I scrolled back up.

Stuart McLean, 68, host of CBC Radio's "The Vinyl Cafe", sort of the Canadian "Prairie Home Companion"; after a battle with melanoma.

I will sorely miss his sing-song delivery of the ongoing saga of long-suffering domestic protagonists Dave & Morley.

I didn't know Stuart was sick. RIP

Dutch illustrator Dick Bruna (89) mostly known for his creation of children's books about Miffy (or Nijntje as it's called here).
He also did the cover art for the Dutch translated version of James Bond novels.

R.I.P. Mr. Steele
Thank you for all those childhood memories!

(wish i could find a video with him eating the turnbuckle padding)
post #11158 of 12833

I've never really followed wrestling, but I'll always remember him for his portrayal of Tor Johnson in Ed Wood. "Movies? You mean like the Mickey Mouse?"

post #11159 of 12833
79 is 142 in wrestler years.

I always enjoyed him.
post #11160 of 12833

Kind of blows my mind that Steele lived significantly longer than Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth, mis most notable WWF rivals.

post #11161 of 12833

Well look at the guy.  It's not like he was juicing or doing insane high spots or anything.

post #11162 of 12833

Good article with an excerpt from Steele's book about his days feuding with Macho Man:

Another night in Detroit, Vince McMahon asked me to grab Miss Elizabeth by the ankle. You guessed it, Randy went R.P. McMurphy crazy. We were not flying over the cuckoo’s nest; we were living in it. Every night it was something different. Randy's jealousy was driving him crazy. There were times when he would lock her in the dressing room. Randy was always screaming at somebody.

Norma McCorvey, Plaintiff in Landmark Roe v. Wade Decision, Dies

 

Norma McCorvey, whose legal challenge under the pseudonym "Jane Roe" led to the U.S. Supreme Court's

landmark decision that legalized abortion but who later became an outspoken opponent of the procedure, died Saturday. She was 69.

Bad week for pro wrestlers.  Chavo Guerrero Sr., Nicole Bass, George Steele, and now Ivan Koloff.

 

I remember him and his "nephew" Nikita Koloff running roughshod in NWA/WCW.  That was a great heel faction.

post #11167 of 12833

Longtime TIME Magainze film critic Richard Schickel, 84.

 

https://twitter.com/Variety/status/833496226502828032

 

One of my favorite-ever audio commentary moments comes from Schickel's commentary on The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - at the final showdown as it builds and builds, Schickel just loses all critical pretense and starts laughing with delight - at Morricone's score, the editing, all of it, at the pure joy of great cinema. RIP.

Part of me died when I found out he was actually French-Canadian.

Clyde Stubblefield, THE Funky Drummer, passed Saturday at the age of 73. Before they came along, no one was doing anything remotely like what he and JB came up with. Co-genius in the birth of funk.

 

Let's give the drummer some!

 

 

 

And of course, the most sampled drum break in history, which has overshadowed that Clyde maintains a rhythm for over 9 minutes with a precision beyond the capacity of actual metronomes,

Filmmaker Seijun Suzuki dies at 93. Watch Tokyo Drifter or Branded to Kill tonight in his honor.

There are currently people trying to verify if Bill Paxton has passed away.

 

Xander Berkeley's tweet seems to be the only verification so far.

 Looking at Xander's Twitter feed now and seeing nothing about Paxton at all.

 

ETA: That tweet appears to have been taken down.

Damn it. Cause?
post #11175 of 12833

Relax. It's a fake.

post #11176 of 12833

Hoax. Game is NOT over, man!

post #11177 of 12833

There better be flags flying at half mast if it really happens.

post #11178 of 12833
Thank God. We've lost enough national treasures as it stands.

No, it was Dylan McDermott. 

post #11183 of 12833
No, Dermot Mulrooney

Gonna just say this: Titanic doesn't work nearly as well without him.

post #11187 of 12833

Are we sure Death didn't actually come for Michael Biehn and got them confused?

post #11188 of 12833

He was also great on Big Love, which I have only watched a few seasons of, but my wife is a big fan. It's fine, nuanced work from him, and he deserved to go on to have a Bryan Cranston career-bump.  

post #11189 of 12833
Shit... Well this sucks.
post #11190 of 12833

Well that sucks. 

post #11191 of 12833
God dammit.
post #11192 of 12833

Fucking hell. 

 

One False Move, A Simple Plan and yes, Frailty are three of my favorites of his.  This is horrible news to wake up to.

post #11193 of 12833

All I'm reading is "complications from surgery." Any other details available?

 

Dude was too young. This sucks.

post #11194 of 12833

Damn, Paxton was easily a favorite, and 61 is far too soon.

 

Did anything catch his "Training Day" show?

post #11195 of 12833
Fuuuuuuuck.

His Chet in Weird Science was my first Paxton.

Fucking sucks.
post #11196 of 12833

Shocking.  Paxton was always a presence I enjoyed in movies.

post #11197 of 12833
RIP.

Very Shocking.

He directed a golf move called "The Greatest Game Ever Played" with Shia LaBeouf and Stephen Dillane. It's a pretty solid flick.
post #11198 of 12833
I just heard him on the WTF podcast. He sounded full of life and was his usual charming self. What the hell?

Fuck this. Aliens, Twister, A Simple Plan, Big Love, fucking Apollo 13.
post #11200 of 12833

'A Simple Plan' was an underrated Bill Paxton gem.  Don't know if it's easy to find nowadays.
