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)

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?"

79 is 142 in wrestler years.

I always enjoyed him.

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

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

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.

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.
