Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Kate McGarrigle, Canadian folk singer, died last Monday at 63. Those of us who aren't Canadian know her as Rufus and Martha Wainwright's mother.

Jean Simmons, British actress, died last Friday at 80 years old. Most of us would know her as Grandma Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle, but fans of pre-1960's cinema would recognize a lot of her work.

Zelda Rubenstein, who everybody and their mama should know as the short psychic lady from all three Poltergeist movies, died yesterday at the age of 76.

Double posting because Alexander McQueen, one of my favorite designers, committed suicide.

Seriously, this fucked up my morning when I found out.

For those of you who could give two hoots about fashion, he's the one that designed the freaky looking glitter shoes Lady Gaga had on in Bad Romance.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

I find it hard to articulate why this is tearing me up as much as it is. I've pretty much either cried or been on the verge of tears for the last 2 days. I don't normally have such a visceral response to famous dead people, but I honestly haven't been this upset since my mom died.

Now, I could sit here and do a lot of navel-gazing about why I feel this way, or wax analytically about that empty feeling you get when you lose a parent. But I'm not.

Instead, I will now linkspam you with fabulousness. (All NSFW due to occasional exposed breasts/nipples)

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Corey Haim was pronounced dead today; he was 38. At this time, the cause of death is still a toss-up between illness and an overdose, but many are understandably leaning toward the latter, as he had been struggling with drug addiction for years. You probably remember him as half of the infamous "Corey duo", along with Corey Feldman; however, that's not a terribly flattering memory, so I propose we just watch The Lost Boys and reminisce on what could have been. emot-frown

I've been meaning to watch The Lost Boys for a long time, but mainly to make fun of the cheese and and mock the  weird 80s-ness of it.

I heard abut that this morning and thought, "What a shame, I loved him in The Goonies."  Then I realized that was the other Cory, and felt incredibly guilty.

The president of Poland, along with his wife and several other major leaders of the country were killed in a plane crash.  I don't know about the popularity of the president, but even if he was unpopular, losing a president is a very shocking experience.

The irony of fate; they were going to an annual memorial to all the Poles killed by Stalin's purges that were aimed to destroy their political and military elite. And now the country's political and military elite die because of that, decades later. Dictators can apparently even kill from beyond the grave. emot-gonk

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Carl Macek, creator of Robotech, and really, founder of the anime industry as we know it, died of a heart attack on Saturday. He was incredibly instrumental in bringing anime to America, despite the negative way people see his adaptations.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

IMO, this counts.

The space shuttle Atlantis just launched for the last time, on its 32nd mission. Each remaining shuttle has one more launch before the end of the shuttle program, and effectively, the manned space program in the US.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

If I felt like the focus of our best scientists was going to more places where there immediate attention was necessary (the redefinition of "air and space" as including the ozone layer whatnot), I would be okay with the space program being put on the back burner. But it seems more like straight budget cuts to me. emot-frown So poo.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

RIP, Satoshi Kon

Your Millenium Actress, Paprika, and Tokyo Godfathers shall be much much remembered long after you have gone on.

Many people I know tonight will be watching your films to remember the talented director and artist you have proven yourself to be.
