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

Bart Cummings. It's pretty strange. He's been in the news on a regular basis since I can remember. He's one of those people that make you think, "how can he be dead? He's always around! He's been there forever!" And then you think some more, "Oh, wait- if he has been around forever, mustn't it mean that he's really old?" And then you think, "Oh."

So old Bart's gone to the big racing track into sky. Who knows, maybe he'll even meet Phar Lap there?

Three time MVP and legendary basketball player Moses Malone is dead. He was one of my favorites. emot-frown All we know so far is that it was "sudden". He was only sixty.

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

Scott Weiland, former lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, died yesterday at age 48.

Robert Loggia, whose name you recognize but can't remember a thing he's in(Scarface, Prizzi's Honor), died today at age 85.

David Canary, who I know as Adam and Stuart Chandler from All My Children (but others may know him as Candy Canaday from Bonanza), died November 16th at age 77. Fun fact: he is the great-great-nephew of Calamity Jane.

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

I know holy shit. I awoke from my months long slumber to post this because suddenly I remembered that I started a thread about reporting dead celebrities.

I also realized that I didn't know much about David Bowie's personal life other than the fact that he had a kid in the 70's and named him "Zowie."

So I read his wikipedia article. And found out that Zowie Bowie grew up to direct the Warcraft movie.

Duncan Jones has directed Moon and a lot of other stuff I like too but I've probably typed "Zowie Bowie grew up to direct the Warcraft movie" at least a dozen times in the hour I've been awake because there's something just surreal about that sentence.


Hinotori made this post, and then went back and changed it later. Such is life.

I'd been crying off-and-on for the last three hours because a friend of mine wrote an amazing post about what David Bowie meant/means to him on Facebook, and it just fucking wrecked me.

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

David Bowie's passing made me sad, but it was a distant sort of sad because I didn't really love and consume his media on a regular basis. I appreciated his dedication to his art, to his constant reinvention and the fact that he made strangeness acceptable and even desirable. It was always more of a respect for his accomplishments, and the occasional "I think I'll listen to Station to Station today" than anything else.

But Alan Rickman's passing truly breaks my heart. I can't find the words to express it. I wish I could. emot-frown

And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

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

Mocha, you took the words out of my mouth. I very much admired David Bowie; loved the shit out of him in a few of the movies I'd seen him in and knew he was important in the history of rock and pop culture. Also he was mega hot in red suits.

But...But....

Alan Rickman...no.... emot-frown

I know at this point everyone will remember him as Snape, and he was awesome as hell as Snape, but there were so many roles that he just nailed so hard. I watched Die Hard at work over Christmas with a coworker, and remembered, again, that he made that movie work. He made an awesome Captain Nottingham, redeeming what would otherwise have been a pretty meh movie. And he was god damn amazing as Rasputin, which as an HBO movie that predates major DVD release, is a lost gem that I encourage anyone to track down now and see. (Bonus Ian McKellen!!) I could just keep going. He was such a talented actor, and not always a villain! Sense and Sensibility would have been a much less interesting movie without him. That said...as a connoisseur of villainy, he will be sorely, sorely missed by me.

But you know what? It sounds like they both had pretty god damn amazing runs, and neither spent years and years in misery, decline, and senility. And that, from my background as a nurse, is a blessing in itself. Godspeed you two. etc-love

This is not a good time to be a 69 year old English entertainer... emot-frown A very sad start to 2016 indeed. I'll miss Alan Rickman too. I know him best as Snape, but also enjoyed his roles in Sweeney Todd, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Alice in Wonderland.

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

And now Glenn Frey from the Eagles is dead too. Oh, and Celine Dion's husband and brother within two days of each other.

Also, Gary Loizzo, founding member of the band American Breed had died. They're the band that sings "Bend me, shape me, any way you want", which through a continuous series of lineup changes became Chaka Khan's band, Rufus.

Oh, and the drummer from Mott the Hoople, Dave Griffin also died today. Their big hit was "All the Young Dudes", which was written by David Bowie, who had actually offered them "Suffragette City" first, but they turned it down.

Seriously, is the Afterlife organizing a supergroup or a music festival, because this shit's getting way out of hand. emot-frown

Which is sad, but to be fair he was like 94 during the filming of The Godfather. He had a great sense of humor though, I've seen him pop up here and there perfectly happy to make fun of himself.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. This is quite the political opportunity, though I'm worried at how obstructive the Senate will be to the new appointment.

Edit: Ah, I see this topic is being covered in the Politics thread. Much more appropriate! I'll head over there.
