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

I just heard about Umberto Eco, a great loss.

I think I will finally tackle The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana. The Portuguese publisher that held the rights to the translation went under and so the book became virtually impossible to find but I might as well go with the English translation instead.

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

RIP to two great authors. As you can probably tell from my signature, I loved Umberto Eco, but like every true American I thought of Harper Lee as kind of a shared literary grandmother—and of course, when you're as young as I am, you don't believe your grandma could ever die.

I haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird since eighth grade, though. Maybe I should—along with Foucault's Pendulum, I guess.

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

Yuko Mizutani died back in May. You would probably know her as Mihoshi from the Tenchi! series of your choosing, Chocolate Misu from Sorcerer Hunters, Sora from Digimon, or The Great Will of the Macrocosm from Excel Saga.

Kim McGuire died on September 14th. The name doesn't ring a bell, but if you're a John Waters fan, you know her as Hatchet Face from Cry-Baby. Apparently, acting was her living out her dreams, because she was actually a lawyer from New Orleans. Another interesting fact is that she was supposed to play Annie Wilkes in Misery, but lost the role to Kathy Bates. She was also in New York when 9/11 happened, and she was living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck.

Also, Alexis Arquette died on the 11th from an undisclosed ailment surrounded by her family.

The Lady Chablis from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (the book and the movie) died on the 7th from pneumonia.

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

Former US Senator John Glenn, the third American to ever go into space, died today at the age of 95. If anyone in or near Ohio wants to go to the public portion of his memorial service, it'll be at Ohio State's auditorium. They haven't announced the date.

We missed a lot of people since that last time anyone posted: Pete Burns, Jack Chick, Shimon Peres, Florence Henderson, Bobby Vee, Kevin Meaney, Natalie Babbitt(wrote Tuck Everlasting), Janet Reno, Robert Vaughn, Gwen Ifill, Sharon Jones, and Ron Glass. There was also the inventors of the disposable diaper, the Big Mac, and General Tso's Chicken, the guy who shot Brandon Lee, and the guy who played Tommy on Martin.

Then there are the anime-related deaths:

Michiyo Yasuda died October 5th. She did animation for a lot of Studio Ghibli stuff.
Susan Aceron, the voice of Sailor Pluto in the Cloverway dub for Sailor Moon (S and SuperS) die October 9th from nasopharynx cancer. She was 44.
Gary Dubin, 57, died October 8th. He did a lot of anime VA work in the 80s and 90s in stuff like Fist of the North Star, The Guyver, and Gundam: 08th MS Team.
Kazunari Tanaka died October 10th, age 49. He was in a lot of stuff, but some of his bigger parts were Bruno in Turn A Gundam and Tamaki in Code Geass.
Kaneta Kimotsuki, best known as Suneo Honekawa from Doraemon, died October 20 at age 80.

Don't forget Castro, which kind of falls in with the original spirit of this thread I guess.  Don't ask me. I just work here.

Man there's been a lot of death.

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

Leon Russell hit my family big. It was weird not to feel a world-grieving when he passed, the way Cohen or somebody got. Not that I'm trying to cheapen the folks who did, but damn, it's Leon Russell. From Elton John to the Pixies, Russell influenced music big time, Eric Clapton and two Beatles played on his first album. But, Russell was also this guy who just wouldn't let anybody, any performer or any audience segregate. White, Indian, black, gay, straight, he just dove in with everybody and made no excuses for anyone who had a hard time with accepting that. He and Willie Nelson sang Shotgun Willie, a song about facing down the Ku Klux Klan, at a concert in front of the Klan who were there disgruntled over a mixed band with mixed couples in it. One can only imagine if they'd done Crystal Closet Queen, but probably somebody would've ended up dead, so maybe it's alright they didn't.

And, the music he brought us! There's a man who just breathed, ate, and sweated sound. Glorious sound.

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

Debbie Reynolds passed away. My heart goes out to Billie Lourd, having to bury both her mother and grandmother in the same week.

I'll be glad to see 2016 end, although I suspect next year will be more of the same.

The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
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.

I was thinking how sad it was that My Ding-a-Ling was Chuck Berry's biggest chart placement, then I realized: a) it's a live recording - who has a hit with a live recording? - b) he's actively encouraging both homosexuality and women taking responsibility for their own sexuality, meaning that for a short period in the early 70s virtually every radio station in America had a black man telling gay men, "It's a free country!" recorded in the UK where it was only just becoming legal, and c) half the song is sung by the audience at the concert; he had a hit song and made his best money by getting an audience to sing someone else's forty year old novelty song.

That and throwing free tracks out to space aliens are innovations who is going to touch? You can't even "oh, it was a time traveling Marty" that.
