Thanks, Higashimori. I was coming in here to post that one, if no one else had. Even though I'm not a user of his products, I have to say he was truly a visionary.

Yes he was a visionary KC. I don't use his products either but many, many people do so he will be sadly missed. It is not so long ago that he gave an interview saying he was stepping down because of ill health. He was far too young. 

RIP Steve.

Diane Cilento, the dusky-voiced stage and film actress whose forthright sensuality was best displayed as the wench Molly in “Tom Jones” and who endured a tempestuous marriage to actor Sean Connery, died Oct. 6 in Queensland, Australia. She was 79.

I meant to post this earlier ... Charles Napier, the character actor, who was a favorite of Jonathan Demme, passed away on Wednesday.

Quote
But with his formidable jaw, gruff demeanor and growling bass voice, Mr. Napier was typically cast in rugged parts. He played Tucker McElroy, the irate frontman for the country band the Good Ole Boys, in “The Blues Brothers” (1980); Murdock, the villain in “Rambo: First Blood Part II” (1985); and Lt. Bill Boyle, who is murdered by Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991).

He appeared on television shows like “The Rockford Files,” “B. J. and the Bear” and, more recently, “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He provided voices for “The Simpsons,” “The Critic” and other animated series. His most high-profile role was the contemplative Judge Garnett in “Philadelphia” (1993).

“I always felt I played myself or some kind of version of myself,” he told The Bakersfield Californian last March. “If you think about it, old actors probably don’t even have a self.”

George Baker the English actor who played in many movies but best remembered as Inspector Wexford in the television series of Ruth Rendall's books.

R.I.P. Dan Wheldon :'(

Dan Wheldon, who was killed in a multiple pile-up in the Las Vegas Indy 300 on October 16 aged 33, was one of the most successful British drivers in motorsport. He was also one of my favourite drivers and twice a winner of the famous Indianapolis 500. Dan was an exceptionally gifted driver and will be sadly missed in the world of motorsport. :(

I was deeply shocked and saddened by this horrifying sad news. :'(



condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. :'(

RIP Ms. Cilento and Misters Jobs, Napier, Baker and Wheldon.  I recently read Mr. Jobs officially resigned on August 24 and that date stands out because that's when my Nina Marie was born.

God bless them all.

Joe Frazier, the relentless slugger who became the heavyweight champion of the world and earned boxing immortality with three epic battles against Muhammad Ali, has died aged 67.

"Smokin' Joe" Frazier, who was the first boxer to beat Ali, died in Philadelphia on Monday (local time) a month after being diagnosed with liver cancer.

RIP Smokin' Joe.

It's been a long time since I've watched them, but those three fights with Ali are pretty amazing.  I should watch them again.  I was always an Ali guy, but you have to admit, the two of them were pretty evenly matched up, and Joe was able to give Ali all he could handle.

Brazil legend Socrates dies. :(



Brazil's 1982 World Cup captain Socrates, the 'Golden Heel' renowned as one of the great playmakers of his generation, died in hospital on Sunday of septic shock at the age of 57.

The tall full-bearded playmaker captained Brazil in the 1982 World Cup in Spain and was a member of the squad in 1986 in Mexico. The 1982 Brazilian team became widely known as the best not to win a World Cup.

R.I.P Socrates :(
