Manson's death is finally official...after a very strange week of trying to hide it from us. They're still vague on when he died (as of this morning) and what he died of.

But...whatever. RC! You gotta go front page with this!

Ursula Le Guin. She was one of the first fantasy authors I read. A major influence.

Stephen Hawking. Probably due to embarrassment about that movie they made of him.

Is it that bad?

Also, 76 with ALS is fucking amazing. He should have been dead decades ago.

R. Lee Ermey, of Full Metal Jacket Fame. Man...he's been riding his character in that movie for decades! I actually thought he was already dead.

Also, Art Bell: So now there's a job opening for RC to spout out wild conspiracy theories on the radio and make zillions from survivalist sponsors.

R. Lee Ermry was a genre convention staple.

Milos Forman as well this weekend, Czech-born director who did Amadeus, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The People vs. Larry Flynt, and a bunch of other really great movies. I saw a lot of his early Czech-language work when I was in Prague. He's a cultural hero over there.

And Barbara Bush. Though she seemed really old in 1990.

92's a good run. I had heard the news the other day about her failing health and how she was basically stopping all treatment.

Jhoon Rhee. Who was old when I met him in the 80s!
