Post Obituaries

The all-purpose Corrierino thread for those looking to eulogize the recently deceased.

I don't have any recent passings to report at the moment. although I'll mention that in 2017 (movie director-wise) we lost Seijun Suzuki, Jonathan Demme, John G. Avildsen, George A. Romero, Jerry Lewis, and Tobe Hooper.

(and feel free to mention any other passings from 2017 you feel were significant)

This isn't his best film, by any stretch, but has to be one of my favorite scenes of the great late actor.

This ain't just dogshit he's doing here, this is a man you love laying it on the line.

That sucks. Really good singer. Love The Cranberries, and I liked her solo stuff as well.

R.I.P. It's so depressing how many '90s musicians we've lost already.

Yeah I saw that, Stu. Too bad.

Also The Cranberries are awesome. 46 is really young.

Ursula Le Guin is not the most commonly known science fiction writer, but she was an influential one, and well worth celebrating or discovering.

I saw that today and was super sad about it. She's an author I discovered in college with The Left Hand of Darkness during a female sci-fi writers kick that I was on.

Yup, that's her classic. I also really like The Lathe of Heaven. I hadn't seen the PBS version mentioned in the article, so I looked it up and found it on Youtube, from 1980 with a very young Bruce Davison. Pretty damn good find actually.

Well, shit.

Since it's been my go to Fall jam, and my previous links have been wiped clean, I will repeat the indefatigable BBC version of "Words of Expectation".

Reg Cathey to me will always be the guy who sang "9, 9, 9" on Square One, the show that got me interested in math when I was very young. He was one of the first actors whose voice I could recognize when he wasn't on screen.
