Aw man, that's too bad. RIP to the original Chewie.

Funny thing is he was just a hospital orderly that happened to be very tall, and he ended up becoming one of the most iconic characters in science fiction just by wearing a furry suit.

American animator Christopher Reccardi, best known for his work in multiple roles for hit series such as The Ren & Stimpy Show, The Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack, died May 2 at age 54. The news was shared on Facebook by friend and Ren & Stimpy colleague William Wray, who wrote that Reccari — an avid surfer — “died doing what he loved.”

Peggy Lipton also passed away over the weekend. My parents' generation would remember her from the Mod Squad, I remember her from Twin Peaks.

"Through the darkness of future past, the magician longs to see.
One chants out between two worlds: Fire, walk with me."
- Twin Peaks
"You listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you Sheriff Truman." - Twin Peaks

Not sure how famous he is outside Sweden, but Swedish author Sven Lindqvist passed away yesterday. I can strongly recommend his Exterminate all the Brutes for anyone interested in the evolution of colonialism and genocide leading up to the Holocaust. I haven't read his History of Bombing, but it's supposed to be good as well. He certainly had a way with words at least.

For thirteen years I had a dog with fur the darkest black. For thirteen years he was my friend, oh how I want him back.

Just saw on FB and confirmed elsewhere that former F-1 driver Niki Lauda passed away.

I know not many race fans/petrol-heads on this forum, but he was still quite well known.

This one was sad for me, I'm a big fan of his and his comeback to racing after that horror crash was amazing. 3 World Drivers Championships to his name is no small feat.

He's going to be missed, brave man and one who did more than most to make F1 more than a deathrace

Avon outlived Blake then, but not for very long.

What a character Avon was, played with such wonderful snark by Darrow. I've been feeling an urge to rewatch B7 for a while, actually...

“Good people are quick to help others in need, without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. The wicked will believe they are fighting for good, but when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”
