Here's one I bet no one has on their list: French Actress,
Maria Schneider, age 58. She was only 19 when she acted in
"The Last Tango in Paris" with Brando. The film was quite controversial at the time.

That is a shock and a HUGE loss to the world of music. He was, IMO, one of the best blues/rock guitarists ever. And absolute legend. Parissiene walkways and Still got the Blues for you and stunning.

[Waterworks]

I remember when my little sister was about 8 she met him. (my father is also an author, so we often met other authors and random semi-celebrities) She called me afterwards and shouted, "Brian Jacques shook my hand!" sounding very much like a school girl meeting Elvis. B was such a huge fan, and for months, maybe years, she told people about meeting Brian Jacques.

My 9 year old just read Redwall and is jonesing for the next books. this is sad.

Ken Olsen, co-founder of Digital Electronics Company, maker of the first mini-computers.

I have fond memories (from when I worked for Big Company in a technical training group) of tormenting students with 'bugs' created on the 15inch by 15inch boards in these computers by either cutting a solder run or creating a short-circuit with a bit of solder.

Sadly, my soldering skills have always been really bad, so my 'bugs' didn't always create the intended 'problem'. My students learned to dread my "Oh, that's interesting" reaction when they powered up the mini-computer, but we all learned a lot of troubleshooting skills.

I don't think anybody had them, but:

Chuck Tanner, former baseball player and manager (most famously, manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates) died today (Feb. 11).

Woodie Fryman, former baseball pitcher (including 4 seasons with my beloved Philadelphia Phillies--I remember it well), died back on February 4.

Props to Congressman Lee though, for a simple 'if-free' apology that doesn't try to put the damage and harm back on others. Frame it for future use.

When I heard of Mars's death I checked Google News and came up with a blog post from SoCal.

There's a great pair of links to youtube comparing Mars's inspector in Young Frankenstein to the original in Son of Frankenstein. (I'd never realized there was an original.)

But the real treat on that blog (at the same link) is watching Betty Garrett, who also just died, singing "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Red Skelton. It's a must watch.

The world feels less safe without the Brig in it.

I believe Surfing Madness did an all-Doctor Who list, but did not include Nicholas Courtney on it. What were the odds?

And with Duke Snyder passing, it has already been a rough year for former baseball players (with Chuck Tanner and Woodie Fryman already permanently benched this year).

I don't think she's on my list (I forget who is, apart from Mrs T [Devil] ) but must admit my first thought was "that's probably a lot of people with 21 points".

My first thought on hearing the news about Fred Titmus was the legendary song by Half Man Half Biscuit, which I couldn't possibly share on a Christian website [Smile]

Yeah. Her entrance in Ivanhoe taught me the meaning of "breathtakingly beautiful." I very literally was gasping like I'd had an asthma attack the first time I saw it. Kinda lame movie, but I'll watch it any time...

My favourite line about Ms Taylor is from the late and much lamented Divine who said:

All my life I've wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor - and now I find she's beginning to look like me.

My favorite Elizabeth Taylor one-liner is the one she delivered to the Kim Novak character in The Mirror Crack'd -- an otherwise eminently forgettable film, especially for Angela Lansbury's horrid performance as Miss Marple.

Liz: "There are only two things I don't like about you."

Kim: "What are they?"

Liz: "Your face!"

Also, in Butterfield 8, as she returns home early one morning after a hot night out on the town:

Mother's friend: "Well, how's church?"

Liz: "Why don't you go sometime and find out?"

It has been reported that H.R.F. Keating has died. At least according to The Telegraph. I haven't found any other media outlet confirming it yet.

Cardinal Varkey Vithayathil, spiritual leader of three and a half million Syro-Malabar Catholics in India, has died at the age of 83.

He was a pick on my clerical theme team.
