Half of the surviving Fopp branches, including my regular stomping ground in Manchesters northern quarter, where I saw many a small private gig and screening, and the jobs of nearly 500 people. A piece of the music, arts and cinema scene is now gone.

They died once before in 2007: https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=20270.0

HMV saved them that time, but I can't see anyone riding to the rescue of a high street CD & DVD retailer today. Game over, dude, game over.

Albert Finney, cinema's original 'angry young man' aged 82

Aw fuck. Finney was a wonderful actor. His portrayal of Tom Jones is simply one of the best performances ever. The food scene is in a class by itself. RIP Albert.  :'(

A clown, a festive miser, and a werewolf hunter. Finney was a patron saint of the Manchester acting scene and a fabulous screen presence. He'll be missed.

I find it hard to choose a favourite between Finney's Scrooge and Alastair Sim's.

Dammit! Finney playing "Danny Boy" on the Thompson is one of my favourite things ever.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Gordon Banks, World Cup winning England goalkeeper at 81. I'd rather we didn't have this excuse to see THAT save over and over on the news but a good innings. Wait, that's the other game, isn't it?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Bruno Ganz
, 77.

Swiss actor, probably best known internationally for his role as Hitler in Downfall (and the following scene parodied thousands of times).



That's how my initial post should have appeared - a ']' went missing.

He was also great as the angel in Wim Wender's fascinating Wings of Desire (Der Himmel über Berlin).
