Philomena Lynott - Phil Lynott's mum. 

Quite a character apparently.  A regular at Dublin's Rock Museum, where she donated a ton of Phil's stuff for the final room in an awesome museum.

I always remember him from that episode of Bergerac 'A Man Of Sorrows' where he played the seemingly corrupt Chief Chater. He was memorable as the working class Chater who resented Jack Galloways more Middle-class Hallowes. Indeed, he'd sent him out as a lure to trap Big Criminals, like George Bakers thuggish Drug and Gangland Chief Higgins. Competent Actor who worked solidly far as I can tell for over six decades.

Freddie Jones, who happens to be my avatar as Thufir Hawat in Dune, died today. Sad loss and a great actor

A sad day for comedy. R.I.P. Brendan Grace, best known as the obnoxious Fr. Fintan Stack in Father Ted.  :(

He'll aways be Bottler to me.  Tapes of his (and Billy Connolly's) accompanied us as kids on many trips out west, and I can still hear us all singing along to "There was Rasher and Razor and Bottler and me / We borr'eed a car and went down to the sea" (inevitably interspersed with 'Convoy' and 'Patricia the Stripper' - we were edgy, man). 

By no means all of his older work comes up to scratch for treatment of race, class and sex (I'm thinking of his Chinese Takeaway routine, to name one...), but find me a comedian from 40 years ago that passes on all counts.

RIP Karl, and condolences to his family, friends and colleagues - including the forum member who worked with him.

The 33 (and possibly more) members of Kyoto Animations' staff killed in an arson attack, BBC, believed to be the highest death toll by murder in post-war Japans history and around 25% of the studio's key staff.

I was shocked by how much of their output I'd gobbled up during my animuuu phase - FMP, Lucky Star and Haruhi being the most obvious highlights.  Terrible news.

Awful, awful way to go and what a horrific loss of a cultural cornerstone.
