Jesus I can't believe I got the name wrong there - so sorry as others have said John Paul Leon. So disrespectful of me and I'm very sorry.

My only excuse was Tommy Lee Edwards started that GoFund me - but still.

Hardly disrespectful - just a minor mistake.

Hearing Richard Halliwell, the designer of Warhamer, Space Hulk, Dark Future and of course Block Mania, among others, has passed away.
A big chunk of my formative years was influenced by his work. Sad times.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

tweet from fellow gaming luminary Graeme Davis

Quote from: Graeme-Davis
Richard Halliwell is no longer with us. One of #Warhammer's creators, plus #SpaceHulk, #DarkFuture, and more.
To say Hal was a personality is an understatement.  I think of him as the British games industry's very own Crazy Diamond. Shine on, Hal.

I, Cosh

Behind the times, but Anita Lane died last week. Best known for colloborations with Nick Cave and assorted Bad Seeds, you can also give her own records a listen.
We never really die.

Billy Hayes 'Witchiepoo' in the Pufnstuf TV series has met her Waterloo. It was the most bonkers TV series ever made and only lasted a season.
