Ah that's sad. He gave us two of the most memorable bad guys in cinema, in the same franchise.

Yes, he played them both as monsters with little if any redeeming features. Very sad news I'll watch Mad Max again with a heavy heart.

I think David Prowse helped create one of the most memorable characters in cinema history and was a stalwart of many TV and film productions including several Hammer Horror movies. A tragedy he's gone of course, but the Force was with him when he donned the famous Vader suit, and mask.

Maradonna, like Pele, Croyfe and Ronaldo, for all his faults, made the beautiful game beautiful to watch. He was one of those sports personality who transcended into a world star, which takes that almost improbable odds of talent, personality and luck. Maradonna had serious drug and health problems, but he'll always be remembered as that wizard on the pitch outpacing everyone around him despite 'The Hand of God' moment.

Des O'Connor, aged 88.

Blimey, poor old Des O'Connor. After a fall at his home apparently. His interview with comedian Stan Boardman contains the infamous Fokker Wolf joke, and of course, he was forever ridiculed by Eric Morecombe and Ernie Wise in their shows. Des must be one of the best-known performers the British entertainment scene ever produced an all-round entertainer.

Here's a link to the YouTube interview with the fantastic Ian Kennedy. The audio is a bit weak.

It's...Filippo Roncone! Superb work. I've halfway through reading the new Futurequake, and the proper authorities will be informed! Thanks to all the artists and creators of Dogbreath and FQ for making a miserable November more endurable. My Painter software is on the blink, and so misery is my only companion to misquote Werner Herzog.

You can't have a king in America, and that's what the Trumpster is still trying to achieve, so his demise is something to feel satisfaction over. I doubt Trump will go quietly or if he does, it will be in the dead of night by the White House's backdoor, which would be a fitting enough judgement on his term of office.

Yes, he was a brilliant comedian and a great actor. I'm a bit shocked at his departure. At the age of 67, that seems far too young to leave this world behind.

Oh, how tragic. What a legacy and not just the Bond films but some others like The Untouchables and even bizarre near experimental movies like Zardoz. We won't see his like again, one of the last amongst the working-class actors who made a career in the movies.
