Was listening to the radio on the way to the comic shop, one of the stations mentioned his passing. A cohost said she is fairly sure Garland's stunt double is still around, so at least some people from that flick are still alive.

Anthony Bourdain, the gifted chef, storyteller and writer who took TV viewers around the world to explore culture, cuisine and the human condition for nearly two decades, has died. He was 61.

This is so unexpected. Really sad.

The Bond fan in me is saddened. A classic beauty immortalized forever in those brief scenes. Glad she lived to a ripe old age. Good for her.

Twenty is too young to be in a sober living home.

The article itself that details his short life makes him look like complete garbage.

Yeah, I barely even knew about the guy beforehand. Wasn't a fan of his music, but everybody I know elsewhere feels so bad about it. Dude lived a crappy life.

Vader wrestled Ric Flair in one of the best matches I've ever seen. Vader resented having to lose to Flair, and intentionally bloodied his mouth. You can hear Flair mumble "You son of a bitch" after he did it, but Flair didn't retaliate. Harley Race called Vader an asshole afterward.

Koko, RIP.

I think the woman who owned Koko was a charlatan, but Koko seemed like a nice gorilla.
