Well, not sure what happened at this point in time, but it appears David Carradine has passed away. I know a lot of people know and love him from Kung-fu, but I was a bit too young and just think of his as Bill. Damn shame. More details as they emerge I'm sure.

You know, I've never actually really believed that death is inevitable. I just think it's a rumor.

I read that he may have had heart failure due to orgasm. That's one hell of a way to go!

I can imagine the policemen who found him must have deeply regretted not ringing in sick that day...

If that's true, at least he died happy...

Well, this time we've had two in one day, Farrah Fawcett and the moonwalker himself.

Slightly sad that we didnt recognise the passing of Henry Allingham, the worlds oldest man, and oldest survivor of the Great War I will not let the passing of Harry Patch go by unmarked.

Harry Patch, the Last Fighting Tommy, veteran of Ypres and Paschendale has passed away aged 111.

I believe he is to be granted a state funeral, and if ever one was required it is now, not just for Mr Patch, but for a tribute to a whole lost generation.

Not sure how many people on the site will know or care about this, but Rest In Peace Sir Bobby Robson

He made some of the best movies I have ever seen and was a major part of growing up for me, rest easy John Hughes.
