That is so true. Someone described Mr Henson as "a very good, talented teacher" and that he was.

I will never forget him and the characters he created: I just have to look at my Kermit and my huge Cookie Monster and there he is.  Smile


     Jim Henson died the same day as this gentleman....

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Seconding Nick Drake and adding Jeff Buckley to the list. Only 30 when he died he had already put out a classic album (Grace) and was working on a second that was even better. There's a great double cd set "Sketches of my Sweetheart the Drunk" that is made up of the work he had already done on his sophomore album previous to his death and it is incredible.

Chuck Shuldiner- Singer and guitarist of Death certainly made his mark on the work of death metal, but dying at only 34 we will never know just how far he could have taken the genre. His final album with Death "The Sound Of Perseverance" showed a new level of sophistication and class rarely heard among his peers. I could only imagine how incredible the follow ups would have been had Chuck not been taken away at such an age. 
 
Brad Renfro at the age of 25, only a year older than me and he had already accomplished so much in his acting career. His lead performances in such great films as "Bully" and "Telling Lies in America" highlighted an extreme level of talent. Sadly drugs took this young man too soon. A particularily amazing quote from him sums up my feelings on all three men "I choose films for their artistic value. I don't need a mansion or a Jaguar. When I leave this Earth, I won't take any money with me. All I will leave behind will be my art." Whether it be music, film or any possible endeavor we may feel sad that such talent is gone but it is what you leave behind that truly matters, a truth if I ever heard one.

Bruce was only 32 when he passed away. He was THE master of modern martial arts and such a pleasure to watch.

Agreed: I would still like to know why our censor board banned Enter The Dragon back in the day as there is nothing that I wouldn't show young peeps in that at all.  Question

I can't imagine. I've probably watched that film 100 times and there's nothing amiss with it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
