Terribly sad news if this is actually true. Haven't seen any other reports, but there's someone who's posted on this article claiming to be his nephew. I also thought that he was about 76. Probably my favourite movie "bad guy" of all time, with hundreds of films to his name.

     According to FoxNews, it's true-

    One of the last classic screen villians, great fun to watch....

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.

R.I.P. Mr. Lynch. You sure had a long career as cool and strong villainous characters on numerous TV shows and movies circa 1970s-1990s.

Well, he's front and center (essentially) in my avatar.  So, I guess I should say, RIP Mr. Lynch.  Really does feel like a little piece of my childhood died with him.  Grew up with him in my mind as one of the best b-movie villains.

    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.
