    I was surprised to find that, too. I can't really think of any good reason for that. Ti speculation is failing me here.

    I wonder if The Internship had any basis what so ever in fact and I still wonder who that movie was made for.

    Friend changed his schedule and now he isn't coming to the pulmageddon anymore. I was looking forward to it all week. Suddenly I'm not very excited anymore. Now I'm just sad.

    Bowie has hit me hard.

    Lemmy was more of a general bummer for me but I realize he had legions of fans who are shattered over his death and they have my condolences, whatever that's worth.

    Rickman was fucking brilliant. I always forget I'm watching Alan Rickman because he disappears into his characters. I can only say that about a few other actors (Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Marlon Brando). I just read an interesting article/obit. noting how much his performance as Hans Gruber was copied and aped by other actors in similar action thrillers in the late 80s and early to mid 90s. I hadn't noticed that before, but it's apparent if you watch a film like, say, Passenger 57. He certainly left his mark on cinema.

    None of these guys were particularly old either. It's also hit home because I have a father of 62 who is a lifelong smoker, so I think it's possibly caused a lot of anxiety in me that I'm only today realizing why.

    I'm a fan of Bowie, I only really know Lemmy for that one song but both of those demises didnt hit like Rickman, I was so, so sure I had to be being trolled when I heard that, then when I heard that he was the same ages as Bowie and died of Cancer too I was shocked, I thought, what the hell, none of these guys are that old and it made me think about a lot of family and friends I've been worried about for a while and I'm not well myself either.

    Its been a bad couple of weeks but death and taxes. More or less.
