Life Nerf: The R.I.P. Thread


#1

Rest in peace Syd Mead. Produced some wonderful art and was the designer behind several landmark sci-fi films.

“Science fiction is nothing but reality ahead of schedule.”

Loved this guy’s work.


#2

I was legitimately upset to hear this even though he was retired.

Sci-fi wouldn’t be the same without this absolute LEGEND.

drinks up for Mead. :’(


#3

A local musician I was acquainted with just died of cancer of the kidneys. Uber cool old hippie vibes : ( He will be missed.


#4

I AM SPARTICUS!

RIP Kirk Douglas. Bloody good innings though.


#5

Andrew Weatherall.

Found out today he sadly passed away. I went to his Sabresonic nights in London loads back in the day. This really brought things back. Such happy memories from such a sad piece of news.


#6

In many ways that man was a god.


#7

Fred Willard

Just one of those faces that turned up regularly that was a good chuckle whatever he did.


#8

RIP. I really love him in the Christopher Guest flicks. Always a pleasant surprise seeing him turn up in other films too.


#9

He was amazing when he turned up in an episode of Chuck, perfectly played spoof secret agent.


#10

Ian Holm. Decent innings but still sad to see him shuffle off.

Bilbo yeh whatever* but as Ash, oooohh hell yeh. That’s how you play it.

*Still great there though :slight_smile:


#11

I guess in the end he was the one who ate the magazine roll.

RIP. Incredible actor, 88 years is a good stretch.


#12

Ennio Morricone breathed his last. Jolly good innings though, fantastic composer.

Dave K unexpectedly passed away in his sleep, aged 60. I had the chance to hang out with him and Nikki Sudden during my London days. He was a very gentle guy, a legendary lush.

RIP Dave - Thanks for the music, the company and the memories. Truly a unique artist, he was.
