While Tsutomu Yamaguchi may not have been a celebrity in the technical sense, I thought his passing should be acknowledged.

Worst...week....ever.

I read about Art Clokey yesterday and it made me sad (even though I've never actually seen Gumby) purely because of my love for stop-motion animation in general.

Of course I've seen Mary and Max. I knew about it before you did you poser! Although that could have something to do with me being in Australia...

RIP JD Salinger.  He wrote an awesome book, but he spent years preventing it from being adapted into a movie.  Now that he's gone, I'm wondering if the bottom feeders are going to start wanting to adapt it.

RIP Zelda Rubinstein  she was know for being in Poltergeist and she was parodied on the South Park episode Dead Celebrities which aired yesterday.

This one is pretty obscure if you don't watch VH1's That Metal Show.  I just found out that Keri Leigh Tucker, the "Miss Box of Junk", died in December of last year, cause undisclosed.

Sorry, double post.  I saw that Captain Phil Harris of the TV show "Deadliest Catch" has died.  I'm majorly addicted to that show, and he was a real character.  RIP, Captain Phil.

He was the one with the two sons who occasionally worked on his ship, right?  He was cool.  I liked Capt. Phil.

Or have some 50' crustacean launch itself onto his boat and engage him in mortal combat!

Why was the show called "Deadliest Catch", btw?

Walter Frederick Morrison has died aged 90. "Who is he?" you may ask... he was the inventor of the Frisbee.

That would be badass.  "From Hell's heart, I crab at thee!"

And it's called "Deadliest Catch" because it's so dangerous.  Rough and frigid seas, heavy equipment, no sleep...it's a bad job.

On the show, the Captains individually have said that the possibility of injury while crab fishing is 100%.  You're going to get hurt, no matter what.

Aw, man. That brings back memories of high-school. I haven't heard of (or thought of) The Knack in years. How many hits did they have, two?

[hang on a moment…]

Good grief, even now I can still recall over 60 of the songs from 1979's top 100 list just from the song title alone!

Thanks for the memories, Doug. R.I.P.

(Thanks for point it out, LobsterMooch .)

RIP Andrew Koening aka "Boner"

http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/TV/02/25/growing.pains.actor.dead/index.html

I never watched Growing Pains, but it's still sad to hear that someone from an 80's sit-com has passed away.

I'm not gonna lie, when the only thing you're remembered for is playing Kirk Cameron's friend "Boner" -hello? How can you not laugh a little- there's something a little sad in that. But from what I heard he was majorly depressed, so I sympathize with his family.

since my last name is Bohnenkamp, I too have been referred to as "Boner" before, anyways, RIP Andrew and my condolences to the Koenig family

I suppose it's all relative. How many people who tried their hand act acting never got even one 'memorable' role, I wonder?

Andrew Koenig was in no way just Boner. He played other roles (including the joker in Batman:Dead End), he directed stuff, he was arrested for protesting (something to do with china I think), he was a respected improv comic and, most importantly from my point of view, he shot the video (and was made fun of mercilessly) on the Never Not Funny podcast which is one of my favourite things ever. He was a genuinely funny guy who had clearly struggled with depression his whole life (which probably wasn't helped by people thinking of him as just Boner). His death hit me harder than any other celebrity death I can think of. I really feel like I've lost a friend.
