Not surprising, but super sad about the passing of Stan Lee

Yup. At least he really lived a full life, and just long enough to see so many of his characters come to life on the big screen.

Was literally a legend in his own time.

RIP Nicolas Roeg; his films could be disturbing but they were certainly interesting.

RIP Rutger Hauer. He has passed away in the same year as his character died in Blade Runner: that's taking Life Imitates Art to another level.

I thought he already died in the movie Bladerunner.  That sure was a good movie.  I have it on laserdisk if that's useful.

Oh, I totally missed that! Earlier today I watched his Blade Runner death scene again, to make sure that I quoted his line accurately. So incredibly powerful. I can think of worse things to have as one's legacy. It will be a long, long time before I'll be able to watch it without tearing up.

Last night I dreamed that one of my favourite musicians passed, and I work in a dark mood.

It was saddening to hear of his death. Odo was indeed a great character in my favourite Star Trek series.

R.I.P. Grant Imahara of MythBusters.

That's a real surprise and a great shame. He was always one of the best parts of a great cast on Mythbusters. He was the kind of person to aspire to be like, with his positive attitude and hard work.

NB he also built the skeleton-robot Geoff on the (funny and missed) Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Worth mentioning in a post as well: he was also in the very well made Star Trek fan series Star Trek Continues:

I'd be interested to know what you think of it, maybe in the Star Trek thread.. I won't say too much more about it except to emphasize that it has high production values, and that it makes a broad effort to stay true to the style, writing, etc. of TOS. Grant Imahara does a fine job too.

The American broadcast version, 8th Man, provided endless hours of entertainment to this geeky little kid back in the '60s when he wasn't tinkering with every electrical and mechanical device he could access.  The only detail I can remember from the show is that he had a spare brain in his left shoulder. :)

That is sad to hear; I think he will always be the 'Best Bond' but was much more than just that one role.
