Juan Joya Borja "El risitas" died today at 65 due to a long ilness

you probably will recognice him as the spanish laught guy meme.. he was a comedian and actor .. despite the stupid of his stories his hysterical laught was so contagious that it was imposible to not fall into it..  he was utterly famous in spain in 2000-2001 and weirdly became more widelly as the memes using one of his videos became wide spread..

I just heard that this guy passed away. And I can recommend his book, especially if you're into the history of the Apollo space program.

I hadn't even heard that he had passed until I saw your post.

The man flew to the moon and back; you'd think that his passing would at least have made the news.  :(

Shit! Shit shit shit. I never looked and had no idea he was on twitter :(

But thanks for letting me know so I can at least look, assuming his social media accounts weren't nuked.

I was growing up during Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. Reading his book, and those from Chris Kraft and Gene Kranz gave me a much better idea what had been going on behind the scenes. The last time I visited the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, I had the opportunity to literally put my hands on some of the consoles used in the flight centers back then. Like others, I'm drawn to artifacts...I like to feel history viscerally.

:(

Saw that a few minutes ago. Man, that sucks. I know that a lot of people trash on ZZ, and I wouldn't deny that they phoned in more than a few songs, but the sound and the energy just flat-out jammed.

He lives on in the legacy of his music.

Time marches on :-/

At some point in life, you wonder which of the icons you admire will show up in an obituary, and which might outlive you...I'm putting my money on Keith Richards. :)

RIP Norm Macdonald. I was a big fan of his comedy. Hitler's Dog was IMO the best standup special in recent memory. He also did some great voiceover work. He was great as Death on Family Guy, Yaphit on the Orville and Pigeon on Mike Tyson Mysteries.

"I looked in the mirror the other day and I say to my wife, 'Honey, when I look in the mirror, all I see is a fat, ugly, old man, and I need you to give me a compliment'. 'Alright, then', she says, 'your eyesight is damn near perfect!'"
