Oh dear, how very sad.

 

A fantastic comedy actor who I think of just about every time I pick a brush up. 

 

RIP Trig.

Damn shame about Trigger, he was brilliant.

Rodney: 'Trig why do you always call me Dave? My name is Rodney'

Trigger: 'So what's Dave, a sort of nickname?'

Edit: rather bizarrely I have just turned on the radio and it was playing Bohemian Rhapsody. But the first line as it came on was...'trigger now he's dead'. There must be a tv series in that.!

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Was going to post that. He was quite a character. I saw him on TV when I was living in Japan. Im not sure younger japanese generations were quite sure what to make of him.

It would have been good if he went on the Japanese version of I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

Aye. It'd be the longest running TV show ever. 40 odd years! ;)

As you might expect, there seems to be some spooky goings on in the obituary thread.

We've just had two posts with the word "running" in them and then a post announcing the death of Chris Chataway.

Be afraid....

Pete Seeger.
Incredible influence on the folk scene on both sides of the Atlantic.
As a teenager I was a huge fan.

Grand Old Man of the folk movement.

 

He was, however, seriously wrong about Dylan going electric. I'm sure he came to realise this.

 

Either way, his legacy in the USA is immense.

 

 

RIP Pete.

RIP Pete.

Seeger was an iconic folk singer, very ably supported by the Weavers, who illustrated that the best songs are those that convey the simplest message.

 

But on the subject of being seriously wrong, throughout most of his life he was a dedicated Stalinist, who only curtailed his admiration for Uncle Joe late in his life.

 

From 1939 to 1941, after the Molotov-Von Ribbentrop pact, at Stalin's bidding he devoted himself to performances aimed at trying to persuade the USA not to enter the war.

 

“I apologise for once believing Stalin was just a hard driver, not a supremely cruel dictator," he said in 1994.

RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Brilliant actor.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
