That's Ang Lee and he's not dead.

He's not very big, either.

Are you going to step on him?

Oh yeah? That's what they said about Bruce Banner in a movie Ang Lee directed. But you wouldn't want to make him angry...

You know, I sort of DO like him when he's angry.

Funny, I never liked a single Ang Lee movie, not Brokeback, certainly not Life of Pi and not Crouching nor Ice Storm.

Yes, Big Ang from Mob Wives has died after a quick bout with cancer. 

What about Val Kilmer? He has looked unwell for a while and seems to have some sort of apparatus covering a portion of his neck.

He had a tracheostomy which has been removed recently. http://www.people.com/article/val-kilmer-without-breathing-tube

What about Sense and Sensibility?

I don't think I saw that one.

Why "of all places"? Reality TV is big business. Obviously.

Well, sadly, this happened. According to TMZ: "To kill a mocking bird" Author & Pullitser Prize winner Nellie Harper Lee has passed away 89.

Damn, you're fast, I was just gonna post that....


joanne

She has her own thread. 

Sadly, the last few years were not without controversy and alleged elder abuse but I don't want to get into that.


joanne

well, Umberto Eco just died, aged 84. I haven't read further up the front page of 'Recently Changed' but I think it's only recently been announced. Very sad news.

Very sad.  Can't wait to see who's next.

I read that the last survivor from Treblinka Samuel Willenberg has just died, aged 93, in Israel. 

Another survivor, you're unlikely to have heard of him, also died in Australia:

Is Dick Cavett alive? Hmmm....he could be next.

I'll say Fidel Castro, although he really might be dead but we don't know it.

Miss New Jersey: Ex-Pageant Winner Cara McCollum Dies Following Car Crash, Family Says
McCollum died Monday after losing control of her car and crashing into a tree
last week, according to the Prayers for Cara Facebook page run by her
family. She won the pageant in 2013.


Was not wearing a seat belt, but donated her organs.

I saw Dick Cavett on something recently. He looked all right. A much older former TV host is Bob Barker.

Many tabloids I pass by seem to have Cher at deaths door. Don't know why.


ridski

Re: Cher... I can imagine she might blow a gasket with all the anger she's tweeting about Trump. 7 in the last 24 hours, with a combo of  question emoticons and CAPITALS RUNNING FAR TOO LONG AND ALL sorts of other things. But she's way better at tweets than I am.

Fidel's older brother just died. Not Raul, the other one.

Is she supporting Trumpy?

Yoko Ono is not in the best of health at the moment

I don't pay attention, as a rule, to posts from Australia or anywhere else that isn't here,( why the fukk are you posting here? What's wrong with you and your life? )   but she's out of the hospital and doing fine. I adore Yoko Ono. She's a one-of-a-kind artist and brilliant mind and wit. I hope she lives another 80 years.   If she was loved by John Lennon, for G-d's sake, she's special to me. 


Jasmo

You must be a Trump supporter. Maybe we should build an MOL (fire) wall. I personally appreciate our Australian posters and hope that they grace MOL for years to come. But  you are veering from your topic. Let's try to stay focused on death instead of foreigners cheese.

Answering the question: an invitation from my dear friend LL many many years ago. Which is why I've been here for about 15 or 16 years, after knowing her 20odd.  smile  

I invited marksierra for you.  rolleyes
