Paddington creator Michael Bond dies aged 91 :(

The first series of books I can actually remember seeking out myself at our local library as a child and eagerly devouring, one of my formative experiences growing up.

RIP.

Damn. Back when Film(insert date here) was worth watching, I used his opinion as a benchmark for whether many a film was worth the entrance fee. Some of his unfavourable reviews were hilarious.
R I P Barry. :(

Anyone of my generation (38) would remember the Pink Windmill, of Rod Hull and Emu fame.

Well, Grotbags is the latest figure from my childhood to pass away:

Shame. He might have made a whole bunch of crap movies but he's still the guy that made Night and it's still an incredible film that I have so much love for.

Maybe he'll rise from the grave?

Anyone of my generation remember Space 1999? Bit camp & corny but typical 70's scifi fun.

He will always be Commander Koenig (I hope I remembered that correctly). My friend had one of the eagles that actually fired missiles, but I had the MIllenium falcon so I won.

I think this is one we've been expecting for years, but it's no less sad.

I was sure he had a pact with the devil.
Or a portrait hidden in his attic.

Hell, sliced bread is only 11 years older than his career, which started in 1939.

Thought he was a bit of an arse but fair play to him he gained a "special place" in the "hearts of the public".

Rip.
