What a shitty day.

I worked with Bob Woolf back in the early 90s. What a gentleman he was. Great career in sports.

Nice memory you got there Frau Blucher...

Martin Landau never took a day off. He reminded me of Jack Lemon in that sense. Just like Jack, I loved his idiosyncratic mannerisms.

British arthouse distribution legend Pam Engel, Artificial Eye co-founder and more recently a major part of New Wave Films.

"The end of an era" is an appalling cliché, but I'm really struggling to think of anyone else who's been in the business for as long as she was. Everyone else that I dealt with 25-30 years ago is either dead, retired or packed it in for something saner, and she was a veteran even then.

That's very sad news for anyone who relies on such figures to actually get the films onto screens and eventually on a disc. I've no way of knowing but it perhaps seems telling that the shift from Artificial Eye to New Wave led to Artificial Eye becoming less interesting and risk taking with their acquisitions (and more into US films with bankable casts), whilst New Wave helped to continue a commitment to existing artists as well as pioneer another whole swathe of arthouse cinema. Hopefully they'll be able to keep on in that tradition.

Sad news. I met her a few times in the days when I went to press showings.

Trevor Baxter, British actor whose best-known role was as Professor Litefoot in the Doctor Who serial The Talons of Weng-Chiang, and reprised the character in spin-off audiobooks. He had an acting career on both TV and in the cinema of over fifty years.

That's terrible news. Don't really know too much about him but I hate hearing these guys committing suicide knowing that they have so many people around them. I know that sounds simplified but it's frustrating nonetheless.

Btw... Next week Linken Park was to play with Blink 182 here at CitiField billed as "Blinkin Park"

Can't say I've been a fan (not since maybe the debut album when I was 11, or whatever) - but this is very, very sad. I feel immensely for him just reading his biography and what he went through growing up, and this was just awful news to wake up to.

That is sad to hear. I'm not musically savvy but one of the best aspects of the first Transformers film was its great soundtrack album that included Linkin Park's What I've Done used over its final scene. Though of course the lyrics to that particular song now are rather uncomfortable.

If Pudsey the dog really did kill Pasolini, we wouldn't have got much out of him even when he was alive.
