Checked my childhood memories with Mum tonight.

It was Fenella who was the unmissable presence at a winter drinks party held at Barry (Van der Velde) and Judith Foster’s Wimbledon house. I tagged along with my parents

I can still feel her physical projection and a voice that overawed a room full of stage folk.
Sad that she and the Fosters have gone.

Tony Joe White dead at 75. Great artist. I have his latest album ( mainly Blues). Wrote: Rainy night in Georgia, Polk Salad Annie, Steamy Windows and many others. So sad.


#720

One of his last performances.


#721

One voice that few may have heard of, but that shaped many voices that we do hear.

#723

Jesus, no age is it? RIP


#724

RIP Hal (Douglas Rain)

The computer was called HAL as it is 1 letter away from IBM, and IBM refused to allow Kubrick to use their name.

Finally, the pod bay doors are opened

Stan Lee has died


#728

Glad he got to see his creations meet a wider younger audience on the big screen, and of course all the Netflix stuff that is out there.

Heuristic ALgorithmic.

But, yeah, Arthur C Clarke made that up to fit.


#731

He’ll come back to life with half the rest of the population in the next Avengers movie


#732

I hope they’ve filmed his cameo.


#733

Stan Lee, the creative genius who made his heroes imperfect and flawed, and had them fight injustice and intolerance as much as just plain old villains. RIP and excelsior.


#734

Apparently they have filmed numerous cameos, so he will continue appearing for quite a while.


#735

That’s good news.
