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.

EDIT: And this is an interesting video about the influence of Linkin Park on many fan anime music videos.

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

I'm seeing that film this evening, it's playing as part of MoMA's current science fiction film exhibition.

‘Fabulous’ Flo Steinberg, Stan Lee's right hand at Marvel during their Silver Age and the only full time employee the company had during that era besides Stan. She was probably the most integral part of that company during that era behind the scenes.

His film career alone would be worth substantial recognition, and the fact that his cinematic work is diminutive compared to his stage contributions is stunning.

Jesus. Jeanne Moreau and Sam Shepard on the same day. Shamefully I’ve only seen a handful of Moreau’s performances but her role in La Notte is the one that stands out for me. Sam Shepard, just a super talented guy, his part in Days Of Heaven is what comes to mind first. Excellent performance. Miss these two heavyweights.

Well said. Two titans lost. I've had a difficult relationship with Jules and Jim (I just really find it kind of repugnant), but Moreau's performance is by far the standout aspect of it. And Paris, Texas is one of the most beautiful films ever written.

His Altman collaboration, Fool for Love, is phenomenal too. For me, it's the pinnacle of Altman's theater adaptations, a perfect marriage of film and theater.

I always felt like a young Sam Sheppard as Howard Hughes would have been a perfect role.

Anyone who loves theatre should have a copy of Shepard's collected plays. And Moreau was of course a legend of French post-War Cinema. Two greats gone, RIP indeed
