Just about the most poignant thing I've ever seen on YouTube. I could barely take it, even BEFORE he died.

Cocksucker Blues is a great immersive doc about a Rolling Stone tour. Frank has made some shorts also worth checking out.

Pretty much shaken up to hear the Muffs' Kim Shattuck has died. She was a friend, though I hadn't seen her or exchanged messages with her in awhile. I even used to play Scrabble with her on Facebook! I saw her perform multiple times, including one time with her earlier band the Pandoras. And yet she hid her sickness from me and almost everyone else.

If you need a movie connection, one of the Muffs' more visible tracks was their "Kids in America" cover for the Clueless film.

We all missed the death of Yannick Bellon. She died June 2nd at the age of 95.

Image

She was a notable arthouse director from the post New Wave era in France, standout works being her debut Somewhere, Someone (1972) and Nevermore, Forever (1976). I also see Rape of Love (1978) referenced as an important work, but I am yet to see it. Unfortunately only these 3 films are currently subtitled in English, even her collaboration with Marker seems to have received much love.

While her death was missed here, it was mentioned in the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/obit ... -dead.html

-

I found out about her death by accident, spotting her name as the editor of the 1947 documentary Paris mil neuf cent / Paris 1900 (which I just finished). It confused me as her debut film made me believe she would be younger. A closer look revealed two early shorts I was not aware of. Too bad it took her as long as it did to produce her first feature, but exciting that there are many more films from her to discover as they become available in the future.

Karen Pendleton Dies: Original Mouseketeer On Disney’s ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ Was 73

Karen Pendleton, one original Mouseketeers from The Mickey Mouse Club in the 1950s, died Sunday of a heart attack in Fresno, CA. She was 73. Author and Disney historian Lorraine Santoli announced the news today.

Known for her shoulder-length blond curls, Pendleton was among the youngest of the original Mouseketeers. She appeared on The Mickey Mouse Club during its entire first run from 1955-59, one of only nine to do so among a regularly changing cast. She famously was paired with Carl “Cubby” O’Brien in the episode-closing “Now it’s time to say goodbye” song. Because of their tender ages, Pendleton and O’Brien originally were “Meeseketeers.” Both were part of what was referred to as the “Red Team” of Mouseketeers, which included Annette Funicello.

Robert Forster is a big loss. I saw him in 8 movies, and I imagine he'll be best remembered for his great performance in Jackie Brown. But he was also great in the most recent season of Twin Peaks.

Robert Forster was great. I just re-watched Jackie Brown about a month back, and it’s still the best thing Tarantino’s done, in my book. And Forster’s performance is terrific. Agreed with blocho about him in the new Twin Peaks...especially loved that scene with him talking to Michael Cera’s weird Marlon Brando-impression character, haha. “May the road rise up to meet your wheels”.

How many dead people are in the last Twin Peaks cast now? Forster, Miguel Ferrer, Catherine Coulson, Peggy Lipton, Harry Dean Stanton...it's quite a few for a two-year-old show, isn't it? Anyone else?

My mother, October 14 1933 - October 14 2019. We thought it poetic to take the tubes out on your birthday, mom. It was the first sunny day in several in October, a beautiful fall day - maybe like the one you were born on in Ohio, 86 years ago? I don't know and there's nobody left who could remember it to ask anymore. You gave me my love of reading and books, which led to me wanting to be an English major, which led me to the University I went to, where in the first year I discovered the "art of film" in Kurosawa, which led to a lifelong obsession. And so much more.

Thank you, Rest in Peace. You've earned it.

Southeastern. I think the birth certificate reads "Lower Salem" which is I believe just a township - if there's a town center there it probably has like 7 houses now. Closest city of any size at all is Marietta, about 25 miles (but most of an hour driving time) away.

Awww :rip: What a lovely tribute.

I've heard of a Salem, Ohio, but not a Lower Salem. My Ohio birth certificate doesn't list the city I was born in on the line for place of birth. It neglected to put the numbers of the address (also no mention of zip code) and didn't put a space between two words (when there is enough room to put a space) but then it put a space before the street acronym. This was back in 1993.
