Lawrence Ferlinghetti, American poet, activist and publisher, 101. Born in New York City in 1919, he served in WWII, including working in Japan in the aftermath of the Nagasaki atomic bombing, which helped to lead him to a lifetime of pacifist belief. He moved to San Francisco in 1951 where he lived for the rest of his life. His best known writing is probably his first poetry collection, A Coney Island of the Mind, but many of the works he published far outstripped his personal fame, notably Allen Ginsberg's Howl, which led to a celebrated obscenity case tried before the Supreme Court. It was published by his bookstore and press, City Lights, which may well be his greatest legacy.

My Facebook is currently overflowing with messages that Man-tat Ng died a couple of hours ago. Not a big surprised since he was rushed to ICU a couple of days ago and he was suffering from liver cancer.

With 170 acting credits he was a pillar of Hong Kong comedy cinema from the mid-70s to now (he still has a 2021 credit according to IMDb), rising to fame next to Stephen Chow. Internationally best known for his part of the football coach in Shaolin Soccer. Very funny guy that will be missed, RIP.

(for those who don't know Stephen Chow/Man-tat Ng apart, he's the one on the right)

I hate the contemporary porn industry (despite my advocacy for the "porno chic" era of narrative adult films), but Flynt was a cool guy in my book. He did so much for free speech advocacy and had a lifelong commitment to being a pain in right-wing asses. His passing has given me the urge to revisit The People vs. Larry Flynt sometime.
