Poet Mark Strand dead at eighty. When told his poems were too dark, he replied they were evenly lit.

RIP Bela Lugosi. Just heard this modern cover of the Bauhaus classic, not sure how I feel about it. It's not very scary.

That had me searching to see if Bela Lugosi had died recently.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76 (and other celebrity deaths)

Lugosi was born 20 years later than he actually was, but was a natural at playing characters much older than he. Having become typecast, his career dwindled into obscurity following a scandal involving morphine addiction. He died in a Hollywood nursing home at the age of 112. That's going on in a parallel universe right now.

Martin Landau's Oscar-winning performance as a dying Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood was a wonder to behold.

This is the good stuff:

Just watched Martin Landau playing twins on Columbo.

In case some of you didn't know, Columbo rules.

In other thread tie-ins, an episode of Columbo was one of the first things Spielberg directed.

Wait, that's a different thread. Oh well, call it a sub-forum tie-in.

Whenever I think of Cocker, I picture John Belushi spazzing out, instead. I can't help it.

Re: Joseph Heller still dead, still at 76 (and other celebrity deaths)

yeah just heard that in another thread. Narrated a lot of History Channel shows too. He was great on Gilmore Girls. For most of his life I thought he looked like a young Fred Gwynne.

Doing the math it makes sense, but I was surprised he was 82.
