Oh my lack of god, there’s been a lot of my favourite people dying this last two weeks…. Writer Terry Pratchett, Simpsons Co-Creator Sam Simon, Golden Age DC artist Irwin Hasen, and of course, two of the giants of Star Trek: Harve Bennett and Leonard Nimoy.
Enough feeling bad about this.
I’m not kidding. If you’re reading this on Saturday afternoon, come on down to the TRANZAC CLUB at 292 Brunswick Avenue, just south of Danforth, west of Spadina.
It’s ten bucks at the door (two Spock Fives!)
and the proceeds go to the Lung Association of Canada.
I promise an evening of illogic and joy.
Ty the Guy OUT!
Because Marvel eventually used every syllable in naming their various monsters…
…that purple monkey fellow up there is named “Grok”. He’s in the Marvel Wiki.
Fred Fredericks (Mandrake comic strip artist) also passed away this week. Lots of death.
It’s about 50/50 in the long run.
The Irish Wake is ALL about having a good time, and fondly remembering the departed.
I’m a Dirty Mick, so I should know!
Seems like this was in the same spirit. Congrats!
