RIP Kevin Clark

Netflix threw me the trailer for School of Rock the other day and I was thinking, oh I should watch that again sometime, it’s a great movie. (It seems to have had a renaissance as of late?)

RIP, DeOndra Dixon

She was only 36, it’s such a damn shame. I feel so bad for the family.

Oh gosh this is so sad. I remember when he was a popular fancast for a whole lotta superheroes on Tumblr not so long ago. 35 is no age to die.

This is such a freaky thing to happen that I have to note it down here purely to state my disbelief… Last night I woke up with this crystal clear thought in my head: “Huh, what if Stan Lee dies TODAY?” And I thought nothing more of it, but now… reports are coming in that he’s dead. Coincidence, sure, but HOW?

(RIP Stan. :( )
