This is extremely creepy for me. I met a real actor on IMDb a few days before the closing and at first he joked to me that he was Bill Paxton...... and now this happens.

I have a terrible feeling the celebrity death train is going to keep going along. I mean I know celebs die every year. But it just seems so high profile as of late.

There's zero secret to it, and it's not going to stop now or in our life time, only will it escalate.

It's just that we've finally come to the age where major pop culture items we grew up with are old enough to have persons involved in them dying of natural or other causes. By the end of 20th century, the spectrum of pop culture was infinitely larger than at the start or even half way through the century. There are billion more pop culture celebrities and famous people now than there were in the 1930's or 1970's or whenever, further enforced by wide reach of the modern media. Globalization has wide range effects.

Rene Preval, who led Haiti though the devestating 2010 earthquake, has died at the age of 74.

He's the only democratically elected President of Haiti to serve 2 terms.

Later this month it will be 8 years since my beautiful Tortoiseshell cat, Chloe, passed away. She was 14. Last month marked 6 years since my dog, Hazel, died, at age 15 1/2.

Yeah, I'm doing fine, but seeing old photos makes me feel a bit sad sometimes. I've got Hazel and Chloe's names tattooed on my leg.

This one happened 6 days ago, but I'm only learned this now and I'm a bit sad.
Beloved host of Turner Classic Movies, Robert Osborne died at the age of 84. He was always warm, cheerful and pleasant whenever he hosted.

Yesterday, Joni Sledge, a member of the band Sister Sledge (We Are Family) died yesterday at the age of 60.

Did he record the dialogue for Toy Story 4 already, or will we get film without him?

Unfortunately, I don't know myself, and there don't appear to be any official film news outlets that support whether he recorded his lines or not. There was something about Tom Hanks doing a bit of voice recording in 2015, but little else since then. I was under the impression that they had the script written and lines recorded in advance, but put it on hold to promote Incredibles 2. For now, we should wait for an official statement from Disney.

Yes probably better to wait than speculate, shouldn't take too long.

It would be amazing if that film could live up to the expectations. Again. They seem to have rare magic touch with that one

Anyway RIP for Don. I see he was in on episode of Addams Family, have to watch that again as I hadn't noticed

Wow that's incredibly sad. Obviously I don't know anything, but I doubt they have recorded something. Sad

Slinky was replaced. But it's always a really sensitive and rough pill to swallow when they do that (for myself anyway).

Anyway I'm glad he lived a long and very eventful life. And he entertained a lot of people. Many don't make it to 90.

Charlie Murphy dead at 57

Charlie Murphy, Eddie's older brother, and a very successful and popular stand-up comedian in his own right has died ... TMZ has learned.
According to Charlie's manager, he died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He'd been going undergoing chemotherapy. Family members tell us they're absolutely shocked because they thought he was getting better. 

Rip. Gonna be honest I didn't even know Eddie had a famous brother.
