This is now the official thread for posting "rest in peace" messages

Lemmy Kilmister 1945-2015
As a longtime metalhead, this is a kick to the nads.

Damn, that's a shame. I always assumed he was indestructible.

I always loved the guy's sense of humour. He never took himself too seriously, which is a rarity in the music business.

I never got into Motorhead but this guy was an icon.  Musicians dying seems to be going around.  Today John Bradbury the drummer from the Specials passed away.  Both were huge to their respective genres and both will be sorely missed.

I was a big fan seeing as how I listen to both kinds of music... hard rock and heavy metal, but let's not cry a  river here.  The guy made it to 70 and for the kind of life he lived that's a pretty good run.

He should've lived to 110 and just exploded on stage to end his final show.

He considered Motorhead to be a punk band.

For the last (several to many) years, he'd be almost always seen at the Rainbow bar, playing touchscreen games.  I heard that the machine was recently moved to his house down the block to enjoy at home as he couldn't make it to the Rainbow.  That's mighy nice of them.

Jack & Coke was his drink of choice.  I think we can all find time to enjoy at least one in the next night or two.

Just heard he died yesterday.

Just finished listening to his new album too.

It's a surreal feeling right now.

Someone was telling me out of all the billions and billions of years, we were lucky enough to pick the same period as David Bowie.

It has truly been a privilege.

Gonna miss that guy.  Loved it when he used to turn into a golden Eagle at parties.  The guild will never be the same again. 

Seriously though... it really sucks, but then again you forget how old they guys are now.  He was nearly 70!  Bowie was grandpa aged.

Sure, Sure... but I intend to live forever.  I figure if I can hold out for another 30 years or so they can put me in a robot or something. 


I look for George Lucas to die next.  Wes Craven caught me off guard, but it seems like whenever these directors start slowing down and/or give up all their pet projects, they die soon after.

Labyrinth is great.  Bowie was perfect in that.   

 He had some good songs,  a unique singing voice, and a real star-power presence about him.

 Very sad news.

I keep expecting it, yet somehow he continues to live. It's a bit suspicious...

Everybody knows that he sold his soul to the devil in the 50s for a magical set of prescription aviator glasses that allow him to live forever.  Actually Jack Kirby sold his soul and then Stan totally stole the glasses and took credit.  ;)

Here's something to think about..something that I've brought up to friends a few times in recent years.

Right now, there aren't too many bands that have lost all of their original line-up.  (I can think of maybe 2)

It's only a matter of time, and not much now, that there will be no more 'living members' of many classic rock bands....Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Queen, etc..

The good news is, we can still enjoy the music when they're gone.

It happened a few days ago, but former professional wrestler "Iron" Mike Sharpe passed away. Mostly known from his WWF run in the 80's and 90's, he was billed as Canada's greatest athlete. He finally jobbed to the big man in the sky.

It happened a few days ago, but former professional wrestler "Iron" Mike Sharpe passed away. Mostly known from his WWF run in the 80's and 90's, he was billed as Canada's greatest athlete. He finally jobbed to the big man in the sky.


I remember him. He was one of those jobbers like Barry Horowitz or Lanny Poffo (Randy Savage's brother) who you actually knew by name.

Barry and Mike tagged a couple of times to form a super jobber team!

For a lot of us, he's one of those people that was always old during our entire lifetime. Somehow, though, I've always known that he was still alive. He made it further than most people.

RIP Abe.

not EXACTLY a celebrity, but Lex McAllister (a contestant on "the bachelor")  text'd a friend said she wanted to kill herself. upon going and checking in on her she had OD'd. took a bunch of prescription pills.

also


U.S. Supreme Court  Justice Antonin Scalia  was found dead in a texas resort... he had attended a private party at the resort. When he didn't show up to a breakfast the next morning, they sent some employee of the resort to check on him... employee found Scalia's body in his room.

I missed this one, but a few days ago, hardcore, high-flying, Japanese wrestling legend Hayabusa passed away at age 47. Before his injury sidelined (read: paralyzed) him, he was one of the greats.

Doris Roberts was already posted.  No points for you today.

If we had separate threads for each death this important information would be much easier to manage.

Can't chew gum and walk at the same time eh?   ::)  Sucks to be you,

So what are they going to put on his headstone? Formally, the formally guy called Prince?

Prince looked nearly skeletal in that picture of him, me thinks he got cancer and pneumonia finished him off.  You herd, herd, herd..heard it here first.

Prince doesn't particularly surprise me.  He looked like a sickly little man that could get blown away by a stiff breeze 30 years ago. 

Chyna either.  Hers is a bit sadder for me because she fell on hard times due to the way HHH got her booted from the company.  I always hoped at one point she would pull her act together and have another run in the WWE worthy of the legend that she is.  She's still not in the WWE hall of fame btw..... frikkin Sunny is in the WWE hall of fame... the woman who's job was to stand in the corner and look pretty.

He had a lot of hits but he was also a first class nut.  Like Michael Jackson level crazy.  Google up Kevin Smith's interactions with Prince.

I don't really agree with his assessment that the reason she isn't in there is because they can't trust her on stage.  They inducted the Ultimate Warrior and even when he was on good terms with the company he was a lunatic and they never knew what he was going to say.  All sources point to HHH, Stephanie, X-Pac and all the weirdness that revolved around their tangled relationships with each other.

The video pretty much came out in response to him having just heard the news. I don't think he stopped to think about anything before just saying it. I do think he's right that they'll finally induct her postmortem.

Prince was pretty awesome, remember seeing him on the Purple Rain tour in St Paul in 1984, quite the show.  Sheila E. opening and her drum stuff was pretty fun as well.

I finally watched that Kevin Smith story after hearing about it for years.  Was it supposed to be funny?  I generally only believe 10% of what he says anyway but even if that was 100% true....?  He was hired to do a job and got offended that he wasn't asked to do anything besides what he was hired for?  Prince wears the outfits he was known for wearing?  An active Jehovah's Witness proselytizes?   

Seemed like he'd toss out a "---smurfing--- prince" every time the story dragged and every beta in the crowd would applaud enthusiastically.

People live some very dull lives.....

While most of us don't know her, crime writer Michelle McNamara, wife of Patton Oswalt, and mother of their 7 year-old daughter Alice, has passed away at 46.
I've always enjoyed Patton's work, and have followed the guy on social media for over a decade, so hearing this news is heartbreaking.

Actor Ron Lester has died of kidney and liver failure at age 45.

http://www.thewrap.com/ron-lester-star-of-varsity-blues-dies-at-45/

I liked him as Billy Bob in Varsity Blues, then even more as Reggie Ray in Not Another Teen Movie, where he parodied his own character. He also turned up in a few Freaks and Geeks episodes. Other than dropping a ton of weight several years ago, I don't know what he's been up to.

He had in in neutral, not in park.  So this isn't the typical Jeep sliding out of park and squishing you scenario.  Also Anton's driveway was a steep slope.

Either he was late getting to rehearsals and forgot to open the gates and jumped out of his jeep, without engaging the parking brake fully, or the hand brake failed completely.

We end up doing dumb things when we are late and rushing, and I think this is what happened.  Sad, unfortunate and a lesson for us all.

I know I won't be enjoying the next Star Trek film.

There is a recall out on those Jeeps because you cannot easily tell if you have it in park or not.  So it may not have been his fault. 

In any case, it sucks.  I enjoyed his performances as Chekov

"The affected vehicles, which also include 2012-14 Dodge Chargers and Chrysler 300s, use an unconventional lever to shift the automatic transmission. Instead of moving to a different position with each gear, the lever returns to a center position. The driver must look at the shifter to make sure the proper gear is selected."

That's probably just about the dumbest design ever.

I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 sport with the as mentioned "unconventional lever" shifter. As far as i could have seen... this really shouldn't have been an issue with how the electonic ebrake/parking brake system is set up now. (his vehicle must have the regular kind of manually actuated parking brake system... or a system that needs software update to alter it's behaviour.)

the activation system I have consists of a toggle switch that you can pull up to activate, or push down into the panel to deactivate. (similar to newer power window switches)

with my car, if the door is opened and the shift lever is in anything but park, (reverse, neutral, drive, or sport mode) the emergency park brake AUTOMATICALLY activates as soon as the door is opened. i've never tried this at speed, but if you're rolling and you open the door it does stop you.

if the door is opened first and the lever is actuated from park, the parking brake will AUTOMATICALLY activate.

it can be manually overridden again after it activates. (for instance if you are trying to look out under the door to line up with some car ramps) simply push the button down.

other features of said parking brake include... if it's activated manually while in drive mode, it will lock the brakes down, but will automatically deactivate when you press on the gas. (i assume for steep hill starts)

For burnout mode, (I believe only available on the sport model) you have to pull and hold up the switch for the brake. Start your burnout and release the switch lever (only need to hold the first few seconds) then the rear brakes will stay on until you depress the switch at which time the brakes release.


as for the gear selection system, Mine is a interlocked detent rotary switch. not an up down type selection. you must have the brake applied to rotate the switch from park. each gear selection has it's own detent.

once into the "moving" gears they can be freely switched between the gears, reverse.. neutral.. drive without pressing the brake. vehicle movement is monitored and if the speed is too high to shift (for instance drive to reverse while still moving) the selector WILL move there, but the transmission will not shift to the selected gear to prevent damage. if this interlock has activated you must stop, shift to park and then back to gear again.

as it sits...it's a good system. it truly is, really, idiot proof.

I believe quite honestly his death could have been prevented with a simple system update. Period.

P.S.

If you don't know, you can simply call the dealership service department anytime and give them your VIN... they will tell you over the phone if you have outstanding recalls that need to be done. recalls regardless of age are done free of charge. I just got a recall done for a 2008 nissan with like 250,000 on it for a suspension spring issue. replaced both front springs and didn't cost me a penny.

so do it. do it. do it now. don't get your ass run over. call and find out if you have a recall. get it fixed before it kills you.

When the design of a shifter isn't "you move to position x and it shifts to gear x" then it's a design flaw.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

When the design of a shifter isn't "you move to position x and it shifts to gear x" then it's a design flaw.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it. 

but it does. unless you are trying to do something you shouldn't, then no, it doesn't. (for obvious reasons.) the aforementioned toggle shifter that  was used on some of the 2012 to 2014 300's is an exception. it was only used with one particular transmission/engine combo (not on all models)  since 2015 model year they have been changed to the rotary style knob. I haven't used that specific shift system before, but i'm pretty sure if you are stopped and want to put it in park, you could just hold the leaver up for a few seconds and it would default to park. while yes it's not a kerchunk okay we are here in this gear and have a positive stop system to ensure we are in park or drive or whatever kind of system, the onus is still on the operator to ensure their car is secure before leaving it. Much the same way I wouldn't place a running lawnmower on a hill and walk away.

Idiot proof something, and the world builds a better idiot. By all this idiot proof logic I suppose a column shifter that doesn't have a big spring attached to the dashboard to pull the leaver back to park if you take your hand off it... has a design flaw because it can be left in gear. I suppose a door that doesn't have a pulley system attached to it to pull the door closed when you sit in the seat has a design flaw, since you could leave the door open and fall out. I mean how far do you go to make something safe enough where the most lazy and inept person on the planet couldn't possibly kill themselves with this. Do you want to get out of your car and go... or do you want to do a 47 step vehicle movement interlock procedure so that the car knows damn well you are good and ready to get out?

The point i'm trying to get at is, Anton put his car in X when it should have been in Y... or thought he put it in X when he actually didn't. This isn't the vehicles fault. it doesn't matter what car on the planet you drive manual, automatic, leaver, shifter, or knob. car, truck, motorcycle or bulldozer.. if you leave it in drive, neutral, or reverse and you get out... it's probably going to run you over.  :dunno

I don't feel this is the fault of the vehicle manufacturer. Yes, An underestimation of how lazy, retarded, and inept people can be, showed a situation could occur where this could happen... but it was identified and a fix was put in place to prevent exactly this scenario.

Now, if Anton had taken his vehicle in to have the fix applied...he'd still be alive, regardless of accidentally leaving the vehicle in gear/being lazy/being stupid.

 :dunno

cause it's being made out that it was because an unsafe vehicle did this. vehicles are inherently unsafe machines, no different from a power saw. Let your guard down for one second and your done. Becoming complacent when operating a dangerous ANYTHING can kill you.

Anton was either an idiot who didn't place his vehicle in park before getting out, or he accidentally placed it into gear when he intended not to. i'd like to think the latter, but Americans (sorry) tend to fall into the former category.

either of these scenarios wouldn't have mattered had he done the recall. His death was 100% preventable by either paying due attention and making sure his vehicle was in park before getting out, or if he had done the recall fix on his vehicle, been negligent and STILL manage to come out alive.

his death is 100% senseless and i'm sure 100% brutally painful the whole time he was trapped. It pisses me off that it had to happen because it was with absolute certainty... preventable.

I certainly was preventable.... if the car had been designed properly there would have been no confusion... if it was built well there would have been no recall to worry about.

Sorry man but you are on the wrong side of this argument.   Because automobiles are very dangerous machines they have to be designed so even stupid people, who unfortunately still have to drive here in the USA, can work the controls. 

My mom bought a brand new Taurus in 2013... there have been FIVE recalls on the stupid thing.  She also couldn't get some of them fixed for some time because Ford was either backed up doing all the recalls, or they couldn't get the part(s) in because, again there are so many recalls. 

Considering how extremely hectic an actor's schedule can be I can absolutely see him forgetting or not bothering with the recall.  My mom have to wait SIX MONTHS to get one of them fixed and she was extremely diligent about staying on top of it.

I thought Garry Marshall already died.  So now I'm sad all over again.

Probably his best on screen performance was in A League of Our Own.... his daughter's film.  RIP Mr. Harvey.

He was one of my most favorite actors.  The film I remember him most in was S.O.B.  anything he touched either in film or TV was brilliant.

I wasn't aware of his sickness and was shocked to hear of his passing.   2016 has to be the worse year for celebrity deaths.
Thank God I am me.

Damn. I didn't see that coming. She seemed pretty healthy last time I saw her on TV.

2016 has been a really crappy year for celebrity deaths.

I met her mother, Debbie Reynolds several years ago calling herself princess Leia's mommy.  Which struck me as odd, as she was a bigger star than her daughter.  I cant begin to think what she is going through right now.  So very sad.  Yet a book tour, filiming two movies will take a toll on anyone.  She was no young kid.  Makes you think though.

Who is next?  Only a few days left until 2017.....
Thank God I am me.

Story on George Michael has changed about five times but it was clearly an overdose.  I think it's ultimately going to be the same for Carrie Fisher.

Wow.  Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.  Debbie Reynolds gone too.  I figured she would have some sort of breakdown, but a stroke?  ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---!  Hurry up and let's get 2016 over with, before someone else kicks it too.
Thank God I am me.

R.I.P. Mike Ilitch Not a major celeb but very sad news for Detroit and Michigan as a whole. Owner of the Tigers, Red Wings, and Little Caesars Pizza. A big reason for the resurgence of the rebuilding of Metro Detroit he loved Motown he did lots for the community and prolly lots more that never got publicized

R.I.P. Alan Rickman, David Bowie and Carrie Fisher!!! :'(You were all amazing actors. I love the iconic roles you played, how you portrayed your characters: Severus Snape, Jareth and Princess Leia will remain as you showed them in my mind. 
Life is great. It's full of surprises!
