Cohen did most of the work for his last album "You Want It Darker" (released end of october) in his home living room, e-mailing audio files to his partners for processing. Guy was a trooper right until the end.

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.

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.....

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.
