Bilbo didn’t die, he went off with the elves.
Back when I was in art school they loved to play the dance music of the day during class. One day, when everyone got the holiday dates mixed up myself and another lad turned up to class while everyone including the tutor was absent. He was in before me so I heard him play something over the speakers, it was Art Bell. I had never heard of him before. It was his Ghost to Ghost show.
I will forever remember that day in class it was the best 3 and a half hours there. Building my portfolio and listening to a guy phone up pretending to be a vampire but the description he gave was that of a werewolf lol. I listened to him when I could ever since and I sorely miss his input on life.
I always thought how blessed the truck drivers were listening to Art during their long haul trips through the deserts and mountains of America during the night.
The show he did about the death of his late wife was heartbreaking.
Coast to Coast.
Though he has had shows about the Paranormal.
I think Ghost to Ghost was his Halloween specials.
Carl Reiner, dead at 98.
Newsman and game show host Hugh Downs, dead at 99.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon died on June 19th 2020. I know him because he wrote one of my favorite books, "In the Shadow of the Wind". I wanted to read other works from him. He died too young.
Good writer. 56? Way too young.
Legendary composer Ennio Morricone passed away this morning. He was 91.
I know what I'm listening to all day now. Man, that makes me sad. But holy hell, what sounds he brought to us.
Charlie Daniels left for that great fiddle showdown at the hickory stump. He was 83 years old.
Outlets are reporting that Naya Rivera has been confirmed dead.
My partner at the time begged me to watch the show with her but it was never my thing, Santana quickly became my favourite. I don't know how anyone can watch that show now with all the tragedy around it, desperate stuff and a crying shame for her little'un.
Still 5 months of 2020 to go folks, it's been a hell of a ride thus far.
Hope the lassie is at peace.
Very sad news: Grant Imahara, of "Mythbusters" fame, died of a brain aneurysm, aged 49.
By all accounts, Grant Imahara was a nice, approachable dude with a passion for his work. From what others are saying about him, he really helped inspire many people to study engineering and science. He was an important part of the show and did a great job of keeping viewers engaged. He will be greatly missed. RIP, Grant.
I liked him the most of the assistants.
