    Learned today that Belgain comic book writer André-Paul Duchâteau, creator, with Tibet, of Ric Hochet (an investigative reporter whose investigations were a big part of the magazine Tintin when I was reading it, oh so many years ago) has passed away, aged 95.

    A very familiar name. 95 is a good age to go.

    A big lost for those of us that watched him in the Jackie Robinson movie '42' as well as the 'Black Panther.'

    RIP Chadwick Boseman, my son told me the news this morning and I am shocked. I had no idea he had been battling colon cancer.
    He had a promising career ahead of him, what a loss. RIP.

    Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed 4 years ago, meaning he filmed Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War & Avengers: Endgame while fighting his cancer. A true life hero. RIP Mr. Boseman. :-(

    And plenty of other non-Marvel films in between. He literally gave everything he had before he passed.

    This is shocking and very sad news. I can only assume only a small number of people close to him knew he was battling cancer.

    Such a young talented actor taken way too soon.

    Big fan of Boseman... he was great in everything, really liked 42 and Marshall. His gentle gentleman demeanor always came through. Was looking forward to seeing him in many films to come. So sad. It's going to be hard for a lot of kids who looked up to him as Black Panther. RIP.

    That is so sad I had no idea about his battle, Chadwick Boseman a very brave man and I find his courage inspiring. R.I.P.

    No one did. Except for maybe his family and close friends.

    And if this year wasn't crappy enough as it is, I've just learned that Joe Ruby, co-creator of Scooby-Doo, has passed away, aged 87 :

    Tom Seaver (aka. “The Franchise”, “Tom Terrific”, “The Master”) Hall of Fame, baseball pitcher has died at the age of 75.

    His death was not a total shock - as he had been battling dementia for several years – but it still hit be very hard tonight.

    Seaver was a major part of my childhood, and excluding my mother, perhaps the one person that I most looked up to when I was young. In short, Seaver was what I inspired to be: a success at what he did, a professional in how he approached his job, confident but not cocky about his talent, and full of life and spirit. I’ve never been one to have idols or heroes, but he was the exception.

    My thoughts are with his family.

    Well said, Dwayne. This one hit me on a gut level too as he was the first real star pitcher I remember growing up. I am a Reds fan and was thrilled when we got him in that infamous '77 trade (don't hate on me). My uncle got me a photo of him for my birthday that year.

    Still my all-time favorite pitcher to this day. Sadly, never got to meet him and I don't know if the autographs I have are authentic, but the memories will always live with me.

    One of the most famous belgian singers, Annie Cordy, has passed away, aged 92, from a heart attack :

    Thanks for posting your thoughts @BT3366. And no worries about being a Cincinnati Red’s fan 😊.

    The last couple of days have been tougher than I thought, and apparently for a lot of older New Yorkers as well – as the internet and newspapers here have been full of remembrances.

    Looking back, I think that a large part of my sadness comes down to what Tom Seaver represented and the ‘role’ that he occupied in my life. First ‘external’ joyous moment (well other than the Moon landing): the Mets winning in October 1969, first realization that things don’t last forever: the ‘Midnight Massacre’ of June 15th, 1977, first ‘life closure’: taking my mother to Tom Seaver day at Shea Stadium in July, 1988. What’s interesting is that all of the events that I listed occurred between the ages of 8 and 27 – in short, they paralleled the period when I was growing up and becoming established. And during those years, Seaver served as a kind of role model for me.

    On Monday, my thoughts will return to the latest NTTD trailer and other things Bond related, but for now…..

    Oh, thats terrible news. An unsung hero of the Bond franchise. I dont think he got enough praise.
    Looking at some of the 'Making of' docs on the films, he comes across as a very personable chap, with lots of stories to tell! John Glen brought him into the series , and describes in his book 'For My Eyes Only, that Arthur had a bit of a bad intro whenfirst introduced to Cubby, when he tripped over the carpet!

    Harald Are Lund, Norway s finest radio jockey for the last 50 years has passed away, aged 73. I used to tape his programs back in the 90s. Thanks for all the great music.
