I was in the office at the day job, so I had to miss it.

George Romero is dead.

Martin Landau is dead.

The first woman to play the Doctor has been introduced as such to the worlds.

Seems like a day for milestones in science fiction and fantasy, yes?

Good morning, and good luck.

1. As an exploration of depictions of the divine to start this morning, and of indigenous perceptions of divinity...

I knew him going back to the Usenet days on rec.arts.comics.* and I found out yesterday that he'd died over the weekend.

Still taking that news in, to be honest. And I'm still holding something for a friend of his, and we never got around to setting the delivery up.

Well, there went that hope for this hockey season.

More later, if I can focus the brain and energy enough after work tonight.

They've got a new user agreement in place, a "non-valid" English translation of the Russian version, which SUP is claiming is the only valid version now.

So I'm done with LJ.

And we've lost Chuck Berry and Berni Wrightson so far this weekend, among many others whose lives I know far less of.

Update 19 March 2017: Add Jimmy Breslin to that list. :-(

We lost the man who gave us the Vinyl Cafe stories today.

I said he was the most ruthless storyteller we've yet produced as a country, and I stand by that. It was never a complaint, and I am glad to have been able to thank him via Canada Post while I still had the chance for all of that.

I miss him anyway.

He got me thinking about religion and spirituality in different ways.

And now he's gone.
