Flamboyant Puerto Rican astrologer Walter Mercado dies at age 88.  He was well-known throughout all of Latin American and among Hispanics in the USA. My ex-wife used to watch him on TV.

In 2016, he predicted total destruction of the world if Trump became president: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/election/article91718662.html

In lieu of flowers, Lee's family asks that donations be made to The Hunger Project, a non-profit that aims to end world hunger by empowering women and establishing partnerships with local governments.

There's a tad bit of irony with this.  Still a sad situation for her friends and family.

RIP, Jake Burton Carpenter, founder of Burton Snowboards and really the guy that brought snowboarding into existence. He convinced Stratton Mountain to let him and his friends to ride there and the sport took off from there. Just a decent, chill guy who made a fortune and got to spend his life doing what he loved, dead at 65.

Cartoonist Gahan Wilson and actor Michael J. Pollard

:doublesadface:

Gahan Wilson gave me my first adult moment. Once i found my father's "special drawer", i rifled thru it regularly in search of new naughty mags and party records. Oh, the stolen moments of salacious surreptity but, to this day, i have never seen an image that shook my tree more than, in the second half of one of me Da's Playboys, a GW cartoon of a line of sad, fat, naked old men grimly climbing a children's slide that turned out to be a giant cheese grater. The slide was an inverted Progress of Man - the farther down, the less man there was - and, of course, a giant pile of shredded loser below. I was maybe 8yo and i knew this was hilarious but didn't know why. Stared at it over & over thru the years and am haunted by it still. Could not find the image on the innerwebs for y'all. You were grate, Mr. Wilson. RIP -

The only reason Michael J Pollard was popular was that there always seemed to be a similarly inexplicable, goofy, giggleshrugging guy in every pot circle of the 60s. RIP -

Gahan Wilson, B. Kliban, and Gary Larson - my top 3 cartoonists.  The first one that I really remember was in a National Lampoon - "Baby Eating Through the Centuries" was a several page comic book panel spread - take off of the Jonathon Swift's a Modest Proposal.

She had some great interview spots on the Star Trek collectors boxed DVD sets. IIRC she used her initials because no one thought women could write sci-fi back in the 60s (and before), so she didn't want it to be obvious she was a woman when getting credited for scripts.

Also the rapper Juice Wrld died at 21 years old.

Had a seizure getting off the plane in Chicago while walking in the airport. Strange story.

I have to imagine drug related. He was pretty dark and had lots of references to dying young, etc.

He's kind of a classic NY character actor. I assumed he died many years ago. I was surprised to learn he was married to both Linda Lavin and Jessica Walter.

It’s a very strange story.  The recent trend on Tik-Tok was to Juice Wrlds song Lucid Dreams and at one point in the song with water in their mouth they would shake their head like having a seizure, eyes rolled back and the water coming out of their mouth.  Then today he dies of a seizure

And he had the lyrics...

I just read he made a tweet a couple yrs ago.... My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years..then fake my death  

And it happened in a public airport but no pictures or video of it?  People who live near that airport said no sign or sound of ambulances the entire night.  Strange.

He did very, very well.  Seven years of DS9 starring status should have set him up for good.

And his name is based off of Tupac's Juice movie. Some believe Tupac is alive somewhere living on an island. :tinfoilhat:

Except on the news, here in Chicago, there was the 911 call recording.
