John McAfee wait?  Hearing he was found dead in his cell an hour after Spain agreed to send him to the US.....NOT CONFIRMED.

Crazy. Epstein-level stuff?

Oddly, I looked him up earlier today to see what he had been up to (was comparing Michael Saylor to him in my head).

John McAfee @officialmcafee · Nov 30, 2019

Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: "We're coming for you McAfee! We're going to kill yourself". I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn't. I was whackd. Check my right arm.

With all the totally insane things the guy did, it wouldn’t surprise me if he posted that and then killed himself to try to frame the US.

Some of the other crazy stuff he was alleged to have done:

-Did a ton of drugs, some of them homemade

-Killed someone

-Tried to start his own private military

-Started a sex cult that involved women pooping on him through a hammock

-Had sex with a whale

Sounds like a typical Friday night to me.

Who here hasn't rolled up on a fatty?  I'm sure Rosie O'Donnell is happy he's not dropping names.

It just occurred to me that this guy seemed to be everywhere for years and now not a peep.  

#1 Suspect IMO

I genuinely hope local NYC street artist Hash Halper is RIP. We saw him just about a month ago doing his sidewalk hearts in front of our building. Daughter and i always love seeing those in the neighborhood, and while Id seen him doing them a number of times, this was the first time I stopped to thank him and tell him how much we both loved what he was doing. :(

Hes deceased. Jumped off Brooklyn Bridge. His life didnt sound too peaceful in spite of the hearts... So I hope hes found some now.

Fwiw, i fixed the post so that it links the article in the NYTimes about him.

Ugh...rip Mickey Muenning, influential architect based out of Big Sur.

A gb from college worked for him right out of school...got married in Big Sur. I went to her wedding and stayed in Mickey's daughter's house on a ridge overlooking the ocean that he designed with all found/reclaimed material (old railroad bridge truss, wine bottles, etc), with an outdoor toilet with the same view. Saw him and his magestic eyebrows walkimg around NYC a bunch of years back and had a brief chat.

Didnt love everything he did (although i did love a lot of it...especially the Post Ranch Inn), but respected the heck out of him for flat out going for it every time. And he led the life I had always dreamed of living- small town architect doing big things.

Rip hippie gnome elf.

Huh. 99.99% of architects are doing nothing like this (why i respect him so much). Seems an odd reason to not go with it. And dont get me wrong...there are a LOT of excellent reasons to not fo with it, so you dodged bullets.

RIP Rick Laird, bassist for Mahavishnu  Orchestra.  Also was house bassist at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and toured with Chick Corea and Stan Getz. 

Attending a midnight concert of jazz violinist Michael White, Alice Coltrane then Mahavishnu Orchestra at the NEConservatory with the love of my life in the winter of 1972 was the most transported i've ever been by an evening of music. Thank you - RIP

RIP director Richard Donner(Superman, Lethal Weapon, Goonies, Ladyhawke among others).

Richard Donner very nearly drew me into a life of crime.

Just after i moved to New Mexico, a bunch of the hippies in my commune (who'd discovered the area crewing on Roeg/Bowie's Man Who Fell to Earth) got jobs on the earthquake scene in Superman - the most expensive scene in movie history at the time - shot S of Quemado, NM. They invited me to come with them on shooting day. With a million-dollar price tag, there were no do-overs, so the coverage was impressive (though nowhere as impressive as the construction done earlier to create the illusion of the earth opening up along a line of depth charges, my pals told me). I counted eight set-ups from handhelds to nests nearly a mile away. Though i couldnt see enough to say, the shot seemingly went off without a hitch and everybody partied like goons in celebration of their achievement.

Me and a crewgal were sauntering around the periphery, tugging on our tequila & beers & invisible lines between us, when a pickup truck pulled up to a trailer we were passing.

"What's that?"

"Stock from the shoot"

As i watched the operator load film cans into this trailer and drive away, my devious nature sprang to work.

"That's the film of the earthquake scene?"

"Ya. C'm'ere"

We looked in the open door of the trailer to see a single person whom i could have easily overwhelmed, with or without my friends co-operation, inventorying the stock and we were far enough from the partyheads to probably get back to my car unnoticed. I pointed out to my companion that there was essentially a million dollars sitting on that counter, virtually unprotected.

"Ya", she smiled.

In the movie i've made in my head of that moment, we almost went for it and i turned to reconsider our scruples 3-4 times before we got back to the crowd. Could've ransomed it for a quarter mil, easy - a fair piece of change in 1977.

RIP, Mr Donner.

I remember in my sitcom days, after filming the show in front of the audience on a Friday night, we'd load the film reels into some PA's trunk (4 cameras, at least three reels per camera, to capture whatever mundane hijinks the writers had come up with for that week) and that PA would drive the film to Fotokem or Deluxe or whatever to get processed over the weekend. But one weekend, our PA had his mind more focused on his upcoming trip to Vegas than the job. The lab called the UPM at like 3 in the morning asking if the reels were going to show up overnight or what... and the UPM had already been asleep thinking that his night was done. 

It was some frantic paging and an all-out search in two states for that PA and the million-dollars-plus worth of celluloid he forgot he was hauling before the desert heat melted it in some casino parking lot. 

Next week and every week after an additional union Transportation Driver was kept on duty effectively eight extra hours to just sit around and do nothing all day other than be responsible enough to be present at wrap to drive the exposed film four miles and unload it. Pretty good gig if you could get it.
