Irony is when somebody writes "Your an idiot."
If you spell the name as "Freemantle" because you think that's how it's spelled, you're not paying attention.

Chris Cornell, lead singer of grunge groups Audioslave and Soundgarden, died suddenly Wednesday night in Detroit while performing with Soundgarden. He was 52. More about it here.

:(

This one hurts.  He was an amazing vocalist who was a pioneer in developing grunge with Soundgarden.  His time in Audioslave was excellent too, and his performance of You Know My Name for the Casino Royale James Bond movie was splendid. 

Good bye, Chris.  Rest In Peace.

Peter Sallis, the voice of Wallace from the Wallace & Gromit animation series has passed away peacefully at the age of 96.

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/06/06/531690297/peter-sallis-of-wallace-and-gromit-fame-dies-at-96

I sure adored Wallace & Gromit when I was younger, and Sallis' voice was a wonderful fit for Wallace's character.

Rest in peace.  :(
