Very sad. About three episodes from finishing the series for about the third time (for me, more times for the friend I'm watching with)
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Two from the music world:

* Daryle Singletary, 46, up-and-coming country music star of the mid-to-late 1990s, died early today (Monday, Feb. 12) at his home in Lebanon, Tenn., of unknown causes. His best-known hits were "Too Much Fun" and "I Let Her Lie," both 1996 top 5 country hits; and the 1997 No. 2 hit "Amen Kind of Love":

* Vic Damone, 89, died Sunday, Feb. 11, of a respiratory illness. He was one of the last of the true pop vocalists of the pre-rock era, having a No. 1 hit in 1949 with "You're Breaking My Heart" (he was just 21 at the time, very young for the era) and a top 5 hit in 1950 with "My Heart Cries For You":

Frank Sinatra said Vic Damone "had the best pipes in the business."

Just passed this one up -- was a member of the group during the late 1960s/early 1970s phase. Sang on hits like "Cloud Nine," "I Can't Get Next To You," "Ball of Confusion," "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" and "Papa Was a Rolling Stone." He replaced original Temptation David Ruffin, who had been fired in 1968. Could do ballads as well as the urban funk that the Temptations became known for during their late 1960s/early 1970s phase.

And a followup to my previous post on Daryle Singletary ... the deaths are starting to come for 1990s singers. On Jan. 23, Lari White passed away after a battle with cancer:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2018/01/23/lari-white-dead-52/1060245001/

Lari had a string of hits in the mid 1990s, reaching the top 10 with hits like "That's My Baby," "Stepping Stone" and "Now I Know." Also recorded a duet with Travis Tritt and wrote several songs for acts like Tritt, Pat Green and Lonestar.

RIP.
