Having owned a cat myself, it is sad when one dies.I

Funny story about Grumpy Cat: a nephew, Ben Lashes, of my home church's former longtime senior pastor is (I guess was) the manager for Grumpy Cat, along with Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat.
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.

Absolutely. When I saw Grumpy Cat had passed away I was saddened not only because I was a fan, but because it reminded me of when my cat died this past September.

Graphic designer Roslaw Szaybo passed on at the age of 85. You might not know the name, but if you listen to heavy metal, chances are, you've seen some of his work. He designed the Judas Priest logo, it's his hand holding the razor blade on the "British Steel" album cover.

I recall him for covering Cruella de Vil in the 1996 live-action adaptation of 101 Dalmatians.
