Agreed. Without giving too much away, a legendary Brian in a period when it was hard to carry the name. I hope it's good through the round window, Brian.

Michael Bond... Pass me a marmalade sandwich (Paddington would approve, M. Pamplemousse maybe not).

Adding: Barry Norman. To the tune of "I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free", naturally... and why not?

The Economist wrote:Obituary: Liu Xiaobo, China’s leading human-rights campaigner

The man who called himself “Doomsday’s survivor” died on July 13th, aged 61

“I HAVE no enemies and no hatred,” Liu Xiaobo told a court in Beijing during his trial for subversion in 2009. Hatred, he said, “can rot away at a person’s intelligence and conscience”. He had every reason to despise the government; he was about to go to jail for simply petitioning for democracy in China and asking people to sign up. But the forgiveness he offered was never reciprocated by the Communist Party. Officials did not allow him to pick up the Nobel peace prize he won a year later, as the “foremost symbol”—in the Nobel committee’s words—of the struggle for human rights in China.

That makes me sad. I wonder if their album sales will increase. Such a sad thought that that is typically what happens in events such as this.

Hung himself, like Cornell did, on Cornell's birthday. They were close friends. I'm guessing the timing is not a coincidence.

Why have I only just heard about Rollin Hand/John Koenig? Assuming that it was Martin Landau that got put in the coffin. And that he then stayed there, rather than deftly ripping off pulse-obscuring prosthetics and escaping out of a trick bottom.
