Wrestling fans, brace yourselves:

The Ultimate Warrior died Tuesday night, at 54. James Hellwig was walking his wife to the car at a hotel when he keeled over and died.

He was inducted to the WWE Hall Of Fame Monday and had this to say:

Quote:

"...Every man's heart one day beats its final beat; his lungs breathe their final breath.

And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory."
And he died the next day. Is that foreshadowing, or what?

No cause of death yet, but...

I've not been a wrestling fan for many years, but, I can remember watching The Ultimate Warrior when I was a child.

DJ E-Z Rock, real name Rodney Bryce, died Sunday.

E-Z Rock was the DJ for Rob Base. The two mad the big time with "It Takes Two", and "Joy and Pain, among other hits.

No cause of death, yet.

I bought that CD (Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock "It Takes Two") when it came in 1988. It is one of five rap albums/cd's I own, out of over three hundred.

71 is no age at all

Nooo! I hadn't seen that. That's so sad.

Pneumonia took him before the Parkinson's could. Not sure how to feel about that.

Clodfobble 04-30-2014 09:33 AM

I couldn't remember who he was until I opened the link. Now I'm sad. I know he did a ton of stuff but for me he will always be from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

footfootfoot 04-30-2014 09:48 AM

That is sad.

I just read it...:eek:

I went to see "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and the engine siezed on my 73 Monte Carlo. Vette motor, 375 horse heads, lumpy cam, big honkin' Quadra-Jet...I about cried.

Good times, man, good times.

how does that happen? radiator failure or oil leak?

re Bob Hoskins, I really enjoyed the film "Unleashed", Hoskins was great, so was Jet Li.

Hoskins was an actor who was really accessible to independent film makers.
He had a great reputation for being willing to work on small budget productions if he liked the script. He was paid of course, but nowhere near the fees he could earn for international film shoots or even theatre, where he started.

His reasoning was that (well-organised) low budget shoots took up a sneeze of his time. He was "one-take-Hoskins" and believed in bringing anyone with talent up through the ranks both in front and behind the camera.
And yes, I'm writing as someone who knew people who worked with him.
An exceptionally generous man.

And yes, I agree with Monster, 71 is no age at all. Dads is 74 today.
