For me, Harry Dean Stanton will always be the Harry Dean Stanton in Cool Hand Luke.

Ol' Harry was a Kentuckian, y'know.

His cameo in the Marvel Universe, when he finds a naked, post-Hulk Bruce Banner. We were happy to see him pop up in unexpected places.

At first I was all "WTF is a Basil Gogos?"

And then I was all "Hey, I know this guy's work!"

Here's his version of the "Creature From The Black Lagoon", the only monster that I ever dreamed about:

Also, the world's oldest living person isn't, anymore. Living, I mean. Violet Brown died at the ripe old age of 117 years, 189 days.

She was the second to last living person born in the 19th century.

Nabi Tajima is now the oldest living person on Earth, and the last living person born in the 19th century. 117 years, 45 days.
