Oh no.  He was so great as an actor.  Course he lived hard so he kind of knew that he was not going to be a centagenarian.

The Larry Sanders Show.

And of course, the one he will always be remembered for in my heart...The Beastmaster! That came out when I was in college. We would watch it over and over and over again. Comedy gold.

That's where I remember him from.  It was said in its early days, that HBO stood for "Hey, Beastmaster is On", since it was on all the time.

Ross Perot, Lee Iacocca, Rip Torn. Three in a row all of whom I had thought were long dead.

They were.  This is just another piece of evidence in a long line of proof that the LHC did and does create false histories known as the Mandella effect.

They always die in threes?

When celebrities get very old and you don't hear anything from them for a length of time, one just comes to assume they died. I wouldn't be surprised to find out many people (most?) think Sean Connery and Gene Hackman are dead.

Kirk Douglas and  Olivia de Havilland are seemingly immortal.

Some of them just retire to their tax shelters instead of trying to remain in the public sphere.

Margaret Fulton OAM. 6 October 1924 – 24 July 2019

You Americans might not have heard of her, but she was very literally a household name here. Every Australian's mum owns at least one of her cookbooks.

The acclaimed Australian writer and cook Margaret Fulton has died aged 94.

Fulton, a trailblazing author of more than 25 cookbooks, is often credited with bringing international cuisine to a generation of Australians.

She was Australia’s first celebrity cookbook writer.

Her first cookbook, The Margaret Fulton Cookbook, was first published in 1968 and sold more than a million copies. It and the 800-page Margaret Fulton’s Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery, first published in 1983, are regarded as the foundational texts of Australian cooking.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

All those memories will be lost in time. 

Like Tears in the rain.

Time to Die.

Quote
Rutger Hauer, the Dutch actor who starred as the alien Roy Batty in 1982’s “Blade Runner,” has died. He was 75.
Hauer, whose other American TV and film credits included “Batman Begins,” “Sin City” and “True Blood,” “passed away peacefully at his Dutch home” on July 19, according to a Wednesday announcement on the actor’s AIDS charity website, the Rutger Hauer Starfish Assn. His death came after a very short illness, the announcement said.

A fine villain, in his day.
