Not the most fun thing to think about, I know, but I've actually been thinking about it a lot lately.

Just two people for me: Trent Reznor and Shigeru Miyamoto.

I'm not normally one to get all bent out of shape about celebrity deaths. The last one that affected me in any way was David Bowie, and before that, I hadn't really felt very much at all over any dead famous person's death besides shock.

But Trent Reznor's music has scored my life for as long as I can remember, and has gotten me through so much shit (not that I've "been through" very much shit, but still), and Miyamoto-san is basically responsible for my entire childhood, as well as pretty much everything else that I still enjoy about life, as sad as that sounds.

I put these people on a massive fucking pedestal that I know I probably shouldn't. I've never met them, never will, and I'm not even sure if I'd want to. But their works have had such a significant impact on my life, so I don't think it's completely irrational to be emotionally attached to them in some way.

I can't really think of anybody else. Knock on wood.

I don't know if I will be devastated emotionally but it's going to be weird when George Lucas dies.

It's not like he actually does anything anymore but I'm just so used to him... existing, wearing his plaid flannel shirt, jeans, and glasses. Him passing away would be sad, certainly, but more than anything I would say that it will feel strange.

Maybe Olafur Eliasson or Katoki Hajime, I can't really think of anyone else off the top of my head.  Tho Katoki is only really impactful because of his ver Ka. line of Gundam kits/designs.  I don't really get too invested in people to (not to sound heartless) care, if it happens it sucks, but it doesn't really affect my everyday life.

Definitely a good one. I fully expect his death to have the Michael Jackson effect, full-force.

Sri Mooji. That dude turned me away from a dark path that would've left me so miserable and broken I would probably be dead right now.

I'm beginning to feel the same towards Jordan Peterson as well.

i have no idea what to think about jordan peterson

he's the most down-to-earth and well-spoken person i've ever seen on the right-wing and he's obviously a smart guy, but he's also just dead wrong about so many things, and he comes across as smug to me

I honestly don't think any of them would really affect me much at all. Some more than others of course, but nothing more than a "sucks, shrug" kind of reaction. But to name a few: John Carmack, Jagger, McCartney and some academics in my field.

Personally, his message about taking responsibility to give your life meaning resonates with me immensely and I think it's a message that people desperately need to hear right now.

I can't find anything he's said that I can definitely say he's dead wrong about, though I still observe what he says critically. That's probably because I don't believe myself to be anywhere near smart or wise enough to say I understand much of what he talks about to the extent that I could refute him. Especially when even he claims to not have an entire grasp on many of these things and is still trying to figure them out himself. The psychological significance of religion being one of the main ares. I'll give him props, though, for being the only person to ever make the The Bible interesting for me.

The cultism around him is pretty concerning. Dude's smart and says some good things, but he does talk about things not within his area of expertise. Much of what he said on the topic of Canada's law on gender discrimination was factually wrong and little more than fearmongering, and he also pushed some points as absolute truth about identity / human development that I've seen "factchecked" as actually being highly contested in scientific circles (as with the Damore memo that he supported).

Trent Reznor is the main one, but Hideo Kojima, David Hayter and Shida Naotoshi come to mind. It's hard to say, I've never really experienced an impactful celebrity death before.

Where can I legitimately fact check that because I've seen various biologists and psychologists claim the research Damore cited was sound, and I haven't seen anyone actually refute it. If there are legitimate academics with research disputing it, I would really like to see it. I want to know the truth.

When it comes to bill C16, in Canada. Is compelled speech not now instantiated in law? Does the law not state that one could be fined for mis-gendering a person? Peterson has said numerous times that, when he spoke out against the law, it was absolutely reasonable for people to doubt him because it was something a reasonable person would never expect to see from a nation like Canada. I don't believe those to be the tactics of fear-mongering, I'm sorry. If one is forced to use specific pronouns under penalty of law, then that is compelled speech. That appears to be the essence of Peterson's argument against the law. I would genuinely like to know what is factually wrong about that.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Father Dougal McGuire, from Craggy Island's Father Ted.
David Attenborough, Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford come to mind.

It's more of a "Oh fuck these vastly famous/influential/iconic people in their field are dead and won't be making more things" than anything else.

What really has me concerned is that we never got new people, not really to replace them, but people that could take up their mantle, y'know be added alongside them in the newer generation.  We don't really have our own Harrison Fords or Sir Ian McKellens.

sure we do

you just have a childhood connection with those actors that you can't have with the newer lot because you're not a child anymore

i can see people like robert downey jr. and ryan gosling and jake gyllenhaal and chris pratt being held up in that light for a lot of kids

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
It already did a few years ago with Robin Williams. That was the hardest death I had to take in for a while, and the thought of his situation and the joy he spread over his career really hurt.

Now, I wouldn’t call them a friend because of some of the stuff they tell me to do can negatively affect my life. But I have grown accustomed to them... and when they are gone I fear I will lose my mind.
