I’m reading Phil Manzanera’s autobiography and he mentions Peter Sinfield doing some producing for the old Roxy Music and he’s apparently still alive! He also wrote lyrics for the first King Crimson album

I mentioned him the baseball thread, but fan favorite Stormin’ Gorman Thomas and his sideburns and mustache is 73

I had a boss who was from Wisconsin who adored Gorman. While best known as a Brewer, he also had some highs in Seattle.

Shot a few months ago with Roger. He tells some good stories. I love the one about Amarcord.

As much as I love Junji Ito, Kazuo Umezu is the true master of manga horror and he’s still around.


His work is brilliant and bizarre, like the nightmare of children where he isn’t afraid to take it to crazy places.

Chan Kong-sang turned seventy yesterday! Despite recent photographs, he’s actually in fine health and was just in makeup for a role.
