    That one hurts. RIP Plug 2
    To think Ive been listening to Itsoweezee all week. Man, my friends use to laugh at me because I listened to DeLa, as rap got more violent, these dudes just seemed like they wanted to have fun, and that was more me than the other stuff.

    Reportedly Richard Belzer has died.

    I’m in shock.

    Belzer has played Detective Munch on a record-setting 10 different television series: "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law and Order: Trial By Jury," "Homicide," "The X-Files," "The Beat," "M.O.N.Y.," "Sesame Street," "The Wire" and "Arrested Development."

    The last episode of SVU had a scene where they were talking about Munch moving back to Baltimore and re-buying his cop bar

    Another legend lost. I actually made a 1/6 figure of him awhile back.

    Also read that in the last few years since his retirement in 2016 he had frequently been courted by SVU to return for cameos, but he became too frail and had too many health issues to make the trip from France.

    Will dearly miss him, even though he’s been gone for years he’s such a core part of SVU and Law and Order.



    His final appearance.

    Leiji Matsumoto's passing really hurts. Star Blazers was one of my earliest anime, and even beyond that I was able to enjoy most of Matsumoto's works.

    Matsumoto was one of the classic manga pioneers. His works in general were romance adventure tales, often set in "the sea of stars" (his vision of space). He used warp theory. He had battleships and trains in space and had them filled with soldiers and travelers whose adventures were dramatic and timeless, as much as Star Trek's 60s Enterprise is nowadays with its space adventures. His characters were wonderfully human too: flawed and emotional, but strong and driven.

    Matsumoto himself was an adventurer in his own right: he experienced World War 2, he travelled around the world before starting his manga career, he collected historical weapons, he shot game in Africa before it was made illegal, he rode Japan's last steam train. He lived a grand life, and that grandeur could be seen in his stories.

    Thank you for your work Mr Matsumoto. Farewell, and may we meet again someday.
