Neal Peart - saying he was the drummer and lyricist for Rush only breaks the surface. Amazing guy. 67, of brain cancer.

Don't look at me, I just work here.

People magazine is reporting that Kirk Douglas has passed away at 103.

RIP

I AM SPARTACUS!!

Principle photography took so long on this movie that Tony Curtis allegedly asked Jean Simmons, "Who do I have to f*** to get off this film?" Some versions of the interaction include Simmons shouting back, "When you find out, let me know."
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

The message board world mourns.

Larry Tesler, an icon of early computing, has died at the age of 74.

Mr Tesler started working in Silicon Valley in the early 1960s, at a time when computers were inaccessible to the vast majority of people.

It was thanks to his innovations - which included the "cut", "copy" and "paste" commands - that the personal computer became simple to learn and use.
