Stop! Stiff time!
And this months column appears to be packed full of movies, comics and porn.
No change there then.
First up is Viveka Babajee, ex Miss Mauritius World 1993 and Miss Mauritius Universe 1994, best known for her KamaSutra condom advertisements and for her involvement in the 1994 Metro Manila Film Festival scandal (tho' not the one involving the severed arms of construction workers....I think).
Also last month we lost the goldest (and hottest) of those golden girls, Rue McClanahan as well as porn star cum (in mah mooth) and latterly murder suspect Stephen Clancy Hill, who clumsily fell off a cliff.
Talking of falling of things (but this time for comedic effect) Viana Júnior, the Brazilian comedian actor, best known for his character Apolônio, the sidekick of A Velha Surda (The Old Deaf Woman) on the hit teevee show A Praça É Nossa licked his lips one last time as did the star of Operation: Mystery, Silver Mask, Kikaider 01, Himitsu Sentai Goranger and Ultraman Mebius & Ultraman Brothers, the fantastic Norio Ikeda.
Sticking with cinema June also saw the death of the director of the classics Ozhukkinethire and Sphotanam, P. G. Viswambharan.
The world of the comic book lost one of it's greatest last month too with the death of the legendary Al Williamson, who work on everything from Secret Agent X-9, Star Wars, Daredevil, Spider-Man, and Spider-Girl. His biggest claim to fame tho' was when he once criticised my inking style in a convention toilet.
Or was that Archie Goodwin?
But the saddest news last month was the passing of Chris Sievey, the musician and comedy genius better know as Frank Sidebottom.
From us all I'd like to say a huge "Thank you."
