Pat Carroll

Carroll is perhaps best known for playing Ariel's half-octupus/half-human nemesis in the 1989 hit Disney movie -- and for all the show-stopping numbers she pulled off on her own, doing all of the singing for the film by herself ... and reprising the role throughout the years.

Olivia Newton-John. I've only ever heard a few songs she sang, but she did sing the intro song, Take Me Home Country Roads, for my favorite animated film of all time...which I know is a cover, but it matters not to me. RIP.

Apparently, she'd been fighting breast cancer on and off for 30 years, and it's what got her in the end.

Spoiler

Yes, I did have to upload this myself - all the uploads already on YouTube were either of horrible quality or some version that had really bad mixing where her voice was weirdly muted and muddled. This one's...a little sharp for my tastes, but it's much better at least.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Since there's no concrete definition of what makes a "classic movie" you could (technically?) say many of his movies are, if one uses the broadest of a film simply of high reknown that holds up (or even becomes rated higher than at initial release) after repeated viewings/many years.

I probably like In the Line of Fire more then Air Force One but neither are even close to the league of Das Boat. At any rate, RIP.

As well as, Olivia Newton John ... yeah, Grease will always have a place in my heart.

Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.

I think I read his DM of the Rings D&D/LotR parody many, many years ago. RIP.

Peter Straub had passed. I remember reading The Talisman and enjoying it when I was a kid.
