    I know, I know. A relatively unknown duet by the late James Ingram and the retired Linda Ronstadt. So sue me.

    eta: I know, I know. An even more unknown trio by James Ingram, Kenny Rogers and Kim Carnes:

    Sometimes it's best. Hell, bone cancer's a pedigree female canine imho.

    Albert Finney passed away after a short illness at the tender age of 82.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was prolific on the stage and on both the big and small screen. Here's his filmography: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0001215/?ref=m_nv_sr_1

    Blaine Cameron Johnson passed away from injuries sustained in an auto crash at the tender age of 28.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Cadet, an up-and-coming British rap "star", was on his way to a concert venue when the vehicle he was in collided with a van. His cousin, Krept, confirmed the rapper's death.

    Oreo passed away at the tender age of 10 (give or take.)

    "Who?" you ask?

    You might be more familiar with a character that was modeled after him: Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy. He was also in Pinheads. Here's his filmography: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm7954927/?ref_=m_ttfcd_cl114

    I believe that Opportunity Rover's passing could go in the Science forum, but that's just my opinion here. :oops:

    Lol, and I believe when it comes to "media star" being in the media and actually known as a star performer meet the qualifications!

    Idk, maybe people need a link, need to google to find out who opportunity is and their claim to fame? Lol.

    Such a sad day. But also amazing that it made it 14 YEARS longer than its intended survival date. Blows my mind what people are able to design, build, and ship to another planet.

    Bruno Ganz passed away from cancer at the tender age of 77.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He portrayed a vast array of characters including Hitler and an angel (in two separate movies.) Here's his filmography with links to several obituaries: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0004486/?ref=m_nv_sr_1
