Ray Stevenson dead at 58

quote [ Ray Stevenson, who played the villainous British governor in ?RRR,? an Asgardian warrior in the ?Thor? films, and a member of the 13th Legion in HBO?s ?Rome,? has died. He was 58. ]

This hit me kinda hard. Stevenson's performance in HBO's "Rome" is one of my favorite screen characters ever. I've modeled a lot of FRPG and MMORPG fighters after Titus Pullo.

Val?, brother. XIII in aeternum.

Thought of this film today and look-a: it's viewable online.

quote [ A video about the 1981 anime series Fang of the Sun: Dougram, directed by Ryousuke Takahashi. Now mostly known by Battletech fans. I also talk about the works of Italian director Gillo Pontecorvo. ]

The new Witch From Mercury series has been getting me into Gundam again. I'll have to check this out. Recently watched Patlabor, as well, which was interesting.

quote [ It's 1927 and Prohibition is the law of the land. For Rocky, Freckle and Ivy, the night shifts are never dull.

LACKADAISY, based on a comic series by Tracy J. Butler, was directed by Fable Siegel, produced by Iron Circus Animation, and made by a crew of more than 160 skilled artists across the world. The project was funded by Kickstarter backers, aided by Patreon supporters, and fueled by fan viewership and enthusiasm during the course of its production. Thank you so much for watching, and for your support! ]

Pretty cute. I never read the comic but enjoyed the pilot. I'll probably check out the rest.
