That one hurts. Always iconic to horror fans like myself, she did great work till a few years ago. She was fantastic as Isabelle Huppert’s difficult, complicated mother in Things to Come. And what a beauty she still was....
And of course iconic as the original figure who 'let the dogs out' (and birds) in the beautifully lyrical climax of Eyes Without A Face (spoiler for the ending), with her role being paid tribute to in Holy Motors.

Just to restore a little dignity to his passing, Wright was really good in All That Jazz, and Reds as well.

I had always expected it to get blown up by a crazed Naval commander turned boy band manager.

While never especially consistent, MAD had some really brilliant moments in its first thirty years. I practically memorized the anthologies that came out in the ‘90s (Mad About the Sixties, etc). I even subscribed for a time when I was a kid but became annoyed with it when it started carrying (real) ads. Looking back now, its greatest legacy is probably the very early Kurtzman period when it was just an intricately detailed comic book. I’m not much of a comics reader but the sheer ingenuity in those early issues hooked even me.

The most surprising thing about the magazine when I came of age in the ‘90s was how much of the staff had remained consistent for 25-35 years. People like Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones and Frank Jacobs made their entire careers there.

I was obsessed with Mad (and Cracked) when I was a kid. Several years ago I bought a lot on eBay of Mad magazines from my early 90s heyday of doggedly pursuing the latest issues and Super Specials at grocery stores, recognizing every last cover from my own childhood collection, and it was the single worst case of "You can't go home again" anti-nostalgia cure I've ever encountered. They're unreadable, and I must have blocked out how much of their humor is on the plane of forwards from your aunt-level political "satire"-- I must have just glossed over all the politics as a kid because I didn't care or get it, but it's suffocating and worse, unfunny, to try to engage with it as an adult (though who else are these gags aimed at??). But then there's lots of bathroom humor to make the whole thing seem "edgy" to an eight year old, so I'm sure that's what I responded to. The magazine still played a big part in my life when I was younger, but it was also a reminder that sometimes fond memories of things are more valuable than reality

Link is not working for me but Cameron Boyce, a major fixture on Disney Channel’s movies and series died at 20 due to a seizure. Really sucks considering he had his talent being hindered by those mammoth contracts and monotonous series they had him in.

He had a very early role as the son of Keifer Sutherland's character in that seemingly very post Ring and J-horror in general influenced film Mirrors. And was the little brother to Michelle Monaghan's love interest in Eagle Eye. After that it looks like it was Adam Sandler films and Disney movies (He's also in Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, which gets regular screenings on the BBC during school holidays)

As a kid in the 90s, I was more familiar with Perot as a subject of sketch-comedy ridicule than as a political candidate. The impersonation on Nickelodeon's All That is particularly bizarre and memorable.

Likewise, and the same goes for Admiral Stockdale. However, I just discovered that actor Stephen Lang is doing a one man show about Medal of Honor recipients, with Stockdale’s story being one of them. He went through some horrifying years in captivity.
