Vaghan Oliver. Who? The guy who designed all the cool 4AD album covers. BoingBoing has a large number of examples: https://boingboing.net/2019/12/30/vaughan-oliver-graphic-desi.html

 

Never really gave it much thought, but seeing a bunch of them together on one page brings home how much I like his work.

Head about this. It'll End In Tears by This Mortal Coil is one of my favourite album covers.

Syd Mead is my favorite futurist visionary. His influence via Blade Runner, Tron, Alien, etc. is beyond well known, for me his interior concepts and more utopian oriented stuff is what I find perpetually inspiring. His work has a far more timeless and ageless feel to it compared to many other retrofuturism peers.

Here's to Mead and a brighter and better future.

Neil Innes, star of The Rutles, and the "Seventh Python" has passed at 75:

Man, Innes' passing is one of those that reminds me of how old I'm becoming. I wore out a VHS copy of the Rutles as a kid. I didn't realize how core he was at the songwriting of that was until years later, some of his Rutles tunes are as good if not ironically superior to the Beatles originals he was both satirizing and paying homage to. He's def an underappreciated collaborator of Monty Python, as is his work with Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

those videos are so silly - a stupid video of them, completely unplugged, pretending to sing and play while the fully produced track just plays over them

I don't like Rush's music, but have a lot of respect for their musicianship. RIP to a legend.

I recorded a Rush cover band and they stiffed me for a couple hundred dollars.  Actually put me off Rush's music because of it.

Rocky Johnson, pro wrestler and father of Dwayne Johnson, dead at 75.  Here's a clip from That 70s Show, where Dwayne played his father Rocky, and Rocky in turn played Dwayne's grandfather, who was also a wrestler.

It’s an interesting factoid that he has the same name and was also a pro wrestler. His son/self is a celebrity imo
