Were you a fan? I've never read any of her stuff. Only ever saw the Tom Cruise movie.

80 is a pretty good run, I think. I know people can last a lot longer and remain vital, but...

80 is a pretty good run.

I actually wasn't.  I always meant to read her books.  I think I may have picked one up and tried and got bored.  I think this was around when Queen of the Damned got released as I was, like, one of the five other people that actually liked Queen of the Damned.  But the Interview and QotD movies was as far as I got as far as Anne Rice anything. 

I do recall some brouhaha on FB about her being problematic in some way.  This happened several years ago but I don't remember for what specifically.  I tried looking this up to jog my memory and she was allegedly a bully who hated fanfiction and negative commentary on her works to the extent of encouraging harassment and doxxing.  Because what better use of one's popularity than to point your finger at your target and let your millions of fans have at them?  I know this isn't an official source on anything but I found these tumblr posts circa 2017 if you're interested in any of the anecdotes.

But, yeah, 80's a good run.  She had a good life.  And if the allegations against her are true, she had a much better life than she deserved.

**Because that's tumblr, sorry, but there's a lot of nonsense over at that link as well.  But I'm too lazy to google any further than that.

Well.

I guess if she was a horrible bitch, then she can rot.

I wonder if now that she's gone, if whoever inherits her estate or whatever, is going to try and flood the market with adaptations of her stuff.

Like, maybe some bishy shit on crunchyroll or Netflix or something.

I mean, that could be good, right? Potentially?

I did a quick search and it seems something was already in the works before she croaked.  She and her son were looking to get her stuff adapted to series.

Relevant press release: AMC Networks Acquires Rights To The Iconic Works Of Anne Rice

AMC doesn't give me much hope tbh.  But then again, neither does anyone else. :lol:

Yeah, AMC's kind of a meat grinder. Seems that Walking Dead was just a cosmic fluke for them, and they're milking it way beyond its best before date. What is there, like, three different series now?

But yeah, that fits. Some Anne Rice series that runs far too long and spawns multiple spinoffs. That checks out.

I was actually reading Interview with a Vampire when she passed. Now I'm reading The Vampire Lestat (I got a book of the whole trilogy). Rest in peace goth queen

I thinking of a way for Abe Shinzo to take over this thread somehow but I'm struggling to be funny.

You just pull one of these...

Shinzo Abe is dead.


I'm surprised old Anne didn't get one. I guess that was in the before times.

Wait wait wait... the creator of Yu-gi-oh died?  He drowned while snorkling?  He was found partially eaten by animals?  And had what appeared to be a shark bite?  Holy shit.  At least it wasn't cancer claiming someone again.  Too bad you can't edit Voldemort to have Yugi hair.

Oh yeah, I heard about that. So unnecessary. Like, don't do activities like that by yourself. If just one other person had been with him, he could still be alive today. Fucking terrible. He was only 60!

I'm actually a little bit upset about this one, because it didn't have to happen. Terminal illness is one thing, going snorkeling alone and not coming back is a tragedy.

It's a tough world for lonely people who want to be outdoors. I'm sure if I loved going outside and remotely tolerated bodies of water, I'd be found bloated and chewed, too. If this guy liked mountains instead, they'd've probably found him eaten by bears or something.

They say money can't buy you happiness. But it also apparently couldn't buy Ivana safe stairs.

My face is glued to my phone almost every day like everybody else and I swear, frickin' Google "news" (or whatever they call the page with news stories that pops up when I open a new tab) only tells me the most useless shit on the planet. It didn't even tell me Nichelle Nichols died. Why'd I have to find that out through Facebook three days later when I was randomly logging in? And stop giving me paywall bullshit. Man, Google fucking disgusts me at how useless it's determined to be when it comes to news and search results. All in service of our corporate overlords. Or whatever. :finger:

Uhura's passing got crossposted at Kotaku, that's how I heard about it.

I will spare her from the Voldemort treatment.

Oh, the Shat will be getting Voldemorted, don't you worry.

That reminds me, when I got my Kindle however many fucking years ago it was now, I fell down a Bizarro fiction hole. Don't know if you're familiar. If I had to describe it, I'd say it's just absolute trash literature. It would be like... reading a Big Mac... or something.

Anyway, there was this one story called Shatnerquake. Basically it was about every character he's ever played coming to life, and the protag has to protect the real Shatner, because they're all trying to kill him. I think? That might be totally wrong. Maybe Shat was the protag? Whatever.

Seriously, don't go looking for it. It's pretty much just fanfic that got published. Dissolves grey matter on contact.

Olivia Newton John died. I always thought John would go first. Weird thought from me, I know, but I'm actually kind of worried for her daughter Chloe Lattanzi. The daughter's had various addiction issues and was already a hot mess before her mom died. But she supposedly runs a cannabis farm now so maybe she's found the way to cope.

I cannot believe my mans dead. I was in shock tbh. Mostly because he was my neighbour (as in he lived like a min away from my place). I was walking the dog and there were so many reporters outside of his building but NO noise at all. Very respectful and all. RIP

ALso RIP Olivia. I was listening to Summer Nights the weekend before she passed, coincidentally.

ALso they are saying Anne Heche is gone for real. Also read a bit about her life and omg what a fucked up one that was. Poor lady.

Yeah, I was reading about Anne Heche and damn. I never knew all of that about her. Honestly, I'm just glad she didn't take anyone out with her. And I didn't know one of her kids is, like, 13. I thought they were both adults.

I went into Schmoo's room yesterday to ask her about a flowering plant she has outside and she's immediately all "I know, the Queen died." And that's how I found out the Queen died. "King Charles" tho'..... EW.

Not to be callous, but the thing that immediately popped into my mind was, "Hey! Does this mean we'll be getting new money up here in the lands beyond?"

Elizabeth is currently featured on our twenty dollar bill, and all of our coins. Is it Ol' Chuck's time to shine?

Apparently not in the foreseeable future, according to national news outlets. Bummer.

Foreseeable. Foreseeable. Just look at that for a moment. That's an actual English word. More vowels than consonants.

I believe in you. He's hella old. It's gotta be soonish, yeah? He doesn't have momma's grit. No way is he living twenty-three more years to reach her age.

Totally blanked on this music video featuring clips of 1997's Nothing to Lose. I guess the song was on the soundtrack? Weird.

Did you actually remember that was a movie or did the video description mention it? I completely forgot that movie was a thing.
