I can't find anything either. Maybe Syd's pulling our leg.

That's not cool. You don't even know how stoked I was to hear about his death and the cancellation of a sequel to a movie I don't want to talk about anymore more than this.

According to Wiki, he's 30 and shares his birthday (daya nd year) with John Cena. Woo. =(


RIP Hacker.

I liked that movie, and I love White Castle hamburgers.

I guess it's too bad for you that White Castle isn't in Missouri. My friend who now lives near the Ozarks is always complaining about that.

Crying Crying Crying Crying

This is a great loss to the music community, but at least it wasn't an out of the blue tragedy. That makes things like this a bit easier to swallow.


RIP Hacker.

He was working on the 12th and final book at the time of his death. It is unclear how far along he was. However, it has been reported that he outlined all the major plot points for the book so that it could be finished. It is currently unclear if Jordan had picked someone to finish the book in the event of his passing or if that task is to be left to his estate.

Yeah, I was just reading about it on here:

Beyond expressions of sadness at Jordan's passing, I have no doubt the most frequent question/concern will be, "What happens to WoT?"

I talked with Jason about this. He said that Jordan has been dictating outlines and plot lines and everything else related to the final book. He used the phrase "army of writers" to talk about the people that were converting those tapes into written form.

It would appear that the final book will still be published, I'm sure details regarding that will work themselves out. So please be patient (as challenging as that might be), and for now let's focus on Jordan's life, writing, and the joy he brought to us.

Still sucks though.

It's been expected for a long time. I'm not worried he made the proper preparations.

Wikipedia said she died in 1974.

Weird, I saw a thing on This Morning with George Stefonopolos that mentioned her during the In Memoriam segment.

Edit: I mispoke on the woman, but the recently deceased was a regular on Bewitched . Alice Ghostley, who played Aunt Esmerelda.

Gotcha. But after all, you could be right about Agnes Moorehead. We're all aware of how...fickle...Wikipedia can be with the facts. Wink

Of course, Mrs. Moorhead would have likely been nearly a hundred and ten if she had died this year. Not impossible, but highly unlikely.
