Also belated:

If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

Sorry, Drenk. I was similarly gutted when Leonard Cohen died (it was also the week Trump won the election so it really felt like the last fucking straw.)

Found this to be quite striking:

That video now gives the impression that he was eulogizing himself, looking at his life from a distance, empty and resignedbut smirking...

From what I know, he was looking forward to the tour. He was supposed to play this weekend. But sometimes the fear is so strong it leaves you gasping.

Depression is a tricky thing, you just don't know when it'll get you. He didn't pass this particular day. He might have lived another decade or two. Or a year.

May he rest in peace, if it exists.

I'm so many people.

I'll always remember him best as the judge with a heart who takes it easy on Jackie Brown.

Dammit.  And there he is in all his glory just over an hour into the new Breaking Bad movie which I happen to be watching at this exact moment.  I adored him in JACKIE BROWN...

Watched El Camino Friday night, then woke to this news on Saturday morning. He was the quiet heart of Jackie Brown, of course, and brought a perfect blend of calm and gravitas to his role in Twin Peaks The Return. Sounds from all the tributes pouring in that he was a quality bloke in real live.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.
