Feel you. Grateful for the insights about acting he was able to impart during his interview on WTF earlier this year.

He one of those dudes I'd assumed was dead for years and I think it's just for how brilliantly he played Bela Lugosi dying that the thought crept in.

Sorry for our loss. He was one of those actors who did so much, but generally people only connected with him through a small slice of his career. For me, it was Ed Wood, X-Files, and Entourage. A legend, fondly remembered.

Chester Bennington, 'Linkin Park' Lead Singer, found dead by hanging


This is a particularly rough one on me, I was never the biggest Linkin Park fan but always appreciated the sincerity of his lyrics. I got the impression that he was pretty well adjusted despite all the self doubt and frustration that comes across through their songs. He put a lot of himself into the music and always seemed to be reaching for some deeper truths. As hackneyed as it seemed at times, it wasn't something we were very used to hearing on the radio. I've grown more of a fondness for their older songs the further we get away from them being popular. There's always a sense of fallibility in them, never just going for the kick ass rocker guy image.

Now, not to make this about me, but I have these kind of self defeating thoughts all the time but have never seriously considered suicide. When you see people who were presumably living out their dreams, making tons of money, meeting their heroes, it's baffling to me how they chose to tap out while I'm still plugging away with my shitty life. Maybe it's that the highs were too high and could never be matched, or they'd seen the top of the mountain and achieved everything they'd wanted in their careers and simply couldn't accept the current lull they were going through. Linkin Park hadn't had a hit in ten years. I have to assume he was extremely unhappy with the reception they were getting on tour, and it just makes you wish he'd consider retiring, or backing away from it all for a year to try and find yourself outside of that grueling schedule. Then there's the chance he could come back reinvigorated with something new and interesting to say. It just sucks to see people have to succumb to the constraints their careers put on them from living a simple, happy life.

I'm going to enjoy revisiting his songs, this time around listening and thinking "Wow, I guess he really meant it."

Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Undeniably a master of horror, and responsible for most of my nightmares growing up.
I'll think I'll go put on LIFEFORCE

Even though he'd done so much more, it was HDS's work with Lynch that I know him best for. He really got under my skin and made it itch in Wild At Heart, he was the perfect foil for Richard Farnsworth at The Straight Story's emotional conclusion, and it even turned out his role in Twin Peaks had so much going on that we're still all trying to piece together. He was 91 and still going strong. I salute you, sir.
