I enjoyed Michael Cains auto bio. Funny, heartfelt
....also David Nivens. Will give Poiter's a go. He could bring an intensity to a scene matched by few others.

An important early influence. I outgrew him very young, but I always retained a small soft spot for him.

He was also excellent in The 51st State and Fight Club.

One that went far too quickly ... Natanya Brook, singer who appeared on X Factor and The Voice, has died age 23.

According to preliminary reports, she was taking part in an online multiplayer gaming session, when she suddenly fell silent. She was found dead some hours later. Preliminary cause of death is cited as epileptic seizure, and she was known to possess a potentially fatal epileptic condition for some time.

More on this here.

Not shedding any tears. He was a climate change denialist and Trumpist. Unconfirmed reports state that he was an antivaxxer and died of Covid.

I feel good for always having disliked his bellowing style of singing and the sameness of his songs.
