Many of you have heard (probably hundreds of times today) that Roger Ebert has passed away today. The sadness that came with this news caught me so off guard that I just had to talk about it. After all, I probably spent most of the time I talked about Ebert by complaining about his reviews. So why did it affect me so? Listen to find out.
This was a hard week. We also lost the genius Spanish visionary Jess Franco,
Muppet Mother Jane Henson,
and brilliant comics artist Carmine Infantino.
They will all live on forever through the joy they brought to the world. RIP.
