I mean 83 is pretty old and all but I'm heavily considering burning 2016 to the ground now.

That and [tornado fang]ing Alzheimers, I know he was extremely lucky in that it didn't [tornado fang] with him as the majority of other cases but that's still worse than Cancer to me........

This makes me sad. I greatly enjoyed his work.

If I still played Left 4 Dead 2, I would sing the "Pure Imagination" song once more as I dragged someone into a corner, just like the good ol days.

Mmyeah, it was kind of a running joke at the time. Ahh, those were fun times.

That aside, I think I'll pop on Young Frankenstein tonight.

Sounds utterly disturbing but okay.

I really need to finish Young Frankenstein myself.

[tornado fang]ing. OUCH. This hit me hard.

He was a fantastic actor.

Fun fact:

The outburst in the ending scene was completely improvised by Gene on the spot.



Another fun fact.

Gene Wilder refused to play Willy Wonka, unless his character pretended to be cripple and then quickly recovered during his introduction, showing the audience that his character can be deceptive.

This deception was only known by the director, but not to his fellow actors, so the reactions you see are genuine.



R.I.P. This great man

rip Gene. He aged pretty well all things considered.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.
