all my heartthrobs are leaving

First David Bowie, now Alan Rickman. Both 69 and died of cancer this week. Kurt Russell better not be sick.

I don't remember which film I first saw Alan Rickman in but I've been in swoon with him ever since.

I wish this was a video so I could embed it but it's not, just a series of photos of this handsome and talented man in some of his many roles.

There is this one though.

Fly high Alan.


  1. he was unique and edgy...his acting was that of a bad boy with an undercurrent of tenderness and sensitive attentiveness and we women do love that.

  2. I have a friend who LOVES Snape, so of course we were all offering her our condolences. So very sad. I loved him in Die Hard :)

  3. Not too far away, hope to see past this age.

  4. I have come to the age where the obit page is in the newspaper is the second thing I read every day. Sad to lose these two artists, but what I find incredible is that Mick Jagger and the Stones are still alive They are proof that you don't have to live a clean, healthy life to live long.

  5. It seems a bit unreal, doesn't it? I found out about Rickman right after I got home from the hospital, via a cartoon of Bowie and Rickman someone shared...I can't remember the caption. I just stared at my computer... wondering if it was a distasteful joke. It still feels like a bit of a nasty joke.

    May he fly high and free, indeed.

  6. I is unreal. Grizzly Adams left us this week also. Sheesh!!!

  7. My favorite Alan Rickman film is "Truly Madly Deeply" and I haven't heard it referenced in any of the bios. He was amazingly talented and I do believe he could be any character he took on. We watched "Love Actually" at Christmas and I didn't even know he was ill.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
