Yeah, and I'd even read several of his or her books!

Or maybe soon some of his or her movies!

Or perhaps I listened to his or her music!

(Actually I'm guessing that if you did mean somebody specific, it was Vidal, so it was books. And I had read a couple; "Burr" and one other, I think. I enjoyed Burr for sure.)

You are right, Tony Sly (lead singer for No Use For A Name) died yesterday at the entirely-too-young age of 41.
Sad news for anyone who listened to skatepunk in the 90's.



For some fond remembrances:

Now, that is a huge loss. I watched that film right after watching 12 Monkeys and it was fabulous!
