That's really sad about Chris Cornell. I hate that he couldn't find a way to go on. At least he's at peace now.

I became a fan of Soundgarden because of that old game Road Rash. Played it all the time. One of the best soundtracks to a game ever. So, cool to be racing, bashing people's head with a tire iron while Rusty Cage is playing.

Don't want to leave out Audioslave. Talented people seem to always find a new avenue to create and he did with them. You know my name is in my top five Bond themes as well.

RIP

Not a Soundgarden guy, but so sad to hear. The guy is known to have suffered from clinical depression for a large number of years now. The only positive that can come out of this sad and sudden death now is for more awareness to be spread of how mental illness(es) can have a huge effect on people and one's life, as well as certain situations they may be going through. All I can see today from people from his last performance last night is 'but he doesn't look depressed', 'he doesn't look like he's about to kill himself in a few hours' etc. His wife has even stated recently that he didn't show any suicidal thoughts before he done the deed. It's easy to hide pain and mental anguish. I'd say before one commits suicide, they've already accepted their fate, and feels like a weight off the shoulders. Sad, but true. Rest in power.

I copied my guitar style around Soundgarden. One of my favorite bands of all time and Chris was one of the last great rock vocalists of our time. This fucking sucks. So glad I had the chance to see them live. Rest in peace.:crying:

Almost wanted to change my name before I posted on here earlier to Black Hole Son (before I remembered it was already being used) because of how much I love that song/video & how bad my own life has been, especially after how horrible the first week of this month was for me & what I just heard about in the last 24 hours that I've really been angry/upset/annoyed about.

I've posted many times on here about how my mom has been the source of my fucked up life, without going into details. But honestly, it goes way back to before I was even born & what she also put my dad through, before & after I was around.

I know I don't wanna go out the way Chris Cornell did, no matter how much he actually makes me seem like it might not be so bad. What I do hope I can keep avoiding like I've been doing for many years though is HOMICIDE.

'Black Hole Sun' is my best friend right now. I've been watching/listening to it for hours, and I don't wanna stop.

"Death gotta be easy, 'cause life is hard. It'll leave you physically, mentally & emotionally scarred." - 50 Cent

THAT'S LITERALLY THE CASE FOR ME, and I've been painfully tearing up on & off for the past few hours also. I'm not afraid to admit that. Doing it again right now while listening to the acoustic version of 'Black Hole Sun' that HiddenFlaw posted.

R.I.P Powers Boothe and Michael Parks.

Hadn't realized they passed away until now.

Powers Boothe is one of the greatest villians in Hollywood ever and I'm not just talking for one specific role, I'm talking any role. He always had that menacing intimidating look and voice that was perfect for a villain role. I'm not sure if I have ever seen him play a babyface role in a movie before. My favourite role of his is as Cy Tolliver in Deadwood but he was great in any role he played.

From Dusk Till Dawn is my favourite film behind White Men Can't Jump and Michael Parks made Sherriff Earl McGraw such an iconic character for a small appearance in that film. From Dusk Till Dawn has one of the best opening scenes ever and that was down to Parks, Clooney, Tarantino and Hawkes awesomeness as actors. R.I.P Earl McGraw.

RIP Lisa Spoonauer

Really love Clerks. This is very sad. 44 is much too young, especially for someone with a young child.

Kevin Smith

Devastated to report that #LisaSpoonauer, who played Caitlin in #clerks, has passed away.

In 1992, I went looking for Lisa without knowing either who she was or the integral role she'd play in my life. I'd held a night of open auditions at the #firstavenueplayhouse (where we found @briancohalloran and @marilynghigliotti) but the perfect Caitlin Bree never walked through the door. So I popped into an acting class at Brookdale Community College and watched the students from the back. Lisa was easily the most natural and authentic voice in the room. She didn't sound like she was acting at all; she delivered scripted dialogue as if she was inventing her conversation in the moment, like people do in real life.

Captivated, I approached Lisa cold in the parking lot after the class and said "This is gonna sound creepy but... Do you wanna be in a movie?" Fearlessly, she replied "Not if it's porn." I told her a bit about Clerks and gave her a copy of the script and my phone number. She called me a few days later and said "Well it's not porn, but everybody talks like it is. It's funny. I'll do it."

A complete stranger at first, Lisa quickly became one of the most important people I'd ever meet when she joined Brian, #JeffAnderson, Marilyn, @jaymewes, @samosier, @davidkleinasc and me as one of the chief architects of my first film. We rehearsed for a month straight in the store after hours, where Lisa perfected Caitlin (and fell in love with Jeff).

The first night of the shoot, Lisa had to maneuver her way through a seven minute scene with Brian in the video store, when Caitlin finally shows up in the movie. Lisa and Brian CRUSHED it in one long take that still remains one of my favorite scenes I've ever shot - not because it shows off any directorial flare (it doesn't) but because it exemplified how great the performers were since we never had to cut away from their 2-shot.

But as strong an actress as she was, Lisa was an even more excellent Mother to her daughter Mia. Whenever we'd Facebook later in life, she'd gush about her baby girl proudly. My heart goes out to Tom, Mia and Lisa's family.

Thank you for dreaming my dream with me. You changed my life, Lisa.

Brian O'Halloran

I'm truly gutted by this news. I've learned that on Saturday Lisa Spoonauer passed away. My deepest condolences and prayers to her husband Tom and his family. She always had a wicked sense of humor and smile. I was blessed to have been part of an incredible life changing adventure with her. To this day it is a part of my life. Not a day goes by that she was mentioned or remembered in some fashion. She will live on in my heart and in the hearts of millions. Always in my heart. Rest in Peace Lisa.

Marilyn Ghigliotti

Words can not even begin to express how heartbroken I am to hear that Lisa Spoonauer passed away on Saturday. My sincerest and deepest condolences to her husband Tom, her dearest daughter Mia and the rest of the family. I was blessed to have gotten to share an experience with her and the rest of the Clerks family that cannot be measured and will always be remembered. Prayers to you always. You will be forever in our hearts Lisa.


Scott Mosier


So sad and torn up on hearing about the passing of Lisa Spoonauer - just saw the news now. Completely shocked and saddened. My condolences to her whole family. Really devastating.

Glenne Headly (Dick Tracy; Dirty Rotten Scoundrels; Mr. Holland's Opus) has passed away. Her unusual presence was always a welcome addition to any film (Mortal Thoughts; Winchell; Getting Even With Dad...). RIP.

One of those great charecter actors who can give a helluva performance in any kind of genre,and can just as easily give a subtle performance as a scenery chewing one. Sad one not just for her film work but her theater career as well.
