Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, is shown here during a training exercise while serving with 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment. McCollum, along with 12 other service members, was killed during a suicide bombing at the Kubul airport in Afghanistan on August 26, 2021.
Tyler Davis, who coached McCollum and later employed him, remembers Rylee talking about his desire to serve his country. In Davis’ eyes that was a pretty good deal for the Marines. "He was probably exactly what the Marines were looking for," he said.
Fair winds and following seas to you and your fellow service members who gave their lives to help protect and save others. Your sacrifice was not in vain and you will never be forgotten.
I can’t believe it was kept in the wraps for 2 weeks... but I’m a bit flabbergasted and still processing that Kentaro Miura has passed away.
It’s pretty easy to understate how big his influence is in art. Without him, we wouldn’t get Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and the animators and artists of Castlevania explicitly said he was in an influence in their work.
Miura, in my opinion, had one of the greatest eyes for detail and some STRONG, STRONG, STRONG visual imagery almost untouched by... well a lot of people really.
He pushed the visual imagery of fantasy and horror in new and exciting ways, and it’s a test to his timeless writing that we’re still invested in Berserk for decades.
Damn...just...damn, man. RIP to Polly Lou Livingston, who provided the voice of everyone's favorite apple pie making elephant as Tree Trunks, according to one of the crew who worked on Adventure Time, Adam Muto. She'll be missed.
Una Stubbs, beloved English actress who worked in theatre and on the big and small screen, has died. She was 84. Not only a great actress “but also a wickedly funny, elegant, stylish, graceful, gracious and kind and constant friend. She was also a highly respected and exhibited artist.” Most deepest condolences to her family and friends. Rest In Peace.
