He was 74 years old
Very sad news to pass along today … H.R. Giger, the artist who created the iconic Alien creatures for Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi horror films, has died due to complications from a fall he suffered in his home in Zurich. There aren’t a lot of details surrounding the actual cause of death except for the reports that Giger had to be hospitalized after he fell and then died yesterday at the age of 74. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who is unfamiliar with Giger‘s darkly beautiful work. He is the man responsible for all of those nightmares that sprung up in the wake of the release of all of the Alien movies … and he will be sorely missed. More »

Yesterday would’ve been the late Cory Monteith‘s 32nd birthday and to honor and mark the occasion, Lea Michele shared a really sweet photo of Cory on her official Twitter profile with the world. It’s been just about 10 months since Cory passed away due to a drug overdose last July and altho Lea has moved on considerably from her painful loss, it’s clear that Cory is still on her mind … so much so that she felt compelled to celebrate his birthday in this way.

The day I long feared was coming … has come. The CW has announced which of its shows have been renewed for more seasons and which shows have been cancelled. It is with a very sad, very heavy heart that I must pass along the news that The CW has decided to cancel The Carrie Diaries. I, personally, am crushed by this news. I loved the show from the very start and loved each episode of the two seasons that we got. The addition of Lindsay Gort as Samantha Jones last season gave me hope that the show would live on for a third season but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. And so, I have to give a sad Peace the Spork Out to The Carrie Diaries with a heavy dose of BOOOOOOOO! More »

The Final Word?
Last month Seattle police released two batches of photos from the Kurt Coabin death scene HERE and HERE ahead of the 20th anniversary of his death back in 1994. Today we learn that the Seattle PD has newly released an old note that was found in Kurt‘s wallet at the time of his death. In his own hand, Kurt refers to wife Courtney Love as a “bitch with zits” who was “siphoning all [of his] money for doping and whoring“. HMMM. As you may know, the suicide note that Cobain left only had positive things to say about Courtney … so the notes appear to contradict one another. Have a look below at this newly released artifact from the Kurt Cobain death scene. More »

Her death at 25 is described as "unexplained and sudden"
Very tragic news to pass along right now … Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof of the Boomtown Rats, has died at the very young age of 25. At this point, police are describing her death as “unexplained and sudden”. Even more tragic, Peaches leaves behind a husband and two small children (her first son was born in 2012). I must admit that I am not very familiar with Peaches because as a British socialite, she didn’t really work much here in the US. I understand she enjoyed a successful career as a television presenter but undoubtedly, her role as mother and wife was her greatest accomplishment. Wow, just 25 years old and gone. More »
