Gary Gygax - The creator of Dungeons and Dragons is dead at 69 since yesterday. I didn't know him that well, or at all actually.

Jeff Healy, great Canadian musician. If you like blues, and are ever in Toronto, check out his bar. Live music everyday from like 3 in the afternoon till 2 am. It's the tits.

Arthur C. Clark - Dead at 90.

He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, and foresaw the concept of communication satellites.

Sir Arthur's detailed descriptions of space shuttles, super-computers and rapid communications systems inspired millions of readers.

When asked why he never patented his idea for communication satellites, he said: "I did not get a patent because I never thought it will happen in my lifetime."

In the 1940s, he maintained man would reach the moon by the year 2000, an idea dismissed at the time.

It makes me sad when funny celebrities die. Most of them I don't even think twice about, but when someone who made me laugh dies, that affects me.
