Fuck really? Tina Turned and Lucifer Fallen on the same day.
One thing I've realised from these death threads is, if you want to be remembered and have people make a thing of your death, it's very important not to die on the same day as someone more famous than you. The lesser death is always completely overshadowed and basically ignored.
I appreciate his films but have a weird impression of him. he gave a talk at my college and came off as a crass salesman, spent more time hyping and manning his merch table than speaking about the films.
I get the impression that that has been a focus over recent years. In fact I think I've heard him moaning bitterly about how he never made the money he deserved from his early work (Hollywood Babylon was his most lucrative thing) and he wants to make up for at least some of it with merch etc
