Bebop AND Tokyo Godfathers? That's like 2 of my top 5, if not my top 3 right there.

Interview With The Vampire is and always shall remain the best examination of what makes a vampire tick. It changed vampires in media and the public consciousness forever. There are really only two eras of Vampires: Pre-Interview (and Post-Dracula), and Post-Interview. Edward and Bella are, for better or worse, direct descendants of the idea that Vampires are not wholly monsters. Or perhaps, as Rice showed, worse monsters than even Dracula, as they retain their humanity yet still choose to murder.

Lesser writers make their Vampires good guys by having them eat only animals, like us. Rice was brave enough and understood human nature enough to know that humans would always choose the more delicious option.

Dracula is a bad guy in the classical sense. Lewis and Lestat are monsters. You may sympathize with them, and even empathize, but in the end they murder every night simply because the alternative tastes like shit.

Yeah, I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that her work informed or at least influenced pretty much all presentations of vampires in fiction which followed.

Used car cut-rate furniture salesman and former Toronto mayor, Mel Lastman

He was, in many ways, the forerunner of Rob Ford, albeit to a much lesser extent.

Les Emmerson frontman and songwriter for one of our great hippie-era exports, Five Man Electrical Band.

Signs may have been their great #1, but IMO they were a solid band through and through, all the way to the end.

He did his bit and then some. And then some more.

The size of such a loss is incalculable, the more so in a world calling for justice more desperately than ever, but he's earned his rest.

He sure seemed worthless at the time, but compared to Daschle and Schumer I've come to appreciate him a lot more. He wasn't as effective as I would have liked, but he was a lot more effective than those guys. (I guess Schumer's still got time to prove me wrong and I'd be happy for him to do it.)

His biggest mistake was not letting the Republicans nuke the filibuster in 2005. I think he probably would have agreed.

Making everybody who just finished putting together a "celebrities who died in 2021" reel bang their heads on their desks is a pretty good joke to go out on.
