I just heard from my Finnish girlfriend that the actor who played Santa Clause for all the tv shows and big events in Finland for the last 20 year's has died of cancer...

Well, that's the finish of him.

German policeman Karl-Heinz Kurras is dead:
 
It's really a quite significant death for Germany, and it's apparently a year full of important german deaths.

  

German intellectual Fritz Raddatz is dead:
 
Another big german death as he was one of the most important german intellectuals, as a publisher, columnist and critic.

  

Two important german deaths in the news today:
 
Karl Moik, the austrian inventor of the most popular "Volksmusik"-TV show in the german-speaking countries is dead at 76:

It was the kind of show full of yodelling, alpine clothing and faint regret of losing World War II that people aged 60+ loved.
 
Also dead: "Emmely", Germany's most famous cashier. Her multi-billion dollar supermarket chain fired her instantly after 30 years of employment because she payed herself out two unused deposit bottle coupons (do you know what I mean?) worth 1,30€. She sued the company and won and got her job back:
 
She died at 57 after a heart attack.


Surely if it really is a year for significant German deaths then that's a cast iron guarantee that Kohl isn't making it through another winter!

Musical Director and composer for hundreds of Tamil cinema movies, M S Viswanathan, 87. http://www.newindian...icle2919555.ece

 

I'll guarantee a UK obit. Not picked for the DDP this year far as I can tell.

I'll try to find out what a spot-boy is, but he was doing it for Mr. Khan for 25 years.

 

Edit: So a spot-boy is just someone who does the dirty, mundane jobs on set.

 

 

kind of like i rent boy i imagine

 

Indeed, that was my first association. Though I wonder if such a person would get lots of obits.
