HAL 9000 is dead - Officially

Douglas Rain, the voice of HAL 9000, passed away Sunday, Nov. 11th, 2018:

Quote
Douglas Rain passed away this morning at the age of 90 at St. Marys Memorial Hospital of natural causes. 

Rain was one of the few surviving members of the Festival’s founding company.   During his career, he spent 32 seasons in Stratford.

In a media release, Stratford Festival Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino commented on Rain’s passing, “Canadian theatre has lost one of its greatest talents and a guiding light in its development.  Douglas Rain was that rare artist: an actor deeply admired by other actors. The voice of HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey, Douglas shared many of the same qualities as Kubrick’s iconic creation: precision, strength of steel, enigma and infinite intelligence, as well as a wicked sense of humour.

Stan Lee of Marvel also died. It seems that God needs people to do a production of some sort in heaven. I wish He would leave them here instead. I miss them.
So sue me

Stan Lee had a marvelous, fun, adventure-filled journey through life. His characters and all of his creations will live on. He gave us so much enjoyment! RIP

Born: Stanley Martin Lieber, Dec 28, 1922, New York City, U.S.

Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher. He was formerly editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman before leaving the company to become its chairman emeritus, as well as a member of the editorial board.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

The name of my bot Siseneg is actually from a Dr. Strange Marvel Comic series that tells the story of a Magician from the 31st Century traveling back in time to the Big Bang, absorbing all mystic energy as he went to become God. What a story.

And how I got the idea of him traveling time and owning a time machine.

There's a chance to see HAL's swan song in 2010 late night tonight on Turner Classic Movies. Check local listings.

Dr. Chandra - "Do you want me to stay with you?"

HAL 9000 - "No, it is better for the mission if you leave."


Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
