I'm still waiting for Left Shark to go on tour with Backpack Kid, who became famous when Perry hosted Saturday Night Live a couple of years ago.

Frank Losonsky ,the last survivor of the "flying tigers" , otherwise known  formally as the first american volunteer group of the chinese air force,  has died aged 99. 

They were a group of volunteers compromised of US pilots from the United States air corps and navy and marine corps,  tasked with defending China against Japanese attack during world war two. The end of an era as they say.

Any excuse to post a link to that story about how Paul Simon was a bullshitter of the highest order and would have been killed by South African militants had Little Stevie Van Zandt not intervened.

Best-known outside of Germany maybe for the "Stalingrad" movie. And "The Harmonists" was one of Bill Clinton's favorite movies of that year...

And stop posting Instagram posts too. Can't you just write a sentence and put a link like everyone? Don't be offended, but I find it pretty unnerving. And the vast part of those posts actually don't carry information, only are old photos of old actresses on their birthday, celebrated on Instagram by some perfect unknown. What's the purpose of that?

I just found out Lynn Cohen died, mainly from a Tumblr post as I have a friend obsessed with Sam Claflin. I will only remember her as Mags from Hunger Games (can't remember if i've seen her in anything else).
