    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Harry Dean Stanton

    What a brilliant actor. Working right up until he died, aged 91, making magic on screen.

    I am just gobsmacked by how many of my friends are remembering him as a harmless, outdated role model for "sex positivity." I don't care how interesting the articles in Playboy were - I think he was a creep.


    https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...r-91-dark-side

    Many remembrances ignored the darkest chapters of Hefner’s life.

    The biggest of these came in 1984, when Hollywood director Peter Bogdanovich published the book The Killing of the Unicorn, a love letter to his late partner, Playboy playmate Dorothy Stratten, and invective against the role Playboy supposedly had in her eventual murder.

    On Stratten’s first night as a playmate, Bogdanovich claims, Hefner forced himself on her in his infamous jacuzzi grotto. (Publishers removed the word “rape” under pressure from Hefner’s lawyers.) Life in the Playboy dominion was fearful and exploitative for Stratten, Bogdanovich says, to the point that she married an abusive man for protection. Her husband shot Stratten to death, then himself, in 1980.

    “[Bogdanovich] buys the continuum between centerfolds and ax murders,” wrote Rolling Stone in 1986. “The notion that when women are presented as passive receptacles of male sexual pleasure, anything can and will happen, that what trivializes women can kill them too.”

    Hefner denied the accusation and reciprocated with allegations of his own. Amid an all-consuming media war, the original charges were soon forgotten.

    Other news outlets are reporting it now.

    My first thought was Stevie Nicks, because I saw her twice within the past year and she pretty much talked about him non-stop at both shows (which also featured a few tributes to Prince).

    He just wrapped up his tour. A few of my friends went to see him.

    FAKE NEWS!1! has been trying to kill Tom Petty for years. I remember about 20 years ago, a local DJ started a rumor that he died. He played it completely straight. My mom burst into tears, as she was a huge fan of his.

    Though it seems unlikely, hopefully he pulls through this.

    ETA: His daughter posted on Instragram. He's definitely not dead. I can't imagine how awful it feels to go through what she's going through and have all of these publications race to be the first to call his death and memorialize him, just for the sake of being first.
