Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Monty Python star Terry Jones has died at the age of 77, his agent has said.

Jones was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2016.MA statement released by his family said: “We are deeply saddened to have to announce the passing of beloved husband and father, Terry Jones.

“Terry passed away on the evening of 21 January 2020 with his wife Anna Soderstrom by his side after a long, extremely brave but always good humoured battle with a rare form of dementia, FTD.

“Over the past few days his wife, children, extended family and many close friends have been constantly with Terry as he gently slipped away at his home in north London.


The statement continued: “We have all lost a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man whose uncompromising individuality, relentless intellect and extraordinary humour has given pleasure to countless millions across six decades.

RIP
"Jones published a number of articles on political and social commentary, principally in newspapers The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent and The Observer. Many of these articles criticised the War on Terror, belittling it as "declaring war on an abstract noun" and comparing it to attempting to "annihilate mockery"

It’s strange how such a celebrity, who otherwise may simply be a complete stranger, can leave such a strange feeling of loss.
Maybe it’s because I grew up surrounded by such comedy?

RIP....
I saw LIFE OF BRIAN at a theater in Kansas, USA in 79...might of been 80...it was at a budget $1.00us theater...
I ate a bag of dried mushrooms and went in to see it.
cried laughing...became a piece of chewed gum on the seat.
I thought one scene was just a hallucination.
It was many years later when I was able to watch against and see it was indeed still in the movie.
A real gift to grow up with the entire cast.
