    Jack Layton's Letter To Canadians

    Written two days before his death today, a poignant, inspiring letter from Jack Layton has made its way around the internet. If you haven't got a chance to read it - even if you're not Canadian and have only a vague idea of who Jack Layton is - please do so. It's a powerful message to leave to a cou...

    R.I.P. Jack Layton

    What a sad, horrible thing to return to Canada to. Jack Layton, the leader of Canada's New Democratic Party, has died of Cancer. Just four months ago, my Canadian political interest and optimism peaked in the weeks leading up to our federal election, at which point Mr. Layton inspired a nation of cynical lefties (and the entire province of Quebec) to do something extraordinary: Give the NDP their very first official opposition and all-but-destroy the long standing centrist Liberal party. Long a strong, Canadian voice for the working class, for social programs, for minorities, for hope... Layton finally saw his efforts come to fruition that ni...

    R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

    From a text message while wandering New York's Highline for the first time this afternoon, I heard the sad and sadly expected news that Amy Winehouse had passed away at the age of 27. Oddly enough, last night I watched as my mother (here in NYC for the first time) danced to "Rehab" at a East Village...

    Tim Hetherington's Vanity Fair Portfolio

    Following the horribly tragic news of Tim Hetherington's death in Libya today, pay some respect by spending time looking through his photography portfolio at Vanity Fair. It's stunning.

    Elizabeth Taylor's New York Times Obituary Written From The Grave

    Interesting fact: My indieWIRE colleague Eric Kohn pointed out that The New York Times' obituary of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor was written by movie and theater critic Mel Gussow, who himself passed away six years ago. Which says something pretty interesting about media production...

    R.I.P. Elizabeth Taylor

    Even though she was 79 and ill for some time, my heart dropped when I woke up to the news that Elizabeth Taylor.

    R.I.P. Tony Curtis

    Oddly enough, "Some Like It Hot" just screened here in Reykjavik for the festival's annual (and amazing) screening inside a pool (that's right), so it's eerie to then all of a sudden here news of Tony Curtis' death. Especially since it comes in a bizarre three that also includes Sally Menke and Art...

    The Emmys Found One Last Way To Fuck Over "The Wire"

    So while some 50 departed folks ranging from Brittany Murphy to Soupy Sales to Lena Horne had their faces grace the screen during last Sunday's Emmy telecast, a person who made a huge impact on the world of television bizarrely didn't make the cut. Writer and producer David Mills, who died of a brain aneurysm this March at age 48, was not included in the montage. You might ask who Mills is, but if you've seen "The Corner" or "Homicide" or "ER" or "Treme" or "NYPD Blue," you know his work. He also wrote and produced many episodes of inarguably the greatest television series of all time, "The Wire," which was passed over by Emmy time and time ...
