Aside from the mere incidence of someone's death, the passing of famous people rarely ripples through the lives of most. Yet the passing of Alan Rickman, in polite pursuit of David Bowie (one assumes he waited a few days so as not to steal too much limelight) has sliced through public awareness like a hot chainsaw through room temperature butter. From Gruber to Nottingham he was an icon of my childhood and with Snape he defined the same for many others. If you're going to catch up with any of his movies this weekend may I recommend Truly, Madly, Deeply. It'll be the one that makes you cry.
In business they say niche is good so this week's Friday Goodness is a celebration of Alan Rickman's voice.
Godspeed to you, Sir.
As for the rest of you, have a splendid weekend.
