!! OMG, RIP: Game Of Thrones actor J.J. Murphy dies 4 days into filming !!

Actor J.J Murphy, an accomplished actor and member of the Season 5 Game Of Thrones cast, has died 4 days into his role as Ser Denys Mallister, the oldest member of the Night’s Watch.

According to his agent Phillip Young, Murphy was “absolutely delighted”, to be cast “in one of the biggest productions in the world at this stage in his career.”
Having been working in the Northern Irish theatre scene from the late 1940s, Murphy was an active member of Equity, the British actors’ union, and had worked for years at Belfast’s Lyric Theatre. His death, says Young, is a “tragic loss” and comes at the end of a “long and full career”.

The actor collapsed on Friday, and no word yet whether or not Game Of Thrones’ producers intend to recast his role or not. RIP, J.J.!

!! OMG, way to tug on our heart-strings! Archie Andrews will meet his fate while saving his gay friend In ‘ARCHIE’ comic book series !!

Will Archie Andrews die today?! According to Jon Goldwater, co-Ceo of Archie Comics — YES!

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in today’s (Wednesday’s) instalment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics‘ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay friend Kevin Keller! And the subtext is laid on THICK!

“The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.”

Keller‘s character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In Life with Archie, Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.

Archie dies, Riverdale is reborn.”

As sad as we are about the whole dying part — we give a big YES to all of this in terms of the message they’re attempting to send. We think it’s great that not only will the comic tackle gun-control issues (which obviously needs to be heavily addressed at this particular moment in time in the US) but also the camaraderie and strong gay-straight alliance between the friends.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the story line of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

RIP Archie!

!! OMG, part of your world: Prophet drowns during cleansing ceremony, family blame mermaids !!

Oh, this is some proper “Undah Da Sea” type shit!
A “self-styled prophet”, Simbarashe Kamupondera, drowned in the Ruwa River on Wednesday when he was swept away by a strong current during a cleansing ceremony in Epworth, Simbabwe! However, the family believes Simbarashe is still alive, and are claiming he was abducted by mermaids (known as Njuzu).

“Simbarashe came to stay with us a month ago. He has been telling us that he had a spirit of a mermaid. He also said that a prophet had prayed for a cloth that he gave him to always tie when getting into the waters. Yesterday he bought a new cloth after he had written his name on the old one saying that he could no longer use it. He tied it today before he got into the water,” Magma Mutingwende, Simbarashe’s sister-in-law said.
We believe that he was taken by a mermaid and we are not going to mourn him because we know that he is coming back,” Magma added.

GURRRL! I know da NILE runs deep, but get a GRIP! Somehow I don’t think it was Ariel this time. This all sounds a bit FISHY!
When a news crew arrived on the scene, Magma was already all packed up and getting ready to leave the river banks with her two friends who are also congregants of the small apostolic sect because it “was getting dark”.

“We have not told his wife as yet and we know that he is coming back.” Magma added.

…hopefully she catches this then. RIP Simbarashe!

!! OMG, shop ’til you drop: Man commits suicide in mall after girlfriend won’t stop shoe shopping !!

Let this be a cautionary tale: Don’t date materialistic bitches!
38-year-old Tao Hsiao was out Christmas shopping at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China this week when he finally lost it over his girlfriend’s amount of Christmas shoe shopping (for herself of course), and leaped 7 stories to his death inside the mall. How awful! According to Gawker:

“He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more,” an eyewitness was quoted as saying. “She started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument.”

Okay — ladies in China really need to tone it with their shopping. Just last month another chick lost her shit at her hubby at the Guangzhou Auto Show, and it ’twas not cute!

“This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people,” the spokesman said.

…annnd the spokesman for the mall threw a “BUT” in the statement. Keepin’ it classay.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]
