iwao takamoto r.i.p.

what is it with me and obituaries? hmmmmm ... i do love reading them, and have a preference for those in english newspapers. my tradition teaches that when someone dies, their memory should be for a blessing. if i note the death of someone whose life/work gave me pleasure, it feels like a way of thanking them. remembering how they touched my life is a blessing for me.

thence mr takamoto.

creator of scooby doo, astro (the jetsons' dog) and muttley.

when i was in single digits i never missed any of these cartoons (and i do have a wacky races video in my home right now). thank you, sir.
