Ray Bradbury dies at 91



To try and sum up the contribution of Ray Bradbury to science fiction/fantasy, television and film in a few lines is an impossible task, so I will direct you to the L.A. Times obituary here, and share with you this bit of whimsy concocted by Bradbury's good friend Stan Freberg as part of his campaign to sell America on the concept of snacking on pitted prunes. It's probably not the way most people will remember Bradbury, which is why it's the perfect way to honour his memory at the Gunslinger.

Prunes in mini packs and Wall to Wall TV, 2 outta three! Ray was Genius, The Gunslingers tribute equally genius!

At least we've got pneumatic tubes on Futurama. We'll get there eventually.

This is my father's commercial. Ray was a dear friend. He will be missed terribly. This, BTW, is my favorite blog on the internet.
