Famous Passings This Week

Phyllis Diller, Gong Show co-host (among other things), died this week.
So did Jerry Nelson, the voice of Count von Count who also had a role in Robocop 2. (Buzzfeed tribute with videos and GIFs here.)

Colony Music, housed in Times Square's famous Brill building, will close in September, the same month that The Office starts its final season. And hippie-dippy weirdo label New Albion is going out of business too.
