      John Hurt, one of the finest actors of his generation, died on Friday aged 77. Never out of work in 50 years on stage and screen, he played a hugely diverse range of roles.

      Possible best known for Alien, his finest performance was surely in Midnight Express. Notable roles also in 10 Rillington Place, I Claudius, The Elephant Man, The Naked Civil Servant, Nineteen Eighty Four, Indiana Jones/Crystal Skull, Harry Potter and Doctor Who as well as many many parts on stage

      He was also in great demand as a voice actor in Watership Down, Lord of the rings, Black Cauldron, Dogville, The Gruffalo and many many more.

      We have lost one of the greats.

      • And Mary Tyler Moore.
        Groundbreaking actress.


        • RIP Chuck Berry

          Surely one of the most influential musicians of the last century, he influenced the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to name but two.

          His most famous song is probably 'Johnny B Goode' but a favourite of mine is 'No Particular Place To Go'. The lyrics show a rare twist as the title first describes the (apparently) aimless progress of a boy taking his girl on a drive to some romantic spot, and then the long journey home after a seatbelt malfunction stops their fun. Masterful.

          Music like this will never die.

          • A stalwart influence during my formative years as a musician; RIP Sib Hashian.
            Coming to you from sunny America, where freedom, solvency, and now the presidency,
            are all unsurreptitiously counterfeited for your entertainment.

              ICC Profile that Won't Soft Proof?
              Recently I contacted a printer manufacturer to request ICC profiles for their printers.

              The color balance is off on the two right side characters in the Hannibal poster. It looks like you tried darkening the images with a curves adjustment which introduced a lot of noise and turned them...

              Four-color process will give you a richer-looking print than the flat and sometimes lifeless look of a B&W halftone. As pointed out, though, even the slightest variation in ink densities will noticeably...
