Bad day for Sesame Street and Star Trek fans.

Caroll Spinney, the legendary puppeteer behind Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, has died at age 85. So many children grew up enchanted by his work. Sesame Street wouldn't have been what it was without Spinney's collaboration with Jim Henson.

Not long after hearing about Spinney, I learned that Rene Auberjoinois also died today at age 79, of lung cancer. He had a long career in film, stage, and television, but to me, he was Odo of Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I'm really sad about this one! We already lost Aron Eisenberg this year. Fuck cancer.

And Star Trek The Next Generation's Marina Sirtis (Troi) suddenly lost her husband last night. Just died in his sleep.
