Seems that a couple of odd web pages have come my way today. The first one was a list of all of the characters, guest stars, voice actors etc. that have died and appeared on the Simpsons. It includes people like Phil Hartman, Doris Grau, Steve Allen, etc. You can now date the episode based on which characters speak or not or the guest star that appeared.
The next is the Top Earning Dead Stars including Elvis at number 1 and J.R.R. Tolkein and Robert Ludlum. It's cool to think that you can earn money after you're dead - or even earn more money than when alive. Much like a deceased humour/sci-fi author who continued to sell Mac hardware and software (the movie still works BTW) well after he was dead.
Of course, this couldn't be a 2002 post about death without the inevitable September 11th reference. Amazing and ghoulish.
