Michael Jackson has just died recently of a heart attack. I think it was Kira (or that could just be the meds talking...) Ideas, comments and opinions?

He died of cardiac arrest, not a heart attack. Completely different. Get your facts straight, please.

I thought Kira was killed by Ryuk? How could he have killed MJ? :confused:

And on a side note, when I first heard that MJ died, I thought they meant Michael Jordan. Anyone else think the same thing?

They refer to it as cardiac arrest several times in the movie and cardiac arrest is usually caused by a heart attack.

Oh way to ruin it for us. You know, some of us put a lot of hope into believing it was all real. Now I'm crushed. :(

I agree, I think its your meds talking.

Theres already a thread talking about Michael's death. Adding an anime theme doesnt give it a reason to start one somewhere else on the board. Joke about this outside the board and not spread gossip.

Honestly, they would be huge idiots to believe something like that.

This thread is incredibly insensitive. =|

While probably no one here knew Michael Jackson personally, not to sound like a rambling hippie but he was a person just like all of us. His death deserves just as much respects as anyone else's.

You could have at least waited to make this joke. Or at least made a blog entry rather than a thread.

If I thought anime was real, I would say that it still isn't Kira's job. Michael Jackson didn't do anything wrong. Kira kills only murders. And as I know Michael Jackson isn't one.

P.S. What's with the title? Why the first murder? There are many people who died from heart attacks, just that they are unknown. I mean not famous. And besides Kira is already dead long ago and Michael Jackson died just a few days ago.

His next victim has been decided.

Fred Travalena, the master impressionist and singer whose broad repertoire of voices ranged from Jack Nicholson to Sammy Davis Jr. to Bugs Bunny, has died. He was 66.

Travalena, who began being treated for an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2002 and saw the disease return last July after going into remission in 2003, died Sunday at his home in Encino, according to his publicist, Roger Neal. Travalena also was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003 but had been in complete remission since then.

Dubbed "The Man of a Thousand Faces" and "Mr. Everybody," Travalena emerged on the national stage as an impressionist in the early 1970s.

Over the next three decades, he was a headliner in Las Vegas, Reno and Atlantic City, performed in concerts around the country, appeared on "The Tonight Show" and other talk shows and starred in his own specials, such as "The Many Faces of Fred Travalena" and "Comedy in the Oval Office."

The boyish-faced entertainer is said to have had a repertoire of more than 360 celebrity, political and cartoon-character voices, including Clint Eastwood, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro, Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld, Johnny Mathis, Bruce Springsteen and Luciano Pavarotti.


"I've known impressionists who have reached a wall where they can't do any more [voices]," Travalena told the Omaha World Herald in 1996. "I don't have that problem, thank God."

In one part of his act, Travalena physically and vocally "morphed" into all of the U.S. presidents, from John F. Kennedy up to George W. Bush.

He also was known to sing "Have I Told You Lately" in various voices, including Kermit the Frog ("Have I told you lately that I love you"), Katharine Hepburn ("Have I told you there's no one else above you") and Frank Sinatra ("You fill my heart with gladness . . . ")

The imaginative entertainer even did Sinatra imitating Boy George.

Of Italian and Irish heritage, Travalena was born Oct. 6, 1942, in the Bronx, N.Y., and grew up on Long Island.

When it came to impressions, he had an early role model: his father, a onetime entertainer who sang and performed comedy and impressions.

"He got me doing church shows when I was just a little kid," Travalena recalled in a 1998 interview on "The Crier Report" on Fox News Network. "I used to do an impression of [singer] Johnny Ray."

In school, he said, he learned to deal with bullies by imitating a Martian voice or Porky Pig. And he found he could deflect a teacher's question of why he didn't do his homework by making her laugh with his impression of Crazy Guggenheim, the goofy character played on TV by Frank Fontaine during Jackie Gleason's "Joe the Bartender" sketches.

During a stint in the Army's Special Services, Travalena won the All-Army Entertainment Award for best singer and once impersonated President Lyndon Johnson's voice on the base theater's answering machine to announce the movies and show times.

Although he told the New York Times in 1989 that he was "headed for the commercial art field," Travalena said: "That wasn't getting me up in the morning, and I couldn't get show business out of my mind."

At one point after launching his career as a singer, he and his singer wife, Lois, were performing together at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, D.C.

As recounted in a 1989 New York Times story, Lois surprised her husband by spontaneously asking the audience, "How'd you like to hear Fred do impressions?"

He went on to impersonate Dean Martin, Paul Lynde, Jim Nabors and Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.

"People liked it," he later said.

Travalena reportedly was performing at a resort hotel in the Catskills when impressionist Rich Little was in the audience. After the show, Little congratulated Travalena and later recommended him for a spot in British celebrity journalist David Frost's show at the Riviera in Las Vegas.

Travalena joined Little, Frank Gorshin and other impressionists as a regular on the "ABC Comedy Hour," the 1972 comedy-variety show, which was known in reruns as the "ABC Comedy Hour Presents the Kopycats."

In 1974, he opened for Shirley MacLaine at the old MGM Grand and later opened for other Vegas performers such as Mathis, Davis, Wayne Newton and Andy Williams.

Travalena's talent for vocal mimicry led to a side career dubbing offensive dialogue in feature films bound for airing on television -- including Pesci in "Casino," De Niro in "Brazil" and Sean Connery in "Just Cause."

Travalena made occasional guest appearances on TV series such as "The Love Boat" and "Murphy Brown," as well as on "Hollywood Squares" and other game shows. He also did voices on a number of TV cartoon series and appeared in the 1978 movie "The Buddy Holly Story."

In more recent years, he turned to songwriting and singing and released CDs including "We All Need Love Today" and "The Spirit of America."


For a man of so many voices, re-finding his own voice as a singer was something of a challenge.

"That really scared me for awhile," he told the Reno Gazette-Journal in 1999. "I'd wanted to expand into singing, and two years ago I told my drummer to book a studio. The night before the session, I was ready to cancel.

"I asked myself, 'Who is Fred Travalena? Where is that 19-year-old kid who was a singer? What is my sound?' I just had to get used to it."

Travalena received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Lois; sons Fred IV and Corey; and a granddaughter, Sophia.

So, Kira killed Bugs Bunny with cancer. Wonder why... That makes 6 celebrities this week.

For those who haven't been keeping score,

* David Carradine
* Ed MacMahon
* Farrah Fawcett
* Michael Jackson
* Billy Mays
* Fred Travalena

Kira: 6 Celebrities : 0.

Hmm, another one bites the dust.

Karl Malden (http://www.moviefone.com/celebrity/karl-malden/1151196/main), the Academy Award-winning actor who appeared in some of the most iconic films of the mid-20th century and later found heightened fame on television and in commercials, died on Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was 97.
The actor's family told the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences that he died of natural causes at his home in Brentwood. Malden served as president of the academy from 1989-92.

Malden made his screen debut in 1940 with 'They Knew What They Wanted,' and was universally praised for his role as Mitch in the 1951 classic 'A Streetcar Named Desire.' He won an Oscar for his efforts in the film, co-starring the great Marlon Brando.
His career flourished after that and he scored big with beefy roles as a priest in 'On the Waterfront' (again with Brando) and a warden in 'Birdman of Alcatraz.' Among his more than 50 film credits include: 'Patton,' in which he played Gen. Omar Bradley, 'Pollyanna,' 'Fear Strikes Out,' 'Bombers B-52,' 'Cheyenne Autumn,' and 'All Fall Down.'
One of his most controversial films was 'Baby Doll' in 1956, in which he played a dullard husband whose child bride is exploited by a businessman. It was condemned by the Catholic Legion of Decency for what was termed its "carnal suggestiveness." The story was by 'Streetcar' author Tennessee Williams.

But his greatest fame arrived in the 1970s TV series 'The Streets of San Francisco,' in which he played Detective Mike Stone. Malden also kept his face on television as the pitchman for American Express for over 21 years.
Malden first gained prominence on Broadway in the late 1930s, making his debut in 'Golden Boy' by Clifford Odets. It was during this time that he met Elia Kazan, who later was to direct him in 'Streetcar' and 'Waterfront.'
He steadily gained more prominent roles, with time out for service in the Army in World War II (and a role in an Army show, "Winged Victory.")
'A Streetcar Named Desire' opened on Broadway in 1947 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle awards. Brando's breakthrough performance might have gotten most of the attention, but Malden did not want for praise. Once critic called him "one of the ablest young actors extant."
Malden was known for his meticulous preparation, studying a script carefully long before he stepped into his role.
"I not only figure out my own interpretation of the role, but try to guess other approaches that the director might like. I prepare them, too," he said in a 1962 Associated Press interview. "That way, I can switch in the middle of a scene with no sweat."
"There's no such thing as an easy job, not if you do it right," he added.
He was born Mladen Sekulovich in Chicago on March 22, 1912. Malden regretted that in order to become an actor he had to change his name. He insisted that Fred Gwynne's character in "On the Waterfront" be named Sekulovich to honor his heritage.
The family moved to Gary, Ind., when he was small. He quit his steel job 1934 to study acting at Chicago's Goodman Theatre "because I wasn't getting anywhere in the mills," he recalled.
"When I told my father, he said, 'Are you crazy? You want to give up a good job in the middle of the Depression?' Thank god for my mother. She said to give it a try."
Malden and his wife, Mona, a fellow acting student at the Goodman, had one of Hollywood's longest marriages, having celebrated their 70th anniversary in December.
Besides his wife, Malden is survived by daughters Mila and Cara, his sons-in-law, three granddaughters, and four great grandchildren.

I'm sure every one who's responded to this thread realizes that DeathNote isn't real (On all scales from the canon). That's not the point, I'm sure, of this thread.

It was most likely one's attempt at being jest-ful, or just speaking out with a diluted mind.

In any case, "Ysosrs?"

'Cause we all know the internet is srs bsns,

In any case, haha, your laugh is over, you lost the game. Have fun with life.

Not necessarily true; knowledge is an impossible feat, you know, because all our scientific theories and laws are based on logic, math, and observations, and there's no way to prove that our observations aren't lying to us, and that math and logic aren't the wrong way to think about things, and even if logic, math, and observations are all correct, there's no way to prove that they always will be. Therefore, that nullifies all scientific theories and laws, and with them out of the way, absolutely anything is possible, including the creation of the Death Note series having been a premonition.

Back on topic, any death could have been caused by Kira under the assumption that Kira exists and could not have been caused by Kira under the assumption that Kira does not exist.

That, too, is possible. And if you can prove that it's a pile of nonsense, go right ahead. Otherwise, don't say it is, lest you provide nothing to the discussion that is not already manifested. You think common sense is your friend? Well, it's betrayed you; you have denied a perfectly logical claim without evidence against it, and it's presumably all thanks to your common sense, the "facts" that you view as obvious and that you therefore accept without debate (for instance, you assume that gravity is in effect, yet it is entirely possible that in reality, there is no gravity, and that everything that happens to us and with which we are surrounded is in fact a psychically connected mass hallucination, and that when someone dies, they merely wake up).

Shame on you kids for carrying on with this. You know, I happened to be out in Los Angeles this past week, and throughout yesterday and I saw the incredible amounts of people that came to lend their support and best wishes for the Jackson family, while Anime Expo was going on.

Someone has died. And for what it's worth, especially this soon after, a little bit of decency and respect is due. We're not going to let you have threads just so you can mock the deceased.
