    Ermey was on the NRA board, it seems?

    Which, I mean, the NRA

    They actually retconned his role in Scrubs a few seasons later as maybe not actually the Janitor's dad after all.

    Anyway, I've been chuckling at his role in the Simpsons a lot lately.

    I'm pretty sure he was actually the Janitor's dad (if not, the scene where he says "good bye son" makes absolutely no sense). The Janitor just, you know, lies constantly about everything all the time.

    There was an episode late in the run of Invader Zim where R. Lee Ermey voices another Gunney-like character who constantly berates and insults Zim and several other aliens sent to him for training. Since it was a kids show they replaced all the swears with fake alien swears and anatomy parts. In the commentary they mention how he stopped in the middle of the recording to ask who the hell wrote those lines.

    That always struck me as a funny image.

    Anyway, I know people who met him and worked with the guy and they all liked him a bunch. Hopefully he leaves behind a more positive legacy than just that one villain he played that people (including Ermey himself) forgot was a villain.

    Oh that's the episode where Zim survived boot camp by sacrificing his squad mates on the obstacle course, right?

    Ermey was pro-Trump, supported the NRA, his iconic role was an abusive asshole, why the fuck is anyone mourning his loss?

    If human life doesn't have an inherent value then everyone must somehow prove themselves in order to be worthy of mourning or worthy of living.

    I'd rather believe that human life has inherent value and even the death of someone I dislike can be mourned without having to prove that the person was somehow worthy of it.

    Everybody is dying all the time. If you mourned everybody you'd never stop mourning

    Still, why bother saying that you're not going to mourn somebody? Seems like a waste of time

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    I don't know R. Lee Ermey personally. I have an idea of some of his beliefs and political views.

    I liked his performance in several movies and TV shows.

    I'm not going to mourn him but I will miss him popping up in a show or movie once in awhile and usually making me laugh a little.

    In other celebrity death news, just found out that Harry Anderson, Judge Stone from Nightcourt, passed away.
    Was he a terrible person, or is it okay to feel the loss of a star that I enjoyed watching when I was younger?

    I will absolutely mourn Harry Anderson.

    Night Court was a personal favorite when I was a kid.

    I'm going to listen to some Mel Torme in his honor tomorrow.

    i recommend doing what you feel is right, and anyone who judges you for it wasn't really worth your consideration anyway

    I remember Harry Anderson mainly for starring in the 1988 made-for-TV remake of "The Absent-Minded Professor," which I was fascinated with due to "talking" Macintosh computer (which I later found out to be just extensive HyperCard chicanery)

    "Value", as in "what I value/what you value", is a choice, therefore entirely subjective. There is no inherent value to life, human or otherwise.

    However, if you choose to value life; that is, if you make decisions that enhance and preserve life, then you will find that, since Ermey was pro-Trump and supported the NRA, then you will find your decisions stymied by his, therefore making him your enemy.

    I do not mourn the death of enemies, but I do mourn the friends that my enemies could have become.

    It seems odd... Sure, let's say odd that folks would describe Ermey as an enemy to life itself for being a Trump Supporter.

    He was 74 when he passed away and Trump has been a political figure for three years?

    And beyond that Ermey wasn't, to my knowledge, in any position to influence or change policy.

    So saying he was the enemy of life for voting R in the last years of life comes across as extreme to me?

    No? Trying to view the world as split between enemy an friend is what led me to help bomb the shit out people in Iraq without actually learning whole lot about them. It's an inherently destructive point of view that narrows your ability to see other people as people. People, even people I disagree with, are inherently worthy of life.
    People are complex and trying to boil them down to "friend or enemy" is a great way to lose the former and gain a lot of the latter.

    Cool

    How come other countries seem to be able to make soldiers without screaming at them about their genitals, maybe it's a really subtle ingredient, like a bay leaf
