R.I.P. Bud

Per kalogrenant — it is my sad duty to report that one of my favorite actors just died last night: Carlo Pedersoli, better known as Bud Spencer.

He's best known for his comedic spaghetti westerns, of course, but he was a gifted man of many talents who was (among other things) an actor, legal scholar, Olympic swimmer, stuntman, inventor, singer and composer, pilot, author, fashion designer, music producer, water polo player, airline founder/owner, and more.

Here's to you, Bud.
