Bill Paxton (1955 – 2017)


It’s been a few days, so I think I’m finally ready to say something about the death of my favorite living actor, Bill Paxton. I’d always been a fan of his from stuff like Weird Science and Aliens which we saw over and over again when it came out–I was a junior in high school. […]
