    well bollocks! Now I'm going to miss out on his very thpecial description on what's going on in the night sky. No more Tomita theme song... A sad day for PBS losing a mainstay from their midnight to 12:15am slot.

    I mock but, it really did become a cultural fixture like Bob Ross was. Not incredibly important in the overall scheme of things, but the world is smaller.

    It took me a minute but I suddenly remembered who he was. We used to watch him all the time and I'd get a kick outta just watching and listening to him. :lol:
    RIP!
