Very sad. He suffered from dementia for the last 4 years, apparently.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Can I be the second person to say FUCK in response to a Python death.


RIP Terry.  You can rest proud that - of three films banned in Ireland - you were director of two of them :-D

John Cleese's sweary eulogy to Graham Chapman being the first, if memory serves?

Yup - I'm sure I'm far from the second in reality - very very far ;)


Just been reading his obituary, I'd forgotten about his historical stuff, I did like that very much.  I still occasionally use at term he coined (I presume) 'business-wench' - he was a big advocate of addressing the writing out of history of women.

<lifts jaw off desk> Clever bloke.  Dementia is a horrible way to go, and not just for those around you.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Here's a youtube video of a bloke I know improvising on the Liberty Bell theme. I think Terry Jones would have approved.
