In a world that's slightly less awesome

Don LaFontaine has passed away. Who, you may ask? Let's just say he's the Voice of God. He did amazing work, and as that self-narrated YouTube autobiography (which you can find at the link) shows, he was also a great guy. He will be missed. Movie trailers just ain't ever going to be the same.

Also, I will always kick myself for not trying to get a Don LaFontaine voicemail message after the first time I saw that video.
