One of my great manias is the making of lists. In the next couple days I'll do a round-up of who we lost in interesting culture in 2010. Occasionally it takes concerned relatives a few days to realize that they haven't heard from this recluse or that, like Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton's solitary demise in 2009. No one knows what day he died, precisely. Sad, true, etc. I suspect the coroner could have guessed, but he'd probably have had to ask the bugs.
Have a happy 2011. If you live, of course.
