Some sad news is making the rounds today, as multiple sources report that actress Alice Drummond has passed away at the age of 88.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress June Gable said that her friend Drummond's death is due to health issues brought about by a fall she endured around two months ago.
Drummond will forever hold a place in horror fans' hearts for her scene-stealing performance as the librarian in Ghostbusters (1984).
A Tony-nominated stage actress, Drummond appeared as Nurse Jackson on the Dark Shadows TV series in 1967 and also played Carolyn in the hitman versus feline "Cat From Hell" segment of Tales from the Darkside: The Movie.
Viewers may also remember Drummond as Lucy in Awakenings, Carlotta Douglas in Office Killer, Grandma Dottie in Pieces of April, Sister Veronica in the Doubt film adaptation, and Mrs. Hutton in After.Life, among many other roles.

Following up with the After Life Ep released at the end of last year, French producer Tchami is back with a rowdy new single. The future house mainstay’s latest effort is titled “Siaw,” and is named after the late nineties rap song “Step Into A World” by Krs-One, which is sampled throughout.
“Siaw” sees Tchami blending his usual future house style with rattling bass house riffs. The new track opens with a steady four on the floor lead in, as muted bass tones are gradually layered in. Tchami then breaks things down, cutting out the drums as haunting female vocal samples courtesy of the song’s namesake fill the mix alongside dark atmospheric sounds. “Siaw” then explodes into electrifying drops, with rhythmic, distorted basslines punctuated by shuffling hi-hats and hard hitting kicks.
All in all, “Siaw” is an awesome dancefloor cut that expands the scope of Tchami‘s production prowess. »

In “Our Little Sister,” the Japanese siblings referenced in the title attend three funerals. They share meals frequently and giggle constantly. The four sisters always say “please” and “thank you” and talk about kindness. They garden, give each other pedicures and borrow one another’s clothes. As graphic novel estrogen-fests go, it’s a tale that rivals the complete output of Alison Bechdel.
