JOEL SIEGEL HAS DIED

Sad news from ABC-- another film critic has left the movie theater for good. Joel Siegel, who is known to readers of THE CAIRNS BLOG as that guy who walked out of Clerks II and loudly trashed the movie in the theater before storming out, has died. Colon cancer.

I find it interesting that he kept on working right to the end--- I guess being a film critic is such a good gig that nobody ever stops. You just keep going at it until you drop, even if you have cancer. But now I kind of understand why Siegel stormed out of Clerks II. Life is too short to be wasted at a movie you don't like.
