Stan "the Man" Winston is gone
One of my idols growing up is gone. Stan Winston died today. I met him just once, and very briefly, but he was unbelievably cool. If I can find the picture I got taken with him, I'll put it up here. For those who don't know, Stan is responsible for creations such as The Predator, the queen Alien, and the Terminator. Most recently, his studio created the practical version of the Iron Man suit.
He will be missed.
EDIT: my friend Marc (on the far left) sent me his copy of the pic we got to take with the man! We were all like a bunch of giddy school girls for the rest of the night.
"OMG, we just got to meet Stan Winston! He was soooo cool!"
