I dislike 1991 for several reasons, one of them being that it seems to be the year that has struck a lot of my heroes (famous and non-famous) with pretty devastating illnesses.
It also took away some other pretty influential figures:
July 1st: Michael Landon, who was an American actor, writer, director, and producer, who starred in three popular NBC TV series that spanned three decades. He is widely known for his roles in Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and Highway to Heaven.
October 24th: Eugene Wesley "Gene" Roddenberry,who was an American television screenwriter, producer and futurist, best known for creating the American science fiction series Star Trek.
November 24th: Farrokh Bulsara a.k.a. Freddie Mercury, who was a British musician, best known as the lead vocalist and a songwriter of the rock band Queen.
And it was also the year in which Mendax was discovered to be hacking into an Australian university, into the USAF 7th Command Group in the Pentagon and into other organisations such as Nortel. "Mendax" being Julian Paul Assange.
Shit year was shit. And I was just 7 years old, so I had no clue. :(
