The Departed of 2010

For 2010, we say goodbye to three great comedians, and one oracle.

No, not that Oracle.

Two of them are icons of Philippine cinema. One of them an eternally white-haired Caucasian. And the other, an oracle with tentacles.

I said no, not that Oracle.

Some icons I have failed to honor, like the master animator slash psychonaut Art Clokey. Months had passed before I learned of Clokey's death, and I didn't want to give the impression that I've been living under a rock. So save for Clokey, the names of the departed link back to their individual obituaries.
