Ray Harryhausen 1920-2013

I came home from the movies this afternoon to discover that one of my movie heroes, Ray Harryhausen, died today. People are putting up much better tributes than I ever could, so let me just say thank you for The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans, four of my all-time favorite movies and some of the most enjoyable cinema I've ever experienced. Thank you for all of it, from a creature lover to a creature maker.
