Tera Wray Static, the widow of STATIC-X frontman and founder Wayne Static and former adult film star, was found dead late last night of an apparent suicide, a longtime associate of Wayne She was 33 years old.

According to AVN, Wray, who was born Tera Lents, met Wayne during the Ozzfest tour in 2007 when she was modeling for Hustler lingerie. They were married in January 2008 and she retired from porn in August of that year.

A friend of Tera's named Rik Marin posted the following message in the comments section"I spent all day yesterday with Tara [sic]. We had lunch hung out and talked about life without Wayne she show no indication that she was going to take her life. She did talk about fighting the

depression for the past 2 years since Wayne had passed..I was shocked when I got the call at 1 am that she had passed.. Instead of hating we should all be happy that Tara had made Wayne so happy he really loved Tera. And put in a track of EVIL DISCO and remember Wayne and

the woman he loved...it's really hard for us friends of Wayne n Tera to read these comments..keep Disco EVIL in remembrance of Wayne. I loved you both an will miss are good times at the Dirthouse.."

Static was married to Wayne Static, the enigmatic frontman of metal band Static-X, who passed away in early November of 2014 from a mixture of strong prescription drugs and alcohol.

No further details regarding her passing have been released but this is an incredibly sad story to write.

As many of you know, I’ve battled my own demons in the past when it came to suicide. I know what absolute bottom feels like and to know that Tera felt that she was at that place just breaks my heart.

I beg of anyone who feels like they’re alone and there’s nothing left to live for to reconsider. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. If you are not in the United States, please utilize whatever resource you have available to you.

Tera, I hate that you chose this path but I truly hope you rest in peace.

Harry Potter-Themed Shots Will Have You Chasing After ‘That Flighty Temptress, Adventure

More: alcohol, harry potter, shots
Recently, there’s been news of a Harry Potter themed bar and restaurant called The Lockhart. Unfortunately, we can’t all visit Toronto and get a seat at The Lockhart. That’s okay because these Harry Potter-themed shooters from Graphic Nerdity can help fill the void in your very own home.

Sorry young fans, this is strictly for the 21+ crowd.
Called “Harry Shotters,” the themed shots are punnily-named and filled with a bevy of booze. As Graphic Nerdity says, “These drinks are not for beginners. By that I mean only experienced Harry Potter fans will appreciate the puns that went into making them.” Judging by the ingredients for the Avada Tequila, these shooters are indeed not for beginner drinkers — or experienced ones, even. Most of these concoctions probably taste as good as Polyjuice Potion. But hey, we all know how well that works!* *Wears off quickly and is not a surefire disguise, so drink these shots with caution.

With all that ginger, gin seems the more appropriate match only because it better represents Ginny and her feistiness.

 Tabasco sauce? This one will certainly leave wounds in your mouth.
There were some other ideas that Graphic Nerdy didn’t see through, for unknown reasons. Lord Vodkamort, Flourish & Blattoed  and Cognac McLaggen were left off the list. Personally I’d love to see whatFlourish & Blattoed is. If you’re more of a visual person, these drawings of the shots from Michelle Richard may help you better understand how crazy of a night you’ll have after a round of them. Because we’re all fans here, please share more ideas for Harry Shotters.  
 
  After seeing the amazing recipes from http://graphicnerdity.com/, I decided to make my own version of “Harry Shotter”.   Go like https://www.facebook.com/michellericharddesign for more of my work!!!

Gene Wilder Biography Author, Actor, Comedian (1933–)

Gene Wilder - Willy Wonka (TV-14; 01:14) Watch a short video about Gene Wilder to learn how he recovered after the loss of his wife Gilda Radner.

Synopsis

Gene Wilder began his movie career in 1967's Bonnie and Clyde, but he became famous as a favorite of writer/director Mel Brooks. His wacky roles in films such as Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory made him an unforgettable comedy icon. In his later years, Wilder has become a serious novelist, writing a memoir and several novels.

Early Life

Gene Wilder was born Jerome Silberman in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on June 11, 1933, to a Jewish family. His father, William, had emigrated from Russia. His mother, Jeanne, was often ill from complications from rheumatic heart disease, and a doctor warned the 8-year-old Jerome, "Don't ever argue with your mother... you might kill her. Try to make her laugh." These circumstances began Wilder's lifelong calling to acting, as he made his mother laugh by putting on different accents. After a brief stint in a California military academy, Wilder moved back to Milwaukee and became involved with the local theater scene, making his stage debut as Balthasar in a production of Romeo and Juliet. After graduating from high school, Wilder studied communication and theater arts at the University of Iowa, following that with a year studying theater and fencing at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol, United Kingdom. He returned to the United States to study the Stanislavski method of acting but was promptly drafted into the U.S. Army for two years, during which time he worked as a medic in Pennsylvania. Next, Wilder moved to New York City, where he took a variety of odd jobs, including a position as a fencing teacher, to support himself while he studied acting.

Early Career

At age 26, Wilder decided that he "couldn't quite see a marquee reading 'Jerry Silberman as Macbeth'" and took the stage name Gene Wilder. He took his new first name from a character in a Thomas Wolfe novel, and his last from the playwright Thornton Wilder. He started appearing with some regularity in off-Broadway and Broadway shows. In a 1963 production ofMother Courage and Her Children, he met Anne Bancroft, who introduced him to her boyfriend, Mel Brooks. Wilder and Brooks became fast friends, and Brooks decided he wanted to cast Wilder in a production of the screenplay he was writing, The Producers.

Film Career

Wilder made his film debut with a minor role in 1967's Bonnie and Clyde. He took on his first major role in The Producers, playing Leo Bloom against Zero Mostel's Max Bialystock. The film was a box office flop and received mixed reviews, but Wilder earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He quickly became an in-demand commodity in Hollywood, taking parts in several comedies, including the idiosyncratic title character inWilly Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Willy Wonka brought to life the weird and wild Roald Dahl book of the same name, and it thoroughly established Gene Wilder as a leading man who could hold his own in any comedic situation. As the enigmatic Wonka, Wilder chewed the scenery right into a Golden Glove nomination for best actor and became known to a legion of young film-goers.

Despite Wilder's personal success, though, none of his films of this period met with much commercial success. He finally broke that streak with a role in Woody Allen's 1972 film Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask). He then took a last-minute role in Mel Brooks' 1974 comedy Blazing Saddles, a decision that would help define his career.

Blazing Saddles was a western like no other, and it set out to offend every viewer equally. Now a cult classic, the movie set Wilder on a path through his other classic films, including four with Richard Pryor: Silver Streak (1976), Stir Crazy (1980), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989) and Another You (1991).

Stir Crazy, in which Wilder and Pryor played prison inmates, was a notable hit, and like Blazing Saddles before it, the film helped to cement Wilder's reputation as a comedy legend.

Wilder began writing and starring in more films in 1974, starting with Young Frankenstein (in which he played Dr. Frederick Frankenstein). Like Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein set out to turn an established genre, this time horror, on its head. Starring Wilder as the infamous Dr. Frankenstein's grandson, the movie is unrelenting in its jokes and sight gags, and audiences have been connecting with it since the day it hit theaters.

Wilder also wrote, directed and starred in 1975's The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother and 1977's The World's Greatest Lover. WhileYoung Frankenstein was a hit and achieved a huge cult following, the others failed to gain positive critical response and were commercially unsuccessful.

A Comparison Between the Distance Frodo and Sam Walked in ‘Lord of the Rings’ to Distances on Maps of Earth

USA LotR walking comparison

Imgur user mattsawizard calculated the distances for each leg of Frodo and Sam’s epic journey around Middle-earth in The Lord of the Rings and made visual distance comparisons on maps of Britain, Europe, and the United States. He determined that the entire journey spanned a total of 1,350 miles walked (though he does note that part of their journey from Lorien to Amon Hen was in a boat), which is about the same distance from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas.

Europe LotR walking comparison If London were Hobbiton, walking to Mount Doom would be like walking to Niš, Serbia.

LotR walking comparison 3 From Hobbiton to Bree would be similar to going from London to Nottingham, which is 120 miles, or 40 hours walking.

LotR walking comparison 2 From Bree to Rivendell would be like walking from Land’s End to London, which is 300 miles, or 90 hours walking.

LotR walking comparison 1 From Rivendell to Moria would be 175 miles, or 60 hours walking, spanning the same distance as from Manchester to London.
