Yesterday we all gasped at the news that Roger Ebert had passed away. It’s difficult to express our feelings of loss and even harder to convey the tremendous influence Ebert has had on us throughout our lives. As a journalist, as a film critic, and as a person he was, in a word, awesome.
Artist Terry Border of Bent Objects (previously featured here) created this simple and moving tribute to the late, great Roger Ebert and we think it’s pretty awesome too.
And so, in memory of Roger Ebert and as a sign of appreciation for the impact he had on us and our gratitude for his presence in our lives, today is officially Thumbs Up Day on the Geyser of Awesome.
