I Just Knew Harry Would Be the Next Twin Peaker to Pass

As I sat watching the new 'Twin Peaks' TV show over the last few weeks I couldn't quell the thought that Harry Dean Stanton would pass away right after the show ended its run.
And I mean like September to be specific ... but you can't really call someone's death while they are still living in "the real world" now, can you?
Plus, I'd have egg on my face if I made that call and Harry didn't pass on, wouldn't I?
Some cards are just best kept to the chest instead of laying them out on the table. 
Harry Dean Stanton, Repo Man, Twin Peaks Star, dies aged 91
"Harry Dean Stanton, whose scruffy looks and off-beat demeanour made him a favourite of directors seeking a character actor to add eccentricity or melancholy to the screen, has died from natural causes, his agent said. 
He was 91.
Stanton, who appeared in some 70 movies and many television shows including
Repo Man, Paris, Texas and most recently
David Lynch's reboot of television's Twin Peaks, died peacefully at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, his agent John Kelly said in a statement.
Stanton's final on-screen role can be seen in the upcoming film

My favourite Harry Dean Stanton movie (so far) is 'Repo Man', so I guess I'll have to have a plate of shrimp/prawns to honour Harry's memory tonight, while I listen to the 'Paris, Texas' and 'Repo Man' soundtracks that I have on CD.
Plate of Shrimp/Prawns and the Raw Prawn/Trickster
"Forget football season, Halloween, and the return of all things pumpkin spice — for the Bubba Gumps of the world, fall means one thing: all-you-can-eat shrimp.
Red Lobster's never-ending parade of seafood, known as Endless Shrimp, is back this September."
It's hard to Trump Gump I think;-)

Repo Man/127 Sync
"A shrimp boat captain who was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico during Hurricane Irma is back at home after he was rescued by a cruise ship."
If you have been reading Chris Knowles's series of posts about the siren's song and the shepard boy, then you'll know just how spookily synchronistic a guy named Sheperd drowning because of Hurricane Irma was -

Harry also passed away smack-bang in the middle of the
Yemassee Shrimp Festival dates of September 14-16, as well.
Coincidence or just a plate of shrimp?-)
First-ever detection of shrimp disease in US raises industry concerns
"Officials in the United States have reported the country’s first-ever case of Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS), raising concerns from shrimp industry leaders about what the government will do to contain it.
The disease targets farmed
Penaeid shrimp, usually affecting shrimp postlarvae within a month of stocking. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Institutes of Health the disease, technically called acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease, has a 

nearly 100 percent mortality rate.
EMS was first found in southern China seven years ago, and it had spread to other parts of Asia in the following years. In 2013, the disease ravaged the Mexican shrimp industry, causing production to drop by about 50 percent.

I also notice that Harry is the third big name actor from the
'Alien' movie franchise to pass away in 2017, behind John Hurt and Bill Paxton.
The franchise which got underway with the first 'Alien' film by director Ridley Scott, which starred Harry Dean Stanton as Brett and John Hurt as Kane.
Harry also played a character named HARVEY in a movie named 'aLIEn Autopsy', a humouristic reconstruction of the 1995 scandal when two British lads were accused of having faked a documentary from the Roswell incident in 1947.
But that rabbit hole is way too big to go down here in this post.
