Ray Harryhausen, Master Of Stop-Motion Animation, RIP

I didn't plan on posting anything so soon again today.  and I certainly didn't plan on posting something like this.  Ray Harryhausen passed away in England today.  he was 92 years old. 

here's slightly more information. 
I'm sure in the near future there will be many well written posts and articles about Ray and his effect on cinema and effects.  all I really want to say is thank you.  he entertained me for years.  the first full movie of his I ever saw was ONE MILLION YEARS, BC (1966) and it cemented my love of dinosaurs for the rest of my life.

RIP Ray, you will be missed and you were one of a kind.

Dinosaurs, prehistoric life, Greek mythology and Arabian Nights tales, all became interesting to me because of Ray Harryhausen. There is never going to be one like him again.
