R.I.P. Bill Olsen (and, by extension, Code Red DVD)

It came out last night that Bill Olsen of Code Red passed away. He was such a big personality and memorable figure in the cult home video community, and Bananaman will definitely be missed.

Figured this wasn't far off in the last few months. Dave/Demon posts regular videos on their Dark Force Entertainment Facebook page, and even though he was always in the Bananaman costume, Olsen looked worse and worse each time. In the most recent one (I think), he was asleep in the background but honestly looked like he'd already passed. Strokes are a real bitch. I do hope the label carries on in his honour. It seemed like they had lots of stuff in the pipeline. Were they even involved with Code Red anymore? Seemed like 'old' Code Red titles go through Kino now, or something like that?
