The Cricket’s Daily 3: Ray Harryhausen, maker of monsters, dies

Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• Ray Harryhausen, the stop-motion genius who made movie monsters move in the days before computer animation and inspired generations of filmmakers (as well as the restaurant in "Monsters, Inc."), has died at the age of 92. Among his movies were "Mighty Joe Young" (1949), "Twenty Million Miles to Earth" (1957), "One Million Years B.C." (1966) and the original "Clash of the Titans" (1980).

• Singer Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in a federal prison, for failure to pay taxes on $1.5 million she earned from 2005 to 2007. [Vulture]

• Margaret Groening died in Portland, Ore., at the age of 94. She was the mother of Matt Groening, creator of "The Simpsons," so you’ll find some familiar Springfield names in her obituary, from her maiden name (Wiggum) to the names of her kids (including daughters Maggie and Lisa). [Gawker]
