"Black Hole Sun" came up on my Pandora station when I was at the gym this morning, which was a nice (somber, I suppose) little coinkydink.

And if it makes you feel any better re: your own mortality (not to mention morality), Tachy, remember that Roger Ailes died today, too, and that piece of human garbage was a rape ripe old 77. So sometimes the universe takes those crusty old guys, too!

Thanks, Gorks. smile

Chris was my favourite singer-songwriter, and I know it sounds stupid but I'm actually pretty gutted over this.  I'd been feeling a bit of dread lately for my favourite living guitarist, who's getting up there in age.  No, I'm not superstitions but I certainly shan't be stating his name.


...and that piece of human garbage was a rape ripe old 77.


77 is not terribly far in my future, should I manage to survive that long :-/

Not stupid at all, my chum. Stuff like this always sucks--especially when it's sudden.

77 is not terribly far in my future, should I manage to survive that long :-/

With each passing day I am becoming less and less certain that any of us will be alive much longer (my theories on precisely what will lead to global annihilation vary from day to day, but nuclear war is always a fine guess), so Į\_(ツ)_/Į.

I'm guessing 2029-2034 honestly.  And the bombs will fly, they won't initially kill everyone though.  The diameter of the largest nuclear weapons is surprisingly small.

I'm kind of upset about Chris Cornell dying too.  Usually this kind of stuff doesn't affect me at all, and this one affected me like 1/2".

Btw, Gorky, if/when the mark comes remember I advised not getting it. smile 

If it does come, then you'll know I advised well, because it was accurately predicted before it happened. smile

It was some of the cheesiest television ever conceived, let alone produced.  But it had a certain charm.

He gave such a serious deadpan delivery to the most ridiculous dialogue, kind of similar to what Leslie Nielsen later did

Stephen Furst (Vir in Babylon 5) passes away at 63.

We also saw the loss of John Avildsen (Director of Karate Kid & Rocky), aged 81.

It may not be even remotely true, but I've always sensed some sort of connection between living a troubled existence and being a creative person.  But it doesn't make it any easier when someone we've admired or even loved takes their own life :-/  My condolences to his family and friends.

It is awful, apparently it was linked to Chris Cornells death. They were close friends and he killed himself on Cornells birthday :/

We'll probably never know why he did it, but that makes the most sense to me, and struggling with addiction.

or just a word that correlates to one person, that only that person will understand. So the police never figure it out but the one person who caused the suicide and knows the word is directed to them lives in constant fear. Both for being caught and lives in guilt for the rest of their life.

Sayonara, Hugh Hefner. 

The cultural icon has finally hopped his last bunny.  Friends and family are sad, but kittens everywhere rejoice.

This news was definitely unexpected, but at least he lived a long and healthy life, passing at 91 years of age.

I saw on CNN this morning that the Hef is going to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe, which I found unsettling for reasons I could not quite articulate. This article sums up my feelings nicely, actually, not only about where the man will be buried but about his legacy in general. Relevant quote:

Quote
Hefner will be laid to rest in a mausoleum next to Marilyn Monroe, whose talents and beauty helped launch Hefnerís career. The spaces around Monroeís body are in high demand; one sold for $4.6 million on eBay in 2009. In life, Monroe might never have given these men the time of day, but in death, she has no choiceówith enough money, any man can buy the right to sidle up next to her for all eternity. Itís kind of gross when you think about it: Whatís sexy about having your corpse decay in relative proximity to someone elseís 50-year-old remains? Of course, Hefner wouldnít care, because it affirms his conquistadorial image. Monroeís body, whether animated or deceased, was just another female form for the taking.

Maybe those last few lines lay it on a bit too thick, but for real why can't he just leave poor Marilyn alone for Christ's sake? Though this does make me wonder if those dang-blasted Kennedys had anything to do with Hefner's death... shifty

Would any individual or group of individuals have the rights to dig up her coffin and move her to a more private location?

This story reminds me of when Whitney Houston died. The paparazzi were literally chasing after the hearse that was carrying her body so they could snap exclusive photos of her corpse. So disturbing, and with such a lack of respect that it makes me question their humanity.

If I ever get famous, I'm going to have to upgrade my death plans from being tossed out the window to being cremated then flushed down the toilet. That way, nobody will be able to disturb my inanimate, meaningless remains.

I actually do quite like the idea of having my remains used to provide nutrients and energy to continue the cycle of life. Austrian artist and naturalist Friedensreich Hundertwasser was buried with no coffin only two feet deep under to a tulip tree so that his body could be used as food for the tree and its surrounding wildlife.
