I was watching the news late last night and I was shocked to hear of the death of a famous celebrity.

Their career started in the mid 60's and through the next couple of decades their fame and fortune knew no bounds. It all started to go sour towards the 90's and nobody has heard or seen much of them in many a year, save for the odd picture in those celebrity dross magazines showing off their latest bout of failed plastic surgery.

Yesterday, they passed away. I'm sure you are all with me in prayer for this fallen idol.

RIP Farrah Fawcett.



Oh, and some dude called Michael Jackson died as well.

I think when someone reaches a certain level of fame we stop thinking of them as humans, and more as idols. Seeing any major celebrity die is always a shock - we forget that they, too, will die eventually.


That probably came across as horribly depressing. My bad.

RIP, Mr. Jackson & Mrs. Fawcett

Her dignity shone so bright like a light on a hill
and she burned for me, no other man came near her flame.
Bad country songs - the deafening twang of the rich white kid blues.
You can own the strange, but the lights and glares will not make you real.
