I got another.
Update the List.
Look, how many times do I have to say this, I thought I saw a notification of his death. Swear to god.
Just tell them that they can have a place on your list.
And, oh, hey, you're right.
She was 32.
Did you see the bit about a husband not wanting an autopsy?
It's kinda sad.
She was alright in some of her films.
The dude from that TV show?
See, that's just personal bits. I mean, as sad as its going to be to here myself say this, the year was really defined by Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze and David Carradine.
Yeah, but come on--the Jackson had a funeral on TV where little boys stood over his coffin and cried.
People forgot all about the child sex stuff and the many, many locks on his bedroom door.
I kinda felt something for Swayze. He was so public and seemed so nice and--
You're such a cynic.
But if I had to pick out of some so far, it would be hard to pass up the Canadian singer who was torn apart by coyotes.
That was her name.
I still got my doubts about that--like, I thought coyotes were shy and weren't up for attacking hikers on public trails.
It's the age?
Like being killed by coyotes.
But there was also Karl Malden.
He wasn't very tragic, though. Just age got to him.
It's not really what I look for. People like Malden don't have spectacle in them.
I mean, I thought JG Ballard dying was terribly sad, because I loved his books, ever since the Drowned World--
--But there wasn't much of an event to it.
David Carradine, however.
Tell me it wasn't awesome?
Lorraine even made those cookies after he died. Guaranteed to Choke You, she called them.
Dying while masturbating is one thing, but to die while wearing a wig and a dress and to then have your family and friends come out and say that Kung Fu cults have organised it with transexual hookers... there really is no way to top that.
That's the year right there.
Oh, shit, the boss is looking at me. I gotta get going, okay?
Take care, dear. I'll see you Wednesday night for the List meeting.
(The 12 Days of Christmas has been going for a while now. Hows my driving? Don't tell me. I think I ran over your dog.)
