Hey there. I feel awful. I feel like I'm overshadowing this unfortunate turn of events with Mr. Reilly. Let's be sure to keep him at the forefront of discussion.

You're right of course.... perhaps we can catch up some other time... some other place...

Perhaps so... At the moment, however, I can't imagine that there's anything worse than CNR dying.

Nothing like a good suicide attempt to start off your week.

That article I linked doesn't even mention it, really, but apparently he opened up a vein or two, perhaps due to a nasty smack addiction.

I know several people at work who are friends with him and one of my girlfriend's friends used to work for his mom... so while it isn't any of my business and it's not like I know him, it was a little weird.

oh, really? do you have a job where you routinely run into fabulous celebrities? a veritiable field of dreams?

You wouldn't believe it.  If someone did a montage of it, they'd need to add Kate Hudson, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Harvey Weinstein (if he's isn't in it already) to it by now...    And if there was a section for famous people that I didn't see in our building but am working on things for, you'd have to put Ricky Jay, Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Jason Bateman, and Brad Garrett in there.  How's that for some name dropping?

By the way, it's spelled 'veritable.'   :-X

Man, this thread has fallen by the wayside this year.  What they hell?  Just 'cause Tommy's no longer around doesn't mean you jackholes can't inform me that Pavarotti's now croaked, among others...  I have to go into the Indiana Jones movie thread to find such things out.  ::)

And if there was a section for famous people that I didn't see in our building but am working on things for, you'd have to put Ricky Jay, Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Jason Bateman, and Brad Garrett in there.  How's that for some name dropping?

Hell, I had way more than that at my prior auditing gig: Beatles, Guns n Roses, Snoop Dogg, Cher, Weird Al, and pretty much every major (and minor) music artist in between (past and present).  :-*

Actually, in sticking with the topic of this thread, it was really sad to see that Brad Delp (of Boston) committed suiced a number of months ago.  I was firing off royalty money to that guy for 7 years, and met him a couple times as well.  Unfortunate to see Owen Wilson attempt to join him...  :-\

this is a far sadder death than most:

Alex, the genius parrot, dead at 31.
