Martin Luther King
umaga is dead !!!?
So yeah, him.
What a lovely man.
I never know whether he's coming or going.
what the fuck, man? Don't scare me like that.
when i saw a picture of jade goody, thought 'oh god not her again' and then suddenly realised that she'd been dead for about 6 months.
it really surprised me, i realised that when she died, my brain was so used to filtering out news stories about her (don't forget how much she was in the news for the last 6 months of her life) that it was as if i'd not heard the news at all.
i never liked her, her death didn't upset me, but realising i'd completely forgotten she'd died when i clearly would've been aware of it happening was really weird.
I'd continued blocking it all out, but thinking about it now seems really weird. like, she was inescapeably ubiquitous, and yet she's dead. strange to think about it, now.
also, looking back, it's seriously creepy to remember how the tabloids manipulated public opinion of her. she was an idiot, then a celebrity, then a racist, then a hero.
of the cynical, feckless tabloid press and fickle public alike.
the same people, hawking and then eulogising without blinking, without so much as an iota of self-awareness. Frankenstein/Frankenstein's monster dichotomy, right?

Dave Benson Phillips
wrecked his career :(
The Notorious B.I.G.
cos he died the same day as the London bombs so his death didn't get much coverage
Media coverage was light; still don't know how she died.
i don't understand, she died of/had pneumonia....then her husband died of pneumonia a few months later. are those both drug related? the wiki doesn't really clear anything up.
it was toxic mould in the house they moved into that kind of slowly poisoned them. They both died in strikingly similar circumstances if you read up on it. I don't know if it was exacerbated by prescription drugs or whatever but I think I read that the mould was the A number 1 cause
."It was reported that the Los Angeles County Department of Health had considered toxic mold in their house as a possible cause of the deaths, but this was dismissed by Ed Winter, who stated that there were "no indicators" that mold was a factor. Murphy's mother Sharon described the reports of mold contributing to the deaths as "absurd" and went on to state that inspecting the home for mold was never requested by the Health Department."
ok. that's pretty fucked up then. their deaths were eerily similar
The way she keeps moving about, it's creepy
when I was a young man, I used to fancy her something rotten
