Death's Messengers

Death's Messenger
Hey there.  When I was in high school, I would enjoy going to my AP Physics class.  Not so much because physics are thrilling, but because my teacher would start the class with a zen story.  These stories were meant to have the students think outside the box.  He deemed them, "thinking can't tales" and I looked forward to them.  They fascinated me.  They were indeed thought provoking and more often than not, I thought about the story well after class ended.  Well today, I came across a story that took me back to those days in class.  Let me tell you the story of Death's Messengers.

The Loss of a Baby Cousin

Hey there.  I've been kind of missing this past week.  I found out this Monday that my baby cousin (2nd gen cousin) passed away recently.  It devastated me.  Especially since my little baby cousin's dad (1st gen cousin) and I grew up together and I've always felt close to him.  It's tough to have to bury a child.  It is the most devastating thing that a parent would ever have to endure.  While at the viewing, I couldn't but to get choked up.  A small angel... lying there motionless is not what a baby should be.  A child is the epitome of life, the essence of joy, and the very definition of a growing family.  To have a young one be taken away from you before he had a chance to experience the outside world, shattered those thoughts for my cousin, his wife, and the whole family.

RIP Whitney Houston

Hey there.  Saturday afternoon, the world lost one of the greatest voices we have ever heard.  Now, I'm not going to say that I'm the biggest fan... because I'm not.  I know of Whitney Houston because of some of her misguided decisions involving drugs (crack is whack), her marriage to Bobby Brown, and The Bodyguard.  Let's be honest here, anyone that has ever heard of Whitney Houston knows her from one of those three things so when news broke out that she passed away, almost everyone was in some way shape or form, affected by it.

Ex Warrent Singer Jani Lane Found Dead in his Motel Room

Hey there. Another celebrity has been found dead this year. Earlier this month, singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment and now ex Warrant singer Jani Lane was found dead in his motel room in Los Angeles. He was 47.

Jani Lane was an on and off singer for Warrant since their start up back in the 80s. The band's most well recognized tune is Cherry Pie and it propelled them into fame. There still is no certain cause of death, but like most glam rock celebrities, Jani had his issues with alcohol and drugs so it would not surprise me if the LA coroners find some sort of killer cocktail of drugs and alcohol in his system.

It's a sad day, friends. A small piece of 80s rock has passed on. Later.

Amy Winehouse Found Dead in Her London Home

Hey there.  Another celebrity death has just been confirmed.  This time it's the award winning singer, Amy Winehouse.  Reports are flowing across the internet that she was found dead today in her London Home.  She was 27 years old.  Known primarily for her hit single Rehab, Any was also notorious for her drug use and mental health issues.  There were many pictures of Amy looking her worst while on drugs and other substances and many feared for her life.  I expect the news to announce that she died of an over dose.  It just seems up her alley and if that was the case, it's a sad sad ending to a woman with a great voice that needed some guidance.  Rest in peace, Amy.  Later.

Casey Anthony Found Not Guilty: America Weeps

What?  My daughter's dead. Noooooooooo... I didn't do it.
Hey there.  I'll admit that I haven't been as captivated by this case as much as I should have been.  As a matter of fact, I first heard about the case from my wife, when she decided to purchase a magazine with Casey on the cover.  I naturally asked her who's that and she explained the case to me.  I then asked if she was famous since she was on the magazine, she said no.  With that right there... I should have known that this was big.  Since then, I started asking my wife to fill me in on the court proceedings, since my wife has the luxury to watch it at home.  Night after night, the evidence compiled against Casey made it seem like she was going to be found guilty for murdering her daughter.  I was curious to see if they would give her the death penalty and even the "experts" on TV were saying that anything but the death sentence would be a victory for Casey.  The "experts" were saying she was as good as guilty.  Then... the American Justice system did what it does best.  It set this child murdering woman free.  That's right, the jury found Casey Anthony NOT GUILTY!

Jackass Star, Ryan Dunn, Dead at 34

Hey there.  News broke out this morning that Jackass star, Ryan Dunn, was killed in an early morning car accident.  Many didn't believe it.  Especially in this digital world where anything said via Twitter or Facebook can spread like the plague.  False stories of celbrity deaths seem to be the norm nowadays.  Unfortunately, that was not the case with Ryan Dunn.  It's been confirmed and there are pictures floating around the web.
