Amy Winehouse joins the 27 club.

Posted 23 July 2011 - 11:22 AM

Amy Winehouse found dead at age 27 : The 27 club

Now I may not be the biggest Amy Winehouse fan, being that I've never even heard her music... but it still fascinates me how musicians can live such a horrible life of self abuse & stardom, that it all ends so soon.

I often time measure events in my life, then look back at their accomplishments, & can't help but ponder 'am I wasting my time, or treasuring a comfortable living?'.

Does anything cross your mind when they find a dead celebrity? Do you even care? Does it crush your world? Please share your thoughts about the situation specific to her, or to celebrates in general.

You gotta be shitting me. That's terrible man, I though she would live until she was all old like Keith Richards. :( Man, too soon. Too soon. Well what did she expect doing drugs like that.

When Ryan Dun died that really made me think. I mean, I grew up through my teens watching him and his friends do silly shit and seeing a man that couldn't get seriously hurt, die, well that shook me up a bit.

You know they say that things happen in 3's. Interesting because the prime factors of 27 is 3 x 3 x 3.

Weird! ;)

Honestly, so many people die every day all over the news I can no longer give a crap. I'm so desensitized (or whatever the correct term is) that I don't even care about not caring anymore. Every day there's so much tragedy on the news that I find it impossible to maintain a permanent state of suitable despair.

If I still could give a damn, though, I'd give it to the starving children in africa first because they are not to blame for their misery. Celebrities pumping themselves full of drugs or dying DUI are really, really low on the list of recipients of Nightfish's compassion. Srsly, it's their own damn fault.

As for Amy... Can't say I'm surprised. She looked really, really wasted ever since people made me aware of her. Actually that was the main thing I knew her for. Doing drugs like a boss and looking 20 years older than she was. Not really a fan of that kind of music so I can't judge whether she was good at it or not.

Last celebrite death I was "oh, damnit" about was Heath Ledger. But again, not really because I pity the poor stinking rich celebrities, but because I really, really liked him as the joker. So a good part of that was selfish desire to have good performances in movies again.

People die, it is a part of life. When people die by drugs and substances or stupidity, I say it is just natural selection doing its work. It sucks to see well known people die as many have made impacts on our lives. Yet at the same time, life will go on and we will see the usual mourn for a few days and then people will try and sell memorabilia.

You mean people who have a life outside stalking celebrities? Novel idea there.

I heard it today driving home from the mountains and my first reaction was "well, that took longer than I thought". I too don't know her for anything more than what a living (now "not living") horror show she was vis-a-vis the rampant drug abuse. She was like a celebrity meth billboard.

Before and after (actually after and before in this case):

Yikes!
