TGIF 4.22.16


We just ended a second week of low news about Michael Fassbender. It may be dry like this for a few more weeks before X-Men: Apocalypse is released on May 27th. I'll be there to watch it on opening day. I don't have much more to write as I'm still in the afterglow of the shock about Prince's death the other day. I've been aware of Prince since 1981-ish and have enjoyed his work throughout the years. He was one of those people you knew would live almost forever. If I have to pause for a moment for him, it's worth it, and it demonstrates the power and influence that some musicians and actors have in our lives, whether we want to admit it or not. RIP Prince.

I remember studying for a test at 5am in the morning when my mother opened the door of my bedroom and told me that John Lennon had been killed. My life changed in that moment. I insisted on going to school. I shouldn't have. Everyone at school knew I was JL's biggest fan. As I walked down the hall, everyone stopped to tell me how sorry they were. I broke down. They sent me home. Our heroes are such a large part of who we are.

Thanks for sharing your story Webigail. I've known several people who were greatly distressed by the untimely passing of their heroes. Recently, a local radio announcer cried on air when discussing Bowie's death.

These people mean so much more to us than just entertainers, they help inspire and motivate us through life.
