176/365 - Rest In Peace
1958 - 2009
It still feels unreal. I grew up with him. He was a larger part of my life than I realized. And of course I knew this would happen some day. I just didn't expect it to be so soon. And so sudden.
It goes without saying that some won't understand. Many won't care. Others will even make jokes. I don't need to defend him. Whatever your opinion, he entertained and inspired millions. He was a force of nature in our culture. He won't soon be forgotten.
