Death musings

You know how art goes up in value when the artist dies? I remember when Scott and Todd drowned — afterwards they became a hot commodity. People battled over who was the better friend, and former “best” friends dated the widows, paying the rent by selling their record collections. Access was tightly restricted on password-protected memorial websites… it really did disturbing things to people.

Every time I've seen a younger person die it seems to play out like this with strange little interpersonal dramas, gladiatorial battle for “I was most important to them” recognition, and so on. I guess it's probably normal… but it's sad because every time it seems to ruin a couple friendships along with it, which you know the deceased wouldn't have wanted.

Anyway… I have to get this image backlog caught up on!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
