Quote from: b_dubb on July 24, 2011, 11:42:35 AMseeing people suffer generally makes me sad. rich or poor. there's a whole mess of circumstance that goes into fucking someone up like that. and i won't pass judgement.
Quote from: EvB on July 24, 2011, 12:49:28 PMI agree b_dubb. I do feel she was an enormous talent. I loved her humor, her honesty, her poetry, and her gritty contralto voice. Was she controversial? Hell yes. But, IMO, most of the fussing about her was petty 'better than' bullshit. Worse, much of it was misogynistic. While many male celebrities live outrageous lives, and live them more publicly than Winehouse, the way we criticize them seems somehow less hateful and hostile. (There are exceptions, of course, there are always exceptions to generalizations.)Was Amy Winehouse a beacon of strength and virtue? NO! But how many of us are? How many of our lives could stand up to the scrutiny celebrites endure? And, Winehouse was not the media whore so many celebrites are. She did nothing to attract the attention she received other than to be eccentric, and, when her inner demons were not driving her to drugs, an engaging performer. I liked Edward Champion's blog post addressing those who loved to hate her.Many will disagree. it goes without saying that that is their right. What i find distasteful are not the arguments over her talent, or the degree to which she brought her end upon herself. What i find distasteful are the (thankfully few - and elsewhere - here people seem to well balanced) posts that actually celebrate her death, as if it is some cultural victory.

As one who has been around people in the music and film "biz", I've seen many get overwhelmed by personal demons, some have the strength to overcome. You have no fucking clue what's it's like to be a celebrity. She won 5 Grammy before 24 years old, **REMOVED**As someone does paint, write, produce, I can say **REMOVED**Quote "What a skank.

Quote from: b_dubb on September 17, 2011, 12:22:11 PMi feel like we should mention Coast To Coast Am here. if not dead, certainly dying. the more i listen to noory's shows the more i get the feeling that come 2013 ... C2C will cease to exist and be replaced by a more general themed show. at the moment they're driving Coast into the ground and it doesn't seem like anyone at the network/show cares to change anything
