George Michael 1963 - 2016

Post by Mawerick » 4 years ago

This was a bit of a surprise. I wasn't a fan, but still. He was quite young.

It`s almost like God is squeezing a few more out of 2016 before it ends. Literally in shock with the sheer number of famous people who have died this year.

Just people getting old and dying. All the stars of the 70s and 80s are beginning to reach that age now. It's not going to get much better for the foreseeable future I think.

That said George Michael was surprisingly young.

Just how in hell did you fail, and how did your mind convince your heart of that supposed failure. You succeeded like few (and probably sucked seed like few). How, possibly, did you fucking fail, then. Because you didn't fail, except where it mattered the most, namely to yourself. You came out of the closet more successfully than any other celeb (BTW, you didn't fool anyone, you know).

You just got tired of life, is all. You could have given your liver to Bowie, and then "Wham Bam Thank You Man".

You really blew it, big time, and pun fully intended.
