reminds me of a fave alternative singer from the 90's layne staley, no teeth all gums, rotting away in his own faeces by the end... very similar distinctive singing style too despite the diff genres...
yes, his last year and how they found him, a very sad story indeed. I saw Alice in Chains twice in the 90s.

Shocked and so sad for her friends and family.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

I woke up this Saturday morning to log into my yahoo email as i do daily and saw a picture of her in a body bag on a stretcher being wheeled into a ambulance...


i feel a lot of momentary grief since that moment today, but i hope it's only because there is that much (however big or small) a void of pain in the world.

...maybe that is co-dependent thinking but this is all i can hear; a pure voice with a question:




...yes.

Moby saved the day. From my good friend blog:

'A cynical person would probably say that Amy Winehouse was simply a disaster waiting to happen to our enthusiastic crowd, the whole set-up was calling for an unusual, badly-done performance through which she coupld pass out, get booed or break a bone. At the same time, it appears that nobody was paying attention to the multitalent that is Moby, scheduled to perform the same night, as well as three bands that are ex-Yugoslavia's own - Zemlja gruva (The Land of Groove), Elemental and Bei the Fish. All the eyes were on, as one of Zemlja gruva's singers said, "the queen".'

Really, this was a woman who made it big, had it all and blew it off in a binge of self-desctructiveness. When contrasted with dozens of innocent kids gunned down, it just doesn't come across as that tragic.

Re: Amy Winehouse dead.

Good marketing decision. She will be even more popular in death than she was in life.

Considering she had many opportunities to sort herself out, it's more her family I'm sorry for.

Actually, in the post you were so quick to criticise, Timariot made it clear he/she was speaking solely for Timariot. Maybe you misread it.

Right, I see, so what you are saying is that s/he isn't like the others all accross the internet who come into a thread about her death pointing out Oslo is a far worse tragedy (not denying it is btw).

I forgot MTF is full of special snowflakes.

Tragic.

Everything that needs to be said here have already been said (along with a few other things that are better left unsaid, but hey, this is MTF).

I regret never to have heard her sing live, even if it may well have been an embarrassing experience.
well said. I didn't know her and was not a fan, but I feel pity more than omg well she deserved it, or something like that.

then again I get annoyed when people talk that same way about suicide.
