I'm an Awful, Awful Person...

I didn't write anything about the demise of chanteuse and cautionary tale Amy Winehouse. I've always been a Winehouse agnostic, I think she was a talented singer who had the great good fortune of collaborating with a world-class backup band. If she hadn't shuffled off this mortal coil at such a young age, she would have descended inexorably into late-night punchline status. Since her death, her album sales have charted again, and her music is being played with regularity on the radio. Being an irreverent smartass, I've had a twisted little earworm crawling around inside the mazy confines of my brane all week:


They tried to make me grow a meat slab,
I said, "No, No, No."
Told me, "Make a clone, steak without a bone!"
"No, no, no!"



Yeah, I'm pretty much an awful, awful man.

Your kind of awful I can live with.


w/v is either horny or rusty, because the word is "drilling." No kidding. Drilling.

If I was to say I only know of Amy Winehouse because of what my esteemed bloggers write about her, would you hold it against me?

It's funny, I personally cope with grief and stress with gallows humor. I pretty much gave up the "despondent" thing when, at the age of nineteen, I'd received news of two old friends dying in one weekend (car crash, cancer). Now, it's stiff upper lip, rolled up sleeves, and black, black humor.

Well, yeah. Most of the time I'm laughing to keep from crying.

It's just sad that someone who had the talent burned out at 27 whilst no-talent jerks are still assailing us with their noise.
Black humour, every time for me.

Is it snarkalicious?

It's what keeps me coming back.

When are you going to start writing snark on the web?

I don't feel bad for AW, she lived her life in full view of the public and it didn't seem to bother her that we constantly saw her drunk, disheveled and bruised.

The vultures will now commence fighting over the millions she left..probably without the help of a will. That will be the fun part.

In case he hasn't seen it, a warning for our host:

Enjoy Park Greenery, City Says, but Not as Salad

Thanks for the warning, old chum! The only foraging I've ever done in NYC is my annual Bronx mulberry binge. I do most of my foraging in Westchester County, largely on private land (my jobsites).
