    George Michael Died

    George Michael, the front man for Wham, died today. RIP.

    He actually is reported to have died two days ago (hence all of the "Last Christmas" jokes), but nonetheless, sad news. Wham! was slightly before my time, but I was around for and really enjoyed his solo stuff (and older Wham! stuff). 2016 really has been a plague to the entertainment world. RIP

    George Michael is a sad loss for sure. Apparently he wasn't just a great musician, he was also a great person:

    Also on Christmas, a plane crash took out all but three of the singers in the Alexandrov Ensemble, the world-renowned Russian army chorus:

    By all accounts George Michael was extraordinarily generous with his time and money over the last few decades. Sounds like Heroin finally got him.
    You still have bodies that can walk for five days and four nights through a desert of snow, without food, but accept praise for getting 10,000 steps. ‘Good for you’. Instead of expressing their gratitude for the rain by getting wet, people walk around with umbrellas. Nature is an old lady with few friends these days, and those who wish to make use of her charms, she rewards passionately.”
