First and foremost

I know, I know...

Another blog to keep up with. The truth is, I need something new. I can kinda control who reads this. Well, I can control it, but I won't. I will more than likely post one last entry to the LJ and to myspace advertising myself. Sickening I know.

So on another note...
I was listening to a Tom Green Podcast with Norm McDonald. And in their conversation, they mentioned Bud Dwyer. I didn't know who Bud Dwyer was and was definitely curious as to who he was since they mentioned committing suicide on television. So I google Bud Dwyer and see a video link.

I thought suicide was a metaphor for doing badly on the air. What I saw was so disturbing. A man putting a gun in his mouth and pulling the trigger. I am fascinated by death. I really don't know why. Maybe because I have never seen a dead person except for in pictures and movies. Maybe it isn't death so much, but its lasting effects on people. However, seeing the Bud Dwyer video just made me uncomfortable and wanting answers of why would someone kill themselves in front of an audience.

Morbid thoughts I know. If I hadn't seen the video, I wouldn't even be thinking about it.

Hey Nessa!

I just talked about Budd Dwyer on the Pod Is My Copilot blog about a week ago - how weird that you would be writing about it so soon after....I remember when they showed it on the news...

Anyway, good to have you as a fellow blogger. I won't send people to your blog on the podcast unless you want me to....lemme know...

You've never seen a dead person. Odd. I was with my cousin, when he died. I used to deal with skeletons during my archaeology classes

Like the blog
