    Default RIP Amy Winehouse

    Who didn't see this one coming? Its a shame that the most talented artists are the ones who don't seem to be able to handle their demons. Interestingly enough, she died at 27. This is the same age that Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin & Kurt Cobain all died.

    This seemed inevitable. I was a fan. But can't say I'm surprised. Some people just fall into a dark hole and can't get out no matter how hard those around them try to pull them back out. Sad.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    If my terrible math skills are correct, Heath Ledger was 28.

    Very interesting, I wonder what the correllation (if any) is?

    Anyway, me and a few friends on facebook had one going this year and the three celebs I had for this year were Amy Winehouse (dead), Dr. Kevorkian (dead) and Lindsay Lohan. My wildcard pick was anyone from Jackass.

    I believe it was Bang on ES that hit the trifecta a couple of years ago when Michael Jackson and a bunch of other celebs died.

    Lol, not even close. There is no betting. (If he could read what I was writing he would know that)

    For those who aren't familiar with it, a death pool is not a betting game. It's basically making guesses about which celebs will die before the end of the year. It isn't saying you hope they die. It is completely tongue in cheek, and the only factors anyone ever takes into consideration is extreme old age, disease, or train wreck metal or drug issues.
