I Can't Believe How Sad I Am



I don't know why, but I always thought she'd turn things around. In any case, the world was more interesting with her in it.

Out of respect for her, couldn't you have found a more flattering picture?

Tania Rochelle said...

I thought this one captured her spirit.

And it made me feel better about my own bra fat.

biggy said...

I think it's disrespectful.

Oh, this from a man who just finished telling Garey how he's going to have Daisy stuffed when her time comes.

I will most likely be despondent for the next week mourning this most profound loss. I think it's her sparkling intellect and depth of character that I'm going to miss the most.

Tania Rochelle said...

There's just something...I dunno. Not to discount personal responsibility, but I think our culture is deadly. We can take someone with no talent and turn them into icons just because they're beautiful (Paris Hilton) or odd. And then, if they don't have great strength (of character, of identity, of purpose), they ride the fame train full-speed until it crashes. And we can't take our eyes off it.

She was in immense pain. That saddens me.

Tania Rochelle said...

And that's the part I left out. It's like we forget that they're human--and, yes, in pain.

Her life was so sad. Tragic.

What's even sadder is all of this Marilyn Monroe comparison business in the news...

Jennifer said...

I liked Anna Nicole, and T, is right: the world was more fun with her in it. Poor Howard K. Stern.

I remember when Marilyn Monroe died. It felt like some kind of essential joy and freedom and love had left the planet. It was only later that we found out about her scars. Maybe that's the difference between her and Anne Nicole Smith. Her scars were so close you felt you could touch them.

biggy said...

J, that was a sarcastic "Poor Howard k. Stern", correct?

Alena said...

I feel even worse for the baby.

mamoo said...

i feel bad that she died. i'm not sure why. i guess for the same reasons the reasons the rest of you do.

I thought she'd eventually get away from Howard K. Stern and that mother. I was shocked.

Who said Paris Hilton is beautiful? She looks like Olive Oil and her face looked crunched up. Her sister is better looking and has the sense to not be a hoochie.

Paris is tall, thin, blonde, and vapid--exactly what most men in our culture find attractive.
