Hana Kimura apparently commits suicide

She was so cute and bubbly, I feel so bad.

UPDATE

Now having watched the episode of Terrace House that caused her to to receive so much online hate, I see that she’s not so cute and bubbly as I had previously thought, or rather that behind the cuteness and bubbliness was immaturity and self-centeredness.

But still, very sad that she’s dead and couldn’t find a better way to deal with her past mistakes.

The latest word is that Terrace House is suspended and there won’t be any more episodes released.

Kobe Bryant

I don’t follow basketball, so I barely know who this guy is.

I’d like to say that it serves rich people right for using helicopters to get places faster, but I can’t find any evidence that helicopter travel is more dangerous than travel by car (although both car travel and helicopter travel are a lot more dangerous than travel by commercial airline).

Also, he was a rapist.

Authorities said the woman was examined at a hospital the day after the encounter and had injuries “not consistent with consensual sex.”

She also had a small bruise on her jawline and her blood was found on the T-shirt Bryant wore on the night of the incident, cops said.

So it’s not like a Christine Blasey Ford rape that no one rembembers but her.

With more news about the foggy weather, I strongly suspect a conversation like this happened:

PILOT: Mr. Bryant, the weather is bad for flying, it would be a good idea to cancel this trip.
KOBE BRYANT: Do your jobs damnit and fly me where I want to go, or i’ll fire you and hire new pilots.

Jack Sheldon is dead

Who? The guy who sang “I’m Just a Bill” and “Conjunction, Junction.” According to the NY Times, he also had a career as a jazz musician and a TV actor, but I never heard of him.

Ric Ocasek, R.I.P.

Not a good weekend for 80s musicians. First Eddie Money, and now Ric Ocasek.

Eddie Money R.I.P.

Concert footage from 1987, somewhere in the San Francisco/San Jose metropolitan area.

Some bands, like Genesis and Hall & Oates, were much better in concert than in studio. Eddie Money was not. Although I still enjoyed this video. Also enjoyed the brief glimpses of girls in the audience with big eighties hair.

Eddie Money (birthname Mahoney) was born to prole Irish parents in Brooklyn, and was a trainee in the NYPD before he moved to Los Angeles and became a musician.

Also, you can watch Shakin’, a music video about a tryst with a fast girl in a beautiful car beautiful girl in a fast car.

In the music video The Big Crash, Eddie Money plays a New York City police detective, and there’s a slutty guidette with awesome eighties hair, but the lyrics don’t seem to match the video at all. The lyrics say “she’s running with the white trash,” but in the music video she’s with a Puerto-Rican looking guy.

Robert Frank (the photographer) died

His contribution to photography was to depict the United States as a nation of dumb proles.

Koch brothers no more

The younger brother, David, died. The older brother, Charles, is still alive.

As I’ve written before, the Koch brothers were nose-holders. Meaning they held their noses dealing with the stinky conservatives because conservatives give them lower taxes. Now there will be only be one brother holding his nose when Republicans talk about prole stuff like Jesus and immigration restriction.

(I’m not sure how the Koch brothers felt about guns. Liberals complained that the gun lobby received money from the Koch brothers, but it was always indirect money. I think they may have felt an obligation to support gun rights because technically libertarians are supposed to support the Second Amendment, plus the NRA is a powerful organization for getting proles to vote Republican, but I’m sure they were disgusted by those proles collecting AR-15s. If anyone has any specific information, please share in the comments.)

Bill Buckner 1949-2019

The most exciting moment in the history of sports was Game Six of the 1986 World Series.

I guess that sucks for Buckner whose job, in the 9th inning of the game, was to ensure the game did NOT become the most exciting moment in the history of sports for fans of the other team.

George H.W. Bush

I have fond memories, although in retrospect, at that time immigration was getting out of control and liberals were in the process of taking over the universities and media (even more so than they already did), spreading the fake science of global warming and normalizing homosexuality while destroying traditional family values.

Pat Buchanan criticized President Bush for raising taxes after he said “read my lips, no new taxes.” But after taxes were raised, the economy really took off, and we had the massive dotcom boom of the 1990s. There’s proof that higher taxes aren’t as bad as libertarian types say they are.

My advice for President Trump: speak no ill of George H.W. Bush.

Burt Reynolds

What I remember about Burt Reynolds is that he had a hairy chest. Male actors are no longer allowed to rock a hairy chest.
