GONE TO SOON…

14Sep09

First off, I apologize I haven’t been blogging recently. In my absence of blogging there has been a lot of things going on in the Media. From the problems of our Economy to who’s twittering about who. The biggest news that I have been very saddened by lately is how many celebrities have been passing away. The generation that I grew up in is soon realizing that life is too short. Many of our childhood Icons have been stripped away from us at such young ages. From Cancer to substance abuse, all of the recently deceased have shown us how precious our lives are. We have all been impacted greatly by these deaths. I myself had watched these stars on television or listened to them through the power of music.

R.I.P Farrah Fawcett (February 2, 1947 – June 25, 2009)

I had great memories of watching her in the Original “Charlie’s Angel’s”, watching her play one of the best single Mother’s in “Man of the House”, and of course every boy checked out her cough*modeling* cough pictures. You will be missed.

DJ AM aka Adam Goldstein (March 30, 1973 – August 28, 2009)

One of the greatest DJ’s of our time. He had DJ’d at some of the most famous places for big events. He was also a huge contributor to the sneaker game. I remember when he was an avid poster on Niketalk. I would see his collections and collaborations and just :drool: for days onto my keyboard. I always had wanted to hear him spin live and had gotten the chance to in front of UDFTD in LA for their block party sale. It was really cool to meet such a down to earth guy who had a passion for kicks like the rest of us “sneakerheads”. It was very sad to see such a young and talented person to become consumed by drugs after he was sober for 11 years and had survived a plane crash. You will be missed.

R.I.P Patrick Swayze (August 18, 1952 – September 14, 2009)

Probably my fondest memories of Mr. Swayze had to have been in one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, “Ghost”. The man was brilliant, the pottery scene to “Ditto”. I also remember him in Disney’s Tall Tale, I wonderful film about all the legendary Folk Tales. He was Pecos Bill in the film and runs into great adventures. I had watched it first in a class in school then it became one of my favorite childhood movies. “The love inside, you take it with you. See ya”. You will be missed.

and the greatest ever…

R.I.P Michael Joseph Jackson “The King of Pop” (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

Michael’s death had impacted me the most. I had just arrived in Las Vegas and my girlfriend woke me up from my sleep. I was in shock, I didn’t believe it at first and thought she was kidding. I didn’t want to believe it…

As a kid, I grew up listening to his music. My mother was one of his “Biggest Fans”, so I was born into listening to Michael. Michael’s death had brought so many fond memories of my childhood, from going to Disneyland to watch “Captain EO” in 3D, to learning all his dance moves from watching “Moonwalker” over and over again (Bunny Dance off Scene was one of my favorites). His career was an amazing feat, he has been a superstar since he was a boy. I never left the spotlight. His Music had affected people from all around the world, singing about people’s daily struggles and positive energy had given him the name as the “King of Pop”. His unmistakable kindness and care for every human being and creature to walk this earth made him God-like. He will be missed by many in this world, and his messages through his music will live on in the power of his albums. Rest In Peace Michael. You will be missed greatly…
