    Was watching Vanessa Bryant talk about the hall of fame and still couldn’t believe Kobe was gone.

    Outside of Kobe, which celebrity death hit you the hardest?

    I remember walking in the airport and saw this on the news and man it fucked me up. Also a great video

    Heath Ledger. Was good in 10 Things I hate About You. Wonderful in A Knights Tale. And completely disappeared into his role in Lords of Dogtown. All that combined with the buzz coming out of Dark Knight. He was really starting to hit his stride.

    Yeah everyone from Arkansas is related to Levon Helm and everybody in Georgia is second cousins of Dickey Betts and so on so on and they're all like "no srsly he stopped by quick thanksgiving '91"

    I'm from MN where I don't think I'm even cousins with my cousins and have no relation whatsoever to Bob Dylan.

    Sister was watching Little House on the Prairie when they cut in to announce that he'd been shot. It was a big deal because it put to rest any hope of a Beatles reunion (insert three more bullets joke here)
