    2017 is Shit Too

    Bill Paxton, dead at 61 from complications of surgery. Game over, man. For some reason this has hit me a little bit harder than all the celebrity deaths from last year. He just seemed so young, affable, and omnipresent. It's hard to believe he's gone.

    He played naturalistic roles well (he's real good in the History Channel Hatfields & McCoys miniseries), but I'll always remember him for his cheese. Not just any cheese. Finely aged cheese.

    Chris Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden, died today at the age of 52. Holy shit. Soundgarden was seminal to my coming of age. 52. God damn it.

    Cornell dying is going to absolutely crush my wife when she sees the news. He's on her List.

    In other news:

    Roger Ailes, a towering figure in TV news and politics whose long run was tarnished by the sexual harassment scandal that forced him out last year as head of Fox News, has died. He was 77.

    Fox News confirmed Ailes died Thursday morning, three days after his 77th birthday. He was known to have battled health problems in recent years.

    So now Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) has passed away too. :(

    I never was their biggest fan, but for some reason it hits me right in the feels. LP were the soundtrack to a part of my youth, and some of their albums are legitimately good.
