Whitney Houston: Rest In Peace

I'm not sure how to say this.

I was watching Iron Man 2, tossing back far too many martinis, and checked to find that Whitney Houston had died.

We have a eulogy tag because we like to make little posts when people die. In the past they seem to have been merely the obligatory recognitions of the passing of yet another celebrity life. I mean, it was sad when George Carlin died, when Kurt Vonnegut died, because of the lasting impact they had on our developmental selves and their eternal influence upon our lives.

But the thought I have, that continues to reverberate in my reptilian brain, is that we've lost the woman who sang this:

That seems significant.

I'm not sure how you feel about music, how you consider its influence upon your life. But, take a moment to listen to that song...and at least try to appreciate the talent we've lost this day.


And then after you've had that emotional appreciation of the loss, listen to this wonderful young asian of excellent repute:

We're all androgynous asians.

Heartfelt emotional pontification AND racism?

Most people would charge for that shit.
