I had no idea Janet Reno died.
Me neither. That one was a surprise.
I still remember being young as shit and loving this song, but not knowing the lyrics to it. Tried to sing it to my brother and cousin one day, but they were looking at me like I was stupid cuz I was just humming out most of it. Damn good song.I didn't know Prince Be died. Set Adrift and I'd Die Without You really take me back.
Yeah glass is half full side of me sees average age of death on that list is 77.6 years old. Not bad all things considered.

David Bowie was devastating after releasing amazing record and being my all-time favorite recording artist on top of that. There is countless music I would have never been exposed to if not for him.
Then Prince happened.
I know it's hard to crack at those that say "fuck 2016", but a lot of personal bad shit happened too: I got jumped and hospitalized, I was pretty much forced to leave a job that I worked for 8 years due to workplace bullying and bad HR, lost one of my cousins and, just today, while abroad, found out a near and dear friend of mine died on Christmas night.
It's hard to not look at these deaths as signifiers as something bad for me personally.
My condolences. I dunno what it is about this year but it does deserve to be in a dumpster fire for your year alone. Hope things turn around in 2017.
Looking at the ages, at least many of them got to live quite long lives.
Going forward, every year will seem bad for celebrity deaths as the number of people considered famous grows each year. In 50 years it'll make news when a famous Instagram model dies and people will say fuck 2066.
