    Gene Simmonds made an ass of himself again: http://www.nme.com/news/gene-simmons/79185

    The local radio station banned all KISS songs for the day after one of the DJs refused to play them this morning, the afternoon guy then continued to not play them even though they were scheduled. A Winnipeg area radio station did the same as well as radio stations in the UK and Australia: http://www.winnipegsun.com/2014/08/15/gene-simmons-banned-from-power-97-after-suicide-comments

    I was very upset yesterday and today, but had managed to hold on in an an emotional but still functional state when I thought about this tragedy. But as I was driving home from work today, they confirmed the cause of death for Robin Williams, and I absolutely lost it. A grown man, openly weeping about the death of someone who I had never met, but who at the same time was so ever present during my childhood and adolescence that I felt I had lost a dear and close friend. When I was home watching the nightly news, my face was in my hand, wiping away my tears as they played a retrospective of Robins Williams life and all the roles he had played. A celebrity death has never in my life ever made me as distraught as I felt tonight.

    How can someone who injected so much laughter, so much fun, so much pure unadulterated joy, not have had the opportunity to share in the wonder he spread with the world? There is truly no justice. I know mental disease is a physical problem with the brain, because otherwise how could someone who made so many people so truly happy not been able to share in that self same happiness? It boggles the mind. No one can know what was going through his mind in his final moments, but with my whole heart I hope and pray, he knew, on some level, how beloved he was, how much the world would miss him, and loved him, and how we are all poorer and emptier of spirit without him.

    Now I'm getting emotional. Talk amongst yourselves. Here, I'll give you a topic. The human reproductive system is so insane, it must have been designed by committee.

    RIP Robin Williams

    Depression doesn't necessarily mean that you're never happy, and I don't think that it did in Williams' case.

    At least from my outside perspective, it seemed like he wasn't just suffering from depression, but bipolar disorder. But even if I'm wrong about that, I still know that what you're saying, on an intelletual level, is true. My heart just hurts that his lows were this low.

    Yeah, I just saw this.

    I hope Gene Simmons is not afraid to get the help he needs.

    The help he needs to remove his head from his ass?

    You can't diagnose a mental illness like bipolar from the outside. It isn't our place to be assuming diagnoses here.

    We don't need to do that to feel sympathy for him and his family. It isn't necessary to grieve.

    Irrelevant washed-up has-been says something awful to get our attention again because he's got nothing else in his life, news at 11.

    Fuck that guy.

    This thread has to end on a better note than a fucking Gene Simmonds quote.
