I was reading about Ireland's worst air plane crash. A Cessna carrying two people crashed into a cemetery. So far, search and rescue have recovered 310 bodies.
Anyone a little burnt on pop stars? Anyone like to watch a pop star burn out? How about Britney? I am in the research stage of determining the average length of a pop stars career as soon as they release a song with lyrics along the lines of "I'm tired of the fuss", "leave me alone", "I just want to be normal", you know the types of songs they like to sing when they're at the top of their fame and they're tired of paparazzi, screaming fans, et al. Britney just released one and I've started the stopwatch to see how much longer she lasts. Other pop stars who have released songs along these types of lyrics, most notably and probably the most notorious is Michael Jackson. Just looked at what has happened to him. Here is what the future holds:

I have the worst tattoo, by far. Bring me your Mom tattoos, ex-girlfriend's names, the knife through the heart tattoos. Show me your barbed wire looking thing running around your arm or your flower above your butt. I have you all beat. Hands down. What do I have? Well, I've had it for 14 years. I got it when I was 18 and at the time it seemed like what I got for a tattoo symbolized everything I wanted to stand for until I died. When I was 18, it was an innocent symbol to show imagination, playfulness, frustration at not getting what you want, the ability to know that playing is the best thing you can do for yourself. Now, that symbol has degraded into something that has shown up on Ford and Chevy trucks for years, something that bomb loaders drew on their bombs before they were dropped during the Iraq and War on Terror. I have..I have...a...Calvin tattoo. My head is hung in shame. The people that see it now think I must have been behind a 1972 Ford F-150 a year or so ago at a stoplight and thought that inspiration must have struck me when I saw Calvin peeing on Chevy emblem, or Calvin peeing on Osama, or Calvin peeing on France. It's sad, I'm ashamed of it now. Here it is (my tat is just of Calvin):
