[quote=starburst;1048302] Belushi was one of the first people I thought of when I heard. John had so much potential. He was really going somewhere and people were taking note and then...nothing. It seems like so many people get thrust into the limelight and they burnout so quickly. John Belushi, Chris Farley, Mitch Hedberg, Kurt Cobain, I mean, the list goes on and on. You just want to grab them all and tell them that from their point of view it might be "better to burn out than fade away," but burning out leaves a lot of people behind who are hurt and confused.
After saying OMG!! the first person I thought about was River Phoenix. I just loved him and was so sad to learn of his passing. All I could say was "what a waste" not just of a talent, but of a great person. My heart goes out to Matilda and Michelle, for although they weren't together anymore, I'm sure she still loved him.
