But can the anger not be expressed at the disease or the circumstances rather than the person.



Read all the reactions to Kilmer. One is from someone who attempted suicide. He makes it clear that in that moment, in the grip of that illness, he believed it was the best thing for him and for his loved ones. A person who has gone so low that they take their own life even though they are physically healthy and have a successful life likely isn't seeing things the way you are from your position. They don't think they need help, they think this is the solution. If they survive, they may understand differently, but that's not how they are thinking in the moment.
In grief it comes out how it comes out. You have to vent, to say how you really feel. I’m not going to judge Kilmer for feeling how he feels and expressing it how he did because I completely understand it. I also think what he wrote was sadly, beautifully, poetically, expressive of how he feels. And I understand lows so low that there doesn’t seem to be anything to live for, too. I think, in my case, the devastation it would cause to a few people I’d leave behind is enough, and knowing there’s help, one day at a time, is enough, that I would not do it. I also don’t believe my life is my own to take. It’s on loan, and not up to me to decide how long for. I do understand that people commit suicide to escape deep, deep, pain and they are not thinking clearly due to mental illness. But, when they do it, they take the life of a loved one...who happens to be them, in an altered state.

Well, coronation street just had a main character commit suicide. The emotions expressed here were all played out in the show.

I am interested to see how the show continues

Compassion is key. I didn't watch him much but when I did I certainly enjoyed doing so. May he rest in peace. I pray that the God of Comfort will be with his family, friends and fans.
Tis hard to escape that ultimate sleep ...

Well I think grief is personal and when expressed, it may seem inappropriate to those on the periphery. I think we tend to think we have more invested than we do just by knowing about a celebrity rather than really knowing them but I still think we experience some form of grief.
Real populations cannot stand independent and individual whining ... have you not read into the entirety of this site's discourse? Tis enough to deviate the demons ... into various divinities ... t'would be the devil in satyr for this to be all together ... a point of gravitas?

And grief appears in 5 stages --- Charles Brown (when he thinks of it Lucy extracts the ball ... as de boo*tante ... and he falls for it ...)

I actually never heard of Anthony Bourdain until Mendalla posted this thread. I'm liking him a lot now ...

As he once observed: “For a moment, or a second, the pinched expressions of the cynical, world weary, throat-cutting, miserable bastards we’ve all had to become disappears, when we’re confronted with something as simple as a plate of food.”

"Frequently, I’ve come to regret things I’ve said. This, from 2001, is not one of those times" ...



5:20 PM - 4 Feb 2018

I don’t really care about what people say about me when I’m gone.” - Anthony Bourdain

@monk - you will have to find some of his old shows - especially Parts Unknown & give them a watch - he's a pretty interesting character. I think you would find these interesting from many angles.

My son was telling me that CNN is running a special on Bourdain tonight, after the regular Parts Unknown broadcast. So here in Ontario the special is at 10pm.

Have to see if they are going to stream it I guess (don't have CNN anymore).

This video, visible in Canada, is about the suicide of a main character of Coronation Street.

CBC TV

The episode before is good as well, in terms of him doign things, giving things away.
The next ones continue in how the ripples affect lives.

Tis all about ripples ... those in present only ... wouldn't go that far into the scheme ... logic tree?

Tis all in the signs and icons ... not for those hating signs of things to come and consequence! Just doesn't connect ... revealing a lack of networking and essential voids ...

Gives those "without" a break ... periodic separation syndrome ... a mental item!

Read recently where a man thought slo-eth should be removed from the list of sins ... so the quick and the dead would not be so quick-eth!

Fits that old Celtic belief about being dead before you know it ... a halve hour or more?

Pure demo-H in eth ... demon? De mouth or silence for outside information as critical ...

From Nous as it fals' upon us ... staffed appropriately for a stab, or alternate poke ...

Bourdain was said by CTV this AM as counter to Trump! Did the POTUS recent behavioural patterns drive Bourdain right out of the norm?

Is this typical for creative people as compared to those stoically fixed and inflexible? A piece of wandering Charon ...

Is there a myth as envi Ron ...
Hole-like space ...
Vacancy missed!
I've met souls like that ...
Something departed ...
If you have it ...
Be prepared ...
Someone else will get it ...
Pas savant; when only a remnant is retained?

If in human shortage, we use only a small portion of mind, what is the balance used for? Dynamic insanity!

Just look about! When you hear it ... tis Time To Go --- Jim Reeves! A reefer ... tug on the core!

Could be Aristotle ... just creatively and artistically floating a conception ... allowing us the icon of pool of soul! So many go a drift ... beyond typical? Thus sunk ... adepts according to myth?

Who exactly controls density? Is thickness also compressed allowing for a few thin spots ... holes in reality? Will Durant sometimes referred to this as periodic happiness ... when people were without worry ... a vast concept to conjure ... just here and now given the circumstance onus! Tis the pits ... when understood?

Possibly an Eire in f***edup domain of knowledge and thought ... thus it goes ... so beit!

Even Van Gough painter Barcarolle ... as a dark support system with holes ... all as whirl!

Core ole is swirl in the pipe ... a great tube ... some say hosiers! Royal socket causing Levites ...

Wee continuance in the next frame ... resembles a box, or cube IT! Square Peg ...

Sometime the unguent or satisfactory Reuben will soften the edges ... to well rounded form ... ineffable?

In a world of hostility and conflict ... there isn't much support ... thus it hangs like Pede in the temple ... untaught tensor?

Learning of alien affiliation is a pain ... until you see we're all screwed ... varients in time allow ups and downs ... something to get over and leave behind ... as niche O' Vlad who wasn't ... was Ur ... maybe Big Sur if fits happy ... cranked into oblivion?

Is oblivion dark ...
