Farewell, Patrick Swayze

15 Sep

"Son, it breaks my heart to say this, but I believe you are a very troubled and confused young man. I believe you are searching for the answers in all the wrong places."

Wow. In what has been a banner year for celebrity deaths, here comes another big one.  Rest in peace, Patrick. Donnie and I never agreed on this, but I never thought you were the fucking antichrist. Far from it, in fact.

So today, I’ll pour one out for you, and remember to: live my life in search of the extreme, to embrace love over fear, to never start anything inside the bar unless it’s absolutely necessary, and to be wild. WILD!!!

(Also, if you’re keeping track, that’s Thriller, Sixteen Candles, and Dirty Dancing, all gone in the space of a few months. 2009 has been a brutal year for the eighties, God.)
