Death Day...

Well what started off as a normal day has taken a turn for the worse here in the last hour....





First while browsing the internet I discovered that Basil Poledouris composer of many fantastic film scores such as Robocop, Starship Troopers, and Conan died today of cancer...

Which is funny considering I'd been listening to Jerry Goldsmith, and Elmer Bernstein two of my other childhood favirites earlier today, and thinking how the film music world was getting smaller. Now I guess it's even more so...

Well then about 25 min later I find out by complete accident that a guy who worked at Kamp Kiwanis (a summer camp I used to work at) died today while on his way TO the camp!

His girlfriend whom I had worked with at Kamp with for 3 years popped up on MSN, which is a rare occurance. Starting what I thought would be a normal conversation I drove right into no doubt her worst day ever with a fercious naivety. I'm hoping things can SOMEHOW get better for her...

I'm feeling guilty cause I hardly knew the guy. He seemed nice the 3 times I met him. I just cut Kiwanis completely out of my life when I left, and he started after that period...



Here's to the memory of Twig
