Celeb deaths - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Celeb deaths
He was a great performer. I just hope we don't get inundated with people talking about what a great man he was, because great performer =/= great man, and death doesn't change the facts.

Incidentally, the rumors of Jeff Goldblum's death are greatly exaggerated. And by that I mean false. If HE died I'd be inconsolable, he's one of my celebrity crushes!

Farrah Fawcett is indeed dead too, though hers has been considerably overshadowed by MJ's.

In other news: computer died, bought new (kickass!) i7 one, couldn't find a single store stocking Cintiqs anyplace in QLD so had to order (patience, I has none!), visiting parental units this weekend (and small nephew unit), and I have to go now because it's workmate-Johnny's birthday and we are having CAKE.

Also, we've got a Michael Jackson playlist running all day as tribute. Whatever his personal issues were, however sad and mixed up the poor guy was, his work was, is, and always will be brilliant.

What kind of price did you manage to find? Wacom seems to have quite a dislike of the world outside the US, given the 12" goes for around US$900, or £900 (US$1440). Or is it just the UK they despise? =:)

Yay new 'puter time! All being well, I should be laying my paws on a shiny new 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo slab in a few weeks. Should be an easy enough transfer - just a matter of making a full copy of everything not OS-related, plus a couple other directories, from one machine to the other, with one of them in target disk mode. Though it's tempting to just start from scratch, and only bring over the apps and media, leaving the kipple behind.

Joe's installing my stuffs today. Exciting! I wound up with a new monitor too. I don't buy new computer gear often so when I do, it has to last!

Yeah, Wacom hates Australia too, I don't even want to tell you how much I paid. ;_;
