I don’t think I need to say that it’s been anything but quiet around here. My little corner of here and the greater world of here have been loud and chaotic, demanding attention.

The movie is Singles and it’s the part of the movie where Campbell Scott‘s character has been holed up in his bachelor apartment due to a broken heart (and some rejection of his big project at work).

When I heard today that Chester Bennington had ended his life, I immediately thought of Chris Cornell. And it feels like Chris Cornell took his life last week.
But it was May.
Chris Cornell has been gone since May.
And then in June, Chester Bennington dedicated Linkin Park’s ‘One More Light’ to Chris Cornell during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. (more…)
