nikki sudden, 49

Now I discover that Nikki Sudden is also dead. Where will it end? I fondly recall the last time I had contact with him. I wrote to him to express my condolences when Epic Soundtracks died. I suppose I have his reply somewhere, but I'll paraphrase, he wrote that it was a 'weird time' but concluded, 'Oh well, the Stones are playing next month!'

Which (as I have already said to Megan Edwards) is what we could say now too, pretty much.

It will end with all of us dead David. That's the nature of being alive; you die. That's why it's good to be alive as opposed to dying. Life works best when we assume the best . . . stop complaining about the weather etc - if there is nothing you can do, don't worry - that's indulgent.

'It's good to be alive as opposed to dying' - mere assumption! And plus what's a blog for, if not for complaining about the weather! I was on a tram yesterday and people were telling intimate yet mundane details of their lives on mobile phones ('I really didn't sleep well last night...') I felt like I was reading their thoughts balloons. I hope that someone from the future will look back at my blog and decide to 'adopt' me and use future past-weather changing technology to change the weather so it is more to my liking.
