    Actually, it's life. Or in this case, death. My brother getting hit by a motorcycle and dying one late Saturday night when he was 20 year old, that was stupid. Gandolfini had a good, full life.

    It'll happen to everyone, so like I said..... it's life.


    It's the stupidest part of life. And I'm happy for you that you've gotten to a place where you're able to just accept death as a part of life, I really hope I can get there one day. But for now I hate it. I hate death and everything about it. And I think it's stupid.

    From everything I've heard about James he was a great, kind, lovable person. And he played one of the greatest, most iconic rolls in television history. I'm genuinely sad he's dead. And I don't give 2 shits how anybody else feels about that. RIP.

  • R.I.P. but his passing to me is just like every other person in the world that died recently.

    His acting had zero impact in my life as I saw maybe 2 Soprano episodes.

    Guys like Ray Manzarek of the Doors who died recently and barely got a sniff from those on this board had a major affect on my life with the amazing music he made that will never die.

    No, I didn't. And for one who craps on every thread he sees, that's damned ironic of you to criticize. Fact is, I'm sad he died, and it always worries me when one of my generation passes away, especially when he's younger than me. Tho not a huge fan of 'The Sopranos', I've always liked and admired his work.

    So, ef you too. Your post was very prick-like.

    Well, I just dealt with my dad dying 5 months ago. I hated everything about it. But the fact is, it's gonna happen to us all.

    Ray Manzarek was an awesome drummer and deserves respect. However, he was the drummer for a band with an iconic front man and not a lot of people are going to recognize that.

    James Gandolfini was the star of one of the best TV shows ever.

    Yes, you did. If you went to a random funeral and the son of the person in the casket at said funeral said "This is so stupid", hating the fact that his mother or father just died, and you replied with what you did here - "Actually, no, that's life." You'd get punched in the face. It may not have been your intent, but intent is irrelevant and the fact of the matter is that your response was disrespectfully cheeky in an "X has passed away" thread. I've also not once ever trolled or crapped on any thread about anyone who has passed away. Even people I don't like, I have more respect than that for; so, I guess you know where that "ef you too" can go.

    Incorrect Mr. Factoid. John Densmore was the drummer of the Doors. Ray Manzarek created all the iconic keyboards of the Doors AND played bass at the same time, also on the keys.

    Maybe think next time before posting?

    I completely disagree, but I'm done with being drawn into your stupid arguments that you always do. Later.

    LOL. Yeah, I like the Doors and obviously showed my knowledge about their freakin' keyboardist. Again, he wasn't Jim Morrison. James Gandolfini was a Jim Morrison.

    Yeah, I remember you going through that. It's tough. I don't remember if I offered you my condolences then or not but you were in my thoughts and prayers. I worry about my dad dying every single day so it hurts when I see somebody else go through it.

  • It is indeed stupid and it's a fact of life and those who are grieving could get a bit torqued hearing someone suggesting it's a fact of life, mostly cuz they could also overreact if one said the sun was up on a sunny day. I find it's easier to take if you take Jazz' viewpoint, but many do not... to each their own. I lost my mother, my home and my father-in-law in a 6 month period and taking it as it was helped. What is clearly important is the need to move on, but not necessarily right after the shovels are put away.

    As to Gandolfini, he was much more than just Big Tony.

  • Slim Whitman died the same day more importantly (but of course there was little to no news given).
