Does being dismissive about the death of a celebrity make you more compassionate toward those that aren't?

I think you know the answer to that. Please stop trolling.

Jesus, this is sad news. I'm more sad about this than about the fact that my province just elected a Trump apologist as its premier yesterday.

He seemed like such a great guy and I can only think about all the people that must be devastated by his death.

RIP.

Good interview with Andrew McCutcheon I saw from Twitter, when McCutcheon played for the Pirates. He now plays for Giants, and is a much better person for it.

I'm a fan, despite him being my wife's celebrity crush.
I'm really sad about this, not sure what to say. The guy just seemed to get it.

I think that's part of what flummoxes people. He seemed to have worked past his demons and was very self aware.

I can’t say I was a fan per se. But I appreciated him. He projected a modern ideal of sorts for privileged guys of our vintage. In this time of Trump...that was something to admire.

it's pretty rare that i respond to arrant fucquery these days.

however, i do make exceptions.

what was great about anthony bourdain is that he took what was a personal passion and turned it into something much bigger. he turned it into being a cultural ambassador of bonding at a table with anyone and everyone, all across the globe. he was into making connections and showing that everyone is deserving of human respect. everyone has great things to share in a basic, down home way, stripped of all politics and dehumanizing crap. in his fashion, he was the exact opposite of trumpism.

you, jimbo, are not.

it's fine with me (not really) if you think crapping on compassion, decency, understanding of human pain are cool things. maybe you think they make you faux tough. or any other adjectives that you tell yerself aren't a function of stupid, self-serving, arrogant unawareness. i have many theories on the people who mock pain and death selectively. they would be wasted on you, but everyone here with a workable brain and heart knows what they are.

it is true to say that my soul will always bleed. it will until the day i die. but it is more important to say that my soul will also always be inspired. it is also true that i was blessed and will feel that way every day until the day i die. i choose to focus on what really matters.

the truth is, you could come out with yer abhorrent, fucquenozzled crap to bourdain, and he would smack down yer weak, trolling shit in a flash. you could do it to my daughter, and she would still try to put her arm around you.

in any permutation, they are the ones to admire, and you would still fail as a human being in this regard.

good luck with that.

I don't understand this take at all. He worked in the backs of kitchens until his 40 years, addicted to smack.

How is that privileged?

His talent in writing and relating to people made him famous.

I think I get it. I think it's the back story that accounts for the modern Ideal part. the ability to fly around the world wherever you'd like on somebody elses dime accounts for the Privilege part. you see him with people all over the place and he's interested in them - in what they eat, what they think, how they lived. I think Davey is correct in noting that Bourdain's privilege wasn't lost on him. He was clear eyed and compassionate even with those celebrity chefs he often disdained. he seemed like a really good egg and I think it's always a sad day when we lose one of those.

(The next morning.) Sorry I crapped on the thread because I really do like Bourdain. My excuse is the cloying tone some of you adopt in these situations triggers the smarm monster in me and he got out of his cage. I will try to keep a stronger leash on him and try to be more respectful in the future.

That's really sad. Rest in peace. I've always wanted to have a Uruguayan chivito since watching his show. Not warthog anus though.
