Another complained about headaches to her doctor for months before dying in her sleep. Turns out she had a massive brain tumor. Both were in their 30s.


Agreed. But the cause of premature celebrity death is drugs more often than not. There's no reason to sugar-coat it with anecdotes about your friends or people you know who had blowouts, they're not known dope fiends and they can't afford to go out partying every night with the jet set crowd who do blow and smack like it's free.

MassAsster: Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof
two sons, Astala and Phaedra.

Whats with famous people and strange names...


The Upper Classes have all the good names. They can name their eldest son John for seven hundred years without a qualm.

The Gentry ape the Upper Classes but have a longer and thus weirder list of names, mostly coined from the maiden names of their mothers or buried in antiquity, seeing as this class of people consists of sturdy durable families that may have lived on the same plot of land for hundreds or thousands of years with very little but the occasional civil war to trouble them..

The Upper Middle Classes are prone to fashion in all things, and while they may adopt the names of the Upper Classes and Gentry out of snobbery, they will also invent. God save us from middle class cleverness, but they do invent!

The super rich media types are forced to be original. A common name does not open any doors in the Biz and even a comic-tragic name is better than no name at all.

The proper and serious Middle Classes ape the Upper Middle Classes or stick with family names that have been passed down as "heirloom" names.

The Lower Middle Classes name their children after famous people they admire for a moment such as soap opera characters, stars or football players.

The Upper Lower Classes give good bluff hail-fellow-well-met names or else follow the pattern of one of the higher classes.

The Lower classes have no names and no real hopes of making any for themselves so they are free to invent names or use nicknames to the almost complete exclusion of their baptismal names (if their parents ever bothered to have them baptized or christianed or whatever).

And the lower criminal classes have cast off bourgeois names and are known solely by pseudonyms for their own protection.

Traditional naming systems were designed to ensure that 1) people would know who your people are and 2) the names of the dead would not die with them but would be carried through the generations to keep some part of the dead alive among the living.

I could explain some of these in some detail but they drive me nuts because they are never so universal that you can assume they will be used. This makes a genealogist's life harder than it needs to be because what's the use of naming your first born after his grandparent or uncles or godparents if you aren't going to all use the same system consistently?

I've plenty of examples of all of these systems of baby-naming in my family tree, which now numbers over 56,000 people, probably 54,000 if I cleaned up all the duplications and errors and unconnected groups of people I haven't finished researching.

Each class abhors and eschews anything the next lower class likes and thus there is a sort of stripey pattern in society where one man's meat is another man's poison for all those above and below him.

The people at the top and bottom get on fine because they are all a bunch of con-artists and thieves.

durbnpoisn: I don't think I've heard of many cases where someone was found dead where there wasn't at least something to explain how it happened.


This is how nearly EVERY young celebrity death goes.  They announce the death, say it's currently unexplained, pending investigation.  We'll get leaks and some insider knowledge telling us more over the next 48 hour or so, followed by the "preliminary" medical examiners evaluation in the next few days (which will generally tell you what happened).  Final reports will come in 3 - 4 weeks, detailing what we already figured out.

This cycle is pretty routine by this point.

Jackpot777: Tyrone Slothrop: RIP, daughter of moderately famous person. 25 is way too young.

The original version of one of the songs he co-wrote is the 18th best selling single of all time. If you add the sales of the 1989 and 2004 releases, it becomes one of only ten songs to have sold more than 15 million physical copies.

Moderately famous, I guess. If you were telling kids to get off your lawn in the 1980s.


So what?  We are the World and Candle in the Wind 1997 both outrank it.  When was the last time you heard any of those songs?

When someone on Facebook was wondering if they found Astala and Phaedra in the house, I wondered what types of drugs they were (and I submitted it with this as part of a much better headline, etc.).

Also: I guess Bob Geldof still don't like Mondays. That would also have been a better headline.

/the "better headline" thing was done and over years ago. it's played out. new material.

New material? On Fark? This is the place where people submit BuzzFeed pages based on Reddit's front page. The only thing left of originality here is the RIP Meme, and enough people biatch when people post that too. "Waaah, someone that has free access to Fark posted something so that I, with my free access to Fark, have to scroll past a little more."
