A decade later...Phil Hartman.


Really has it been ten years? Its funny what hits you in life as a loss. I feel that about Phil Hartman's murder. Before it happened I didn't give Phil Hartman much thought. Kinda just appreciated the fact he was there. Dude was freakin great. I miss that voice. The Simpsons aint the same. I can't even watch the Clinton impression because I can't laugh at it. A while back, my wife and I were flipping channels and came across that Seinfeld episode where he calls Elaine in the middle of the night. I never got into NewsRadio, but I loved him when he was in CB4. Damn I miss this guy.

I remember the day it happened because I heard it on the radio while I was on the way home from my psychiatrist's office who was desparetly trying to find the right meds for me during a bad depression. That was around the time of my suicide "gesture" as well. I thought, "There but for the grace of God go I." (I loved my husband desparelty but feared a psychotic break might be on the horizon.)

Oh, I forgot to mention I remember when they found Kurt Cobain, too. I heard it on the radio on the way to the hospital to have my oldest son. It messed with my head: death and life colliding in my thoughts.
