Elliot Smith died. Apparently he committed suicide. I *just* found out and I feel like I’m in shock. This is so incredibly sad. What a loss! What a completely *pointless* loss to both music and the world.

It makes no sense. Assholes who contribute nothing to society but pain and misery don’t have the good sense to kill themselves, but a poet like Elliot Smith, who made the world more beautiful, feels that he has to take his own life.

The world became a little bit uglier today.
