The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

From those dying, to those wanting to die--in front of an audience, yet--a planned concert event here in St. Pete that was to feature a real, no-fooling suicide onstage has been cancelled. The band, Hell On Earth (the site is down as of this writing, presumably due to the massive amount of traffic it's getting as a result of all this), is vowing to go ahead with the performance despite having no venue.

I could write quite a bit on this, as it touches on so many topics I love to ruminate on: Suicide, publicity shock tactics, sucky metal bands, euthanasia, and so on. But really, I think this all speaks for itself.
