… followed by Chester.

Chris Cornell’s passing was pretty sad. And now Chester hanging himself (like Chris) on Chris’ birthday is pretty rough.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely mean what I said but still:

Like most people my age, I did not like the most of the stuff Linkin Park did after Meteora but enjoyed their music since I was a kid. I was listening to pretty much nothing else and they kind of introduced me to “heavier” music (or at least what you consider heavy when you are young and pure). Sure, Chester is not alone in Linkin Park, but his voice pretty much played a major role for why I love their music so much. I really loved that… you know what I mean. Everyone does.

Linkin Park is and was always about “I scream, my feelings hurt so much, I scream”-stuff, but now that Chester’s dead, it’s really heartbreaking to hear him sing about dying and “when my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done” (like seriously, Leave out all the Rest is making my chest ache).

Go ahead and listen to the song below. It’s just so damn perfect… and sad both of them are no more.

Chris Cornell’s Death

Griefing on the internet about the loss of someone dear is really not my thing. And the public display of grief and/or condolencens about the death of a celebrity you didn’t even know personally (“someone dear” should be mutually, right?) is IMHO a little pathetic.

But man, I loved that guy. Really, really sad that he felt the need to hang himself (as of 19th May 2017). Go listen to his stuff on YouTube.

Hello Internet

Hi everyone!

After fiddling some hours with this blog’s layout and posting a dozen of times Lorem Ipsums, setting up some other crap and generally getting around, how wordpress actually works ect….. I think it’s now time for my first post. And here it is.

I don’t know to whom I am actually writing this lol, I have no plans of promoting my blog what-so-ever. But still, I think it’s great to write down some thoughts or accomplishments or generally cool stuff I wrote (not my blog posts… but code). If there would be just one person reading my blog and having an inspiration in some kind of way, I am happy.

If you came by just by accident, go check out who I am https://blog.lamsal.com/about and what this blog will be mostly about.

So, uh, “stay tuned” or something!
