please don’t take my sunshine away

March 9, 2010

If you haven’t heard yet, Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse committed suicide last Saturday, March 6.

This just sets so uneasy with me after so many other great musicians and artists have been experiencing this same thing, such as Alexander Mcqueen who was found dead less than a month ago.

How can someone that can create something so beautiful:

end up so tragic. It is a link  we will see again and again, the madness and beauty of depression, the unsettled passionate artist. This has been something I have been pondering over the past few days and as much as I appreciate the sparkle and fade of these artists I am mortified by their actions. However, I am left to wonder if whether you can be a truly great artist without accepting the defeat and gritty tragedy of the human condition and this world. It is something that I fear will never be answered.

But please, if you or anyone you know needs help, please take action.
