birds singing in the sycamore tree, dream a little dream of me

When I was 9 or 10 I watched the movie Silver Bullet at Tammy Mundt's house. It scared the living crap out of me and it ignited my crush on Corey Haim. After that, my room basically became a shrine of Teen Beat posters.

As with most crushes, it didn't last long and after Lost Boys I think I moved on to Johnny Depp who was in 21 Jump Street at the time or possibly River Phoenix but Corey Haim was and will always be my very first poster boy.

There was an interesting (well, depends on who you are I guess) article on which basically amounted to Corey Feldman calling out everyone for not being there during Corey Haim's life yet actively mourning him on Twitter etc. Very pointed.

I actually watched a few episodes of The Two Corey's on A&E but it was mostly just sad to see someone who had it all and then smoked/snorted/injected it all away. I don't think it gets much worse than Meth addiction.

Why do I feel like they'll be writing the same things about Lindsay Lohan in about 10 years...

  1. While I was a bit old, I still thought Corey was an awfully cute kid. It's sad how some people just don't survive the fame machine. One that really shocked me and I kinda missed - because it happened over Christmas when I was in the Deacon no news zone - was Brittany Murphy. She never struck me as the party girl type, but when you see pictures of her so was SO thin it was scary. How could her family not know something was seriously wrong?! I can't imagine Lilo lasting 10 years.
