WHAT DO WHITNEY HOUSTON AND QUORTHON FROM BATHORY HAVE IN COMMON?
No Clean Singing posted the below, which compares Whitney Houston to Quorthon from Bathory, and basically wonders aloud why the media got all in a tizzy over Houston’s death, but didn’t give two poops about Quorthon’s. It also answers its own question: it’s because people who actually bathe and have sex have heard of Whitney Houston.
It’s also kind of disturbing because it suggests that death is a competition or something. And death is not a competition. We are all going to die, and it’s not going to matter all that much what we did when we were alive, because eventually everyone who knew us will be dead, too, and then the sun will die, and then the planet will die, and then, literally, no one is going to remember you at all. So, really, we’re all winners in the game of death.
Still, there’s no denying that Quorthon was awesome, and I suspect some of you will take pleasure in this. So, enjoy.
