Attention recovering stalkers: mild voyeouristic content alert. Where were you when you heard that Jim Carroll died? I was sitting in front of my computer last night, when I came across the news reading the Awl in my RSS reader. The reason that this struck me as odd is that at 5:47 pm on Sunday (that would be the day before yesterday), I posted a video of Carroll’s song People Who Died on my tumblr (you can confirm this by refreshing the page today at 5:47, when the date stamp should change from “one day ago” to “two days ago”). I assumed that I’d heard about the death sometime Sunday afternoon, and that’d sparked the post. So, I checked my firefox history — you can see me posting the video at the top, and no mention of Carroll in the preceding few hours. Ah, maybe I heard about it on twitter? Nope.
SO, I’m provisionally going with Coincidence, but watch the tumblr for predictions of future deaths.
One thought on “Just one of those coincidences”
What’s really crazy is that I was listening to the song “dead rock ‘n’ rollers” by detention only like an hour before I heard about Jim Carroll.
Skip ahead to 1:14 for the direct reference to Jim Carroll.
