September 12

:: September 12th, “The Day After” for many people, I suppose, is a significant day in my life. It’s my father’s birthday, the birthday of another very close friend, and the day in 1983 I was hired to work at the SciTech Library, where I remain to this day. For me Sept 12 is always a day of celebration.

:: What a sad morning, however. I woke up to learn that Johnny Cash and John Ritter both passed away overnight. Ritter’s death was a shock, as he appeared to be in fine health when he collapsed on the set of his television show. Cash’s death resonates through the music industry – his influence and impact was and is immeasurable. What other artist, late in his or her career, would cover Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails? He is already sadly missed.

    I have often wondered how Johnny Cash came about to record both Hurt and Rusty Cage. Was he really into Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden? Did some producer suggest these songs? In any event, he will be missed. I brought “Johnny Cash at San Quentin” to listen to at work today.

    I am listening to Johnny Cash’s version of Hurt as I’m typing this. It is on repeat for about 15 minutes now…

    The death of John Ritter came as a serious blow to my family because he was the voice of Clifford the Big Red Dog. And, if that were not enough of a disaster, the same week saw the death of the actress that did the voice of Cailou….

    Thank goodness for reruns.
