Monday Whatever

What a goddamned blithering idiot this woman is. If you can't be in the top 1 percent or fraction thereof who gives a shit about "manners" and "formality," why not be a pretentious individual and join them?

It is disgusting.

I mean, who fucking cares about which direction the knife faces or where the salt and pepper shakers should be?

So says the two-time marriage loser.

Obituary: Actress Elaine Riley, 98, died on December 7.

She mostly appeared in films of the 1940s and 1950s.

Another obituary: Ellsworth Kelly, 92, prominent painter and sculptor.

Yet another: Musician Lemmy Kilmister, 70, after a short battle with an aggressive cancer.

Born Dec. 24, 1945, in Staffordshire, England, Lemmy claimed he earned his nickname as a youth by repeatedly asking friends to "lend me a quid till Friday." He was inspired by the Beatles to become a musician and worked as a roadie for the Jimi Hendrix Experience in the 1960s. His first musical success came in the early 1970s as a member of Hawkwind, where he developed a distinctive bass style and sang lead vocals on the 1972 hit "Silver Machine."

In 1975, Lemmy founded Motorhead, a band that has had a huge influence on the heavy metal genre, largely because of Lemmy's furious bass playing, guttural vocals and innovative songwriting. His unique style brought punk influences to heavy metal, resulting in metal classics such as "Ace of Spades" and "Overkill." Lemmy also co-wrote songs for Ozzy Osbourne's 1991 album "No More Tears," including the No. 2 hit "Mama, I'm Coming Home" and the Grammy-winning "I Don't Want to Change the World."
