I read dead people

Anyone feeling bored? Well have I got the time killer for you!

For the past two or three days, I've been following one of the silliest LJ dramas ever. I want to explain it, but I fear that's impossible without drafting a seven page flow chart. That said, I'll give it a try:

About three days ago, purple_brain posted in ljers4eternity that shade_on_heroin had committed suicide. A random smattering of folks (myself included) checked out shade_on_heroin's journal (which is now friends locked, unfortunately), which was basically nothing but page after page of glorification of heroin and the junkie lifestyle (shit like "OMG! I just shot up and I'm soooo high!"), most likely written by someone who fainted the last time his or her pediatrician tried to give him/her a tetanus shot.

At any rate, someone said "I smell a fake" and I gave my two cents (which basically amounted to "I used to be a junkie and no way would I have had the motivation to run online every twelve seconds and update a fucking LiveJournal"), and then all Hell broke loose.

The supposed suicide found its way to fake_lj_deaths (most posts are members-only, and if you're not a member yet, I highly recommend joining ... it's a laugh riot!), and then some yutz calling him/herself eyes_of_kali started trolling all the related posts on both journals, going on and on about how we wouldn't let pyromantik (shade_on_heroin's supposed best friend) grieve (nevermind the fact that no one had actually contacted pyromantik and said diddly to her).

But wait: it gets better.

Then people at fake_lj_deaths start looking into pyromantik, and discover that she's got something like 70 different screen names on like four different journaling sites, the main one (pyromantik) being less than a year old and having more than 6,000 updates. eyes_of_kali is, of course, eventually found out to be nothing more than just another one of pyromantik's alter egos. But guess who else is one of pyromantik's identities? pancake_of_doom, otherwise known as the spirit of Kurt Cobain.

Yes, you heard me right. The spirit of Kurt Cobain has a LiveJournal.

I could go on and on, but I think you should just all check out fake_lj_deaths for yourselves. Just be warned: it's addictive.

I have really enjoyed my forays into fake lj deaths, but it's too mean spirited for me to read all the time. Anyway, the fake junkie thing is so disturbing and I guess, ya, funny.
