A Life Not Wasted
In 2016 I met him at a very small comic con-adjecent event, and I was the only one waiting for his meet & greet when he got there. He signed a Fightclub/ Bob's tits painting I had and we talked about the movie for a bit. He told me the fake tits were made out of flaxseed, and he feels horrible for large chested women after having experienced how heavy it weighs on your back. I love telling people that story & fun fact. RIP
Sad times. Apparently a very pleasant and genuine person and certainly a great performer.
I understand. In death, a member of Project Mayhem has a name. His name is Robert Paulson.
Hot patootie bless his soul, he really loved that rock and roll. RIP
Great admirer of the guy. Reading up on his life reminded me of something Chuck said in the recent Joe Rogan interview about blunt force trauma to the head seems to affect people's skills - think Chuck said, that getting hit in the head inspired him to write Fight Club (paraphrasing my understanding of the comment - hope i got it right). Point being, that Meat Loaf has told the story how a shot put hit him in the head when he was a teenager and he found his singing voice because of that. PS: for anyone interested, the full Podcast Interview from Eli Roth's history of Horror with Meat is amazing.
I actually made meatloaf for the first time in a year yesterday. I have leftovers, and will consume meatloaf in his honor tonight.
As a consumer, you're alive and well, bitch tits and all. I'll watch fight club tonight, where you still reside. To Meat Loaf, I raise a glass. If it were not for you, my notches would be fewer.
My sympathies for your loss.
In my outlier world (they don't call me Karen from Canada for nothing), I sprang out of bed all psyched up because it's my husband's birthday, and heard a reference to Fight Club a few minutes later. A very auspicious reference to not only one of our most fervent wedding wishers but also to other close friends who acted as our wedding party (and saw Meatloaf in concert).
And it's the monthly birthday (e.g. someone born on X/21) of someone else I kind of admire so it's truly a day to celebrate life.
Plus I'm pumped from having left the house after self-imposed lockdown of a few days due to the cold. I snuck out in the -16.5 F weather to snag some goodies for my husband. He didn't even know I had left the home! Was he ever tickled.
So that's what's doing here.
I don't sound like much of a groupie now, eh? ;) Anyway I'm an amateur musician and more of a Brit prog rock kinda gal, admittedly.
Thanks for all your recent posts. You can go back to writing now! haha
I know the other post was TL;dr.
To cut to the chase, are you doing a death pool for rock stars too now? I would pick one of "The Toxic Twins" but it's hard to tell if my favourite singer is even still alive, from all the self-embalming he's done over the years.
His name is Robert Paulson
His name was Robert Paulson.
On my birthday last Summer, Meatloaf signed a copy of “Fight Club” right where his character comes in. He FaceTimed with me since I was in the ER the day before and couldn’t go, but Rob did. He was pretty funny— told me to get back to the laundry. Lol.
What a very sad day today is— go in peace, brother. Thank you for your gifts that you shared with us. ♥️🥺
I never thought I'd get to see him live, but he played a concert in CT maybe 10 years ago. In his 60's but you'd never know it. That voice. This one hit me right in the heart. Thank you for saying something here in honor of him.
His name was Marvin Aday....His name was Marvin Aday....
Shit, yet another hero of , gone. Does that mean I should make sure my so-called affairs are straight?
Say goodbye, Riff…
His name was Robert Paulson. : (
