    Off To Parts Unknown

    Some loved him, some hated him--I always admired his "fuck it" attitude.

    He was cool as fuck and had one of the best jobs in the world. Some might say it was one too many bad airport hamburgers...but I think not. Anyway...I heard the news about 9am on the radio this morning. For a few moments I forgot where I was going and had to circle back. Been a bad week. Lost a childhood friend to his own demons a few days ago...and now a TV presenter who seemed to have it all. A wee bit of advice...hug your loved ones while they're still here.

    Agree w. SlyFoxx, it shocking with these suicides where everyone seem to react with “wow, I didn’t see that coming... I mean he/she had it all”.
    Obviously the man dosn’t hang himself for no reason, so yeah he must have been truly miserable inside behind that cool “fuck-it-all” exterior... Why didn’t someone step in and hug him in time? Makes me sad

    I got to see his show while in the US, it became a must see. The last one I saw was filmed in Iceland, I commented to a friend “Bourdain is not looking well”. We put it down to the strange assortment of food he was enjoying, but perhaps it was more than that.
    An interesting guy with a certain way about him, very cool.
    RIP.

    He had some great shows. I liked his style and found his delivery and the crew's production to be spot on nearly all the time.

    I've been down in the dumps myself, but I cannot imagine being low enough to be take my own life. He must have been in exceptional mental pain. Tragic all ways to Sunday. Very sad indeed.

    Huh, I wonder why the Anthony Bourdain remembrance thread only has four posts? Oh yeah... because some wannabe-clever chucklefuck left his name out of the title.

    Hey ZB, perhaps a little respect for the departed should take precedence over a personal feud...

    Maybe he needs a hug?
