Wow ... What a Bummer: Elliot...

Wow ... What a Bummer: Elliott Smith, a guy who helped keep naked melody & harmony ren't own any of his records, but I was usually glad to hear his haunted voice, and it was weirdly comforting to know that he lived in our neighborhood ... until now.

He was a good friend of my cousin, who is also a musician in Portland. (Elliot Smith started in Portland before moving south.)

I didn't know him or his music, but now I feel terrible.

He stabbed himself?

Might be a good time to get somebody to write something knowledgable on the possibility of stabbing yourself to death. Usually it's more of a falling on one's sword/knife type of action. It's hard to imagine being able to actually thrust a knive into your own chest to the degree that it causes death... I suspect some kind of acoustic backlash thing...
