Wow. What a loss. Richard Blackwell, the genius who gave us the annual "Worst Dressed List," died today. He apparently died from an intestinal infection. Doctors listed the infection as the 23rd Awesomest Infection of the Year.
Blackwell sought to bring joy to the world and achieve a level of spirituality so few had.
As Blackwell recounted in his autobiography, "From Rags to Bitches," he aimed "to become my most unforgettable creation: king of the caustic quote, arbiter of good taste and bad, the ultimate mix of madness, marketing and media attention."As Buddha said, "Be sassy!"
We at Stop All Monsters would like to bid a fond adieu to the man who set the lowest bar of personal achievement known to man. His vacuous existence and temporary stain upon humanity will be quickly forgotten, and yet, he will forever be listed as one of the "50 Most Useless" humans of all time. So long, champ.
And our sympathies to the deadly infection, for wasting its power and strength on something that died inside years ago.
