Gustavo Cerati crossed the “Puente” of Death with Joan Rivers
Such an unlikely death pairing we got today.
I originally wanted to write a post only about ex-Soda Stereo frontman Gustavo Cerati today, but then I also read about Joan Rivers passing away today and somehow I couldn’t ignore her death. Hopefully, we don’t get a death trilogy of sorts right now, even if the day’s not over yet. My mind somehow wondered about a death trilogy directed by Iñárritu, who has already done his own “death trilogy” with Amores Perros, 21 Grams — as criminal as it is to admit this, I just saw this recently and I can vouch for his entire death trilogy to be rated overall at least above the 4-star rating — and Babel.
As far as Rivers is concerned, I knew her first through several Red Carpet events that she hosted during the past decade. Honestly, I didn’t care much for her back then. However, the 2010 documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work showcases her in a different (and interesting) light. I had no idea she was a comedian back in her prime. The fact that she has filed and stored all the gags and jokes she’s written and performed over the years tells something about how professional she was.
By the way, her guest star appearance on Louie Season 2 was great to watch. Now, people are already saying/joking there’s a pending Louie death trilogy in the works with Rivers and Robin Williams, who guested on Season 3 and passed away not much ago. Laughter is medicine, as it is said.
Hell, you can even toss a Plants VS Zombies joke between her and Cerati, if you know what I mean.
