Your Turn

Items from Paul Walker crash site are headed to auction. Would you buy something from it? What if it was 50 years from now?

The person who took it should be arrested for stealing evidence from a crime scene

Sorry but he was no James Dean. In 50 years no one will remember who he was. Don't buy any of it if you think it will make you rich in 50 years.

Karen said...

Never. If someone I admired died, I'd rather have something that belonged to him/her than something from his/her scene of death.

Uhhhh... said...

gross.

Sugar said...

I'm listening.....

CocoaBeachBunny said...

But I'm not hearing an effing thing, Sugar! All morning! And we made her feel so welcome.

I find this sort of collecting to be so bizarre. Just...why? :/

Wat do Mexicans use to cut their pizza?

Little Caesars.

@Troy McClure. You're right. I was. *hanging head*

LottaColada said...

Why would anyone want that? "Oh cool, someone died in this." Logic.

Krystie Rachelle said...

I've watched enough episodes of supernatural to know better.

TalksTooMuch said...

So.weird, right, Rhysie?? I stayed in a Bed & Breakfast in Lubbock, TX (holla JSierra!) and stayed in a Buddy Holly theme room, where they had displayed the pair of glasses he was wearing when he died. Sooo not a cool artefact. Why would you want that?

No disrespect to Mr. Walker, who was, by all accounts, a prince of a guy, but I didn't find him interesting enough as an actor/celebrity to be at all interested in his belongings now, and texas rose is definitely right. His acting was not such as to make his relics worth purchasing decades hence. Nobody will remember him but people who enjoyed the Fast & Furious as kids.

No and no!

Several years back here in Oregon a guy kidnapped and killed two teenage girls from the same school a couple of weeks ( I think ) apart. Turns out to be the girls neighbor, and the father of one of their friends. It was a huge media spectacle and there was a make shift memorial set up outside the killers house, where the bodies were discovered. One day my ex ( EX!! ) fiancé went up to the memorial and stole one of the cards that was left there for the girls as a keepsake. I thought that was so beyond bizarre and disturbing. Hence the beginning of the end of our relationship!

In college, I temped for a guy who collected dead celeb stuff. I won't even go there with some of the things he had. My "job" was to last a few weeks and involved finding certain items. I lasted a few hours - it was so macabre, I just went to lunch and never came back.

N. Twinkie said...

No...Let him rest in peace.

I do not like calla lilies. Remember when calla lilies used to be everywhere in design and print in the early 90's? I do like Gerbera daisies.

hairydawg said...

ghoulish. the only death that excites me is my own, just to see if anything happens.

Sugar said...

Maybe she's waiting for the off topic post? Off to the off topic to wait for Poni.....

NomNom83 said...

It's foul. Not to mention, you were picking shit off of a fucking *body*.

Fifty years from now... still at least fucking weird. Macabre I get, but this was a particularly gruesome death. I don't get the appeal.

Count Jerkula said...

50yrs from now, no one will remember who he is.

Anna Belle said...

No, but there is a market for that stuff...every so often it comes up on ebay

Steampunk Jazz said...

Its very disrespectful , not to mention macabre. Items resonate with the life force of the people that own them ( if those items were loved or had strong emotional meaning) to have deaths imprinted would be nerve racking to someone sensitive to them.
Of course, anyone sensitive wouldn't do this , so ...pleasant dreams ghouls , you deserve it.

ureallyannoyme said...

Some person bought and destroyed John Wayne Gacy's paintings. Hopefully that's the fate of these items, too.

MISCH said...

Lord NO

Lady Heisenberg said...

There will always be demand & this a market for these items. I think the best way to deal with this inevitability is to somehow find ways to ensure that any profit from these kinds of items goes to the victims or to related charities.

Leekalicious said...

@Steampunk My thoughts exactly ... macabre is the word. What does it say about the person scavenging stuff from the site of someone's tragic death. I once bought a signed book of poetry written by someone who I knew had just died (a friend of a friend of a friend), and I still feel guilty about it.

Kels said...

I love calla lilies! They're my moms favorite.

Gayeld said...

Oh dear, I just bought yellow calla lilies at lunch time.

But yes, I do remember what you're talking about. I spent too much money on a picture frame my sister HAD TO HAVE for her wedding photo with calla lilies on it because she had [FAKE] calla lilies in her bouquet.

auntliddy said...

No, its sick now or in 50 years.

skippy said...

Never never never ! How dreadful for hiis child.

skippy said...

@ oneeyecharlie my family call gerbera's Happy flowers.at random times I buy them for the kids & put them in their bedrooms . They love it.

skippy said...

. I love calla Lilllies .Have to be white though. I really love all Lillies. All colours but the callas are always white. Never in a mixed bunch.

Snootches said...

I think it is disturbing. I also disagree with those who say he won't be remembered. He was in some of my favorite movies growing up!! Pleasantville, Joy Ride, She's All That, Varsity Blues... I think my generation will miss him most. Still bummed about it

Margaux said...

That's really gross - how is this allowed to happen?
