Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Report: Amy Winehouse found dead at home

As was mentioned above, if someone isn't ready to get sober, rehab won't do a thing for them. There's people that go to rehab with the best intentions and find a way to break out to do drugs. She obviously wasn't ready to get clean considering that she wrote a song about it.

The 27 thing IS weird. When I was a kid and found out that Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison all died at 27, I thought they were so old. Now that I'm 40, they seem like kids to me.

Ironically, in a way, I stopped doing drugs at 27 and haven't touched them since.

I think what kids that are experimenting with anything should be told is, that once you try anything at all that can change your mood, you'll never be the same again. They always said that once you did acid, you'd never be the same again. Well, you're never the same again after you drink coffee or smoke a cigarette either. You'll always crave them even after 20 years of never touching them. Never mind heavier drugs.

To put it in a weird way.................drugs never stop haunting the attic of your mind.

I haven't touched cocaine in 13 years but if I read a book where someone's doing it, I get that urge and it's annoying. It's a hell of a lot easier to just not try anything in the first place.

Anyway, she was a great talent gone too soon.

RIP Amy

I don't know if this is what they were doing but were they trying to make the maple leaf look like a jet in the primary logo? If you turn the logo upside down and really, really use your imagination, the leaf kind of looks like a jet.

Otherwise, I don't see why they put a point at the bottom of the leaf and then covered the one at the top.

Either way, I really don't like it. I don't mind the secondary one but the primary one looks very plain to me.
