Elliot Smith killed himself today. I downloaded a few songs of his back in the Napster heyday and ended up buying a few CDs. I had the opportunity to see him live a few times in SF, but never went.
Crap, I really liked his stuff.
It's a little weird, in a life-imitates-art sort of way, to realize his song was used in a suicide scene (in The Royal Tennenbaums), and now he's gone and done that himself.
