Anthony Bourdain dies.

I must say he definitely made the show “Parts Unknown” very interesting. I liked the authenticity of the man’s personality. He didn’t seemed to try to pretend to be someone he wasn’t. He admitted he did it all during his youth. Drugs, alcohol, wild sex life,  I won’t say that’s the right way to live but I’ll say it’s the authentic way to live if that’s who you are. Be who you are and don’t try to pretend to be someone else.

I liked the show because I learned a lot about parts of the world that wasn’t commonly shown on tours of that particular city. And apparently lots of other people did too.

He visited neighborhoods and places in a city that others didn’t consider glamor or important enough to step foot in. Let alone sit and chat with the locals. Yes, I know it was staged. All shows are. Even so -called reality shows are staged.  Well, today he was found dead  at 61 in his apartment. Apparently it was suicide.

I guess this goes to show no matter how upbeat, cheerful and having it all together a person may seems on the outside we never know what’s going on beneath the surface.

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
