I don't get here very much these days, but just saw the news the Cory Monteith (Finn from Glee) has been found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver.

I know there used to be quite a few Gleeks here at one time.

The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it.

That's sad. I don't watch Glee but I read recently that he was struggling with addictions.

I haven't watched Glee in a couple years. I did meet him briefly in NYC while he was promoting the show before it even aired. He was so nice and very down to earth. I'm so sad that it looks like his addictions got the best of him.

So very sad. Addiction is a absolute monster

What a shame. In reading his bio, he seemed to be quite troubled before he got very lucky with the opportunity for Glee. Unfortunately I guess it is so very hard to leave your troubles behind you. I always liked his character and he seemed like he was probably a pretty nice in real life too.
