2016 Has Lost Its Shit
It is January 14th, and Flipside can confirm that 2016 has already completely lost its shit.
First, funky space-legend David Bowie was ripped from our lives with no warning whatsoever. Within four days, when basically no one was finished grieving (the Flipside team are still recovering from our bacchanalian coke/milk/red peppers orgy in honour of Bowie), brilliant actor Alan Rickman has also died…also without ANY FUCKING WARNING.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US, 2016? SERIOUSLY? WHAT DID WE FUCKING DO TO YOU? We made New Year’s resolutions, some of us stopped drinking for this month, and at what is famously already the most depressing time of the year, you kill off two absolute fucking legends, who still had good years ahead of them.
What next, God? Huh? David Attenborough? All the members of Crosby, Stills Nash and Young? Cat Deeley? Or maybe it’s just the apocalypse. Maybe come March, this bullshit charade that we call ‘human life on Earth’ will finally be done and dusted, and we won’t have to wonder what horrendous surprises this year holds for us.
2016 is fucking bullshit.
Happy new year, everyone.
