So, rushing through the chaos of the internet today is the news that Jonathan Brandis is dead. What's odd about the story is that it's gotten no news coverage -- the best wrap-up I could find was by this blogger here, where the girl actually called the morgue to make sure there was a dead guy in it.
Jonathan Brandis. My first celebrity crush, who made me want to be smart and funny because his character on Seaquest seemed to like that in a girl, his character who made being a geek awesome, who made me want to be more.
I didn't see his later work. Maybe I should have. Maybe this is a sign to finally sit down and watch Ride With the Devil. As well as Sidekicks.
Jonathan Brandis is dead, and no one cares. Something is wrong with the world.
