Chris Penn in Blogland

We aren't the only ones sorry to see Chris Penn go; there have been tons of tributes and goodbyes. Still no news of what might have been the cause, but according to the Santa Monica Daily Press, some neighbors thought he was staying up late and acting erratically. Hey, blogland is all about erratic behavior and late nights.

There are also a couple of lighthearted conspiracy theories (Harvey Keitel, a disgruntled date). Someone noted that indie icons are dropping fast, and fears that Steve Buscemi could be next.

Somewhere out there in blogland, someone has already planned a Chris Penn drinkfest for this weekend. Cheers.
