they're all still alive

when i was in college, i worked at the circulation desk at the library there, where we would amuse ourselves with games of freecell, indian pop music videos, and going on the internet white pages and looking up the names of random dead celebrities and fictional characters. a friend of mine and i tried this the other day and here's what we came up with:

3 willy wonkas
49 clark kents
1 marvin gaye
15 elvis presleys
2 tupac shakurs
1 layne staley
1 biggie smalls
5 andy warhols
4 kurt cobains
30 frank zappas
1 sid vicious
36 curtis mayfields
4 joe strummers
1 frank sinatra
300 marilyn monroes

6 joe schmoes
17 hong kongs
