In death, as in life, Anthony Bourdain brought us closer together.
On his award-winning series, "Parts Unknown," Bourdain brought the world home to CNN viewers. Through the simple act of sharing meals, he showcased both the extraordinary diversity of cultures and cuisines, yet how much we all have in common.
Tragically, he proved this again on Friday. Bourdain's death shook television viewers around the world. The most common sentiment: "I feel like I've lost a friend."
Its so interesting watching the psychopath Anderson CooPer pretend that he feels emotions.This truly is a lesson in psycology for everyone to see. Watch as Anderson preys on you the viewer aka host. Gotta love that psychopaths ego it gives him the strength to pretend he has feelings. This is just incredible to watch. Bravo Psychopath Anderson Cooper Bravo.
The world does not exist for your personal gratification or comfort. It exists for you to contribute something to it and thereby benefit you. Addicts do not deserve empathy of any kind. Not until they accept their weakness, commit to rehab and making changes. Some will never learn that. We need to stop glorifying fuck ups.
It has taken me several days to be able to comment on this tragic loss. I still have not been able to completely absorb the sheer enormity of this. I have closely watched his trajectory into super-stardom. His humility, open mindedness and bravura made him a champion among men. His openness about his own darkness and ugliness put him on an ordinary plane-he was one of us. He was us. His adventures, his love of food and people opened this world to me and made me accept different cultures and culinary offerings. He has certainly left an indelible mark on my heart and I am completely devastated at his passing. My heart is broken and won’t likely be the same ever again. My heart goes out to his family. I will miss you my dear friend. See you on the other side.💔💔💔💔💔💔
"What good is it if a man gains the whole world but loses his soul" - Jesus. People don't kill themselves because they are sad. They kill themselves for lack of hope. Put your hope in Jesus and you will live eternal.
Ppl just don't understand depression, and it's too shameful to get help especially for someone as famous as him. I don't agree with the warning signs, I suffer from server depression, attempted suicide an was dead for 17 seconds with tubes In my throat an unconscious for 4 days but I put on a show that I'm the happiest girl in the world and that's how most see me. Please don't flood me with comments cause I'm doing better and have been in therapy a while now. I say this cause the warning signs are not always true, those who show to be overly happy is also a sign, look at all the comedians who suffer depression. The best to all who deal with this an RIP dear Anthony
I watched one episode of "Parts Unknown" recently, and that was enough for me, although I couldn't help but see what a likable guy he was. I rapidly came to the conclusion that I could never do what he did so well. It was the segment on Myanmar, with him dining with a local at some hole-in-the-wall tea shop/restaurant. All I could think about was that not a single one of the cooks and kitchen workers had ever seen a roll of toilet paper or a bar of soap.
imo, when 1st saw his show no reservations i enjoyed it more than other shows simply because he not only incorporated food but it was abt the travel in itself, the alcoholic beverages & of course the people and cultures that he was introduced to. very down to earth and real. RIP Anthony Bourdain
if i traveled the entire world i would kill myself too, he was just done with the world, he's ready to travel the universe, i feel he knew that was his next level, there is no doubt in my mind that he heard a voice from far away that told him to kill himself, but i dont' think he hung himself, i think he decided to overdose on heroine one last time and had his whole "hanging" death faked...he had the money to make it all happen
Anderson, even tho I think you are the biggest [pasty ass] douche EVER, for throwing Kathy under the bus... you slightly get a pass for this! Anthony was one of my heros. His life seems almost perfect and enviable... You really just never know. Well, you could apologize to Kathy and make things right Anderson... 🤔
Thanks Anderson you two are some of my favorite TV people.I am really going to miss watching Anthony. I loved his show.very interesting about other countries. many very beautiful. If I had the money I would like to travel to them.Anthony you had the beautiful life that many of us could only dream of.r.I.p.young man.Gone to soon.Melissa A.june2018
I'd heard his name before - but I'd never seen anything he'd done. I don't really watch a lot of TV or find much of it interesting; I generally have better things to do with my time.
However, I've been watching some videos of his shows, and I'm not usually one to give a rat's fuck about celebrities, but the world lost a tremendously interesting and inspiring person in him. I just finished watching a show he did on Armenia, and you know this wasn't a persona, but that he was a caring, thoughtful person who wanted to hear other people's stories and to share those stories with the world. This was the kind of person who brought other people's stories out with great enthusiasm and not just to make a television show, but because you could tell that he enjoyed listening to their view on the world and what they had to offer. Obviously deeply flawed, but still just a wonderful person at heart. It's too bad this had to happen. I've been enjoying watching various interviews and shows during the night and I'm going to keep going tomorrow.
This is horrible. I can't believe he did this to himself. He was loved throughout the entire world, and he was, and still is, amazing.
This is a great message. Thank you Anderson, and thank you Anthony.
R.I.P Anthony Bourdain. May you have a good life in Heaven.
One of your biggest fans,
Right, how could i forget that one!? Have you tried MMS? I treat everything as infection with fantastic result. I successfully treated a friend with reoccurring pain from an injury by massaging turpentine into the painful area. The turp killed the bugs that were feeding on the tissues and his pain was over. There is a cure somewhere.
Ncyim RSD is a hell on earth in the form of a rare dibilating disease that causes dysfunction of nervous and immune systems. It causes non stop severe pain that is currently ranked as the most painful chronic condition known to man today. Ranks above childbirth unmediated, or finger amputation non medicated. Mine is centralized so I have little hope or recovery. I also suffer severe anxiety and depression.
I've experienced it myself and treated others with the same effect. Maybe you are looking for an RCT? Ha ha! Joke! The Rockafella Foundation destroyed that possibility. Just try it and see how you do. I'll coach you if needed. Here's something: https://www.top10homeremedies.com/news-facts/10-warning-signs-body-full-parasites.html What's RSD?
Suicide contagion? LOL What a lot of made up bollocks. How about "Tying up loose ends contagion"? - Tell me Anderson Cooper of the Central Intelligence Agency, how does one stop someone telling secrets in your world? Restraining order?
Ive had a few injuries, 10 total surgeries, I have a Ruptured disc, T-11 T-12 which must be repaired from the front so very invasive. Pain and anxiety is not treated with best meds to control these issues are not controlled by Drs but rather politicians so, ive got anxiety and cant go out for a run, cant work a couple extra hours or have extra sex, I pace the floor, which hurts after a few minutes, in misery.
I think about going out like Anthony very often.
Unfortunately the recent deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade are shedding light on mental illness and challenging our perception on stereotypes. Depression is mental illness and like any other illness it's not something you can snap out of or necessarily understand. I've been struggling with mental illness since my early childhood and it's not something that just goes away. It's an on going struggle and it does not discriminate no matter who you are or what your family and/or financial situation is. Like any other decease you have to live with it all your life not knowing when and why it happens but acknowledging the fact it will always be bellow the surface waiting for the right moment to pop up and show it's ugly face. I can not count the times I've ended up in a dark place and contemplated suicide but I can say this. Although the struggle is on going and depression might show up at any time with no apparent rime or reason there is hope. Keep the conversation open talk about it and try to Educate yourself and others so when it does point it's ugly head you have a support system.
Because we live in a very polluted world (by metals, pesticides, plastics, etc), a lot of people who eat indiscriminately poison themselves. If you eat high mercury fish, you get mercury poisoning and mercury is a neurotoxin that causes severe depression among many other symptoms.
i knew about anthony’s death, but it wasn’t until i watched this video with Anderson that i finally let myself cry. i sobbed. i can’t believe he’s not with us anymore. Anthony was one of my heroes. One of my favorite things he would always say was “I learned something new today.” Anthony, I will continue to learn something new everyday.
He sounds like he could easily be pushed towards eating human flesh it’s weird to me that a lot of these healthy famous people just die out of nowhere seem more like this years pick of satanic sacrifices to me somebody should investigate this
i like anderson, but even he, should realize the blatant pawning off of his supposed 'friendship' with bourdain over the years being used by mass media to conveniently support the 'fact' of tonys 'suicide'...this is literally 'cnn is fake news' propoganda...the truest thing trump has said lol...tony was murdered, and asia has something to do with it to level up in parts of society you arent allowed to know about...magic is real, the moon moves the tides we are 90% water...read manly hall secret teachings, then holla, peace.
"The failing Anthony Bourdain was a coward for taking his own life. He's a loser who voted for Crooked Hilary. Only failing Liberals and fake news CNN embrace this disgrace man" American President Donald Trump. Vote Trump 2020
"Suicide contagent" sounds like the same shit the advertizing agency "Viagra" hired to think up the quote, disease "Erectile Disfuntion". Bet ya antidepressant sales went up. Mess with your brain more than the food you eat.
