Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

Saturday, March 20, 2004  

Over on Sweet Adeline, the Elliott Smith messageboard where the "sad kids" Mary Lou Lord described congregate, stories continue to circulate. More than one correspondent is convinced they know the truth about the death, because Smith has appeared to them in a dream and revealed all....

In a way, you cannot really blame them for believing that Smith is trying to reach them in death: intimate, wracked with sorrow and personal details, his music certainly tried to reach people when he was alive. The website's news pages report that Smith's family will release his final album later this year. One of its tracks is called See You In Heaven.

--From the cover story of yesterday's UK Guardian Friday Review, which suggests that musician Elliott Smith's death last year may not have been a suicide after all.
