Life’s Strange Coincidences
This seems like something out of the movie Magnolia. I just came across a story over at cnn.com stating that TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes dies in wreck. While I’m not exactly a big TLC or hip-hop fan this news is significant to me on a couple levels:
- TLC opened for Boyz 2 Men and M.C. Hammer at the first concert I ever attended.
- I went to said concert with my brother back in the summer of 1992 because my dad won two tickets from a local radio station.
- My dad won the tickets by answering a payphone at a 7-11 that he just happened to be driving by when a local radio station announced that whoever answered the phone at that location would receive two tickets to the concert.
- Yesterday, the day Lisa Lopes died, was exactly one year from the day my father died from cancer.
