Vicky Cornell Pens Emotional Letter To Late Husband Chris Cornell

(TRR) Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell passed away last week at the age of 52. Initially his death was ruled a suicide by the Detroit medical examiner, however Cornell’s wife Vicky Cornell is adamant that her husband did not intentionally take his own life. She believes his actions on the eve of his passing were influenced by an accidental overdose of his prescription anxiety medication.

Today, Vicky penned an emotional letter to her late husband which was published by our friends at Billboard. “To my sweet Christopher,” she begins. She goes on to make final promises to Cornell, stating, “I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies.” Read the full note below:

To My Sweet Christopher,

You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.

You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn’t be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.

I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.

I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.

Always and forever,

Your Vicky

Chris Cornell’s remains have been cremated ahead of a private funeral to be held this Friday, May 26 in Los Angeles, CA. Our continued thoughts and prayers are with Chris, his beloved wife Vicky, their children, Soundgarden, Audioslave, and all of Chris’s friends and family.

DWP released the following statement regarding the Rocklahoma lineup change:

It’s been a challenging week for everyone, as Chris Cornell was such a meaningful individual and artist to us. But our belief is he would want us to move forward. We are truly honored to have Live join the Rocklahoma lineup for the very first time, and appreciate the band making themselves available for this unexpected performance.

Although we all wish it were under different circumstances with regard to the passing of the incomparable Chris Cornell, Live is honored and excited to perform at Rocklahoma this weekend. Chris and Soundgarden will forever inspire us and we’ll do our best to celebrate and express our sincere gratitude for everything they have given us with our concert.

Why Peter Ness Trolling Live Blackjack Dealers Must Be Seen

Peter Ness is a blackjack player and he has his own site which is dedicated to teaching others how to play blackjack online and offline. He is also known for trolling people and as you can see in this video, Peter Ness, has taken advantage of his unique name when introducing himself to live blackjack dealers.

If you have ever played live blackjack, then you will know that the live dealer will first welcome you by your first initial and last name. This has made many people have a good chuckle, as the player Peter Ness, became P. Ness.

Now, of course, these dealers are meant to be professional at all times, but how can you not laugh when a player has a funny name like P. Ness. In the clip, there are several popular casino brands which include 888 casinos, Unibet, Platinum Casino and others. Also, if you have ever doubted that live dealers are actually live then watch the video because you will see they are definitely live.

There are some dealers that got the joke immediately, others were slower to catch on and other croupiers just brushed it off. However, the video is definitely worth a watch just to see some of the reactions of the dealers. There are some dealers that just can’t stop but laugh and who can blame them?

Not All Videos Are Created Equal
You will see that there are 3 videos from Peter Ness where he trolls dealers, but part 1 is the one you want to watch. In the other 2 videos, he uses other names to see what the dealers would do and how they would react, but these videos are shorter and have also not received the same attention as part 1. In fact, part 1 of his video has received over 2 million views, which shows that we all love a good laugh.

Clean and Innocent Fun
People that have seen the video, have left over 1000 comments on YouTube alone. The video has been shared and posted on most social sites and has gone viral. It just shows that even though the joke is a little juvenile, when something is simple and funny, then many people can share in the enjoyment.

You Can Learn a Trick or Two
Besides the funny side of the videos, there is also something to be learnt. The videos provide great examples how live dealer blackjack works. You can see that virtual chips are placed on the table and the cards are dealt and collected by the dealers. All the cards are real and all equipment used is real.

If you have a couple of minutes and are looking for a good laugh, then check out the video. It will bring a smile to your face even if you don’t play live dealer blackjack.

If you have never played live dealer blackjack and after watching the video, you are so inclined we have  written a brief explanation on how you can get started.

Live Blackjack
When blackjack made its way online, it was instantly popular as players were able to play this classic game from the comfort of their homes. Along with classic blackjack games developers also created many variations.

As technology developed, live casinos were introduced at online casinos, which gave players the chance to play blackjack with live dealers on any device that has an Internet connection and a good display.

With live blackjack, a video of a real dealer is streamed to your device. This dealer will deal the cards as they would at a traditional casino. You will have the chance to chat to the live dealer, and as seen in the Peter Ness trolling video the dealers do interact with you.
With live dealer blackjack, players are given the opportunity to experience a real casino atmosphere without leaving their home. So, if you are interested in playing live dealer blackjack, then here is how to play.

How to Play Live Dealer Blackjack

  • Select the amount of money that you wish to bet. You will do this by selecting the correct number of virtual chips. The live dealer will be able to see what you are doing and the actions that you are taking, which allows them to react in real-time.
  • Once the bets have been made, the dealer will deal the cards to the players and to themselves.
  • The dealer will then ask each player what action they would like to take, which can be stand, hit, double down or split.
  • The dealer will then react and carry out any chosen actions.
  • Once, all decisions are made, the results are evaluated and any winnings are paid out. A new hand will then begin.It really is that simple. All you need to do now is come up with a catchy name.

Is It A Wall Or A River? Internet Debates Another Optical Illusion

(PCM) Everyone is wrapped up in yet another internet photo debate over whether or not this image of a picnic in Germany shows a wall or a river in the background. It was posted in a German Facebook group and the debate has commenced.

The internet folks love a good optical illusion, as you can recall both The Dress, The Underwater Or Jumping In and the Girl with the Missing Leg photos left us pretty baffled! Usually they end up being fairly easy to figure out, but this one is really getting to us!

We are kind of leaning towards a river because the wooden planks look like they could be part of a dock of some sort on the left hand side of the image, however the rest of the background really does resemble a wall.

What do you think? Let’s hope some super internet sleuths hop on this case quickly and let us know once and for all just what in the world we are looking at and in the meantime, can we hop on in there and join the party!
