Announcement

The family of Lohcifer is sad to announce his sudden passing. During this difficult time, kindly allow the family privacy to mourn. Funeral details will be announced on this site as well as in the media shortly.

Nah, I’m alive and kicking, that was just a stupid April Fool’s joke.

Hello, unless you’ve been hibernating in a cave, today is April Fool’s Day.

Seriously, everything is copacetic.

All is well.

I’m far from dead.

But this is definitely not the first time such a stupid, if cruel joke has been played.

In mid-February, it was announced that former Taiwanese crooner and heartthrob Liu Wen-cheng has died in November last year at the age of 70.

Liu sang lots of catchy songs with funny lyrics and had a unique voice.

In the days of my youth, his songs The Promise and The Drizzle in March were top Mandopop hits.

Lots of fans, young and old, were mourning the popstar’s death when they learned of the announcement.

Two days later, it was declared that it was all a prank.

Liu’s former agent Hsia Yu-shun said he made the false announcement to help protect Liu from people hoping that he would make a return and launch a tour.

He said some people have offered up to NT$2 billion (US$66.05 million) for Liu to hold a 50-concert tour in China but Liu wasn’t in the fucking mood to do it so Hsia faked his death.

Hsia Yu-shun, that’s the sperm that won?

What a moron!

Hsia’s joke is as stupid as that theory about Jewish space lasers.

But honestly, it sounds like a real cock and bull story to me and Liu himself could be complicit in this; announcement of his death led to tens of thousands of his fans playing his songs again.

His songs hit the charts again.

Think royalty payments, my friend.

He became popular again.

Maybe that was just what he needed at age 70.

But he could never be trusted again.

His integrity is now zero.

He’s as believable as Bill Clinton (“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky” or that fat lump of a pig next door, Najib of 1MDB fame.

Faking a death is one of the most deplorable things a person can do.
