15 minutes past midnight and my whole day is RUINED already R.I.P. Mr. Khil, what a great guy
His music was actually good. RIP, wish I can attend his funeral.
Well that's a shame. I posted this in the last thread about him but I feel it's appropriate: The 2012 rendition (though I'm 99.9% certain it's just lipsync) of the song that made him internet famous. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PL8CD8PjVmA[/media] Pretty goddamn good for a 78 year old.
Well thats sad. When they did that interview after his song became popular again he seemed genuinely happy that people were enjoying it and came off as a really nice guy.
Well at least he got to see that his singing was loved by the entire world before he died. RIP.

That's the really sad thing to me, he never got to see that dream come to fruition. :(
Quite a shame to see him go, it really is.
Not only did I have to deal with the thought of having to put down my cat just five minutes ago, and that now she is fine, Mr. Trolololo dies? Day ruined :(
The internet is lesser with his loss.

Maybe it will now, as some kind of tribute. It would be a great gesture.
That sucks, like, really, he was so awesome... I mean, he gladly accepted his fame thrust upon him by the internet.
Whole night ruined. That man had real talent wih that incredible voice
Fuck
:( Why Khill?
RIP, an awesome man. :(
Hopefully he lived a good life
Now nobody can use this for a couple years without it being in bad taste.
It's rare to find talent like him. Voices you will never hear again from an age long gone
He was a great man. :(
D'aw :saddowns:
All i can say is I'm sorry I never could appreciate your music while you were still alive. RIP Mr. Trololo
People laugh at the trololo song, but his voice was actually incredible. Rest in peace Mr. Khil D:
Is there any other recordings of his music besides the "Trololo" song?

Mr. Khil, what a great guy[/QUOTE] really your day is ruined because some obscure russian singer you never heard of until "trololo" became a terrible meme, that ruined your day?
