Every now and again a user pops up on SnapMyLife and makes an immediate impact. Over the past few weeks we noticed little blips in our usual numbers and thought, what could have caused this? Google spider, reporting error, random uber-YouTuber? If you guessed the latter, congratulations. It is YouTube sensation Supermac18! Follow him on our site Supermac18 or on Twitter @Supermac18

Over the course of the past 30 days the entertainment industry has lost a great number of familiar faces.
We lost the long estranged “King of Pop” Michael Jackson, the quintessential “70’s pin-up” girl Farrah Fawcett, the co-host of Late Night Ed McMahon, the “Kung-Fu” master David Carradine, and “Mr. Oxyclean” Billy Mays.
Between this and the rain/heat waves gripping the nation, June has been a trying month here in the States. However, just as they always do, the members of the SnapMyLife community have found solace and comfort in one another. Sending in commemorative photos of their lost celebrity heroes and discussing the events currently effecting their daily lives, our users have once again proven the power of a great community.
Here’s to a bright – sunny – tragedy free – July!
P.S. Be sure to click on the profile images above to view user tributes to our lost icons.
