Life in Quarantine
February 25, 2010 12:33 PM   Subscribe

Due to a serious form of tu­ber­cu­lo­sis which he contracted on a trip to South America Christiaan Van Vuuren (aka Fully Sick Rapper) has been quarantined in a Australian hospital room since January 18th. "This is starting to take it's toll on my mental stability, and this song is about the impact (or lack thereof) it has had so far."

Other videos he has produced while in hospital:
F You, I'm a Ukelele.

Leila, Leila, you're so much hotter than me.

I'm not sick, but I'm sick sick.

I'm confused about the dates. Jan 18? Jan 2? Jan 28?

Apparently he was admitted and put in quarantine last December. They let him out on January 2nd. The symptoms returned, as it was a more virulent form of TB than originally diagnosed. They put him back in quarantine on January 28th. where he remains. I garner this from his notes on the videos and from the videos themselves.

If & when they eventually release him, he should probably change his stage name.

We use Her Majesty's Non-Chronological Time here in Australia, yank.

There was a rapper called "Lil' 1/2 Dead", who died. Wikipedia had to send me a notice to stop changing all instances of his name to "Lil' 1/2 Dead, who is now fully dead".

It's not a sickie. It's a non-chronological Empire Day.

Have we learned nothing from C-Murder?

He goes by "C-Miller" now, comedically enough, since he realized that still calling yourself "C-Murder" while awaiting trial for murder was pretty dumb.

His videos are an interesting window into what its like to be bored out of your mind in a hospital

For correctness' sake, it was actually Lil' 1/2 Dead's brother, Big 1/2 Dead, who died. And it was a certain instance of the sentence "his brother Big 1/2 Dead, now deceased" or something like that that I kept changing to "fully dead". I generally frown on messing with Wikipedia, but it wasn't like I was subtly altering mathematical formulae (which people do, just to prove some imaginary point about Wikipedia) or something.

Not to bring seriousness, but I must admit, one of my more morbid thoughts has been, Exactly how much would this multi-week quarantine have cost him if he was American?
