remembering Jimi

Some of you may remember Jimi C, who was a regular here for a while. Sad to report that he died peacefully yesterday after a long fight with cancer, during which he remained brave and good humoured to the end. I know his very European ironic and offbeat style was sometimes misunderstood by some here, but he was a dear sweet funny man who will be greatly missed. Tiger Lilly also formerly of this place) got to visit Jimi in England in July, which meant a lot to both of them. Sad.

Move me brightly

Heres to Jerry your music continues to soothe my soul, brings tears to my eyes and makes me happy all in one crazy glorious way that nothing else can do. Such a long long time to be gone and a short time to be there.

Loved ones

We can make a prayer pillow using our lost loved ones clothes. We can design it from our own creativity and can place a front pocket to keep a notebook and our favorite pen. It will give us some warm feelings when our arms long to hold our loved ones.

The Young Ones...

Although this was only one of many shows Rik graced, it was one of my all time favorite comedies. Rik Mayall as Rik and Ade Edmondson as Vyvyan the violent punker were over the top.

and following in that same vein:

"There were times when Rik and I were writing and we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard."

-Ade Edmondson

Bigger than Hitler, Better than Christ

So sad to hear that Rik Mayall died yesterday morning.
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the world's finest comedians. To witness him on screen or on stage at full throttle was truly something special. "Fireball creativity" is absolutely right.

Commenting after his accident which left him in a coma for five days -

"I beat Jesus Christ," he said. "He was dead for three days at Easter. When I crashed it was the day before Good Friday, Crap Thursday, and I was technically dead until Easter Monday - that's five days ... beat him 5-3."

The world burns less brightly today.

a song flung up to Heaven

In memory of Maya Angelou, thank you, you will be at the top of my summer reading list. Peace to all.

Hoping love would not forsake the days that lie between.

Today I found out my long time friend from birth, my brother Jimmy is defiantly leaving us but God has given him sometime to be with the ones he loves. Today he was awake, ornery, and sweet as ever.IDK how he does it but his nurse, the female Chaplin, all hot! LOL!! We had lunch together and when I was leaving he got me to sneak a cig to him. Told him "as long as you don't lite it." He whispered "Hey Tam! I'm going to smoke it when I go outside soon." Still apart of me that would not doubt it. Then I looked at his last days with the TV turned on to channel he didn't prob. pic and ran out and bought one of the last of 2 CD players at Fred Meyers with big headphones so they won't slip off his head. NOW they have him partially restraint Silly. Got him the new Willie, Bonnie Rait, and the lost Cash tapes. Also thru in blues. Ozzy!. and of coarse some GD. (~);-) I would always play them when he wasn't looking and he would always say "Hey! Who is this? These guys are good!".Just going to enjoy him while I can. All his nieces who I baby sat came and flew up to his sisters house to be closer to him so I will get to see them again. Thanx all for the support! I am glad to say I made it thru with no cops called. No harm to myself or others. Well a little ding on my trunk but Hey!, something had to give!

My Friend Cactus

Anyone remember Cactus. He played guitar and mandolin . He toured in the 90s and was young, maybe 18 in '90 he is not in Phish or Granola Funk(lots of people direct me that way) ...
