  1. It feels strange being here again after so long, and saying goodbye to yet another 'friend.' The internet has allowed us to both grow more familiar and more i rony I am sure not lost on MM. Last night I posted a youtube of Eddie Vedder singing Bobbie Jean - as I recall, MM was among the legions of haters of this particular song, but Eddie's version felt even more poignant and emotion-laden than Bruce's version. And I figured that Mark would appreciate the, again, irony of knowing a song he disliked had become more meaningful because of his passing. I hadn't thought about MM, or GL, or even Bruce in a fair amount of time, yet seeing one post from a 'Laker that mentioned the initials MM threw me right back here, memories of the Rising tour and my first connection with fans...and I knew immediately who was meant by the initials MM. We never met, not that I remember, but he was a BIG personality, and I expect led a BIG life. He's burned into my memory cells, as PG would say. He'll never be gone as long as long as we this day, I cannot hear the year 1978 without thinking of him <3 And I hate to sound ghoulish, but I have reached that stage in my life when I am pondering my own mortality and assessing my future prospects - do we know what happened? Somehow, I find myself measuring my mortality against others' health-struggles...which is why I ask, a purely selfish question. This phase of life for me feels like a harvest of sorts, my friends being reaped and called 'home' (wherever that may be)...a fate that awaits each of us. Enjoy every sandwich. And Mark, rest well, my friend.
  2. Thank you so much for mentioning your book! It looks like it'll be extremely useful, precisely the kind of thing I'm digging towards. I've just bought a copy :)
