You know...I hate to say it but I had mcm blocked. I had no idea it was him.... but I thought the posts were kind of off the wall. Not like Fly at all....

Had that user name blocked too as it was constant off the wall dumb ass shit.  I had no idea but hindsight has me thinking it was an extreme call for attention and help...

My reference to the username was not his latest, but his WSF one.  

 

I've never blocked anyone, but there was something weird about mcmxii's posts and while I knew it was him, something just seemed off.  I don't know how to describe it.  His posts had a more acerbic tone to them or something.  

 

My gut is telling me that it was self-induced and I just can't help but wonder if it's the kind of thing that Robin Williams said a long time ago about comedians doing this sort of thing.  How, all along, it's a cry for help, but everyone is laughing so no one notices...

 

Shit.

Saw this on FB. I only knew him as a username on a message board, but my condolences to those of you who knew him personally and called him friend. RIP

Aw man....

 

I hung out with him for a couple days - we stayed at Eddy and Lisa's.  It was a great time; he was full of laughs.

 

Christ, how sad.  :(

Ah no, I'm so sorry to hear this. Only interacted with him on the board a few times but he always seemed to be good-natured and especially good-humoured and that isn't particularly common, at least consistently, around here. A Richard Thompson fan too. What a shame.

Holy shit.

I always enjoyed his particular brand of humor.  I can't say I knew him outside of this space, though.

Wow...

I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.

When I heard that he was gone I felt a shadow cross my heart...

 

Goodbye Fly...  (there isn't an emoticon to represent my tears... :(  )

Damn - I figured that "MCMXXIX' was Fly, and to help keep his 'secret' I posted that Fly bit that big windshield in the sky, and was no longer around...yikes   :(

 

RIP- whowantsgum, aka, Fly

I mean no disrespect to the guy, and i don't want to seem insensitive by speculating.

 

But look at his name itself. Windshield Fly, versus how he died.    

 

Just thinking about it...

A Richard Thompson fan too.

 

Yes. He invited a few friends and me to a RT show several years ago (well, any peeps who were up for it and three of us went).

I enjoyed RT's wit and sarcasm.

Fly inadvertently got me in trouble at Army Basic Training by sending me an RT CD. That wasn't "wrong" (though we weren't allowed to listen to our own music at all) but the drill sergeants opened the package and played the CD amongst themselves. The last track is very weird and involves pre-emptively doing evil to your neighbors. It is called Psycho Street.

That Sunday, during the only couple of hours all week that we soldiers were allowed a little piece to write letters home, read or even just snooze, they locked us in a room and put that track on repeat FULL BLAST. I think it played around 20 times. Oh, and they announced it was my treat.

By the end of that couple of hours half my company loved me and half hated my guts. I wasn't sure which half I belonged to...

This is a bitter pill to swallow. Just trying to process how tragic and senseless this is to hear. Although I never met him personally either, more times than not his posts brought me smiles. I know my CP friends in Cali will take this the hardest and I feel for you guys ! His presence will be missed by all . RIP Fly !

Wishes of peace for all those mourning this loss
