One week from today is the memorial for Steve. My hope/plan is this be a celebration of his life. The theme is "Jazz Funeral" ish, or as ish as I can make it. It will be here at the house trig (re)built.

I would LOVE to know your favorite tr ig saying, trigism, glimpse into the man known as tr ig, stories and the like that I can read aloud or at least print out. Much appreciation.

Oh that made sense, there was a thought meant to tie the 2 sentences together that missed the keyboard.

Particularly if anyone is around taking care of you, stay on autopilot.

Jenny, I can't even imagine.

You are in my thoughts too all this week.

I got to know Steve on Open.  There was much meta talk about the feed, if I'm not mistaken.  Also there were some of the older members who were being asshats and trying too hard to create rules for the newer members and in general hold court and dominate the site, which they had for years.

Anyway some of us were not liking this because it was creating bad feelings and dust ups galore.  I don't recall who called someone a fuckmuppet, but that word became a sort of rallying cry.  Fuckmuppetry!  

For all I know it might have been Jeff or Steve that coined the phrase now that I think about it.

anyway, these videos kind of illustrate one of the qualities Steve had - the wacky way he might use to touch on serious (or quasi serious) (or not in the least serious) shit.  There are others.  And it's funny but in the last year I stumbled on them.  I'll keep looking.  

and finally this.  not funny.  not profound.  just very very dear.:

FM Thanks so much for the cover of Illegal Smile, one of my favorites from John Prine.  Appropriate that trig liked it too.

Beautiful, Monkey.

tr ig, what, no lights near the couch?? (he would not mind me asking this question).

Thank you also for your explanation of the origins of fuckmuppets. I was never briefed on that–it was a thing that existed but I never knew how, or if I'd been labeled as one. Whoever believed that Open Salon was too good for tr ig, nana, and you, well, they missed out on something quite amazing, didn’t they?

 Thank you Thank you Thank you

I'd never heard Tr ig talk before. One of the characteristics of knowing people through the written (typed) word is we don't know what each other sound like. I've met four people in person that I know through blogging:

Jon

Lezlie

Rob Wittmann

The Good Daughter

I've heard Ron's voice on the phone 

And I've seen video of Lorianne speaking, off camera.

I don't have a clue what anyone else sounds like. I might be leaving someone out in terms of video. I've heard Zanelle play a tin whistle I think but I don't remember if the video included speech. 

Sometimes that contains surprises. When Lezlie met me,  I think she was struck by how much I talk like I write.
