I can't really describe how this made me feel. It brought me down in a good way is probably the closest I can get. Hope you get better Roger, and if you hear anything about me, feel free to continue.

This one kinda made me cry. I don't know why, exactly, but it made me really, really sad. Like a goodbye. Like a requiem.

It did feel like a goodbye, and that part brought me down the most.

I feel bad for Pix, she never did anything worse than smoke a little shit.

My sins have all come back to roost, and they won't shut up.  It's like I have surround-sound in my head.

But you know what?   I had a pretty good fucking year.  I met Nigel, and she's better looking than her pictures, she's so fucking beautiful that it hurts your eyes.  And she's fucking SMART.  And she can make you laugh til you expel organs.

And you should really get yourself and Pix over to meet Richter.  He's from another fucking age, I swear to God.

I plan a trip to the states at some point, Richter is one of the Giants I must meet. Nigel and the PDXers would likely be well met when I do a trip to ALberta/ B.C. to see my family.

Nigel is a Goddess.  There's no real words to describe her.  She basically warped Tucson.

Mind you, she's crazy as a shithouse rat, but a Goddess all the same.

The first section absolutely grabbed me. And this is an awesome piece. And it worries me more than a little, mostly about you. I hope they figure all this shit out.

Heavy, moving, great.  Need to digest on that for a bit.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

That was heartbreaking. Whatever's going on with you, Roger, I hope that it works out. And if I can in the next couple of years, I'd really like to meet you Tucson guys in real life.

Anyway, that was a fantastic piece of writing, and if you've got anything to say about me, and I'd be honored to here it.

Pretty much this. I... okay, maybe my eyes leaked a little bit.

It thrills me that I met you Roger, and I hope you can come back to Toronto soon.  Our rampage will be epic.

Christ Roger this scared the hell out of me. I've re-read it 4 times now and it still makes me cry.  I never doubted you had this inside somewhere, I just well hell what the fuck you know?

I'm just a selfish bitch and I worry because you are my friend and those are few and far between for me.

And fuck I have no fucking idea what to say because I can't do a fucking thing.

Roger, this gave me that cold oh shit something bad is going to happen feeling.

It gave me that "Don't mix the new pills with the old pills and chase it with a bunch of shitty whiskey" kind of feeling.

It causes you to hear voices, puke a lot, spout prophecy, and terrorize the fat teabagger neighbor.

I shall avoid doing that in the future.  Mostly.
