One of my "mentors" here in the blogosphere is gone, and I feel the need to at least give a moment to remember him, and let his family and friends know that I'm thinking of them during this time.
The Nemesing One passed away this last Monday, and I'm still in a bit of shock over the whole thing.
I liked showing up at his site each morning to find some biting and slightly bitter commentary about his view of the world today.
His take on things like social reform, the economy, family life, and religion all centered around one thing: His sex life. As long as he was getting sex, he was happy with how things were. If not? Well, then everything could go to hell, and he was more than willing to tell you how to get there.
I hope that I'll be able to keep his memory fresh in my mind, and maybe channel his sarcasm and wit every once in a while when posting something that really irritates me.
I don't know if I'll have his style, or ability to make up words and phrases for my intent, but at least I'll be able to blame him for the IDEA of ranting about things, and calling stuff white or black, and not painting everything gray.
You'll be missed TNO.
Head over to his site, and pay your respects if you will.
I'll return you to your regularly scheduled blog tomorrow.
