All Hail Eris!

(that's it from Bob's bedside at his fnord by the sea)

RAW Memorial February 2007
date to be announced


Wow, it happened. I can't say I'm surprised but damn if I don't feel this. I've learned so much from this man in his writings, which I'm still to this day working on reading every single one.

A hero has fallen, and I don't know how to feel. Perhaps its Bob's last words posted to his blog the day before he died that make it so difficult to be sad.

"Various medical authorities swarm in and out of here predicting I have between two days and two months to live. I think they are guessing. I remain cheerful and unimpressed. I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying."

"Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd."

RAW


All I know is that I will do everything in my power to attend his memorial. It almost seems like my MO lately to attend these things.

If you've never picked up one of his books, and have no idea why I'm so torn up about this, go to amazon.com and buy a copy of "The Illuminatus! Trilogy"

Then, read it. If you like it, read anything hes ever written, and you'll like that too.

I can thank this man for moving the circuits in my brain every time I read one of his books, thus reshaping my world view and eventually, reaffirming it. When I first picked up illuminatus I was a young punk rocker socialist, and now I'm one of those "radical individualist libertarians" who reads books on Cabala, Philosophy, Psychology, Politics, Taoism, Physics, Religion, and Literature from the likes of Pound, Yeats, Joyce, and many others he's memed out in his books, blogs, and even film!

So, my plan, lets make history remember this man. Anyone in?
