bye bye, blown eye

rob smith is gone? i don't believe it.

we weren't close but we did have a few run-ins. like all, i read rob in the beginning. he actually encouraged me to leave my first comment. back then i would only communicate via email cause it gave me the willies to have my words frozen in cyber space for eternity. not to mention i had a healthy sense of self-preservation, what mutant trolls rob had, they paralized me.

all in all, rob was simply good peeps. rough around the edges, as we all have been found to be. but sweet, that man could be so sweet. you would smile at him all the while waiting for the acidman to show. luckily, i never met him in person.

rob more than anyone appreciated the birth of the blown eyeds. he loved that we incorporated a catfishism into our family crest (and it beat the hell out of calling ourselves chubbies.)

god rest your restless soul, rob. blown eyeds will remember you always.

I'm very sorry about the Chubby idea. What was I thinking? Well, about my dick, no doubt.
