  • Anyone remember GIR Unit/Papa Grizzly (Mark)?

    He was my favourite lefty here. Real funny guy, didn't take anything too seriously. We used to PM each other every day and laugh about everyone. We'd challenge each other to do stupid sh-- on the forum. We'd stage big forum fights and then laugh about it in PMs. He had a super quick wit.

    It was sad that he died.

    Man, that must almost be about 9 years ago he died. Those days seem so long ago now. It was such a different forum then. Much more fun, but I guess there's something to the small local bar type group we have now as opposed to that busy insane clusterf---.

    I remember. Didn't have much affinity but also didn't hate the guy. Others fit in the same general category for me, but on different levels.

    Since we're talking about ghosts and it's Halloween season I'll mention Terry Allen Hall and some guy from Scotland who called himself Gallus. It still gives one pause to wonder how many of the forum's stalwarts may have left for one reason but will never return due to their being discorporate. I see this as an argument in favor of our being civil in our comportment toward others because you just never know when it's going to happen. But happen, it will.

      I know TAH died, but do you think Gallus died?


      There is definitely less animosity here than there used to be. There's no one here that I think "I would hate that guy in real life", politics aside. That wasn't always the case.

      Speaking of Gallus ...

        Used to argue with Mark about bass fishing, of all things. He lived in a part of Missouri where I used to live, we'd fished some of the same spots. Talked a bit on the phone. I was sad when he took sick and died.

        TAH and I were quite friendly. He died while I was permabanned, it was a shock when I found out. Never heard what took him, always wondered.

        Terry was my bud, met him when we were 15 or so. Gigged occasionally over the years. Last time I saw him he came by the place I worked I took him out to lunch for Mexican food.

          No kiddin'! Tom, I would've really liked to have met him. We spoke on the 'phone several times. He was a weirdo and a whacko and I liked him quite a lot. He did what he wanted to do the way he wanted to do it and didn't give much of a rip what anyone thought about it. Accepted the consequences yet was still compassionate. His high squeaky speaking voice was entirely different from his singing voice!

          Ninja of Love---that takes me back to my earliest days on HC.

            Terry was an amateur herpetologist when I met him. His living room was full of glass aquariums he stocked with snakes frogs and lizards.

            Musically he was definitely from the Americana School; Folk Music, Appalachian music, fiddle tunes that sort of thing.

          Mark and I became pretty good friends...we used to talk on the phone once or so a week. I used to send him my copies of Vintage Guitar cause he couldn't find them where he lived.

            Gotta pour one out for Sydfan too. One o' them universally beloved types.



            While she's talking, I'll use my mind to think of other things. She can't stop my mind!

              I remember TAH, but not the others. I honestly can't remember much about his post or what his demeanor was. seems like I remember his posting a video of a solo performance.

                Sydfan, he my brudda. Son of a BUCK!

                Visited me on his ancient Gold Wing in JUL06. Brought me a Glenlivit gift set because I can't stand scotch. Still got the glasses.

                Refused to refrigerate his ketchup, even though I spoke to Heinz on the 'phone and they said yes, refrigerate it. Stubborn bastige. Had a problem with ketchup on hot dogs, too. Don't know why I bothered with him.

                I miss Larry. Yes, I do.

                  TAH was always fighting with Hoddy. Kind of like guido and I, but I don't think they really liked each other.

                  I found TAH to be a little self righteous, but I know a number of people here liked him.
