No Updates

Well I recently had a death in the family so I haven't been updating this like I should. It's hard to justify looking for funny things to talk about, ranting about copyright, or much of anything when people you care about are deeply troubled. My grandmother, the sweetest woman in the world, lost her older sister this weekend. I don't have an older brother or sister, and I of course don't have enough years to have known anyone the amount of time my grandmother has. I know I was shocked and hurt when my good friend Asa shot himself before he had even turned 30 years old, when my uncle Orville passed and I had watched him starve himself to death in snapshots of hospital visits, the several times I came to school on Monday morning in high school and someone I'd known or had passed in the hall would never come back again, and sitting in the intensive care unit with my atheist bullshit self praying like a saint for my grandfather to pull through his sudden heart surgery. There's nothing to be done of course, people die and they get hurt and sometimes they just decide to leave. I don't know what I'm trying to say really. Treasure every moment you have with the people you love, let each day have at least a bit of joy in it no matter how dismal it seems. We really don't get a lot of time to do things here on Earth and even the loudest among us is very small and precious when compared to the enormous tide of humanity.
