godix passed away today

Because this affects a lot of people (especially the AMV Iron Chef): godix passed away today: http://nekoneko.livejournal.com/237927.html

I considered him a good friend and a damned talented and funny editor.

Rest in peace, old friend. :cry: :cry:

Like you, like everyone we really didn't want to believe it. Many of us didn't believe it and a small part of me still expects him to show up in his old way laughing and telling us all we've been trolled. I'm really really going to miss that magnificent bastard.

:(

He was talking to me a couple days ago about potentially being absent for a few days due to hospital visits. I told him to take care of himself and sent my well wishes... This is extremely saddening.

My thoughts are with his friends and family. You will be missed.

Never thought I'd have to return the favour... for real :(

Actually I can't even muster the sense of humour to write him a send-off he would've approved of. This is just too sad. He was one of the people I talked to most online in general, and by far the most on #amv specifically. Despite his public persona, he was one of the best people you could have as friend on the .org, and one of the most interesting people to talk to. The response I'm seeing to the news only proves the impact he's had around here.

Shame he never got "most helpful". It's difficult to see his helpfulness objectively, but honestly, he deserved it.

It's always sad when someone in the community passes away and this is no different. Godix was one of the most entertaining people for me on the org. He knew when to troll and he knew when to be serious and he ultimately didn't give a damn what people thought of him, and I respect him for that. Definitely one of the most vibrant and explosive personalities on the org, you will be missed.

My thoughts go out to his friends and family.

I didn't get to know him as well as everybody else on here, but I enjoyed what few times I did chat with him on the irc.

The Org won't be the same now that he's gone, but we'll never forget him.

He and I talked quite a bit on the IRC channel, trading betas once in a while. I was hoping that he might've been coming out to AWA this year so I could meet him after all these years... but now, I never will.

To a great creator and a person who brought a nice dash of humor (and occasional insanity) to the AMV community, RIP. You will be greatly missed. :(

I did the segment @ 14:13, "Re-Entry and Splashdown". I did it as an homage to Physics Sucks.

RIP Bob. Any time I went on IRC in the past few years, it was to chat with you. We didn't always agree on things, but we could always agree to disagree. I remember you once joked that if we ever met in real life, I'd beat the ever loving shit out of you. I'm sorry I won't get the chance to show you wrong.

Well, we all kinda feel that godix wouldn't want us to cry or be sad. Knowing him I bet he'd want us to make sick jokes at his expense. In IRC we were thinking we if we wanted to mourn him the way he would want us to we could do it here, that way places like his his wife's facebook won't have troll-esque comments where the only person who would truly understand is is wife.

That being said, it looks like I'll pick up the torch and make a goats video for awa pro this year. Or will I? I'd laugh if a dozen people do that this year, really I would.

I didn't really know him but it's still something extremely sad. My condolences to his friends and family especially his wife. Rest in peace God the ninth.

I remember when I first started hanging out in #AMV, godix was definitely one of the first few people who made a lasting impression on me, whether it from his sarcasm or his 'dontgiveafuck' attitude when it came to many, many things. It took me a while to "get", but I really enjoyed talking to him, getting help on videos, or hearing his hilarious stories about shit done on the forums.

You will be missed greatly =(
