I'm really sorry to hear about this. My condolences to his family.
I always enjoyed his brutal honesty. If I ever needed it, even on non-AMV things, he was willing to dish it out. He was one of the first guys I met here at the Org, in the old AIM chat. Our chats dwindled over time as I slipped from the community. I'm sad to say I only ever met the guy once, at SakuraCon 2003, my first convention. Him, me, Wuwu, Dannywilson and Zerophite just meandered around, with him and DW ragging on just about everything and everyone we came across. Looking back, it's a fun memory.
Here's to you, man.
