JP Barlow was the kind of cat who convinced me that I didn't need to be stuck in any pigeonholes that were not of my own devising.
He told me through his words and works that I could be a weirdo without concern for those who didn't understand me.
He gave that gift to me and to multitudes and for that he will always be a major voice ringing in my soul.
Roll on merrily, old man, and thanks for the trip.
all I can remember is being a kid and finding out about the EFF, and thinking, "that needed doing"
not everybody who sees a thing that needs doing will do it, I already knew that
so I was glad someone was
I love that the same droog to start the EFF also introduced the Dead to Dr. Leary.
He's been like a Paul Bunyan of my lifetime.
