It is "stickied" and will remain so.

I am glad that you liked the tribute.

I think that's a very fitting tribute, P.


I will be having a drink in Rochester UK tomorrow in memory of Tony. From my Rochester to yours, you will be very much missed. Fly on, cause Mayhem and see you on the other side for a fuckton of booze and adverbs.

S'ti th'laktra.

I know that I felt this way upon hearing the very sad news.

One for me, one for Mayhem. I'm on my way to the Island, where'll I'll pick up a conch shell, hold it to my ear and hear Tony's voice calling me "doll" one last time.

Cheers, drunkards. You're an amazing bunch of people, and I love you guys.

Agree.

Martha and I are thinking about donating to Lollypop Farm in his honor.
do. i'm going to. i wanted to attend the mass but i would have to leave my house at 2:30 in the morning and that i can not safely do. i'm donating instead.
Martha just donated to Lollypop Farm by the Intertrons. Drinking Dripping Spring Vodka tonight. Same stuff we sent Tony one HBE.

The intertrons are a weird beast. Here Martha and I in Buda TX, totally bummed out about a Dude that we have never met in person that live in NY. Talked to him on the phone, PMs, and Facebook. Never met him in person. I am Sad.

I think he would be cool with us getting Drunk and work some Happy into our lives right now.

Cheers to Mayhem and the rest of you Freaks in my Intertron world!

That's what I call Drunkard justice. I hate prisses like that. They're mincing their way through life when they should be marching. ~fkr.

in response to what screw just said;
more cons, invasions and meet-ups should be had amongst us. be we nearby or far reaching. i have had the privilege to meet some wonderful, kind, awesome people here. tony may have been the first in that group, chronologically and in my heart, but i have met some great folks.
let's keep this ball rolling.
for them.
for us.
for as long as we're able.
oh yeah.
it's all good in the woods, nobody hears me when i scream.

I keep coming here to see all the great tributes. Yes, they make me emotional. I don't care. Tony was just one of those guys who got along with everyone. We should all hope to be so warmly remembered when our time comes.

Frank, that tribute was awesome. That's how I'll believe it happened.

I made chili today and it was the best I've ever made. Maybe top 5 I've ever had. I'm convinced that Tony had a hand in it. At least I hope it was his hand.

Tomorrow I'll be rooting for Tony's Bills versus my Steelers. One time, Tony. But fuck the Yankees still.
I'll miss you, pallie.

I'll pay my respects, no better way than staying drunk I suppose.
Drank Beam last night for I did not know his favorite drink.

On Facebook, someone posted a picture of the Old Toad's board, which stated Eagle Rare was his drink of choice. I shall be getting some in his honor.
