Beddy's dead!?
WTF? Forgive me if there's already a thread about this, but I'm reading R.I.P. messages on his Facebook timeline, and if it's a cruel hoax, there are an awful lot of people in on it.

I can't believe this.

I always thought I'd meet him in person some day.

No. Can't be. I deny this.

We will always have Loudoun and radishes. I am incredibly, deeply saddened.

Sad news.

Is anyone here registered on macstack? Is there anyone there who. Might want to know?

RE: Beddy's dead!?
Yeah, I alerted the Macstack crowd.


I'm taking this kinda rough, apparently. This morning I stayed in bed late and had multiple dreams about Beddy's death. Some quite disturbing.

Does anyone know the cause? I'm curious, of course, but I know it's none of my beeswax.

I think it was some sort of illness.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Of course he has a smashingly attractive obituary picture.  A life well played, sir, right through to the end.

No sense in keeping secrets.

David was one of the few people that I have met up with from the Forums. I wish I had done so more often, but I am certain many people are feeling a similar way. I do not have a Facebook account, so I don't know the information that is out there. Lately the only way I know he was still bopping around was from his twitter account which I followed: https://twitter.com/DavidHSowards

Prior to that, my internet skills had already led me to learn plenty more about bedstuy, but I kept it in confidence, both from him, since he chose to keep it compartmentalized, and from anyone else on the forums, because it's just the decent thing to do. He was HIV+, and if what folks are saying on his other forum is true, then it seems that he may have taken his own life.

He was a true joy. From submitting that obnoxious Loleatta Holloway song for one of the samplers that I still have in my playlist, to being able to make him laugh THAT ONE TIME when I created that map of bedstuy's New York, to his high class need for everything to be artesian. He will certainly live on in my memories, and in my heart, and also in Max R's Yelp review of Clubhouse54.

This is wrenching, I had no idea.

I remember talking via facebooks with him during the whole -- debacle of '11, and had really only been following his gratuitous radish jibes since then.

Giggle I didn't realize that the S word was censored.

I was thinking about him the other day and how long it had been since I'd seen him post one of his beddy comments.
Very sad news.

I'm really sad, but I appreciate you sharing with us, Smapdi. I'm really glad you met him and had the chance to get to know him a bit outside the forums.

I can't believe this. How very sad.
There is no dark side of the moon, really…matter of fact, it's all dark.
