Bryan Paul, do you remember me? I JUST found out that Nick died. I'm in my apartment in Bellingham. I was having a shitty night thinking about how lonely my life is and comparing my solitude to the richness of familial intimacy that I used to feel with my road dogs; the chief of those, of course, was always and always will be Nick. Who was SUCH an unlikely friend for the airy fairy hippy girl I was, but my best friend on the road. It's been two years since I've seen him. He visited and stayed with me shortly after my son was born. I'm glad he got to meet him, but I'm so fucking sad he won't ever see us again. I just finished writing him an email tonight about how much I miss him, and about a song a wrote when I thought he died before because of that rumor a couple of years ago. In my email I pleaded him to contact me. It's been so long since he wrote me back. Because he's fucking dead! It all makes sense now. So I sent the email, and then I googled Nick Weldon. Nothing, some UK rock star ass hole. So, I hesitate, and I google Nick Weldon obituary. And holy fucking shit.

My son is asking me if I'm crying for real. If I need a hug. I'd love to chat about this Bryan Paul. I just joined this site just now so I could write this. I don't know how to use it. But if there's some way to send a private message, let me know and I'll send you my #. You have a place in Bellingham.
Love,
Taylor

Ya know what's the most fucked up thing about this? You found out, or at least posted this, on Christmas.
RIP Nick

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $110.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
