Thanks for thinking me.

Yeah, I've already been through my grieving process when he first told me. In a way I feel lucky because I was able to tell him how much he meant to me before he went. I've caught up with the thread, I'm really glad to hear how at peace he was at the end.

You have no idea how much I hate you right now.I didn't get to-

For everybody else, hi. You probably don't know me, but this is The Thread. I'm an avid MMA fan, though, and also cooly casual with the rasslin, mostly thanks to Skinty.

But the hate- he didn't tell me, and that fits with the sort of person he was: rarely a problem, and never a pain; mostly a witty respite for weary and cynical souls. He always had the punchline or the quip to put things in perspective. Yet as for his own problems, he had to be pressed and pressed, and even then, he'd admit only the smallest things, and even then, only grudgingly.

I loved him because everything about him was joy. His words were funny. His thoughts were true. His interests were intriguing, and he was always good for an amazing game recommend or two, or five, or- well, he really liked games, okay? As long as Steam is a thing, I'll scroll down the list and see titles I love, thanks to his goading.

Skinty tuned me into Prison Architect in 2014. Skinty had me download the book of the downfall of WCW. Skinty showed me Misfits and The Wire. Skinty wrote some of the best short fiction I've ever read.

Skinty was a loving legend, and cancer has robbed the world of what he was capable of.
