RIP Andreas

Oh Andreas , I am going to miss you so much. The world is an emptier place without you. We shared so much, good, bad and in between.

We did so much! From going to Disney World so I could ride the tea cups, to shows all over. Das House, and all our silliness, in someways we were all learning to be adults. We drove to Rhode Island to see a noise show, Florida to see Funker Vogt, North Carolina to see Einstürzende Neubauten. We went to so many shows. We went to raves, dingy clubs, outdoor shows, shows at a horse park even!

We knew each other from 1996, your jittery self looking for Legendary Pink Dots stuff in @waxnfacts We stayed friends, till we dated and then after that stayed friends. I remember so clearly the night you met Jessica and how on cloud 9 you were.

We kept up our traditions, trivia night, hanging out. You correcting my pronunciation of espresso (I say eXpresso), I watched all of Twins Peaks with you guys. We all went on vacation together. The annual pumpkin carving, corn mazes and my first taste of s’mores. The birth of your adorable children. So many wonderful memories.

I loved you so dearly, my dearest friend I am going to miss you with all my heart.

Please Rest at Peace,

“Weeping like the ghost of winter, we watch our tears
Kiss ash and turn to steam. We walk on hot coals
Where a stream meandered. Tarred and tanned. We
Flex and count the tumours on our hands–spreading
Swiftly now. For this, we waited just a lifetime
Sun blessed mirror shaded mad dogs. Blow a kiss we’ll
All fall over. Hunting the oasis but there’s only cola-
Sensurround. A technicolour thrill … it costs a fortune
So it must be real. For just a little sip, we’ll
Keep waiting (just a lifetime.)
And some of us work underground. We dug a hole and
Settled down. We waited for the gentle sound of steady
Rain to soak the ground and raattle on our ventilator
Guess the time we sat there waiting. Yes, you
Guessed! We waited just a lifetime
And dragons walked the earth again; parrafin was free
A fire-eater went insane and torched the final tree
And one fine say the planet crumbled, just cos
Someone sneezed. For this, we waited just a lifetime”
