Well Shit

One of the all time great bloggers is gone.

Rob Smith, of Gut Rumbles died yesterday morning. Rob was one of a kind. No holds barred, fuck 'em if they can't take the truth kind of guy. He'd make you laugh and piss you off in the same entry. Rob's was one of the first blogs I read with regularity, and one of the reasons I'm blogging today. His was a nice outpost in the 'new blog age' of fluffy, tee hee sort of blogs, as you could always count on him to make you think. He's had some rough times lately, but since I figured he'd be around for a long time. I didn't 'know' him, as in met him or talked to him, but when you read someone's blog every day, you get rather fond of them.

That really sucks. I'm going off to be sad today. I hope he's in a better place, with no cats, lots of good music, and great food. My sincerest condolences to his son, daughter, brother and grandmother.
