Adric Antfarm – Haunting Hammy From Beyond The Grave!

In what I can only imagine is a development that would make Adric piss himself laughing, Hammy has posted a piece about his death only to see it turn into a “Hammy is teh ebil!” flame war. Adric would have loved that – not the fact that the Hamster posted about his death, which would have pissed him of royally, but that people managed to get their “FUCK OFF AND DIE!” posts to stick in a place he himself found his comments more often than not wiped from.

An Aside…
Y’know, even though I don’t read it anymore, I really do wish Ham wouldn’t post Blue Mars posts in his SL blog – but I guess it’s his blog so it’s his choice… which leads me nicely back to the start of this sentence 🙂 Anyhoo, back to the main event…

Follow the fun!

There seems to be another in the endless spats between Prok & Crap with Adric & Josue… all amusing stuff from the outside so I thought you’d like a read 🙂

Goodbye Cousin Adric

The man behind the avatar Adric Antfarm, died suddenly last weekend and I, like many others, will the miss him greatly. There is a post on his blog from his RL friend: http://www.adric.us/2010/09/sad-on-the-prim/

Filthy, funny, clever, vile and caring Adric was someone I never thought I’d like and found I loved. Sometimes the targets for his anger or amusement made me wince, but invariably the core of what he said was true. Adric didn’t just hold up a mirror to all of our hypocrisies, but he smacked us in the face with it and called us tossers. Or fucking dickwad tossers to be more precise. Anyone who knows me knows I like swearing, and Adric swore like a navvy with his cock trapped in a door.

Another great thing about Adric was his ability to piss Prok AND Hamlet off at the same time. Neither knew what to do with him and for that alone he should be knighted. In fact the only people of note in the top SL bloggers who got him were Dale & Crap, which was a tribute to Crap considering how much Adric took the piss out of the Second Lie (anti-)gestalt on Twitter.

His blog had a hardcore of regular readers and commenters and I’d like to think I was in that number. To think I’ll never see his entry in my Google Reader go black with unread goodies again makes me very, very sad.

I don’t believe in god, heaven or anything after we die, but that doesn’t stop me smiling to think right now he’s clogging up the Almighty’s free-wifi with porn and endless YouTubes of idiots fighting on live TV or public transport.

I’m raising my cup of tea (if it helps, it’s strong tea) to you cousin Antfarm, you part Welsh, part Native American, all American bobby dazzler!

I’ll miss you, mate.

As ever, timezone differences meant I never really got to meet Adric in SL – he did come to the last season of The Show Must Go On and I snapped these shots of the handsome bastard 😉

Will everyone (except Adric and Osprey) please stop talking about Emerald as it’s fucking dull. Cheers.

ARGH! In the end I couldn’t get back in so I buggered off to watch telly & brood. I did manage to take some shots before I exited the field stage left – here are a selection but there are lots more in the Bay City Flickr Group. Also check out there folks for their far better (and longer) experiences: Marianne, Osprey & Adric. And a big old TY to Mari & her Bay City/Nova Albion friends for arranging such a fun event!
