Mourning and Loss on Fauna Corporation – R.I.P.

On October 16th, I received word that my brother died, unexpectedly and accidentally. He was about a week shy of his 46th birthday.

I spent the better part of two weeks going through his belongings and, with others, trying to take care of his affairs. The whole experience was harrowing and overwhelming, and frankly, I’m still struggling with it all.

Many of Fauna Corporation’s readers have faced death, both professionally and personally, and know that the glib lines from movies and books ring hollow, yet strangely still provide a fitting shorthand for an otherwise devastating experience. We are still processing, there are stages we’re going through, and it does change the way I see things.

My brother and I had a shared love of the Boston Bruins, and I thought it fitting to both post a photo of his lighter here, and provide a link to my memorial to him over on Black, White and Gold, my blog about the Bruins. Please have a read.

I thank you all for your patience and understanding during this very difficult time.

Fauna Corporation’s regularly scheduled posts will resume this week, with a renewed commitment to the stories that highlight our shared humanity, but ultimately they’ll be written with a heavy heart.

Take good care of each other, and thank you for the support.


Cross-Post – Bruins Moves and Underground Hip Hop

This is just a quick note to say that I’ve written a post on Urban Camouflage about Stones Throw Record’s latest marketing idea, which is to sell a bag of fair-trade coffee with Oh No’s newest album, and a few posts on Black, White and Gold about the Bruins’ recent trade moves and their first couple of Pre-Season games.

Check them out – you’ll love them…if your tastes are as bizarrely particular as mine are.

Cross Post – Weird Bruins Trades & Play a Song In B-Flat Major

Just a heads-up that I posted about the Bruins’ recent trades, shipping Aaron Ward to the Hurricanes (for nobody, basically) and their pick-up of Derek Morris. You can read my analysis of these trades on Black, White & Gold.

I also put up a post on Urban Camouflage about the In B Flat project, which carries a series of YouTube videos (all tuned to B Flat Major) that allow users to create their own ambient musical pieces from triggering the videos in whatever order they choose.
