Trivia for the day: THE Dexter Gordon was godfather to Lars Ulrich.
Gordon befriended Lars' father and family while living in Denmark

Sure That'd be great! You should probably let us know when you're free.

(Because hank obviously checks in at the blog occasionally) Fuck Sean O'Neil and FUCK snarky internet humor! seriously, tosser? is rollins really to be lined up next to gene simmons now? should RW be lauded for his decision? what people like sean o'neil don't understand, or anyone with internet brain really, is that Henry was not sharing an opinion. he was actually doing something. no stranger to depression and the slippery slope(to say the least) it creates, henry was kind of downloading one more voice, to anyone within his ear/eye shot, that says, "Under NO circumstances is that a viable option! this is what it is to void one's self--I will now respect your decision and void your presence as a person." Maybe somewhere in the pit of that personal hell only recognizable to the individual beholding it--there will be that voice stating it straight out and maybe someone will pause to think just for a few seconds which is all it takes to "void" a horrific eternal decision. what else can he hope to do. maybe have a weekly radio show--the best in the country? check!!!

Fuck the national discussion on this topic every time a household name does this. there is one thing to be said at that moment: Under NO circumstances is that a viable option!

There are plenty of occasions that are golden opportunities to caricaturize henry rollins. I have done so in the past and I brazenly predict that I will in the future. now is certainly not one of them. seriously, fuck you sean o'neil you are inches from the world of telling everyone that "Kim K" was spotted at a restaurant with a pink thong hanging out. and FUCK the weak snarky facsmile that is internet humor. the one and only humor that is weaker, dumber and more insufferable than family guy humor. and ps, i agree whole heartedly: when you decide to have a child, you have waived yr right to void yr self.

I couldn't agree more, Tim.

I've seen how many headlines about Henry "shaming" Robin Williams. He did no such thing. When I see the words "shaming" or "triggers" I now just think "bullshit".

Ive been suicidal at different point in my life for over 20 fuckin years. "Fuck Suicide" is the healthiest mantra I could ever possibly have.

Henry is 100% right. When you're in the grips of depression, you have to get up, get out, and get moving. Do something. No matter how seemingly insignificant it is at the time.

What, we should all hold hands and mope together, because anything else is insensitive? Please.

And there are people I know for whom depression isn't even a struggle, they simply have to be on pills forever, just like having a heart condition. Big fucking deal. That's fine. Suicide isn't an option for them, either.

I am an adult with real responsibilities. I have people that I want to stay alive for. But I also have my own hopes, dreams, and things I want to achieve.

"Fuck Suicide" will get me there, through my darkest moments, and has.

This is what Henry wrote to Mark Prindle the day after Mark tried killing himself a few years ago

Mark, you can't kill yourself no matter how bad you feel. I know those kind of break ups make you feel that nothing is worth doing. It may feel like that for quite some time. You need to work against it to work past it. Perhaps you have a gym membership, you can use. A place to go and get the blood moving. Always good for the morale. That's a long time to be with someone. You probably feel like there was a death in the family or something. I know it's very hard but really, no suicide. There's a lot left to do. Hang in there. Henry

And that is the truest, most awesome thing anybody could to someone who is suffering through that type of torment.

I didnt even read the Sean O'Neil thing, and quite frankly it'll turn my fucking stomach if I do.
