Does anyone happen to still have the Daemon Connect 4 meme image? I think it's the one that first introduced me and many here to the legacy of that fucking beautiful tongue of his.
Plzzzzzzz someone post this!!
I haven't written much, partly because...there's just no words. Example: how do you use words to describe the very specific specialness of being 16, chatting on AIM to your friend in Las Vegas (a world away at the time) over your 56k connection? How do you explain MAGfest without explaining theshizz...and how do you even explain THESHIZZ? And so how do you put Daemon9623 into words?
But anyway, here's what I wrote when Extra Lives asked for "your favorite Daemon memory"
There's no one single memory I can pick. It's more of a long, shared history of people with a lot in common, starting with the old Minibosses "Booger Board", which later migrated to theshizz as we know it now. It's 19 years of friendship, starting with NES games, video game music, and stupid internet jokes, to meeting in real life at events that we all loved. It's not a single moment or memory: it's a thousand of them, from the mind-blowing life-changing concerts we saw together, to the mundane tooth-brushing before bed wherever we were staying that night. He was a great guy, through and through, and an absolutely integral part of this community that we've been immersed in for over half our lives.
