The reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated.

Been off work for a few weeks, and haven't been checking my facebook or phone either.

But I get back to it today, and everybody's posting RIP messages on my wall... and posting gloomy status's



Does it really only take 7 days before people assume the worst? are we that dependent on social networking that death is the only possible explanation for going offline for a week?

I bet someone read that "Metal is dead" and got confused.

Noting your location, one probably was concerned about the Sheriff or the Evil Prince John getting you.

Oh like sure ... that's the first time you ever got that.

I think it's awful that people jump to conclusions and don't take the time to to think (or read).

However, you will be missed.

You should have hung back and milked it. Just to see what everybody said about you now that you're dead. It's not often a person gets a first hand look at who will attend their funeral... I think it'd be worth seeing.

How did you get you get your Telecaster to stick out from the wall like that in your avatar pic? Duct tape?
