Thanks so much to everybody in the Lounge and I am so sorry.

Jim, MiddleFingerMom, passed away today. This place and all of you made his life worthwhile the past couple of years. He loved you and he loved being able to bring a smile to your face, or especially a guffaw or spit take. His humor and honesty are the two outstanding traits that bound our friendship. He could be a dick if he disagreed with you, but he was totally honest and never bullshitted anybody. In fact the only fib I ever saw him tell in over 10 years of knowing him, was the one about being immortal. Rest in Peace my friend.

2. "Cannonball"

I do so hope that's exactly what was running through his mind.

You've been wonderful Kali. I know you, perhaps more than any of the rest of us. will miss him. He was a good man and the world lost him too soon.

Peace and love.

12. Oh my God NO!

He spent days compiling the funniest posts in the lounge...

I knew he was in and out of the hospital...but hoped he would not succumb...

What a great man...I remember when I thought he was a woman...'middle finger mom'

I had never seen a photo...what a great one for a great man...

Though I am not a lounge 'lizzard' I too will miss him greatly

14. OMG!



I've only been here a short while and traded a few barbs and email messages with Jim, but I really looked forward to reading his posts and enjoying his zaniness.

I know that he had many medical problems recently so I hope that his passing was actually a blessing so he could be relieved of the pain and hardship. He will be sorely missed, but all of us have been benefited from getting to know him.

Thank you Kali for all that you have done to look out for our friend.

I knew he was very ill, but this is such a sad, awful shock.

I'm so sorry Kali and everyone else here and in real life who loved him .... including me. DU will never be the same.

19. I just saw this in the GN group and posted in that thead...

MFM brought a smile to so many here-- and given the frequent DU conflicts--that is a real accomplishment.

His humor and positive example--in the face of frequent serious health issues-- is something I will take with me.

RIP, MFM. YOU will be sorely missed.

Jim was the epitome of this place, funny as hell, mean when he wanted to be, but one of the most innocent people in many ways I've ever known. He's been sick for so long.

Oh, I am so very sad.

Cross easy, you Immortal Bastid.

34. A friend I had never met in person.

Seemed like he had a way of communicating ideas and thoughts that reached out to everyone here.

As all know, he will be missed and will leave an unfillable hole in the Lounge.

So glad I had an opportunity to cross paths with this gentle soul.

I won't grieve, but will think back on some of his posts, his humor, that would give me (all of us) a lift on a bad day.
Thank you, Jim for being you.

ETA - I have been afraid this time was coming, but it does hurt.

129. i saw the post in GD and felt my stomach flip….

look at that sweet face….

add me to the long list of people who will miss him.



I remember when I found out he was a guy! Thought he was a woman with a hilarious DU name….then when I found out he was NOT a woman, I just couldn't wrap my head around it for the longest time! LOL Gotta be the best name ever.





now I can't quite wrap my head around this…..

205. My gosh. I'm so sorry. Vibes to him. What lucky people across the rainbowbridge who now get to

laugh their asses off with him there. It wasn't just the humour that made MFM so special. He extended the hand of friendship to us all and teased us. In my case that made made me feel safe and happy. And I trusted him implicitly. Which is very rare for me. He had ideas for how I could entertain my parents. He encouraged my lounge posts. He was brilliantly funny in a gentle self effacing way. I'm glad he is not in any pain right now...but am not ready for this huge space. This will change the DU for me. And for us all. But he'll be here for all eternity and generations who study the origins of internet will come upon his timeless humour and enjoy it. No MFM is not done yet. Our relationship to him has just changed. Vibes to all those close to him. We love you MFM.

The Death-bed

WE watch'd her breathing thro' the night,
Her breathing soft and low,
As in her breast the wave of life
Kept heaving to and fro.

So silently we seem'd to speak,
So slowly moved about,
As we had lent her half our powers
To eke her living out.

Our very hopes belied our fears,
Our fears our hopes belied—
We thought her dying when she slept,
And sleeping when she died.

For when the morn came dim and sad,
And chill with early showers,
Her quiet eyelids closed—she had
Another morn than ours.

Thomas Hood. 1798–1845

and Jim riffed off of it. And did it stick. And became Fucking Immortal.

ETA:

In life, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well, there is nothing to worry about,
But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will get well or you will die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about,
But if you die, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will go to heaven or hell.
If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.

...and if you go to hell, you’ll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends
You won’t have time to worry!

228. I'm just in disbelief that MFM is gone. I can't tell you how much I appreciated him.

Last edited Fri Jan 10, 2014, 04:29 AM - Edit history (1)

And I have a confession: I had a crush on him (in a DU personae way only) several summers ago. I could no longer take the contentious Obama threads in GD back then & for the first time, I began checking out the Lounge after years of ignoring it in favor of focusing on GWB discussions in GD.

I liked the name "MiddleFingerMom" right away. It attracted my attention enough to want to know what's on the inside of his subject lines. I think he could have been a great comedy writer; I liked the way he could take a corny idea & turn it into something clever.

I initially thought MFM was a woman. I've enjoyed SoCalDem's writing style & humor for years & was beginning to wonder if this "MFM" could actually be a SoCalDem (sorry--> ) sock ; their humor & intelligence struck me as similar.

He had integrity. At times he needed moral support, he gave the benefit of the doubt to those who posted unkind things to him/about him. That's right; in private e-mails, which would only be read by the two of us, he gave them the benefit of the doubt. Pettiness wasn't his style; he never said an unkind word toward anyone in my exchanges with him. He was that good of a person.

I'm stunned. I enjoyed his presence on DU so much. He will be missed tremendously.

This was created by Dystopian for one of the past DU fund raisers:

and i feel very sad for you, kali. your loss runs deep.
and i feel bad for everything jim had to go through just to finally be free.

but he *is* free--and i imagine he is dancing now with an even more lovely expression on his face than the one he has in the beautiful picture you posted.
and with wide, open arms he embraces you. he's fine now.

There was a time a couple or years ago, when I was having a bit of a rough time. He actually consoled me. And he had so much more to worry about, health wise. He was a good man.

I don't believe in an afterlife, but I do believe energy doesn't die. Somewhere in the firmament is some extra snark, stirring up the molecules around it. When it blows by us, we'll smile, remembering.

You know, I am just about to reach my first year, February would be when I'll hit it. Reading MFM's posts has been a joy.
To tell the truth, even when I hear about his medical problems, I always thought he was young, and as he said, immortal.

I thought he was someone younger but wiser than me. When I see pictures of a guy with white hair and beard, I kept thinking those were posts being ironic, more than anything else.

It was actually only late last month that I finally wrapped my mind around the fact that the head being posted in various states of dishabille was indeed MFM. It made things just funnier.

I'll miss the guy, but he will still be immortal in my mind.

"In the Embers" by Sleeping At Last

We live and we die like fireworks
Our legacies hide in the embers
May our stories catch fire and burn
Bright enough to catch God's eye
We live and we die like fireworks

We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars with all of our hearts
'Til our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

May we live and die a valorous life
May we write it all down in cursive light
So we pray we were made in the image of a figure-eight
May we live and die like fireworks

We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars with all of our hearts
'Til our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

Like fireworks we pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars with all of our hearts
'Til our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

361. He Will Be Missed

Most in the lounge remember MiddleFingerMom for his razor sharp, zany sense of humor .
I got to see the serious side of MFM in the few times he left the lounge, and was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the intellect behind the humor. I personally think he made a lot of less gifted folks uncomfortable, which is why they were happy to see him stay here.
And I think he loved being here, where he was so loved and appreciated.

He Will Be Missed.

“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.”

We didn't always see things the same way, but I enjoyed every minute he was here and I am very sorry he is gone. As a former (banned) DU-er pointed out, though, there are many different forms of mortality, and that MFM will always live on in the Lounge. Just as people repost Redstone's posts and keep his spirit alive here, I know we'll do the same with Jim.

I'm so sorry, Kali; I know how much you and others who were close to him must be grieving. My condolences.

May not sound like much but it is a big compliment to MFM. His life meant something important and I miss him.

403. R.I.P. Jim...

...just spotted this. What a sad piece of news.

Before I go any further, I want too clarify something that many of you already know...I am here under the screen name "Miles Archer" because my computer died in October and I lost everything, including User IDs and Passwords. I couldn't request a password reset because I didn't remember which email address I'd used to sign up. But before the crash, I was DUer Amerigo Vespucci, so MFM and I had a long history of give-and-take here.

When I think of Jim, the first thing that usually comes to mind is the glee he would express when I'd post some horrendously inappropriate graphic, telling me he'd "stolen" it for future use.

We didn't communicate much outside of the Lounge, but we did exchange a few PMs. He was always torn between positing for his own enjoyment and posting for response and recognition. I'd encourage him to just do his thing and tell him about posts of my own that...in my opinion...were dripping with genius and totally lacking in responses.

We all know the ups and downs of his health in the last few years...more than any one person should go through. He's at rest now, pulling down his pants in that great corner bar in the sky. He accomplished what many of us attempt and few of us achieve...he was an original, through and through, to the end. I am convinced that he would want nothing other than unrestrained merriment in his memory, no sadness, no morose thoughts...so join me in partying for Jim.
