Wow
Never met him
Didn’t always agree with him but read his posts and saw where he was coming from and respected his passion. Agree it did sound like he had it tough
Too young
RIP

Thanks guys, thread's not about me, but I do think I understood how he felt in relation to the world a lot of the time.  At the least I could empathize with it. 

It probably has more to do with my own issues, which clearly are different from his, than it does with reality.

I connected with him on facebook messenger for a while a few years back.
He was nothing but lucid and cool those times.
His last message was congrats for the Cubs winning the world series, he was an avid Brewers fan.
Dude knew his phish inside and out.
Sucks.

Geez...bummer.  I never had a feeling about the guy one way or the other too much, but I always appreciate someone that stirs it up.  Never like to hear about a fellow head passing.  God speed troublemaker.
You're just lucky I can't quote you in the WAP version of this site.

Whoa. Sad. RIP.

As I recall, he mostly drove me nuts, but yes, he certainly was one of a kind around here. Not someone you forget.

And so, as a result, I would think of him every so often and wonder what pot he's out there stirring. 

same.   

He was a good dude certainly in a 'paug kind of way.  I loved him in the show club and elsewhere.  I made a Simple mix one time and used a Simple esque jam from Mike's that he adamantly pointed out was not Simple.  We went back and forth respectfully, that was him in a nutshell.  I too used to laugh and get off on his shenanigans vicariously.  Sometimes he went too far and seemed to post off the wall stuff to create cognitive dissonance.  Whatever his modus was, whoever he pissed off daily, he was liked and respected.  RIP Faux.

Thanks for sharing the news and that video, Hicks. Faux's message there really resonates and I've thought the same a lot these days, about everyone lifting each other up through example. It's so much easier said than done, as we plainly know, as to break your heart sometimes.

Damn, just reading this.
I never had any personal beef with the dude, other than giving it back to
him when he would stir the pot, but that’s what we do here.
Majorly shitty news.
RIP FPFR.

That's actually quite beautiful.
Takes me awhile to understand the online troll persona as I'm not much of a messageboard guy.
Knowing how he was IRL really gives ya perspective.
The guy left his mark on the community without a doubt.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

RIP Faux.

I was thinking about this last night. I am going to create an account for my wife so that if anything unexpected ever happens to me she can let you all know. I know we have some connections outside the board, i.e. Facebook, texting, emails. But if I went suddenly it might be a while before you guys would hear about it. You guys are as much my friends as people I see IRL, if not more so. So if you ever see a post from misscharlie, that will be her. Thinking about mortality is pretty saddening.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.
