Pierre, is he ok?

His regular posts are missing after complaints of continued pneumonia over weeks, maybe months?

No Christmas Moose posts, and it was just Christmas. This guy lives for Moose postings. And Christmas.

Also, no Monday Morning Moo’s.

Pierre, if you’re out there seeing this, your absence is noted with alarm.

r170, a few of us sent donations to Brian's favorite animal shelter and sent condolences to his sister/family saying how we all appreciated him from Datalounge, and she did reply and thanked us. It just showed her how far and sort of obscure Brian's influence was.

R176 Would you mind posting the name of Brian’s favorite animal shelter? I want to make a donation. I’m late to the news; I just found out the other day.

I keep popping into this thread to see if anybody else posted. I guess I’m hurting, too.

Reading his posts are what got me to be a daily reader of DL, I loved his brain and his writing style and his absurd sense of humor.

It’s been a few days and I’m still grieving him, I thought others might be, too. If so, you can post here and have some company. Miss you, Moose.

A few years ago I was having a bad spell. Things were awful and nothing was going well for me. I mentioned my struggles in a post (can't remember which thread), the first person to respond to me was the Moose, wishing me well and offering a slobbery Moose kiss. His simple post put a smile on my face and I still think of that moment of kindness offered to me. Miss you Moose.

I don't want to post the link, or even a screenshot for fear of doxxing, but damn, I'm even more teary eyed now than before.

Thanks, R187, I'm sure you're right. I'm sure he'd be sending us all slobbery Moose kisses.

One of Pierre’s “tells” was his exuberant use of exclamation points, like this! Those exclamations gave away his true identity with different characters more than I think he knew. Of course I never told him. I was a fan who enjoyed his personas and wouldnt dream of outing him!

I'm R73, and his sister's FB announcement was updated to say he died on December 25th (and also removed a link for donations to the Kelsey S. Harrington Foundation). Here's an official obituary confirming the Christmas date. I don't feel like I'm doxxing him at this point that it's been publicly announced. I'd like to think that he rode away on the Christmas Moose's sleigh.

R209, R218, I decided to tell my mom and I even showed her his obit. She knows nothing of DL, I simply said he was a member of a website I frequent (true!). She marveled at his accomplishments, thought he was handsome, AND thought he looked to be in his 40s (so years younger than his age!! ). She was understanding, and agreed that people we don't know personally can touch us deeply and in unexpected ways. I told her how he expressed kindness towards me when I was at a low point and that I was forever grateful for that - she said she too was grateful that a stranger showed me kindness when I needed it.

Never imagined we'd learn there was something really wrong, let alone that he was dead. Although I did not share Pierre's interests or brand of humor, he seemed like a very nice guy who only wanted to spread some cheer here, and I'm sorry that he's gone. Condolences to his DL buddies who came to know him well. To his sister, if she somehow ends up here, I'm sorry for your and your family's loss.

Today I was in Northern Ontario when my coworker and I saw two large brown spots in the distance. As we got closer we could see that the two brown spots were two moose just ahead of us!

We slowed down, blared the horn and they ambled out of our way. I see moose from time to time while at work, but aside from a mother and calf, I've never seen two together and I've been doing this job for 15 years! I don't know a lot about moose, all I can tell you is that they were huge and neither had antlers.

Here’s what Pierre wrote on his 60th birthday, 8/16/20. I think it might cheer you.

“For my birthday:

When I am an old man I shall wear caftans and earrings

With a red sash which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.

And I shall spend my Social Security on bourbon and butt plugs

And Calvin Klein Velcro sneakers, and say we’ve no money for Duke’s mayo.

I shall lounge wherever I damn well please when I’m tired

And gobble up samples in Aldi and press alarm bells

And run my dick along the public railings

And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall flounce about as I please

And pick my nose, though not other people’s noses

And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow even more fat

And eat three pounds of carbs, onion rings, and cake at a go

Or only bread and NO pickles for a week

And hoard pencils for dialing the phone.

But now we must have clothes from Barney’s that keep us dry

And pay our rent and not dare to be too sweet

And set a good example for the chickens.

We must have friends to dinner and keep up on the gossip.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now?

So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised

When suddenly I am old, and start to wear caftans.”
