How Can This Be?

I just got the seriously shitty news that my friend Blaine Sizemore was struck by a car and killed over the weekend.

In addition to being a total sweetheart, Blaine was the drummer for Seattle bands Tiny Manhood and Dong II Dong. He had very recently relocated to West Virginia, and we barely had time to miss him before he was gone.

The two bands, plus friends, are planning a memorial show at the Rendezvous Jewel Box sometime soon. We will be drinking heavily until then. If you were a friend or fan of Blaine, watch this space for details of the shows. I hardly know what to say, this whole thing stinks.

Blaine was my brother and i love him very much and i know that he died where he wanted and doing what he loved most in the world which was walking after leaving a great time with his friends. His family and I are all devistated and appreciate all the kind words and offerings from all of his family. ~Tanya Sizemore

We will all remember those big beautiful eyes that hung on your every word. That wonderful smile, his free spirit and loving soul. He was loved by so many and he loved them all back. We will truly miss him but he will live on in our hearts forever. - David & Kathy Hunter
