Which is odd, because there is a full version of KK v G with the inaccurate english subtitles created by VD that's been up for Nine Months. Although to be fair, my "Skeleturtle" video which was about a 30 second clip was up for several years. Be thankful though. My whole youtube channel was just taken down suddenly without any warning or reason given, and without ability to petition reinstatement, about six months ago. I don't know if it was the skeleturtle video, or something else, considering I had no other copyrighted video or audio, it is my guess, but since they didn't tell me, I'll never know.

Well I'm going to have to figure something out because even after 8 different cuts it's still getting claimed instantaneously and none of it makes any sense. If there was something wrong at the 12 minute mark the fifth time, that means there was something wrong the first 4 times. Why is their system not showing me EVERYTHING wrong at one time? It's a waste of time to have to go back and re-edit and re-render the video this many times when it should have just showed me it all at once.

I confessed my feelings to someone today. I kind of predicted the result in advance, so I'm not feeling as awful as I could, but still...

Got a phone call at work from my wife yesterday afternoon and learned that my stepfather had two mini-strokes (TIA) yesterday morning. Just talked with him the day before (Labor Day) and he was doing great. Sometimes life just sucks. Getting old really blows, no matter how you look at it. You guys in your 30's-40's or younger... cherish those years: Life is good, you have your health and your folks are still doing good.

Because once you get into your 50's things start falling apart on you, parents and aunts & uncles start dying off ... and then before you know it, it's your turn to surf the downward spiral. So take care of yourself, enjoy your health & youth while you can gang, because seemingly in the blink of an eye, it's gone. :|

Stepfather died yesterday afternoon; cardiac arrest. ER team worked on him for almost 20mins but never got a pulse back.

You're alive... you're dead. Just like that. No fanfare, no heavenly choir, nothing.

Like I said "enjoy your health & youth while you can gang, because seemingly in the blink of an eye, it's gone."

I'm so sorry, Jinzo Ningen. Times like these are part of the reality of life but they're always difficult to endure. It's the price we organisms pay to exist and all we can do is try to make the most of our time while we can, for ourselves and for those we care about. You got to be a part of your stepfather's life and you know that his experience knowing you will always be a part of his existence.

The funny thing ("odd" not "ha-ha") is that we weren't close - at all. My main memories of him were that he loved my mother deeply and without reservation and took damn good care of her. That was all I really cared about. He was a very nice man and had tons of friends but their geographical distance from me made getting to know him difficult. On top of that, I was so wrapped up in my own life that getting to know the guy who married my mom just got put on the backburner. Cut to 20 years later and it's suddenly too late and you're left with that incredibly lame "gee, I sure wish I'd gotten to know him better" statement. For him, there is no aftershock or coping/adapting; he went quickly pretty much, so there's no suffering for him either. It's all on the ones he's left behind.

His loss is of direct concern to me because of what he meant to my mother. They were like peanut butter & jelly; you never saw one without the other. She relied on him for most everything in her day-to-day life; reminding her to take her medicine, driving her to doctor appointments, shopping, etc., etc. Now that anchor has been cut loose and she's adrift and, in no small way, suddenly very much alone in the world. Family & friends will be there for support but over time that will dwindle, she will eventually have to re-learn how to live by herself. My fear is: can she do that? Her health as been declining over the last five years or so, even more in the last 18 months. I am deeply afraid that, combined with the loss of his physical absence & assistance, plus simply losing the other half of her whole life... will literally kill her. He was her rock and now, just like that, he's gone. Trying to start your life over at 75 is no easy feat. I am terrified for her. Her distance (14hr drive) and refusal to move closer to myself and the rest of her immediate family bothers me but I also understand her reasons, (a beautiful home that's paid for, no bad winters plus lots and lots of friends), and wouldn't try to force her. I must simply make the best of it, as must she.

Now I have to travel halfway across the country tomorrow and spend the next week trying to shore up my mother while she buries the man she's spent the last quarter of a century growing to love deeper & deeper with each passing day. Thank God my wife will be there with me, for me to turn to for support... or else I fear I will crumble. Yes, it's part of life and no, it's certainly not a very pleasant part. With every passing year I further dread when those dark days come for me. I just hope it's relatively quick & painless. And I hope my wife goes before I do. I hate the thought of her being alone, as my mother is now. She doesn't deserve such pain. She has enough of that with me while I'm still alive to regularly aggravate her. ;-)

I can't imagine the scale of the loss that your mother must be feeling. At her age she's probably going to have a particularly hard time re-learning how to live on her own. She's probably going to need your help, even from a long distance, at least when it comes to remembering when to take her medicine because that is crucial. Maybe when you see her you can work out a schedule where you call or text her when it's time for her to take it. She probably won't ignore it or delay if it's you contacting her and it could have a positive impact on her ability to carry on.

Nothing like finding out today that your grandma died back in June but no one bothered to tell you until it slipped out.

^ I'm sorry, Kain. When I was 17 I didn't find out that my Papaw had cancer until the week before we went to visit him, which ended up being a month before he passed. Families seem prone to avoid bringing up tragedy and it can cause them to unintentionally leave certain members in the dark for a very long time.

^ One of my grandmas is so averse to it that when someone dies she won't mention them, much less the death, for years afterwards. For a while there the person's entire existence is nullified in her mind.

It is disheartening but sadly not unusual. 25 years ago, the reason why my wife's family moved back to California from Arizona is because one of her cousins had become pregnant and the baby was 3 months old before any family in AZ knew. Her uncle (the cousins dad) was so ashamed he threatened anyone living in California not to tell my wife's immidiate family, which is ludicrous because people are going to find out eventually...

But it's that odd twist that allowed me to meet her in the first place. Something good occuring from a very awkward situation.

I'm so sorry that happened to you Kain. I'm estranged from pretty much my fathers entire side of the family so I can relate somewhat. But that's still a crappy thing that was done to you.

Well apparently not knowing is my own fault for my mom never wanting to talk to me ever again. No idea how that works, but okay, whatever.

Not sure who's really left anymore for the family I grew up with. I know I was told when my cousin died last year that he had a wife and kid, but I have never met them and never expect I ever will. I only met my dad's brother's kids twice when I was a kid, so I have no recollection of who they are. I know my Step-Grandma is still alive and living on her own in Detroit after her son died a few year's ago, but eh, no point in trying to figure it all out at this point, it is what it is.
