In these days of state sponsored and induced paranoia, when a mentally ill person who tries to burn his shoe with a lighter on an airplane can cause people to willingly allow themselves to be basically strip-searched in public, or when over-protective parents fearing cuts and bruises on their unfortunately mundane, ununique children can cause playgrounds to be made out of rubber and plastic, all by threat of lawsuit, Danny Boy Falla threw himself headlong and recklessly into adventure. He rejected the sickness gripping our social order and paid the price. He was clobbered by cops for protesting everything from illegal wars to the sacrilegious expansion of Highway 55. He gave away or let get lost any material possession that came his way. And he drank way too much because, for one thing, he couldn't stand the conformity, mediocrity, and unvalued creativity he saw from day to day. He told me this. He told me a lot of things. Above all he wanted to be free which meant living and dying as he did, without compromise. And he was free; he always will be. He traveled from coast to coast and all points in between by freight train, and that's how he died, on a train headed west. He will be missed constantly. His spirit and memory will always be alive. There will be songs, stories, and poems. Ending is always beginning.

So sorry to learn about this loss. I hope you're able to connect with folks who crossed paths with him along the way. Your tribute above is beautiful.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
