Many of us that were close to Dayan probably have some fun anecdotes or just some warm and fuzzy memories. This is the place to share them.

One of my personal favorites is the time he called me. With my being so outrageously hyper and fast talking and him and his accent the conversation mostly was a lot of "huhs" and "whats" It was comical. Comical because it went on like this for A LONG DAMN TIME. I felt so bad I think I apologized to him (online) about a million times. He just laughed at me and said "aye..."

Anyone else care to share anything? Something positive, mind. Loss of a friend is not completely about loss and sadness....memories should be shared and the good times remembered. No, I'm not working for Hallmark Cards, you can drop that theory now. I just want to see people smile and have a good memory today on this day of sad things. So share some stories!

For about the first two months I knew him, he called me Candice and I called him Debaser..lol. So formal. Then one day, after we'd talked a little bit without anyone else around, I told him I was sick of that, so from now on we were going to call eachother Cand and Debs and that was that.

My favorite memory of him is when I helped him apply makeup. There was some reason he had to take a picture of himself in drag (this was pre-PVC), I can't remember why....but it was really late at night and I was the only other person on IRC...so I gave him instructions. His responses to everything were just hilarious..and he ended up jabbing himself in the eye with the mascara wand. I was the first to see those pictures, and I about fell over laughing. I will never, ever forget that. Or any of the memories I have with him. I'll think of tons more later, I'm sure. I hope he knew how much I loved him. He was such a wonderful friend to me...and we spent so much time together in IRC just talking about nothing in particular that there are so many memories. I'll cherish them always.

I wasn't very close to him, mind, but he handled my two divorces and was always very nice. I also was the one who gave him his livejournal code.

Yeah, it's useless, but ... *shrug*

I'll never EVER forget the Birmingham meet, he got so rip roaring drunk and missed his train home, so I went to the bar in Scruffy Murphy's at about 10pm and asked for the Yellow Pages and a pint of water, the water was for dayan, the Yellow Pages was for me, I spent the next (what felt like) hour trawling for hotels that still had a twin room free and had an open checkin at well past midnite, at this point Dayan had sobered up enough to walk on his own with out falling over, course now he wouldn't stop saying sorry and thank you, bless you dayan you were always welcome, now i think about it.... lil' bugger still owes me £30....i guess i can let that slide now tongue.gif

if i were to remeber one thing about dayan, it was his laugh, he had the most unique laugh i've ever heard, i'll always remember him for that

Unless Dayan told people about this, no one knew. But back when IRC was in another room, it was late at night...just me and him again...and he got kicked out of the room. In walks someone with the name of "Mata" who says "Hi Cand, who is Dacey?" Dacey, btw, was a bot. I tried to explain (my explanation was less than accurate as to what she really did), then lo and behold, "Mata" transformed into "debaser," who commenced in laughing at me. tongue.gif

I still can't believe I bought that one. happy.gif

Oh god...and of course....the poll about Jason Patric and Kiefer Sutherland. Debs, my dear...we are still RIGHT!

He was my absolute love and adoration.. and I was so stupid when talking to him

We had this one conversation in YIM about falling in love with forumites and how nobody thinks its real or plausable .. and he said something about how it had happened to him, and I said the same .. but at the time, he was talking about Laura and how she was just like him and sweet and caring and everything.. I lost the balls to say I'd been talking about him, but did it later anyway.

That was all so stupid and dramatic. All of that.. it happened with Jon and everyone.. and I guess by the time we both figured it out, it was too late.

All the nicks, too. Debbie, debs, debesexilicioius, all of it. his chief powwow of irc, making me a mod too, being my best f--king friend who let me use his british words and laughed when I tried to say arse and sound english. he swam when he called me and he was drunk just to say he loved me, throwing up in the toilet and apologizing.. he'd never stop apologizing no matter how many times I said it was ok and I loved him no matter what. he paid to talk to me and I never got to pay him back or do what I was supposed to, I was absolute crap and never deserved him. I told about the rubber duck even though it was cute, .. I don't know, I just fell in love with him. that's the best memory.

having fallen for someone like him.

Dayan, chucking up his guts on the street in Birmingham - then air-guitaring madly to Ace of Spades with Lee and I as if nothing had happened.

Dayan and I air-guitaring (I get the feeling that a lot of Dayan-related memories will involve air guitar) to The Song That Must Not Be Named EVERY TIME WE HEARD IT.

Dayan in a Camden pub, talking about Katii with a mad gleam in his eye - a gleam that only got madder with every pint.

Dayan signing in as ChanServ and I as Googlebot, scaring people.

Dayan threatening to sic the WereBugger on me whenever we argued (more or less constantly).

Dayan being a curly-haired emo fag. Just in general.

Dayan giggling at some stupid joke I'd told.

Dayan in PVC at my house - and the look of dismay on his face when my father, mother and sister came in to see.

That's enough for one post, I think.

i remember dayan arguing endlessly over whether gerbils were rodents and whether nirvana or the pixies were better. i remember bullsh*tting through an art essay, and showing it to him. i remember how we both ranted to each other about our homework. i remember how we'd pretend to have 'fights' (i.e. i type /me throws a sharpened piano at debs, and he kicks me off the IRC channel) all the time. i remember when he would steal pringles from forumites. i remember all the general post conversations we had on the forums. but, more than anything, i remember spending my first few waking hours for the past few weekends talking with him alone on IRC. talking about anything really (including most of what i just posted). he was such a great person to talk to, and such a great person all-around.

I'm sorry. I just have more.. and I don't want to forget anything.

The spam manitee, when he immitated me and borrowed all my emoticons.. when he said he was coming to las vegas and if i couldnt keep him he would sleep in a ditch, and i had to stop him. talking about how wonderful the meet would be, finally getting to see him and touch him and tackle him and kiss him. how much he hated logicman and thanked me for going to bat, helping me through sonic and in the yahoo chat, calling himself a cockmonger for the silliest reasons, putting the ice cubes in his shorts and documenting it, the sleep deprivation diaries, his guilt trips he sent me on, saying he loved hearing me laugh and that I was a poor britposeur if I said ass.. and on the 22nd when he called me, he said I said wanker correctly and that he was proud of me. i told him i loved him, i wanted him to know how much and that it was true. hanging up on my parents, me getting him with the mata irc joke, us joking about who raped who to make chanserv, us snogging and joking in whispers and his erps and bleahs and his perfection.

I don't know how long I can stay with this information.

I know he didn't take it too well, but you guys remember that time he came on IRC and we just tackled him with Dayan lurve? THen we made him LEAVE IRC so we could do something to surprise him. And we all switched nicks. I'm sorry, but that was just hilarious. I think he figured it out when he talked to me in whispers (thinking I was Commie).

two words... rubber duckie. =)

mostly i just remember this sweet guy who kept me company on the long afternoon waits between my calcII class and whenever Mike would come on. he was always so kind to me. he hardly gave me a chance to log on before he'd begin to care. "how's you?" he'd say. he always sympathized with me. not in a patronizing manner, just this calm, kind way that always made me feel better. i could tell him anything. and i did sometimes.

he's one of the few people in my life that never turned me away. never scraped me with a harsh word. just was there, always. whenever i needed him. especially when i needed him.

and i can't help but feel guilty, because he never came to me with his pain. i was so selfish. inconsiderate. maybe he couldn't trust me. i don't know.

i rarely told him how much he meant to me. i rarely told him that i loved him, but i did. i loved him too. i wish i could have told him that before he died. i can only hope that he knew.

I have lots of memories of Dayan.... but one that I remember most is me getting to play messanger between him and Jon.... I'll never forget that.... Jon saying one thing and Dayan countering with something random.... and then Dayan talking about how "irresistable" he was....

another memory that stands out in my mind is the first time I saw the pic of him in PVC.... I wouldn't let him forget about it... talking to him on Yahoo... every few posts I'd just put the link back up just to have him tell me to shut up about it.... and me saying that I had to make a big poster of it just to put it on my wall.... he always got a kick out of that....

He just always made me smile.... and I will always remember him for that....

The last time we played truth or dare in IRC...anyone who there knows what happened and resulted in me blushing furiously. I won't repeat it around innocent forum ears...

Me and Chan's e-wedding...even though he was nowhere in sight...imagine that! ohmy.gif In fact, me and Chan's whole affair.

I have so many memories....we spent an average of 4 or 5 hours a day talking in IRC. Shameless IRC addict that I am. I don't want to lose any of those memories. Some of them were just so damned funny that I still have to laugh..even now.

oh god, i dont even know where to start, his laugh, our late night conversations, the way, no matter what i had said or done, he always said he loved me before we hung up or went offline, his insane planning even when he claimed to be shy and retiring (sure dayan tongue.gif), the way he could always make me smile, the way i could always talk to him no matter the time of day, even when it concerned things i knew he didnt want to have to confront about me, how we argued constantly about music and he sneakily sent me songs until i saw his way of things, the time he hung up on my mum three times in a row cause he thought i would answer...even tohugh id just told him i was three miles from home, and just last week how much he freaked out when my friends kidnapped my keyboard and pretended to be me, stupid things, little things but thats what il remember about him. thankyou to everyone else, i was scared i would forget important things but i see now that we all have our own memories, our own little moments with him that will remain most precious to us and us alone...thankyou

dayan, i loved you, i still do. im eternally sorry for the way i hurt you, all those weeks lost through my own stupidity. im just glad i didnt lose you completely...im just glad we were talking again, friends again. im glad i have good memories of our last days and i hope you do too...i cant even see for the tears now but i have to keep typing, tell you how much you meant to me. i will never forget you, i only wish i had had one chance to hug you and tell you all this for real...

i just remembered something else...i want to write it down so i dont forget it again...when he was in turkey a few months back...and i got called three times in under an hour with him squealing cause some turkish waiter who looked like brian molko kept coming onto him and he couldnt get away...oh and "the great phone hijack" - almost a solid week when neither of us had money in our phones but we couldnt stand not talking so we "borrowed" our assorted parents and/or siblings phones to keep in touch...and the time he called me near pulling his hair out cause he couldnt find a lighter or matches but was surrounded by hundreds of duty-free cigarettes his mum wouldnt notice going missing (also in turkey)

ok...thats me...for now...

There's a lot of memories from me...happy memories...like the time we got really bored and took the piss out of the Tony Hawk games, we invented one called ''Tony Hawk: Jizzlobber''...hahaha....that went on for about an hour....''Minger! Speed halved!''

Or the time I gave my mobile number and we could'nt find the code for Ireland to put at the start...such franticness....

Or the time he told me his theory that every band has an outsider:''Black Francis is one....because he's fat..... =P''.....

Or the music discussions........the last time I talked to him, we finally managed to settle the System vs. Pixies fight....

That's all I can think of for now...I wish I could have seen that glass-eye trick....

Yes. He got me with that one.

I can't post my thoughts and memories of Dayan right now. I used to talk to him every night on msn. Just feels far to surreal to think that won't happen any more.

Sorry. Selfish of me not to share really.

It's hard to know what to say at times like this. I'm incredibly shocked, we all knew Dayan was having troubles but I don't think any of us really realised just how serious it had become.

It's always tempting to think that there is something more we could have done. From looking through his posts and his livejournal it's clear there was a lot more going on than he was telling anyone and I'm not sure that we could have made more difference to his life than we did. I hope that by knowing him and being his friends, we made the last few months less painful for him than they would have been otherwise.

I know I have personally enjoyed chatting with him and, for as much as I did, getting to know him. As this thread shows, lots of you knew him better than I, so the most I can say is that he was a really sweet guy.

He was the person who sorted out the IRC channel for me after it was first set up. He was really happy to be helping out and I was grateful for him to be taking control of something that I really didn't know about. I remember being told that he was so happy when he heard I'd made him a mod on these forums, he was on holiday at the time. I was glad to have made him so happy, and looking back on it maybe that was because, in making him a mod, I was saying I respected him.

He wasn't afraid to speak his mind on subjects but he would listen to others too. That's quite rare in a person.

He's now finding out what, if anything, happens next. Whatever finally drove him to this is now over and things are peaceful for him. His family and friends are the people who now have to live on with the knowledge that they have lost an intelligent, emotional man from their lives. As we remember him please also remember his family too. To suffer the loss of a child... Well.

The last few posts in his livejournal speak about a dream that he kept on having about his own death. Understandably this upset him a lot. I can't imagine what was going on during those last few days. I hope this was something he did without forethought, I don't like the idea of him dwelling on it.

Memories... Like I said before, I remember hearing how happy he was when I made him a mod on here. And of course, when we met up in Birmingham for the meet, the glass eye, the over-drinking, the apologies, the drunken dancing. It was a really cool night. We sat and talked about music for about half an hour. As I said earlier, he was a really sweet guy, I'm sad that I won't be seeing him again soon.

I've been crying a few times over the last day since I heard about this. It's so hard to know what to say when something like this happens. I guess that's something else he's managed to do, make me feel lost for words to describe something. I don't have that happen very often!

Thanks Debs, this one's for you.
