Great job, thank you.

This has been in my head since the first Podcast back from his passing, but here is my idea:
Step 1: We need someone good at photoshop to take a photo of Ryan in his chair, and mod it so it looks like a bronze statue.
Step 2: We create a video with the image for Kickstarter to raise $80,000 (what my research has led me to believe we will need) to hire the sculptor to create a life size bronze statue of Ryan in the chair.
Step 3: We offer as a reward for the Kickstarter you initials on the back of his chair. The more you pledge the more characters you get. On the back above all it says "Fuck Ryan Davis / Love Ryan Davis" then all the initials below.
Step 4: Part of the money we raise is for transportation, and mounting of the statue. Those that support the Kickstarter get to vote on the location that it will be placed. We choose the dumbest place we can think of, some park in San Francisco, middle of nowhere Kansas, next to Mount Rushmore, center of Detroit? I don't know somewhere fully stupid.
Step 5: We make a pilgrimage there to show our love for the man.
This idea is so dumb that if it fails, it fails because it is so dumb, and if it succeeds, it succeeds because it is so dumb.
I almost never post, but I always subscribed because I wanted to show I cared for those who cared for me. I cannot think of long walks up mountains, biking in the desert, or so many other times when I was alone, but not alone. Because I had Ryan's personality in my earphones. I moved away from Chicago to Spain for five years back at the end of the Hotspot days and the only English I heard was from the now GB crew, I was devastated at the Jeff incident back then, but I am numb at how much more this is. I can't help but dread going out on long walks a little bit more alone. I know that the sadness will change to joyful reverence for a great man, but right now it hurts.
