Holy shit! I had no idea he died a few months ago!

For anyone not familiar with the name, he was the guy who sang most of Digimon's opening themes including "Butterfly". I was pretty excited when he was brought on to re-record the music for Digimon Tri, the ending song for Part 2 being the last single released five days before his death from cancer.

Goddamn. I feel like I lost a bit of my childhood. It sucks harder than losing Leonard Nimoy, but he had lived to a ripe old age and achieved so much.

Fuck cancer.

Here's a link to the original theme, since LJ has updated and I don't remember how to embed into the post: https://youtu.be/6qtn_hu0CXk
...which is originally what I was gonna post before finding out about Wada.

Anyway, the whygodwhy.org site it became after House of Badfic (the first post official GAFF board after the original shut down) went to piss is gone. Not that anyone bothered snarking fanfic anymore and even the news section dried up ages ago, but I guess it's an idea that is past its prime. There's not much that shocks many people in fan fiction anymore, and honestly? While there's more bad fan fiction out there, there's also a whole lot more good shit, too. AO3 seems to enjoy a higher quality than most places, and at the very minimum I haven't come across shipper related character bashing in any of the fics I've read there.

No point in lamenting the past....just be glad you were there to enjoy it.
