Another one bites the dust

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I hated Rush solely because of Geddy Lee. I could never listen to them.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Peart last week, Terry Jones this week. I'm losing the people that entertained me as kid.

Jones wrote the "Funniest joke in the world sketch"... some of the best comedy writing ever.

RIP Terry you brilliant bastard.

There's a report that his 13-year old daughter also passed away in the crash.

Can't confirm yet...
