To a point. There's a distinction to be made between letting people help you and placing your burden on others.
Generally speaking you're correct. But that's not been my experience.

I shouldn't have even brought this all up. Haha

I haven’t made a NGD thread on this forum since 2014. I just don’t share much about my gear.

I made my first NGD thread in eight years, and members of this group began dogpiling on me to the point that a mod stepped in and completely removed the thread based on his own decision.

Yeah…no more NGD threads from me anymore. In fact, I think I’m done with this forum.

I saw the thread and some of the dog piling, but it was less of a NGD post and more of a hit piece on the guy that sold you the gear. Could have just put in "didn't arrive as advertised" and left it at that. Was a cool guitar and I missed the exact reasons why it got nuked, but the wall of screenshots and emails is taking the focus off of the gear and onto a business deal gone bad.

Kim Jung Gi is dead. Dude was one of the most talented and prolific ink artists in the last 10+ years. He was not only technically good but also super creative with his compositions and creations.

I let one of my best friends kill himself today. We'd all seen the signs, we'd all seen him asking for help and attention. He became extremely toxic and difficult to be around so most of us unfortunately ghosted him because that was easier than saying good bye. He posted on social media last week that he'd pay someone to hang out with him, but if youd see the comments underneath back from him when people try to meet up, you wouldn't want to see him either. He became nasty and a know it all, and an incel. Started blaming things on women.

He ended it today and I could have hung out with him one last time at least. But I didn't.


Hug your friends and stick with them, maybe if I did that for him he'd still be here and his parents wouldn't have lost an extremely talented son.

Rest in Peace Jackson. I'm really sorry this is how I'm saying goodbye to you man. Walk on home, boy.

I’m terribly sorry to hear that man. I just passed a one year anniversary of a friend taking their own life as well. Same thing: lots of signs, and they just had a really hard time with life, but I never predicted a permanent choice. I mean I just couldn’t even fucking believe it for weeks, so don’t be surprised if you linger on this one for a while. Again, I’m sorry to hear.

I mean, I'm sure I'd be looking at it the same way if it was me in that position, but the reality is you can't save anyone who doesn't want to be saved. You guys tried and tried it sounds like, and not just one person but different people so it's obvious that there's a circle that did care, but if he couldn't see it and continued down that path, there's nothing you can do. Like you said, at a certain point they make it hard to be around, and I think it's them trying to cut the ties for themselves so they can do what they want without more hesitation.

I fully accept any "fuck you's" I receive from anyone who's gone through the same thing, those are just my thoughts on it

As much as it sucks, and I've known the guilt that comes from watching it happen, there are lines we can't seem to cross for those we care about. Sometimes people devolve to the point we can't reach them any longer. It sucks, but going down with them isn't a good choice either.

So sorry, man.

6 days ago the dude posts two songs on a new Facebook that I didn't even know about, and both of them are essentially him saying good bye and that we'll all miss him when he's gone. There were just so many signs it's ridiculous. I've never been hit with such an obvious brick heading at me without me doing fucking ANYTHING.

Listening to all the songs I didn't listen to from him these past couple years and my god he was so fucking sad I don't know how I just let this happen. Show your love to your friends, hug them show them you are thinking about them.

God this fucking sucks. I spent the last couple years pushing you away and now all I want is you to jump on your drum set and play old punk songs with me until the sun goes down. I'm so sorry for leaving you to rot in this city alone.

Can someone answer me a semi ethics question, is it wrong/morbid/inappropriate for me to want to know how he died? All I know is that he ended it himself but I don't know the method and I feel awful wanting to know because it's so trivial and doesn't matter, but I just feel like I want to know for some sort of closure, or I guess it is morbid curiosity but my friend and I both thought the same thing, that he'd want us to know and if one of us did it, he'd ask and say " what? well you know we're all thinking it!"

I feel so awful questioning it but I feel like I really want to know.
