Harvey Pekar passed away very early this morning, I just heard about it now.
As anyone looking at the top of this blog will notice, Harvey Pekar’s face is staring out at my blog readers from a story Harvey and I did together a year or so ago. We did a few things together, and we were, at some point in the future, supposed to do some more.
I’m afraid I’m not going to blog much about this today, because I need to take a day or so to digest his passing. One of my heroes, one of the most interesting people I ever met, and aren’t we all lucky that we got to know him, either through his movie, his writing or his simply being here, and loudly refusing to shut up.
Damn, damn, damn.
I’ll give you a proper send off in a day or so, Harve.
