Finger Food Friday...Loss of a Brother

Hey all you wierdos, freaks, and lurkers. Fingers at the keys, so it must be that time agian...time to share my life and times on this big blue planet.

Well, first let me say i got a call on Thursday at about 8:oo pm, from a long time brother lumpy. You remember him from the great Tony Balgone ass story... Lumpy called to tell me that another long time brother, Mark Mccluskey is dead. What the fuck man...I've known Mark since jr.high school. He was a big son of a bitch, about 6'7", 270 lbs. Mark always rode a k model sporty in high sckool, and later a Triumph chopper that i did a bunch of work on. What Mark really loved was getting loaded, and for awile in the mid 80's we hung tight. Cocaine and vodka trips every weekend are the times i remember...like it was yesterday. Mark t-boned a jeep last year on his evo chopper. Shortly after that, Fudd blew his brains out with a 50 cal. black powder pistol right the fuck in front of Mark. At the time, Mark and Fudd were battling a long addiction to herion. Fudd lost, but Mark saw the light and cleaned himself up. That's what pisses me off...I just talked to him on wednesday. We bullshitted about getting his chop back up. wtf......

I've lost a lot of brothers in this life and dont know if i could even fit them all into one Finger Food Friday post, but when somebody is coming back from being down for so long its a tough one to handle. I ask myself a lot lately "what else is there?" I've rode it, broke it, fixed it, and even built it. Fuck-an-A man, I bleed on them...what's left? Got to be more. I always need more. Mark is with Fudd agian, the rotten two running amuck in a place we will be one day. As for me, I'm not done pisssing people off yet. Though i think of it often, death sucks. I just wrote last week "DEATH ONLY CLOSES A MANS REPUTATION AND DETERMINES IT GOOD OR BAD". Mark and Fudd had good ones to me, and that is all that counts for me.........

With Mark's passing, I am reminded of the night I got my nose and jaw broke, thanks to to him. So, its like 1978, and winter in the great city of Buffalo with about 2 feet of snow on the ground. Me Mark and Tony Sacco, another lunatic, are in south Buffalo looking for some dope. Not a kool place to be in those years, since they didn't like any of us from west Seneca ("fisher court", our neighborhood). Any fucking way, we score some pot from the hippies in south Buffalo. Before the black people started selling dope, you used to go find hippies. Man things really changed. So we're almost out of dodge when we come to a stoplight, and the car in front of is stuck in what the plow truck just left behind. That  was all it took to piss Mark right the fuck off, so he starts sceaming at the driver who turns out to be a chick. So now its "come on you stupid cunt, drive!". I tell Tony, who's driving, to just go around the dumb bitch. So of course, without looking, Tony smashes into the car behind us. That just happened to be a car load of (yep you guessed it) south Buffalo boys. In my life, things go from good, to bad, real fast. So this was no different scene. Well, Mark's attention now was directed to the rear of the Olds 88, where he now was in a sceaming match with the passenger. He jumps out, only to be followed by the word "FUCK"! I new that wasn't good. Tony jumps out and I never made it out the door. As I was about to get out and join in the festivites, some motherfucker smashes me in the face with a tire iron. I'm out cold... The next thing I know, some stupid cop is arresting me. I have no clue what happened...I was just waking up. Tony suffered a broken arm, Mark got a broken nose, and I got my jaw, nose, and eye socket broken... all thanks to Mark's big mouth. After a couple of weeks, a bunch of us went to thier sckool and got them in history class.

Mark my brother, we will get that evo chopper back together! MARK'S LAST RIDE... I miss you my brother.

P.S. Keep your mouth shut up there and tell Fudd,Dave Schicktil, Johnny Rayn,Hugo,Whitey,Spaceman, Big Al,Booster,Bradly da polisher,Nutcase,Wierd,Big Bob,and all of our brothers I said "hello". You are all in my thoughts.........make sure I'm on the guest list, alright.................

A sad day in Fingers' world...
BIG LOVE/RESECT
