Elmo

Post by Cadillac_ »

After Sine.wav's wonderful post on trontimes, and having seen Elmo's own dad make a post on it, i was motivated to do something.
Here i ask for everyone that reads this to post one word that describes Elmo to you. One word! Thats it! Feel free to comment after but i only want one word.
I will be using the complete list in a special project that i share later.

Thanks for your consideration.

I will start.
Honest.

Sorry for posting it here, but since it's a topic about Elmo and some might not read the trontimes:
His dad asked how he found the game and why he called himself "Elmo". So if anyone knows about it, tell him.

Fun!

Yesterday I sat here for 20 minutes without being able to articulate my thoughts, leave alone putting them in one single word. I don't want to take part in a competition about who said the best, most sensitive thing about Elmo (I didn't know his real name when he was still alive and to me, it feels somewhat wrong to use it without his approval), even though I respect what everyone has said here with the best intentions. Elmo was a kind young man, and as his death shows, he also had problems and flaws that, ultimately, also made him interesting and human and set him apart from the rest. He was irreplaceable. I'm still not sure how to express this in the proper way - I personally don't think it's right to idealize everything because it seems like turning a blind eye to the fact that such tendencies don't come out of nowhere and something is wrong with our ideals in the first place. I'm probably preaching to the choir here, though.

No, I don't mean we shouldn't praise Elmo or his legacy, just that to me, a real eulogy can't consist of one word and that we all should try to learn something out of this, if possible - and in order to accomplish that, one should not even begin to construct an icon, but try to remember the human. I can't help thinking that what happened to him could happen to any of us (didn't you ever wonder how many of the players here had issues they didn't want to talk about, or happen to be vulnerable in ways you never imagined? I'm trying to lay out my own thought process here...to paraphrase what Overrated said on Orion's blog, shouldn't we ask ourselves if there was anything we could have done? Is that question always unanswerable? I don't know the answer, but that question is relevant to me, as I was critical of him as well, and I think it's right to ask it - I know this doesn't apply to everyone here) - if I had to predict something like this for every player I know, he would have been on the bottom of the list. Yes, he was sweet, engaged and dedicated - and all this praise, as rightful as it is, makes his loss only more depressing, together with this question that will probably remain forever unanswered.
