IN MEMORIAM MICHAEL C. RUPPERT, February 3, 1951—April 13, 2014. Sunday night following Mike’s Lifeboat Hour radio show, he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. This was not a “fake” suicide. It was very well planned by Mike who gave us few clues but elaborate instructions for how to proceed without him. His wishes were to be cremated, and as of this moment, there are no plans for a memorial service. However, I will be taking his show this coming Sunday night, April 20, and the entire show will be an In Memoriam show for Mike with opportunities for listeners to call in.It was my privilege to have known Mike for 14 years, to have worked with him, to have been mentored by him, and to have supported him in some of his darkest hours, including the more recent ones. I am posting this announcement with the blessing of his partner Jesse Re and his landlord, Jack Martin.Thank you Mike for all of the truth you courageously exposed and for the legacy of truth-telling you left us. Goodbye my friend. Your memory will live in hour hearts forever.

Μόνο όταν μιλάς ψιθυριστά
σ’ ακούνε αυτοί που θέλουν ν’ ακούσουν πραγματικά
Όσο φωνάζεις, απλά κουράζεις και κουράζεσαι
Ψάχνω λόγο να μην είμαι απαθής
στον κόσμο που επιβάλλεται να εκμεταλλευτείς, για να ζεις
Πολύ σοβαρά παίρνω το τσίμπημα στο στήθος μου, μάλλον!
Τα ψυχολογικά μου γυρίσαν αντίστροφα
Όσα σκατά με ταΐσαν στα δύσκολα
αντί να τα φτύσω απλά τα συνήθισα
κι αντί να σε φτύσω απλά σε λυπήθηκα
Δεν υπάρχουν πονηροί
υπάρχουν μόνο τύποι που πήραν πολύ σοβαρά την ηθική τους
και ‘μείναν ταπί
ή συνεχίσαν να ζουν και να μισούν
την στιγμή που πατήσαν στην γη
Όσοι επικροτούν την ψυχρή λογική και δεν έχουν αυτοκτονήσει ήδη είναι παρανοϊκοί
Κι όλοι οι υπόλοιποι είναι κι αυτοί παρανοϊκοί
αλλά περισσότερο συνεπείς στο ψεμα που ενδώσανε για να συνεχιστεί η ζωή
Κάτσε να πάρω μια ανάσα
κάτι δεν πάει καλά
Τελευταία άκουσα πως μπορεί να μου λείπει σεροτονίνη
Μ’ ακόμα κι αν έχω δίκιο
ποιος ο λόγος να σε πείσω
και να μη σε αφήσω πίσω;
Εκεί τουλάχιστον δείχνεις ευτυχισμένος

Μαζί, ολοκληρώνουμε ο ένας τον άλλον. Και μετά από τόσο καιρό, και τόσα πολλά που έχουμε περάσει - αλλά και άλλα τόσα που θα ‘ρθουν, θέλω να συνεχίσω να σε μαθαίνω. Κάθε μέρα και από λίγο.

I’m 87 years old… I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.Harry Dean Stanton

Πήγα να σπάσω πλάκα μαζί σου και έγραψα κάτι που τελικά μ’άρεσε. Και ρε παιδί μου, εν τέλει είναι ωραίο να μου βγάζεις τον ποιητικό μου εαυτό. Οπότε σ’το αφιερώνω.



Και πως να μην προσμένω να κοιμάσαι τα βράδια στα χέρια μου;
