What's fucked up is the fact that just a few hours before his death people were reporting that he died, which was cast off as a hoax. And when he actually passed away, everyone thought it was just another hoax.

RIP Dio.

Yeah... ironically I was in a conversation on Friday night about how awesome he was. My sister is now saying I jinxed it... I blame my brother-in-law since he started it.

I was brutally harassed by my co-workers for not knowing who this guy was...

Only to realize that I heard the music, just never paid attention to the "who" and just listened to the songs.

Obviously, he will be missed.

What? You didn't automatically know who Dio was?! *shun*

Just kidding. Yeah, a lot of people don't know the name at first... but you play a bit of Holy Diver or say "the guy in the poster in the Tenacious D movie" and they go 'Oh, him? He died? Man, that blows, he was awesome!"

It's like you're freaking psychic or something. That's pretty much exactly what happened...

WBC is planning to protest.

I hope they get their asses kicked by a bunch of pissed off metalheads!

Isn't it it ironic that their website is "godhatesfags" when God is *supposed* to love everyone, even "sinners"?

Don't think I can take these guys seriously.

Besides, Dio IS worty of worship.

The thing I hate about these people is that they are obnoxious as all Hell (irony?) and won't shut up for a second when they're protesting.

Seriously, the only parts of the Bible they read are like 3 verses from Leviticus and they blow them way out of proportion. They also never read the chapter where God sent his only Dio to save mankind...

It's weird. I'd seen so many documentaries about the WBC, read several things about them, and all that.

And then I went to a MASSIVE counter-protest against them and walked up and interviewed Shirley Phelps-Roper just before the protest really took off. I even walked with her from her van, with her daughters, asking her how her father was and everything. She was REALLY, REALLY nice and even invited me to come talk to her after she put on her bloodied American flag and tattered rainbow one, which she hung from the old glory she was wearing as apron.

When I asked her why they picket these sorts of things (they were picketing a local high school at the time), she pretty much answered, "We picket, therefore we are."

The WBC isn't out to spread the good news, ask people to repent so they can save their souls, or any of it. They just go out and picket, to attract attention and try to make people feel bad. AND THAT'S IT.

Seriously, they aren't worth even discussing, because all it does is forward their message and make people mad, visit their site, and perhaps even pick fights with them.

Do you know how they get a lot of the money they use to fly around the world to picket for things? Suing people. Shirley is an attorney for the family's law firm. You fight them, say or do something particularly inappropriate (threaten violence, hit them, throw things at them, etc), they will get you in court and they will win. Somebody just tried to get them in court for mental anguish because they picketed his son's military funeral, and he ended up paying THEIR court fees.


Well, enough of this talk of them.

Thank you, Dio, for giving us an international symbol for rocking out, even though you meant it as protection from the evil eye. You rocked, good sir. We salute you.
