Twitter in memoriam for Dave Brockie of GWAR

I follow Xeni's twitter account and recommend it to almost anybody. It's usually a good, always interesting feed, since she's someone who lives an interesting life (she co-founded and works at boingboing.net, is a cancer survivor/fighter, and her bf is Miles O'Brien of CNN, who recently lost his arm, so she is rarely lost for things to tweet about). But an hour or two ago she had a long string of tweets about Dave Brockie, the leader of GWAR, who was found dead today. Turns out she knew him when she was a 14-yo runaway and he was very kind to her while trying to get his band started. I would recommend reading the tweets; together they are pretty affecting.
