Sorry For Your Loss but Do You Still Have My Copy of “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water?”

Hey I really hope you’re doing alright, seriously I am so sorry for your loss. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. You’re like a brother to me so whatever you need don’t give it a second though. I’m here for you, my family is here for you in this dark, terrible time of need.

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you, how long has it been? Oh, and no big deal, but if you have the chance can I just get my copy of Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water back?

I hate to bring it up like this, but since we’re all back home and I know the circumstances aren’t great but it’s bringing back memories and I’d really like that CD back.

Again, not a huge deal at all, but, you know. I can’t even wrap my head around how hard this is for you, it’s hard for me too, I was close to them as well. I guess this is one of those times where tragedy can bring people together? I know that sounds weird or cliche but it feels right. It feels right to reconnect and yeah I mean while we’re here if you still have that CD, I think it was in your mom’s house last time I came over in your old bedroom. I’m sure you’re gonna be cleaning out the house anyway because, yeah, so if you come across it just let me know.

It really pains me to say this but it’s just not the same to stream it on Spotify, like the nostalgia and everything. The intro track where the alien voice says “Limp Bizkit is in the house” honestly just hits different on a CD the way it was meant to be played and experienced.

We can still listen to it together, I mean, I’m sure you’ll have plenty of free time once you’re done dealing with everything. No rush, just saying that’s chill, like you can still listen to it.

It’s such a good record, and I hate to bring it up at a time like this, but it’s just so good and I’ve had ‘Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle)’ stuck in my head the entire trip up to the funeral like, I don’t know, maybe I could kill two birds with one stone and go to the funeral and grab that too.

Honestly I can even grab it myself, I remember what shelf you left it on, it’s right by my copy of Final Fantasy 8 that I let you borrow but that’s not a huge deal right now if you still wanna play that?

I love you and miss you and I’m sorry I haven’t been there for you as much as I should have been so like I get it if you’re upset or whatever or busy with funeral stuff and next of kin stuff and executing the will and cleaning and whatnot so no rush but at the same time I have to get back to the city for work on Monday so no rush just kind of if you have the chance I really would love to listen to it on my drive back cause there’s really not a bad song on that record and the one remix with DMX, dude Rest In Peace DMX too. Man, how rough was that news?

Alright I’ll let you get back to playing host, but just let me know about the CD, I can swing by tomorrow the burial should be done by like what? 1? 2 pm?

Are they doing them all at once? Cause I know your mom already had the plot but your wife and two daughters? That was kind of a surprise, you gonna bury them all at once or like kind of bounce between?

Sorry not trying to be nosy! Just let me know about that CD.
