Global Gav

So Im actually just getting ready to leave my house now and meet up with Addy and hit up a couple house jams.

But then Gavin (the founder of Remix) signs in on MSN from half way across the globe. He's in Paris right now, the second last stop of his 5 (or so) destination adventure (Europe and Asia) thats taken place over the last 2 weeks...He lands in Toronto tomorrow night, rests a day and I think he's off again to South America. This is why we call him "Global Gav." He's always traveling.

Anyways, I havent spoke to him since he left, and everything was all fine at that point. My breakdown happened 2 days after he left, not knowing what happened, he asked me about a particular subject and I told him.

We landed on the issue of me being idealistic...and this is how the convo went...

global gav - it's a friday night in paris! says:

ahhhh...idealism.

the ruination of good men. the only thing necessary for great ones.


WILL•E says:


so does that mean...i should be a realist now



global gav - it's a friday night in paris! says:


no

because you have the makings of a great man

and you can never give that up to simply be good.

with that said though, you can never give up being good to be great.
and that's the balance



Thanks Gav...

If you guys ever wonder where I get most of my idealistic mentality, my motivation and inspiration from...its him. If anyone has ever taught me that you can make a change in this lifetime and that you make a difference to those around you...its Gavin. And Im sure I speak on the behalf of everyone that has met him.

Its an honor to have you play a role in my life.

...sigh...hmwk now? or house parties...fuckin a...

In case none of you guys ever read the comments, this is what what Bryan wrote about Gavin.

Gavin saved my life.

he'LL never get as much praise and recognition as he deserves although he would never expect it from anyone. he was in XXL Magazine when we were still in high school for starting the first hip-hop based rec center in north america - InnerCityVisions - here in Toronto. He is the Founder of TheRemixProject, has supported countless young people through their struggles with court cases and the legal system - myself included - coming to trials, helping with community hours, and giving guidance. He is literally a father figure to many of us - and he's younger than i am.

Those of you who are reading this from outside of our city and trying to comprehend what kind of affect he has had on 100's, even 1000's of youth and adults alike in Toronto alone, cannot understand through reading my lil bro's blog. Gavin's reach has no borders and has never been shown limits. My love and respect for him is too much to explain in a comment.

Real recognize likewise... fuckin' a.

- I believe fuckin' A is short for fuckin' asshole, or fucking ass. Not as in boning bum, but as in - holy fucking ass. not as in bum, but as in bone head. K, this is off topic. and so is the "get at me" comment. should found a better post to holla at willy at than one about Gav.

peace.
