Does anybody know where on the internet the book was that some of his family/relatives/friends put together of some of his thoughts on life and what not?  I remember it had been posted here a long time ago, but at the time I didn't have the resources to purchase it, and was wondering if anybody still knew anything about that or not?

I didn't have a chance to buy this when it was first linked and I've been meaning to so I'm grabbing this right now.

Was it sort of similiar to the current one but with the title? I have that one.
I meant to talk more about the book with someone or here or somewhere... because it's a good book. It's been awhile i read it but i'm pretty glad something like this got made from his sketches.

I assume the gravestone  in the Chain Game marked "RIP The Man of Superman" is a memorial of sorts.It's not been touched.
Everyone has the right to be himself; wise men know how to,when, and whether to navigate the boundary between their rights and those of others when they collide.

I regret not getting to know Steel on a personal level at all, but it's very nice to see that he continues to be remembered and brought up here.

I think about death a lot, probably a lot more than I should. It scares the bejesus out me, thinking about how I will just one day cease to exist, won't even have a conscious mind any longer (this concept is impossible for me to grasp and frightens me). Because of that it scares me to think "how do we possibly live on after death?" but then I see things like this birthday topic to one of our most notable members to ever grace the forums, and it makes me smile. I realize that this is how you live on after death, and this is what remembering people is all about.

Steel was pretty darn great, and so are you guys.

this is weird to say about an internet person i really barely knew, but steel had a huge impact on me... huge. i was younger then, and so i was easily influenced i guess, but looking back today, i honestly feel he was a huge influence on who i am today.... he tought me to think critically, to look at things differently... he introduced me to my absolute FAVORITE BOOK infinite jest. fuck he single handedly ignited my love of reading in general. i am truly a much better person for knowing him. BECAUSE i knew him. if i hadnt.... i really, really believe i am so different today... for the worse... i wish i had told him these things.... i didnt post much after his death, for loss of words i guess, and these are the things i wish i said then. i suppose its better to say them late then never. if there is a heaven i cant wait to dap that nigga......

im sorry god i am drunk.
