Dusted Emotions

Associate publisher-cum-daily nosediver Erik Lavoie has recently gained notoriety and derision for his conversation skills, or lack thereof. His vacant response to seemingly innocent questions often comes out as a prolonged, starry-eyed 'maaaaayyyyyybeee'. Far from a canned response, this is legitimately the essence of Lavoie: he is perpetually on the fence; half in the closet, half out-- always powdered, though.

Our intrepid whizkid Encyclopedia Brown came up with this great graphic to illustrate how 'maaaybeee' is less an expression of indecisiveness, and more a statement about Lavoie's life. As you can see, he's well past the peak which was the Erik Lavoie issue, and is well into his golden years of decline. Maaaaaaayyyyyybeeeeee........

The Autumn of Erik's life will be a constant, seemingly undending, drawn out, droning vowel- eeeeeeeeeee. He's even signing his e-mails, "e". Like portents?

Damn right green represents hapiness for Erik.

Like green boxes?

it's like he's unaware of everyone else's existence, and only vaguely aware of his own, he just coasts through a thick fog
