A few weeks ago Gray took on a new job and moved to his new "Corn Crib", wherever that may be. As a career move, Gray didn't have time to continue evaluating tracks for the site, so he chose to step down a couple of weeks ago. zyko's come in again to help us out ("boom-diggity," he'd say), but my deepest respects go out to Gray for his 2+ years of dedicated work to the panel and OCR as a judge and moderator.

I personally learned a lot from Gray about music as well as the community. His ability to interact with everyone and keep drama to a minimum helped us greatly, and I can't honestly think of anyone who hates the guy. I'm sure I speak for everyone on the panel when I wish him the best of luck with his career and hope that we seem him again soon. Thanks for everything you've done here, Gray.

You smellzy punk. :-P

Gray, I wish you good luck to whatever fate might have in store for you.
Hope to talk to you again soon, good chum.

i hate him and i am glad he is gone >:[



Okay, not really. Good luck, fellow. I hope that you arrive at your destination in life without any flat tires or other things that can be used as a metaphor for something bad in life.

GrayLightning was the very first person from OCR to instant message me on AIM, and the first friend I made in this community. I don't know if he'll see this thread, but nevertheless, I wanted to thank him for making this a very special, welcoming place. (And his music kicks ass, too!) Good luck, Gray. You will be missed. :cry:

I think it should be stated here if nowhere else that Graylightning was largely responsible for my appointment to the panel. That's not neccesarily a great thing in it of itself, though.

There were seasons where he literally did the work of two or three judges, plus he was one of the few "nice" people in this community that I could talk to without getting a headache. His absence will be felt for a long time.

Gray, you've left a large, discolored shadow on the panel, in our hearts, and on our wangs (where applicable).

Miss you bro.

I taught Gray how to use FruityLoops :3

Other than that I don't really talk to him much.

i still remember when larry went to unmod posting in most of the threads the following quote: "less liontamer, more liontamer, more judgehate". then gray helped him with this joke saying "larry is bringing back the golden age of unmod".

and after this fact most of unmod users started angry with both. gorveg created a thread called "ban liontamer and graylightning". he said they posted that joke in almost 17 threads.

well and finally, both stopped ROFLING. :lol:


as for Gray, i've talked to him for feedback and such. He's a great guy. Particularly one of my best friends in this community. He was always good in what he did, never caused trouble and audiences loved him. I think Larry summarized him well.

i lost a true friend.

Farewell, Graylightning.

A remixer, a judge, a chessmaster. But most of all, a friend.
I'm going to miss you.

Gray was awesome. Well, I assume he still is, but it's a shame he'll have to take his awesomeness somewhere else. He was levelheaded even under fire, and a huge asset to this community. He will be missed.

AND WE STILL DON'T FUCKING KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE! GAH!

I BET HE LOOKS LIKE A DUDE!

Sad to see Gray go, since he was probably my most direct connection to the inner workings of OCR, and a really nice guy. We'll miss ya, dude.

Gray was a fool to challenge me. His death will serve as a fitting example to the rest of his miserable little caucassian Resistance.

From what I understand, he doesn't have time to evaluate remixes... but he better keep remixing!

And if you're reading this, Gray:

YOU BETTER KEEP REMIXING!

What's up dude, we all knew GL was off to bigger and better things.

Don't weep for the guy and long for his presence. Be glad he's out doing what he's doing.
