It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you of the passing today of Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan. Jimmy was not only one of the world's best drummers, but more importantly he was our best friend and brother. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy's family and we hope that you will respect their privacy during this difficult time.

Jimmy you are forever in our hearts.
We love you.

Twenty Oh Nine

What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
Graduated university with an Honours degree. Sold my soul to the Dev — I mean, gover — wait, I DO mean Devil. Went for a 4-day OBS challenge and jumped off a platform fifteen feet in the air.

The Many Ways to Kill Bella in New Moon

  14. She trips over her own feet in the fountain, cracks her head against the edge, and drowns.

  15. When Edward takes off his shirt, the parade (made up of Twihards) surges forward to catch a glimpse of his sparkliness, and she is trampled in the ensuing crush.

  12. It is perfectly normal to be bipolar, manic depressive and suicidal.

  13. Jacob's abs can be used for washing your laundry.

  16. 'Facepunch' is a movie worth making.
