RIP Andy “Kitten” Zebrowitz

The end is the begnining is the end is the begining is the end…

ZEBROWITZ, Andrew ANDREW (ANDY) MORRIS ZEBROWITZ Andrew (Andy) Morris Zebrowitz, born July 27, 1979, passed away Sunday evening, February 14, 2010 at Emory University Hospital. He is survived by his mother Cyndy Newcomer, father Michael Zebrowitz, sister Robin Zebrowitz Harpak and her husband Dotan Zebrowitz Harpak, stepfather Robert E. Newcomer, stepmother Kathy Aldan, grandmother Rosalyn Felheimer, and aunts, uncles, and cousins, all of whom loved him deeply. Andy lived in East Cobb County for 29 of his 30 years and graduated from Pope High School. All his life, Andy marched to the beat of his own drummer, amusing (and sometimes irritating) his family and his many friends with his wry humor and mischievous pranks. Andy was known for his deep, melodious voice and his unique way of expressing himself, both verbally and in writing. Known to his friends as “Kitten,” Andy was a very talented writer who entertained people from all over the world with his website, http://www.mirrorshades.org, filled with his unique observations and his rants against conformity as well as his specially chosen musical selections. As a last generous gesture, Andy chose to be an organ donor, so that others may experience the joy of life that was his for nearly 31 years. The family wishes to express its gratitude to the amazing medical personnel at Emory University Hospital’s Neuro ICU. A funeral service will be conducted by Rabbi Steven Lebow on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 4 p.m. at Sandy Springs Chapel, 136 Mount Vernon Hwy, Sandy Springs, GA, followed by a graveside service at Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mount Vernon Hwy. Following the funeral, the family will receive guests at the Newcomer residence. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Humane Society of the United States, http://www.humanesociety.org. “The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long.”

Quote from the family placed obituary.

If you don’t know, he ran Mirrorshades, contributed to The Walled City, and if you’re saying HAY WAS HE A CYBURPUINK? The answer is yeah, he enjoyed that style and William Gibson and we enjoyed HACKERS together while docking. Maybe not the last part. He also frequented Shampoo and did some of their music and shows on Wednesdays. He also posted to K5. The community has already embraced it.

Dead City Radio covers it here.

It’s sort of strange to have a literal tape of someone laying around in terms of what they published online full well knowing they’re dead, it’ll never be updated, and no-ones got the password to close it down. Like everything else, it just sits around until it’s officially dead media.
