Be Like Jabronisaur Day (July 16, 2010)
~Good Deeds, Spreading Love, Be Positive~

Be Like Jabronisaur Day (July 16, 2010) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u7Z5l2gXLo#ws) *

In memory of Tim Marks, Be Like Jabronisaur Day (July 16, 2010) is formed for a day to pay tribute to our homie Jabronisaur by Doing Good Deeds, Spreading Love, Being Positive~ just like he was in real life and online at JPHiP.com

We lost Jabronisaur one year ago on July 16, 2009 (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=19712.0) - right after our successful meet up at Anime Expo, where JPHiP pimped like no other, gathering 30+ in a room at a time, meeting dozens more along the way. At the forefront, was Jabronisaur whom as a member of the Crack Staff, broke down barriers and mingled with fans from all over the world and net - making them feel like family. He exemplified what it was to be a HiPster, and made us so proud he was just one of our homies.

Jab will never be forgotten and on this day July 16th we shall pay tribute to everything he stands for!! :jphip:

The When & How You start July 16, 2010, 12 AM your time. Do as many Good Deeds, Acts of Love and Positivity towards your fellow HiPsters, friends, family, and random strangers as possible! Post about it in this thread and everywhere to help keep the "Be Like Jabronisaur Day" movement going!

It doesn't matter how big or small. Examples can be like praising someones thread or post with constructive feedback, being nice in IRC, helping an old lady with the door, giving time to charity, making people feel part of the community by asking them how they are - stuff Jabronisaur did in his every day life.

Our goal is to have the spirit of Jabronisaur live on forever with every good deed we do, in a positive loving action and for this to be an annual JPHiP Event.

OUR HOMEBOY JABRONISAUR, FOREVER REMEMBERED.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip00324.jpg)

We'll be re-running Jabronisaur's radio show "Beware the JabberJocky!" (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=14904.0) all day, and if you want to drop a message feel free to record and PM to daigong. Thanks kuro for contributing in advance!

Thank yous to The Crack Staff - Masa, shirenu, lollipopgirl, tamatron - and kuno_thunder for the brainstorming. We got inspiration from Jaeson Ma's 365 Days of Love (http://jaesonma.com/) and Amy Crawford's Good Deed Day (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Good-Deed-Day-June-11th/295456318919?v=wall#!/pages/Good-Deed-Day-June-11th/295456318919?v=info), and just the general need to bring a day to honor Jab in the most positive way.

SPREAD THE WORD! LET'S DO THIS FOR JAB!

:hipheart:
One Love.

The JPH!P Crack Staff

* The footage you see is from July 5, 2009 - at the Mayfair Hotel in Los Angeles, CA - when we were sending our homeboy Flyp off.

I never got the opportunity to know Jabronisaur, but from what I've heard of him- he seems like an amazing man!
I'll try my best to help honour his memory this next couple of days! ; u ;

Jab... That video made me cry... am still crying right now :cry: :cry: :cry: Such a good man, a friendly man, a great man :cry: :cry: I miss him so much... :(

But I will participate on that day, friday. I'll treat my co-workers extra nicely, hug my family and friends as often as I can all day and maybe not go out to the bar that night, prob cry if drink anyhow.

I'll never forget Jab, I sure was fond of that man... me crying right now reminds me of that

is a very sad day for me because jabby left us the same day my mom passed away... it sucks but in the positive side it'll be very hard to forget about him so i'll pray for him.

^ *hugs shura* This is why we all come together and give each other the strength we need :heart:

Its Jabby day here and being stuck in a pretty much empty lab makes good deeds a little hard atm but, on the way to uni:

* Asked the cashier how their day was... they didn't really say much lol
* Thanked the driver of the car that stopped to let me across the road
* Smiled at a random stranger... tried smiling at more but my smile is awkward and I don't think they got the point >.<

Post by: Deft-Monkey on July 16, 2010, 04:24:10 AM
Just did some little things when I went out to post my Secret Penpal letter:

* Smiled and said "Thank you" to a man on a tractor who let me cross the road.
* Exchanged a few words of smalltalk with the man who helped me post my letter. He was friendly :)

I also gave my dad a very cheery "Good morning" when I went downstairs to eat breakfast. Hope it made his work seem a little easier with that. I've got an English lesson today at 5:30, so I'll see what else I can do.

Great examples HiPstaz! Thank you Deft, lollipopgirl, shura, Meania, Kream, Tyler, Rei, advent for the commitment to the cause. It really makes me happy to see people throwing up sigs and tuning into the Jabronisaur Radio Marathon, playing all day - starting 4 AM EST - when JPHiP Forum time = July 16.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother shura. We gather strength and carry on the legacies of those who we've lost, I know I have - every single day. Their spirit carries on, because we continue living the life they would want us to live.

No doubt Rei, Jab is a natural comedian, his timing and photo bombing PRICELESS! :grin:

For those new to JPH!P, this is just a snapshot of what happens when u get more than one HiPSter in a room. This group at Anime Expo, consisted of members from Day 1 to guys we just met, all in the name of having fun! Birthday cards we signed for our fellow HiPstaz:

Jabronisaur narrates Rei-chan's birthday card YAY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlEhRVtsEiA#ws)
Jabronisaur narrates shirenu's birthday card (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgDk8gYzbII#ws)

It's what JPHiP is all about :)

So totally, there's much for us to do. Take time to talk to that friend you haven't contacted in a long time or donate some time to charity. The more people who take part, the more we honor our homie Jabronisaur. :jphip:

Bought my last participant today a chocolate to thank them for helping me out, chatted with them for an hour and half afterwards as well.
Jabby made time for everyone, bought time I did the same!

This is so inspirational, seriously. And it only shows what a great community JPH!P really is~

I'll see what I can do to put in the extra effort to be warm, calm, and compassionate towards everyone I meet today, though I have kept this in mind ever since the thread first popped up. In fact, on that same day after reading the thread I randomly helped a stranger parallel park his car. It only took a few minutes of my time, and I'm sure it made his day a bit brighter, it certainly cheered me up knowing that I was able to help out.

Hello All!  On  behalf of my parents and myself I would truly like to thank you all for the tribute to my little Bro Tim!  I think it's great that you all saw the best in him.  He was a great brother and a great friend.  The world could be a lesser place with out him except that all of you remember him in spirit and choose to carry on his memory!  I don't have the words to thank you for that.  Tim loved you guys and you were a big part of his life.  My parents and I are SO happy you chose to remember him this day.

JAB will live on in our memories!

Much Love to you all!

Good deeds done for the day so far:

-Posted a few messages on facebook to friends I haven't really told how much their friendship means to me.
-Bought donuts for co-workers and handed them out one by one to all 12 of them, the looks on their faces was amazing.
-Did the same donut routine and handed them out to workers at my local video store, because they always chat with me for afew minutes whenever I rent a movie, and I wanted to be nice to them so I did just that.
-hugged parents, both of them long and hard.
-held doors open for people constantly
-smiled at random people.

and one of the things I did after hearing a song: "Would you call old friends you never see."
-One of my best friends, both of us drifted apart, but it was her birthday yesterday. I didn't get her any thing or see her, because I didn't want to bother her. But because of the special day it is today and what I'm striving for today, I got her a birthday card and said happy birthday to her in Cantonese *her native language*. First words we spoke in nearly 5 years...

But I did all of this today because of Jab

This evening I'm going to do more good deeds, just waiting till that time and will post more.

I bought my nephews a toy each, helped my sister out with a problem she had on her laptop, helped my parents with the shopping and made coffee for the family. I wanted to get out there and actually do something for someone other than my family though, but the opportunities just didn't arise. I'm strongly considering the prospect of donating blood, which I've never done before.

I can't believe it's been this long. I still miss Jabs and our talks about FFIV and Zeppelin.

Today I helped an old lady with a computer at the library who really had no idea how to work one. I thought she was maybe a non-traditional student working on a paper... turns out? She just loves to write and was trying to write a short story to send to a publisher. She sat and talked to me about her hobby and how in love with it she was and it totally warmed my heart, especially since I got to help her get her things situated. I ended up not charging her for her prints because she was just that awesome.

I also helped a friend feel better after a "friend break-up." Those are always harsh.

I gave Minier-Wheat words of encouragement, because she's stuck at yearbook camp and is miserable.

I got in a bad mood, but then remembered the day and immediately began working on it. <3

Miss you, Tim.

So yesterday, I did a few more things in the evening:

* Told my English tutor that she could take a break by missing out on my lesson next week because she's heavily overworked.
* The I was being chummy with the guy sharing my lesson yesterday who I'd never met before.
* Spent time with my sister and mother, watching television and chatting with them in the living room.
* Gave my dog a good dose of TLC
* Sent a happy message to someone on formspring who I don't think likes me very much. I linked a couple of videos as well. Her response was basically, "LOL what the hell is this?!" I sent her another message telling her about the significance of today and she replied saying that now knowing that, she'd go and watch the videos. I hope they brightened her day a little because her response made me feel really good inside.

It's not Friday 16th anymore where I am, but I'm still going to make the effort to keep going and extend my friendship and positivity to others. For you, Jab :jphip:

Post by: cool_kickin_dude on July 18, 2010, 06:43:17 AM
well, it took me a while to find the words to post, but here goes...

I have to admit, I actually was dreading this day. I hated it, but I knew I had to move on..

I was at a restaurant tonight waiting for my food for 30 minutes, but it gave me time to reflect on what had happened the past couple of months. It actually began to turn for me right now. I looked around and saw the people talking to others and it made me realize one thing: It feels good to be alive right now.

You see, after Jab died, it really dawned on me that last night when me, dai, BigFreaky and him were in the room, none of us realized it was the last time I would see him. I even thought part of it was my fault when he died. Sure, I saw him a couple of times before that night, but I was so angry and selfish of myself because of what happened at AX(not getting autographs was one of the factors), that I didn't want to enjoy the rest of the time. It made me not want to go to AX this year, but I did.

The thing was:I had a great time. There was one reason why:It was all because of Jab.

Even though we didn't have many people, the point is, I had a great time and not let some of the bad things let me down. It made me even become an AKB48 fan as well.

But the thing that made it good was on the last night, I went to the Mayfair a couple of times after midnight and just relived some of the memories of the previous year(our Slurpee run). I remember walking back to my hotel and getting ready to leave, thinking one thing:Jab wanted me to enjoy myself and mostly, he wanted me to keep going in life.

As I'm writing this now, the whole thing is coming back into my mind again. What had been a personal tragedy for me, became retribution. I can now go on, knowing I made Jab proud by enjoying life and positivity the way it supposed to be.

So thank you Tim and everybody here at JPH!P. I took your positivity for granted for almost a year with fake smiles, but no more. Now, I can move foward and celebrate your legacy. Love you guys! :jphip:

Post by: J-Triumf on July 18, 2010, 01:59:12 PM
400th post...couldn't decide where to spend it, so I decided to come here.

I'm another person who didn't "exist" when Jab was still around, so perhaps I'm not as directly impacted as most everyone else here, but seeing how much of an impression he's left on this site and everyone who knew him gives me a very positive impression of the man and what it would've been like if I had the chance to meet him. I've never lost anyone due to death, so I can only imagine how devastating this loss was, especially considering how awesome this place is now, but I have lost a lot of friends in recent years due to petty squabbles and misunderstandings that got out of hand, so this is something that really puts my own life into perspective and gives me something to strive for regarding future friendships.

I haven't really been out of the house much lately, so I honored his memory a bit late by only doing something yesterday. I visited my grandfather and took him to a hardware store so he could buy some things he needed for his kitchen sink and look for other stuff. Even though my cousin who lives in the same house as him was home and should have been available for this kind of thing, said cousin was still asleep into the late afternoon, so I stepped up in his "absence", and it was only fitting I did so since my grandfather really enjoys riding in my car. In retrospect I really didn't do much (or at least it feels that way), but small things like that are all my grandfather asks of others nowadays, so it was the least I could do for someone else.

RIP Jabronisaur. I wish I could've known you or honored you better, but at the very least I wanna thank you for helping to build such a great and welcoming community here at JPH!P. :jphip:

Atta boy CKD. I'm glad Jab and the JPH!P Mentality has gotten through to you. No more tears man! Sometimes it takes the hard way to realize that what is good for you is right in front of you. I challenge you to find another community that has really drilled the idea of being positive into your head. Boy, welcome to the road to redemption. Life is what YOU make of it. Keep it up dude!

Indeed, mode, JTRI, Deft - just taking a little time for our friends and family instead of just fapping away at porn goes a long way. Next thing you know it'll be like one month, then two months, two years since u last talked to that friend. I made my efforts with  twitter and facebook messages lol, and it felt good. Too bad I got drunk lol

I learned a lot from Jabronisaur, writerserenyty - and those who didn't get to know him, he lives on through his posts, videos, and radio shows and through the memories from those who knew him. ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS JAB!! with every positive action and good deed, we make him proud. It wasn't Jab never had problems himself, but he always was strong. In 2008, we were supposed to meet up in Florida, but he couldn't make it because his brother was sick. Jab held his family together, like a rock. Yet through the ordeal, he had the time to give us suggestions of where to go in Florida and always had messages of encouragement. Always a big presence on the forums and esp. IRC. Hell, Jab kept me in my place whenever I would go too crazy XD Like when I played maliciel's karaoke songs, Jab was like "Stop embarrassing him" and was pissed, so I vowed never to do it again. Jab made daigong a better man, and JPHiP a better place.

So no matter how big or small, just making one person happy is the step to the world being a better place. I'm a preach it, and Jab will tease me, but he will be there right by my side waving the :hipheart: flag!

JPHiP BABY! Keep The Jab Movement going!! You can check out:

That's really awesome ckd. Keep on this path, I think it is a good one for you. :) I'm also glad you were able to enjoy AKB48 this year. I saw you after you got your autographs and you were ecstatic. Nice job! :thumbup Don't forget to have a peek at SKE48, too. ;) :thumbup I'm glad to see you doing better. To be perfectly honest, I see a lot of myself in you sometimes. We're similar in that we're a bit stubborn to get positive, yet can be pretty easy to get down emotionally. Both of us just gotta keep fighting, having fun with H!P, AKB, idols, and most importantly our friends here, and not let negativity drag us into the pits. It ain't worth it, man. We're better than that shit, and I'm happy you are starting to see that.

I don't have much to say about Jab since a lot of my jphip "life" has been in the AKBar. I saw his postings and he seemed like a cool guy but I don't think we ever corresponded. I saw him in passing at AX09 a few times and he looked like he was having a blast with you guys. One thing I see clearly from these responses is how instrumental he was to the jphip formula. His positivity obviously had a downright profound impact on many, if not most, veterans on this forum. I'm sure that we're all aware of how this Japanese and Korean pop fandom can be. Heck, any fandom on the internet. People are quick to snap and troll and argue over hobbies that are supposed to be fun distractions from our every day lives and bring us a little bit of joy, not divide us or make us fight. This site is different. Here, people tend to coexist and share thoughts in a fun way, yet we can also have more serious discussions over the idols and music of our choice, sometimes agreeing sometimes not, but be civil about it and learn and grow. That's something I really like, and people like Jab made that atmosphere come to life. That's how it seems to me anyway.

I think my best way of honoring a guy like Jab is to try and have fun with and keep that atmosphere going by chatting it up, sharing AKB thoughts and media, and maybe even the occasional insane poll in the perv section. :lol:

My thoughts remain with his friends and family.
