VINCENT GALVIN 1983-2008

I'm going to miss my dear friend Vinny so much. I've been missing him for months, but I will never see him again, now. I should've gotten together with him when i had the chance. I hate myself for that.

This was his last bit of work. He produced this Amazing Baby video. It's gorgeous:

One of the longest phone conversations I ever had was with Vinny this past summer. I was walking my bike through three miles of woods at Bear Mountain when he called. He was in Tenafly and was looking for locations to shoot scenes, specifically, a Chinese restaurant. So, I had to direct him through Tenafly, then Englewood, then back and forth. It was crazy! At one point, I thought it would've been easier for him to piok me up from Bear Mountain because that would've been faster than me trying to remember every store on every street. I never did get to see the end product of his shoots.

We'll all miss him.

I just found this out through facebook and cannot believe it.

I met Vinnie through Sarah over a year ago and he was such a pure hearted, beautiful, funny, smart, witty, charming, loveable guy.

The world is much darker place without him, and less cool!

How could someone so bright and talented be taken at such a young age.

Horrible news. I can't believe I'll never see soitgoesnyc pop up in my ichat again.

Vincent Galvin, you are sorely missed.
