RIP, Tim LaFollette


It was just a week ago that I posted a link to The Popovers‘ free album and told you about how any donations to the Popovers went to band member Tim LaFollette and his battle against the brutal disease known as ALS (i.e., Lou Gehrig’s Disease).  On Tuesday, Tim passed away at the age of 31, surrounded by his family, friends, and his wife, Kaylan.  His time on earth was brief, but he rocked every minute of it.  The Popovers created the theme song to the Savage Love podcast.  Tim, along with the Often Awesome gang, produced an incredible, award-winning web series documentary about ALS and Tim’s experience.  My condolences to Tim’s friends and family and, as Dan Savage said, ALS can go f*ck itself.
