RIP Bozlinger


Earlier this morning I learned that our friend and OG Toilet pal Bozlinger passed away last night. We posted the news on Facebook, but in case you don’t follow us on FB but knew Boz from the MetalSucks days, we wanted to let you know. Join us in honoring his memory.

I didn’t know Boz as well as some of the other members of our community, but I think he’d want to be remembered for his sense of humor and for his gothic/romantic sensibilities. If you know of something he liked, please share it in the comments. See you on the other side, Boz.

    We connected over pictures of our dogs….great dude. RIP brother….

    • EsusMoose

      His dog seemed silly

      • Lacertilian

        Steve seemed cool as shit.
        Even when he was shitting on the floor.

        • EsusMoose

          He was also a cold hearted bastard

          • The W.

            That reminds me of our Google hangout when Steve took a dump and Boz just let it sit there for a couple hours.

          • EsusMoose

            It’s what I always think about when Boz or his dog get brought up, the fact he just let it sit there for hours and even commenting that it smells. It seemed so strange but makes me laugh every time

          • Lacertilian

            Just kept saying “fuck steve” over and over..

          • Lacertilian

            he had a funny bark

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        Yea he said (Steve) was anxious, my Dachshund woody is too. I think me and James were too…lol!

  • RIP Boz. You can draw 4 with the gods now.

  • RIP Boz. The G+ hangouts I managed to get in with you will have a special place in my heart.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Remember W. asking him what the significance of the “Draw 4” thing was? And he responded: “I dunno man, I’m just fucking weird.” That was a blast.

      • Dagon

        I read that with his voice.

      • Stockhausen

        I loved that. The draw 4 thing was so odd, and that explanation was fantastic.

  • EsusMoose

    RIP Boz I only got to talk to him a few times but he was seemed like a great guy.

  • DeadButtDreaming

    RIP bud. To all the good times and our cow-based farm slam band.

  • Herr Schmitty

    I spent 5 or 6 hours talking to him two weeks ago on webcam. Lots of people were there for it; EsusMoose, Dagon, Lacertilian, etc. As people came and went, he and I stuck around for a while until it was only he and I. We shot the shit for an hour or two just by ourselves.

    I wish I had known then that that’d be the last time I chilled with him solo like that. I’m still incredibly glad I got to. He was one of my very favorite trolls in that he was always nice about it, always clearly taking the piss and not being an asshole. Definitely one of the folks here that I connected with highly, and I definitely cried some tears at my desk this morning when the news sunk in.

    RIP Boz, love(d) you bro. Hope you can see how many people grieve for you now and miss you already, wherever you are.

    • Dagon

      He pulled a one string bass that day, we had a blast making fun of it. The anti-Meshuggah bass.

      • EsusMoose

        I remember he only had the A string on it, how the hell do you accomplish that?

        • Dagon

          I blame Steve

        • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

          Morphine, anyone? Even though Mark Sandman eventually upped it to two strings on his bass.

  • Lacertilian

    Top bloke, already greatly missed.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    RIP Boz, May the soil lie lightly upon you.
    Some of the other guys may have known you a little better than I did but I will still miss your presence.

  • Guacamole Jim

    You’ll be missed, Boz. By all your friends and family, of course, but also by all of us weirdos here on the Toilet. Forever immortalized in the bowl.

    And thanks y’all for being a dope internet family.

    • NefariousDude

      Internet family is 4 lyfe

      • Kevin Nash & Friends

        He will always be in our hearts and minds and quads.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    RIP Boz. Fly on thunderbird.

  • NefariousDude

    I’m sorry fellas

  • Rest in peace, Boz. Loved talking about our dogs and your ridiculous taylor swift/gilmore girls/draw 4 shit. The world is a little worse without you.

  • SheWölf

    Goodspeed Son, may your angels be there to meet you on the other side…

  • The few things we shared will be remembered. Thanks so much for everything, Boz.

    May your travel be peaceful.

  • Void Dweller

    Bummer. Totally lame. RIP.

  • Fly free, Boz. You’re missed badly and loved well.

  • Trees ‘n Shit is Kvlt O)))

    I was really hoping to meet him if he made that trip to the US. We had plans to battle to establish beard/James supremacy, then brohug and go get some lunch and beer.

    • Dagon

      I would have filmed it. We were talking about doing the trip in 2016. I was gonna save money after graduation and all that.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    We will meet in Valhalla Boz

  • Dagon

    I’ll always remember Boz for all the laughs he gave us.

    You’ll be missed, man.

    • Herr Schmitty

      So many laughs! Dude was a one man riot.

  • The W.

    I remember this one time on MS when I typed out some long comment. Boz responded with absolute gibberish, and when I asked what he was trying to say, he meowed at me.

  • The W.
    • Lacertilian

      I know a certain Aussie who would be very happy with this addition.

  • Maik Beninton™

    I don’t remember him, although I often would see him on facebook. RIP.

  • Anathema

    This is soul crushing. Fuck

  • Spear

    I don’t know what to say. I never really got to know Boz, but I’ll miss seeing him around.

  • Chino’s shoe

    I’m just…crushed. Miss my brother.

    • Herr Schmitty

      Me too, homie. Not a fun day today, even if other good things happen.

      We’ll still get together and have that afterlife party though.

      • Chino’s shoe

        No man. Not fun at all. Feels so wrong.
        We’ll troll the shit out of that party.

  • Howard Dean

    Wow, sad news. I never talked to the guy and I didn’t know him beyond the comments I’d see on MS/ToH and when I was in the FB group. But that really sucks for him, his family, and those closest to him.

    Death at any age can be tragic, but it’s especially so in most cases with younger people. I presume he was a younger guy.

    Do you know how he died? It’s tragic nonetheless, and the significant part is that he died–regardless of the circumstances. But was he sick? I sometimes feel equal parts sadness and relief when those who have suffered with debilitating and painful sickness or disability die.


    • Guacamole Jim

      I don’t think we know what happened. He had a few health issues that he had mentioned to Lacertilian, but we don’t know anything concrete.

  • Sad news to wake up to. Boz was a huge personality, such a great guy and had me laughing in tears more times than I could count. Today, I shed different tears. You will be missed by all. Rest easy, James.

  • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

    Boz was a good friend, and a good man. He was…He was one of us. He was a man who loved metal, and had an epic beard, and a great sense of humor.

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

    You shall be missed.

  • Bozlinger was Kvlt O)))

  • Scrimm

    Shocked. Take care of yoursef dudes. RIP buddy. This is the second young death in a week for me.

    • Lacertilian

      Fuck man.

  • Rest in peace, James. You were a cool guy. I’m gonna miss you…

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Feck. Only chatted a bit to the dude but he was always good chill fun. Rest in peace…

  • Devastating. All y’all motherflushers are salt of the earth folks. RIP

  • Le Tapir The Based

    Damn, this Friday just got bad. R.I.P.

  • Stockhausen

    Man, this was the worst news to catch up to. Boz was such a strange, hilarious, awesome dude. Rest easy in the great porcelain throne, friend.

  • Call the Slambulance

    You were one of the people to make me laugh the hardest. One of the sweetest guys I’ve known. An all around great person. I love you, man. And I love all of you folks dearly. Please, take care of yourselves.

  • RustyShackleford

    Didn’t know him personally but still very sad nonetheless. Goes to show what a great community we have here, really great to read all these comments and stories about him. I’m not here as often as some but still got mad love for all of you. Rest in peace. Yep.
