On Saturday, October 16, 2010, we lost our beloved friend, family member and artist Micheal “eyedea” Larsen at the age of 28. Eyedea, who was most notably known for his music with Eyedea & Abilities, Oliver Hart, Face Candy and Carbon Carousel, was an artist in its truest form. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. In the days to come, we feel the focus should be on Micheal’s life, music and legacy. Let’s celebrate his life, remember his music and never forget what he has given us all.

We miss you. We love you. And, you will not be forgotten.

Micheal “eyedea” Larsen 11.09.81 – 10.16.10 R.I.P.

Megan, I saw your face book and ravishing is atllaucy is as apt, quite accurate as your depiction of Michael. Was a blast to meet in person and I see you appreciated, as did all who had the pleasure. Personally I’m partial to his dazzling freestyles. Not discounting his written work which is also astonishing, but his off the dome cacophony of phenomenal patterns and speed is the apex of anything I’ve ever heard extemporaneously and a rare talent even Carnage (whose syllable per measure count makes Busta Rhymes sound like he’s on Valium) appreciated. Not the garbage studio g’ Carnage the real one who is one of few near Eyedea’s pure, surreal speed, I’m sure anyone who knows the true underground can discern. But to chose a line as reluctant as I am to do so since, again that is like having a million intelligent, gorgeous women you are in love with and having to choose. However, always had a special penchant for; I read books on nova & quantum mechanics/psychology, philosophy peyote and acid/ I like Jimmy Hendrix more than any rap ish/ and my favorite movie’s Dr. Strangelove, that’s a classic’. or Got knocked-out one time/stupid m-fer thought peace was a gang sign’ great joke. OR Didn’t watch the superbowl, don’t drink alcohol, don’t carry ID, don’t go to the mall/ I’m extra argumentative and really good at fast talk, I can’t dance and sing but I can rap my a$$‘off’-all from Weird Side or course. Just a fun, upbeat whimsical song. Though I of course appreciated his more scathing and insightful diatribes regarding the human condition and general angoisse, but I’d prefer to reference that particular track since he knew the world is collapsing and humanity is devouring itself but didn’t have to put it in all his music like some rappers who target disenchanted, suburbanite trust-fund brats who don’t appreciate their cushy, nerf lives. And atllaucy harbor disdain for their parents for giving them more then they could ever appreciate and rebel by embracing a ghetto lifestyle portrayed by actors not artists since it’s the antithesis of the uneventful, bucolic, urbane bliss anyone whose lived the events detailed in the lyrics of that pimp-hop drivel would literally kill for. He also could drop a gem that could get a party going, that is how I’ll remember the master Apologies for the jeremiad, just hard to describe how devastating losing an idol/friend is. I don’t think he’s really gone or done, just demonstrating to his god how to freestyle RIP Michael.
