Recognize a JPHiP Legend: marimari

marimari banner by boykun


marimari: a friend, a legend. One of the regular IRC folk and consummate Risa Niigaki fanboy, he had the nack for finding files out of nowhere. His taste in cute girls and music was unmatched. Sadly, marimari passed away on July 30, 2006. Kyle Bouvier is up above, looking down upon us with a big smile. We at JPHiP carry on his legacy of being selfless in sharing and caring FOR LIFE.

This slideshow was created by siggy featuring messages from the members of JPHiP, with music by Risa Niigaki and photos from her debut photobook "Niigaki Risa"

We had a tribute show aired August 13, 2006. The marimari memorial show hosted by friends at Ongaku! Project, featuring spoken tributes and karaoke songs.

Here you can see marimari related threads immortalized for a taste of what he was like and how he touched us all. We'll miss you marimari.

On July 30th we pour a little liquor for our homie marimari  aka Kyle Bouvier. Time sure flies - nine years ago that afternoon when we heard the news...

His selfless acts and being an extremely positive nice guy, doesn't even begin to describe what he meant to us. One of the greatest :jphip: has ever seen. Check out the Classic Threads Museum for a taste of his impact. Kyle had contributed so much to the Hello! Project fandom by sharing many materials at all the sites. He was a regular in the IRC and took part in online games like Pangya. When we learned that throughout his life, he was confined to a wheelchair due to muscular dystrophy, it made us respect him even more. To overcome those odds, to be with us HiPsters.

Words cannot describe what he meant to the H!P Fandom. The ultimate Risa fanboy. LOOK at his Reina sig, animated dancin! from his last.fm account: http://www.last.fm/user/marimariRisa%20%3C3


In honour his memory we play the game marimari loved so much, something we call:

It's that time to polish off your golf clubs in honour of a Fallen HiPster...hard to imagine it's been six years ago that we lost marimari aka Kyle Bouvier.

His selfless acts and being an extremely positive nice guy, doesn't even begin to describe what he meant to us. One of the greatest :jphip: has ever seen. Check out the Classic Threads Museum for a taste of his impact. Kyle had contributed so much to the Hello! Project fandom by sharing many materials at all the sites. He was a regular in the IRC and took part in online games like Pangya. When we learned that throughout his life, he was confined to a wheelchair due to muscular dystrophy, it made us respect him even more. To overcome those odds, to be with us HiPsters.

July 30th marks the day when we pour a little liquor for our homie ... we continue the tradition we started in 2008, we play the game marimari loved so much. Just good times hanging out, reducing our strokes (for once) and smacking around balls into the rough. The weekend closest to marimari memorial day is July 29th so LET'S TOURNEY.

Never forgetting five years ago, we lost marimari aka Kyle Bouvier. His selfless acts and being an extremely positive nice guy, doesn't even begin to describe what he meant to us.

July 30th marks the day when we throw up our sigs and pour a little liquor for our homie ... we continue the tradition we started in 2008, we play the game marimari loved so much. Just good times hanging out, smacking around balls. And July 30th happens to be on a weekend so it's a great time to get together and TOURNEY.
