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. Twelve years ago we lost our brother...

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.

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

xx missing u marimari...can't believe it's been 1 year.

July 30, 2007, 06:17:28 AM by daigong
I can't believe it's been one year since Kyle aka marimari passed away. I can still remember that afternoon when his sister KagoBon posted this thread, telling us the news:
http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=4693.0

Just stunned everyone, but we keep on moving. Risa Niigaki has grown into a beautiful young lady. Everyone staying strong.

I'm just keeping the positive attitude, putting a smile on my face like Kyle. Mourn you till we join you, lil homie.


If you don't know marimari - well, basically he was a selfless dude who would help a brother out or totally pull files out of nowhere and share em with us. Yet, he was just as down to earth as can be in the IRC. You can peep his legacy around the forum and in these stickied threads in the Classic Forum:
http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?board=14.0

SO, everyone, put up your marimari sigs to show a lil love to Kyle on this day of remembrance.


You can Peep the OPVs in the JPHiP Youtube Channel. Play a round of Pangya!! Post a lil something you remember about him, 

We've made a donation on behalf of everyone to the Bouvier Family's charity of choice, The Make A Wish Foundation of America: http://www.wish.org

Which leads me to giving back. Keeping marimari's legacy going. I am tinkering with the idea of a JPH!P Foundation, where we can utilize the jphip.org acct we have to bring awareness to causes we're passionate about. For now, I'll focus on getting the JPH!P Archives up to date in The Asshole. Big props to all who have been working hard delivering those XXXclusive files to everyone. I'm sure Kyle would be so proud :thumbsup

Thanks to everyone who put up their signatures, expressed their emotions in the marimari memorial thread, and comments on other forums and livejournals, etc. Forever Kyle be our homie. :yep: One Love. :heart:

among others...feel free to suggest or join the Tribute :)

For sure, is the
marimari Tribute Radio Show

July 30, 2006 saw the Hello! Project fan community lose one of its favorite sons, marimari aka Kyle Bouvier. You may have seen his uploads on Hello! Online, Jpopmusic Forums, and JPH!P.  He has been so generous to the H!P online communities that I can guarantee you that there is at least one file there on your hard drive that came from his sharing.  If you have not already done so, please do take the time to send a message of support to marimari's sister, KagoBon, and his family in...
http://forum.jphip.com/showthread.php?t=4693

We plan to print out the thread and bind it, as a part of The marimari TRIBUTE Project
http://forum.jphip.com/showthread.php?t=4822

Like the projects we have done in past, we plan to have a radio show and IRC gathering.

The Marimari Memorial Radio Show will be on at 0230hrs (GMT) on Sunday, 13 August 2006, the timeslot when Hello!Ongaku is usually on-air on JPHiP Radio. marimari has given the H!P fan community a lot in his life as a H!P fan, and this show will be a joint effort by H!P fans to give back some of the love which he deserved. If you have or know of any other H!P fan that has experienced the goodness that is marimari, we invite you to come join us in this session of sharing and remembrance of a beloved common friend.

Submit any karaokes, song requests, and recorded/written messages to Ongaku! Project's Tris-chan and Rei-chan (at Ongaku Project Forums or JPH!P Forum) or JPH!P's Masa and daigong (at JPH!P Forum)

Tune in to the radio show at JPHiP Radio
 
Join the IRC Channel at #JPH!P @ SpaceTronix or if you don't have an IRC chat program, use Java Chat.

Submissions will be accepted until 11 August 2006 at 23:00 EST so act now!

marimari has affected us all in one way or other. I therefore ask that you spread this message to any other Jpop forum you visit or to any Jpop fan that you know of as quickly as possible. It breaks my heart to see KagoBon reading the marimari memorial thread over and over. Show her how much you care. I have already cross-posted this meessage in JPH!P Forums @ jphip.com, Hello! Online @ hello-online.org, LJ Communities: morningmusume + miracle_night

Show your support for marimari and promote this week's show. boykun has kindly made these banners for us to use.

xx The marimari memorial thread (Rest In Peace)

July 30, 2006, 08:56:55 PM by KagoBon
marimari will not be coming back. While I was eating breakfast, my father came to me and told me that marimari is dead. I couldn't believe it, but when I went into his room, he was cold. My brother, Kyle Bouvier, hid from you something he had. He had Muscular Dystrophy, a disease that wastes away your muscles. He has been in a wheelchair since he was ten. He passed away in his sleep, peacefully. Thank you all for being a good friend to him. I'm sure you'll miss all of his Risa pics.

mod edit:
here's a memorial sig by boykun you can use to honor marimari
