^^ Here here.

Are we just going to have people signing up to make slightly sarky/aggressive comments from Yoñlu's home town when we've already had many nice things said about him by rllmukers previously?

Sarky/aggressive comments? What are you talking about?

Actually it doesn't matter because you're clearly wrong. This thread is on the first page of the google search, yonlu's work is getting some attention and the signups are a result of that. Nothing to get worked up about.

Reading a whole thread in another language to know exactly how much we know before they post is also quite an ask. But really, let's not get into a discussion on forum etiquette in here of all places.

I'm still listening to this stuff, and I recently got a PM on myspace from the mother of a girl who knew him (I think). She commented on how a record is going to be released for him.

I keep thinking, how could you ever miss someone that you've never met? I never knew about him, and I'm from Brazil. Now that I know, I wish so hard that we've met before it all.

And it was a long time ago <_<

Does anyone could tell me about him? Don't know why, but I feel like just someone that just lost a FRIEND.

feels terrible.

I don't know if anyone here was responsible or if someone just randomly came across his work but Yonlu has made Metafilter today.

16 year old Yonlu made music that ranged from bossa nova to 8-bit music from the sounds of desktop printers, never knowing that he would someday make the pages of Paste, eMusic, and Rolling Stone Brasil. He posted It's Not Another King Kong (later titled A Boy and the Tiger) to a gaming forum, where it was met with praise. More songs soon followed, which included English songs (I Know What It's Like, Humiliation), and also Portuguese songs (Estrela, Luana). Perhaps suffering from depression, Yonlu took his own life via carbon monoxide poisoning in 2006, just a few weeks before his 17th birthday. His parents only learnt of his songwriting from a CD he left behind for them, with a note telling them to listen to the CD "whenever they felt sad".

Lots of people tried to stop him, myself included. He was determined, and very calm from what I remember. I tried to PM him, post in his thread, the only other thing I could do was to set up a blogger account, called "Don't Do It" so I could subscribe to his blog and send him a direct message.

He'd just made his mind up that it was going to happen and wanted to be sure he would succeed.

Yes, it's a tragedy for those that he left behind, but not for him. He made his choice, it was probably the only time in his life where he felt fully in control, that is some comfort to me.

I don't know how to feel...[actually how to react]  Actually i can't describe what I'm feeling. This is so close to me, but also so far away.

When I was 4 years old, in 2006, Yonlu was 16. Now, in 2018 I'm 16, and I just knew about his story this year.

I wish I had been able to 'join' him on this site, before it was too late, as it is now. 

If I was able to, I would say that I feel so thankful for ''he''. Was the first time, in this 16 years of my life, that a song, a music, and a person really reached me. And coincidentally, I start with music and stuff when I was really young too. But in some 'part' of my life, i gave up on it, because I had lost all my strength, even for the music. But after that I listened to his songs, I felt again, it inspired me.

And now, I'm so damn grateful. And in love with the musics. With the person he was...

I know how the world hurt in you. I feel the same.

I'm kind of glad that I got the chance of ''meet you'', unfortunately, not in the best circumstances, but your music made me feel things again. You really, REALLY, really touched me and reached me. In this world of trash you're a ''dádiva''.

And we both know where Erechim is...

Vinicius, I love you!

it's not a person. it's a city in Brazil. a city on the state of Rio Grande do Sul, and the capital of this state is Porto Alegre, where Yonlu lived.(I just know about it because I'm brazilian).

 but on the music "Luana/mecânica celeste aplicada" he said something about Erechim.

"e eu aposto que ele nem sabe onde fica Erechim", and the meaning it's like "I bet that he doesn't even know where Erechim is"

the problem here is to know who is the "he" Yonlu is talking about. but with the context and interpretation you can know it. I'm not gonna try to explain here because I'm not absolutely sure, but almost. if u want me to talk about it, just send me a message here! we can discuss about it!

dear yoñlu, 

 

i was only three yo when you decided that this world was too heavy for u. now, im almost sixteen, and i feel like i don't belong anywhere. i feel so many things, things that makes me want to scratch my skin and scream. 

but your music helps me a lot. when i got to know what happened to you, two years ago, i felt like a part of me i didn't know died and then was reborn. i felt like i had lost a friend, vini. i dreamt of you so many times. i always try to save you but i can't and then i die too. i miss you and we've never met.

and i feel so sorry. im so sorry because im sure im gonna end myself. soon. 

wish i could have hugged you, listened to you and your demons, be there for you.

i just hope you're in peace now.

i love you.

thank you for being the most beautiful thing i see and hear every single day.
