RIP Justin Wilson

Filed under:General — eric @ 9:16 am

One of my all-time favorite personalities, Justin Wilson, has passed away. When I was young, I memorized many of his rambling cajon stories are repeated them, with accent, for the amusement and the annoyance of my friends. Perhaps tomorrow will be cajun night in memory — crawfish pie and a bunch of wine for dinner!


  1. I had a “Ho-Nez! For the last time Coach, it’s Jones!” moment reading this posting. When you mentioned his “cajon” stories, I read “cah-hone” stories and thought “Testicle stories?!?” Later I realized that Mr. Wilson was a cajun witticist. That’s Caj-Un. As you were…

  2. Bummer…oh well, at least he seemed to enjoy life while he had it.

    I do not understand Matt’s posting at all…but at least he’s finally reading the dern weblog.

  3. I only know of one person still at Tech that goes by “satan”, but this satan isn’t that satan. Who is this satan? As far as I can remember, there’s only one person taller than me that knows both me and Matt who’s still there, but I can’t tell if you’re him.

    In other news, I just ate a chile relleno. Made from a bell pepper. At least the beans were good.

  5. First this mysterious M person…now some unknown satan…stop the insanity!

    And I STILL think the damn can is from Safeway.

    (…”Great Satan, Charlie Brown”…woo hoo hoo hee hee…ahem…*snerk*…)

  6. What *other* satan is from Tech who would be impersonating me?

    I guess I need to talk to lucifer and my other minions about this entity who I *must* “deal” with. ;)

    BTW, I am not “The Great Satan”; I am “The Adequate Satan”.

  7. I remember sitting at home as a small fry watching Master Wilson make up some potato salad, Huuuuuuey! He seemed to enjoy his food and the cooking show, too. If only we all could find such fulfillment in life…

    And, congrats on the marriage gig. You were one of the few people at Tech I would have married. If you were female, tall, and rich, then I might have pursued you a bit harder. ;)

  8. Hey…he’s TALL!

  9. On second thought…if he was female and rich, I probably would have married him too.

    I think that I almost did.

  10. “It’s football night in west Texas. The game is over and the visiting team’s coach is on the bus calling roll in preparation of the long ride back home. The coach says, ‘Robles!’ ‘Here, Coach!’ comes the reply from the back of the dark bus. ‘Flores!’ ‘I’m here, Coach!’ ‘Armendariz!’ ‘Here!’ The coach says ‘Hoe-nez!’ No response. ‘Hoe-nez!… Dang it! We can’t leave untill everybody is on the bus. Has anybody seen Hoe-nez?’ A voice from the back of the bus says ‘For the last time coach, the name is Jones!’”

    So that was the joke I was referring to. “Cajon” is a spanish word and singular from the more popular (in Amurrica) “Cajones” meaning testicles. You see, I read Eric’s post wrong and thought that… Oh never mind.

  11. Now see…I just don’t know enough about testicles, that’s all.

    Though, you’d think having relatives in both cajUn Louisiana and in predominately hispanic Texas that I could have figured that out.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  12. Matt, I have never known you to be confused.

    Wait…that was in another life. Nevermind. ;P

  13. BTW, Eric is *not* tall - though he might be tall if he was a woman. Eric is short just like the rest of youze munchkins. ;)
