What a cute guy, Dirk.
Such an open smile, as open as he was towards us, musically and personally.
Thanks for this beautiful photo.
Once again my sincere condolences, the world has lost a fine person in him. Too soon, much too soon; it's just not fair and the inevitability of it all makes me feel very sad.

All the best,
Lex

thank you for uploading these pictures. it seems so much in dirk's spirit to let this community share grief, as dirk shared music and his story. it will help those of us who already carry his unique voice with us through blog posts to keep his face in our memory, too. let those spikes stand tall. he lived so well.

So young, and still so confident with all he to struggle and fight with. Taken too young, lets hope he finds the ever playing fields of rock.

All the best to all that love the guy.

To Dirk's Family,

Thanks for posting the pictures of Dirk - I must agree with Lex that the unfairness of it all has struck me to my core. I am sitting here listening to some music that I would never have heard of if it were not for Dirk and my heart is so heavy at your loss.

You handsome son is missed and remembered by many across the globe.

Just wanted to add my condolences.
I've followed his blog for some time, learned about a bunch of bands I'd never heard of, listened to his stories. He held sway over a large audience around the globe.Very saddened by this news

So sad to read all that after coming from vacations...
I was happy that he was happy after receiving from me albums of Hiro Yanagida and Sons Of Sun.
He inspired me to open community on LJ one and a half months ago. So from this day this community which I'm moderating will be dedicated to the light memory of Dirk.
I miss you Dirk.

I've been trading music and chatting with Derek on soulseek for a number of years. He always seemed like a good man. He'll be missed.

Sorry,

Though through the site I feel I did, I'm sorry never to have met Dirk, a guy who shared when it would have been easier to hole up and hide in himself, and who loved good music. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. —Harry

Short, but intense journey in this planet. For sure his life was much purifing than ours who will stay here a little longer.

Now he is much better somewhere in space beside the ones who share the same thoughts and beliefs.

Best wishes of peace in the heart of his family's members.

To Dirk's family - I really appreciate the efforts you are making in sharing Dirk's memory with us.

I can't begin to imagine what you're going through; I've only recently become a parent and the very idea of losing either of my boys is complete torture. It is very decent of you to share Dirk's passing with us at all.

I wish you eternal comfort with Dirk's memory.

Unbelievable. I had always appreciated Dirk's blog, one of the first really great MP3 blogs I had ever encountered. I only commented a few times, but never an amount commensurate to the number of great albums he introduced to me and countless others.

I am very sad to see that he is no longer with us. He was very brave to confront his illness and share his life and music with all of us. Your family must miss him very much. My heart and those of others who were touched by Dirk are with you.

I WISH HIM PEACE.AND MY SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY.
ps

he had a deep knowledge of some very obscure music & I learned a lot because he was so willing to share this.

Of course I never met him, but his spirit transcended this...

he was an educator, and his writing let us inside his world...

peace out fellow traveler

No words to describe how bad I feel...I know the cancer is a fatal disease, but...it is not fair...so young, so much to give...I don't know what to say...you gave to all of us, a lesson how could we see and feel the life in this planet...so, I just only to say : just rest in peace my friend.
Dói muito, principalmente depois de acompanhar os últimos dias deste grande JOVEM, que foi, é, e será para sempre, o nosso Dirk R.I.P.

I discovered this blog long ago, and I used to visit it from time to time. I liked this blog not because of the music (I'm not much into the music posted here) but because of Dirk's comments.
Told my wife about Dirk's story, and how he recently passed away. We both felt really sorry about him and you, your family.
The smile that appears in those photos was also transmitted in his writings.
Our sincere condolences; we wish you all the best.

Thanks for the photos, Dirk's mother. He was a beautiful guy. And he gave us such beautiful music! Damn, why do this things happen? It's completely unfair, I agree with the other posters.

The cyberworld can be so alienating, yet it can also bring friends together. Dirk was a friend to so many of us whom he shared his music and his life with. And now the sadness of his passing spreads to all of us too.

I am so sorry for your loss, and I'd just like to join all the other "strangers" out here in wishing you and your family comfort in this time of great sorrow, peace as the time passes, and eventual happiness in remembering Dirk.

God bless him and you all.

I only just got a hold of Dirk a few weeks ago after a Podcast he helped put together and he got back to me promptly just before his treatment, which in hindsight shows so much about his character. I had a friend of mine pass away very young just two years ago and I hope the two of them meet up and exchange their thoughts on music. My sincerest condolences.

I will miss this blog and its author as a very rare individual indeed put it forth not for gain other than being in touch with those who shared his interests.
It is sad we lose those we care about and cannot replace them.As anonymous people roam this planet, we adopt those as friends who show special qualities like Dirk, who only wanted to share his world in his blog for all to pass time by and enjoy for only a moment, the music that played through his ears has been passed through him like a torch that shines on with every play archived for posterity.Best wishes for all family in this time of morn.We enjoyed this persons time he gave to us and will definately be remembered as a selfless individual whose time here was much too short.Dirk will live on everytime we hear the music sent out from him.Thank you to Dirk and family.

one of the first blogs I encountered and regularly read, esp. for all the great Japanese stuff Dirk posted.
reading of his struggles was a case of "there but for the grace of...go I"
condolences for your loss and know that Dirk moved many a person even as he provided the world with his shared finds.
this is like losing a dear friend even though we never met.
I am really going to miss his posts.
