Many fond memories with you man. You are a true, great one of a kind and admired person you were to me. Remember when we went to that record store in Cicero? That was weird, but good. Even though we lost touch you will always be remembered with special fondness friend. I miss you.

I had the honor to working with Matthew once a month for a few years on the Beer Squad. While I didn't know him very well outside the Coop, it was impossible not to immediately feel what a great soul he was – a gentle, dependable, strong spirited guy. I'll miss him, and I'll remember him very fondly.

What a mensch. Thew was the first person I talked to the day I interviewed at the Seward. I remember his understated hilariousness, his abiding fondness for tahini and corn pancakes, and excellent sense of personal style.

I was fortunate enough to have Thew as a roommate in the early 2000's. It wasn't until we lived together that I learned how hilarious he was and that he was such an awesome DJ. I remember coming home on more than one occasion to a full on disco soundtrack blasting through the house with Thew wearing 70's gear and big glasses. He was the person who introduced me to Fela Kuti. He was the sweetest guy and he really knew how to deliver a joke. DJ Night Moves you will be missed. Glad I had a chance to be friends with you in this lifetime.

When Thew and I were friends we used to walk into places and then imagine that this song came on right when we walked in...just so we could imagine that we were always where the party was...or the party was always where we were? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob9sDpmRuqc

Disco Thew. Solid Gold

Thew was at once a most far reaching creative mind and companssionate heart. Furthermore, a true Karaoke legend and we shall perhaps all dance in the great kosmische disco in his rememberance.
