Disappearance of Joe Sheridan


Anyone know what happened to Joe? He had a vast knowledge of the paint business and used to post on here regularly.

How is all this wasted effort keeping it simple, which it should be.
I used to think that all this arguing of stupid points had to stop, but now I could care less. I'm joining brushjockey. Let the nailbangers, roofers, and the plumbers tell the people how to paint. It's not fun or productive anymore, and I have more interesting things going on in life. I'm outta here, peace out.
He posted a few more times after that, but hasn't been back since. Sad, he was a very knowledgeable painter willing to spend his time to help others.

It IS tempting sometimes. I find that my skills stay sharpened by answering questions and helping people out so I have hung around. I also learn so much from all of you that do this crazy painting business.

Let me add that it is okay to disagree with someone's way of doing things as long as it falls into the parameters of a quality paint job. I think we all have had disagreements over what type of brush we like to use, nap on roller covers, type of paint we like to use, etc. I think the key is to be AGREEABLE when we disagree and move on, but, that's easier said than done sometimes.

^^^^^^totally agree. I am constantly learning on here sometimes things I didn't know, sometimes things I had forgotten. That's over 50 years of painting experience we lost. It seems like we have someone now who will listen and is trying to fix the site, Cricket, maybe we need to do our part and start policing our posts a little bit. Am open to any thoughts.

Joe Sheridans last post was on 06-23-2013. Brushjockey might still be lurking around here. His last post was 11-14-2013. We lost a lot of good talent due to someone who would argue to the death over the way he feels something should be with people who do this stuff day in and day out for decades.

Same here, just a couple summers ago I learned a trick to dent the side of your cut bucket in and use your wizzie/cigar roller on that if you don't have or want to use a screen. In the 15 years or so of off and on full time painting I had never seen that before. The summer before that I learned the trick of using a wizzie/cigar roller to cut in ceilings. You still have to use a brush around lights and stuff you don't want to get paint on. You can save so much time doing it that way.

Click on the thingy by jsheridan's name in the quote I posted. Read that thread. That will give you an idea. There were many other threads with countless posts deleted.

I hope Brush is still around I really valued his opinion, even when he disagreed with me. Matt you brought up something, I wonder if a sticky about tips and tricks for painting would work.
I think a lot of what we take for granted because we do it every day may be a good tip for a newbe or some of us oldies.

I understand those problems but this one had to do with posting on the site. I think.

Another tribute to Joe here. He emailed me last year wondering why I had not been posting much anymore. I told him it was hard to beat him to the punch, and whatever he said I usually agreed with, so there was no point in adding more.
