heroin overdose a few days back
All I can say about this is R.I.P peace Ben Spurgin, you will never be forgotten by your fans and your flash will always be loved by your fans, rest in peace.
you know what is really sad? I thought it was a joke that his mom's user page said he died of heroin overdose. I feel like crap now...
I should have mentioned in my earlier posts that I loved Ben's PEE MAN series most of all. There were only 3 movies in it, so that's probably why people aren't mentioning it anywhere near as much as they're now mentioning Stick Slayer or Pimp's Quest, which yes... were more famous...
... But PEE MAN will always be what I remember him for, most of all. I'm sad there's no possibility of a PEE MAN IV, too... but what a great trilogy that is as it stands now. How lucky we are to have been graced by those peeful flashes. Long live PEE MAN.

I dunno, and I doubt she's gonna tell you... but if I had a kid as talented as him who died of a drug overdose, I'd probably feel like I wish my kid hadn't died before I did, and had gotten to share his talent with even more people than he did before he ODed, but... I'd remember the best parts of our life together and the best parts of him or her and I'd try not to feel guilty for how I raised him or her. And I'd be glad that he or she had dedicated fans who enjoyed the work produced by the talent within my kid.
How does YOUR mom feel that you go around asking the mothers of dead 31-year-old artists how they "feel" about their songs dying due to a drug overdose? Asshole.
(the above isn't really only directed at this guy, BTW, it's at all of you self-righteous little punks who can't stop screaming "OMG HEROIN IS BAD, HE DIED, OMG, ROT IN HELL, HE DESERVED IT, ETC." Keep on judging, judging, judging, like the little fake religious people you were probably raised to be by your asshole parents, guys. I'm sure you'll NEVER receive any comeuppance later in life or anything... nah... karma ain't a bitch or anything... nahhhhh...)

:::facepalms::: I guess my fingers are way more used to typing "songs" than "sons." Whoops. O_o
I'm pretty sure the pricks at whom I was directing that vitriol will get the point, though. When I posted earlier, I'd read the first two pages. I just read the other 8-9 pages just now and... yeah, felt like saying something on the subject.
Let the man rest in peace already.

Poor guy......... :(
if NG is to last the nxt cenury, will you be passing the torch toyour son as owner and operator?
I don't think how he dies really matters. Drug addict or not, he was really young. Sure it wasn't the wisest choice but at least feel sorry and have some respect for his family. They lost a loved one.
ok, uhmm, i don't know wjat happened, it seems people are mourning this animator. not to sound ignorant but, what happened if i may ask?
THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE CAN MOVE MOUTAINS, LETS GO FORWARD, SCREW OLD VALORS

Read a bit, friend. He died of a heroin overdose. And while yes, he shouldn't have been using heroin in the first place, I disagree with anyone who says he deserved to die. It's not like he was a bad person, he just made a poor choice. Rest in peace.
I disagree. He did not make a poor choice.
Addiction is a disease, not an option.
The first time you try heroin, its a choice.
But it alters your brain chemistry with the first dose. There are functional addicts who do not do heroin to get high, but to feel normal. Because not doing heroin leaves them shaky, sweaty, vomiting ...
I'm not sure of Ben's situation, but if he'd done heroin more than once, then he had a disease.
It's a really unfortunate situation, and I hope that Ben's family knows that there are people out there who care, and who appreciated Ben and his work.
Ben will be missed. You've probably seen his work, and know how great it is.
Rest in peace, Ben.
You do not currently have a signature for your Forum posts. Boooooooo!
good night and good-bye, may better things await you in the after life.
Wow. I havent been on NG in a few weeks, and I'm hit with this. I'm sad to hear about this. I was really hoping that he would make a comeback into Flash. RIP to him.
"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery"
im so unbearably sad about this and would love to learn flash to make a memorial flash about his work R.I.P
NOTICE: if u notice this notice then u will notice that this notice is not worth noticing
It must be hard losing a son,
too bad they never watched Pulp Fiction
I'm guessing that Ben was the humorous type, so I'll just leave that with him.

So this means that the schwain died this year?
Anyways.. I didn't know the guy, but I feel sorry for his poor mom. It's very sad that people pass away so young.
RIP man, hope you have a spacey time where-ever you may be.
