Huh... I saw a couple of Ben's animations a few years ago before I got my account, they were some of the best I'd seen, I would have got into animation due to that, but I'm shit and don't know anyone who does it. I know a couple of people who have died like that, it's horrible to witness.
Just read through all the posts on here, and i'm a little disturbed.
Really, people? Just because someone dies of a drug overdose, you can't have sympathy for them? Or even the family they've left behind? What the fuck is wrong with you?
A great animator and, by all accounts of those who knew him personally, a good man died. He will be missed, if only for his animation. People mourn his death. If you don't care, then leave those who do alone.
Again, R.I.P. Ben. I did not know you personally, but your flash helped shape Newgrounds into what it is today. Even if some of those who inhabit it are worthless fuckheads.
Woah, I had no idea this was serious and I thought it was a joke! What exactly did he die of anyway? He was one of my favorite artists on this website and it's a pity he was never able to make that final Stick Slayer flash.

Wow I haven't watch the Stick Slayer series for a while. Shame for such a great NG artist to go away like that : (
RIP Ben Spurgin
It's sad to hear about an artist dying, but it just makes me agree more that newgrounds should have a memorial page, for all those we lost, whether loved by all or not, these people spend countless hours of their lives doing something they enjoy just so we can enjoy it too, they deserve something extra to say that they were here, and that they are missed.
I may not have known him, but he looks like a swell guy. Anyone with with the will to work towards awesomeness on newgrounds has to have a an awesomeness about them. I'm sad to hear that this was due to drugs, and it makes me hate them, all the more. His family will be in my prayers.
Thank God nobody has to sit through Stick Sucker IX. What a waste that series was. So what claimed Ben's life? Cancer 'sticks'? hehheuhuhuhehhuhhhuhehhuuhhhuhheheuhh

You're not even half the man Ben was, you prick. People fuck up, you're not perfect. You're evil, dude. What you just said is straight up fucking evil. Rot in hell, asshole.
Oh wow. This loser died of heroine? Lmfao. I second Kaneda-X's comment. Spurgin totally deserved what he got in the end. God doesn't like druggies, kids. I don't think He is too fond of shit-tastic stick animations either.
But it's ok... I bet Ben is looking up at us and screaming right now. LOL BEN. FIRE FIRE FIRE. FEEL THE BURN! *sizzle*

And just what the hell are you gonna cover? How many track marks he had? How many fluid ounces of heroine he shot in his veins? How many needle punctures did they find in his rotting corpse?

I intend for NG to last the next 100 years, so this sort of page will unfortunately become more and more necessary.
I was just wondering why you'd want it to last for such a short time?
Also, What a snap of IRONY.
Lot's of nasty posts I see. Whatever. Back in the day Ben contributed to the Newgrounds community, unlike most of you bastards. RIP. Also nevar forget.

When he's shoveling out garbage such as Stick Slayer, it's all for the best that he isn't around to "contribute to the Newgrounds community" any longer.

You do realize that Stick slayer was made in 2001-2005?
I think you need to shut the fuck up. Hes dead, for gods sake. Give him alittle bit respect by shutting up altogether.
R.I.P Ben. I've always been a fan of stick slayer. We should send a card to his family, show him how respected he was.

Sig by this dude
I think Stick Slayer was a pretty cool guy. He kells sticks and doeshnt afrad of anythinbgs
If you see this comment on MindChamber's userpage then it's the original comment, this is just a copy.
May Ben rest in peace and go to the great NG in the sky. His legacy will be his awesome work and the good times that he had with his family and friends. I feel that it would be a fitting tribute, and if Ben's family gives it the green light, if MindChamber is allowed to complete SS9 and thereby complete the apotheosis of Ben Spurgin as one of the true legends/Gods of NG. I believe that the users of NG are like a family and each of us a brother.
Rest in peace my brother in NG. Your light will never dim or be extingushed.
To all those people who are going on about how Ben shouldn't have done drugs, it was his choice. You're only commenting about it because we were told on the StickSlayer page. If you have any humanity left, then you should apologise for smearing Ben's memory with your shameful comments. Both my girlfriend's and my hearts go out to Ben's family and we hope that his work will live on as his legacy. Our bodies are but flesh and blood, but the mind and soul are eternal. Ben inspired everyone who he met, either in person or on NG. I never had the honour of communicating with Ben, but he touched us all.
If this seems wrong or distasteful, then I apologise most sincerely - I propose a toast, "To Ben, one of the true legends of NG".
Hey ho, the banjo's dead!!!
