It was a terrible loss, but how did he die?

Via Heroin Overdose. it says that in the post.

JEEZ.

nah, i'm being a dick.

but seriouslt, Spurgin was a big loss for the newgrounds community, the man who created pimp's quest and Stick Slayer has got to be remembered. without those early days, there would be nothing.

I love Ben's dramatic introductions. It's strange to see his userpage up, giving an update on his profects only months before his death. Well, strange and really cool at the same time.

Sounds like a good idea. Is it going to be one of those NG holidays where the Tankman has one of his characters in it? That'd be cool.

Yeah, I'm not very familar with him sry ^_^

He is not a role model.

Certainly not someone who deserves a day in their memory.
He killed himself with drugs, I couldn't care less if he was a good animator or not.
