i know i wasnt around, well i was but not on here, during the 2000's, i only became a member in 07/08, but i do send my thoughts and love to his family. indeed losing some one is not easy. so to the family i am deeply sorry and i do think that there should be a memorial page i think it would be very kind and wonderful to remember those who have passed. in any case, to Ben's family, i am deeply sorry.

R.I.P

Fuck-Division i agree with u all the way, i mean what kind of sick fuck would say some thing like that, i mean a man is dead, and it doent matter how or what he did in life or how he died, its just sick. i feel sick just thinking about it. if some one i hated died i would never ever say such a thing. u know what to the fucker who said that this... LyansPryde i hope this happens to u and maybe i'll say the same thing and lets see how u feel, huh? u know what, how about u just get off here if ur going to be that way.

hav a nice fuckin day, fuck face

sincerely yours,

I'm not sure I can say anything that hasn't been said. I've been lucky though to never have anyone really close to me die. But I still have his family in my prayers.


What up?

Tis truly sad, i liked his works alot. Talented and inspiring guy.

Rest in peace bro....

Response to Ben Spurgin, 1977-2009 2009-10-28 07:24:47


His animation wasn't to my taste.

But he was still a good guy I suppose!

I think people should never be that disrespectful about people. If you're friend or colleage died you would definatly be sad too. You wouldn't appreciate someone laughing in your face "Your mate is dead!". Ben was probably a good guy, I'm going to pay my respects anyways.

Good luck to anyone who has been affected, I'm really sorry guys.

Man, I never knew him. Maybe I'll go watch his movies.

R.I.P. Ben Spurgin.

Response to Ben Spurgin, 1977-2009 2009-10-28 09:57:21


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.

Response to Ben Spurgin, 1977-2009 2009-10-28 14:10:46


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.

I think someone should make Pimps Quest 2 in his memory.

Tom Fulp, you are a fat fuck!

pimp quest was really cool... poor guy.

Just to let you know, I'll be working on a story covering the last month of Ben Spurgin's life.

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.

Response to Ben Spurgin, 1977-2009 2009-10-31 14:29:27


The Stick Slayer Series was great, I can't believe he's gone


Newew :)

Response to Ben Spurgin, 1977-2009 2009-10-31 14:41:05


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.

Fuck you. 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.
