Jesus.  I know nothing of who this is, the situation, any of the players or anything other than the final outcome, but that note is a gut punch.  Brutal.

Never read anything like it.

I couldn't face the new Kayfabe upload today, have to take a break for awhile. I watched one of the Disney Duck ones yesterday and someday will hopefully check out the others on Carl Barks.

I had to watch the new upload today as they were reviewing Babe #1.

They've posted his obit over at TCJ: https://www.tcj.com/ed-piskor-1982-2024/

The comments section there is closed, in a sad reflection of the fact that the people who he felt hounded him to his death are still determined to do so after his passing.

They also will be posting reminiscences in a few days.

It opened fine for me.

I've heard his name before, but didn't follow his career. If those were the guys that reviewed JB's Elsewhen then I did hear his voice and see his hands in part of an episode.

As the Obit says, incredible how quick someone's life can be obliterated in about a week to the point of ending one's life.

I work in media production and I use the phrase "Don't tell me you're...." very frequently, and to me, it's always meant "It makes me feel older that we're co-workers" there's no sexual component to it.

What a sad situation.

I'm sorry James, I can't find one that's not the Google Docs one or the Facebook one (I don't have Facebook anymore).
Googling only reveals a huge amount of references to it or links to the Docs version.

Also did I miss where he spells it out, or did Bleeding Cool's coverage make it seem like Ed died of natural causes or something?  Link

(edited to use correct name! )
