It's with great sadness that myself and many other GTUers learned about the passing of our resident ginger nutcase, back in November (26th Nov. 2013). It was noted that Woogie's last post was made in late November. Upon checking his Twitter account, it was noted that his last tweet coincided with his last post on GTU. After further investigation, Bob discovered an obituary in the name of Ryan McKay (Woogie's real name). Em made contact with some of his real-life friends, and they confirmed the worst. I'm not going to go into the details surrounding the cause of death, as it's posted in the Spamorama thread. So if you're interested, it's on page 212.

 

I'm only making this thread because a lot of GTUers (myself included) don't post in that thread, and I think it's right that everyone should know. I only found out by chance on Facebook.

 

I hope he's in a better place now, looking down at us, pissing himself laughing at us being "fucking retards".

 

RIP to Ryan Michael McKay. Genuinely one of my most favourite GTUers ever :(

Times like this, I really hope there isn't an afterlife, or if there is, I hope the option to look down over the world isn't there. It's odd to think a wogman is up there(or down there maybe) watching us poop and shower and do the lovin'.

Like I said, a lot of people don't go into spamorama. I didn't know the news had broken until last night.

And besides, the ginger fucker at the very least deserves a thread in his memory :D

Maybe a merge or transfer of posts over?

I'll try that later when I get access to my laptop. I'd be afraid I might make a cunt of it.

Em might be better suited to the task.

EDIT: just seen the spamorama thread about Em not wanting to merge posts. Good call. Spamorama was indeed his home.

I didn't mean to imply that this thread was unwarranted. I just didn't want anybody to get the wrong impression that he didnt get pages and pages of messages, because he definitely did.

He was so random and out-there that he never failed to make me laugh. Bye woogie.

This news hit me in a way I didn't expect. You people are all meant to be zeroes and ones. You're the amorphous, nebulous creatures on the other end of the cables and wires and you shouldn't be significant in my life. But you are, and this news saddened me a lot. Our little corner of the internet is filled with normal people - as odd as we all are - and maybe through the time here, and how us who remain are, there's a kind of comfortable closeness. 

 

RIP Woogie. If there is an afterlife I hope you're ruinously drunk and laughing your ass off.

I just want to echo those sentiments, along with ones that Major has expressed here and elsewhere recently, and that I may have tried to also express in my own, drunkedass style

The response to this tragic event within this community of ours has just cemented in my mind what I had thought for a long time; that we're more than just a forum and that real friendships and connections have been forged here.  I've had the great pleasure to experience that first hand through meetings and actual proper life experiences with various of you guys.
