First off I really hope nobody finds this offensive to the situation at hand. It is not my intention at all, but the thought of the crew doing this does fill my heart with a sort of satirical happiness.
I've been going back and forth through this forum for the past 30 minutes looking for a place to post this, or wondering if I should post it at all. But after hearing of Ryan's passing and first wondering if it was a joke -> no it's real -> holy shit -> I feel awful for everyone. I started to think back to other celebrity deaths and how it affected those they worked with. I then remembered something Jeremy Clarkson (from Top Gear) said around the time one of their co-presenters almost died in a car crash, and while it didn't totally nullify the grief I felt, nor I'm sure the grief felt by those close to Ryan feel it did make me smile a bit. I'll leave the clip below:
I'm not saying Ryan can be (or should be replaced). Nor am I saying that his passing should be treated quite so flippantly, but I do think that sort of humour would be the type of thing Ryan would've appreciated, especially the sentiment to carry on. And hopefully it'll make some of you smile like it did to me.
Nothing stops the Giant Bomb.
Again, apologies if anyone thinks this is offensive. I will take it down if it is.
