Posted:"I have very sad news to report: my best friend dan Gordon-Levitt merged with the Force on Sunday night. It was a tragic accident. I was with him when he passed, and he was not in pain or afraid. If you know details, please don't spread them around on the internet. I'll post when we get memorial plans sorted. There will be a small party on Friday night, and a big beautiful wake when we're ready."

Never met him or talked to him, but the bit I have seen of his spinning makes me sad that I will not see more.

It always looked like he was enjoying it so much, and it sounds like that was his approach to life as well.

It is always sad to lose a member of the community. The effects spread far beyond the immediate group of close friends.

My thoughts go out to those who have lost someone that obviously brought so much happiness to so many people.

Dan was a truly exceptional person with an inspirational outlook on life


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

I guess most of us are all up on Facebook now, posting our sadness when the news was leaked.

Watermelon Dan will be sorely missed, one of the greatest guys I've had the pleasure of spending time and spinning with.

EDIT: And I will NEVER FORGET when he got two hot girls to put tigerbalm on my nipples my first Firedrums.

Lost two people in the last 6 months who showed me a little kindness when I needed it most, and never got to tell them frown

Feel helpless but also that perhaps the best way to pay tribute is to not let another friend go without letting them know.

(And to apply liberal amounts of tigerbalm upon one's erogenous zones, naturally.)
