Bobo_Vision bids farewell to Ryan Dunn


Ryan Dunn, a Pied Piper of Today’s American Youth, is Gone



Anyone who regularly peruses sites like Youtube, ebaumsworld, Break, and other video sharing sites will know quite well that one of the favorite pastimes of today’s youth in America is to film themselves doing really stupid shit.  What you must realize is, such inspiration was not born out of thin air.  Most credit lies squarely on the shoulders of the show Jackass, one of MTV’s crowning jewels.  MTV is no longer a music television station.  It is now a reality TV channel that specializes in the lifestyles and behavior of really stupid Americans.  The Real World, 16 and Pregnant, Jersey Shore, and, of course, Jackass – it’s like the Discovery Channel for retards.


Jackass starred Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera,  Steve-O, Ryan Dunn, and others.  Ryan Dunn was a lesser known personality on the show, but he had his stand-out moments, most notably, putting a toy car up his ass and getting an X-ray, much to the surprise of the doctor and his female assistant.  I just watched the video on Youtube and one of the viewers commented “He lived and died with car parts in his ass”.  Not the nicest thing to say, perhaps, but I thought it was clever. 


Ryan Dunn died of a car accident after driving his Porsche 911 off the road while having a blood alcohol level of 0.196 (more than twice the normal limit).  Also killed in the accident was Zachary Hartwell, a production assistant on Jackass Two.  Investigations show that he was driving between 132 to 140 miles per hour in a 55 limit zone. 


When a person dies, it’s sad, regardless of whether or not they were responsible for their own death.  In this case, there’s a greater responsibility.  When a person is surrounded by friends who constantly dare that person to be stupid, is it really so surprising when that person dies as a result of their own stupidity?  Being dared to do stupid acts was his bread and butter. It paid for the Porsche 911 he was driving.  The actors on Jackass are guys who think it’s funny and cool to do things which put themselves at risk for great bodily harm and injury, and they have conveyed this message to the youth of America.  Was there any other inevitability than the untimely death of one of them?  The only thing they didn’t forsee was that one of their deaths would not be filmed during one of their stunts.


One of the Pied Pipers of the Jackass show is gone.  Where will the children who follow him go from here?

    Not a "car accident"

    by Sodomy Redux

    More like "being an idiot" is what killed him. And curse you fucking idiots for writing out an obit for this loser.

    I mean, dickwad was driving 150 mph drunk, with passengers, too! What the fuck was he expecting??

    Hey, why can't we say "accident," again?

    by DudeRobert125

    Because "accident" implies there's nobody to blame.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:30 p.m. CST

    I was actually proud of AICN for not posting an obit for Ryan Dunn

    The guy did not deserve an obit after driving drunk. Also, there is a ban button somewhere find it and use it.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:42 p.m. CST

    A pied piper of today's american youth???


    The only place this dipshit is qualified to lead me to the produce section. Dumb fukking idiot shouldve kept his ass off of TV and stayed where he shouldve been--checking my groceries or greeting me at Wal Mart. GO FUCK YOURSELF DUNN. AND BAM. YOU TOO LOSTBOY FOR WHINNING ABOUT THIS FOR A WEEK. knoxville gets a pass cause he seemed to be hesistant later in life about doing stupid shit. plus he made me laugh in BIG TROUBLE

    Fuck off.

    by Cartagia

    Actually bowing down and posting an obit for this? Fuck you AICN.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:43 p.m. CST

    Cos no other actor ever died from being reckless before


    Sure we glorify River Phoenix, Heath Ledger, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain cos they were way more famous. Not like their deaths weren't through their own ignorance, friends sharing vices and tragically ironic. The Jackass guys set themselves apart from the mindless freaks with sweet emotional beats, great sense of comedy and inventiveness that all those other pricks couldn't match. Ryan Dunn may have been in an environment that encouraged recklessness but hey thats showbiz. To rail on him performing complex, outlandish stunts but glorify celebs who are frequent drug users is awful. Grow up.

    How is it possible to feel sorry for this guy?

    by JamesWest

    He killed himself being stupid. It was bound to happen and the rest of his nitwit friends will likely be joining him soon enough by stupid acts of their own. Is it a shame he died? Sure. But how does one feel sorry for an idiot?

  • July 1, 2011, 2:44 p.m. CST

    Now Jackass 4 can be dead-icated to him...

    by MoneyGrabSequel

    10 to 1 says at least one of those guys gets a tattoo of Dunn. I really have no sympathy for him and what's Dunn is done.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:45 p.m. CST



    Why shouldnt we blame dunn for killing his passenger?!? Youre the type of Neanderthal that blames the victim if she gets raped cause she was scantily dressed therefore asking for it. Fuck you asshole.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:45 p.m. CST

    Those of you complaining that he got an obit....

    by Bobo_Vision

    ...probably didn't read it. This is my response to those constantly asking for a Ryan Dunn obit. It's pretty fair. <p> Thanks, AICN for posting it. I love you guys!!!!

  • July 1, 2011, 2:45 p.m. CST

    Where will the children who follow him go from here?

    by art123guy

    Probably to a bar to get drunk and drive 132 to 140 miles per hour in a 55 limit zone

  • We need to ban together and demand this post be removed!

    All those guys you listed had one thing in common--they were talented. Ryan Dunn-not so much. They got drunk and high and did stupid shit you would do in the back alley of a 7-11 on a friday night but wouldnt be dumb enough to tape it. head to Hot Topic bitches--i'm sure they are clearing out all the Tim Burton shit to make way for Ryan Dunn shirts and Jackass DVDs.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:49 p.m. CST

    bobo_vision: Yeah, nice try.


    AICN caved, that's all there is to it. Slapping a "please, won't you think of the children?!?!" message on it doesn't mean a goddamn thing. All the hands have been wrung already. What the fuck was the point of this?

  • July 1, 2011, 2:50 p.m. CST

    I read it

    by Cartagia

    Being well written and fair doesn't mean it should have been posted ever. That doesn't mean that Harry and Co. had to bow before the whims of a few fucking trolls demanding an obit and posting one from anyone, let alone a talkbacker (no offense).

  • July 1, 2011, 2:52 p.m. CST

    whining, self righteous assholes

    by Ye Not Guilty

    First a bunch of self righteous assholes whine because AICN hadn't posted an obituary for Dunn. Now that they have, a different group of self righteous douchebags complain about that. All of you losers stfu. Nobody gives a shit what any of you think.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:52 p.m. CST

    Good riddance, you worthless asshole...

    by Mr. Waturi

    Ryan's death was not an "accident." He did not accidentally pour alcohol into his system, nor did he accidentally fall into the driver's seat of a car and drive away. This guy was an arrogant irresponsible piece of shit who killed his friend. He's lucky he died, or else he'd be in jail right now. Thank God he didn't kill anybody else.

    You bring nothing to new the conversation. I mean, I'll give you points for better grammar than the typical AICN article, but what's the point? Concern that kids will act just like Dunn and drive drunk? Huh?

  • July 1, 2011, 2:55 p.m. CST

    ye not guilt, damn well said

    by hey_kobe_tell_me_how_your_ass_tastes

    the point you miss though is that the trolls and assorted 'paths on here love to bitch, that is their therapy and whole purpose in life they bitch about aicn in general but would be the first to cry if it ever did shut down because then were would they go to bitch where anyone would pay the slightest bit of attention to them? their own site? hell no, they get bored too soon listening to an echo chamber so, even your reasonable post will fall on (mostly) deaf ears (there are a few who will listen) because that is just the way it works for some around these parts now wait for the trolls and their assorted ass kissers and enablers and socks to gather

  • July 1, 2011, 2:56 p.m. CST

    look up the definition of accident

    by G00mp

    Just because you're drunk doesn't mean you crashed on purpose. It's possible to be "at fault" for an accident.

    This jackass does not deserve respect nor an obit

    by Peter Sullivan

    Bobo, you are dead wrong with your analysis of this jackass's death. And no, I am not using jackass as a term of endearment. I have perused these videos you speak of, the youth doing really stupid shit, and I have often wondered where the motivation came from. Thank you for clarifying that "Jackass" as the "pied piper" of our youth. So now I know that Ryan Dunn is not only responsible for the car accident fatality, but also for the various broken bones, burns, brain damage, torn ligaments, etc. that have resulted from said "really stupid shit." It is not sad that Ryan Dunn died. Perhaps it is sad that it did not happen sooner, perhaps Mr. Hartwell's life might have been spared. Or the youth following the "pied piper" might have been spared some expensive medical bills. I'm glad that being a jackass bought him a car. I'm very glad that being a jackass cost him his life. Unfortunately someone else had to die in the process. Now maybe the children can follow someone with a brain. RIP Ryan Dunn. Good riddance. Thanks for the obit.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:58 p.m. CST

    I already forgot this guy died until seeing this...

    by Andrew Coleman

    Still waiting for one of the Jackass guys to die doing something not regular stupid. Drunk driving is regular stupid and reckless. Would have had more respect if he died stuffing a scorpion up his own ass or something. I mean you die like that and you're a bad ass. Drunk driving and taking someone else with you, the exact opposite of bad ass.

  • July 1, 2011, 2:58 p.m. CST

    AICN picked the most chickenshit way to cave, too.


    We won't do an obit, but we'll get a TALKBACKER to do it! Are you running for office, Harry?

  • July 1, 2011, 2:59 p.m. CST

    Hey Mr. Waturi


    You look like a bag of shit stuffed in a cheap suit.

  • July 1, 2011, 3 p.m. CST

    Not worth mentioning

    by freerangecelt

    but of course the young'uns idolize these morons. He died irresponsibly because he was irresponsible. The same people who eulogize meth dealers who get their asses blown away in deals gone bad cry over morons who get piss drunk and wrap their expensive toys around trees and kill another human being in the process. Take it from someone who survived being hit by a drunk driver, fuck those bastards.

    Huh, imagine that

    by CT1

    More passive-aggressive expression from the head honchos around here I see, a nice little smarmy sarcastic "obit" by a talkbacker, although I guess this way you can avoid another "D. Vader"-like incident in a "real" obit column, obviously you wouldn't be able to maintain any sort of decorum for this particular individual's passing, but why not just put up the fucking Scott Pilgrim animated GIF again when you want to show how pissed off and petulant you're feeling against Talkbackers? I guess thanks for the try, but no thanks.

    This obituary is masterful in how it controls the talkback.


    6.20.11 (date of death) 6+20+11= 37. 4 (# of paragraphs in obit) 37 + 4 = 41 41 + 37 = 78 7+8 = 15. What is 15 - 9? 6 Lucky number 6....invert the 6 and it becomes 9. which was a pretty dull though visually impressive animated film. Very smart....very.... bobo_vision transforms into boob_vision It's a farce, a misogynistic farce. Very clever.

  • You don't have to be too smart to not drink and drive or drive your Porsche 132mph in a 55mph zone. To say it was inevitable that one of them should die like this is like saying none of them have control over their behavior or choices, and that's incorrect.

    I'm the type of Neanderthal that blames the victim if she gets raped cause she was scantily dressed as she knowingly snuck her way into a prison full of big scary serial rapists and proceeded to give lap dances and rub tits in their face and grab their cocks, therefore asking for it.

    I'm glad that AICN allowed a TALKBACKER to write the Obit

    by D.Vader

    AICN didn't post an obit for Dunn, I didn't care. The man was in three movies, and the definition "movie" is a bit stretched in those cases. I'm glad AICN staff members didn't write the obit. That would have definitely been an example of caving in to pressure. But I'm more glad that they posted an obit written by a talkbacker. There was obviously a small demand to see an obit here on the website, and if AICN wasn't going to do it, posting a talkbacker's thoughts on the subject is a great way to A) show that AICN *does* listen to its readership and their concerns (despite years of evidence to the contrary) and B) a great way to really make this place feel like a community. Kudos Bobo_Vision.

    bobo_vision -- you should have mentioned Dunn's early days

    by MooseMalloy

    How Bam Margera and his friends turned projects from a media class in high school into a series of videos that owned the skate world starting in 1999. I first saw CKY2 in 2000, and thought back then that it could be tamed down and put on TV (or at least cable). From humble beginnings to worldwide fame and influence; a true American success story!

    Jesus Harry...

    by DougMcKenzie

    I remember a decade of telling the trolls in the TB to go get fucked... now you are kowtowing to them? What, when they demand an obit for the lead grip on Krull, will you bend to them as well?

  • He doesn't deserve this. He was obviously a dumb mother fucker. I'm not saying he got what he deserves, because he didn't...but if any of us had been on that same stretch of road as he was on that night...we might be dead. So fuck him and fuck anyone who mourns his death.

  • ... Only if you're talented? Got it. There have been countless times when I've gone out drinking with my friends, and was faced with the choice of getting into a car with them behind the wheel when they were clearly too shitfaced to be driving. I always choose to take a cab, or even walk home. Often times, I can convince my buddies to do the same. Life IS about the choices we make... That's why that rape analogy sucks real bad.

  • He said he didn't know anything about Ryan Dunn and none of the other contributers had anything to say about him, BUT that not a single talkbacker had submitted an obituary...even the ones demanding one. A day later and still I decided to send in my version, and it got up. <p> Those of you who want to get AICN to print your stuff...don't ask in the talkbacks....just send it to them. The worst thing that'll happen is it won't get printed. Take the New York Asian Film Festival for example....if someone here were to see something at NYAFF that was worthy of more attention and sent in a long as it's decently written...there's a good chance it would get printed. I'd do it like I did in past years but I don't live in New York anymore....

    How is this person a murderer again?

    I understand he had a friend in the car with him, and I haven't exactly been keeping up with the latest details, but unless it's been reported that this guy held a gun to his pal's head and threatened to shoot him if he didn't get into the car, then calling him a murderer is just plain factually incorrect. genderblender is right about rape. It isn't a game. People don't just get to randomly dictate what is or is not rape on a mere whim. Same thing with murder. It either is, or it isn't. Did this guy make a horrible, terribly dumb mistake? absolutely. Looks like his friend made the exact same one, though. He's equally responsible for his own death.

    WOW!......AICN CAVED IN!

    by Darth_Kaos

    My respect for the site has went down greatly. This guy has done nothing to further filmmaking, let along geekdom to have an obit on this site or any other site pertaining to movies. I can't believe you guys gave in.The only obit he deserves is from his friends and family. But this turn of events has proven two things to how this site has become. 1. Harry now gives a shit about what talkbackers wants, when he really didn't use to. 2. and confirms that AICN is now and simply a tool. This site is becoming like MySpace...loosing touch....the clock is ticking.

    So long, jackass!

    by I_Snake_Plissken

    First, I think it’s a pussy move for AICN to post this from another talkbaker, seems like quite a dodge. I, like a few others who have posted, actually thought more of AICN for not celebrating this dumbfuck’s death. Secondly, if this was anybody but a “celebrity,” would anybody think twice about eviscerating this asshole? I don’t care who it is, anybody who gets that drunk and then gets in a car and drives (especially that fast) deserves no pity. He got exactly what he deserved – I feel sorry for his passenger, but one can only assume he knew what kind of chance he was going to be taking – them’s the breaks. Did he have a bad childhood? WAAAAHHH! Was he not loved enough? WAAAAAAHH!! Anybody who gives two shits for this asshole has never had their life impacted by a drunk driver. I am just thankful he and his passenger were the only ones killed. Anybody, celebrity or not, who acts that selfish and irresponsible should never be given a pass for his actions. Rest in pieces Ryan Dunn! You really were a true jackass!

    he already said that he's never seen Jackass so why would he do an obit on someone he didnt know? Very kind of him to offer to post a fan written obituary though. and congrats to bobo for stepping up like a man. As for the haters: Dunn's taint had more charisma than all of you combined.

    He is a murderer. Think about this: Had he lived and only the passenger died he wouldve been charged with manslaughter. Given the high BAC, he would've had his ass handed to him. He did the honorable thing and died too, saving the taxpayers of that one horse town A lot of money.

    by Sodomy Redux

    I've never driven drunk or drove high, and I've smoked my fair share of weed and drank more than my fair share of beer. The thing is, I'm not a piece of shit like you - I realize that if I get behind a 2 ton vehicle when I'm fucked up, I might hurt or kill an innocent person. So I don't. I've slept and puked in my car rather than drove because I'm not human garbage like you.

  • July 1, 2011, 5:31 p.m. CST

    Obituary does not mean you are honoring someone.

    by dixieflyer

    The obit is fine with me. It just brings notice that someone relevant to the community has died. I don't see why Dunn would not be of interest to this community to some degree. They can be a saint or shitbag, it is just about cold hard information. Now to honor or give a eulogy is a different thing.

  • makes him a murderer in my book. I don't care how funny he was. When OJ dies will AICN honor him with an obit because he was funny in the Naked Gun series?

    Honestly, the most famous thing Ryan Dunn did...

    by Zombiana_Jones

    ...Was get drunk and blow himself up in his fucking car. Now, Knoxville, Bam, or maybe Steve-O...But Ryan Dunn was a second fiddle, if you ask me. Never even heard of the man until this, and I watched months of 'Jackass' while I was working in Germany...Because between that and Chapelle, it's about all that was on in English...Honestly, I think the justification for an obituary is tenuous at best, unless it somehow helps some dumbass to wake up and finally smell the coffee...

    Too late.

    by Gerry Manderin

    The morons' attention has already moved on to the epic Bay-nality of TRANSFORMERS 3: THE DARK SIDE OF THE BALANCE SHEET. Why cry about a fellow idiot's death when you can jack it with two hundred other assholes to 500-foot robots sticking their red, white and blue missiles up Chicago's bum? America, fukk yeah.

  • When an offender kills accidentally or without specific intent to kill in the course of an applicable felony, what might have been manslaughter is escalated to murder. Pennsylvania recognizes the felony murder rule, and depending on the prosecutor, the combination of drunk driving and driving nearly 100 miles over the speed limit could have caused Dunn to be charged with first degree murder.

He doesn't deserve an obituary at all - to all those who disagree, I ask you this:how would you feel if the passenger who was taken so cruelly was your friend or relative? Would you want Ryan honoured so? He made people laugh, and he went to a lot of pain to achieve it. But it isn't an excuse.

    @southtexasmoviefuck there's a difference here, numbnuts...

    by Zombiana_Jones

    ...Sure, poor decision to choose to ride with Dunn. HOWEVER, he was what's known as a PASSENGER. Which means the DRIVER is supposed to take the RESPONSIBILITY for the passenger's safety. So who's fault is it? DUNN's. Responsibility...It's a word that has apparently lapsed into obsolescence. I once knew someone who hit someone trying to CARJACK him...AND THE ASSHOLE CARJACKER FUCKHEAD SUED HIM. Everybody's in the business of pawning off responsibility for everything...On the Legal system...The welfare system. The government. And where is it getting anyone? We're about to default on our huge debt and get pwned by China. Because we were too much of a fuckstick to take responsibility and say, 'Hey, I make $4.25 an hour at McDonalds. Even though they'll let me, maybe I shouldn't sign that mortgage on that $500,000 house...' We've watched too much 'Jackass' and FUCKING RETARDED MICHAEL BAY 'TRANSFUCKER' MOVIES. Don't be upset, then, when your government tries to decide 'what's best for you'...You've handed over your rights by not voting, by not being more involved and RESPONSIBLE. It's always someone else's job...My advice? When you wake up in the fucking MATRIX BATTERY FARM, take the BLUE pill and go back to fucking sleep. Fuck democrats. Fuck republicans. fuck the tea party, the whigs, the green party, and every other party. They're all a fucking sham. The career politicians running this country are a fucking abomination to the system---The founding fathers never intended government to be run like that. But just mind the status quo and jerk off in 'Transfuckers 3' like a good little drone that you are. I'm 'Libertarian', and fuck them, too. Know what I'd like to see?

    The majority of you suck

    by DaFiedla

    The reason movies became popular to begin with is so people could escape their regular lives. The Jack Ass series epitomizes that idea. Watch idiots do stupid shit and laugh that it's not you having it happen to. Ryan Dunn was a big part of that. He also fucked up and paid the ultimate price. @zombiana_Jones, take a Valium and relax. You're so angry you don't even realize how bad you contradict yourself. Your ideas on responsibility are mostly valid, but in the process you totally absolve Hartwell of ANY responsibility for getting in the car. And how you spun this into an irrational rant about politics and Transformers 3 is beyond me. One question, what size foil hat do you wear. For the others bitching about an obit, it's for those left behind you fucktards, not for the person that died. Show some respect for his friends and his fans that are mourning his death.

    by Zombiana_Jones

    Perhaps you mistook my rant on the greater cause of this accident...Hartwell chose poorly, and I said it at the very beginning. He was irresponsible, too...However, my point was that ultimately, the responsibility for his death, for the most part, lay with Dunn at the wheel. Drinking, especially the amount that they ostensibly did, removes inhibitions like climbing into a car with a drunk...It's hard to make the right decision there. My larger point is that we as a society seem to lack the responsibility and, frankly, the balls to tell it like it is. Instead of saying, 'yeah...he was a drunk idiot and died, end of story'...We moan and groan about what a tragedy it is, how 'millions of people all over the world are crying', and other utter fallacies. It's natural selection. People who make the wrong decisions don't survive to add to the gene pool. We're all so used to looking at everyone else to figure out how to act that it's killing us. Political correctness, my ass. America was founded with a healthy dose of 'this is how this shit's gonna be,' and not 'Hey, do you mind if we become an independent country? Please don't hate us.' We've lost our individualistic willfulness and determination to do what's right...And replaced it by shoving a smartphone in everyone's fucking ass...Telling them that if they get in an auto accident, they should call some scumbag fucking lawyer to sue the nuts off somebody THEY have probably personally wronged. Transformers is a target because it's one of the few films i've walked out on. It was just mindless, mindless dissonance...And to me, it represents the mindless shit that's filling our kids' minds on a daily basis from all sides. Sure, it's fun to watch some dumbass stick a toy car up his ass and surprise some medical idiots...As I said before, I watched quite a bit of Jackass, and yeah... I enjoyed it. But I put it into perspective...And I didn't just sit there and watch shit all day. I did other things more constructive, because that's what a responsible person does. He realizes what he should and shouldn't do, and he moderates what he does. Unlike Dunn. Unlike Hartwell. And unlike all the asshole 'crying millions' that can't see the forest for the trees. I apologize for nothing. Sure, make funny cracks about foil hats and Glenn 'the antichrist' Beck. You'll all be fucking Zombie hors d'oeuvres when the apocalypse comes..... Good? Bad? I'll be the guy with the gun.

  • July 1, 2011, 8:57 p.m. CST

    my rebuttal


    what about the kids they influenced to do heroin.. are they completely innocent of that? okay so he took someone with him, but we don't know their circumstance. have you ever thought about getting in the passenger seat when the driver is drunk and decided against it? THAT'S YOUR LIFE TOO! part of putting your life in someones hands is making a decision that the person is responsible. its a whole sorry affair its true. im not saying he isn't to blame for this situation but the show never promoted drinking and driving, just like nirvana never told their fans to shoot up. truth is celebrities offer us pain and recklessness for our entertainment and we encourage them as a society. the way they put their lives in danger for our amusement is the same as britney (even less knowingly) having a meltdown to keep the tabloids satisfied. WE encourage it. and they supply it. and you know what? I REALLY ENJOYED THE JACKASS MOVIES. Just like we all enjoyed deeply unsettling nirvana music. its all just a sorry state of affairs and demonizing one egg that happened to break and take another with it is to ignore the smell of omelettes thats been cooking for years.

    Manslaughter isn't murder, though. There's a very wide chasm of difference between the two. I'm not well versed in the Jackass catalog. I don't know where this dude ranks in the pantheon of guys who apparently shove things up their own asses. I just don't see why anybody should be demonized for someone else's mistake. Plenty of people drink. Plenty of them get drunk. What separates most people from these two souls is that most folks are responsible enough human beings to stop themselves from driving drunk, or at the very least climbing into a car with an intoxicated driver. I've never driven drunk, never been a passenger with a drunk driver, and never will be. Personal responsibility isn't too much to ask for. I would understand the vitriol if he had hit a pedestrian or t-boned another car. His buddy had a choice, and he knew exactly what he was getting into when he hopped into his bombed friend's ride.

    There's just no getting through to you. The 'zombie apocalypse' thing is a joke...Or should I call it a metaphor? I'll sum it up. Until we as a culture wise up and start seeing that the instant-gratification, junkfood lifestyle we find ourselves slipping increasingly into is wrong for us, there's nothing one person can do. I can try to persuade people online to wake up and look at your daily choices...And make some small changes. I'm not saying to live like a monk; fuck all that shit. Just be more responsible with what you do---with your life, with your kids' lives...With your everyday financial and political decisions. That's all I can really do. You drive my point home perfectly...You see, the answer isn't with me...It isn't with someone else. It's with you. It's with everyone. That's why we're on a slippery slope into a world of shit right now---We keep looking for someone else to wipe our ass for us. That's all...Really, if you haven't 'got it' yet, you aren't going to. Hope you taste bad, maybe you'll survive....Good luck.

    This would be like giving an obit to Snooki or Kim Kardashian

    by sunwukong86

    Someone who's famous and we're not really sure why

  • I was a talkbacker for a short while there in 2009 after I got banned here by Moriarty, and during that year I submitted 3 or 4 movie reviews to give some attention to some movies I thought deserved it. One was on a documentary about CBGB's, the other was coverage of the New York Asian Film Festival. I also did it to help support that site so that it might attract some cool people to the talkbacks to create an environment similar to the talkbacks here...that never happened. But I was never a writer there, and was never paid for those contributions. <p> Also, it became quickly apparent that that site and its talkbacks were lame. All the articles were basically Republicans bitching about how much they hated movies. I realized that websites built by AICN talkbackers could never be any fun....and as you mentioned, I was banned from there for speaking my mind. <p> Most talkbackers love to bitch about movies. That's what's fun about the talkbacks here. But if any of those talkbackers created their own website, it ceases to be fun, because these guys are like monkeys flinging poo. In these talkbacks, the monkeys fling poo at both Harry and AICN, but also at movies and Hollywood. But when they build their own site, there is no target for them to fling poo at anymore. They keep flinging it at Hollywood, but that gets old. ALSO, they don't want anyone flinging poo in their own house....SO, all the monkeys who follow them to their website become sychophants and tell them how much their articles rock, when they actually suck, and if you are honest about anything written at their site, then the monkeys will fling poo at you. Watching monkeys fling their poo at the zoo can be fun, but living in the cage with that monkey...not so much fun. <p> That's why all the websites created by talkbackers suck. For example, there's a talkbacker now who posts in every single talkback over and over again, and he thinks he's very funny, and he has a handful of monkeys who think he's funny, too, but do any of those monkeys like darth_kong frequent his website? Of course not. You need a website like this which has Harry who loves movies, even though his articles can be grammatical nightmares. <p> Anyhow...getting back to you, followkrull...the fact that you think I'm a writer at that site you mentioned which I haven't posted at since 2009 tells me that a) you're not all there mentally and b) your life hasn't progressed much since 2009.

    Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Judy Garland, Brad Renfro. I have not made any jokes about Ryan. It's not my style. I don't get off on that kind of shit. I also don't use the deaths of other people as a soap box or a lecture sermon. Given the nature of the this event. I'm going to break this personal rule of mine and speak my mind in regards to this incident and what it brought out in the online line community. When people need help. When they really want it. They will seek and find it. There is no need to advertise the halls, that goes against the rules of the fellowship, and I personally saw that as an act of cowardice's and a hide behind in regards to the original heartless statement made shortly after Ryan's death. Dunn lived his life the way he wanted to live it the way his friends encouraged him to. They had a blast and they did some really stupid shit, granted most of the time it was only about the ride with no ill will/malice meant towards one another. I saw a happy guy who really enjoyed life and found ways to get cheap thrills and laughs out of it every day. To all the people getting off making the jokes and talking shit and being holier than thou and playing the "I told you so" game. All I can say is this. You are sad. Really fucking sad. Yeah I get it. He's a Celeb!!!!! We love this shit! Love talking trash about the people the in the media. Being a Celeb means 99.9 percent of the world doesn't know the real you- In reality all they know is what they see on the Movies and TV. Even on reality shows like "Jackass" some of that personality is fabricated and exaggerated. Back in the day when the 3 Stooges were big, people used to walk up to these actors and hit them with fingers in the eyes, and these people thought- "Hey, it's ok! You guys love doing this stuff each other on your show" Guess what, it's not cool when random strangers walk up to you and poke and hit you, because hey your character on TV does it. He has a family and friends. Real people with real feelings. Who he grew up with and loved, and those people don't need to read and hear such heartless cruel things about him. His whole 34 years spent here on earth wasn't about that one mistake. He didn't live in a bar, he wasn't making headlines as a drug addict or alcoholic. Dare to be the one guy who says "Fuck all you losers talking shit about someone you never knew." Doesn't mean he's not a real person, doesn't mean he doesn't have other real people who knew and cared about him. \/ And if you still wanna be a prick about it \/ May you never be blessed with a tragic death of someone close to you, and may it never make headlines or become a topic for the whole world to jerk off too Fucking Sad. Plain and simple.

You don't give your real name on the book or show your photo because of your crimes against humanity. But again, I guess you think that adds to your cool you shill your book for one of the biggest cinematic douchebags in the last few decades. <p> And what, you are moralizing because you think my opinions aren't classy? And you think Massawyrm isn't classy because he tore the Sex in the City move a new one and made metaphors that he was raping that movie? Well I'll tell you what Massawyrm and I didn't do, Vern.

    euyh.... guys?

    by MoffatBabies

    You do all realize this is just one huge wank, don't you? There's the people joking about it, the ones chastising them for the jokes. Then there are the ones posting here to get off on the superiority kick by going after and shaming ANY point of view, no matter what it is. Every angle has a shaming up its sleeve somewhere. Not hard enough on the guy? SHAME! Too hard on him? SHAME! Whining about the lot of them? SHAME! Telling your own experiences losing someone to a drunk driver? SHAME ON YOU! This isn't about YOU! Have something to say about that? SHAME! Is it murder? An accident? Was it inevitable? Is this obit some kind of dark joke? Is it deserved? Fuck it. I'm delivering a lesson to the lot of you and if you don't want to read it, go fuck yourselves. If you don't need this information, you'll know it. You don't need to say a thing. Years ago, I had an ongoing argument with a lawyer friend over a hypothetical, one loosely based on reality. A Jehovah's Witness is walking outside in broad daylight. A drunk drives into her and critically injures her in a way that requires that she receive a transfusion or DIE. Well, the problem is, Jehovah's Witnesses do not accept the blood of another into their bodies. It's against their religious beliefs. They won't even take their OWN blood. So the argument was... is it the drunk driver's fault that she died because she refused,in advance and through family, to receive a transfusion, or is it her's because she clings to her beliefs more than she clings to her own survival? As a fellow atheist, he solidly believed that although the drunk driver was responsible for her injury, he was not responsible for her death. That fault was hers and hers alone, in his opinion. I differ. When we walk out into the world, we know the risks. We know that every time we cross the barriers of our domiciles we run the risk of heading straight into any or all worst case scenarios. This includes everything from Jehovah's Witnesses to... yes.... Haemophiliacs!! Haemophilia would produce the same outcome. No belief system or appropriated stone age superstitions would be able to absorb the blame. And I win this argument because of that. Or any other possible worst case scenario from sickly toddler to decrepid old man already on the precipice of death. When you get behind the wheel of a car, you take on ANY AND ALL (as an adult) worst case scenarios. You become responsible for the well being of anyone in your way, and YES... anyone in your passenger seats. Even adults, drunk or not. Stupid or not. That key and that wheel are YOURS. But you're thinking.. well some of you... that this is just me soap-boxing, EXPLOITING this loss in order to feel superior... or smarter than you.. or whatever you may be dreaming up. BULLSHIT! I'm going to take it a step beyond soap-boxing and say that the remaining members of the Jackass crew and Dunn's friends/family need to MAN the fuck up at this time and use this tragedy (no matter how some of you empty fucks see it, it's a tragedy for someone.. for many) as an opportunity to help prevent this kind of thing happening again. By USING (AKA: EXPLOITING .. yes, not a bad word in a Capitalist society or any society worth living in, you pseudo-south-park-conservative windbags) this tragedy to help prevent further tragedy. Yes, stop TWEETING back at people in your grief-driven temper tantrum and get moving on getting out there in public and helping to get the message out that when you get behind the wheel of a 3563 LB (average weight of an American car in 2009) moving OBJECT which you CONTROL and are legally responsible for... DON'T FUCKING DO IT DRUNK! And if you, the people who apparently respect the man and love him, already are working on sending that message... to the people who respect and follow you... then good for you. If not, go fuck yourselves. You don't deserve my respect, sympathy or tactfulness. Or anyone else's. "We're grieving right now... myahhh... stop it.." just doesn't cut it. You lost that when you went in front of the cameras and people watched in numbers. Now you have to face that there are some consequences and responsibilities that come with that. You can choose to ignore them, or not. But I can also choose to think you don't deserve an OUNCE of tact or sympathy if you don't. And it doesn't make me feel good to say it. You're welcome.

    ad hominem attacks?

    Fuck Ryan Dunn... where's the obit for Margaret Tyzack..?

    by workshed

    One of the greatest film and TV actresses of all-time died last week yet not a whisper here... ...that's right - she had something called 'TALENT' and was probably in something dear to your heart, whether it be '2001', 'Clockwork Orange', 'I' Clavdivs' and many, many more. Dunn, on the other hand was a jackass who, along with the other members of Jackass, helped bring about the intellectual decline of planet Earth. Sure, I'm a fan of the art of slapstick/mindless violence - especially in the hands of Mayall and Edmondson - but Jackass 3D was embarrassing; the sight of men whose hearts really aren't in their job any more. Johnny Knoxville had a 'why do I have to hang out with these dicks?' look on his face throughout the movie. At one point, when he smiled, I thought his face was going to crack. Harry... who the fuck is Bobo_Vision? And how come he gets a free pass to write an article/obit on this douche manslaughterer..? Shame on AICN. I thought you'd stuck to your guns.

    ad hominem

    by MoffatBabies

    always makes me think of barbershop quartets. I can just hear them singing it in succession....multiplying their velvety-smooth made-for-hair-cutting harmonic progression... AD HOMINEM (baritone) AD HOMINEM! (baritone and alto) AD HOMINEM!! (baritone, alto and the normal looking guy) AD HOMINEM!!! (baritone, alto, the normal guy and the one that had the vasectomy or something all together for one last...) AD HOMINEM!!!! And it also makes me hungry for grits for some reason.

    by BadMrWonka

    After over a decade on this site, I'm through apologizing to jerks like you for being literate. It's always the first or second insult I get, whenever people notice that I don't write like a teenager that has to pee really badly. If I have to endure some SUPER painful insults insinuating that I might have a cat or wear pajamas, I think I can bear it. So keep 'em coming, if it makes you feel better. My only point was that reading your angry, defensive comments in the talkbacks, I can see more than enough of your self-loathing personality to understand why you would write something like you did about this guy. Yet again, I'm left wondering why anyone at AICN thought it was a good idea to give a voice to a deluded jerk with the phoniest sense of indignation and self-righteousness I've seen on the internet in a long time. I know you don't believe any of the pseudo-psychological nonsense you wrote about kids following in Dunn's footsteps. You just wanted to feel like a big, important man for standing up on your soapbox and moralizing. I also suspect that (same as I was) you were annoyed by people clamoring for an obit for this guy in every talkback. I'm hoping sooner or later, Harry or Quint or someone wake up and take this bullshit down. Until then, I guess you can be the big man and tell me some more about my taste in white wine. I prefer a crisp Sauvignon Blanc if you want to send me some.

    And still no mention of Gene Colan's passing

    by Stalkeye

    The artist that was well known for his stint on Tomb of Dracula and not to mention the co creator of Blade. (y'know, that movie based on a obscure vampire hunter that helped to usher in the mainstream of marvel FILMS?!?) No offense, but I'm not giving this guy Dunn a "RIP" although it's unfortunate that he passed. but I have more respect for those who use their talents/skills for creative contributions as oppossed to a bunch of guys who make a living from riding bikes on banisters or putting firecrackers up their asses. SMH*

  • He's a drunk driving douche who had almost killed people before due to his idiot drink driving ways and didn't bother to learn from such idiocy, instead constantly driving like a maniac, while drunk and while not, leading to several crashes, and such behaviour ultimately led to him getting himself killed in that same exact way - as a drunk driving douche. And he managed to kill somebody else at the same time too. Giving this drunk driving douche the hero and remembrance treatment is one of the most sickening things I've seen on AICN in quite some time. This man was responsible for not only killing himself, but also for killing somebody else, all because he was too arrogant and too stupid to learn anything from past mistakes, and that does not make him worthy of remembering as anything other than a drunken idiot cunt for all time.

    Your opinion is your own and something you're entitled to. I think most people's problem (those who have a problem with it, that is) is that a) it's not really an "obituary" in the classic sense, just a VERY thinly veiled attack on the guy and b) AICN themselves are being massive dicks by posting it as an obit.

  • But this fuckhead was going 140mph!!! If Dunn's friends really gave a shit about him they would have confronted him about his recklessness and alcoholism long ago. Instead they reinforced it. They have a lot to think about now, if their brains are even capable of it.

    by Vern

    Keep up like this and I'm gonna have to cross you off the list of people to write my obituary. This is your second to last warning before I put you in a 2-month probationary period. Look buddy, you can make your judgments on me, I don't give a shit. I suspect you're smart enough to know that all that bullshit you just slung at me has nothing to do with anything. My only point is that it's shitty to write an "obituary" about somebody where you call them a retard and criticize them. I don't care who it is. You're an adult. You know this. Who posted this for you? I'm betting they didn't read it closely and assumed you were a sincere person trying to honor a dead guy. Harry, Quint and friends are nice people who normally wouldn't post something so mean-spirited. If you really truly don't understand why your post is shitty that's your business. But I wrote for Ain't It Cool for ten years or so. I feel like at least a member of the extended family so I got a right to be embarrassed if they post some asshole-ish business like this.

  • I started skateboarding in 1985. Yes, I'm old, but what does skating have to do with the life and death of Ryan Dunn? Directly - nothing, but indirectly - everything. JACKASS was birthed from the skateboard world and the "skateboard video". The raunchy and esoteric skateboard magazine BIG BROTHER was unleashed on the world in 1992 and set the parameters of what the skateboarders life should be like. Was all of it for the better? Of course not, but how does it compare to an NFL player's partying ways or that of a Hollywood actor? When the magazine finally went under in the late 90's the remaining staff decided to get into television and JACKASS was born. The L.A. based Termaine, Knoxville, Steve-O (etc.) contingent contacted pro skater Bam Margera in PA to usurp the work he and his friends were doing with their skate and stunt video series known as CKY (Camp Kill Yourself). Ryan Dunn was one of these friends and his ticket to mass fame and wealth was punched that day. Dunn provided some of the most entertainingly grueling stunts of the franchise and always gave a little bit of crude class and good humor to the bits he starred or participated in. One of my favorite skit's was when he fought/got beat-up by a female Thai kick-boxer. Secretly, he may have been everyone's favorite "Jackass". It is absolutely clear that Ryan Dunn should be held up as an example of why you shouldn't drink and drive. It is also clear that he killed a friend of his as well as himself and that that is a terrible thing to have happened. Some of the alarmist reactions that have been posted would have a person believing that Zachary Hartwell was tied down to the passenger seat against his will while screaming bloody murder. No, it was two really drunk friends driving really fast and probably loving every moment of it up until the crash. It is truly fortunate that no one else was hurt, but then again Mr. Dunn probably knew that the rural winding road would not have heavy traffic on it at that time. Ryan Dunn and all the JACKASS guys are stars. That's not an opinion, but a fact. People loved their show and the following theatrical releases -- this is something that opponents of the show can never bring themselves to acknowledge. The alarmist reaction of bobo-vision, that being that some sort of suicidal/homicidal generation has been brought about by the creation of JACKASS, is nothing new, and is nothing that has not gone on before in one shape or another. For example, people have been hurling themselves down snow covered mountains on two flat wooden sticks for quite some time now, yet the world continues to spin. The "Doom Generation" that bobo_vision has imagined does not exist. Firstly, because the emulating JACKASS craze has been dying it's own natural death for awhile now, and secondly his background prevents him from fully appreciating JACKASS. To put it bluntly - there are sports and activities that are simply more masochistic than others. JACKASS successfully took a stuntman aesthetic and wrapped it all up in the foundation of "action sports". One reason a person may dislike JACKASS could be attributed to their avoidance of physical pain or exertion. As I stated before I grew up skating. I was already a comicbook/movie geek growing up, so I figured adding another hated activity to the resume wouldn't be that big of a deal. I have tasted concrete many, many times -- and also the thrill of victory over a successful trick made. It wasn't necessary to skateboard or BMX to appreciate JACKASS, but it helped. Once it caught on, those without such life experiences were drawn to it as well -- and how could they not? JACKASS provided entertainment not quite seen before. As I recall saying to a friend when showing him an episode for the first time - "It's a post-JACKASS world my friend". During the early 90's, me and friends would occasionally videotape each other with VHS and Video 8 cameras jumping off of roofs, fighting with each other, vomiting (no booze involved) and playing pranks (this off course between making short videos with plots and playing role playing games). I later met plenty of people who came of age around the same time who also taped some of the same exact things with their video cameras. In other words, the idea of JACKASS was already "in the air", a result of the proliferation of home video cameras, and it was just a matter of time before something like it would be a hit. Also, let's not forget the overwhelming debt the JACKASS guys owe to Tom Green. But let's end this with a reality check: The real reason why there is no impending generation of JACKASS wannabes taking over our sacred way of existence is a simple one. Because you eventually have to get a job (or jobs). Here's to Ryan Dunn. He was a professional entertainer and a great insulting clown -- and had many fans from all walks of life.

    Here is my obituary for Ryan Dunn

    by Surfaces_are_supposed_to_be_FLAT

    Ryan Dunn, you died in circumstances that befitted the way you lived - without any regard for your own life or the lives of those around you. Ryan Dunn, you shall be remembered only for filling your short-lived existence with acts of dare-devilry, depravity and reckless stupidity. You shall not be remembered for anything you may have done of merit or worth. Ryan Dunn, most of us never knew you, and judging by the way your suicidally dangerous lifestyle led to your death and the death of your friend - most of us are lucky to have never known you. Ryan Dunn, you leave behind a legacy of moronic, juvenile, disgusting and tasteless behavior that will no doubt be responsible for many other foolish young men idolizing you and emulating your reprehensible actions. Ryan Dunn, you wasted your life, and now we are wasting our time on the meaningless notions of your death. You are dead now Ryan Dunn. Good bye

    Bobo got it right.

    by kubricksnutsack

    He nailed it in one. While everyone bleats on about how funny this guy was, stop and think about his actual "talent". He hasn't got any. Scroll back in time to other funny people that have died: Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce, etc. and these people were genuinely funny because they had a talent and, more importantly, they used that lump of matter between their ears to make people laugh. This is a disturbing time when people can wail and gnash their teeth at the passing of someone who sole claim to fame is to stick a car up his rectum. Well done. Clever you, have a banana. If Dunn had pulled a similar feat twenty years ago, thirty years ago, forty years ago - he'd have probably been committed to a mental institution and gotten the treatment he obviously needed. But now, we put the idiots on a pedestal and worship them because idiot glee replaces genuine talent. Thinking hurts your head too much, dunnit? Imagine if Hicks and Bruce would be around today, they'd die on their ass because people would be screaming for them to shove toys up their bum in order to make a funny. I really don't think the Jackass generation ('cos what else can we call them) realises what a load of retarded crap they've been eating up all these years.

    by Stalkeye

    "Ryan Dunn died of a car accident after driving his Porsche 911 off the road while having a blood alcohol level of 0.196 (more than twice the normal limit). Also killed in the accident was Zachary Hartwell, a production assistant on Jackass Two. Investigations show that he was driving between 132 to 140 miles per hour in a 55 limit zone. " let this serve as a lesson you dim witted dipshits, DON'T FUCKING DRINK AND DRIVE! Each year, hundreds of pedestrians and motorists lose their lives thanks to some fucking selfish asshole who decides to endulge in drugs or alcohol before operating behind the wheel. yeah, and among the victims are CHILDREN. So y'know what, as tasteless or condesending bobo's comments are, i applaud his stance. and yes, America is being stupidified thanks to the aforemntioned reality shows, Lady Gaga, justin Bieber, Bay's Transfuckups films, Beck, Bachman, remakes and Rom Coms. America, fuck you. (OK, that last comment was just for laughs when making a parody of the "America, fuck yeah" song, however Dunn is not worthy of praise or sympathy. sowwies.)

  • And I was one of the few that called them out on it. Some Geek film site this turned out to be. I guess Ginzilla is busy bragging about his childhood experiences, video equipment,sawgs and his wife Yoko or whatever her name really is. At times, Harry is cool, but the fat fuck is often erratic moreso than ever. but yeah, I concur with bobo's sentiment. Dunn is done.

    Way to show your true colors, assholes

    by wcolbert

    I don't care if you didn't care for Jackass, or anyone on the show. You didn't even know the guy. You didn't know a damned thing about him other than what was presented to you on a scripted televised medium. Yet you arrogant little pieces of shit have the audacity to attack someone when they're gone? If you had some balls, you'd say something when he was still alive. But no- you're a bunch of whiney little pussies, who couldn't say half the things you say to somebody's face, because you know you'd get the living shit beaten out of you. That's why you do it over the internet- anonymity. And not only are you doing THIS over the're waiting until someone is DEAD. Not a shred of respectability to anyone who would do something so disgusting as to mock and berate another human being after their death. Not one. People had more respect for Bin Laden and Hitler when they died. Ryan fucked up. Yeah, he did something really stupid, and he died as a result. But don't for ONE second even DARE to act like you haven't done some really fucking IDIOTIC shit. Don't for one second act as if a lot of you haven't driven while drunk, or gone over the speed limit with another person in the car. Don't for one SECOND act like you're worth the shit that comes out of your own ass. Because you're not. When you die, nobody will mourn you. Ok, maybe a very few who you managed to fool into believing you had anything of worth to you- your close family. But that'll be it. The rest of the world will be oblivious to you having ever existed. And within 50 years, it will be as if you never did. So shut the fuck up, and show a little common human decency, you miserably little cunt rags. It's really not that difficult- if you didn't like the show, or the guy, *just don't say anything*. Enjoy your pathetic, worthless existence. While you can. I'm sure you'll die in some moronic way, most of the people who can't show some semblance of decency. And when you do, just remember...*nobody will give a shit*.

    @moosemalloy Dude you got it exactly right brother!

    by Dr. Francis B. Gross

    When a video camera entered my household in 1990, one of the first things my friends and I filmed was a horror movie (where we did all of our own highly dangerous stunts). We were drug behind cars, lept out of bar hay lofts, wielded high-powered chainsaws and even lit one of our friends on fire with pants soaked in hairspray. Our friends and families fellnon their asses loving the shit out of or crude little movie. I am sure they shuddered at the danger that was involved, but they encouraged the creativity as well. I kept making these kinds of videos into my college years, where I was always fortunate to have a video camera in my possession. My buddies and I would sit around smoking pot and drinking beer watching my catalog of home movies....with side splitting laughter. And I look back on those times now, and a bright smile comes to my face. That's who I was, and I was so proud of myself. And day I see a preview commercial for the premiere of MTV's Jackass. The very first thing I did was call my mom. I was yelling to her that "someone finally did it...they finally became famous doing the same shit I was doing". I remember watching the 1st episode, and just about dying from laughter. I loved those guys from the very start. When their show came on, the world stopped, the weed came out and good times were had. They've had a great run...'Jackass: Number Two' being my personal favorite out of all the shows/movies. They've brought more laughter to my life than any other comic medium I've experienced...and I grew up with Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, George Carlin, Dennis Leary and many others. When I got to work and turned on my PC to discover that Dunn died in a car crash, I was sad. TMZ immediately released twitter pic of him drinking prior to the crash, and I just knew in my gut that he had to have been drunk when he climbed behind the wheel. Sure enough it was all true...he was trashed, driving insanely fast and had someone with him who also died in the crash. It wasn't a wild stunt for a show or movie that killed wasn't a drug overdose in a hotel that ended his life too wasn't a gun that he used to blow his brains was something so ignorant and avoidable that cut his life short while taking another's as well. I lived in Austin Texas for seven years, and there's been more times than I care to think about that I drove home from 6th Street when I had no business being behind the wheel. I'm not proud of those times, in fact, I thank the good lord that I made it thru unscathed. I became a Dad back in October, and as much as I loved Jackass and all the crazy videos I made...I find myself doubting whether I'll let my son watch them any time soon. I couldn't image the pain and guilt I'd endure if he'd hurt or kill himself emulating something I did for a crude home video laugh. The Jackass guys are probably feeling that guilt right now...prolly eat up with anger at themselves for not counseling Dunn about reckless driving and driving under the influence. I hope they can get over the pain and continue making films. And I hope many a lesson has been learned from this tragedy that resulted from Driving Drunk. Deep down...I think it was an eye-opener for many.... If you care to see a small collection of my really poorly made home videos, you can YouTube search for my page PypeBombPictures. From reading most of the comments here, I'd bet most of you wouldn't care for them. To conclude my thoughts here, I want to say that I think AICN made a very poor choice in posting Bobo's article. It was insulting and, after sleeping on it, really lowered my opinion of the people who run this site. Harry, if you read this...dude I used to chat up movies and bought a couple of posters from you at the Austin City-Wide Garage Sale back in the day. I thought you we be above this....but you sir, are a JACKASS [insert guitar sound here] ~drrrrrrrr nrrrrrrrr brrrrrrrrrr nrrrrrrrr nrrrrrrrrrr

    Fuck Dunn (and his friend in the car)

    by flatulence

    Luckily (and only by luck) he did not kill anyone else (other than his equally stupid friend) with his selfish, drunken, speeding driving. All the jackasses can do all the jackassery they want - on a closed road away from the public. I only wish that Dunn was unhurt so he'd have to live with the knowledge that his fucking stupidity killed his friend and could have killed many others. Fuck him, he can rot - and serve as a lesson to other stupid fucks like him.

    by smackfu

    Maybe our reaction to his 'obit' will be a bit more clear if someday The Situation dies in a car accident and AICN puts up an obit for him, after weeks of drooling retards asking 'where's the Situation's obit?!!'. Then you'll realize how annoying it is to listen to people fawn over a reality show douchebag who was only famous for being a douchebag, especially one that took someone else out with him. This obit really hit the nail on the head though, in that Dunn really was just a bare step up from any random tool on Youtube who tried to do a backflip off his roof into a kiddie pool. The only thing that separates him from 'skateboarder takes guardrail to the nuts' is he had the fortune to be dragging on the coattails of Johnny Knoxville.

    The kids still have plenty of Jackasses left to follow. And after reflecting upon Ryan's death, rather than toning down their reckless lifestyles the Jackasses will as a tribute to Ryan, defiantly choose to step it up a notch and take increasingly retarded chances to taunt death in the face. But the grim reaper don't like to be mocked. He wields a sharp scythe.

    The real AICN Ryan Dunn obit

    by the dolphins are in the jacuzzi

    I already posted this yesterday, but it seemed far more appropriate here. Harry here. You know, Yoko and I were talking the other day about what a jackass I am, and...I kid you not...the very next day. Ryan Dunn died. Seriously. Makes you think doesn't it. I mean, when I was a kid, my dad would always buy me matchbox cars, and of course, like any kid. I would shove them up my ass. But I never thought about putting them in a condom first. And then going. To the doctor. It was that kind of brilliants that made me love Ryan Dunn like Clint Eastwood covered in honey. And so now. As I drink this beer and remember. Ryan Dunn. It just makes the unbelievable pain a little bit more bareable. One day, maybe he'll get a little bit of the recognition he deserves. For bringing such joy into our lives. Until then, jackasses of the world. He will be missed. Like Frankenberry cereal. R.I.P. Frankenberry. R.I.P. Ryan Dunn. May they both rest in peace. P.s. I just know he would have loved seeing the new Captain America movie. Giggle. But what do you think?

    by Ironhelix

    HOWEVER: the people shitting on him for getting his ass killed while doing something stupid need to get some perspective. As has been pointed out above, there are many famous celebrities who have offed themselves due to their own stupidity. Sure, this guy was only on the slightest fringe of the margin of "celebrity", but I don't really feel any different about any other supposedly "gifted artist". They are all a bunch of people who are lucky enough to get paid millions to stand in front of a camera and play dress-up and pretend. They're not curing cancer, so I'll enjoy their movies until such time that they decide to check out, and then I'll point and laugh at the spectacle and shame they bring on themselves.

    Death by overdose...

    by Mudflapper a lot different that death by getting wasted. climbing into a sports car, hitting 140mph, killing yourself and a passenger and, luckily, not killing a busload of special-needs kids in the process.

  • July 3, 2011, 12:36 a.m. CST

    proevad, bullshit

    by Jaka

    I would have said exactly the same thing. The guy was an ass for drinking and driving. And while its tragic that he killed somebody else, that guy could easily have said, "no, I'm not getting in your car because you've been drinking all night". The bus load of kids is hypothetical, but my opinion would not have changed from the following: he lived his life doing dangerous, crazy stunts, but drinking and driving killed him (and whoever else). Its not a joke, don't drink and drive. <p> All this holier than thou high horse preaching bullshit from the people in this talkback is a joke. How many of them have driven after drinking? How many of them have never done anything stupid that they regret in their lives, be it huge or miniscule? They guy is dead, he died in a stupid way. Nobody looks cool because they figured out a way to talk shit about him now that he's dead.

Hopefully, when you drop acid, the school bus is empty. That way there's one less, I meant "Green" Trash walking around. But..if not, there's always your Hero Ryan "Well" Dunn to further serve as a lesson to the disillusioned generation of retards. Go and build a shrine for your Boy and should you have no idea of what items you may need, (via lack of creativity in that pedestrian brain of yours.) there's always this: "Attention Walmart shoppers, we have a fire sale on matchbox cars, skateboards, knit caps and a 12 pack of Coors beer"!!

  • Ledger relied on scripts due to his inability to sleep and it's been speculation that he had a hard time adjusting to his role as the Joker(playing a homicidal criminal was a bit too much for him I take it.) and then there's the baby mama drama that further complicated his stressful situation if you will. Now, he fuckedup up royally becuase he had a more promising career, still young and most important, his daughter is without a Father. Now the difference is....... Heath did NOT get behind the wheel while being intoxicated. (DWI KILLS! especially the innocent.) Now imagine if Ryan's vehicle had collided with other motorists what would have been the outcome? HMMMM Do I personally take some sort of satisfaction or joy from this guy's death? No, as his life never impacted mine one way or another.

    by smackfu

    Remind me, did Sylvester Stallone spend his life getting talked into doing youtube stunts by the alpha males of his peer group? Or did he write, direct, and star in an oscar winning movie, and headline several action franchises? Because I always get Sylvester Stallone and Ryan Dunn confused... I'll bite though, if you can find some examples of a hollywood star who died in a drunk driving accident, which killed another person, and who wasn't criticized for it? There are two things no one gets a pass for, especially when it comes to internet comment threads, and that dying by suicide, or drunk driving. The comment threads are always the same, 'good riddance, fuck you.'

  • Because in prisons, the inmates aren't allowed to wear belts, so their pants hang low. Then when they get out and go back into the community, they continue to not wear belts, and the people in those communities where ex-convicts tend to live, look up to them, and they emulate them. So youth in those ghettos started wearing their pants the same way. The white kids in the suburbs who want to seem hard instead of as effeminate boys who listen to Coldplay will then emulate that style, too. Because in America, ex-convicts are looked up to. <p> Vern, by the way, I apologize for my initial response to you. It was a bit harsh. I was drunk that was Canada Day. I don't necessarily disagree with the things I said, but with the way that I said them. Also, I shouldn't have mentioned your book. I've never read it but I'm sure it's a good read because you're a good writer. <p> Having said that, I've always felt it was irresponsible of you to use that persona, one of an ex-convict or outlaw, and profit from it. You have groupies, Vern. A lot of your followers look up to you because of this persona you've crafted for yourself - it sells. A pasty white guy from the Mid-West will feel more comfortable looking up to someone like you than someone like 50 Cent. But if you were a middle-aged computer programmer named Vern who obsessed over action stars and action films, and were pictured as an obese man with glasses and a wouldn't have as many followers. And you know this, Vern. You're a smart guy, too. <p> When I was living in New York, I used to work with emotionally disturbed teens living in bad neighborhoods. Do you know who they looked up to? Gangbangers, drug dealers, ex-convicts, rappers, and MTV personalities. I had one black kid who idolized the cast of Jersey Shore and wanted to be like Paulie D. It's not easy convincing kids like this that it's not lame to study and get an education and that it's not cool to commit crimes and become an ex-convict. They think that they can profit more from crimes and from the reputation it will give them afterwards...and with the attitudes that exist in's tough convincing them that they're wrong. Out of all the kids I worked with, I think I got through to 2 of them. Possibly 3. <p> The problem stems more from the overwhelming attitudes that exist in America. How exactly do you change those? I've been in the trenches trying to reach youth that are affected by it, and it's tough. You can't convince those at the top who are selling those attitudes and values to America because they are the ones who profit from it. So all you can do is voice your opinion and exercise your free speech. The problem is, you will likely get shouted down by those who don't like to hear anyone speak ill of the status quo. <p> If you speak out when the issues are the most relevant, you'll hear cries of "Too Soon!!!" It's like during the start of the Iraq war, anyone who questioned it was called a traitor or a terrorist sympathizer and was told to go choke on their Freedom Fries because they were supposedly disrespecting the thousands of lives that were lost in 9/11. So when can you honestly discuss these things? Now? The Iraq war is old now....America has moved on to newer and fresher wars. <p> America has a very short term memory. That's why these things need to be discussed when they are relevant, because a month from now, no one will remember Ryan Dunn, and everyone will be talking about Paris Hilton's new piercings, Lindsay Lohan's new tattoos, or the antics of Charlie Sheen. If your problem isn't so much the timing of what I said, but the fact that AICN posted it, Vern, because you were once a writer here for 10 years, and you feel that this embarrasses you and affects your reputation so you have to comment....that is why I felt the need to comment on your reputation and what it stands for. That's why I feel it's related. <p> And if for speaking my mind....I'm a scumbag, a cunt, excrement on a cracker...and all the other colorful terms the kids in America are using these days....I can live with it. It's okay, though...I'm used to being called names. And since I no longer live in America....I guess these issues are not my problem anymore... <p> Happy 4th of July, folks!!!!

    Just wondering if you are aware of the epic level of irony involved in you ranting about youths of today not having good role models in the same thread where you posted a heartfelt obituary for one of the Jackass guys. If only our youths, afflicted by low-riding pants their hippity hoppity music took the example of these fine Jackass gentlemen to heart, and devoted their time to instead getting piss loaded and performing Darwinistic experiments on how closely they can dance on the precipice of death. We are talking national emergency levels of irony. Kevin Costner is going to have to develop a new polymer just to absorb the excess irony to keep it from spilling into the Gulf of Mexico.

    Very good to see Vern pop in

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    a real fucking writer. Notice how the site has no class anymore? We used to have things like the CHAOS/Demon Dave TB, now we have Aint It Cool making fun of the dead.

  • For those of you old schoolers, you'll know what I'm about to talk about. For you youngin''s an AICN history lesson for ya: <p> In Moriarty's final year here at AICN between 2007 and 2008, he very publicly fought with Massawyrm in the talkbacks. For those of us who witnessed it, it was bizarre. Part of it stems back from a showing of The Poughkeepsie Tapes at BNAT which Moriarty brought there and introduced. The problem is, Moriarty introduced the film as if it were a documentary in an attempt to dupe the audience into believing it was real (Blair Witch style) but it wasn't...and Massawyrm, in his review of the film, talked about how that affected his enjoyment of it. What followed was Moriarty claiming Massa's review was a personal attack. You can read the talkback here (it's a good read) : <p> <p> Now....Vern is a very good friend of Moriarty. Mori helped Vern get the gig at AICN, helped him get noticed, and I believe he helped Vern get the foreword for his book from Guillermo Del Toro. So Vern is extremely loyal to Mori. So what happened was, Vern started calling Massawyrm out in his talkbacks, too, and criticizing his reviews. 3 years later, he's still mentioning Massa's Sex in the City review, like he did above, calling it a low point for AICN. You can read that talkback here: <p> <p> As for me...I'm just a talkbacker. But during the course of my time here, I submitted about 10 articles to Moriarty which he posted here...but he eventually banned me in a Script Girl talkback. I, like some others, was not a fan of Script Girl. Personally, I would call Script Girl the low point for AICN....that's where Vern and I differ. As a loyal fan of AICN, I became a shit disturber in the Script Girl talkbacks. Moriarty banned me without warning because he thought one of my insults was too vulgar. <p> I returned under different names to try to discuss this, because I figured I at least deserved a warning....and Vern came to Moriarty's defense. Vern and I had a lengthy back and forth...I wouldn't call it an argument...but he expressed his loyalty towards Moriarty...that's how I know all that Moriarty has done for him. And so Vern was showing his gratitude to Mori by having Mori's back in his beef with me. That talkback does not exist because my new names were instantly banned and all comments deleted. <p> That's why....when Vern jumps in here and starts using words like scumbag...mentioning Massawyrm's Sex in the City article...asking me who printed this article for me (because he wants to know if it was Massa)....he's digging up old shit. This is kids on a playground shit. There's a context here. That's why in my first response to Vern, I had fun with it and responded in that context....and then Bad MrWonka spilled his white wine all over his PJ's and his cat while witnessing my "ad hominem" attacks, LOL.... <p> I have no beef with Vern....but I still don't like Moriarty. So for those of you who care...this talkback has a context.

    lostboytexass, you remind me of one of my old highschool classmates

    by Surfaces_are_supposed_to_be_FLAT

    who later on in life told me he was gay. And what's more, who shared intimate details of his earliest gay experiences with me, such as having his first orgasm into the mouth of a much younger boy. Was Ryan Dunn the older boy to your young virgin mouth? Was it the 'dry mouth' of despair at losing this person in your life, the memories of the taste of Ryan's seed on your tongue, or perhaps the fact that you can text him all you want but he won't ever reply to you again.. that led to your rampant "where is my Ryan's obit?" spamming campaign? Or was it just that you a fucking loser with seriously weird taste in role-models? You needn't reply lostboytexass, I know it is both.

    it’s like the Discovery Channel for retards...Yep.

    by ZodNotGod

    And anyone who gets a kick out of watching said channel deserves any and every kind of misery. Seriously, the guy was a drunken loser, a murdering drunken loser. Like all losers, he paid the price. Man, I hate boozers, such a waste of skin.

    I don't even go to my web site. Why should anyone else? I created that blog during the the time of the Great Purging as a protest to d.vader and my own bannings by that thin-skinned pussy, Mr. Beaks. It was never intended to be an alternative to AICN. Frankly, I'm too busy with my government subsidized world wide mercenary ventures to maintain any kind of daily blog. And just because you don't have a sense of humor, don't fault those who do and find The Choppah funny. Really, you're going to criticize another person's sense of humor? Talk about an exercise in futility. And Darth_Kong is right. Harry should post some of my reviews. Can't be any worse than the garbage Nerdling or Devin Faraci's spew.

    High/funny/low points of AICN

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    Low:<P> -Scriptgirl<P> -random bannings that no one will take responsibility for<P> -that funny paid-ad teen novel thing (was it called Gone?)<P> -people not being informed of the theft of personal info<P> -the grammar. Highs:<P> -CHAOS talkback<p> -that horse fucking talkback<P> -the Bruce Willis talkback where Moriarty got angry and swore blind that it wasn't Willis posting there, when it most certainly was<P> -the look on that talkbacker's face in the picture-in-picture screengrab he posted when he realized who he was chatting with. -the grammar.

    And Vern is right about bobo's obit


    It's indicative of the overall decline in standards at AICN.

    Choppah's Obit for Ryan Dunn:


    Ryan Dunn died like he lived: like a Jackass! Rest In Pieces, you Jackass!

    Christina Applegate laughed while River Phoenix choked on his own

    by Professor_Monster

    One of the other young Holllywooders reported that when Phoenix went into his convulsions Applegate rushed over to her friends and did an impression of him laying on the ground, shaking and puking. This was talked about on A Current Affair but quickly dropped not long after he died - probably Applegates PR people helping her out.

    not true

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    she used to recreate the convulsions for drug awareness programs, at least one that I know of.
