  1. Eminem is sounding increasingly like a muppet to me.

  4. How could that model have killed himself. Everyone knows if you have looks and a hot bod you never need anything else.

  5. The Ambrose video was beautifully haunting.

  6. Damn, I wish I looked like him, kind of hard to feel sorry for someone that would commit suicide.

  7. Ambrose was only 24 years old, had the body every man would kill to have, a bank account that would keep anyone happy for awhile and all the glamorous world travel you could ever hope for. His job was running around and playing for god sakes, not some dreary monday to friday paper-pushing bullshit but a job that people would KILL to be able to have. How does a person who has all that find ANYTHING worth hanging yourself over? What are we supposed to learn from this, that nothing is ever good enough, that you can always find a reason to kill yourself no matter how blessed you are? So sad.

  8. Are you crying, john? I don't know why people believe that they're entitled to happiness, and moreso, that that's the purpose of living or being successful. These kinds of expectations do leave some (most) unfulfilled.

  9. I don't know why people today still don't understand depression. Sometimes you can have everything you want, and you still don't feel right. You can't shake it off, you can't snap out of it. If you don't get the right kind of help in time, you go over the edge. It can be something like a chemical imbalance in the brain, it can be something else. It doesn't make sense to those that have not experienced it, and consider yourselves lucky if you have not. But don't look at someone's life from the outside and think that you know what is going on inside.

  10. John- Depression for the most part is caused by a low level of neurotransmitters such as Seritonin or Norepinephrine. With low levels of these chemicals, one's outlook on life can be very bleak. It's not what you have, it's what you don't have or have in low levels that makes the difference. Don't be so shallow.

  11. Depression can be caused by genetic factors underlying chemical factors, or can be environmental. So? It's manageable, but it's not an excuse. And who's to say that depression was even a factor here? Is there any privileged information that would rule out substance abuse?

  12. No video on the Rielle Hunter/Oprah interview?

  13. gay men kill themselves every day ....
    maybe he felt like a piece of meat

    Posted by: telly | Apr 29, 2010 9:00:43 PM

  14. so now a tribute is showing a dead person running around wet undies, unable to tie his pants, and catching his junk in his crotch --- oh I see he really was just a piece of pretty meat

    no wonder he killed himself

  15. @Tank: I'm just curious: where do you find the most fulfillment? And do you not desire happiness? Aren't the two inherently linked?

  16. A young cute man kills himself and we're all supposed to stop and bow our heads and have a moment of silence? Nah I don't think so. Who is he anyway and why should we care? Oh because life is precious? LOL tell that to the patriotic soldiers killing young Arab men every day. I dare ya.

  17. It's really getting old to read people who critique Andy for posts on models or athletes (with or without a gay angle), yet have no complaints for other revealing photos because the other guys might be more their type.

    I suppose the whiners are upset that attention is being given to someone who was attractive and young, or maybe just not their type? Would you feel more sympathy if you had more in common with the guy? Do you hate all attractive people, living or dead? I suppose you've never looked at porn of any type, much less ads, and found someone attractive?

    It's heartless to berate someone who hanged himself. Whatever the cause (depression, substance abuse, etc.), he clearly was in a dismal mental state---and he was a human being. As others have mentioned, some people don't just have dark days, they have black periods they can't control and can't see their way through. Learn a bit of empathy.

    Oh and Sargon? Are we supposed to be feeling sorry for the dead Arabs or the dead US soldiers? Because both are caught in a clusterfuck far beyond their control. Your comment is pointless. LOL yourself.

  18. Well said, Paul. Well said.
