“BURNING dAN brightly embodied that bold beastly bliss sometimes referred to as ‘the creative spirit.’ He was my chief collaborator on the foundational incarnations of hitRECord.org over the years and continues to inspire us ever the more,” Gordon-Levitt wrote. “He would absolutely positively insist that we not let this bad news deter us on our collective mission. That said, I might not feel up to it for a little while.”
Gordon-Levitt added, "Let's celebrate him, he's [expletive] awesome."
