I was absolutely blown away when I read for the first time tonight that Ninjalicious had passed away. Infiltration fundamentally changed the way I perceived the world around me when I first discovered the website some five years ago. His insightful writing and fabulous sense of humor will be missed by explorers worldwide.

I know I'm late in expressing my sadness, but, like so many of you said in the posts I've read, Ninjalicious opened the door (manhole cover?) to the world of urban exploration for many of us indeed. For that he has my eternal respect.

I owe some of the best hours of my life to ninjalicious, so thanks. Keep infiltrating, wherever you are, and we'll keep it up here on earth. RIP

Since Ninjalicious is no longer with us (& is probably now exploring the realms of heaven) and the Infiltration zine is no longer in production, WHERE can we submit photos & other stuff from our individual exploits?!

ANYone? Anyone? Anyone?

Any OTHER publications that would take in my photos & blueprints & commentary?

I first came across Ninj through his zine, and always admired his creativity and the amount of work he put into creating a diy publication that would represent what he wanted to say about exploration. I think he is a perfect inspiration to start doing your own thing instead of looking for someone else to create it for you.

I don't think I'd be doing what I am doing today if I had never come across Infiltration. I'm sorry I never got to meet Ninj, but my life is all the better for having had the chance to read his stuff and be inspired by his outlook on life.

I've had quite a few friends pass away. Today I was listening to Def Leppard's "Pyromaniac" and the lyrics "it's better to burn out then fade away" struck me.

In a sense, ol Ninj lucked out by kicking the bucket while everyone still remembered him versus what I'll probably do, which is die in a nursing home, a babbling old coot (although that's not much different than now for me).

Go out in a blaze of glory as they say.

Not to diminish the loss felt by his family. It's a tough loss as always.
I'll shut my piehole now.

Man... it's 1:00 PM on December 31. What a friggin' way to end a year.

You know, Ninj and Liz lived only a few short blocks from me, in the same neighbourhood. I'd been a member of the site for about 6 months (hooked by the prose, the pics, and the process!) when Ninj posted a story about a hole in the street that he wanted to investigate, so... Reading it, I realized -- holy shit! This dude lives right near me! It was like finding out Keith Richards was staying on the floor above while in TO practicing!

I'm really, really sorry to hear about Ninj's passing. No, I never met him, but yeah, I feel like I knew him, through reading about his escapades, his adventures, and having that remarkable energy and enthusiasm just pump through the screen while devouring the site.

One thing I never figured out, Ninj: Why'd you need that flashlight? You always shone the brightest! Peace now, man.

Mm, there was a good book review/memorial to him in the (Toronto) Globe and Mail Books section on the December 31 edition, too. Sounds like a helluva guy I didn't take the opportunity to meet.

So who is in charge of the infiltration website??

I was told to post here at the site, but don't know how.

Plus, but what address do I write to NOW? I used to submit to Ninjalicious all the time (by mail) & he would post them in his zine or on the website.

I didn't know him, but I read a couple articles in the "Infiltration" magazine postings, and he made me laugh; what a sense of humour! And great writing skills might I add. I respect all the work he as put into Urban Exploration, and I feel saddened by the loss to all those who knew and loved him. I'm sure if it wasn't for him, this Art wouldn't be as prominent as it is now.


My regards,

I didn't know him, but I came across the Infiltration website and the articles while back, and they are what got me interested in UEing. RIP Ninjalicious.

Wow.. Infiltration.org got me motivated and helped me realize other people liked this stuff too. "My First Eight Drains" was the first thing I read on Infiltration, by Ninj of course. I've never met him, never talked to him, just read everything on Infiltration, but I still feel like he was somebody I knew. He was awesome and I'll miss him too. *hug* to the family.

Everything that can be said, has been said.

He helped open the world to many, and gave definition and order to something that many of us had done for years, untethered.

I never knew him. I am honoured to even have the privilege to post a farewell to him.

Goodbye, Ninjalicious. You are loved. You are not forgotten.

Late, as usual, to make a necessary remark:

I can say that, along with Action Squad, this site was one of the first that caught my eye when I first began to find out that there was a whole world of people out there that did what I did, and I can say that through this site I've seen many a great photo and interacted with and met personally many a great person that I would ahve not been able to do, had this site not been around. Obviously, Ninjalicious, Jeff Chapman, deserves much of the credit for helping make all of that possible.

I never got to meet Jeff; I'd told him once we should do some exploring together next time he came around to Chicago. Sadly, that opportunity won't ever see realization.

I could have, nay should have, commented here earlier; but other things, personal dilemmas and family issues of my own can and have side-tracked me. That is no excuse, of course, and I do not mean it to be.

I've been roaming around this board for over three years now. I can say with certainty that Ninjalicious was the first mod to reprimand me on here, when I was but a wee pup around here, and that stung me a bit, like letting down someone. But it was fine after that, and I'm glad to say we didn't end as enemies. I only regret not being able to get the chance to become friends.

So, from Daryl, or D-Low as I'm better known:

Rest well and in peace, Ninjalicious. You certainly deserve to.
