The Power House "May the Light shine on you, and Creator shelter you" (Wheel of time) these are the best words i can say.
The Power House "May the Light shine on you, and Creator shelter you" (Wheel of time) these are the best words i can say.
It's not the best place and time to talk about those things, but I got an idea (a pretty good one I think)
ILF should try to contact his family and buy all his Fleshlights.
They could take the money to finance a part of his burial and things like that. Those things are not very cheap and a guy that died with 24 deserves the BEST possible.
And, I bet he would be so damn proud that the company he obviously loved very much, would take care about this.
And it would be secured that his stuff will get in good hands. I think that would be the most important for him.
This should not be a big deal for ILF!
He did so damn much for the company without being an official part of it.
What you think about that?
Sad News. RIP ThePowerHouse, you'll be long remembered.
Damn it's our loss (incl. family, friends, and acquaintances) if you ever had the chance to see the other side then you know that he is indeed in a better place with knowledge of all his experiences and lessons learned from this life. Now I'm wish I did a recursive backup of his review site.
You're right lasthunter, I wish we had a recursive backup of his great site. His reviews far out-passed those of the fleshking.
Far too young to be taken from this world. RIP.
OMG how awful to read this
I feel bad now...to die so young
lowers my thoughts to his family and friends
Rest in peace ThePowerHouse
You will be missed
I was thinking about his site and those forums today. This is a really bad surprise. I will miss him somehow, his work was fantastic and to be honest, I rarely appreciate other people's work. I guess this is the reason I need to post this. If I stop a moment thinking that's quite odd but I guess we just shared a common interest, that's for sure. He really deserved better than this!
Sad to read this news, like so many others here I chose some of my sleeves based on his reviews. RIP my friend
+1 for a ThePowerHouse texture
This maybe inappropriate, but I thought I might try to cheer everyone up -
When his family come to clear up his house/apartment/room how will they react to finding his collection of Fleshlights?
LOL - He was a great guy, and a horny bastard like the rest of us.
I've mostly been a lurker on this forum, even before joining it. Aside from my very first FJ purchase, TPH influenced almost all of my purchases since then. He never failed to come across as smart, a super nice guy, here and especially on Xtube, and of course, a horny bastard. I didn't know him IRL, but I am very saddened by his death.
For a while, I've thought he should be an honorary Fleshjack Boy. Here's another vote for a TPH texture (intense, the way he liked his fleshies).
Terrible news to read, TPH seemed like a great guy and did good work. RIP, mate!
Oh no! Just saw this post.. this is terrible news! I didn't realize he was only 24... He was one of, if not the most respected member of these forums.
I agree that he should have a texture or product named after his user name here.
Ave atque vale; requiescat in pace, my friend, where ever you are...
Logged in to the forum and got surprised by this! It is shocking to read about the death of a fellow forum member, especially one who was that young.
RIP PowerHouse, you will be missed.
Rest in peace, TPH.
A great loss to the community. He was a wealth of information to frequent and infrequent flyers. I do recall reading his blog a long while ago in which he talked about his parents being aware of his hobbies, including his huge collection of ILF products. In a matter of speaking he helped all the hatchlings learn how to fly. I would not be opposed to buying a texture in his honor with proceeds going to his family or something of that sort.
rest in peace
he was always most helpful, previous time (when his site was down) i told him that i thought he got angry at ILF for discountinuing textures and just left but he replied he would never leave the community... to think that much worse happened now
RIP ThePowerHouse, You will be missed
RIP PowerHouse. You were by far the most helpful person in the entire fleshlight community. Thank you for your time and effort into your review website which is now unfortuneatly shut down. You were the man.
This is very sad news. I didn't know ThePowerHouse well on here, but I certainly appreciated his insights and I often went to his site to read his detailed reviews.
I am also in favor of naming a new, special Fleshlight and Fleshjack texture after him. I think it would be a great idea, especially as his name--PowerHouse--works so well already.
Such sad and shocking news. TPH's endless kindness, whimiscal humor and love of sexual exploration will not be forgotten by me. I'm still blown away by the picture of his collection! RIP TPH. We lost you too young, buddy.
First post - I signed up to post my respects.
I came about this news after wondering why TPH review site was down... Like some I wondered if he had taken down his site in protest to the new changes, but the news is much worse. I certainly hope the two aren't related in any way.
Ironically, I had discussed with a friend that ILF should have made a PH sleeve a while back. Seems fitting now... Perhaps they could re-release his highest intensity rated sleeve, which was the discontinued cyclone (I think?)... A special re-release PH version would be great.
It's rare to find people that committed to helping out others on forums.
I think it would be great if ILF were to do a limited run of ThePowerHouse favourite FJ textures with lady orifices, I think he has already said on the boards that his favourites were Bliss & Paradise.
That might be the only way that some of us would ever get to sample those textures.
That is tragic for someone so young to have their life cut short. TPH was a unique contributor to the forum with the work he did and most of us benefited from his advice or reviews at some point.
How's everything going up there buddy? I may not have had to had the chance to get to know you on a personal level but i had and will always have an enormous amount of respect for you and your contributions to the people here. I don't know if you ever fully realized how much love and respect the people have for you and we will never forget you. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family and i hope you are in a peaceful place now. These forums will never be the same without you.
Rest in peace my friend, I will never forget you!
I would have never tried his top rated Bliss and Paradise sleeves if it weren't for him. They became my favorites and are practically the only sleeves I use now. R.I.P.
OMG! I'dont know what to say! That is so sad. I wish good luck to his family and friends. R.I.P.
Only the Good die young!
Much respect. He will be missed.
Extremely sad news. Your advice and overwhelming knowledge will be missed. RIP buddy!

I already miss him. I cannot add much to the kind words that have been written already. I hope that his tremendous work will be remembered a long time. It's not too long ago that I visited his site and I can't believe that it should have been the last time in my life. I can only thank him for what he did and how he did it.
I can't believe it - I read all of his reviews before buying my first one. Rest in peace and condolences to his family and friends.
Somehow I totally missed the news about this until a few days ago. I tend to speed-read postings of interest, and don't always look at every contributor's name until something in a post jumps out at me and I backtrack. I slowly noticed the trend of all the jaguar avatars out of the corner of my eye which I'd originally thought was just him or someone else with their own spinoff posting prolifically, but discovered were tributes instead.
This is really sad news - that's way, way to young to go. Unless you've lived in a warzone or gone through something similarly traumatic and life-altering at a young age, any of us here who have lived well past 24 can tell you no matter how much of a man you think you are, you're still a lot more of a kid than you think. We can only hope it was something peaceful, or happened so quickly he didn't suffer; my concern considering his orientation and location was if he got into some kind of a Matthew Shepard situation, or was facing undue pressure from family/friends/neighbors/colleagues.
Anyway, in reply to secretsexpoet, that's the beauty of web crawlers like Google and the Internet Archive - at times like these, you can sometimes dig up someone's digital legacy at least in parts, if not fully....seems the free-site predecessor to his full-on one from a couple of years ago is still out there on Webs.com, and the Wayback Machine also has several pages from a few crawls from last year (June - October 2012.....perhaps someone with more time and computer skills could re-assemble the content here into a more readable form into a revival of the original site):
I hate to speculate, but the fact that his current site disappeared is rather worrisome. Unless he kept his login info out somewhere that someone could see it after the fact and shut it down, he seemed rightfully proud of his detailed, well-written, and surprisingly objectively-tested work, and if he was sick or knew he wasn't going to be around much longer, it's something I would've seen him leaving behind as a worthy public postscript.
Ironically, I just heard something on the radio last week that seems to suggest if his family took it down without his permission, they could have been violating a number of site policies, and I've heard in some cases and localities possibly even breaks laws:

A longer radio discussion on the topic from what appears to be the same day and likely inspired by the interview above is here:

I'm very sorry to hear this news. I've mostly been lurking these forums until lately but I really liked his reviews and he got me interested in wanting to buy various sleeves and textures. I always liked reading his posts and reviews and information he would give. I share in the sentiment of having a special "TPH" texture.
OMFG !!! I was on Thailand for about one year and I was not able to use internet. Now when I am back I came here right now and....
rest in peace ThePoweHouse. Without him this forum will never be the same.
When no one else had a review for the cougar, TPH stepped up. His reviews were thorough. It's a shame, he was so young too. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
This is a real bummer to hear. Rest in peace, ThePowerHouse. You will be missed.
Rest In Peace, ThePowerHouse, very sad to hear ;(
R.I.P. ThePowerHouse. Your extravagant efforts in the forum community will never go unnoticed! I wholeheartedly LOVED your reviews! They are the best because you were upfront and honest about every texture. Also, they were unbiased which helped me decide which texture i wanted. Making a texture in his honor is an excellent idea and we should voice our ideas on what we want the texture to be like and of course name it "ThePowerHouse". You will be forever missed by us FLight members! My prayers go out to his family and friends.
R.I.P TPJ sad to hear. I have been out of the forum a while, sad to hear someone loose their life at 24.
Thought that this thread is just joke when reading forum threads.
We miss You. May the heaven be your home TPH, and lovely fleshlights blowing your mind in eternal vortex endlessly R.I.P.!
Rest in peace Powerhouse. We will miss you. Thank you for your expertise and helping me decide when I bought my first fleshlight.
TPH, you were my best friend from the net.
I have no peace, because I do not know what happened. Why? You were only 24 years old.
Does anyone know what happened?
Rest in peace my friend.
You will remain forever in my heart.
Happy 25th Birthday, my friend, TPH ! You are sadly missed !
I haven't been around in a while and this is depressing. I was looking around for some of the people I remember to see if they still post and TPH was definitely one of them. Sad to hear that he passed.
