Randy was an early pioneer of sprite movies, inspiring many who have made their own sprite movies over the past 12 years. Classics include:
Like MK? Then you'll enjoy these 4 -alaties not seen in the game!
Check out Randy's Movies page for more.
Beyond his sprite movies, Randy was a great guy and supportive member of the NG community. He'll be greatly missed.
Randy's family is accepting donations for his 18 month old daughter. If you can, please Paypal some money to RielleSolemTrustFund@Yahoo.com and it will go into a fund to pay for her education.
After the passing of Ben Spurgin in 2009, we talked about setting up a page to document NG regulars who are no longer with us. I finally set up this In Memoriam page in the Wiki. Let me know if you have suggestions / additions. I'd like to add pictures so we'll probably do that.
This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.
He suddenly died at 36? Wow. RIP Randy Solem.
He will be greatly missed I think I've reviewed just about every single one of his submissions. The true master of sprites, as he'll forever be remembered by me as. I'm still curious as to how he passed away but nonetheless, may he rest in peace and be remembered by his friends and family.
Is this for real? Because a lot of fake death announcements are posted on NG.
Anyway, that's a huge bummer. Randy's movies are what introduced me to Newgrounds, as well as sparked my interest in classic console games (I live in a place where no one's heard of Zelda). RIP.
Damn, that news really blows. There was some inspiration for my flashes from a few years back from old sprite movie makers such as him.
Sorry to hear that. Rest in peace Randy.
Is there any information on what happened? Maybe I'm missing something, but there don't seem to be any details anywhere other than the fact that it was sudden.
was he the owner of VGDC??
I used to visit that site everyday as a kid.
RIP , Thank you for making such amazing movies.
Music is my passion , not my business.

This one has been posted by Tom himself on a news post so this is definitely real.

This is a great page to have, Tom. It's great to see something like this, but hopefully we won't have to add names to it any time soon. RIP Randy!
I was just thinking of him earlier today. I was wondering what he was up to.
This sucks. His movies were awesome.
Rest in peace, man.
This was the worst news I've heard in the 9 years I've been with this site.
I'll be missing that guy :(
I have a penis
Rest in Peace, Randy. It's a shame that you never got to have that big comeback on the flash portal.
LONG LIVE VGDC
Oh bugger. I remember seeing his cartoons quite a lot when I was a kid.
Sorry to hear that :<
A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.
Very sad to hear that. 2.5 million views on one of his submissions, he must've inspired many people.
