He will be missed greatly, blesshis family, he was a great contributor and loved the sprite movies in the older days .
Wow what the fuck, Stamper. I was reading the thread on where his cousin talked about how he died, and Stamper literally poked fun at him and two other members dying. What in the flying fuck is wrong with Stamper? Anyway, I used to watch his cartoons all the time and I'll miss him.

Dead on. I hated his work, but it truly is sad to see a man of the community go. Like him or not, he is a part of Newground's history and culture.
I just come back from a hiatus and This is the worse news that I heard in about 5-6 years.Randy was a beast, his site from way back was the reason I actually found Newgrounds.'m crushed that one of my idols has passed.well, I'll see you on the other side, Randy. My condolences to his family. We all have lost a great man. Steve
I remember the late '90s so well... so vividly. I remember when the original Portal was introduced. I remember when Video Game Director's Cuts was in its infancy and how it would eventually evolve. I had even submitted website graphics to Randy's evolution. Oh, do I remember it so... (it was a scene from The Revenge of Shinobi that I used to make a VGDC website title banner)
I was merely 13-years-old when I first experienced the wonder of Randy's work. Sure, it was simplistic and goofy, yet being the avid gamer myself it wasn't difficult for me to decipher his humor. He and Rob Foor of Razoric often distracted me from the hellish misery that was junior high school. Even my science teacher loved his stuff.
My word, Randy Solem. Other than the two paragraphs above, it's hard to say anything else. Only ten years my senior and your life was cut short. It is a reminder that life is a fleeting thing, so wasting it would make an ocean of regrets upon anyone. Though I never physically met the man, I am sure Randy never wasted anything regarding his life. You were never my family and yet, there you were; your animations making me laugh and smile when I was at odds with my own family.
I will certainly miss you, Randy Solem. May you rest in peace for eternity.
God damn. The mario vs sonic was one of the few movies that I've seen when I met this website. I loved it and watched it all the time, too bad the creator died, I should've thanked him for the flash at least.
R.I.P Randy Solem.
Awwwwww, god why!
The Beauty of physics can be itself or others,
is the beauty of physics.
I can't really say my experiences with Randy Solem on his website was anything I enjoyed, (A long, long time ago.) but, I would be lying to myself if I said he wasn't the one who originally inspired me into making Flash movies back in the day. As well as many others.
Rest in peace.
after hearing this news i decided to gather all of my guild members in a chat system i use and hold a funeral of my own to give a video game parody god[in my eyes] a proper sendoff.prayers were said for the family and i gave him the 21 bow salute.-salutes to randy's family and gives the guild flag to them-thank you for blessing the world with such a good person and talented artist.my guild presents to you in honor of him our guild's flag.
That is sad.
I like the idea of the page.
The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!
Also, I like annoying Americans by calling English football "real football" and American football "rugby".-Lost-Chances
After talking with a bunch of old members of the VGDC community, I still feel grief-stricken. I think I just need to call it a night for now.
I will miss you, Randy.

The Rise of the MK series was the one who brought me to NG a lot of years ago, when I discovered Flash-animation. So sad to hear about his death, his work still fascinates me. Rest in peace.
This comes as a huge shock. I was following his work since I was very young.. Absolutely shocked to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family and I wish the best for his child.
Having grown up watching Randy Solem's incredible work with my cruddy pc on dial up as a kid had always laughed and enjoyed watching at home, in school, and even to this day. ROTMK mdm 1 and 2 even mdl all of them brought me great laughs . Randy thank you for giving me great laughs delivering fantastic work to NG. you have my respect

36? That's no age to die at. We've been sadly robbed of another talented artist and pillar of the community.

I find it hard to swallow. I lurked around VGDC before I ever even joined Newgrounds. I remember talking to Randy personally, he was a p. chill br0
I remember those movies, loved em and Randy was a great animator. It's alway's a shame to lose such close friends and at a young age as well.
Rest well Randy.
RIP Randy. Here is an image of him in 2004 from the cartoon The Modorator.
Thanks Randy for inspiring so many people it was great to know you.
I worked with Randy on many Flash cartoons back in the day. I remember lots of late nights chatting with him as we were working on our random Mario toons. He was a great friend and he'll be missed. Hard to believe he's gone.

My God forgive, preserve and keep you.
NO! NO THAT CAN'T BE TRUE!!
