I think you're right regardless of what we saw, Randy was a good person but it was not the side he showed to a lot of people and thats fine to say. Sure it sucks that he died but yeah he was who he was and we were who we were. Unfortunately, nothing could change the past or in Randy's case the future. We could with those who are still alive though.

He definitely influenced a lot of amazing artists though, and paved the way for alot of sprite animators who later became professionals.

Oh My Gosh! Poor man... He died so early...However, I hope that his life was very "not bad".Rest In Peace, Randy Solem...

His movies are the ones that inspired me to create flash movies, and it turn influenced the entire rest of my life. He was a huge inspiration and a legendary animator....... I am very sad to hear this. I love you Randy Solem, rest in peace my friend. You will always live on through the internet.

omfg johnny, seriously, constant text walls aren't fun. Get over trying to persuade someone's opinion of someone, it's useless. Especially when the person you're talking about is dead, no offense to Randy but there is no point defending him. Leave your tribute and accept that people either liked him or they didn't. THE END

I get where both of you guys are coming from. I understand both views. MindChamber made it a point to state he isn't speaking on behalf of Randy as a person all around. He has his opinion of him and he stated it's from what he knew of him online as Randy. That's fine and everyone knows were all different online. I see Johny's point, especially when it comes to people going onto personal attacks and then leading into actual insults and ill-will toward him and his family after his passing, which is the fucked part and the part that shows who really has insecurity issues.

But anyway, bury the bullshit and just let the thread be what it's for. Twelve and counting pages of positive comments outweigh the negative comments that wouldn't even make up a full page.

Are you serious?? Thats a shame!! I was one of the great leyends of Newgrounds and Flash Movies!

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-25 01:43:36


Aww that's too bad. I hope his family will be okay. It's a shame about his daughter.

RIP Randy. He really made some awesome sprite movies. I even feel worse since he died on my b-day... ;_;

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-25 07:37:05


I didn't know him, but I know some of his sprites movies. Some of the ones he made are among my favorites. I hope that he can rest in peace and live on within the heavens. Even as your journey is over on this earth. You will continue on through those who cared for you.

Rest in peace, Randy. Thank you for the amazing sprite animations.
You will be missed...T_T

I made a remix of Randy's Boy and His Blob movie. I'm not actually credited on it because it was before we had the co-author system. I could add myself now but reading the reviews... maybe I shouldn't.

Really? You call that shameful? I wouldn't regret too much if I were you.

And what are you talking about legends? You barely did much.

Haha yeah I remember this! Also MindChamber your pico artwork is used in his yoshi island 2 flash, in death #4!
Randy was a revolutionary artist, and his sprite scapes in ROTMK4 are unbeatable. Everybody can be a lil douchey at times, but overall I thought he was a great person. He was there when we needed him, and he changed the game in many, many, ways.

R.I.P Randy.

I didn't even know the founder of Newgrounds died until now. I actually wanted to meet the guy and say hello via PM today.

This sucks. :'(

Tom is alive. Randy was a massive contributor to NewGrounds, but not a founder.

R.I.P. Randy.

You were one of the reasons I kept coming back to Newgrounds in 2002 and then signed up in '03. I'll miss you.

Response to Randy Solem, 1975-2012 2012-03-26 00:14:28


*sigh* Oh boy... here we go again...

If you want to move on since Randy died then make your move. No one's telling you which path to go because it's all up to you.

It's subjective.

I can't wait until you finally suck down your final breath, curl up in a ball, and die. After that happens, I'm going to write all sorts of nasty things in your R.I.P. thread.

I'm really sad, actually. He was the person who got me into animating when I was a kid, and without Rise of the MK I wouldn't have been where I am today..
