I don't even know where to begin. I first found VGDC back in March of 2002. I would visit VGDC every single day to watch his flash movies and browse around the site. One day while on VGDC I saw the ad for newgrounds with Mario popping up. So I clicked it and found another website I would be addicted to for the next ten years.
Getting back to Randy, I saw Goof Troop Kombat and loved it. This movie is where I would eventually get my namesake before the lockdown happened. In 2003, I remember when VGDC was redesigned. I wasn't happy about it because of the loss of the navigation music. I eventually grew used to it and would wait for a new flash by Randy.
Fast forward to 2005. From the first day I found VideogameDC, I always wanted to make my own flash toons. I got a
copy of flash mx 2004 from my schools computer lab and starting making stuff. I always found it amusing that an artist who makes sprite movies inspired me but I haven't made one yet. Newgrounds has been a big part of my life and to hear about then death of my main inspiration is extremely saddening and just flat out shocking. I thank you Randy for the countless laughs I've had. Rest in peace.
