Some terrible news to report today, Film Smash team member and friend Proutcast, aka Randall Perry has passed away after a hard fought bout with cancer.
The thing I’ll remember most about Randy is that he was a funny guy, had a warm personality, and was always about giving his best. Always one to give, he was a valued team member and a good friend. Despite never actually meeting him in person, I’d known Randy for years; ever since the glory days of the now defunct KFCC forums and when he graciously agreed to come on as a contributor here at Film Smash. As I look back at all of our conversations online, whether it was about movies, life, or just nothing of real consequence at all, I lament the fact I never had a chance to watch a film with him in person, share a meal, or just shake the hand of someone who was one of the most giving and kindest people I was lucky enough to know. I’m certainly no kind of writer who can properly articulate how I’m feeling at this moment, but I just want to say:
“Proutcast, I’ll miss you and we’ll see each other again.”
