A Sad Goodbye
September 13th, 2010

Posted by Jeremy

It’s my sad duty this evening to announce  the departure of crewmember, CFO and Matt-doppleganger-prime, Tim Sevenhuysen, who has decided to move on from LoadingReadyRun.

Tim has been a huge asset to us since he joined the crew last year, helping keep everybody organized, making our bookkeeping massively more efficient, spearheading community initiatives like LoadingReadyRunners.com and Inside the Moon, and co-producing some of the best material we’ve made to date. He also has done a bang0up job producing behind-the-scenes material, and generally being a stand-up guy.

However, in life–as in all things–Q knows best, and as he is quick to point out in the series finale of Next Generation, all good things must come to an end. Tim has a busy life outside of LoadingReadyRun and his forthcoming masters thesis will be eating up much his time, now that the school year has begun. Speaking as someone who has been caught in the difficult bind between  school, a “real job” and the awesome–but time consuming and but not particularly glamorous–life of a web-based filmmaker, I can empathize with this.

We’ll be sad to see Tim go, but wish him luck in future projects. I encourage any of you who with to send him off with style to comment on this post, or send him an email. I believe he will continue producing fiftywordstories.com, and I’m sure he’ll find himself up to something else creative before we know it.

Love from all of us.

  2. Tim. We are all going to miss you on the site. I hope you still participate in the forums and come back to make a cameo every once in a while. Good luck with all you do!

  3. Do we get an episode of Commodore Hustle next week pathetically explaining why Stockholm leaves like we did when Morgan ‘left’?

  5. Tim! We’ll miss you more than you might realize! You’re a part of the crew that we’ve all fallen in love with, and now that you are leaving it…it…see this face? That’s right: sad face. Ok well no you can’t actually my face but I assure you its very sad.

    Thank you for working so hard without the praise you properly deserve, and good luck with your thesis! If I ever see you in person, I’m buying you a drink sir!

  6. I’ve never posted any comment on this site in the past, but I can’t let you go without first saying that you are a fantastic cameraman, actor, and community organizer. While you usually played straight-man roles in videos, you were always incredibly believable and helped to ground the crazy situation in reality. We will miss you, and I wish you luck in your future projects.

  8. wait, what? How did I miss this before?

    Dammit, now who’s gonna read us sociology papers during Desert Bus? That’s an important part of the LRR ecosystem.

  9. Sad to see Tim go. 🙁 …but he could still make a special appearance on Desert Bus for the children! 😀

    Best wishes! Have a great post-LRR existence, Tim!

  13. I miss keeping up with the site for a month and Tim leaves? No fair! You will be sorely missed Tim. Best of luck on your MA. Think you’ll go for a PhD? Are we going to see Dr. Tim? I’m sure you will do great things no matter where you end up.
