I was moved to tears.

    As an avid reader and sometimes poster on this blog, I wish Tim best of luck in the next phase of his journey at DMag. It’s surprising it took this long for him to fire himself.

    Where are the drinks being poured tonight?

  • RAB

    Any chance you can add the sound effect when Tim hits the microphone with his iPhone in that last picture?

    (Also, has Tim ever explained why he was clutching his iPhone during his speech in the first place?)

    • Zac Crain

      He was holding his phone because he had his speech typed on it and wanted to be able to refer to it if he went off the rails. I’m not sure when he abandoned that plan.

    • Tim Rogers

      I wrote my speech (such as it was) on my phone during the flight to NYC. As I walked to the stage on unsteady legs, I was certain that I would forget what I intended to say. So I took out the phone in case I needed reminding. That’s why.

      Just stupid.

      Here’s the very funny thing that Zac wrote last year about that speech:

  • Tim Rogers

    The hair looked good, right? RIGHT?

    • RAB

      Zac, can you please post the frames from the beginning of Tim’s speech, when his win was first announced and he was running up to the podium (i.e., the view of the back of his head)?

      Thank you for your service.

  • David Burrows

    It’s like a silent film, directed by David Lynch and sponsored by Apple. (sniff)

  • RAB

    That’s still about the 800 funniest words ever assembled together on one page.

  • BrentDude

    Tim who?

  • Eric Celeste

    Never saw it until now. Pure greatness.

  • Wylie H Dallas

    If I still want to engage in dialog with Mr. Rogers, I assume I should just feel free to drop in on him at home?

  • Long Memory

    That’s not what you said last week, Zac.
