Discovery's Win Nuts

Sat Dec 18, 2004 11:02 pm

After watching a few episodes of Win Nuts on DSC's mini-marathon last night, I was wondering if anybody can answer a question for me.

It concerns Tim, the guy that just seems to walk around and bitch about everything. The guy who really doesn't do anything. They kept putting up a memorial to him before and after the show. In memory of Tim 1965-2004.

Anyone know what happenend to Tim? Did they even say? Did I miss that part?

I don't know what happened, but that might explain why they pulled the show after only a few episodes. Maybe they were finally ready to bring it back and we can see more. I actually enjoy the show. Did you see those DL L1011 carts? I wonder if they could just send the origional cart with a sound system and none of that chrome or whatever they put on it!

Basically his girlfriend from the east coast moved in with him in the attic. He got up one night to raid the fridge. Died with a pizza roll in his hand. She found him on the floor.

My wife and I were watching one of the show last night, Tim is a major bitcher. So many times I was like "fire the guy" It was the episode about the DC-9 tables. Did you see all the old DC-9's? I wonder if NWA knows a few of theirs were there. They would be pissed, they could get at least 10 more years. Smile

Tim was a major bitcher. Trouble was he wasn't getting paid so it was kind of hard to fire him. Amazing he kept coming back in fact...

BTW: The reason he was hired in the first place was to film a pilot Motoart could pitch to Discovery.

So the guy probably had high blood pressure (DUH!) and had a heart attack?

I did enjoy the DC9 episode....................I think it's my favorite up til now.

See all those TWA ones in the last scheme? Amongst others!

The sources I found didn't give an exact cause of death. It was a month or so ago. You might google it now and find additional info.

Moto art's website said Tim had a heart that was 3 times too large for his body, so I'm guessing he died of heart problems.

I didn't know that, I didn't like his role. I have only seen like 2 episodes, so I have no room to talk.

I did a search after I saw the memorial several weeks ago. He was more than just a major pain in the arse. He was also a dear friend of the family (both Dave's and Donovan's). When you see the episode where he (Tim) gets fired, you see Donovan calling him every 30 minutes and Dave starts to lose sleep over the whole incident. They put up with his shit becase they were all good friends and friends of each others family.

Give me a break, if everything on that show is true they are all the biggest bunch of losers. First of all Tim should never have been allowed to go near that place. He was a washed up singer of some wannabe Poison, Glam band who was flat broke and couldn't contribute a thing to that company. Friend or no friend. He didn't even make an effort to learn anything and seemed to just want to be the director. Second that idiot owner or half owner had no money. If you can't make payroll every week it's time to hang it up. I couldn't believe he called a customer who had purchased two tables from him and only had received one and that loser calls him and asks for half the remaining balance on the second which was not to be paid till delivery. What a joke. What they were doing with old aircraft parts was great but go get some CAPITAL!  Angry
