Super Smash Super Smash

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Absolutely amazing.

I's funny to me all the people dissatisfied by Luigi smoking "weed," yet I've seen no one at all opposed to the severextreme physical abuse of Peach.
Seriously, Mario and Luigi are being portrayed as ELITE STREET HARDCORE GANGSTAS, YO. Smackin' down, smokin' weed, and disrespecting women is what they do, the joke being (I assume) that it's done to such an absurd degree. The author might not at all advocate the illegal use of drugs. (But he probably does :P)

Ah, and btw, flash was amazing, flawless I'd say, gj, keep up the good work, kthxdone.

The Future Wasn't There The Future Wasn't There

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This accidentally made me laugh

At the point when he finally got in the time machine and it disappeared in the cloud of smoke, a though came to me. I thought, "y'know, it would be hilarious if after this whole buildup and everything, that after the machine vanished in the flash of light, it just ended. Like, we think it's going to scene change to him traveling in time, but it turns out the machine doesn't work and he really just got vaporized."

And then, it just ended, with just the smoldering floor and scorch marks remaining. I burst out laughing, thinking that that's just what you had done. Upon retrospect, I am very doubtful that that's what you had in mind, but you do say that it's all open to our interpretation. So, that's what I'm saying is what happened. He died. As for what kind of message that could portray? "Silly man, there's no such thing as time travel."

Now this is something different entirely

You never cease to amaze. I keep thinking you're the coolest guy I know, but then you just keep getting cooler.

Your style is as delightful and inspired as ever. The story was very fun, if more serious and mind-grinding than your normal fair. The execution was very original and...
I dunno... just wow.

So, basically, what I'm trying to say is: cool, awesome, sweet, chic, fab, neat, well done, all the platitudes. Loved it, 10/10, etc.



TLB - Collision TLB - Collision

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It delivers what it promises

It's short, it's stupid, and it's a collision. What more can one ask for. Of all the 10-second long flashes I've seen on Newgrounds... well... you're the first...



--The Zelda Collab-- --The Zelda Collab--

Rated 2 / 5 stars

I watched it.

Nothing particularly caught my eye... or my heart. Some of the entries looked pretty decent, more of them didn't.
A lot of the jokes were just rehashed Zelda jokes that are done everywhere and all the time. I didn't really find anything particularly funny, but if something was at all interesting and original, I enjoyed it, if only as a reprieve from rest of the collab.

I guess I would summarize this collab as "I've seen worse..."



Brawl Funnies [Dick 2] Brawl Funnies [Dick 2]

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I don't get it

So does Tom Fulp represents Newground's target demographic? And is the janitor supposed to be the current state of US copyright law and its enforcement? And what does audience response have to do with the front page?
Do you guys LIKE Brawl Taunts? Or is this something more...? Wait, is rtil the antagonist? And why would you kill off the main character by just the 5th scene?
I must say that this flash raises far more questions than it gives answers, and it's obvious from [Dick 3] that you don't intend to take the series any further, or answer any of the pressing questions on fans' minds.
I will say that I liked all of the art, and find it to be a vast improvement over the previous entry.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Your para-parody parodies discourage me :(

I don't get why you think cartoons need to be at the top of the front page for anyone to ever be able to find them. People don't need to be spoon fed it all. They will find what they want if they want it.

Also too... was that you (in the flash)? You look so weird... and sexy!

A few months ago ashford pride made a movie with a foreboding title. It was called "Awesome Grounds".

Well ladies and gentlemen, that's might as well what this site should be called (at least right now), with the top row on the front page slot dedicated to an "awesome" movie and an "awesome" parody, an "awesome" t-shirt in the newgrounds store, and pretty much every "awesome" movie in the top 100, along with han's "awesome's creed".

I can't go to newgrounds with seeing something not about egoraptor or his coveted video game parody series. It makes me wonder sometimes if pursuing anything but half-assed cartoons making mildly funny observations about video games laced with profanity is even worth it. Truly, they are what bring the masses of 13-year olds to this site, and thus increases traffic and competition in the internet world. But you have to ask yourself, with this sort of two-bit audience increasing in numbers, are they really interested in watching anything else?

I understand that it's a dog eat dog world in the online entertainment business, and to compete you have to pretty much put up content that a majority of internet browsers would click on. This includes either women or video games. Things they already know they want. And that's all they want. They sign up, watch more, and come back and do it again later. They're trained to know that what they want is easily accessible and is promoted all over the site.

Original content is often shuffled off to the bottom of the page, or never gets any attention to begin with. Now comes into play the whole 'they won't click on it unless there's a boob for the icon', etc etc. That's because they've been fashioned to think that way.

I'm not saying i have all the mysterious answers to the way people's minds work. But this much is true - if all people click on are breasts and video game icons, and you give them breasts and video game icons, you're not pushing the envelope.

Newgrounds is the epitome of user-generated content. We already have a massive advantage over youtube in the fact that making a cartoon involves so much more creativity than snappily editing your webcam footage. So instead of 200 cartoons coming out every minute, we have 200 cartoons coming out every day. That gives someone a better chance of breaking out and being discovered for his hard work, and a reward for a job well done.

But in the same way that viewers are trained that they don't have to go out of their way to avoid original content they would otherwise enjoy, authors are becoming more and more disenchanted with their personal creations and are turning to nerd culture icons and cheap tactics to get viewers.

I can't tell you how many animators I have spoken to that have shunned their own creations in favor of sub-pop culture parody and disjointed scripts sprinkled with toilet humor and profanity. a cartoon catering to everyone who's forgotten what cartoons are all about. And here we are shoving away everything about cartoons that was originally appealing and magical, because we're pretty much forced to.

I'm not pointing the finger at any one person here. I think it's part of the bigger picture - bigger than Newgrounds, too. But if people really care about the future of cartoons and animation, we wouldn't be seeing this kind of blatant favoritism.

People will find what they want if they want it. They don't need to be spoon fed it all.

For thirty years animators who strive to create something genuinely unique have gotten nothing but a slap in the face. It's sickening and it has to stop someday, before they all disappear.

Lastly, this post is not about me. I'm not writing this out of self-pity, bitterness or spite. I'm being honest. I care a lot about the future of animation, and what I see around me is very troubling. The industry is bad enough, but where the future lies is in the small corners of the animation world. Newgrounds is one of them. I spend a lot of time trying to encourage and teach frame-by-frame animation, and creating your own characters and scripts. That is what is important

C: "Supposed death"? If nothing else, I think we can all agree that Jesus probably died...
D: I'm hungry for bunnies. I'ma go eat some.
