Nice Chris-Chan reference. Once again, you've produced a very entertaining and entirely novel (as far as I can tell) toon. Great stuff! My only criticism is that you should be doing more :D
Obvious as soon as I looked at the username, but still worth a chuckle. Semi-well played.
TERRIBLE! Except for the voice acting in #7 :P
Feel good romantic comedy of the year! Someone call Roger Ebert!
Great scott, this was really hilarious. You've seamlessly merged pop culture satire and absurdism (yet again, I should mention) into a machine gun short of laughs. I salute your vision, creativity and skill as both a visual and literary artist.
I can see why people had different interpretations, particularly those deviating from your allegory of drug use. That being said, I think it only stands as a testament to the imaginative force behind this 'toon, and how elegantly the layers of allegory can be peeled back.
Speaking of allegory, I think the "piggy bank" idea as a method of ingestion was pure fucking genius. Your drawing style, coupled with some tastefully used surrealism, really make this flash stand out. Favorited and five'd.
TEH OH NOEZ!
OMG TIS FLSH IS TEH SUXX XCEPT 4 TEH RINA-CHN PRT WHIC WUZ LEIK So0o0o0o0o0o0 UBER HAWT LOLOLOLOLOLOL. U R TEH CYBUR BULLIEZ AND R MEEN ='( ^_^ DESU KAWAII
People don't really appreciate satire do they? Moreover, the reaction to this flash just probes that the audience of Newgrounds - just like our beloved ads - has changed for the worse. 14 year old Nintendo fantards.
Right - the flash. The animation wasn't fantastic, but it certainly caps the point that so long as something makes reference to Brawl or Nintendo or whatever stupid shit people enjoy these days, the art doesn't really matter. The jokes were for the most part spot on and cut to the point. I laughed out loud, which is a rarity. That being said, I think its safe to say that this is a dead horse.
Now lets wait for this review to be flagged as useless by the legions of ANGRY PH4NZORZ.
(P.S. I seriously can't get enough of that cyber bullying comment three posts down... WHAT HAS NEWGROUNDS BECOME!?!?!)
People are too rough on this
This is a singularly unique insight as to the artist's inner frustration at every castle containing that great, nigh-on unattainable reward. If anything, the use of sprites is a bit of "found art", if you will, expressing mankind's inner strife, pondering the seeming ad infinitum proccess of attaining unsatisfying goals, until realizing one's ultimate destination is the same as all others.
Am I reading too much into it? Yeah? Okay...
Sure, its crap, but I think its funny. Its an over the top, crap-on-purpose flash that doesn't deserve the flak it gets, and should be appreciated for what it is, not judged by the same standard as "OMG EPIK FLASH LOLLOL 5"
Obviously theres two reasons vote this down, because of the art and because of the tasteless depravity.
Frankly, given its a 2003 flash, its pretty good, so I see no problem there. Also, who the fuck WOULDN'T want their bones fucked by Eddie Balin? This kind of tasteless humor is what makes Newgrounds awesome, not your overly sanitized-before-viewing 4Kids TV shit.
If you can't deal with it, read the fucking Mature rating on the movie before watching.
As for the movie, its delicious. You take crass, bawdy humor and elevate it to an artform, kind sir. You strip all dignity from the kindest of souls and cum all over it. For this, I am indebted. The only criticism I can fathom is why you aren't doing more of this.
You have discovered exactly what the people want.
This moviefilm is extremely funny and perfectly satirizes what people tend to laugh at on the Internet. This is an A+ effort all around, and I think it tells affirms that cartoons don't need to be polished or super "well done" in the say, Bitey of Brackenwood sense, to be entertaining.
