and when you fail at timing

was it not your sin that trapped the unicorn?
even now, the evil seed of what you've done
germinates within you
the last unicorn dies tonight
as her blood ebbs, the sun sets forever
there shall never be another dawn

well folks, another year has passed and another epoch has been marked on the calendars of our e-hearts. i woke up this morning with a phone call from my agent . he usually doesn't call this early so i knew something was up. "sir, please open newgrounds this instant." i scramble out of bed and run 3 feet to my desk where i will spend the rest of my life. and there it was, a PM from the man himself - tom fulp.

"Congratulations, team of Metal Gear Funnies. You have all been selected as the winners of the 2008 Tank Awards!"

i won't go into much more detail as i'm sure the presses are already rolling - but let's put it this way. the video on the fp is, you guessed it, a prank. the real winners will be announced soon. and since you're dying to know what they are right now, i'll go ahead and spill the beans:

movie of the year: Metal Gear Funnies - doesn't get more epic than a 30+ user collaboration of some of the most classic laughs that will certainly be remembered for generations to come due to its relevance in society.

game of the year: Sneaky Snake's Adventure - learn how to type and have fun in this retro-style game with a unique physics engine designed specifically for exploding snakes.

musician of the year: redmongoose - with swingin' samples from the speakeasy's of the 1920's fused with fresh beats from the wired generation, there's nothing more diverse than the music of redmongoose.

user of the year: Shaun McGlinn - a man who changed an entire generation by making "look at my dick!" a household catchphrase from the high-rise condos of bustling cities down to the humble farm homes of the midwest.

here are two of the trophies from this year ready to be shipped out. congratulations, winners !

2008 Tank Awards - NOT what you think! Details inside.

mindchamber is deepthroat

So maybe mindchamber was NGHardcore after all? I mean he does admit to registering it. how bored would this fat balding mexican really be to send me this post then fool me into posting it only to claim he just registered it to prove me wrong is this a run on sentence yet?

I seriously can't believe I was a fan of this kid. He has proved to me how nasty he can really be, and basically convinced me you just can't ignore a person's efforts to make your time as miserable as possible, and still be their fan

You Live and Learn LMAO.

i know a lot of people are not very open to CS4 or don't like it, but i think we all had similar feelings when CS3 came out and now most of us use it. or not... but still. i'm always a sucker for updating my software even if there's no real reason (and i do it the 'easy' way cough cough). but i've been messing with CS4 a little over the past few weeks and i have to say i'm pretty impressed with some of the new features.

i think for the first time adobe has listened to animators and tried to implement some new features that will help us a lot. like the new tweening system. it is similar to after-effects and is much more visually driven. yes, the properties window can get a bit bulky, but it's also important to customize your interface. and these days, most digital animators have dual monitors. in this case i think it would come in REALLY handy. but sometimes you don't even need it - seeing your motion paths and being to edit them -right- on the stage is very handy.

there's also some other neat but probably useless things like the deco and spraypaint tool. oh and let's not forget bones - which i think will produce a lot of great animations, but at the same time increase the amount of stick animations. but hey, at least their limbs will stay together. it could also be used for a lot of really neat mechanical and game-oriented stuff.

long story short i'm really excited to see what comes out of the CS4 department.

and one thing i've tried to do with my website is create a flash wiki full of free resources and tutorials for animators and programmers. since i created it last year it has been accessed over 100,000 times and over 8gb of resources downloaded from it.

however, it is far from complete. there's hardly any AS tutorials on it and the animation tutorials are mostly bits and pieces. but now with CS4 upon us i would like to take this opportunity to ask all of you if you'd like to help out.

flashwiki is dead and gone, and now my project - anipedia - is the only wiki dedicated to flash and animation left. i know there are other tutorial and resource sites out there, but i feel like there has never been one comprehensive site a person could go to and get all the info they could want. that's what i've wanted to build and i'll keep going at it. but it would be impossible for me to do it alone.

if you want to help, it works just like wikipedia. runs on the same software.

as a buildling block, i made this page, which has a layout of a keyboard and a list of all the tools in CS4. from there, they will branch out to other tutorial pages, or simply explain what a tool does. it could be a starting point for people starting with CS4.

if you would like to help, check out an example of what a tutorial should look like on anipedia, and feel free to PM me or add me on aim/msn. i'm also on IRC, server irc.rizon.net, channel #thebackalleys. there's forums dedicated to the project on my site as well.

anyway, thanks for your time, and even if you don't want to help i appreciate those of you who have found use out of anipedia as well.

also here's a screenshot to a "cartoon" that's part of a "collab" . i don't know when it's coming out.

CS4 tutorials anyone?

"Rtil is not the messiah of flash, or NG, he's a hypocrite that loves to put down anyone that is against his opinion, and he does this from the luxury of his mommies home, all toasty in his Digipen PJs. Kinda ironic for someone who has actually drawn Mario more times than anyone one of us in the office put together." -Mindchamber, professing his misplaced envy for me once more

Let's point out a few things here. I don't simply put people down who are against my opinion - I put them in their place. In fact just last week I had a bare-knuckle brawl with the lawyer team for Bowser's Kingdom. Let's just say they're at the dentist's office right now.

Secondly, I do not enjoy the luxuries of my mother's home, unlike our lucky friend Minchamber. I live in an apartment and I pay my own bills, mostly by selling original art and having a real job. What a novel idea!

Thirdly, I do not wear PJ's, and don't you forget it. I often walk around naked, or with plaid boxers. But never PJ's. In fact, I don't live within a one-mile radius of anyone who owns them. I forbid it. If I ever become president I will outlaw them. And I will also deport Mindchamber, and his PJ's.

And lastly - but most importantly - every time I draw Mario, I get a hefty check from the Mario lobby. I just can't turn the thing down. A guy's gotta live, y'know? If Mindchamber knew what was good for him, he'd switch from getting his rocks off to Madness and kindly direct his attention to the true king of Newgrounds.

"Im realizing that theres alot of fun that's just disappearing from NG." -Mindchamber, being ironic

Well Mindchamber, you're no fun! Seriously, whenever you troll my forums everyone gets a big fat frown. Kind of like the one on your big fat FACE. Dude, 0wned.

"Arent you the same person who labels every user on NG idiots and morons? and what gives YOU the right to do that? because you can draw? because you [sic] anime library is bigger than theirs? Pffft. hypocrite." -Mindchamber, being jealous of my anime collection

Let me make it clear to everyone here that the moment you sign up to this site, you unwillingly sign a binding contract with Satan himself that your life and your being now belongs to all things evil. It's in the ToS in really small font and same color as the background. If only I would have seen it before I had signed up here. Woe is me. But alas, I fight to this day, and that's what separates me from you, Mindchamber. I'm a Warrior. And I also have every volume of Sailor Moon. Including the Sailor Stars OVA. Suck it.

"Im [sic] too busy to search through all of rtil['s] posts in which he demeans the audience of newgrounds for their poor choices and lack of insight." -Mindchamber, pretending he is busy/important

Are you too busy to search through my posts? I mean, you are on the job, perusing my website. Such a tragedy - a poor young boy trapped in an adult man's greasy body. If only things like Halo and Limp Bizkit were around when you were 13 so you could have vented all this misplaced anger at a younger age. And oh yeah - Newgrounds, I demean you for your poor choices and lack of insight. Go watch Fantasia right now.

"haha I may not be a [sic] good an animator as you are, but I will always, always be way more honorable than you will ever be. I will make my decisions based on, creativity, technical skill, and effort. not on the fact they are whiny faggots in real life." -Mindchamber, juicing his ego

You see folks, honor is all about trolling. So get on it. It is your duty to go out in to the world and spread your righteous truth from which it comes. And don't forget to post a Madness day cartoon next year.

And I believe we met at Comic-con two years ago. And while I may have obtained a megaphone, and I may have climbed to the top of the Sci-Fi booth, and Imay have started an anti-Foamy rally, let's not be hasty. Whiny faggot in real life? We need to spend some more quality time together, Mindchamber. I am a civil man, and I've discussed very important business matters over many a filet mignon and a white wine. You know, things like Newgrounds.

"you're right rtil, completely right.

I have no idea what Im talking about." -Mindchamber, finally realizing he is wasting his time

Thank you for conceding to my superior intellect. It's great when two level-headed parties can come to a sound agreement.

Anyway folks, there's plenty more where that came from, but I'm beat. Come back next week when I dig through my inbox for embarassing celeb PM's!

my favorite mindchamber quotes ^_^

a while ago i had an idea about taking one of my favorite songs, shortening it to DDR length, making my own steps to it and then making an animation to go with it. so i took Chromeo's Fancy Footwork Guns 'N Bombs Remix (link"), and made my own stepchart. i've had an idea for a cartoon for this song for a long time - and believe it or not it involves dancing . dancing and guns and girls and stoplights. something like that

so i have the two main characters for this thing already laid out, you can see them below. my idea for the cartoon is something that would be fun to watch standalone, and also make playing the stepchart more fun at the same time.

if you want to try my simfile here it is zipped. if you have stepmania you'll want to unzip it in a custom folder in your "songs" folder. let me know if you like the steps or not. i've also added a background, banner and those cool spinning CD images.

anyway, i'm pretty excited about this. it'll be a while until i can start the cartoon, but i just wanted to put the idea out there. and just in case anyone asks, yes i am working on freetown but don't expect it any time soon. school has me by the neck right now.

DDR (and animation) fans!

The Newgrounds Game is a working title for a game I will never make that mirrors the reality of Newgrounds itself! With the popularity of mind numbingly boring grind simulation games, who wouldn't want to play a game where you work your way from zero to hero on the flash portal? I know, right. So, I've created this handy guide that will help you work through the game, and newgrounds itself! If you are struggling on this site, drop everything that is dear to you and start cashing in on something else!

In the game, there are 3 critical elements to success, on which you can choose to be a reinassance man and embrace all three, or focus on one:

backfeeding: this skill requires you to use other characters outside of newgrounds to gain noteriety. this path will increase your CRITICAL DEFENSE and LOSS OF REALITY skills, but it will lower COMMON SENSE.

namedropping: this skill requires you to use characters and personalities exclusive to newgrounds to gain noteriety. This includes putting them in your cartoons, as well as using their voices and other talents, and then mentioning it as much as possible. This path will increase EXCESSIVE HUBRIS, UNWARRANTED SELF-IMPORTANCE, STAFF SUCK-UP and SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION skills, but it will lower ACT YOUR AGE.

dry-wringing: Once you have succeeded in backfeeding, namedropping, or both (!), you must now harness the power of wringing it dry. Or you could just take any idea and turn it into a series (bonus points if it's about teenagers playing video games.) This process takes years, but it becomes easier and the effort-to-noteriety ratio is much larger in favor of noteriety! It involves creating the same cartoon formulas you have created in the past over, and over, and over again to no avail. This will increase CASH COW, and a chance to max out CRITICAL DEFENSE and LOSS OF REALITY! However, there is a 3% chance that you will invoke DELETE FUCKING EVERYTHING for each successive cartoon you create after this point. This chance increases by 1/2 of the previous % increase per episode (1.5%, 0.75%, etc). However, not all hope is lost - once you do this, you can roll for a 50% to invoke LOL JUST KIDDING, restore your series and return to your former glory!

With enough luck (and selling out), you could be on a one-way ticket to Newgrounds fame. Numbers don't lie, folks!

Oh yeah - and when you're too popular for newgrounds, don't forget to upload all your stuff to youtube so it's easier to steal and the quality gets ruined. Bigger better bolder badder bigger!!! Who wouldn't want a second audience of video blogging halfwits?!

The Newgrounds Game!
