Looks good and all...
But I just can't stand reading. Plus it's upwards around 5 MB. Flash may not be ready for you.
Being an artist is really not as difficult as you are making it sound. I am familiar with the feelings of fear as you set off for school but those feelings are not unique to artists or anyone else. Especially, when starting off on what is only a personally uncharted path. Remember Fight Club. You aren't special. You are not a Snowflake. And everything you want to do has already been done. You'll be better off enjoying yourself and having fun with it all than getting up tight about such trivial crap.
My two cents
I kinda just wanted to throw in my thoughts because user "Butcer" rated this so low. His opinion counts for shit and I hope when account clean up comes around, he gets wiped away.
Personnally, I've found all the Squigo shorts to be stylistically clean and well designed. The strange interactivity with an environment on "as needed" basis keeps the shorts surprising and humorous.
Great work. Keep it up.
Never any solutions...
I like the movie indefinitely. However, the idea of "choosing between two rich assholes..." who would never stop to pee on you let alone help you bothers me and always has. Based solely on you work here, I'd say you are more than just a quiet observer and you do something to say how you feel and express yourself. I shared that view at one time. For a short time. But as I get older, I am increasingly accepting of the fact that this is the way our country works and we really do have the power to change things albeit the results of our work may never be enjoyed during our lifetimes. Ben Franklin fought hard against slavery yet never saw the emancipation proclamation. Our problems with elected officials stems from the news. The news is evil. And in a few cases, so are our politicians. But so are our grocery baggers, and cops, and insuranse salesmen and so on. Political office nowadays grants officials celebrity status now and as we well know, The Enquirer, The Globe, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, and all that crappy media we are surrounded by think that is what we care about and sadly enough, there are enough people who do to justify and profit from it's publication. The news is not immune. It's actually starting to mesh... Holly wood and the news have allied themselves to a team. And that's our problem. That's the news' problem. And that's America's problem. Are prioorities don't lie behind a good life decorated by free choices and honest mistakes. Now we can excuse B.J.'s from 19 year old interns in the white house! THese are excusable actions. Rather than look inwardly to ourselves to solve our problems we look to the government, or the ACLU, or PETA for fuck's sake. Thankfully though, your piece ends with death. And when faced with the reality of it, you really only see life and notice just how strange it is when opposite "words" do such things to you. We live a long time. We have only one chance to make certain high weight decisions. And we make so many decisions every day that some of them seem almost irrelevant and unimportant because we know we will have to make them again. But death might have something to say about that notion. This may be your last chance to make the same decision. You may have already taken your last shit. And in the end, how would you want to be remembered? As the guy who was too cool to vote because all the candidates are the same? Or do you want to be the guy who bitched a lot and offered up no solution? Your indecision will lead you nowhere. You are stuck at a fork in the road when faced with any decision and when if the obvious paths both look a little off, or one is only slightly better than the other, start thanking heaven or whatever you believe in that you live in a world that affords you the freedom to carve out a new path. Stay concious of what you believe is right and base all of your decisions off of that. THis world needs more solutions and you can be a part of them. Bitching and complaining just raise the requirement of solutions and indecision will get you (or anyone in the future) nowhere. Great work. Great ideas. But listen and pay attention to our realities. When you agree with nothing the TV or politicians or news is saying, agree with your friend, or a third party, or a religion, or another country. Be a solution. Just kidding. The Evil New Rulz.... Foolz
Lying in your profile.
Your profile says you're a "Bas animator". Dead on lie man. Nice style. Nice timing. Only 715k. Nice work. For a minute I thought it was hippie bullshit and I was gonna have to hate it. Thanks for keeping the American dream alive.
I miss the classic style Nintendo formula. Sure the graphics didn't look "real", but those games are more playable now than Mario64 can ever dream to be. Hell, I'd rather play Zelda on the Gameboy than on N64. It's just a more playable game. There's something admirable about keeping it simple. Props man. I miss the Zelda cartoons every Friday from the SMB super show.
What a waste of good talent...
One little word of advice... trees don't care how old they are, they don't know if they get chopped down. Not sure if you are a aware but they don't have brains, thus, no feelings. Why don't you find some other cause to fight. Actually, why don't you give up all that feel-good B.S. treehugging, greenpeace shit. Sharben your steakknife. Eat an otter. And make some flash that entertains people. Or maybe, do research into private lumberyards. Learn about how trees are farmed rather than slash and burn colonial style rape. Don't look into federal ones. They are worse than colonial settlers. Motherfuckers own the land regardless so the government don't give a shit. But private sector lumberyards grow their own trees in a rotational farm type setting and constantly replant and nurture trees.
You unfortunately, are ignorant. Give it up. Light up. Or shut the fuck up. Your cause means shit.
Boy the idiot's are coming out tonight.
Danceboy. You're a full. America is the best. I don't think "tiresome" is the appropriate word. Maybe "bitter". Maybe "deluded". Perhaps even jealous but certainly not of these recent attacks. But the reason the US was a victim is because we exemplify most what Bin Laden hates. Freedom. Capitalism. Resilience. In no way am I knocking any other countries but for anyone to be upset over America being "the shit", you are a fool.
As for this movie. Worded excellently. Of course its another slideshow. This one had a music selection however where the words could be applied to this situation although in Jewel's stupid ass case, she was prolly singing about her own crusades to help the downtrodden cuz she's so admirable she needs to tell everyone she is. I don't know. Maybe all the slideshow folks should get together and make the callaborative epitome of tear-jerking slideshows.
I noticed something. Kinda upsets me. This situation is horrible and there is no question about it. But remember just prior to this atrocity, the big news frequently was Gary Condit and shark attacks. And now when I watch the news, most of the reporters are the sharks. News is news. But how long can they milk speculation which seems to be 40 to 50% of what we are getting. There are some exceptions and it's important to understand how terrible these people with missing or dead loved ones probably feel. I know I've cried on a few occasions but shit, anyone with a brain gets it. And if it needs to be said again, say it different. Better. Something. Damn I shouldn't drink so early.
Right on mofo.
I hate that damn show. But it's no better than any of the cartoons I watched regularly as a kid. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled then. I can't stand it now. He-Man! Don't even get me started.
Maybe I'm just an idiot...
But for shit's sake, I hope this is a million more things than the end. For too many people, it is the end of theirs and their loved ones' lves but this is more of a transition or even a beginning. Evidence is pointing more and more at Bin Laden, a man partially responsible for what seems like never ending turmoil in the middle east. Maybe this is where all the civil nations of the world take a stand and move more and more towards a global community and eventuaLLY peace. As much as I like the Doors, "The End" is far from here and I'm ready to hear some Kickass rock now. Obviously these terrorists have never seen a John Wayne movie or Dirty Harry. I guess they aren't familiar with how we do things around here.
