I've lurked on newgrounds for almost my entire life, and finally decided to submit something. It took about an hour to make. By the way, if you're going to give me a shitty rating (which I can already see has happened), can you do me a favor and verbalize your hate as well? I work well with criticism.

... I can understand why the judges give you first place, but honestly I think that they underestimated the quality of this submission. It has a great story, being funny and with a great flow, not being boring for a single second either, unlike some other submissions.

The voice acting is fantastic, I think you managed to hit the spot with every single voice, from the Rorschach-narrator to the prostitute and the main character. The sound effects were excellently used too, really adding depth and characterization to the whole thing, as well as the sparse songs, and I I love the <ding> sound you use to transition from the first and second scene!

All in all, this is very high quality stuff. The only problem was that the length was, sadly, too short. I know the rules didn't say anything about it, but being only a minute long is just too short, sadly. Had it been longer, I'm almost certainly would have won and deservedly too. Kudos and I can't wait to see what you'll do next!

__REVIEW FROM CONTEST__

FINAL SCORE - 78 *averaged from all judges - 10 points for such a short length*

I know I never said anything about length, but honestly, is it fair for someone who made a 6 minute long quality work that would have more flaws because its longer to have the same score as this? I talked it over and decided it would be fair to subtract 10 points out of the total 400 which averaged it out from a 80 to a 78.

Anyway, as for this the acting was fairly good for what it was for. Hilarious, in fact. Made me laugh my ass off at the narreration being the unoriginal yet hysterical SNAAKKEE voice. A cartoon could use your crazy voice. I loved the story, fairly original but waayyyyyy too short. The ending caught me off guard though, It wouldnt really make since for him to say HEY LOOK A TURTLE *crash* unless he was absolutely drunk. I did catch that he had some sort of strange mental disorder though.. buying a snickers bar and all ;) So all in all, your hilarious at voice acting but you should have put more effort into this. - 65

Thanks for entering the contest! *read below to see what the other judges said*

Definitely got a talent in this submission. Originally, I was bummed by the length of the whole thing but then accepted that maybe, it was for the best. The character with the deep, gruff voice; I was going to dock you points just because it sounded extremely forced but as soon as I heard the other characters' voices, I realized that this was an extreme satire of all those "other" voice acting shticks. The little ambient drones and cues were well-placed but I am not going to judge you for that. Your prostitute voice was spot on, keeping in mind that this was far from serious, which makes me wonder, would you be able to actually pull off a convincing female voice? The story itself was also nonsensical enough to work given the borderline ludicrous contest guidelines (wink.) The clerk was another clich├ęd voice that somehow worked and I think that the magic came from the mixing. None of the characters sounded "in-your-face," meaning that they all sounded like they were a part of this little world you created which is something some of the other submissions tried to emulate but failed. So, as I said, this was short, yes, but maybe that was necessary. I personally believe that submission like this could not have gone on for 3-6 minutes and remained interesting. Perhaps extending it to the 2-minute mark would have been good but exactly one minute? Works for me.

You're a prostitute?!?!, RobbieKhan------>
I LOVE this entry! The narrator reminded me of Rorschach.
Anybody ever tell you that?
You, my good man, are funny as all get out!
WoW! "Holy Sh*t, I've never been solicited by a prostitute before!"
Main character, FABulous, the party girl, great, Mmmmkay and the gas station clerk was cute as well (he had a particularly unique accent).
Heh heh heh I gotta check out some of your other stuff.
I wish you the best of luck in the contest, RobbieKhan!

.............Take care, be good and "fuc# off, M'kay".period
