This is a marvellous pun for people who think Facebook is shit.

It's nice to see Date for One get into the top 20 under my own power.

EXACTLY my thought.

How can people like Explosm so much anyways? Eh, it's not really funny, the jokes are just kinda uncalled for. Then again, that's just me, humor can be relevant, but even so, it is indisputable that the animation is vaguely decent. Whine whine, not like it matters so much, guys, it's online free entertainment, so it is fully displayed towards the largest audience, in this case, the casual user who drops in and votes depending on their taste (ergo, "lol, that was soooo unexpected" over presentation and reviewed script)

Come to think about it, it's not like the site's community sucks, youth in general are ignorant and stuff.

Eh, either way, I'm glad PigPen won something.

Completely missing the point bro.
Palette swapped stick figures in the same general plot with poorly timed comedy is my issue with it.

Explosm is taking over the portal and I particularly don't like it.

I'm disappointed in the scores and position of Explosm submissions, they're funny and such but they are no way the best thing on this site, it's a shame we're all so fickle in our voting, newgrounds has been plagued by "vote 0 or 5" recently, since 2006 it seems the scores have been edging closer and closer to flat 5 and I don't think "Beer run" is any better than some of the stuff from 2006 that didn't score 4.25+.

OH WELL SUCH IS THE COMMUNITY. I hope pigpen wins some sort of massive prize because that has to be favourite my favourite Newgrounds animation, had every good quality a Flash needs!

I love Explosm and their videos... but they just kinda took over the whole site.

It's official guys, you can't submit a movie on a Thursday from now on.

Thanks for the Plug-In Tom! Appreciate it a lot. I hope the thread starts picking up soon. The Artists will have their work ahead of them if we start getting too many story submissions right away.

I might need a moderators help in containing the thread a bit. Maybe for lock out periods so Artists can keep up and have time to draw and detail their work. This is if the thread gets heavy traffic. We'll see what happens.

Sorry for the late night posting. I had just read your message after getting back from Bourbon street in the French Quarter, celebrating the Saints victory. =)

A lot of people make stuff for different purposes rather than showing off their drawing ability or deep meaning. Explosm combines decent cartoon animation with cheap random humor for laughs from people who don't care for artistic or script appreciation. I'd say he succeeds in his goal. whether someone agrees with it or not (i don't) is up to his fanbase and cyanide and happiness has been around for awhile so it's not like he's just started milking it or anything


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

While Beer Run placing first was pretty stupid that's definitely not as stupid as the advertisement for their god damn book placing that high. ://////

:I'm guessing The Man Who Could Sit will place first next month if the Newgrounds voters are predictable enough

Pigpen didn't go by unnoticed though so that's a plus.

I didn't see Scale of the universe until after I voted sadly, or else it definately would have been in my picks!

For some reason I lost my ability to vote during the last couple months, so I'm glad to be back at that again :)

Best of January 2010


GAH!

I think the explosm shorts are surprisingly well done for the apparent simplicity. I still wouldn't have put it above happy harry though, he's so hot right now.

Congrats winners!

PigPen won thankfully.
But yeah my guess is Explosm will get first place every single month because he spends like a day at most on his videos.
