I stopped reading there, nice post Tom good to see you figured out your goal in life.
People have made some great videos about NG but this one really strikes me for how succinct it is and how much it feels like it came direct from my heart. It's the short version of NG I want everyone to know and understand.
I wish we could, like, EXPLAIN this to people. I wish we could tap every animator and game developer, or at least a bunch of them, to one day, just with one big ass thunderclap, have a "Newgrounds Appreciation Day" where they talk about how Newgrounds helped them.
Of course, when videos like this get me feeling all passionate and inspired, my frustrations with the state of NG and the larger internet also emerge.
Things are gonna get better. We just need to organize a bit more imo. We can't just keep throwing things at the wall and waiting for some controversy or another to boost us up like we've been doing for 20 years. We gotta actually gotta get them to come here outside of the controversy - to come here because they know we're good, not because we're less bad.
