Yes, mediocre, crudely-animated cartoons are changing the face of animation, for sure. Flash "artists" come about a dime a dozen, & it's swell. Now everyone & their mother (& Jeff Weise!) can make crappy Flash "experiments" and then post them on Newgrounds to be blammed.
The best thing about "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" was the quote at the end, & it was only there for a split second. I read fast but even I barely caught it, & besides, they can't take credit for something that Walt Disney said anyhow. I don't see what's so monumental about a series of out-of-place characters. I know, let's get 3,000 people together to animate 1 frame each for a single two and one half minute movie. It will be better than dog shit.
I’m simply an anti-transcendentalist. Not that Newgrounds sucks, because it’s mostly cool, except for a few annoyances (nothing is perfect). Not that Flash MX isn't great, because it is revolutionary. Not that anything I make with Flash will be any better, because it won't be. But I will like it, as I'm sure that most of them like their own animations, & that's all that matters. Except Stamper. He doesn't like any of his old skool toons, which is crap. Tom Fulp doesn't like his old stuff either because he judges it based on today's fancy Flashes & advanced techniques. Even worse! Mr. Fulp, you are a visionary, start acting like it. Don't be arrogant but give yourself more credit at least. I doubt it will hinder your progress in making even better & better things. You will always be the legendary Tom Gulp in my eyes! But not even the legendary Tom Gulp or even Wade will read what I have to say, but maybe someone else will. And they will be pleased. And it will be good.
