Hey man!

Didn't recognize you because of your name change. It's great to hear from you!

If you'd like to rejoin, let me know which department(s) interest you and why you'd be a good member for the NGDD. Shouldn't be too hard. ;-)

I don't think we can post abusive reviews here. It follows along the same reasons why Rage's Abusive Review thread was locked. As for alerting members of stolen flash submissions, I don't believe there's a problem with that but you may want to ask Fro (Portal Dept. Leader) to verify.

Indeed all holidays are commercialized, especially Christmas. In other news, I had picked up Black Ops yesterday. Epic, to say the least.

Christmas is, by far, the worst of the commercialized holidays. Linus was right.

Halloween is starting to get really bad, with expensive costumes and whatnot. And then there's "Sweetest Day," a rip off of Valentine's Day just half a year later on. Do they really need to insult me from being single TWICE a year?

Thanksgiving is better by far. Sure, you have to buy food, but it's a tradition. It's like having a losing Lions team. You can't have it any other way.

Yeah I honestly feel the same way. But there is still a few clubs I post in but still not as much as I used to. But I do keep looking and find something intresting every once in a while.

Yea nothing better than an old man created by Coca-Cola. At least the americanized version. LOL

The polar bears are what crack me up. No significance to Christmas whatsoever, but it wouldn't be right if there wasn't Coca-Cola commercials with the damn polar bears in them.

So I'm going on a date with this girl I just met on Saturday who was with a guy for 4 years until they broke up last month. They were gonna get married and everything. Gonna be interesting to see how she's handling it. I'm betting we get to the movie and she just randomly starts bawling. Lets hope she's taking it well. :p
It's weird you mention this, I have one girl friend who just got out of a similar relationship 3 weeks ago, and two other girl friends who just got dumped after almost 4 years as well this week. This is an odd time of the year.

That's crazy. I guess we're going to watch the new jackass movie. I was texting her earlier asking how she was handling everything and she told me we could just talk about it when we hung out. I don't like it because she's so right. Every time I text something important, it always ends up getting taken the wrong way. She knows how to make a relationship work (obviously, she was in one for 4 years), and that's scary. Not gonna be any crazy stunts that break us up like I'm used to from the psycho girls I've been with. Haha.

I on the other hand have just met this gorgeous girl who makes me very happy, something I haven't felt in at least 6 months.

Good deal man. What's her story?

True, those bears have become a cultural icon. It's quite a marketing achievement on the part of Coca-Cola.

Sounds like a handful. I don't know how much being in a relationship for 4 years means you can make a relationship work since they ended up breaking up. I was in a relationship for 3 years, engaged, and I have no idea how to make relationships work IMHO.

I agree though, stay away from the psycho crazy girls.

I actually met her at the Marine Corps Ball, she was someone else's date, but not really date just a friend thing, so we talked, flirted and clicked got her number and started talking and hanging out. She's got great personality, super quirky and positive, and can be a total dork, which is something I love. Plus it doesn't hurt that she's pretty hot lol.

I am way to young to worry about girl friends. I am looking forward to Christmas. For obvious reasons really the snow and presents and usually family if they choose not to be jerks on Christmas that is.

General forum is spammed up like there's no tormorrow right now, so I'm taking refuge in Clubs & Crews. How's about a report?

General forum was great until the Poozy bandwagon started, then the shit hit the fan. I'm enjoying my stay here, watching the fireworks. Where's BigBadRon when we need him?

Portal: Can't complain. A few stolen flashes that have been taken care of. I suggest Achievement Unlocked 2, it's fun for a few minutes and gives you a LOT of medals. I got at least 900 points off of it. Lot of good games, not a lot of good movies.

Personally, I've been busy with school, and it is only getting worse this weekend. Gotta stay active and disciplined.

Oh man I watched that whole shipwreck. From start to end. Most people complained about Poozy for banning them for no reasons and getting butt hurt about it. So I was a fiasco to say the least. In the end Poozy is still a mod using his ban hammer.

I don't know who he is....Care to explain?

BigBadRon is one of the old-time BBS mods, the Poozy of his day, so to say. Never capitalized anything unless it was all-caps. Pretty funny guy actually, I miss him. I have no idea when he was demodded.

Sadly I can't be arsed to play that game. I should get to it at the weekend.

You play it for ten seconds and you've got five medals. That's how fast it is. I've never seen anything like it.

At one point, I counted 21 "User is Online" threads.

That, and adding cocaine to soft drinks. Marketing genius up until the government got wise. "And I would've gotten away with it too if it weren't for you meddling congressmen."

Sounds like a handful. I don't know how much being in a relationship for 4 years means you can make a relationship work since they ended up breaking up. I was in a relationship for 3 years, engaged, and I have no idea how to make relationships work IMHO.

Well this dude cheated on her and sounds like an asshole (haven't exactly heard his side of the story though), and I think if she was willing to do what it took to make a relationship work with a guy that pissed her off, then she'll probably try and make this work, regardless of how shit goes. That could be a bad thing, or a really amazing thing. Guess time will tell.


I agree though, stay away from the psycho crazy girls.

But they party naked!

The hotness always gives them the little extra edge doesn't it? Haha. That's cool man. Those dorky girls are always fun to be around, provided that they look cute when they're doing it. I dated this girl in high school who always used to baby talk her dog in this annoying ass voice, and every time she did it, I wanted to tackle her and darce choke her into submission.

General sure has become a mess recently. Nonetheless, it is still quite entertaining.

Decent Top 5 this week in the Audio Portal. It's good to see a variety of music genres instead of the usual five trance / techno submissions. Good music, good music.

Sorry about my absence as of recent everyone. I'm finishing up my last couple of weeks of college and the final grind is generally the worst. I took a look at the garbage going on with Poozy and general and everything and that's just a solid reminder to me as to why I spend no time there anymore hahaha.

I'll have time to post a bit more later, however, for right now I need to continue writing a paper. Hope all is well with everyone.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

It's that time of the year! It's Christmas! You can already find the ads on TV and hear the music on the radio. While I always find them enjoyable, I believe they should wait until the actual month to start.

Good stuff in this year's Treasure Hunt. It will take a lot of time and effort to go through each of the finalists, but I will!

There's no reason they should start this early, other than to bug the shit out of consumers. I think the appropriate time to start advertising Christmas is after Thanksgiving.

I don't know how the admins do it. There were hundreds of flashes in this year's Treasure Hunt. It was insane.

I very much agree with this, the christmas ads are always pushing to be earlier every year it seems like. Such a ridiculously material world we live in. Gotta love hyperreality...

Yea well, since it is their full time job to run this website, they can't really complain. It's not that bad of a life to run a website that's about flash movies and games lol.

Well at least to those of us who live in the U.S. lol. Canada has their thanksgiving in October and it's not as celebrated as it is here, and other countries, well, I don't think they have a thanksgiving holiday. Mine was filled with Turkey, potatoes, desserts, and plenty of family (17 of us this year).

I hate Black Friday, I hate the concept, I hate the fact that the deals are actually not that good compared to how crazy people get about it. Seriously, people die for this shit every year.... Ridiculous.

I had less people over. Maybe 9 people were over here. But then again my family isn't that big.

Trampling. Honestly, I remember a time when "Black Friday" was not thrown around, when people were not COMPLETELY INSANE. It is getting more and more commercialized every year, in fact, I actually heard Christmas music right after Halloween.

This so-called "Black Friday" is going to be black not because of shopping, but because I have two final reports I have completely slacked off on. I absolutely must bet them done.

How about that portal? I have seen that fucking Chocolate Brickbreak game so many times. It comes with Games Factory 2, so people add the slightest adjustment and then submit it. The ones I've seen are unplayable; it moves too fast. Besides, it comes with GF2, so it's not their work.

There's been a lot of stolen flashes lately. Keep an eye out.

Hope you folks have had a good Thanksgiving.

I never understood this Black Friday craze. Although the deals can be quite good, I honestly don't get the insanity it creates among people. I have heard accounts of people dying during this event, in particular a Wal-Mart door greeter in Long Island, NY. As soon as he had opened the door the crazed horde trampled the man to death.

Not much to report in the forums besides the NGBBS Awards going on in General.

In other news, even more stuff in the Treasure Hunt! Definitely worth checking out if you haven't done so already.

Treasure Hunt is awesome. I spent several hours just playing flashes because of it. Definite worth seeing the list if you want something fun to do with your spare time.

Sorry for my absence everyone. I recently had surgery on my abdomen that has left me completely crippled. The only positive is that I can now lay around and use the computer all day without doing homework. I'm excused from class for about 2 weeks in my last semester of college (SWEET!).

In other news I'm hoping to see the NGDD get off the ground soon and up and running officially. Mr. Dark, do we need to have an MSN conversation soon?


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

General chat isn't what it used to be back in the day. I feel like I've hit a wall in trying to have a discussion with people on the BBS. People are almost just posting for the statistic of post count rather than conversation. Today I've tried endlessly to start a decent conversation or even some arguments on the BBS and it's like I've hit a wall. No one responds.

I purposely would disagree with a topic and someone would post in the topic a one-line dumb comment and never look in the thread again. In my opinion this is an issue. Granted on Newgrounds we have the ability to make dumb comments, but occasionally I'd like to have a semi-intelligent conversation (outside of the politics section or even the C&C section). I don't know what it is anymore. I remember the General section being a lot different in the past.

Has anyone been encountering the same issues? Maybe had similar issues? Or maybe I'm just imagining everything? Hahah I don't even know.

Most people in the general are stat-whores that are looking for post counts, so they don't waste their time with actual meaningful discussions, it's kind of like a dump and run game. I had a good discussion going today in a thread I commented in about personal choice, go check it out.

Yea, it just really is a sort of culture in that section. People are too lazy to be semi-intelligent. You have to remember this forum is populated with young people. Maturity and intelligence is generally lacking.

I have, that's why I usually stay clear of that forum completely. Wi/Ht feels more rewarding, and C&C more fun. Politics I've gotten into once or twice, but sometimes I feel like the regs there feel like there some sort of elitist society, it kind of irks me.

General is better now than it was at some times in the past, so I can tolerate it. Then again, my memory is kind of fuzzy from my large inactivity period in 2009. General does provide a lot of entertainment sometimes, though.

I really enjoy Clubs & Crews, even though the threads move slowly. The discussion is just much better. I regularly visit Wi/Ht? but I lurk there more than I post.

Politics was the first forum I ever posted in (although it was a one-liner) but the place is so dead. I'd love to see more discussion there. I rarely post there, it's more of a lurker's forum.

Isn't that really common these days? I swear, there must be more statwhores now than any other time I can remember. They're everywhere on the site.

And as for the portal... Oh, it's been a fun day. Had my browser crashed from a couple malware flashes, but other than that, a normal day. Although those "safe meatspin" flashes are damn annoying. So you took a picture of a steak and made it spin to "You Spin Me Right Round," Haha that is so funny. I could make a better animation in Basic.

In other news....
