Post-Fools Day Thoughts

Ok, at one point I thought rick rolling was cute and funny in its own way, but now it's just fucking stupid. I was rickrolled maybe 20 times yesterday, and it was just annoying. It's even in my school now. Song of the day, played over the loud speaker: Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up.

The internet needs a new meme to steal from 4chan

File-size Limit
When you guys start making an animation or game, do you constantly have the 10 mb file-size limit in the back of your head? Or don't you worry about that all? I'm kind of worried that I'll exceed it, but I'm also not feeling like downgrading my animation too much...

File-size
File size is like counting cards in Blackjack. You just keep a shorthand tally in the back of your head of how many bitmaps, sound effects, and music files you've been using, and you can approximate file size from there.

Don't worry about filesize, Tom can up it if you want.

haha awesome. When I had to find something soft to replace the fluff in the teddy bear, I'm looking for something and I'm like "...wut?". So I look on the desk and there is some tissue. I grab that and start rubbing it on the back of my monitor, on the mouse and on the microphone. I sat there for a while then I saw the cloud.

As in they [Matt Stone and Trey Parker] imitated him, because they always imitate any voice and character. I can bet you that it wasn't actually him, just to tell you.

As if presidente didn't try to rain on the parade enough, you have to jump in. The point is that numa numa showed up on south park, and while most people probably don't know it, it showed up first on newgrounds, so it's like a piece of ng is on south park.

IWP
Anyone think the author is getting too much hate for his work? I am curious what people think about all this. Some of it I actually really enjoy (like the Amityville Toaster episode) but I am always stunned by the amount of hatred over the series.

i wasn't trying to rain on his parade, I was just saying they didn't imitate the voice because they didn't use a voice. I thought that bit was awesome.

I probably wouldn't have watched that if you didn't say it was good, but I'm glad I did. That was actually pretty funny. I dig the jingle at the end.

As for the most of his other stuff, I'm not that into it. As far as little clever stories go, I guess they are alright, but I'd prefer an interesting animation to watch with a shitty story rather than a great story but shitty animation.

People just feel compelled to counterbalance all the rabid fanboys, IMO. I mean, you literally can't leave an honest review for an IWP toon giving less than 7/10 without being flagged as abusive.

I honestly think it's because a lot of NG users think he "sold out". With all the dvd's and shirts and such in Hot Topic and other stores many NG users feel it's too mainstream.

Look at what happened to Green Day. They came back with American Idiot and had a mianstream hit. Then a group of ex-fans appeared that hated their guts because they "sold out". Now I don't know why people care about mainstream or not, but I thought a few of those songs were good.

Green Day didn't sell out because they had a mainstream album. They sold out because they started wearing manscarra and shit and changed their image to look cool. Jeez.

RE: IWP

I think NewGrounds was in another generation when IWP started pumping out his cartoons. I think the whole flash community was. There's more and more amazing content being put out now than there ever was 5 years ago. IWP's place in the spotlight is gone, but I won't hate him for it. Rants will always be popular with some crowds (I notice a lot of goth kids love the shit out of Neurotically Yours), so he'll never go away.

I'm pretty indifferent. I usually won't watch it if I have the choice, though.

I am curious what people think about all this. Some of it I actually really enjoy (like the Amityville Toaster episode) but I am always stunned by the amount of hatred over the series.

Some of it's good, but it's not new...it's old, he's done it and done it and done it to death. Some of the dialog is interesting, some of it is true, and some of it is funny, but the characters are sooooooo old, so what's interesting about that. I mean it has two characters, you think he could add some other characters to keep it interesting, or maybe redraw something for once, get a new loader, present it differently, he could do things with it, but it appears to me that he doesn't care about it... people like it the same old old old way it is, and I guess his motivation isn't creativity. It's just not interesting to eat oatmeal every single day, even if it tastes alright.

Exporting to Quicktime

For most of my Flash Projects at school I'm required to export them as Quicktime files rather than .swfs. Don't ask me why, but that's what the teach wants. I've been having a lot of problems getting my Flash movies to run smoothly and not get pixelated when viewing the export file. I have the highest quality settings, but some of it still looks off.

It's hard to explain, but lets say I tween a ball across the screen. Sometimes, some bits of the ball graphic will be left behind for a second and then they will disappear. It's bizarre. Any help?
