November

We started the month by moving our servers to Philly!

More great things were soon to come this month, such as the first of several "NG Jams", one of the forefathers of the modern NG Collab.

We had a taste of everything NG this month: Kol-Belov's PUSTOTA was an artistic masterpiece, winning many hardcore fans. Dan Malo's touching film, "Ready's Voyage", received praise from the disabled community.

The Paris Hilton sex tape was hot in the news and The Walrus was right there with a biting spoof on the subject. The sex & violence combo was complete with the submission of Divine Intervention, which remains one of my favorite games on the site.

Finally, Rooftop Skater proved that PsychoGoldfish is both a talented programmer AND artist, having drawn the characters for EntropicOrder's sequel to one of the most popular games on NG.

December

Things were really looking up for Newgrounds by the end of the year and I outlined some goals for 2004.

We were introduced for the first time to Xombie, which would go on to become one of the most beloved series on the site and enter production as a feature length film.

Granfaloon's "The Real Legend of Zelda" was one of our better Zelda spoofs to date and "The Classroom" introduced some cool line-of-site gameplay mechanics that would prove consistently popular in later sequels.

Too Much Spare Time graced us with another great Christmas film and we ended the year with our best Christmas collection yet.
