I just went through and added a number of contributors to the list so they get headlines. Of course, they have to actually accept the invitation first.

There were some whose user name has either changed or been deleted (didn't show up no matter what I tried), so if any of the people who contributed don't get an invite, pm me and I'll see what i can do.

WOO! Daily, Weekly and Front Page! Sweet!
Sometime in July -- I believe -- -KJDunwoody- started a BBS post seeking authors to make parts for a collab based on Gary Jules' "Mad World". Yes we know the song was originally done by Tears for Fears, but we used Gary Jules version because that's what KJ picked.

Several people responded, and the response was mixed -- people were either excited to be involved for love of the movie Donnie Darko, or felt obligated to flame the collab because the author didn't have a 3.00+ BA.

In late August I came onboard with this collab -- a full month into production. -KJDunwoody- had gotten it started, but was floundering a bit -- some authors were flaking out and others were turning out abject rejects. Needless to say several artists from NG leaped in and saved what was looking to be a very interesting project. I contributed quite a lot of time to this project -- far more than I had expected -- and I'm happy to say it's finally done.

There are 25 people that should be mentioned here, they are as follows (in order of appearance in the collab):

Helbereth (I hate repeating my name here...)
Andie Ciambotti
KJDunwoody (The original creator)

There are also several people who I should mention. Numerous people submitted clips for the collab, but were either rejected or beaten out by other parts -- or just came in too late. To all those people, I apologize for lacking the KB to make an outtakes section.

Special thanks go to BlackMarketKraig, FoXcatO, ReNaeNae, Joem and Threetrees -- the early versions of your clips are what hooked me on this collab in the first place.

Well if you're still reading (I doubt it), enjoy the collab! Check the authors section for some author details and URL links to various author-supported sites.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great atmosphere with a great song

But some of the artists in the collab really ruin the mood and atmosphere. For example, Jedi-Hampster. Anime style chibi giving someone a birthday present just because the lyrics say "happy birthday"? Ruined a lot of the experience. But there were still many other animators that really helped the atmosphere. Helbereth, Andie Ciambotti, FoxCatO, BlackMarketKraig, etc etc.

Forgive me, but I can't read that. Is there a question in there somewhere?
