This is my first flash... it's nothing to brag about really, I just wanted to try my hand at it. I figured animating to a song might be a good idea for starters... and not only was this song ideal because it's relatively short, but it's just an awesomely fun song by itself.

Color? Ha! Color is for the weak. And the talented. XD

Enjoy! ... try, anyway.

[EDIT!] Thanks so much for all the reviews/comments/suggesti ons/critiques!! I'm a bit of a feedback whore, so I completely appreciate anything you have to say!
I want to put a few things here, becuase multiple people brought it up in thier reviews:
~I would put a preloader on it, but I'm kinda dumb and I don't really understand how. I know you can download them right here, but when I try and put it on the animation, I don't know if it works. I'm prolly doing something wrong and if anyone would like to take time out to help me through it, I'd be glad to accept it!
~I understand that the lipsynch is off in quite a few places, but I was too lazy to fix it. I just might though, seeing as how I'm getting relatively good feedback on it!
~I will consider color, and cleaning it up. But I'm a bit of a procrastinator... plus I made this with the 30 DAY TRIAL VERSION!! I'm working on getting the full version though. ^^
~HOLY BALLS OF CRAP I'M ON THE WEIRD AL COLLECTION?!! I'm... I'm not hallucinating, am I? Thanks so much guys!

this is very nice, tho i think color would have been EPIC. none the less 10/10 for u sir/ma'am ;)

real-faker responds:

Well, golly gee! I appreciate it! : D I may add color to it some time in the future.
And it's ma'am. (Thanks for not assuming a random gender. I have a tendency to do that myself, so I appreciate it. XD)

i demand a colored version!

really man, this is pretty good for your first flash. your should color it and smooth up the animation a bit, make the bowling ball fall faster.. unless your time ran up..

real-faker responds:

You know, my time had indeed ran up... but I've got the (COMPLETELY LEGAL AND NOT GANKED FROM A FRIEND) full version now. I haven't been able to get much done with it, but I've considered going back and doing color and fixing some things. It may happen in the future some time. : D Thanks!

Smooth, Elegant, Simple!

I really liked it, and for a first try, it is really good. I should get flash and make some videos too, but I am also a lazy procrastinator. I think that is part of being artistic. Everyone that I know that is involved in some kind of an art, seems to be at least a little lazy and procrastinative. (Not sure if that is a word, but you get what I mean.) Color could enhance it, with the right shading, but this does completely fine without it, so I say, forget about it, unless you get some free time to screw around with it and figure out the shading. Great job, and keep working on your skills. I believe that you will turn out to be one of the better animators on the site.

real-faker responds:

Hahaha, no I totally see what you mean. XD I agree. Thank you very much for your review and compliments! : D

Who needs colour?

Why does everyone complain about it?! Infact, the only reason I gave you a 7 is because of it!!! I love it, it really adds to the style. If you make another one, DO NOT ADD COLOUR!!! The video was pretty cool itself and the animation was good for your first time. Could use some fixing up, but it's a great start. :) The only thing that keeps it from an 8 is that it was the same video as the song in itself, nothing was too original. Also, fix the loop, a preloader would be nice. The song is good, but I don't want to hear it right after I finished it. I suggest editing the movie with an added one, or a replay screen of some sort... Anyway, to sum it up, I enjoyed it and would like to see another. :D

real-faker responds:

Ah, another of the few people who actually like it without color? Thank you. I'm not saying color would or wouldn't be a good or bad thing for it, but I appreciate hearing something different now and then. : D I prrrrrooobably wont add color. At least not for this one... it was just a beginer-ish experiment, so I'm not too concerned. I'm probably going to put a preloader on it eventually when I can figure out how. I'm sure it's a no-brainer, but I haven't bothered to mess with it yet.
Anyway, thank you very very much! I appreciate it!
