If you went to MarsCon, then you might have seen this already. The flash is mine.

Lyrics:

Skippy sank in lava, Corwin turned to slime,
They could both see what was coming but they couldn't pray in time.
Pinky fought a soldier ant that crawled out of his backpack
They were all in love with dyin', they were doing it in NetHack.
Bertha swung Mjollnir like a Valkyrie in the rain
Then she lost her mind in Sokoban; a flayer ate her brain.
They were all in love with dyin', usin' every keyboard function,
As they tried to find the Amulet, somewhere in the dungeon.

I don't mind the text sometimes, the images it shows.
Running from the Ds and Ls, and killing all the Os.
Faded prints and subtle hints and fortune cookie lies.
You never ID all your stuff, until your @ sign dies.

In NetHack, you play an @ symbol in a randomly-generated dungeon, fighting every vicious letter of the alphabet, upper AND lower case. And several very nasty punctuation marks.

Some will die in hot pursuit, fleeing from a shop,
Some will eat a rubber hose, wielded by a Kop.
Some will stand there paralyzed,
Some will go down punchin'
As they try to find the Amulet, somewhere in the dungeon.

I don't mind the text sometimes, the images it shows.
Running from the Ds and Ls, and killing all the Os.
Faded prints and subtle hints and fortune cookie lies.
You never ID all your stuff, until your @ sign dies.

I've played since the eighties! I've seen more dungeons than Torquemada! I've killed more explorers than malaria! I've kicked in more doors than the LAPD and I've opened more chests than a M*A*S*H unit! Crom help me, I have ascended a Tourist.

Arthur tamed a jabberwock but died when it went feral.
Zack wielded a cockatrice, he fell down in a stairwell.
Theseus was butchered when he misspelled 'Elbereth,'
Carmen ate Medusa, yet another stupid death.
Chauncey fought the Oracle, he knew that it was chancey,
Cause you ASCII stupid question and you'll get a stupid ANSI.
They were all in love with dyin', they were perilously plungin'
As they tried to find the Amulet, somewhere in the dungeon.

I don't mind the text sometimes, the images it shows.
Running from the Ds and Ls, and killing all the Os.
Faded prints and subtle hints and fortune cookie lies.
You never ID all your stuff, until your @ sign dies.

You eat the fortune cookie.
There is a scrap of paper inside.
It says, "You will choke to death on a fortune cookie."
Identify your possessions? Y/N

Sonic VS Super Sonic. It's not all I have to say, but best get that out of the way first. Since I've declared that I will not continue unless SEGA makes a decent Sonic game again, every time there's a new game at least three or more people pm me saying it's good only to be met with a shit bucket when I try it. Let's get something straight here. I don't care what you think about any game; I'm the one that has to animate it so I decide the game's quality. Granted the daytime levels were a step in the right direction, but enough with the quick time events and speed bar! Why not just have all that speed as easy access like they use to and that was a section I liked. Don't get me started on the utter crap! For the record, I still love Old-School Sonic. An afternoon on Sonic 2 or watching SatAM is a happy afternoon...unless I die.

Onto other things, you might remember my last flash was a music video called Still Annoyed. Well Rob Balder, the musician behind the song (not me I have no balls) asked me to use it in his concert. It worked so now I'm animating more of his songs. Guess what you're going to be getting a lot of from me in the future? I will try to do other things in between, but for the most part it will just be music videos since I'm lacking the ability to record voices right now. Also I'm learning how to animate drawn in the hope to not be completely dependant on sprites...and updating my starting screen at some point would be nice.

Lastly don't ask me for dates of future release because I never know until I'm ready to release it

Tanks for the memories!

I really can't recall how many times I replayed that game. I think I purposely block out that part of my life. Great effort to remind me that "OMG...that was sooo long ago." Now I understand why I twitch at ampersands.
