Logging in for the first time in years

David Firth, I have always held your works in a kind of quiet reverence. Even since the tender age of 13 when I first stumbled upon the first Salad Fingers animations I have been completely enamoured by the wonderful, creepy and terrifying atmosphere you have only gotten better at creating. Long gone are the early days of The Friendly Stranger, you've always got a veritable pile of well-made, stressful and ambient pieces to fill in even the harshest of silences with the exact perfect noise for the situation. The world of Salad Fingers may not be overly complex but you flesh it out so much with your characters and your detail that I can't help be amazed that this is pretty much entirety the product of one mind.

I've greatly appreciated your work these last 6 or 7 years. May you animate long into the future, you goddamn twisted genius.

The only thing is the voice, and his face up close. the old animation was PERFECT, and the voice is a little different. Please, for the love of god, make more!

I really need some context

I've been watching these for years, and I still just don't see what you're going for. They're entertaining, sure, in a weird for weird's sake kinda way; and I guess that the bizarre nature of Salad Fingers' psyche could well just be your expression of true delusion and futility. But I always assumed there was something more. Some grand metaphor which would put the entire series into some context; which would make each part of each animation into an actual relevant part of some wider message.

If there isn't one, it doesn't mean that the animations are any less entertaining, but, I won't lie, I'd be somewhat disappointed. Especially as you've shown the capability to use interpretation and metaphor to make funny and ironic cartoons about a wide range of topics, from politics, to television, to dreams, even down to the one you did where you expressed constipation as people struggling to leave a house.

I'm really really hoping that there's some meaning behind this series which I simply haven't been perceptive enough to grasp.
