Haven't done anything in a while...
So I'm getting a bit rusty needless to say...

First off let me say this flash isn't meant to be offensive but inspiring.
Its meaning is that we should stop obeying and just do your own thing.
People are influenced by so many factors that they forget to follow there hearts and stop the hate.
You shouldn't believe everything you are told.

Anyways with that being said... I hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave KIND comments.
If you want to argue and complain, comment somewhere else.
Thanks

Witty, moving, and catchy (the song)

There's nothing offensive in your flash as well. It is an excellent music video for a great song (never heard of Cake before, but I might check out their stuff now). It doesn't strike me as a criticism of Christianity or belief in God at all, but rather a criticism of how religion has, is, and sadly will be used to control people and justify heinous acts.

I chuckled at the Democratic Party emblem juxtaposed with the logo for Tyson Foods. Both are equivalent in value, except that the latter fills my stomach with crappy food, the former tries to fill my head with crappy ideas. (The other party is just as bad.)

Your flash is inspiring and is moving without being depressing or moody. Belief in God should never be a justification for violence, nor should it ever be forced upon people, for that defeats the whole idea of 'belief.' Those who find this animation offensive should really evaluate their religious beliefs, and think about what Christ's message was.

Couldn't have said it better!!! Exactly what i was going for... I'm guessing you have seen the documentary FOOD Inc.
Since you know Tyson is one of the lead food industry of crappy food... to say it bluntly...
Anyways,
Thanks for the review!!!

Inspiring to some...

to others not so much. I do feel a bit confused about this video, Your saying that religion is bad and america is easily corrupted but i think Christianity is a beautiful religion (coming from an Atheist) and as an American i feel a bit offended, although i do believe the American government can be a bit corrupt. I would love to hear more from you and what you think about your video. remember, Life is beautiful. People are beautiful, and this world is beautiful.


cheshirecat1582 responds:

I agree... life, people and the world is a beautiful thing... but there are parts of it that are horrible. People tend to either look past or ignore that fact. Religion is a good concept (in theory) and does bring out the "good" nature of most people. But its the bad parts that put ideas into peoples heads that i disagree with.

I'm Atheist/Agnostic Or what ever you want to call it. But i'm not so much so that i want people to stop believing in what they want to believe in just to prove my point... (then I would be just as corrupt as anyone else who blindly follows with out questioning the real reason behind the leaders...)

I believe if people would just stop believing in everything they where told and start questioning there would be allot less war and anger towards man kind. But thats also saying that religion can also have a good side... the religions (I use the term "religion" loosely) that say love everyone no matter their beliefs and that help the average junky off the street, Those are the ones We should stand behind...

But that was only half the point of my animation... the other half which isn't under debate is the government, and corporations that insist on showing you commercials and subliminally pushing you to buy the newest and best product... we are all victims of that... not only my self but everyone around us, its our new way of survival... which is kinda sad when you really think of it... but what are you going to do? stand up? are you ready for that? are we even able to? I don't know, we have evolved to this... can you live with out Your Soda? Your car? Your shampoo? Your McDonalds? even your tampons? We just dont have the skills any more to live on your own... we are slowly losing the ability to survive on your own... No I take that back we have lost the ability to live on our own... Unless you are one of those people off the grid and then you wouldn't be viewing this animation... So really I'm only talking to the people who can access the internet... The only thing we can do is help out when and where we can... volunteer at the homeless shelter, volunteer at an elderly home... Help some orphans... open a door for someone you dont know... help an old lady crross the street... only do what you are capable of doing, then go back to your corporate ways... Just break free from your self absorbed world and the need for money and greed once in a while and it will be a start to turn man kind around again...
shhhoooo
Thats was a long response... Anyways.... I not sure how much that made since... so dont pick it too much apart... My promise intentions are good...
Thank you for your review...
