WARNING: This animation is 30 MINUTES LONG. Be prepared for this.

That said, it is my personal belief that it is worth it.

A lonely, childlike moon keeps a diary of his depression, boredom, and recurring nightmares. His daily realities seem to be based on dream logic: clouds with bovine personalities, teeth with eyes and mailmen who fly in balloons. He writes about his very few friends, an invisible person, a pack of wolves, and a boy who lives in space on a garbage pile, protecting the earth from debris. The moon mopes along his 'horrible as usual' orbit, as the invisible one suffers with his own surreal identity crisis while desperately trying to reach out to the moon. Moon Diary is 7 days through the eyes of this gentle sky rock.

Based on characters and comics by Erin Tanner with animation by Curtis Randolph and Charlie Daugherty; Moon Diary (2010) creates a world with a simple, bright surface on an enigmatic, dark and maze-like core.

If you want "pause" and "chapter select," this animation is also up on YouTube. Just search for "Moon Diary" and scroll past all the Sailor Moon garbage. :)

Music by June Madrona. Check out the bicycle records store to buy June Madrona albums, or the Moon Diary DVD, which includes bonus content!

This. THIS is the qualtity of a movie that i come here for, a verry nice story with really good animation and drawings. Not to mention that it kinda makes one think. The sheer length of it alone is impressive, AND you managed to make it into somehting enjoyable. Kudos to you.

I'm Glad i came back

I'm an xold remnant of reviews of newgrounds past, i've always looked for issues and at the same time things to make up for issues when it comes to flashes, this flash is quite exceptional because it brings to mind one thing.
This flash is exactly how it should be, and i dont believe anyone would dare change it if they could, i've always been a hardass at reviews and i was under the impression i wouldnt come back to anything but a few 8s maybe some nines and alot of vague 0s anyway im glad i could hear and see this story that you kindly brought to us. For that, thank you, and as a token of my gratitude and im sure from many others here is my rare 10 out of 10, 5 out of 5 rateing

only one thing was missing,

a scene selection would have been nice just so I could watch it in parts, but I stuck around for the whole thing and it was very cool

hahaha, well, you could buy the DVD, as it has a chapter selection menu!
(also, if you right click and press play during the any of the 7 days, it will skip to the next one. a little hack I use while reviewing it sometimes...)
