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. :)

Longest flash I ever saw

Also the only flash I've seen that gave credits for all the sound FX used.
I thought the story was pretty bland until the teeth decaying part, then it started taking off. I had a good laugh at the part where he's playing with the boat and the whale, and the Invisible Boy's 'powerwalk' was priceless. The animation wasn't really 'extraordinary' until the end where the moon was breaking apart. This is a nice change of pace for newgrounds, where video game parodies and crudely drawn experiments with lack of good humor are all to prevalent.

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...)

Long and boring

I would give it a 1/10 for the fact that it sucks and the story was weird, i just lost 20 min. of my life... gave it a 9/10 out of respect and for the effort ,the next one shouldn't be so vague.
