Unbelievable!

What the heck am I doing on the front page?!

**********************

DIALOGUE:

I don't know how many days I have left.
What makes me think I'll even live another hour?
Why even bother living this life only to lose it all.
Chasing after the f****** wind.

I could live to all the good moral standards of my culture
but I'd die just the same as the people with the worst moral standards.
I think I'd be happier being an immoral person, though I know it's a lie.

My heart reeks corruption.
Following my desires I'd never want to work,
never help people,
unless I get something out of it of corse
and just be a blood sucking leech on everyone around me but worse.
Destroying the very things that sustain me.

_____instrumental_____

I don't want to hurt people
but if I don't, I'll hurt myself.
Either way I'm going to cause destruction and death.
So wouldn't it be better for only one person to die than many.

Sure, they'll be sad, but they will find a way to live without me, right?
What am I thinking! they are no different than me!
Then we should all, just, die.

_____instrumental_____

stop.

You speek rightly. You do deserve death
You have thought nothing but the evils of your wicked heart since the day of your creation.
You could never be pleasing to God.

But do you think God didn't know that?
You think God made you just to bring you pain?

Know this, you will always have problems in this life
but hear me correctly when I say this statement.

your corruption is your fault.
your corruption is your fault.
Not because you could chose not to be corrupt,
but because you have not given up on yourself.

You run like a mouse on a wheel trying to get away,
no trying to walk on water,
no trying to fly with your arms.
You try and try and try, to do something you can never do.
but you were never meant to.
you need only to seek the one who gives freely.

I know your impatient,
you could be watching tv or doing something to amuse your mind.

But when you realise the truth, that you have nothing,

Look to God, not yourself.
Because He is our only real foundation in this life.
You will go to hell in your own strength.

Please, realise God's love for you,
despite all your corruption
and may His love, change you

Beautiful work !

Usually i don't comment on animations to much, i don't see why i don't do it more so, but i felt it was necessary to do so on this one.
This is a beautiful piece of work, i was absolutely captivated by it. Its these sorts of animations that give me that extra kick and leave me with a smile knowing that something quite meaningful and creative can still be produced among all the crappy comedy flash's created these days.

What i admire the most about this video is your msg, you obviously hold this message dear to you or you believe these words are rather special to you, for you to share this msg with other people and in a creative and beautiful way is a very special thing, and i congratulate you for doing such an excellent job.

So regardless of all the negative reviews you receive, banish them, you did a brilliant job and you should feel proud of your achievement. When i posted my first flash animation i received alot of mixed reviews, getting it called " emo " and so fourth, haters are always going to hate. But honestly, who gives a flying donkey crap.
At any rate excellent flash, it was engaging to watch, visuals were beautiful, the audio was nice and clear and could be understood. loved it !!

Interesting

You don't see this kind of thing on Newgrounds often, so it's nice to see something a little deep and different like this.Your animation was smooth and awesome, the music was fitting and the thoughts you had were seriously something, it made a good point.I just don't agree with everything you said here.The one thing I really didn't like is that it's just made a bit too sad, which I get was probably the point, but you could have made it not as emo.I hope this was a decent review and that it'll help you improve if you even read this.(but don't think I thought this was bad or anything it just wasn't for a 10...sorry)

Some interesting thoughts...

I don't agree with your views, but I can still take some of what you said to find my own awnsers. Thank you and if there is a next time, please don't do those annoying symbalisms and music. It needs to be more serious, we're not all emo or heavy metal enthusiasts or whatever it is...


nahtanojmal responds:

:D Thanks for your honesty

To each his own.

My view point on life differs from yours, and I disagree with most of the statements made. I could go on and make arguments about what I perceive as flaws in your logic, but that's not the point of these reviews.

Even if the character reaches a different conclusion, his plight is a universal one and the despair and hope this is meant to evoke comes right through. At points it seems somewhat... melodramatic or cliche, but it does so in a touching and heartfelt way. The music does well in supporting the tone of the video as it goes on and the imagery is vivid and bold. It'd be a ten, but the art style was a bit too rough for my liking. Still, it really is quite beautiful.

I'm no fan of missionaries, but if that's your belief I won't fault you on it. I respect the balls it takes to post such a religious piece in a place so populated by us godless heathens ;)
