Friendship is Autism
Seriously it's getting to be too much.
"My Little Sky Craft" is an amalgamation of everything that has debuted over the past half year. Well, maybe not, but it covers a wide arc. Being that the collection sections devoted to each one must have reached the "Abyssal" stage, I suppose it's fine to complain about the sheer pervasiveness of cartoons about Skyrim, My Little Pony, Minecraft, or Sonic. Just to be fair, I would tack on Stick Figures, Madness, and anything that belongs in Dumping Grounds to prevent strings of crap submissions flung the Portal's way. Okay? These aren't THAT great, or warrant such exposure. So, Croire decided to deal a low blow against all four. I just wish he was aiming better; you'd think fish in a barrel would be easier to shoot.
This cartoon examines the daily effort pulled into tributes and parodies of Skyrim, Minecraft, My Little Pony, and Sonic, and then postulates when we're ever going to see original content. Sounds like a viable piece of propaganda, an appropriate kick-in-the-head for authors to reconsider the excess of parodies and tributes and just try something different for a change. Now, "My Little Sky Craft" captivated my nods and laughs at first, but then it completely lost me when it made a paltry snipe at autism; it insinuates "that crowd" is responsible, or is an unadulterated major contributor.
Of course, non-participation from disgruntled viewers is responsible. Not bothering to submit original material or have the brains to vote for something different come monthly voting time is what causes these cartoons to get such exposure. It has always been this way because Newgrounds enjoys a good parody, and parodies are under fair use as well. It's safe to pick on popular media and it gets you fives in the process.
It's also safe to complain about minorities and developmental disabilities, because they don't have the capability to fight back. That's right: it is easier to judge by the number of developmental disorders one has than by the content of their soul and character. If you are considered autistic, then that puts you in the lowest bracket in terms of the Newgrounds creative community, alongside crews and stick movies. And there's little you can say about it, because now you're just part of the problem--it's very source, in fact--so the only place you have if you ever come around here is to go right back the way you came, only you have to ride in the back of the short bus.
This cartoon is too much.
Let's be honest: this is just a whiny protest soapbox. Also, I'm surprised nobody blew the whistle for administrative review for being hate-driven or stereotyping, which is something that can be done, see. It's too bad, since everything else is pretty good. There are no glaring technical issues or pacing problems. It's short, sweet, direct, poignant, and almost thought-provoking. So, if Croire stepped back and considered whether or not he was stepping on a specific group's shoes, I might be more inclined to embrace the general supposition that these cartoons based on niche media should be reeled in and set aside for something a little more original. I would not object.
Instead, he fired at people with Asperger's Syndrome like they're responsible, so I say, "Fuck this, submit whatever the fuck you want!" Remember: this is Newgrounds, "Everything by Everyone."
Hey there friend,
I don't suggest that people with Aspergers syndrome are responsible for all of this, I merely imply that everyone that plays minecraft is an aspie. No offense but an internet cartoon shouldn't effect you as much as this review seems to reveal. i'm sorry you're so sensitive buddy
Funny 'n clever, but really short (don't worry the length isn't affecting the rating) Funny subject and the animation was a bit cheesy, but it added to the comic value of the vid. the voices were good though a lil quite, (not affecting the rating either cause you could always up the sound and re-upload it) I lawd
sadly this is newgrounds right now.
