UPDATE: Hello from the front page! If you were expecting an animation, surprise, this is a podcast! Feel free to save this in your memory to listen later, either here or wherever you get your podcasts. Enjoy!

It's a very special day. On this very day ten years ago, willKMR first created his Newgrounds account. To celebrate, he's taking his pal PsychoGoldfish and traveling back in time(!) to visit the Newgrounds he first joined. Back in 2009, everything was borders, tiny text and IRC chats - and it was beautiful.

And against all odds, GoodL and littlbox of ACoupleOfCrickets are here too. It's OPERATION 2009!

Art... by Snackers? In a podcast? How is this possible? O_o That song was great btw.

And what a blast to the past this was! I miss that layout but... it is starting to look a bit thin now, looking back. Didn't think I'd ever see a day when the new one would actually look slicker, but times really do change. Love the concept as much as the production of this, score and total immersion, twas a fun ride to jump along in. Belated though my partaking may be. Gonna bookmark and dig through that nostalgia list too. Maybe some things I missed. Thanks PG! And ACOCK for entertaining company, as always! Also: supporting that Wayback on a yearly basis lately. The world would be sooo different without them.

I must say though, if you're looking for the real heyday of NG y'all better jump back to 2007. ;) That was when it was really at it's peak I feel. New users were storming the place. The redesign had just happened. Flash was more popular than ever. So much was going on. But maybe my memory's biased.

Congrats on the 10, and looking forward to the 20th! Maybe y'all can jump back and reminisce on 2019 then. :P


Love this episode! Having to go back to the old archive of newgrounds was just flowing with nostalgia of when I was a wee little lad discovering the things back in the day. Looking forward to the next episode!
