Today is Friday so we'll have some Follow Friday fun as well!

This movie made my morning:

Click the heart on CynicConn's userpage to follow him and be notified the next time he uploads something crazy.

joninetynine signed up this week and contributed some point and click adventures with a unique visual style:

Follow him if you'd like to know what else he's up to!

Mnemusyne made a fun little hack 'n slash, so follow him if you want more charming stuff like this:

Katie Lawter created some great art:

She previously made the front page with a movie, The Two Princesses:

Follow Katie if you're a fan!

CowardlyLion made some chill dubstep:

Did you know if you want to find chill dubstep, you can use our new tag filter within the dubstep genre? Go to the Audio Portal, expand the Electronic category on the left, click Dubstep, then below the category box type "chill" into the "Filter by Tags" box. The result will be this.

Try it with whatever tags and genres you like!

You can also do this with games and movies. For example, Here are all Adventure Horror games of all time, sorted by score.

Our system for browsing, sorting and filtering genres is impressive, take some time this weekend to familiarize yourself with it!

@Rugburnchannel should upload more stuff to Newgrounds under their label.
It would be super sweet and junk.

I uploaded a shape movie I made several years ago! Because no one ever asked for such things.... and we are sharing what we've been up to right? That is what we do here? I've lost the meaning of what I was doing.... HI TOM!

Is "Best New Games and Movies" new? Are those ones that don't show up in the top 5-10, or just the most recent high(ish) scoring submissions out of the portal?

if that's not new, wtf have I been doing

Congrats to the winners.
Also I was wondering when you were going to do the Follow Friday stuff again. I don't remember seeing it last week or the week before that....

They were there before with two notable differences (we jiggled that stuff around a bit over the past couple of days):

1. They were in list format (so just plain text links)
2. There was nothing there to prevent them including any of the daily winners. Now that list only contains stuff that hasn't currently been picked as a daily winner.

Are you finding that stuff a bit more eye-catching?

Response to Best of August 2013 & Follow Friday 2013-09-13 19:27:56


Wow, the top five movies are all based on original material, I think this is the first time that's happened in 2013! Great month overall. nice to see Dave's NATA entry in the top 5 and Sif's entry not far after that.

Blown Minded was amazing as well, glad it got included.

Yes, definitely, though it's pretty low on the page. The only reason I noticed it was because I was looking at the daily message. It would be neat if we could move those pods around too.

like to the right of the featured content and now I'm asking for too much

Wow, second is much higher than I thought Calcium Wrath would place. Congrats to the Boobies.

Anyone notice you get an internal server error, when you try and vote on anything from the Art portal? Bloody annoying, that.


Vault 101 I have many old and deleted Flash submissions, PM me the filename, maybe I got it.

Yeah, that might be interesting... or maybe even dismiss/promote pods you don't or do want. We should probably do that for the parts on the right of the page as well.

I really enjoyed River city Ridiculous as well. The animation is so incredibly sloppy that it just... adds to the whole thing :D Even the trash can sound effect being nothing more than a crinkly soda can was great. Even as silly as it is, I know a ton of work went into it; I think it deserves a better score than it got. Ah well.

I see you reviewed it as well! Crazy plot, crazy animation and a dern nice frame rate! Glad Tom spotted such a Newgroundsian gem! Works like this used to be commonplace here, as were the one-hit wonders, who published and were never heard from again :( The author's YouTube statement was quite succinct.... gotta love the quiet (creative) ones!

I honesly wasn't expecting that. I guess nudity can be highbrow entertainment!

I specifically listed the top 25 instead of top 20 because of Blown Minded. It should have ranked higher IMO.

Hey Tom, you recently stated Congress should eat their own dog food, right? Well, the full moon's rising, and the hounds are tearing it up. I don't think it was this unruly, even when the Republicans tried to impeach Clinton, or refused to fund the country....
