A riot grrrl goes on an acid trip or something.

The song in this movie is "Strawberry Julius" by Bikini Kill.

I drew all the scanned artwork.

For those who don't know, riot grrrl is an indie/punk feminist movement that reached its height in the 1990s, but continues to exert influence over alternative cultures.

Update: It's incomplete because that's punk!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

My Review

I enjoyed all of your scanned artwork. I only wish there had been more artwork to go with the song, and perhaps a more coherent presentation. However, I rather enjoyed it.

"Punk" does not equal "not trying."

Okay, so you start off with one drawing of a girl, which is okay. But then you barely move any part of her at all. That's cheap. And sad. I don't know a lot about the whole Riot Grrrl movement, but I'm guessing punk dancers in a mosh pit or music video probably jump around a little bit whne doing their thing.

The middle of the video seemed more promising, with lots of crazy imagery. Sure, it was mostly simple motion tweening, but it showed some inspiration, and presumably it took some effort to draw all that stuff. (I'm assuming you drew it on paper and scanned it, and not that you merely scanned a CD jacket or downloaded those sketches from the band's website.)

You even managed to work the feminist angle in there with the thing sprouting from the man's neck that looked like it was gonna be another flower, but then it turned out to be a fetus. I thought that was pretty deep, for a music video. Kinda metaphorical.

But then you had to go and ruin it the way Newgrounds noobs always do, by quitting 1/3 of the way through the song. What the fuck is wrong with you? Did you suddenly run out of angst? This music video was a good idea, implemented with challenging imagery, but then you fucking quit. Nobody likes a fucking quitter. Finish the damn thing, you fucking loser.

When's the last time you saw a punk video where a bunch of kids at the mall rose up, cast off the shackles of the man, smashed up their jobs, and then took to the streets to stop the big CEO's monolithic corporate office, only to get bored halfway there and disperse peacefully? Because that's what you did by quitting this project before it was finished. You went "FUCK THE MAN! Ehhh, you know what, never mind."

You can do better. Now get off your ass and finish it! :D

McGovern responds:

I will finish it. I just started flash animation, like, two days ago.
