This was a project for my flash course that I came up with. Yes I know it's cut short (the song has an awesome next verse), but it had to be done pretty fast and I wanted it to be a full animation so here you go. I know this could look a hell of a lot better but I was short on time. I'll make sure to make something more impressive next time ;)

Hope you all enjoy!

"Hardware Store" by the awesome Weird Al Yankovic


Thanks very much for the great reviews guys! I'm surprised my first flash submission managed to get an award ;w; and it reached 3.95 at one point too! Awesomeness! Thanks again. I'll make sure to come up with something again as soon as I can. Peace out.

Pretty good

I love Weird Al, and I enjoyed your interpretation of this song. Unfortunately, I couldn't help but compare it to the version already on this site, and yours falls short of what I was expecting after having seen that. I don't know the url, but it's in the Weird Al collection. You could take some pointers from the creator of that one. Plus, as everyone else has said, you didn't use the whole song, though you wouldn't really notice unless you'd heard it before (it was smoothly cut, I say). xD

"(it was smoothly cut, I say)"

HA. I'm glad you noticed. I spent longer trying to get the sound edited right than you'd think. Cause I had the full song imported, then I lost the mp3 file, and had to download it again to edit out the last verse, but the start timing was DIFFERENT (god damnit). So what you hear is actually one song, then another overlapped right at the start, and then there's the cut of course.

I saw the WoW machinima one years ago and I think that was the reason I tried to make this too. Anyways. I know it ain't that great and it's been done before. I'll make up for it next time ^^;

You left out the best part!

You need to do the part with the tools being listed! That's the bet part of the song! For that, you lose many points. If you had that part of the song, you'd break through 4/5 easily.

However, it is only a 3, for now.

very good, but heres a hint if you wan't to redo

on youtube someone posted a hareware video like yours, though it's machina, you could get a few hints for this if you should ever wish to redo it; g1LLA

P.s. as most people said before me, the list bit that you cut was the best bit, ow well :)

I was like ":D", then I was like "D:"

You cut it out right at the best part. What was there fit the song perfectly, to be honest. You really should've animated the next part of the song though, with all the tools and stuff.

Maybe animate it separately and submit it later?

6/10, 5 in the Portal.

Link3Kokiri responds:

Maybe *nod nod*

Thanks for the review. And yes, I know. I hate not having the last verse in so I might get it edited soon

Well done! Can't wait for a longer version. TBH, the only reason I didn't give this a perfect score is because of the length, but I understand time constraints caused by classes.
