This is the second installment of my Ode flashes. The words you see are my own, although I am sure there are similar works out there. My goal with these flashes are to speak the truth in the simplest way that I can. Please enjoy.

(This one is not ment to be funny)

As for the song's maker Staxitix this is for you.

"A dedication to my ex-girlfriend who I still love and care about. A song that I hope she will hear one day and think of me. A song to inspire her to miss me, and realize that I'm still here, missing her."
- staxitix



I really do like the concept you're getting at with these, believe me. I just think that flash isn't the best format to put them in. Or rather, flash in icon-sized slots with cutesy Arial font isn't the best format to put them in. I really, really, really think more people, including myself, would fall in love with your work if you smartened up your presentation: larger window, and maybe some variation in font..? I know simplicity is what you're going for, but I think you should at least consider playing around with space. Make some text small, some big, but keep the general white-on-black overlay. I guess what I'm getting at is for you to emphasize what you consider the strongest words in these little bite-size quotes, so that more people get what you're saying.

SprintT responds:

I like this. I think I will consider this. Also cheers


Sorry it took me so long to view the video. Had computer issues. But I appreciate your effort and work you put into the piece, and more so, actually being inspired by my musical ditty.

Some may say "Oh, it's some words in a box woop!" but seriously, It's an awesome thought and awesome effort man.

Update on me? I'm great, and living life to the fullest, with a wonderful new lady :D

SprintT responds:

Glad to hear that :) and I am flag that you like what I did with your song. I normally go to the audio portal and search it for inspiration for writting, this, or w/e :D


I appreciate the thought you put into it and the message you're trying to convey, but the fact is you're probably gonna have to put a little more time and effort into it. A 50x50 pixel window and a few words just comes off as lazy, even if you did decide it would be better for what you're trying to do.

If all else fails, remember, Newgrounds is primarily an entertainment website, not an art gallery. This might be a little more appropriate on DeviantArt or something.

SprintT responds:

I personally would not add anything to it, but it really does not fit into the norm of NG. This is something I realize however. But as the title of NG says this is a place for evrything :) You are right thought.

Also: its a 100x100 pixel box ty lol

To Mr. Wiles

It's spelled "Grammar." Thanks for killing spelling.

SprintT responds:

HAHA! I supose I did :)

OK, but rather basic

Not much to it really. Shame to have a glaring spelling error in so few words-

scares/scars. Please fix

Hope he feels better soon. Time is a great healer, even if it doesn't fele like you can heal, we usualy do.
