Asphodel's 3: Arouse

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Your three favorite zombie barflies are looking for love, laughs and lymph on open mic night! Watch them try their guts out, literally.

This one was written by my man Nate Carroll, who provided the most excellent Bad Company rendition you'll hear on Newgrounds. I just animated, so please people, direct your invective against him. And no Asphodel's would be complete without the inimitable voice talents of Ian Silvia, purveyor of fine blown glass at Fried Glass Studios (Christmas balls on sale now!). And of course I'd like to thank all the musicians whose work I've felt free to use to no small effect, may they never know otherwise.


7.5 minutes long, so get comfortable.

Keep it coming...even if it kills you!

Beautiful animation. I know it's a lot of work, but the end result sure is fun. Love the little visual asides (the eyeball by the toilet paper, the restroom sign) and your use of music is spot on! Also, I think your view points are really cinematic. Went back and watched the others, too, all in row, and feel the characters have really grown, been really "fleshed out," bad pun intended. Hope there'll be another. If it becomes an annual event, well, hell, I'll almost always have something to look forward to!

Thanks for your effusive praise! It's been a maxim of mine to always bring an almost Nipponese attention to detail to whatever projects I'm working on, and as you so nicely pointed out it's the asides and elaborations that bring life to an otherwise staid and homely bit of drunken undead ribaldry. It only takes a few hundred thousand minutes, but it's worth it! Music and sound are the other half of an animation, and as rock runs through my blood like a healthy dose of malaria I like to spill a bit for full effect. And as this is the anonymous age of easy download, why the hell not? And as to another, this can be an annual event, hell, even bi-annual! But look for future Asphodel's to be shorter, faster, more quick to reach climax (nyuk nyuk). Don't you think more/shorter vids about our lovely loathsomes would hold the world's attention better than the occasional epics? Think one or two minute snippets that annually add up to the seven or eight minute Tolstoyesque marvels you've come to expect. Think about it.

But thank you and all my loyal, discriminating fans around the world. It's for you that I mouse through the pain and burn out my retinas. In the end, all this animated gore and gangrene is for love.


Oh My God
