Still love looking back on these. This is my ALT by the way. Keep up the great work!

Glad you do! It can be sometimes cringey for me, haha.

i think a large part of my dislike for this is that the lines seem oddly structured. the timing is very strange. that's not to say this awful, it's still more original than half the stuff i see here. but i'll agree with other commenters: it does seem very, very boring, and if that was your point and the whole thing is a giant meta-joke, then you've succeeded. this isn't to put you down - i'm not here to do that. this appears to be your first animation here, so maybe you've just got to get a few more going.

also, it's very long. you make the stuff you want to see, and if it is 9 minutes long, then by all means. i've got a few ideas for animations that are upwards of 10 minutes and beyond. but if it is structured like this, then it may have a hard time receiving an audience. this is, of course, all just opinion. i certainly don't want you offended by any of this... i've had enough internet trolls. i hope you take this comment with the heart it was written with.

I dunno, I just have a very weird and dry sense of humor. Not everyone's gonna get it. That's cool, though. Was the video a meta-joke? Kinda. I mean, it's not meant to be so boring that people hate it and quit watching it. But at the same time, it's not meant to be super fast-paced either. It's just a simple little cartoon where the humor comes from the characters and the things that they say. If you don't find my kind of humor funny, then I suppose you're not gonna enjoy it very much and it will be boring.

The timing might be off because of the way it was edited. That's why there's pauses between when the characters speak. The lines may look strange to you because this whole cartoon (except the first 7 seconds) was drawn frame-by-frame in Gimp. (You can see how it was done in the speed paint video that I put in the description.) I started working on this before I got Flash.

I don't see it at all as a put-down. I'm glad that you went more in detail in talking about it. Thanks for the review and hopefully you'll like the new video I'm working on better.

I was bored watching this. Maybe more bored than the dudes in the cartoon. Questing against boredom does not make an interesting plot, and unless the comedy is well-written the characters become tedious.

I do, however, respect the meticulous and geometric lip-syncing.

Domonization responds:

Sorry that you got bored from watching it, friend. Isn't that ironic? Well, I'm glad that you liked the lip-syncing at least. Thanks for the review.

This was mildly funny. Decent job overall.
