Honestly, that's one of the funniest flashes I've ever seen. The animation work was smoother than ever, and EVERYONE loves dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
Yes, Mac ads do suck more than a Hoover vacuum. It's funny how fast the change propaganda; I can still remember when Mac was considered the premier system for serious graphics editing, and Mac still sucks for gaming. So the whole image they're trying to put out is just bull.
You know, I wash going to write a somewhat in depth review and ask some questions, but your mini-FAQ pretty much said answered all of what I had to say. I must admit though, I thought that this was custom sprite work; you fooled me. I was also very impressed with how you managed to create so much depth and movement within your limitations. I've never actually seen the Matrix(I'm a heathen, I know), so I didn't feel as if you cut corners at all. Without looking at it as an extension of the movie, but on its own merits, I think you did very, very well.
It's a prize alright
Well, I really like the technique you used, having different elements drawn outside of Flash (if you drew that BG in Flash, you must be God), all separate to create depth and perspective. I've actually never seen anyone do that quite as sophsiticated as you did. And for a first go? My hat goes off to you.
This was great. You not only grabbed onto the heart of this song, but expanded on it. The original music video was good enough, but it was superficial compared to this. I love what you did with the song. Not really a Twisted Sister fan (up the irons, I say!), but this is a great song and *this* is a great video. Bravo.
Was it just me, or was this video...inconsistent? I know that with 21 authors, something is bond to lack continuity, but the whole video seemed disjointed to me. Half of it fit very well. The rest, not so much. There were some things missing, something things that shouldn't have been there in the first place. A little late to whine now, but if one person had directed the whole thing and delegated specific tasks to each member, I think it would have turned out better. It wasn't the differing art styles that bothered me so much, it was the material that seemed to have no place, no corellation to the song at all. It wasn't completely irrelevant, but just enough to ruin the good parts for me. That's why it gets a 7 in my book. As far as techinical proficiency went, a 9 would be more appropriate, but the inconsistencies drag it down.
Sad but true
This is a great example of exactly what's going on with the whole Olympic buzz right now. "Let's just forget about who'd right and who's wrong and just have fun." That's what Chinese leadership wants us to think, and that's what a lot of Americans do think. Did you know that about a month ago, the American government officially removed China from the list of the world's greatest human rights violators? That doesn't happen spontaneously. It's because of the Olympics. The Olympics this year are just a weak facade for how skrewed up the world is right now. Not that I advocate closing them down; sports have done wonders for PR and politics in the past. It's jsut that we shouldn't consider them higher than the real issues, and than our principles.
Everyone loves a good Glock. The video wasn't the greatest submission on Earth, but I've gotta give the love to the Glocks.
Death metal's not all there is to it
Well, I can understand why people may not be into death metal, but it'd be a grave mistake to charecterize all metal by those standards. Metal is perhaps one of the most diverse styles of music, period. My own little rant aside, however, this was quite funny, despite the mischaracterization of metal.
Hooray for good English!
Someone who actually support increased vocabulary on the internet?! *gasp* If only for that alone, Foamy is my hero. Seriously, I'm tired of all this crap we hear these days, especially from the ghetto/rapper types. IM and SMS lingo also is a menace, even making it into school papers! Honestly, whatever happened to English? We don't even speak Enlgish in America, we speak American, something that used to be called English. Which sucks. The worst part of it is that this bad English is spreading to other English speaking nations. ARGH!
