Oh the years

2015-03-06 00:50:29 by Katanakaji

I can go on for days about what I honestly think about all of my favorite animators and their work. In some way or another I have caught my self- even many years later; quoting these silly tidbits of data, crafted into a .swf file and uploaded to view for all of our viewing pleasure. Nostalgia is a weakness of mine, as much as I hate admitting anything of the sort. I remember Newgrounds in a budding haven for creative minds, full of ads and shimmering aspiriation, in the wee days of the L337H@xx0z speak.

It brings me great joy to have seen a good lot of memorable animators come and go. Sadly we lost some of the to ill health or just adapting to new goals. This makes me wonder as to the future of Newgrounds in an era of Youtube and Social Media paving way to new talent and new brilliant minds. Promising animators such as Randy Solem with his ROMK series and Mack Daddy Mario, Edd Gould of Eddsworld, Tomorrows Nobodies and their antics, Weebl and his catchy- almost infectious music, and Legendary Frog with all of his satire and even his wonderful original Ark & Kerrigan flashed flourished in this magical place.

Newgrounds emerged into the stigma of Internet animation, which was at the time a new and radical thing that nobody would ever have imagined would thrive as it did. Of course we had other sites such as Albino Blacksheep and Ebaumsworld (which ive always seen as kind of a generic newgrounds clone, albiet inferior) but newgrounds really did impact my life. I didn;t have the best childhood, god knows nobodies family life is perfect... but this is one of the small things in life that that I always thought should be enjoyed.... Remebered as a great thing and if you were lucky to be part of it from an earlier time when things were simple, then I say to you: isn't that worth just reflecting on once in a while and smiling about?

Just a rant, from a foolish man. Yearning to find his fire in life.
