Who's ever gonna read this?

I've been a fan of Newgrounds for a long time. I've watched Flash animation grow from a novelty with uncharted potential into a valid art form in its own right. I remember seeing All Yor Base here before we knew who was gonna be the president. Xiao Xiao #3 was dazzling us with it's fluidity and power at #1 while we played Paper Rock Scissors Russian Roulette with the Uberkids.
Without a conventional audience to conform to, an artist was free to create an audience of their own. Newgrounds hosted an exquisite cognitive dissonance that resonated with a lot of people. It seemed like a tone missing from our scale that had finally been given voice. Of course there was brilliant satire, such as The Grim Reaper Show and The Last Two Men on Earth, but Salad Fingers gave us a direct lick of this chord. Unfettered from the prudishness of television, artists could freely express themselves.

Flash continued to refine its machinery, and the mad gnomes who spun its gears kept pushing the envelope to churn out finer works. Weebl and Ken McIntyre were two of my favorites.
But then Bitey showed up and changed everything. This was some serious animation. This was no longer about pushing the borders of taste, and could now get on with pushing the borders of art.

Newgrounds is no longer targeting an audience, they create an atmosphere.
Where else can you get such brilliant, unfiltered madness such as Greasy Moose and Catoblepas?

Anyway, I'm no Flash artist, I'm just a grateful fan. All I have to contribute to this wonderful site are my words.
I enjoy writing reviews, and I'm quite sincere when I'm not fucking around. If you'd like any feedback from me, show me your stuff and I'll serve you no bullshit.
