Hey ya'll, just thought I'd make a little blog post to say a few things that were on my mind this week. First off, thanks so much to the staff for putting my new toon Phobe on the front page, and at the top of all places. That helped make my first cartoon ever to reach over 100,000 views which may be nothing for the Rtils and Alvin Earthworms but made me the happiest motherfucker on the west side of Lansing, seriously.
I thought I'd answer a few recurring questions in reviews and PMs for people who come by my page.
Q: I didn't understand the story, there's not enough background info...
A: I made this particular toon as an analogy of how progress and tradition can clash when nobody listens to each other, and included all the info I felt necessary to get that point across. Yes, it moves fast, I know, but hopefully that helps smooth things over. I had kind of figured it was a simple concept, but maybe it's just me.
Q: Who's the main character?
A: There is none, the characters are important here, but not their individual storylines. Who's good and bad is up to the viewer I guess.
Q: What's with the bad audio quality?
A: I had to rape the hell out of the sound quality on this flash for it to fit the file size limit. Sorry it sounds bad on some parts, next toon I make, I'll just email to Tom so I don't have to do that. Nubia's ear-shattering scream however was completely intentional and meant to scare the shit out of you.
Q: Is the Necropolis Mental Disorders series going to be related to DevilSlayer?
A: Yes and no. The mythology has some of the same premise, and there's some common characters, but for future Necropolis cartoons I don't plan to make any effort to link the two stories together. DevilSlayer doesn't make any sense to me anymore and I made it.
Q: This reminds me of Samurai Champloo.
A: Champloo is one of my main inspirations, so I'd imagine so.
Q: This reminds me of the Boondocks.
A: Fuck you.
I love you Newgrounds! Keep feeding my attention jones and I'll keep making weird cartoons for you.
