Since this is off topic, I will share with you my favorite Newgrounds flash movie of all time. It does help if you're familiar with Silent Hill 2, but it's a riot. There's a bit of blood and mild language, but nothing too bad. www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/334798

OK, today here's some webcomics that need more recognition:
Daily Dinosaur Comic www.qwantz.com/archive/001072.html Its the same comic, the same panels of a T-rex stomping a house etc EVERY DAY, but the words change every time and its still one of the FUNNIEST webcomics ever!
It manages to stay fresh every time, that's how good the writing is! Conversations between T-Rex and God and T-Rex's continuing love problems with Dromiceiomimus are just some the hilights.
And from a link from there, I found Isotown www.isotown.net/index.php A small pixellated town in the style of Simcity, each panel shows a step in the towns growth (scaffolding goes up, a planted tree starts to sprout), but the little stories that go along with the panels give the town great personality.
For example, recently a shop and a house were being built next to each other, and it became a race to see who would finish first. The house team used dirty tactics like vandalism, but the shop team refused to retaliate and managed to win anyway! Recommended for people who have a lot of patience. Start at the beginning of the archive.

That Bitey Castle is awesome! Very atmospheric!
OK, animation sites:
Homestar runner Most of you have probably heard of this one, its quite a popular one. www.homestarrunner.com Basically, its a series of Flash animations about a group of odd characters. Homestar is meant to be the main character, but his antagonist Strong Bad is much more popular, and has a regularly updated show on his own section of the site. Real people email him with questions, which he answers comically.
The site also supports a number of secondary series, usually involving characters invented or imagined by Strong Bad in his show. Its slightly american, but nothing is too confusing for us Johnny Foreigners! And it's hilarious!
Weebl's Stuff Now here's a good one. It's like the ruder, madder British cousin of the Homestar website! www.weebls-stuff.com Basically, the guys just chuck out crazy animations all the time (usually musical), and sometimes the more understandable ones (with a plot and everything!) become series's.
The flagship series is of course Weebl and Bob, about two egg shaped guys hanging out and trying to obtain pie. They love pie. Check out their song parodies - Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back becomes the hilarious "I'm bringing Pastry back!"
Also, there's a series about a guy who stabs people, one about a Lord who dabbles in drugs with amusing effects, and On The Moon with a slice of toast (the king of the moon) and his neighbor, Insanity Prawn Boy.

nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
