Shawn, you should have said... your comments or in the movie itself to not review it unless you understand it. Unfortunately, you lent yourself to a whole community that includes citizens whose literature comes from google searches and chat rooms. Some, however, know who HP Lovecraft is and why this is funny. I'm one of the latter people. And I don't mean to group internet users into two categories, either, as I'm sure there are many more categories as well. I just want to let you know that this was a great toon, and that I feel your pain when, in response to confused reviews, you say "sigh!" Oh, and I want to eat your brain.


Story Tag 2b: Blown Away Story Tag 2b: Blown Away

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I, too, loved the first one but...

...I thought the point of this particular animation, ie Story Tag, was that you and Gel took turns on portions of this story so that the outcome was only clear when you both finished it. I really thought that that was what this was all about.

Don't get me wrong, I thought this was very humorous and well animated. It just seems that you and Gel abandoned the concept between part 1 and 2 of this series. Or am I really thick headed? Um, don't answer that...

Great flash, though.


Dustball responds:

You are absolutely right about the Story Tag concept but yes, the confusing thing about this movie is that it is not a Story Tag at all. It's not that we abandoned that concept, we just haven't finished any recently, but this movie is somewhat of an anomaly. The Story Tags usually stay fairly simple, and don't have elaborite emerging plots, exciting, detailed characters, etc. But when gel started Story Tag 2 he drew up characters from an existing clay animation of ours simply as a joke. I continued to add existing characters and a sort of functional story started to miraculously develop! In the end, it played out more like a planned movie than an actual Story Tag. We decided it was getting so long and would take forever to finish along that path so we submitted it as "part one". When it got such a good response I decided maybe it would be best to finish it "for real". Many people, including ourselves were curious to see how the story would play out, but it wouldn't be nearly as coherent if it was to be done Story Tag style. Quite some time later, I had a finished product... but what to call it? The best choice, albeit a confusing one, is "Blown Away: Story Tag 2 part 2" Since that's really what it is: the sequel to Story Tag 2. I'm sad to see it's chances of daily feature getting trampled by some 3D eye candy (you evil dog, you). I really put every last minute of my free time into this movie for several months, and I'm very proud of it.

Nice idea...

I for one am a big fan of Dave Thomas and was slightly dissappointed with his absence from the toon you made. I understand that the way you animated this toon is the style you were going for, and I can't really understand why others are putting you down for your lack of animation on the figures. Santa was frickin' hilarious.


What I can't stand is your refutes of others' reviews. Grab a sack of maturity and get over yourself. You gotta admit that there is a tonne of stuff better than your stuff, not that you were trying to make something better than the best submission, and that there are people who are just not going to like what you did. Lots of entertainment critics aren't movie makers or dancers but just regular folks who like to be entertained. Not everyone on Newgrounds is an animator, but they do like toons, and they know what they like. Lighten up....

Yes, they know what they like. That doesn't mean they should use the reviewing process as a discussion board of name calling, and generally useless comments.

And believe me friend, I know a thing or two about taking criticism. I've been making short films for nearly five years.

SIMGIRLS version 5.1 SIMGIRLS version 5.1

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good concept...

Kind of like that other virtual dater or whatever you call it. Loved the art work, the interactivity, but I can't say I'm into the whole Hentai scene. Good work. And I like reason!
