Happy Birthday Egoraptor.

He turned 22 today (6th).

Lets all leave kind words about how much we love/love to hate him.

I'll go first.

If he was a dinosaur he'd look like this.

Happy Birthday Egoraptor.


2008 was AWESOME.

At the stroke of midnight we shall be saying goodbye to 2008. The most productive, exciting, adventurous year I've ever had. I'm so thankful for everything that happened this year, it was just surreal.

- Landed a new job teaching Flash animation at a film school.

- Had a great Australia day with my friends.

- Joe Outterside/Xenon came to Perth and lived with me for a month.

- Worked my 2nd season on Australian TV.

- Turned 21 and had a party with all my closest friends. Had a MASSIVE night out.

- Held my own booth at a convention and was approached by many people, which was just a surreal feeling.

- Was introduced to the voice of Goku at that convention by a member of staff who was a fan of my work lewl!

- Travelled my first international flight alone.

- Met some great friends that I've known online for yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaars.

- Felt out of place at Anime-Expo but had a GREAT time anyway.

- Went to Disney Land for the first time ever.

- Had Reeses pieces for the first time ever and ate the brown paper surrounding the chocolate.

- Discovered Weinersnitzel.

- Pooped lots (see above).

- Met up with Cycon and Vallos of Podunkton and DCK.

- Went drinking with Cycon. We got into a pretend fight and I punched him in the face breaking his glasses and making the top of his nose bleed. Felt really bad.

- COMIC-CON SAN DIEGO.

- Met more online chumps, including Tom Fulp and most of the NG staff.

- Met Luis (what a dream boat).

- Had a funny incident with "Doug" and "Jeremy" from Pure Pwnage on the street of San Diego. Long story, I guess.

- Met Jhonen Vasquez, creator of JTHM, Squee and Invader Zim.

- Had drinks at Danomano and Hans' hotel room, called Krinkles "Kinkles" and he punched my in the chest. He's a big guy okay.

- Met just about everyone else under the sun there.

- Attending the Castle Crashers party, got extremely drunk even though I told myself I wouldn't.

- Stayed out even longer with Egoraptor, Tom Fulp and Tom Vian (Flash Bros). Cracked onto some random girl behind the bar, told her I was famous in Australia and she asked for my autograph. So I walked behind the bar and signed a napkin. Tom Vian told her it was worth "LOADS" on the Australian Ebay.

- Woke up to a earth quake for the first time ever. Had to grab onto a TV.

- Went to Universal studios with ChannelCat and Vensy of Sheezyart.com

- Went to bubba gumps. That place rocks.

- Went back to everyday life.

- Entered a Newgrounds competition for the first time ever.

- Collaborated with RedMongoose.

- Got contacted by Playboy.

- Started working for Playboy.

I think it was obvious what the highlight of my year was.

Happy New Year!!


Make Richard Farkas say ANYTHING

Recently Egoraptor was doing some lines my Playboy contract work and he came up with an interesting little idea.

He did a fairly large recording of him saying a huge selection of phrases and words in the Richard Farkas voice, with the intent to let people edit and chop it up to make him say stupid things (DOWNLOAD IT HERE). So far a few people on the GT forums have had a few strange attempts at making Richard say stuff (sorry I forget who did what here).

They're.. Strange.. I know. I'd like to see what funny, offensive or retarded stuff anyone here can do. Heck, feel free to chop them up into a song or even make a animation with them, I don't care. Do what you like.

If you don't have anywhere to upload them, just email them to ROSS AT GAMERTONIGHT DOT NET and I'll host them for you.

Go nuts, have fun. (:

Also I've been watching a lot of "How I met your mother". NPH is awesome.

I have some news.

2008-12-09 12:05:39 by RubberNinja

I'm now doing contract work for Playboy (same deal Firth was talking about). I've got a tiny bit of production costs, so I'm collaborating with my friends Alex (Redmongoose) and Nandi. The deadline is nuts, but I'm going to extreme measures to get it done in time..

I know I'm not the only one. To my knowledge there's quite a few other NG people in on the same dealio, so that's awesome. Great to see other people are landing deals like this :)!

I ordered a CINTIQ.. Which will be arriving on Friday morning.. Can't wait! My 6-7 year old INTUOS 2 was falling apart haha.

Also, I just wanted to say I fucking love Newgrounds. Probably wouldn't have got this far with what I'm doing without the support and exposure this site provides.

So thanks. Seriously.

Anyways, back to work :)..

I have some news.



So I thought I might as well show random crap I found on youtube these past few months instead.

That's about it I guess.

So how is everyone?


Dragon Ball Z is back?...

Out of no where Jump Comics have produced a brand new episode of Dragon Ball Z after 11 years. I believe it's for some sort of new website they're sticking together. Quite obviously re-using a lot of stuff in the introduction, but it certainly did come as a surprise when someone told me.

Nostalgic Cartoons

2008-11-17 01:56:30 by RubberNinja
Updated

So I was looking back on some of my favourite cartoons from when I was a kid, and I had a blast of nostaglia. So I thought I'd share some of them.

Insepector Gadget:

.
/* */
This cartoon was probably the first cartoon I truley loved. I wouldn't miss a episode and I had quite a lot of the toys. I mean, he's like a private investigator cyborg with a transforming car. What's not to like?

Samurai Pizza Cats:

.
/* */
I liked this before I even knew what anime was, this show was rather awesome. A tad bit silly though.

Transformers:

.
/* */
Speaking of transforming cars, this was pretty much the most awesome thing ever. I had an obsession with dinosaurs at that time, so naturally the dino-bots were my favourite characters.

Denvor The Last Dinosaur:

.
/* */
The obsession with dinosaurs also lead me to watch this cartoon. Although I look at it now and I think it's awful. Pay attention to the lyrics. "He's my friend and a WHOLE LOT MORE", they're practically molesting him.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

.
/* */
I was probably one of the only people I knew who thought Donatello was the best.

The Land Before Time:

.
/* */
This movie was fucking awesome, it still is in my opinion. Brilliant animation and good music.

Fern Gulley:

.
/* */

.
/* */
This movie was just sweet. Robin Williams played my favourite character, also the animation was just stunning.

Ren & Stimpy:

.
/* */
I loved this show because it was just so "naughty" for its time.

Widget The World Watcher:

.
/* */
Widget... He could transform into anything. It's pretty awful looking back on it now, but I liked it for some reason. He sounds like a $2 hooker.

Street Sharks:

.
/* */
Generic Ninja Turtles rip off, with terrible puns... But I liked it. I had so many of the toys.

Beast Wars Transformers:

.
/* */
I would always rush home from school to catch this cartoon. Although obviously its very outdated now, it still holds a special place in my heart.

Pokemon:

.
/* */
I was rather late getting into this Pokemon trend, but I ended up watching it for a little while and rather liking it. Although it was a short lived trend here, I grew a seperate obsession with the red and blue versions of the game.

Dragon Ball Z:

.
/* */
A lot of people I knew hated it because they put it in the same bag as the passed trend "Pokemon". Yes, because it was Japanese animation. I know its just such a silly, over the top show.. But I was really into it and rarely missed an episode. I still consider it one of my favourite cartoons... I was also introduced to Sean Schemmel (english voice of Goku) at Supanova in Perth back in June this year, which I was rather stoked about.

Neon Genisis Evangelion:

.
/* */
I had no idea what was going on, but it was awesome!

Batman of the Future:

.
/* */
I never really liked Batman all that much, but I thought this cartoon had a really sharp solid style.

Digimon:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr5hk8E oIcg (can't embed it!)

I started watching this show quite a lot on Fox Kids back when that was around on the pay TV network "Foxtel" here in Australia. It was pretty sweet, but I never really got into any of the other seasons. Around this time I started to grow out of anime, since I saw it was becoming really overused.

Justice League Unlimited:

.
/* */
Ironically, my favourite character was "The Flash". This cartoon was just great.

Invader Zim:

.
/* */
I can't begin to explain how much I love this cartoon. I idolize Jhonens work. (couldn't find a full video without the spanish lmao). I shat a brick when I met Jhonen at Comic-Con.

Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends:

.
/* */
... This is just a awesome cartoon.

That's about all I can think of for now. :)


OBAMA!

Way to go America, you made the right choice.

EDIT:
Oh and wow.. thanks for weekly first on Nocturnus. Totally wasn't expecting that.. I really appreciate the support guys.

OBAMA!


Nocturnus

2008-10-30 18:24:03 by RubberNinja
Updated

Hey Newgrounds.

My new animated short "Nocturnus" is now out, so give it a look. The cartoon is based around a parasomnia disorder I frequently suffered from at the age of 12. "Pavor Nocturnus" or Night Terrors, are a unique, delusional experience where all you can feel is fear. It's somewhat like lucid dreaming crossed with, sleep walking, nightmares and sleep paralysis. From what I read you're generally not able to remember the events, but there are some rare cases where you can. I had quite a few where I could remember elements of the episodes. Some though were only recalled by my family members, as I'd be screaming or running to them for help. So basically this cartoon is a metaphorical representation of what I saw, felt and can roughly remember.

I hope you enjoy it.

Oh and HAPPY HALLOWEEN :O!

Nocturnus



Yes it is, yes it is.

Just on that final stretch of hard work before it's at 100%.. MONTAGE!

My new cartoon is ALMOST finished!
