So wait... you're Australian... the title of your cartoon is "Nimbin" (which, I assume, references the town in QLD? I don't know I've never been there so I don't know what it's like)... and yet you put on American accents.
It's comedy! Australian accents are funny. Be proud of your funny Australian accent, and use it.
First of all, Nimbin is in New South Wales. And second, im focusing alot more on the Australian accent in my new movies.
Hey, your flash was great - song was great, animation was great, idea was great, provocative, interesting, etc. etc.
Concerning the subject matter, however, I'd like to give my opinion, as an occasional visitor to ebaumsworld and user of e-mail and the internet.
All the things hosted on ebaumsworld are things that have gone around the internet in e-mails and on various small websites and fileservers, and in many cases, these files hosted on ebaumsworld are shortlived or hard to find otherwise. This is the service which ebaumsworld supplies for its visitors. In other words, I don't consider what Eric Bauman does stealing.
If he found the files and copyrighted them under his own name, that'd be stealing. If he found the files and claimed that they were his own original work, that would be stealing. If he sold them for money, that would be stealing.
As it happens, he does none of these things. Instead, what he does is supplies an alternative server upon which are hosted these various files from around the internet so that they are easy for people to find. He doesn't charge for this service, but instead sells ad space to anyone interested in buying it. Visitors to his website click on the ads on ebaumsworld at their own discretion, and almost never give money directly to Eric Bauman.
Maybe there are things I've said above which are incorrect, but from my experiences with the website, I've never seen any instances of "getting rich off other peoples' work" in the sense of stealing, and I have been to the website numerous times, mostly to play flash games and watch flash animations. I also enjoy the optical illusions and occasional "funny images" that can be found on the website. I've never been led by Eric Bauman or anyone else to believe that the work on the website is BY Eric Bauman, and in fact usually it is made very clear that "This image is HOSTED on ebaumsworld" but was not, in fact, created by ebaumsworld or whatever.
So yeah, I don't support your cause, and I just wanted to explain to everyone reading my alternate perspective on the situation.
And like I said, I enjoyed the movie, I think it was great.
Lots of love
Man what is it with nerds getting angry.
Sound so stupid.
One thing to say:
Seven beers and three shots of vodka and he's passed out in a pool of vomit?
I dunno how strong the beers are over where you are but I've got a feeling that guy's just WEAK!! HA HA HA!
Good work on the flash. It evoked emotional response from me.
PS. Maybe it was overproof vodka?
If Donald's Pizza Heaven was a real place, I'd go there having seen an ad like this.
Modern day marketing strategists could learn a thing or two from Donald's Pizza Heaven.
After watching this, I had a hankering for pizza (which I couldn't fulfill :( no pizza around).
You'll notice I've given you 10 for everything.
No-one reads these one-line summaries anyway
I didn't watch the whole thing, so I didn't vote.
But I do need to say this: I didn't watch the whole thing because I couldn't. Your sickeningly stupid sense of humour appalled me to the point where I could physically bear to watch your shit no longer.
Don't worry, I won't vote, but I will say this: As much of it as I saw, was really fucking ghey.
How's that for a review.
Fucking the best
Damn you guys fucking rule.
Ben is sexy.
I support your right to freedom of speech
Basically you had some outcast, oppressed kid being beaten up.
So basically, what I saw was your main characters as agents of popular culture - cult-members, as I like to call them - trying to keep the individuals who are already downtrodden by society downtrodden.
And then, he went to hell.
So basically, the message of your movie seems to be in support of the cult - you must conform to popular culture or die and go to hell. In heaven, they are all pop-culture fundamentalists who have served their cult well - this is hinted at in your movie by the angel saying the word "Dude" quite deliberately multiple times. The angel also says "You're not meant to be in here," - the subtext being, to me, that the subject "Doesn't belong", and that he is outcast even after death. You then repeat the typical jock line "It's just a joke." In essence, this line is the standard justification used by children and teenagers who have emotionally/psychologically scarred someone else for life. It's commonly heard - you would have intended your audience to be the kind of people who remember hearing this line from people they know or have known.
Jeff Weise killed a number of people whom he judged to have a negative effect on the lives of others - the kind of people, almost certainly, who would use the line "It was just a joke" or variants on it. Whether he judged well or not can never really be known. The thing is, he THEN shot himself. His reasons for this would have been varied, though I'm sure that one of his motives for suicide would have been the peace that is supposed to come after death. In your flash, one very important message you send to everyone out there who might otherwise consider suicide to escape the suffering of life is: "Even after death, the winners are the jocks and oppressors of individuality. The ones who can't accept narrow-minded society and its popular culture are the ones who go to hell to be 'Punished' for 'Eternity'."
You have every right to respond to Jeff Weise's message with one of your own.
I just want you to consider what that message actually is.
But... how do they know it was Jeff Weise?
I thought his online screennames were Todesengel and NativeNazi.
Also, I thought he was into Heavy Metal. Then again, I've only read one article... maybe I ought to read some more.
Anyway Jeff, if you can hear me, you've caused a stir man. Good work. You should have made some kind of statement though. Oh well.
Destruction is Inevitable
The Gostak distims the doshes.
If you were really as "deep" as you claim to be, you'd thank me for what I just said.
Maybe I'm just bitter because I feel like I didn't understand the movie, even though I get the sense that it all aplies to me.
I'm 17, male, caucasian, Australian. I am going through Grammar school, before I plan to go to University. I have no "friends". I want to see beautiful things. Bushfires in the night are beautiful. My music is interrupting my school studies. I want to live in Paris. I will never forget the look of peace and wisdom I saw in the eyes of a young girl in Bali, Indonesia. Actually, I probably will.
MY little one liner philosophies: Seek not truth but beauty. There is no unquestionable truth that may be uttered by humanity. Beauty is born(e? sp.) of destruction.
