All NG credits stripped, two watermarks from people / companies that had nothing to do with creating it. And this shitty video rip made the front page of Digg.
Hi there! In case you didn't know, I created newgrounds. No, it wasn't made by some giant company - just some dumb kid who now has help. I also co-founded the Behemoth; we made Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Icon by JohnnyUtah, banner by Pego

We've been working on a series of new docs for the site and I've been evaluating what existing content should carry over and what should get phased out.
While ultimately I think it would be cool to have a "Bio" tab on every user page, at the moment I'm really tempted to remove the old biography I have for myself here on the site.
I wrote the majority of it while I was in high school and it shows. On the plus side, it might resonate better with young users - it's written in a way I wouldn't write now and full of details that seem extremely non-noteworthy in the scope of my life. But maybe it helps everyone relate to me a little more; after all, my modern day e-persona is a bit of an automaton that just tries to filter important news to the NG public and let them make up their own minds about everything else.
So I guess the question is: Have any of you found that reading my bio page brought you closer to the site, or is it just more clutter? Or worse, is it LAME?

I think I do an exceptional job at masking it but I really just can't stand to exist in the month of February. One of my life goals is to pack up and disappear for this one month every year.
I've been noticing it for over 10 years now; no matter what systems or motivations I try to put in place, I always have a really shitty month.

When I last posted about the first floor it looked like this.
Currently it looks like the picture below! Expect more drastic changes this month.
A lot of people scratch their heads over what exactly we'll do with this giant empty space, but it sure beats having a giant dirty space. We're picturing meetups, tournaments, galleries... Whatever we're in the mood for doing any given week. It's a new communal space for a new decade!

The upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie reminded me of something that scared the shit out of me when I was a little kid. It was a TV movie version of Alice in Wonderland, with a scary Jabberwocky scene.
I decided to look it up on YouTube and was excited to find the clip!
From the get-go, it was just as creepy as I remembered... Alice returns to her home, but it's a creepy, empty home. She looks through the mirror to see her family, but they are on the other side of the glass and can't see Alice looking back at them.
Alice sits down, opens a book and begins to read about the Jabberwocky, with jaws that bite and claws that catch... Still creepy.
My heart actually starts racing as I brace myself for the inevitable terror. The lights in the house go dim... Alice turns and screams... The Jabberwocky has arrived!
And it's an f'ing guy in a dragon suit and flashing inverted colors. I can't believe I was actually scared by that once.

I keep seeing these new Disney commercials and wondering, When did the Muppets start associating with Disney?
A google search revealed that Disney bought the Muppets from the Jim Henson Company in 2004. I imagine that was all over the news but I hadn't made note of it. Did everyone else know about that?
