Massage my Newgrounds softbody to spritely rigidness

Posted by LyleRath - January 4th, 2016

Sup, maybe you know me, maybe you don't. Either's fine. I've mainly been a Youtube dingus but I've been on NG a long time (the account says 2008, but I've been lurking well before that.) I'm sure a big post pining about the golden age of Newgrounds and wanting the site to return to its former glory would just be preaching to the choir here so I'll skip that part.

Long story short, I've been wanting newgrounds to make a comeback for a while but saying that isn't really worth shit if I'm not even posting my stuff here. I've been reluctant to put things up because I'm not an animator. I've animated in the past but most of the cartoons you'll see me post are produced/written/directed by me and animated by someone else. But fuck it, everybody ends up as worm shit eventually so I might as well go for it. 

Youtube is a shithole site that revamped itself to cater to whoever could vomit out 10 minute videos the fastest. Maybe you've seen some videos by oldhat newgrounders who are totally bangingable about how garbo Youtube is for animation, and it's like "Hey wasn't there an awesome site that was about cartoons and stuff? We should help that come back."

Anyways, bear with me while I do catch-up. A lot of the stuff I'll be posting for a little while will be older, but I'll keep up with newer cartoons in the future (maybe I'll even sneak some stuff up a bit early from time to time.) Right now I'm polishing up and rereleasing the first 4 episodes of a series called Rip Snorting. You can watch the first episode HERE! It's animated by the dashing James Bowman and influenced by old cheeseball adventure serials and goofy nonsense writing in stuff like the Adam West Batman series from the 60s. Hope you dig it.

Also, I do a lot of non animation stuff on youtube so if you're interested in not-cartoons and want to help me eat those youtube beans, check me out here. Also if you're thinking "This motherfucker needs to talk a lot less" You can check out my Twitter account here where I only get 140 characters, so most of what I say just becomes a truncated penis joke.

If you still have no interest in who I am or what I do whatsoever, don't click either one of those things and unread this whole post.


I clicked all of it and I'm happy to see you working with DonkeysBazooka on stuff!

You are the stardancer of my dreamhole, Tom.

Yeah youtube is tough for animators, it's a good sharing platform, but not really a good monitization platform. I really want Newgrounds to become the platform it once was, so here's to 2016!

I just wanted to say platform a lot. Cool stuff by the way.

Lyle! So good to hear you're totally on board for this thing! I remember a while ago you made some statement of posting here more, but I know stuff happens and it just didn't work out, whatever, but I had a feeling you WOULD be keeping to it eventually.

I really think YT pissing enough people off could lead to some new golden age for Newgrounds or something.

Huge fan, maybe someday in the future I'll get to provide some VA for you or something!

Good to hear old roots not burnt at the tips to the trunk. Much success to your endeavor's friend; you got good content coming out.

I agree with what you said about youtube catering to whoever could put out videos the quickest.

It's good to see you back on Newgrounds

i read your things on twitter and i laugh at them

Love your content on Youtube, glad to see you here. And yes, Youtube has become a really toxic place for animators and content creators in general, while Newgrounds remains as cozy as always.

Truth be told, after finding out that you're friends with basically everyone that has ever been popular on Newgrounds, I was surprised to see that you never posted stuff, and I'm glad that you're gonna finally start pulling your weight, YOU LITTLE SHIT. Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing your content here.

I think we all feel the same way about everything that has been going on with both newgrounds and youtube. Knowing so many people speak out their concerns and show support fills me with hope.

Why don't you go back to youtube, only REAL artists are allowed here. We don't take kindly to you sellouts

Welcome back, but prepare yourself. Newgrounds may not have as many fags as Youtube, but you'll still get slightly penis'd every now and then.

i've seen a lot of your channel stuff on youtube. are you just copying it to this channel?
i ask, cause i'm sure i saw rip snorting before on a major yt channel before. i think happy hour.
any ways i want to make sure this is legit and you aren't ripping some one else off.

no offence, but its a funny series, and i just want the creator to get his just rewards.

Yeah I wondered what was up with you and I'm glad you managed to get out of things you were doing before they became sellout trash and seeing your voice here again is quite something

I loved rip snorting I watched them all several times. btw If your looking to hire a new animation guy I would be super interested.
