What a wonderful day!

Clock Day 2011 has come and gone. True, the Portal doesn't get flooded as it did a few years back, but the submissions that did hit Newgrounds - aside from a wide repetition of B parody movies - were of some awesome quality. Click something at random in the Clock Day 2011 collection and you're likely to find a movie made with obvious passion and love.

I'm proud to be a Clock and to have been a part of this day. On to the next 10 years of B!

One week until Clockday X!

B-lieve it! Just seven more days and the Clock Crew will be celebrating its 10th birthday on Newgrounds! 10 years of Flash masterpieces, of B and StrawberryClock, OrangeClock, RaspberryClock and AppleClock, and the thousands that followed in their footsteps. The internet is a fleeting and fickle medium, and so it is that much more remarkable that the Clock Crew has held its ground for a solid decade.

Naturally this will be cause for celebration in the manner Newgrounds has come to expect from us: by releasing hundreds of long-slaved-upon Flash masterpieces onto the Portal, hopefully with a vigor and volume the likes of which has never been seen before! Remember that the Clock Crew loves everyone, so Clocks and non-Clocks alike are welcome to express their congratulations for this incredible milestone.

A week is not long when it comes to Flash masterpieces, so get cracking friends!

One week until Clockday X!

Happy Clock Day 2010!

Nine damn years of B and all that it entails. I can't believe we're just twelve months away from the Clock Crew existing for a solid decade, but I have no doubt it'll keep on ticking until then!

I haven't been a very active clock for the past few years, but I try to keep an eye out, and I couldn't let the day go by without contributing. I guess I forgot how long making a Flash movie can take, but it's lucky Clock Day was a weekend day this year. I spent six or seven hours working almost constantly to finish my co-production in time, ended up going to bed just after 6 am (which is Newgrounds midnight in my timezone). Thanks to Tackleberry for his patience! Sweet baby Jesus.

I'm pretty scrambled now but it's Sunday, so all you clocks and non-clocks and semi-clocks and anti-clocks have a wonderful Clock Day!

edit: oh and help me beat GodClock's game! I managed to get into it a little bit but now I'm stuck! Ha! Ha!

Happy Clock Day 2009!

The Clock Crew keeps on ticking. 8 years! It's incredible.

Though I haven't been active in the Clock Crew anymore in the past year or two, it's impossible to let the occasion of Clock Day go by unnoticed. At the same time, it's a little sad to conclude that I simply no longer have the luxury of dedicating much time to it, or the short video I made wouldn't have been such a rush job. Or maybe I should have just started much earlier, the age old Clock Day mistake.

Anyway, make the most of this day, when B adds another notch to its mighty red bark. Laugh, be touched, appreciate, and above all realize today is a day to remember that the internet is a silly place to enjoy yourself and not take things too seriously. Take time out to find a few Clock Day gems that run the risk of suffering underexposure, and drop their creators a note. Visit your local youth center and spread the good word about Donald Duck Porno and sss. The power is yours.

StrawberryClock is the king of the Portal. Everyone loves StrawberryClock.

Happy Clock Day!

Seven years! Can you believe that?

Have a good Clock Day, Clocks and Newgrounders alike!

Secret Clocktopiancy video

2008-02-26 13:31:19 by StrangeClock

I've been paid-- I mean, I volunteered to do a promotional video for the Temple of Clocktopiancy. Obviously this is for Clocktopiancists' eyes only, because only a Clocktopiancist can properly downstream the sigma emissions. You know that.

See it now on Youtube (if you are permitted)

A little quiet...

But still working. What on? You'll see.

Happy Clock Day 2007!!

Holy wow, it's me! >>>

Happy Clock Day to you all! I've only been home for few hours and spent most of those finishing up my little Clock Day Flash, so now it's time to watch and watch and watch and watch all those wonderful Clock movies that have bombarded the Portal this year.

As for mine, all I've got is this mean little teaser...

StrawberryClock is the King of the Portal.

Happy Clock Day 2007!!

Clock Day is near...

2007-08-12 13:45:44 by StrangeClock

Just a few more days till Clock Day 2007, and I'm sorry to say, I've barely been able to prepare. I knew a new Lord of the Clocks part was a no-no practically since just after last Clock Day -- much as I hate to disappoint the people who've been getting a kick out of those, I'm likely completely done with that series. Too much meticulous work for something that amounts to a very straightforward re-enactment with just a bit of parody. Besides which, my efforts in Flash have been pretty limited for about a year now - I'm not sure what's changed, but after Clock Day 2006 I found myself unable to shake the post-Clock Day rut and really commit myself to an animation again. I mean, you can see my movies between then and now aren't very animation-heavy (the Estranged Family movies I made months earlier).

Anyway, the prospect of Clock Day generally tends to urge me to work hard on something again, but unfortunately I'm in the middle of a pretty grating, fulltime internship, leaving me with very little time and very little creative energy on account of not enjoying myself much.

So hopefully I'll have at least something to leave my mark on the Portal come wednesday, August 15th, it just won't be something remarkable or big. Of course there'll be plenty of great Clock movies from other authors just like every year.

I want a good, clean Clock Day outta all o'ya! Let's get it on!
