It's FRIDAY FLASH FUN!!
Don't know what a Flash is? Do you love horses? Wish you could paint really well?
OMGGGGG THAT'S PERFECT!!

Flash is kinda like a cloud.
It works on a Mac.
It transcends Race, Politics, and Religion.
It's the purest expression of Music, and yet feels so Raw and Dirty.

WARNING: Too Much Flash Can Cause Fever, Blurred Vision, and/or Irritability.

(Also, there are a few pages on the site not linked in the post that are slightly NSFW)

I was complaining that people were acting like Flash and HTML5 are competing, when they really serve separate purposes (with a bit of overlap).

But now I'm convinced that it's only fair to declare war on Flash.

Another Bad Creation: Playground (Castlevania Remix)

The site has an index that contains information about all the clips and songs used in the loops.

The Music link made me laugh. Probably harder than I should have.

The Irritability link really had me laughing.

BTW, not a site you should click around on if you have photosensitive epilepsy.

From a friend:
The music from whatisaman.swf is a mashup done by LSTB aka L-Shaped Tetris Block, a fellow who has apparently disappeared off the internet. It's a mashup of Another Bad Creation - Tha Playground and 'Vampire Killer' from Castlevania 3 on the NES. (He's also the guy responsible for Super Slam, a mashup of Quad City DJs - Slam Jam and Quazar - Funky Stars / Hybrid Song 2:20. slam.swf if you've never seen it.)

(If you're an internet stalker historian of sorts, tetrisblocks.net [web.archive.org link] is his old website.)

Despite much internet sleuthing, the highest quality mp3 that exists of the original mash appears to be 24k / 22050Hz. So I (semi-self link) redid the mashup (mp3 | FLAC).

Other interesting trivia: whatisaman.swf was made by Nobuyuki who also made taskbah.swf
