Woo! I love good artsy flash. Anybody else sick and tired of the goofy cartoon sites? I've been on the lookout for folks who try to tell stories, enhance poetry or tweak the technology for more innovative uses than whirrling gerbils. where is all the good stuff?

Alien Abductee Theatre is awesome. Like the old Simpsons episode "how to eat humans.. how to eat for humans.. how to eat forty humans".

C'mon guys, we all know the best use for Flash is a splash screen for your corporate website that has words like "innovative" rotating around and morphing while techno music loops in the background. It never fails to impress me! [gag].

This site links to some fine flash design.

Yeah red dye in the eye. Nice touch.

There have been some amazing thinkers here. Erik Natzke, for one.

I am looking for more storytelling, less "flash." And, uh, I guess I have to get multiple tatoos (Matt and Josh) in order to amount to anything!
