"I'm having a little get together with some of my friends...."
I found this bizarre and disturbing little flash-movie a few months ago. The first link is actually the second
installment in what is now five episodes. There's more (including the first through the fifth) on his site.
The music is phenomenal- bits of spookiness from sigur ros
and aphex twin.
When you're all done, there's an interview with the author regarding Salad Fingers here
. People are still trying to figure out exactly who the character is and where he's from. If you look and listen carefully, there are literary references, anagrammed names, etc.
If you liked Salad, you might also like "Hell"

I've been having a good time with "You and We",
a project from Born Magazine
that invites you to "contribute your words and images to this continuously evolving, collective experiment." Users upload art, text and photos to be collaged together in a fast-moving montage that actually turns out to be pretty nice. So far there have been over a thousand contributors. [Flash, Sound (toggles), and possibly NSFW.]

Yet another political flash cartoon!
Anyone else getting tired of hearing the same bland crap about the upcoming election?
This flash cartoon somehow manages to be funny anyway, even though its subject has been done to death. It's brilliant, and definitely worth a look.

- This is a Flash
parody about the NFL's most notorious player agents, the Postons, Carl and Kevin. This article
from a month ago, pretty much sums up why they're becoming so infamous.

Alright, ruling out the ice caps melting, meteors becoming crashed into us, the ozone layer leaving, and the sun exploding... we're definitely going to
blow ourselves up
figure out a way to transform ourselves into strings
and plunge through a black whole into the next universe

This is the best webdesign/use of flash I've seen yet...
I just started poking around in here. (Via igiveashit.com)

Drawn in the style of a pre-school children's cartoon.
But from the sick & twisted minds of the guys from Southpark.
Princess, A lap dog who observes the very adult world around her. The sexual content was so extreme shockwave.com halted development of the "webisodes" only after seeing the first 2 of 39 episodes that were contracted.
Now you can watch
these shorts & judge for yourself. Thanks to the folks at Trio.

Our delicate ecosystem -
apparently comprises snakes, badgers, mushrooms and ..er.. badgers. If, like me, you are in an excitable mood, then you will be murmuring 'badger badger badger' for the next 5 hours in a Beavis 'Tee-pee for my bunghole style'. Happy early Friday flash!

Slightly ominous, slightly beautiful
collection of ePostcards (and photographs) of Streatham Cemetery, rendered in the subtlest use of Flash I've ever seen (gentle animations on small portions of each image. Be sure to view the cemetery in all four seasons, multiple pix of each.

Long ago in ancient greece lived the Bush who began it all: HERCUBUSH! Half God, half mortal, half Texan, HERCUBUSH roamed the seven seas with one mission: To Destroy EVIL!

Let's get in shape
'cause we never know when we'll have to defend ourselves.
Later we can go dancing!
That Friday Flash thing you all like so much 'round here!

Baby, It's Cold Outside:
Perhaps it's unethical - well, it's certainly incestuous - to draw your attention to one of madamjujujive
's great links on quonsar
's brilliant Meepzorp
blog ("Where, thank the Lord, it is always Friday"
- Christian Science Monitor
, 18.12.76). But what about linking two? Bouncing Baby
are two great Flash pieces that address the question of nurture; motherhood; the oral nature of pleasure; the ontology of fuzzy gratification; the metaphysics of the transition from womb to nipple and other meretricious bullshit justifications for fun.
