[Community Showcase] Sidescrollers NewsDesk 2011 Wrap-Up
From the absurd to the tragic to the hilarious, if it was reported on the Sidescrollers News Desk you can find it here -- illustrated.
Editor's Note: These Infographics are awesome! Great work g1 Gazebo!!
That about does it! All the values listed here are per the best of my knowledge; I didn't thoroughly research most stories (save for a select few) and used pretty much what was reported on Sidescrollers. Thanks for checking out my time sink and here's to a fantastic (and utterly screwball) 2012!
The grass phallus is actually the one item that came from Australia/Oceania and the only one I have in my notes from last year in that area.
im sure you missed 2 new zealand ones. expecially the lawn dick.
The best moment of the best attraction of Screwattack. Yes, I love Sidescrollers, but the newsdesk is, hands down, the best part. OMG, not one crazy piece of news from my area? (South America-Brazil) Wow... we're normal... ? Really?
Sorry if that sounded rude btw, I meant that in the nicest way possible, it was very thorough and an enjoyable recap of the year's silliness :)
Though I'm a little disappointed there was only one story from Australia, we need to work on that for 2012 haha.
Thanks dood & thanks for the showcase!
Yeah yeah, I know...it's nice to invest time in a project I actually enjoy working on for once, though.
Yikes, you put a suspect amount of time in to this o_o
great job getting all these stats had to be fun tho lol
Gotta love Florida.
I really hope the crew start re-enacting the news desk stories again, they made the stories all the more hilarious.
I love the George Carlin quote. Even he knew about Florida.
Coincidentally, most of Sidescrollers Illustrated was drawn in Florida.
The power of Florida is a curious thing,its so crazy but we love it..
Florida is so crazy...
I'm from Florida and when sometime stupid happens in Boynton Beach, I'll be celebrating hard! ^ ^
Yup! Bear in mind that this includes more involved skits like your stripper dance (hee hee) in addition to tiny roles like the one where you simply shake your head "No" at the camera whilst discussing celebrity-themed condoms.
Didn't take as long as you'd think (to research, anyway). I just kept a text file open while watching each weekly episode and jotted what notes I could. I did have to look up a few episodes ("Leave the Piss" being one...and yes, it's still hilarious; even more so at 4am!) since some of my earlier entries were pretty shoddy. Glad you liked it!
as crazy as it is i miss florida
this is awesome! great way to sum up the years news desk!
