And here's from before the first Penguin Calls:
And here're my thoughts for Tiny Plaid Ninjas:
Q: Speaking of penguin calls, your mom is awesome.
A: Yeah, she's pretty cool.
Q: Who is number 5 on penguin calls 2??
A: It ended up being my cousin's friend, though I didn't know this
when I made it. I guess she's saying "Wassup Homey G-Dog?!",
but it sounds more like "Blahzaa Woonchitos!!" to me.
Q: How do you record off of your phone?
A: Actually, I just hold a little computer mic up to my cell phone's speaker. Apparently, this doesn't work with all
phones, so I guess I'm lucky.
Q: Dude, your mom is awesome.
A: Yeah... I know.
Q: The penguin that fell in the hole, and then exploded, and then got squashed... did he really call three times?
Q: Are those messages actually real?
A: I promise!
Q: Dude, your mom is sweeeet!
Q: Are Argyle and Floral Ninja both dead?
A: The drewmo giveth, and the drewmo taketh away. And maybe the drewmo puts backeth. Or maybe he won't sayeth.
Q: Wanna fight?
Q: *punch!* *kick!*
Q: *punch!* *punch!*
A: *kick!* *kick!* *punch!*
Q: Good fight.
A: Yeah good fight.
Q: What software do you use?
A: I use Macromedia Flash MX for all of the cartoons. If you can get your hands on it, try it out, but it tends to be expensive
(I lucked out and got a copy from my dad). If you want to learn how to use it, there're a lot of great tutorials online (picking up a book is a great idea too). One good
site I'd recommend is actionscripts.org. For recording voices, I use Goldwave, but only because it was a free download and I'm not yet fed up
with it begging me to register.
Q: Should I buy a Tiny Plaid Ninja shirt?
A: Sure! Look, here's a pretty girl wearing one:

A: Spinnerdisc Fun Fact: The first Tiny Plaid Ninjas thong was sold on June 4th, 2005.
Follow-up Fact: The name of the buyer was Erik.
A: Yeah :) ...Umm... if you read this, Erik, thanks for visiting... dude.
Q: So what's wrong with spelling 'honour' like a Brit? Huh?
A: Y'know, an oreo in England falls under the category of 'biscuit'!? Biscuit! That would mean I
can have one with gravy. Crazy Brits. keep visiting.
