RIP Porkchop "Piglet" P., 2006-2011
The Best Guinea Pig that Ever Lived

The Star Syndicate Newgrounds blog will no longer be centered around guinea pigs. I know several of you will be happy to hear that, but for the rest of us, it has been a sad and dark moment of our lives. Porkchop was a good friend of ours and was well-known for having the record number of Turd of the Week awards back in '06 or so. The so called "TOTW King of the Portal" spearheaded the Star Syndicate's mass-voting efforts, a term coined by Porkchop as well. Porkchop was the mastermind behind such Flash hits as -=OMG HALO!=- and -=Alien Hominid Tribute=- and worked to unite the efforts of the Star Syndicate and the UCFD. We have lost not only a guinea pig, but a brilliant artist and a fiercely loyal friend who never once betrayed us.

Go in peace,
ThreeStar

As of February 16, 2011, the Star Syndicate's page on Newgrounds.com will primarily be an informational blog about guinea pigs.

The guinea pig, also called the cavy, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia. Despite their common name, these animals are not in the pig family, nor are they from Guinea. They originated in the Andes, and studies based on biochemistry and hybridization suggest they are domesticated descendants of a closely related species of cavy such as Cavia aperea, C. fulgida, or C. tschudii, and therefore do not exist naturally in the wild.The guinea pig plays an important role in the folk culture of many Indigenous South American groups, especially as a food source, but also in folk medicine and in community religious ceremonies. Since the 1960s, efforts have been made to increase consumption of the animal outside South America.

Thanks for your time. I hope you've learned something today.
Love,
ThreeStar

after a 2 year hiatus, we are pleased to announce the long awaited return of daily toons. during those 2 long years, not only have we improved our flash and art skills to heights beyond what we dreamed about when we first started this group, we have, most importantly, matured a great deal. with most of us now being in our twenties and having young children, it is time to turn the page on our puerile behavior and begin a new chapter.

daily toons season 5 will start on june 21st. here's how you can be a part of this series.
send your .flas to DTseason5@gmail.com with specs of 550x400 and 24fps.

thank you and have a good day

after a long hiatus, the SS is officially back.

pretend in this video, the truck is newgrounds and the road is the path of gayness. the SS is the car bomb

/* */
our new series is called syndication because it will be submitted to other websites besides NG. it will be multimedia based, including flash, video, art, and whatever else we can come up with. unlike dailytoons it won't be daily, coming in weekly installments in the coming months.

each episode will best structured like a best of dailytoon. if you've never heard of dailytoons, here's a good example:

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/
403400

all of the submissions will be played in a random order which is different every time you press the play all button, making for essentially a new experience each time you watch. there will also be scene selection and a DVD style menu

anyone on NG is free to submit their cartoons to be a part of the collab, the same way people used to submit to dailytoons. however, not everything that is sent will be used, unlike dailytoons. whatever you send has to be somewhat worthwhile or funny. but it doesnt have to be amazing, it can be an unfinished project or a short loop. as long as it cuts together well with other submissions

if any artists or crews are interested in collaborating on this series, please send a spare toon, drawing, musical piece, or short film to:

SyndicationSeries@gmail.com

SPECS:
720x480
30fps
white background
Flash CS3 or lower (no CS4 i hate that buggy piece of shit)

if you send a video it should also be 720x480 and 30fps if possible. 640x480 is ok it will just be letterboxed

first episode is august 5th!

hold on to your dicks
