You asked for it, you got it. No, it's not f**king waffles.

Even before i animated, i always had a habit of drawing friends into comics. In secondary school i would draw them all the time, if just to get a quick laugh or to insult another. Originally my group of friends in school were he cast of what i called 'Edd's World', most likely inspired by Wayne's World. Eventually i started using the internet more often and started using Neopets with Matt and others, which lead to me making a Guild and then a Guild website.. and that Guild was called 'Edd's Kill-a-thon'... yeah. A few weeks later after some angry threats, the admins removed my guild for having too violent of a title. So i made a new one and called it 'Edd's World' with a lame little Geocities webpage linking to cool stuff and funny pictures. Soon i started using an animated gif maker to make very bad anmated gif stories, mainly about stickmen dying and farts and what not. When i finally found a place to submit them (www.sfdt.com) i discovered they were no longer taking animated gif entries and were only accepting flash entires. So i click on one entry on the side and thought i'd see what these animations were like, and that entry was Agent Smiley (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) and basically i was like ohygodwydontihavethisprogram, and so i got it. On the 7th of November 2002. Needless to say i started using it, for the first few years i made primarily stick figure animations. Around 2004 i started making less stick movies and more character based things, and by the end i made the first Eddsworld 'crew' animation, the Eddsworld Xmas Special 2004 (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) Which had... mixed success. It wasn't until The Dudette Next Door (www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…) that the Newgrounds audience took any notice (wonder why) and fans started appearing and things started snowballing from there, really.

I first met Matt at a Sports day event. Me and my friend were sat next to him having to watch the tedious sporting events, and suddenly this ginger kid starts talking constantly to me and my friend. My first impression was that he was a bit of a prick so i was keeping my distance, but he soon engaged us in tic-tac-toe kind of games on paper, more with my friend than i. Then a few days later suddenly it's announced a pupil would be moving to our class and that me and my friend should know him, he said his name and i had no idea who he was talking about but i was hoping it wasn't- and in he walked. But none the less, he grew on me eventually (less so on others) and when my initial friend left the school it was just me and Matt basically! (Don't get me wrong, there were other friends but this is about Matt) He intially didn't want to be in my earlier stick animations because he claimed i kept killing him off, hence why he does not have a proper role in the earlier 'eddisodes' instead appearing as a cameo. But when i later asked if he wanted to appear and then die very early in Eddsworld Zombeh Attack, he was all up for it. Go figure.

I then met Tom online actually, shortly after i started making stick animations, he was actually a fan who had added me on a messaging service back when i did stick animations because he liked the animations i had posted on StickSuicide.com (now Explosm.net [www.explosm.net]) and he basically sat in my contact list for a long time, when Edd Again came out he started talking to me more, even sending fan art and his work (which was clearly a take on the style used in Edd Again) which he shortly fixed by adding a monobrow on the face (hence Tom's initial appearance). Then we carried on speaking and i didn't include Tom in any of my animations until late 2004 when i initiated him 'into the crew'. He was technically the first member too!

I then met Tord in a similar way to meeting Tom, only with Newgrounds. He liked one of my animations so we got talking and eventually i initiated him into the crew along with Tom. Originally he was to provide comics for the website, but was soon adapted into the crew in time for the Eddsworld Xmas Special 2004. Shortly after The Dudette Next Door, i had major computer problems and was using Internet cafes and all sorts to stay in contact, leaving Tom and Tord to discuss alone. Thus leading to both parties finding they didn't like each other too much, haha. But once i returned, things continued as usual! Tord 'left' right after Moving Targets was completed over three years ago, simply because he wished to pursue his own ambitions separately from the group.

So technically i'm the only thing linking these guys together!

And if you read all of that, i'm impressed.

Okay, please listen. Read this whole thing, for the sake of my sanity and your reputation. Please don't post chain comments. Listen to me because:

1. They are fake.
2. This is a magnificent post by an amazing person.
3. When you post a chain post, you are just showing that you are an ignorant little b****.
4. Some people actually care about this, and want to interact with others who care as well.
5. Copypasta is trash, and is for superstitious idiots.
6. It is very annoying and rude.

If you would not like to look like an idiot, a jerk, and a wimp. Please have respect and do NOT post chain comments. It's best for everyone.

This is an amazing journal from an amazing cartoonist! For those of you who have been posting that stupid copypasta like the ones below, please stop and have some ducking respect for Edd. This amazing guy died of cancer, and you are posting retarded chain-comments on one of his final works. That's just plain disrespectful.

If you are one of the people who have been posting copypasta online or youre about to, then DON'T DO IT ANYMORE. It's extremely annoying, extremely long, and extremely rude to some people, especially Edd.

Oh yeah, you know that copypasta that says "you'll DIE if you carry on reading"?
IT'S COMPLETE BULLCRAP. COPYPASTA IS ONLY FOR SUPERSTICIOUS NINCOMPOOPS. NOBODY DIES FROM SOME STUPID CHAINMAIL, IT'S POINTLESS TO KEEP COPYING AND PASTING SOME MESSAGE OVER AND OVER.

And to those of you who have been posting actually good comments, thank you for being part of a civilized society, and I hope we can keep passing on Edd Goud's legacy.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you (Idk if this real I just copied and pasted cause im scaredy cat)
