Hey there everyone, DeepRising here with the Weekly News Letter and Weekly Topic competition. Don't forget to check out next week's topic theme and the subsequent Upcoming Topics, at the end of the News Letter. And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Australia". Well done to everybody who entered.
An encounter with a huge, hairy spider, in Australia, leads to a serious problem, when it's mother turns-up, in this hilarious entry by SimonSK. The brilliantly performed voice audio track, had us rolling about with laughter for ages. Nice one!
A koala bear uses a magical remote-control, to switch off the Australian bush fires, in this imaginative Flipnote, by Cosmirage. What a brilliant idea!
Link from Zelda, is paying a visit to Australia, in this lovely animated drawing, by Sqwidgirly. It looks like he's made some outback friends, but watch out for those bush fires.
Ground Hog Day is a tradition celebrated in Canada and the United States, on February 2nd. An furry mammal called a Ground Hog predicts, either the coming of an early Spring, or six more weeks of Winter, based on whether or not he sees a shadow, and returns to his den.
There is of course also a movie by the same name. A personal favorite of mine, it's set on Ground Hog Day itself, and tells the story of Phil Connors, a reporter who keeps waking up to the same morning of Ground Hog Day, over and over again, stuck in an endless time loop that he cannot escape from.
This Topic could be about the Ground Hog tradition itself, or the idea of an endless time loop, like the movie. It's up to you!
