Step, Also browsing my post history I remembered this:

Haha I still have that in my music folder! I miss the Secret Santa; it's always held during Christmas period (obviously) and I'm often packed with work to do around that time. Then again I'm packed with work all the time so uh, whatever.

@Quarl remember this piece of crap?

Ok guys do we all remember Para?

Well...I guess he goes under the alias Emperor now....for those not familiar Emperor is a huge name in DnB

Can anyone confirm this though? Cuz that would make 1 more person to add to the famous newgrounds EDM list.

xKore, Space Laces, Emperor

It makes me happy.

Yeah... with epic brass like trumpets, horns, tubas, and bassoons x_x. Seriously, if I made that mistake in the present I'd cry about it and formally apologise.

I facepalmed at the part about using strings in the background and having loads of piano chords in a minor key. When comparing that with the NGADM review you just gave me, I can hardly believe that was you! Good job on growing over the years. XD

Catharsis. I've changed so much this last year alone that I don't at all recognize myself in the mirror.

Off any sort of topic, my friend Walker surprised me today by saying that he was in California. He drove all around the country with a few close friends. Anyone that remembers my whole "I was in a coma after spinning my car into a tree at 80 mph scapade" four years back would be interested to know that Walker was the passenger that day. Recap: I've known him my whole life and I haven't seen him in a year. So much has happened this last year alone and suddenly I don't feel safe posting my experiences here. So much to say...

Remember that scene in Billy Madison where Adam Sandler tells that kid to cherish his childhood by shaking him like crazy? That's how I feel right now.

glad to see people are making a name of themselves off of here :)

on a related note, I was wondering if any of you could help me raise some money, even adollar or two would be helpful.. there is a specific piece of hardware that I desire for music making.. but it's very expensive.. $1240.00 to be exact.. please donate whatever you can to my paypal - my paypal email is chronamut@msn.com - thank you!

I hate to solicit but with my partner in the physical health he is in right now a lot of my excess money is going to try to help him out.

In the past I suffered largely from pride. It consumed me until it became a self-devouring force and turned me into something I never imagined I could be. In my mind I just wanted to be remembered but in everyone elses mind I became a prideful vain egotistical asshole. Taking a big long break, finding my spiritual roots and doing a lot of personal self-development really helped me become a better person.

I do remember not liking your general elitist attitude and the likes a few years ago, but I already said in a previous post that I haven't felt any negativity about you in a good while. It's a pleasant change, mate. :)

While we're on the past selves train anyway, I remember back when I was an incomprehensibly bitter person around here. I kind of left for a while and just slipped back in but I'd like to make an apology to everybody on here who's mood I've ruined back then, didn't mean to be a complete arse. Couldn't quite deal with my own feels at the time. :x

Personally I haven't done any major self-development. Probably even made shit a lot worse, but hey, I've got music, weed and, on better days, a lounge full of cockjokes. Can't complain there now, can I?

we'll always have cockjokes dear. And the piccies thread :P

Also I was just in the right place at the right time music wise on here and that gave me a sense of entitlement that noone really stopped feeding over the years. I guess you could say I got a bit too involved in the game of life, but yeah you seem better these days too :)

I think I was also bitter for contributing so much to newgrounds and seeing everyone else around me get rewarded in some way or other for it and me getting nothing.. I feared I'd fade away and that all I did would be insignificant - seeing life as potential creativity oblivion is a hard thing to swallow.

Referral traffic

I was just looking at traffic sources in Google Analytics (as you do) and found some traffic coming from the NGAF, which then led me to find the audio battle that took place on page 7 of NGADM '13 round 1.

I think it's kinda brilliant that Instaudio was being used for shit like that.

So after I unpacked and registered for my new room... I went around town applying for jobs.

I was giving up hope, but as I walked into the Sonic and got the application, the manager told me to bring it back as soon as possible, in a desperate tone of voice.

HOORAY!!! I MIGHT GET MONEY!!!!

Removed facebook again, what a amateuristic crappy site lol.. atleast now i know.
It was also very invasive and useless to me personally, i truly cannot imagine why whole hordes of people want to be on that site all day long, i couldnt even bring myself to get on it more than twice a day when i was home (then again i have no mobile phone so i dont get on internet outside of my house to begin with).

Maybe because some user's have family member on there that they can't connect too by normal means so, facebook is the bridge of communication.

I use facebook to communicate with everyone, as well as teach info and partake in groups. I don't really see how it can be perceived as "amateuristic" when most of the world now uses it.

I think it's a solid site with a good layout and it's great to keep me updated on the stuff I want to keep myself updated on (games, music, etc). What I absolutely hate about it is how it's used nowadays. It discourages productivity so much it's ridiculous. Also, the Facebook chat is horrible. I don't get how some people prefer it over Skype. Skype has literally everything that the Facebook chat has (except that annoying "Seen at <time>" feature) and much much more.

Facebook = amazingly great and free advertising, a way to keep up with your fans, family, and friends on a day to day basis, and an overall fun to use experience with a lot of diversity. However, it certainly is privacy invasive, as your photos can ALWAYS be seen by anyone who knows what URL to type in. Just don't post pictures of your dick, save that for Newgrounds.

Perhaps but you can always mail your family members? I mean all i saw on facebook were truly pointless chatter going on, nothing intellectual.. just like people are bored and start to talk to you.. i dont even allow that irl so why would i let people intrude on me on the internet right? i like my peace and quiet when im at home, i even NEED it for inspiration to come to compose something, if every moment of the day i would be bothered by people who instead of having something important to say start chitchatting to you, where would i find the space to take in the world around you? Im so glad i dont have a phone to have that happen to me.

I greatly disagree with this, i found it to be a amateuristic layout, especially considering you cant make the background darker or customise it at all, wich hurts my eyes at the evening when i would check it, also agree with the skype thing wich i dont really use much, perhaps once half a year but as far as i remember it was a more friendly experience.
I never wanted to be 'updated' about 'other peoples music' i wanted to share my own music better, but facebook obviously isnt the site for that since you -again- cant customize anything and cant upload music to begin with so you'd have to 'link your works uploaded somewhere else seperately. Still Newgrounds takes the cake here, its absolutely and i dont say that to be popular (how am i ever popular anyway lol) best site i have ever seen on the interwebs for music sharing. It also never hurts my eyes, big plus.

I think i might actually activate skype some more since you make a good point about it tho, its kinda weird that i have had it for so long (2 or 3 years? ) and only used it like 5 times in my life or something lol.

To each their own. Facebook is great for me. I can mindlessly wind down by indulging in other people's posts. A lot of the time I do find something that interests me in an intellectual way, so maybe you take the other stupid stuff they post way too seriously or you're just friends with too many uninteresting people. And like said before, I can contact friends I can't normally contact so easily.

Naw I agree it looks ugly. There's a trend on many sites, Facebook certainly included, to turn the site into some minimalistic, high-contrast kind of design optimised for mobile devices, which I really don't appreciate, especially compared to the beautiful, detailed wallpapers we have here on Newgrounds, and the fact that everything is colour-coded yet still easy on the eyes. However, I find the LAYOUT of Facebook to be well-made. I find everything to be easily accessible and quick to get used to.

But yeah Newgrounds is, in my opinion, the best site on the Internet. Has its flaws, but damn, if a site can support forums, movies, games, audio, art, programming, voice-acting, reviewing, all the while encouraging collaboration and productivity so well, then it gets an A+ in my books.

Newgrounds is my social network of choice. I quit facebook the moment they became a publicly traded company, I could almost deal with government spying through facebook and the forceful oversharing that facebook encouraged and the vast collection of useless posts. I already knew that facebook sold my information to 3rd party advertisement agencies but the moment they went public, i decided there was no way i would let my information and privacy (what was left of it) go into the hands of clueless shareholders that would eventually become part of some board of directors that would get to help dictate what the company does with it.
