hmm that's a little disappointing.. I remember last year there seemed to be a momentum carried on where people were running contests left right and center.. I was hoping that momentum was still going..

Contests have pretty much been put off indefinately as the NG store no longer exists, so prizes really can't be handed out anymore.

inb4 @Bosa

I should run a contest and hand out old gear I dont use much. Any of this sound worthy of a contest?

Presonus TubePre Preamp
Korg Nanopad Midi Controller
Behringer Mic200 Tube Preamp

First place gets first pick, second place second pick, and so on. Maybe toss in first place gets a copy of either David Gibsons The Art of Mixing or Owsinski's Mixing Engineers handbook.

Would that generate a crowd we think?

er can't they just do cash prizes like other contests? I know back in the day they even used to give out game systems and stuff. That is a little discouraging. Does that mean things like the pumpkin carving contests will be abolished too?

*is sad*

and yeah that would be cool if audio peeps donated things for prizes :)

hmm I suppose I should update you guys on what I've been doing in my absence..

did some soul searching.. wrote a book that apparently oprah read.. have a bf of over a year now.. I'll link a pic of him.. became a spiritual leader, was an admin/mod on the site spirit science with jordan from newgrounds, then founded my own group, sell holistics products, and display my art in galleries and in a couple weeks will be showcasing my art during world pride in toronto, so I've been moving on and up in the world :)

here's my boy big richie - we're almost the same height

The real reason they stopped doing contests is because they were tired of me winning everything. Newgrounds pretty much supported me financially, so something had to change. That is something to bear in mind.

Work

Went to a job today and this guy who showed me what I was to do after the last order was finished was like, "I got 100 of these units processed in 3 hours yesterday," and I go on to process 200 units in 2 hours (give or take several minutes), lol. Did 500 by the end of the work day. Boss was impressed.

I guess a couple hundred bucks of gear and books isn't really enticing enough then. I was hoping for some excitement. Are we all getting old or what?

I thought it was really easy. I knocked out 25 units roughly every 15 minutes (give or take, depending on circumstances), but this is probably because I had a processing system set up that was better than the other guy's. Even if it was a psychological tactic, these guys have been good to me in the past and pay well, so I don't see a reason to not work hard.

Oh, I've been living in extreme poverty since 2013, being forced to live with (mooch off of) other people since we lost our home due to my wife's workplace going under. Became a born again Christian and am cleaning myself up. I was going to work for Harley Davidson, then my car went kaput. Got a new car and have been working temp jobs when they're available to support my wife and two kids. Aaaand I'm going in a lounge/chillout direction with my music and am currently working on a Christian chillout album.

Also cut my long hair off.
