Been on Newgrounds almost 10 years now.... so much I've gone through... and I didn't even start to check this forum until 4 years ago, started to contribute audio 3 or so years ago, and started to mod it last year.

sorry for being a slow submitter...

There's this weird, sad feeling when you stumble upon an amazing song that drops your jaw as you realize you'll never be able to compose that exact thing. It's ... "taken".

Hey guys . Update on my life I guess .

Was a neet for 2 years. Didn't go outside very often, just played league and made shitty music. Had no job, friends fading away and life just sucked in general.

At one point I literally just said fuck it, moved to St. Louis . The rave scene here is fucking awesome , met people through after parties that have a thing called batfam where we are family and we look out for each other. That's how I found a job at a factory.

However, I'm broke till I get paid on friday . haven't eaten a full meal in 3 days and honestly this is helping a lot with my shitty bipolar now that I'm being an "adult". Am more motivated than ever to work each day.

I have a new family , new life and a new girl I've become friends with that helps me out with my anxiety by cuddling, hand holding, that cute stuff we aren't even dating and respect her so much for helping me out like this. First girl to accept me for who I am.

So yeah that's about it so far. That's the reason why I deleted my tracks cause I am a completely new person now .

Love you guys :)

Taking a dump could mean anything. Did you go to the recycling yard and dump rubbish? Did you get back from a shitty day at work and dump all your things and sit in front of the TV? Did you get dumped from relationship?

Details man. Details.

I'm going to guess you're were probably massively under-charging for your services. That or your client is just really generous.

Probably both. I was charging $5 for the mixing (it was a quick job). I don't usually charge very much for it, especially when there's only two vocal tracks and about 2 minutes of singing.

Skrillex didn't use Massive, and look, he's a pro!

Question: why do you need 7 mics? What are you planning to record?

Isn't this basically what Trent Reznor does/did? I remember reading somewhere they he sampled everything himself.

If it's not working for you, you might want to get in contact with @BrenTheMan if you haven't tried using an alternative browser to get through to the verification.

Oh right, the using another browser thing...I always forget about that. Well nevermind.

Great. Got all my new vocal crap set up yesterday and waited all day through a horrible day to use it only to have apathy and an inability to enjoy what I'm doing or let go and sing. Writers block too.

Also didn't have the greatest father's day.

I got it too, which reminded me I made a dedicated gmail account for my NG account some 4 years ago, which I of course haven't signed into in 4 years. Turns out I was invited to help judge musician of the year 2012, which wasn't something that was sent using the NG PM system for some reason.

I've now deleted that gmail account and just started using my main gmail account (which has 2 factor auth anyway) for it.

So... When I scout audio artists I can get removed from the art portal?

Fair enough.
