I don't know if that would have been my choice for third, it seems like the NAC's are really just a popularity contest.

Either way, I enjoyed having the opportunity to listen to some really good music. So congrats to the Top Eight, and good job everyone for producing some great tracks.

wrong. The NACs are a contest of TALENT - its just that those those are really popular are usually BECAUSE they are really talented - the point of the NACs is to raise the bar.. so you say to youtself.. "man, if I really try hard.. maybe I can topple that guy who always wins because he always puts 110% into his submissions."

sadly I found a lot of the submissions to be a bit lacking in quality. Hamstercake's was stellar though.

Either way, I enjoyed having the opportunity to listen to some really good music. So congrats to the Top Eight, and good job everyone for producing some great tracks.

indeed!

If this was a popularity contest then i think i would be disqualified immediately. I respect everybody's opinions but yeah maybe my music is pretty cheap or sucks, but they are my kids and i must love them.


Music is my passion , not my business.

Hamstercake was a bit of a shoe-in for first place but pretty well deserved it.

Good job to everyone else!

I don't think so. I'd say you're most likely in the Top 25 most popular artists on NewGrounds.

Not at all what I meant in my original comment -- I wasn't trying to pick on you, but when I started writing my comment, the Top 2 hadn't been posted yet :P I like all the tracks that you post, a lot, but I also like being surprised: I felt like the Top 3 were pretty much 'as expected.'

To be frank I knew hamstercake would win this one. Every song of his so far was adapted to the NAC theme incredibly well, and each time the song was high-quality and very well-made. Heavenly Inc. is no exception.

Congrats to all the winners!

tbh It was a close call between him and mrmilkcarton - but it's probably a good thing he won or else I woulda gotten a horde of people saying OMG HAMSTERCAKE TOTALLY SHOULDA WON!!

so yeah.. you win the next one tho hamstercake and imma throw you out hahaha

hamstercake was a good choice. Mrmilkcarton's song didn't have as much variation as he did.

Gratz to all.

Lol NAC a popularity contest? Last month people were saying everyone who was popular was being voted out because of it. Its just whatever the judges like man, its not related.

PS - I want hamstercake's babies.

yes, you and hamstercake, moreso than anyone else really scrutinized the criteria and adjusted accordinly - I believe everyone else could learn from your example. If I post criteria in a contest, untimately I will favour those who follow it the closest.

lol thanks man.. I'm trying to keep a consistant look for all the sigs now.. just text change colour change and bg changes at this point..

I do like the idea that all 4 placement sigs combine to form one picture though.
