Fuuuuu...dge.

Totally undeserved. This guy obviously upvotes his own songs and zero bombs those of others with alternate accounts, piloted by spam bots.

You must have been off that day. The classical section was split up, so now if you go to other > you'll see that there is a cinematic genre. Where you'll find us. :)

Lol. I'm sure SourJovis was being sarcastic. It would be funny if one does believe Bosa has done all these.

Right, Bosa?

I'm confused here. Are you saying he's great, or not that great? I find him average, a 7 out of 10. I really don't find his work all that great, it's good, but not that good.

Seth I'd try to be a little more humble before critiquing others, I heard your one unscouted track you put up, and all I have to say is you have a way to go.

Production isn't all about having something that fits your top 10 beatport releases or sounding like it belongs in the orchestral segment of a James Cameron movie.

It's about finding your sound, your individuality and learning how to step outside of the norm and do you. Not only that, but it's also about learning how sound works and understanding the engineering part as well. Really music production is two different arts going on at once, you have the notation (your composition aspect) and then the engineering. Both aspects are very difficult to master, and I mean years upon years of practice and learning. People can try and slap on a cheap compressor or use rompler strings or samples, but to the people who can tell and know better, you aren't fooling them.

So, show a little respect, no one ever kicked it off well with the AP community by stepping on toes right as they came through the door.

Okay, to clear things up; that was just a joke about Bosa. Sorry to have caused such a confusion. I expected everyone here to know Bosa well enough to get it. Bosa is awesome and other musicians in the cinematic genre don't even deserve to be in his shadow.

I wasn't going to say anything about this, but I don't want a flame war to start here so no one will get in trouble. Easy guys. I want this contest to be fun. We all have our opinions, I think the best thing to do is respect them, even if it's respectfully disagreeing! All this over one musician who may or may not claim he is better than everyone? Bosa was joking, but yes, we should not step on each others toes indeed as mentioned.

Haha, I guess some people don't get Bosa's humor and get confused, and that's ok! But I guess I had to make it clear to the world since it wasn't understandable to some.

Well I guess we all know what time it is!

Dangit. Just as I made an alternate account to really drive the joke home and say this about my previous message:

"Don't believe this. I'm the real SourJovis. the message above aren't my own words. I'm posting this message from an alternate account, because Bosa's spam bots have hacked mine. It's them who wrote the previous message."

But I suppose it's run its course and I'd better stop before it gets out of hand. Oh well. Onward with the competition then.

No, I don't mean he's bad, I just think he was a little cocky? I mean, look at his posts.

I left some stuff out there :/ don't care about my other posts on this matter. What I mean to say, ignore my other posts, is first of all: Cross, yeah I'm saying he's good, maybe it's just me, but I've heard better. I'm not trying to say he's bad, he's really good, but... *sigh*.
:I'm sorry

Ha, yes. But he was only kidding. He does that all the time. He deserves some counteract though. So don't worry.

You can have the coolest most superific individual swerve hit song, but the most "unique" will be mine.

I must do one more track, because I hooked up the creator of cyght on the possibility that I'll score one more of his arts and now I don't feel assholish enough to let him down.

All jokes aside, you all are awesome. I honestly feel honored to have been a part of this community for all these years, and posting music on here is just a small percentage of my purpose on Newgrounds. I really want to help other artists grow and prosper in this community.

Before I find a way to delete my Newgrounds account, I hope that I will at least be able to help one person find their place in the future of musical genius. Regardless of how crappy my stuff sounds, I always feel the need to help someone reach the level where they want to be. So if anybody around here needs me for anything, just contact me at anytime.

But anyways, enough of my personal beliefs. LET'S ROCK THIS CONTEST YOUSE GUYZ!!

I'm watching you, sourjovis...


Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength
