When I first came to newgrounds, I was a depressed 13 year old (I guess I tried to be in with 'the group', I guess) and when I saw how well known Paragonx9 was, I posted 'man, I don't see a point to this. If theres people like him, that leaves no room for people like him. I just don't feel like making music anymore, because no matter how hard I try, he will always be better, and always be more recognized'.
Which is true. I'm not very well known. But besides the point, LJCoffee helped me out that all of that, and thats one of the reasons why I repsect him so much.
Because he didnt simply say "LOLOMG SUCK IT UP EMO LOLOL".
Heh, when I came to NG, I just spent about the first couple years paying absolutely NO attention to the Audio Portal.
Then I heard Chronamut's song Glistle on some flash or other.
Made me check out the AP.
Following checking out teh AP, I brought my audio noobishness to the AF.
You guys remember that... :p
I noticed Paragon/Bounce and figured "Hell, I can do that!"
Anyways, after that, I downloaded a copy of FL 3.4 (teh demo version)! It didn't have the restriction on no saving/exporting, so that's what I used for my first, crappy songs.
Then I noticed I sucked.
Got a bit emo at that point, but Chron, Khus and RGH helped me out from the emoness
(plus I'm naturally about as emo as Richard Simmons.)
Still realized I sucked.
Then came FL 5. Got a bit better... still sucked.
And finally, decided to screw around in Reason (what I still use today.)
And I still suck. :D
