They were more for the flash animations which is actually what you're meant to be fucking doing if you're on Newgrounds. :P A few of them are familiar with the whole incident with Sirtom, though and one even liked Dickneck.
Yeah, my friends at school going on NG for the flash content was what got me into the site originally. Nobody besides myself seemed interested in making an account, though, for some reason. Did the Sirtom incident get much media attention over there? If I wasn't around on NG when that all happened I probably wouldn't even have heard about it. lol

The incident with Sirtom did get on the BBC News website but it wasn't on TV. Maybe in the North East region it was mentioned but I heard nothing on TV for the local news.

I used to talk shit against bronies but I don't even have that right anymore. First it was because I officially made myself part of the furry fandom and signed up to FurAffinity, then it was myself watching through an entire MLP parody series on YouTube because of my ex constantly spewing jokes from it and lastly, the pony cosplay that I agreed to and went to a fancy dress party as.
Pony cosplay? If you weren't so awesome I would be thinking less of you right now. :P

The fact that it was a set up by her and she's not with me now should make me regret doing that but when I made the agreement, I only have myself to blame. Still, I tried to do a lot for her.

unless they're the sick fucks who have sexual fantasies over them. Keep in mind internet, a pony is a child form of a horse...
I thought that was an essential part of bronydom for most? Though I am ignorant to the subject, I must confess.

I know one guy who's a brony but utterly hates the rule 34 aspect of it. I give him respect for that. For those that actually masturbate to it, there certainly isn't something right about them. OK, so I could masturbate to dragon porn but at least it wouldn't be some child-looking dragons I'd look up.

Wait, what did I just admit to? :O
The name alone should give you a hint.
Yeah, it does. And I don't want to know anything more beyond the image my mind has conjured up. :P

And you don't. I'm just glad I know to keep a distance away from them. Some might show up at local meets but I'm still going to be weary of them. For now, I'll just find the cool individuals over on Twitter. I get my best interactions there.

I could talk trash about the anime part of it all day long due to horrendous writing and cliches. Come to think about it, if I was to ever watch either of them, it would only be from the abridged parodies.
The writing was pretty terrible, I wont disagree there. But who watches DBZ for the writing, anyway? That show was 100% about the action; the plot was more like a necessary afterthought that just got recycled every saga. lol I'd say watch everything from the Sayian Saga through the Cell Games -after that it kinda starts losing it, if you ask me. Oh, and the movies are damn terrible, don't even bother with them.

Well, if I did have the time to watch it. I should try and watch through more Doctor Who but now I'm thinking of getting into Game of Thrones. The amount of dragon posts I see that's related to that show is making me want to give it a shot.

You could be considered the most attractive woman in the whole wide world but if you can't get along with my major interests, then I have no desire to love a person like that.
Certainly not love, but maybe some other things, perhaps. ;)

Well then... :o Nah, even if a woman walked into my room right now and asked me for all the sex she wanted, even though we had absolutely nothing in common, I just don't think I would take it on. I'd rather dedicate myself to one who truly knows me and loves me. Then again, knowing that I can be desperate at times, I'd probably fall for it depending on my mood...

I used to think I was asking too much from a love partner but a few simple things like that, it can't be that bad and surely there's plenty out there that fit under that criteria.
It's certainly possible. That's why I suggest looking to find social groups that match some of your interests, as your bound to find like minded people there. Just finding a girl in day to day life seems like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but being lucky enough to find one that's like you? Damn, you need the internet for that shit. :P

Tumblr seems to be a good opportunity to find people with common interests. Well, if more were better with filling in their about info, it would be a lot better. I have my favourite search results such as dragons, Monty Python and plushies (although that gives me tons of ponies, lol) so if I find some potentially good individuals, I'll give them a follow.

Perhaps I can wander around on Last.fm as well. I was well involved with the community part of the site years back but that was ages ago. Maybe I can pick it up again and see who I could actually come across on my searches. I don't think there's much else to check on the internet for the time being so I'll keep up with my Tumblr exploring.

I actually feared that if I ended the relationship with her, she wouldn't even want to see me again and it would cause problems with seeing those that we both know. Thankfully that hasn't been the case and we're still in speaking terms. As said before, she's handled the break up much better than the last few.
Yeah, the fallout of a relationship (or the creation of one for that matter) can sometimes cause some collateral damage. Looks like you lucked out.

I have to agree. Recently a couple that many of us here knew very well broke up and they got engaged last year. To those two it's an even bigger shock to them what happened. I don't know all the exact details so I can't say for myself if this was just a general break up or something. I feel with my situation we were just hit with an unfortunate circumstance which I don't think actually made the final call on whether we were right together or not. She was just under stress and couldn't cope with it anymore. Potentially getting back together could work but I know I shouldn't build my hopes. I keep telling myself that but my brain and feelings just don't keep me 100% stable.

Roommates are never something I've had to worry about but then again, being stuck with parents even at the age of 22 isn't so grand either but what can I do about it?
It's tough out there these days, for sure. Hopefully you'll be able to land a good enough job to support yourself. If not, hey, there's always roommates. ;)

I'm not one for wanting to mooch off others. It's probably bad enough I'm still living here but it's a lose-lose situation here.

The funny thing is, I actually tried to invite them all to my 18th birthday. It wasn't a problem for the teachers to be there but those old friends, only three managed to show up.
You invited your teachers? Not a chance I would do a thing like that. :P

I'm actually quite fond of some of them. However, my mum did insist at one point to invite those from the secondary school but I did make a strong statement against that. At least I had it my way since after all, it was my fucking birthday party.

Some I could possibly chase up on Facebook but it's been over a decade since they last saw me and I'd be amazed if they could recognise me now. Compare me to when I was 9 years old, it's a major difference.
That's really cool that some did show up, though. It must have been a really cool experience to see those people after such a long time.

It was only the odd one sadly but it was still worth a shot. You just gotta give these things a try. I'm still pondering on the idea of tracking them down on Facebook and attempt to add them all there.

It's really bad when they have to be immature and make homophobic comments. Even if you two were gay, what's their fucking business? Schools can be hit and miss with how they handle those that get ridiculed with such comments but in this modern age there better be a zero tolerance policy on homophobia.
I wouldn't even have called it homophobia, as I never felt any sort of hate from those kids. They were just incredibly immature/bored, I guess. I guess they just felt like pestering us because we were really close friends and weren't part of their "cool" clique. (The funny thing is, our friendship eventually came to an end when a girl came between us!) LOL

If it did turn out you were gay, I wouldn't have been surprised if they bullied you some more. That to me is how some idiots in school are like.

Hah, I can do all the burning with my own throat. Amazing, isn't it? Too bad I'm not doing it as often as I'd like. :P
Maybe you can use some of that time you're not updating stat lists and go on a rampage or two? :P

Yes, it's good practice time!

It's probably bad that I still have a grudge against her over that even to this day but if you're meant to be the management for those with disabilities of any kind and that's how you feel was right to treat someone who was under stress, you have no fucking idea what you're doing with your job and you should have been fired. If this ever happens to my child, there'd be a shitstorm for sure.
I'd still hold a grudge, too, if it were me. Hell, that seems like one of those memories that would be tough to forget. :\

And they say you could do a hundred good things to them but they'll remember the one bad thing more than anything. Even so, some actions are inexcusable.

If we're still cool with each other despite the events, I can't see why we can't. It might be a while before I see her in person, though but when we do I'm sure we'll enjoy seeing each other again.
Sometimes I think about how much it sucks that I'll most likely never see a lot of the people from my past again. (Exes, old school friends or what have you.) That's why I'm happy it worked out the way it did for you guys. :)

Yeah, there's too many that I couldn't get back to simply because we moved on to different schools. This is why I'm wanting to see if finding that old group of friends on Facebook could do something potentially good. Nothing wrong with an old face saying hi.

lol! Well, that's a constructive hobby, I guess... 0.o

But hey, that's what people aged 18-25 are like. Shame I'm halfway through that age group already. I still look at myself and think how much more I could have done at this point but at least my social life is better than ever.

And here I wonder what happened if I took the other path in the fork and got myself addicted to World of Warcraft instead of making flash animations.
Why, you would have met an enchanting night elf and lived happily ever after in Warcraft land, of course! (Probably could have done more with that, if I actually knew anything about Warcraft.) lol

That could have possibly happened but I'm really not one for the monthly subscriptions for WoW so it won't be happening.

There was a certain point in my life when I could have been addicted to WoW but I managed to get out of it while I was ahead. Could I have met someone on there just like what happened to my sister?
God, I'm kinda glad I never got into WoW. You see, I have an addictive personality when it comes to nerdy stuff like that. (b/p'ing on NG is an excellent example.)

I know that feeling but at least I'm wearing thin on NG now and I'm using the internet more for social purposes and for contact... oh, and reblogging random crap all day long.

It probably would have consumed my life to the point where I was reduced to a basement-dwelling goblin, living off Doritos and Mountain Dew who's only source of light is a computer screen. XD

I think I may have spent enough time on NG already but it's not easy when you can't be going outside the house all the time.

This kind of alternative reality is possible in a parallel universe somewhere. Yes, I'm the kind of fool that believes in sci-fi mumbo jumbo as that. ;D Anything is possible, you know?
The Multiverse is no joke, my friend. :P There is a Bahamut who played WoW and doesn't even have a Newgrounds account. And there's another who has an vast collection of Easy Listening music and loathes metal! lmao

And perhaps a Bahamut who much prefer humans and hates dragons. Maybe there's a version of myself where I actually watch loads of American sitcoms and not so much on Britcoms. There could be one of me where I'm a chav (god forbid). Perhaps I was an animator along the lines of Adam Phillips. So many possibilities... Oh yeah, don't forget one where I'm actually a dragon. :P

Speaking of dating sites, I have been looking into them lately. I know I was cynical because it doesn't take much to pretend to be someone but you know what, it doesn't hurt to try. It's kinda like searching for a job on the internet. Chances are most of them are non-existent anyway but either you sit there and do nothing and earn nothing at all as a result OR, you could actually try and approach them and see what happens. The worst that would happen is hearing nothing in return or them simply saying they're not all that interested in you. The latter might be bad to hear but if they know so little about you anyway, it won't be such a huge loss. Just try again and find someone else.
That's the way you need to look at it, I think. I mean, you're odds of finding a relationship online are way better then if you don't make any effort at all. Seems like most dating sites ask for specific turn-ons/turn-offs, so you should be able to find someone you click with, though it'll probably take a bit of trial and error -just stick with it! :P

I think some sites can be over-specific and too personal with yourself but from what I've seen, I can easily tell who are potential matches and who I wouldn't even touch with a ten foot pole. What I've been liking about date searching the most is that I am truly going by personality. I look up certain keywords and if what they say about themselves sounds good, the second thought is their appearance. This is of course a lower priority but their looks do have some factor on whether I would be with them or not.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head with the trial and error comment. So far it's feeling like that. I have attempted to message some of them but most haven't responded back. I'm not the most experienced with this thing so I can only try.

You know, I've always feared that by attempting to talk to women and see if I could ask them out, I'd only be seen as some stalker or a sex predator but if you're gonna advertise yourself on dating websites and you're looking for a partner of whatever gender, clearly there's no stalking there if all you're gonna do is try and talk to them.
I've often felt the same thing, especially when there's no easy opening to spark up a conversation without sounding awkward or like a total creep. XD

That's been another problem of mine. I want to comment on what I like about them but it can feel like I'm overdoing it. I suppose sticking to the one thing or two that catches my attention about them helps. If they reply back, great! Try developing that conversation and then lead onto other things.

A recent strong statement to myself is if I don't ask, I simply don't get. I just gotta make these attempts and see if they would be willing to see me. Sure, despite finding them on DATING SITES, I'm not expecting to go on a date straight away but we have to get to know each other first.
It's the quickest way to get yourself out there, and hey, at least you know everyone on there is looking for a date and doesn't already have a damn boyfriend. (Or at least you hope they don't.) :P

It would be shit of them to be doing it when they're already with someone, unless things weren't working out for them. The only thing is that I'm not the only one who's looking for a date out there so I do have competition... This is really sounding more and more like the job market.

What I'd like to do first is talk to them a bit and see how things progress. Generally I'd like to see that we can speak to each other on Facebook for general contacts and Skype to have a video chat somewhere down the line. Video chat is easily the best way to prove that they're legit.
Yeah, strangely enough, I always thought talking online (even just using IM, or something) served as a good way to "break the ice" with people, albeit on a pretty superficial level. Though I suppose when you're talking about a potential date, some kind of video chat would be required, as you said.

Well with an IM contact you can pretend to be anyone so something like Facebook is far more genuine and video chat is the final thing to make yourself sure.

So yeah, online dating shouldn't be all that bad. I may not have much experience with it right now but it can't be all that bad. If I keep looking out, who knows what an amazing individual I can find!
Good luck, and feel free to let us know how your endeavors turn out. :)

So far not so grand. They say one of things is to mention on your profile is hopes and aspiration but I'm such a talentless guy that I really can't say much about that. Maybe if I was in a job, I could easily say that and put that down but right now I have nothing. I know not every woman is going to care about that kind of thing but it seems most do and if I don't say much about that, it feels like I'm stuck in the mud. Fair enough, they would like to know that they are going out with a guy who has solid future plans but not everyone is fortunate enough to be in employment or studying.

I've not been doing this for so long so maybe I just need to give it time. Another potential problem is the distance. I can understand a local distance is preferrable but some just need to look beyond their region and go for someone who lives around 100 miles away or so. If my sister has done that to meet with her now fiance and if my friend's brother is going to marry someone in America, many others can too go for long distance relationships just to find THE one. I know not everyone will be up for it but if you don't have much luck with your local area, you should at least consider looking beyond the surroundings of your area. I will only go as far as within Great Britain, although I would much rather live elsewhere.

She seems to want to steal them and then go back home. D:
Well, that's just shallow. :P

Eh, I think I'm used to women wanting to steal things from me. My ex had her fun with stealing my hair bobbles as she thought I looked a lot better with my hair down but at times I really needed to tie my hair back but then she'll just take them. Mind you, she still has some of my bobbles and claims I'll get them back at some point.

It's funny how the whole thing with my hair down started off at a party we were both at but she was too shy to say it to my face so she got a friend of hers to say it to me instead. I took the compliment for granted since anything people like about me I would like to keep up to make both ends happy. Because of that, whenever she is around I must have my hair down, otherwise I'm getting hell from her. However, since we're not together anymore, she doesn't quite have the full authority over my hair, even though this thing traits back to when she was in her previous relationship before going out with me.

Well, I may end up making my activity minimal but I'll have to check here every so often.
It's always a good place to chat every once in a while, even if you aren't super active overall.

I agree with that. Like I said, even if I do make a lot of cutbacks on the site, I'm still going to be around for this thread, unless everyone I know here is gone.

I keep meaning to retire them at milestones but it's a matter of if I feel like keeping it going now.
How many are you still depositing for these days? You could always just focus on depositing for the couple that are near and dear to you. ;)

I'm now only depositing for the one guy. All my alts have been put to a halt for at least two weeks now. I know I could try and put them on retirement counts but I don't even want to bother with that. With how I'm feeling about Newgrounds nowadays, I can see that one day I will give depositing on my main account a rest once and for all. This isn't something I can keep up with forever.

You passed 66,000 Saves. Way to go!

Because of the condition of the portal, do save milestones even count as achievements since saves are much easier to obtain and high saves are frowned upon?

Keep in mind that I never watched Star Trek,
Ok, then take Star Wars instead. "Many Bothans died...". So, are the Bothans a "race of master spies"? How should that work out? Who would hire a bothan chef, for example? It's clear that he's a spy...
Actually, Star Wars is a good one. Earth isn't even acknowledged in the stories, unless it is somewhere beyond the films.

Yes. Taking a bike with you in a bus or a train sucks.

Never herd of Merseyside before. And I only know Cheshire because of a certain cat (and I think there's a Square by that name in Los Angeles).
Merseyside is the county I live in, although Wirral can be considered a county of its own. It's generally used over Merseyside for county on address forms.

I see. I thought The Wirral only was the name of the peninsula.

If desktops are dying, how do you explain the Steam community? Many will still play games on standard computers, although I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere down the line they start trying out adapting tablet games on there.

Just imagine playing a game like TF2 on a touchscreen...

It may look futuristic but this is set far away from Earth so it can be a long time ago.

Yes. Taking a bike with you in a bus or a train sucks.

Well, you could easily avoid buses if you have a bicycle but a train you can at least adapt to. I have seen people taking bikes with them on trains and it's acceptable. However, the one real problem is cycling at night in the scummy streets of Birkenhead. Not wise at all.

Merseyside is the county I live in, although Wirral can be considered a county of its own. It's generally used over Merseyside for county on address forms.

It is. In my definitions it also means "wasteland".

It may look futuristic but this is set far away from Earth so it can be a long time ago.

But Luke sure does look like a human from earth. This seems to mislead many people.

I'd cycle to places but I should first see if my bike can work again. Then again, I much prefer to walk and bringing my bike over to Liverpool and back can be a bit of a task.
Yes. Taking a bike with you in a bus or a train sucks.
Well, you could easily avoid buses if you have a bicycle but a train you can at least adapt to. I have seen people taking bikes with them on trains and it's acceptable. However, the one real problem is cycling at night in the scummy streets of Birkenhead. Not wise at all.

Sometimes it's just too far to cycle, so you have to take the bus. Or when it's raining cats and dogs... I usually try to avoid the bus if I have my bike with me, though

Merseyside is the county I live in, although Wirral can be considered a county of its own. It's generally used over Merseyside for county on address forms.
I see. I thought The Wirral only was the name of the peninsula.
It is. In my definitions it also means "wasteland".

Funny. I wear my "Greetings from the Wasteland!" shirt right now.

If desktops are dying, how do you explain the Steam community? Many will still play games on standard computers, although I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere down the line they start trying out adapting tablet games on there.
Just imagine playing a game like TF2 on a touchscreen...
I never even want to imagine playing TF2 without mouse and keyboard. The thought of playing it on console makes me ill.

Yeah, there are some games that you simply cannot play with a controler. But I think most FPS on XBOX, PS3 etc are pretty good when it comes to the controls.

I suppose we all needed a character who we could all relate to. If we're going to go back to that space exploring thing, maybe there's a co-incidence where there's another planet that has humans similar to us but with different aspects to them.

I'd rather cycle and avoid using the bus. My friend actually cycles from Liverpool to Manchester. It takes 3 hours for him.

It is. In my definitions it also means "wasteland".

Well that's a lie. No-one will or should ever be welcomed to the Wirral.

I suppose they can adapt but again, PC controls are superior. Metroid Prime is a huge exception because it IS played to be on a console and it's not a true FPS game. It takes on some elements.

That's a distance I wouldn't cycle too often... but I may use my bike to get to work. It's about 15km, which can be cycled in one hour.

It is. In my definitions it also means "wasteland".

I love that album. Some of the tunes in there are great for helping me down the motorway to work and back.
I like the album as a whole. It's still 5-star material to me. I thought with development of my musical interests would put them behind but they're still good to go back to, unlike Korn...

And I still look back at it and think, "You know what, someone out there did have an enjoyable time with me, even if it was briefly."

There you go. That's positive and for me that would be impetus to share myself with someone else soon.

But Bahamut only puts down album titles and Chop Suey! is on Toxicity.
And that shows how long and well you know me Coop! ;)

The best two songs on the album in my opinion are Chop Suey! and Bounce! According to my metadata, the songs that I've listened to the most are Chop Suey! and Prison Song.

My mother was a witch, she was burned alive.
Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried.
Take her down now, don't want to see her face
All blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace.

I prefer a poem that I learned when I was very young:

"Here lies the body of our old MP,
Who promised the earth to you and me.
Her promises she never did fulfil,
And now the rotter's dead,
And lying still!"

The week ahead will come with some challenges. While I will be going to London to see Helloween and Gamma Ray live and then Sonata Arctica the following day, I will need to settle with a few circumstances. The first condition in mind is that my future brother-in-law's parents are here for three weeks and they'll be sleeping at the flat so there'll be five of us there. Although the new flat is bigger than their old one, both bedrooms will be occupied so it's a matter of sleeping on an air mattress for a few nights.

Second condition, no internet connection at the flat. They don't get their new internet until the following week so when I'm in the flat during the daytime, I'll need to find something else to do to pass the time but thankfully I know what to do and that will be watching a bunch of DVDs and Adventure Time. I still have Monty Python's Flying Circus to go through and I also have a few Doctor Who DVDs to watch so that should be enough to occupy myself before heading out for the live shows.

Despite these few conditions to deal with for the next few days, it should be worth it for the shows!

Considering how she treated the north here... Really can't justify the bitch. There were celebrations all over Liverpool when the news was confirmed. That's how much she was (and still is) despised around here.

Yeah, that really is troublesome. I'm sorry for even bringing up the idea. XD
You silly dragon! :P

Ah well, that just makes me a lazy mod.

Quite. It's really had a bad time this week and it still feels like shit. I've been thinking about my life way too much. I really don't know what good I'm doing out there.
I guess everyone has to go through a phase like this at some point in their lifes. :/

Those thoughts are really eating at me right now. Here I am going to be 23 in a few months time and if my life can't progress soon, there won't be any care for me due to my age at a later stage.

I suppose we all needed a character who we could all relate to. If we're going to go back to that space exploring thing, maybe there's a co-incidence where there's another planet that has humans similar to us but with different aspects to them.
That's what I liked about the Hitchhiker's Guide. Arthur Dent actually was an earthling, but he still traveled to some weird places.

I really should read that book, even though I'm not much of a reader.

I'd rather cycle and avoid using the bus. My friend actually cycles from Liverpool to Manchester. It takes 3 hours for him.
That's a distance I wouldn't cycle too often... but I may use my bike to get to work. It's about 15km, which can be cycled in one hour.

I wouldn't mind giving that kind of distance a shot but only if I go little by little. I only wish there was a way to walk through to Liverpool but there isn't so I'm forced to pay to get over there. It would be nice if there was a walkway to get over there and back but it would be years off to build something like that. There was proposals for a bridge between the two destinations but it didn't work out since boats come in and out all the time. An underground tunnel walkway would be nice but I imagine it was troublesome enough just to build the two tunnels from the last century alone.

I suppose they can adapt but again, PC controls are superior. Metroid Prime is a huge exception because it IS played to be on a console and it's not a true FPS game. It takes on some elements.
A keyboard can come in handy, but I think games like GTA are better with a controller.

They are. I tried GTA on PC. Controls for air vehicles outright suck. Everything else wasn't so bad, though.

Get self-titled! Mezmerize and Hypnotize are also good records despite what some SOAD fans may say.

And I still look back at it and think, "You know what, someone out there did have an enjoyable time with me, even if it was briefly."
There you go. That's positive and for me that would be impetus to share myself with someone else soon.

Even though at this point I can no longer understand what my ex is doing with herself. I swear, her personality changes every so often and it's hard to even keep up with what she wants to do in life. She could have had a better focus on her life and stuck to it with me. I would have accepted her vows but too late for that now. I tried helping her out whenever possible but it was all thrown back at me so I don't see why I should accept her help now when she couldn't listen to me back then. She's ruined me and I don't know if I even want to be friends with her anymore.

Also, apparently in the last 9 days I've gained 3000 total points, because Newgrounds Logs says I just passed 50,000 points and now have 52,003. That seems seriously wrong, because I've only gained 376 B/P in that time and I really don't post that much. So either something got miscalculated, or something had been getting miscalculated for the longest time and just got fixed. Anyone have some insight?

A few notes:

1. No more Bahamut. Name became less and less attached to me and it's something I'm gonna put behind me. Was gonna go with another name but this one keeps what I do on here separate from everything else easier.

2. I've given up the friendship with my ex. She was far too much trouble from the start and hardly expresses any feelings for me now. She has more for her partner before dating me than myself. That says it all, really.

3. I shall enjoy the live shows approaching tomorrow and Wednesday!

I always feel a bit sad when users change their name. Mostly because I always get confused when I see posters with 10k+ posts yet I don't remember their name.
