Happy New Year's, you collectively funky pile of nipples and toothpaste.

I hope none of you remain under the abject tyranny of sobriety.

Hey babes, I unscouted someone with a fairly large tree and I have below a list of all the people who he'd scouted, if you'd like give me a hand in picking them back up. Use your own judgement though, I haven't looked at all of them to check that they're portal worthy.

list:
@doberman
@floodwing
@subliminalvirus
@TheYoAsobi
@sedacaru
@Xtremeneox
@instantbenz
@shadow-ghost
@Zirchicken
@AgusTorena
@anroll
@jesse3xj
@ngpulp
@crusaderTM
@twobyfour
@uniporn
@elseedy
@aniMate

Thanks!

That's how the branching system works. The base of the branch gets cut off, all that was a part of that branch falls off, too.

Yeah. Often non-portal worthy artists are inclined to scout other non-portal worthy artists, so usually it works out.

And of course I'd be grateful if I would be scouted as well :)
I'm the last one on the list, AniMate.

Thank you for your consideration.

So uhh can someone do something about a user named tdafgt. I read one of his "reviews" on Alvin's latest work and decided to look into it. Apparently he only speaks this language.

I got a review from the person as well. He had posted 65 identical "watwatwat" reviews. What a strange waste of time.

Haha... Of course! I totally did not see that. I suppose I should be glad as it would seem that I still have some of my child-like innocense :P

haha yeah. These days I'm kinda thankful for these types of people as they will be responsible for a very, very long overdue and necessary overhaul to the voting system.

Haha yup. I spent a year working with a lot of big names. But now I'm back and still as obnoxiously vocal as I've always been. A lot of pros told me the worst part about me is how much shit I talk but I told them I thought art was about personality.

Yeah, if anything I always filed you under "too-polite-to-express-his-clearly-vehement-feelings" .

Apparently when you start developing a (quote, unquote) professional following--and this is strange because I don't consider myself a professional at all, just a person who has worked with professionals--you basically have to become ideologically mute. Since I've been exploring my options outside of Newgrounds, I've had people adding me on Facebook in droves and I have to constantly put out disclaimers that it's a personal Facebook and not a professional one. Professional Facebooks are completely sterile. No opinions, just art. I don't ever see myself living that way.

I guess, as you become more recognized, you also become a greater focus of public scrutiny. So people are afraid to offend. I personally don't care what the public has to say. Which is why I've always been pissy about Portal standards and ratings because it's part of a global pandemic of consumer-despotism. We are letting consumers control everything. The entire portal is based on standards indirectly set by non-artists (thru view counts and ratings), which is why quality control is so difficult.

I mean even when I had like 800 fans on NG, people got pissy whenever I wrote impassioned or angry things on my page. Like honestly, the concept of "fandom" is entirely inverted these days. You figure people become your fans because they respect you, but in actuality they demand YOUR respect to the point where their feelings come before your expression.

Such is the issue with representing a complex opinion numerically. It gives them credence to the thought that they have power over you.


Sweet glow on that JO, bro. Must have been a lot of positive energy at the sesh.
