The Great Canadian Audio Tour May. 7th, 2008 @ 01:06 AM Reply

Well hello Newgrounds!

I want to collaborate... WAIT!.... don't flame me just yet.

I'm tired of this mansy pansy Collaboration via interweb thing we keep semi-successfully attempting. How about something that hasn't been done before (At least I think I'm the only one stupid enough to go for this)

You see, my 50th submission to Newgrounds is fast approaching and I've been thinking hard of a way to commemorate such an occasion. It got me thinking....

I have some bucks saved up, some holidays from work stored away as well. It's time to do some Traveling!

So heres what I'm going to do. I'm going to hop in a car and an airplane, and make some stops. I'm going to go and visit a few of my favorite Canadian newgrounds artists.

My plan is to meet and collaborate in person with a few newgrounds artists for my 50th Submission.

So heres the deal, if you live in Alberta... let me know, I could drive anywhere in alberta fairly easily.

I'm also making a weekend trip near or in Kelowna. And I'll be making one flight down to Toronto.

If you live or can get to any of these places easily and want to be involved, let me know.

That pretty much flexes my budget for this idea, so I won't be going anywhere outside of Alberta. Unless of course you fund my ticket... in which case... I'll certainly go anywhere you like.

I'll be videotaping everything I can and give you guys a chance to meet a few artists from Newgrounds yourself. I wish I could go all over the world to meet a lot of you, but, I'm not rich like our founding father Tom Fulp.

In The End the music that will come fourth is of the least importance... the learning experience and chance to get creative with some of you guys will be well worth it.

Cheers to all who are able to join in. Though I doubt there will be many... if any.

At the time of this posting I have confirmed a visit with MaestroRage in Toronto, and hope to confirm a visit with Bad_Man_Incorporated as soon as I speak with him)

Thats right, I'll be chewing gum and kicking Dan's ass!

At least, kicking ass Canadian style, which really is us throwing our pet beavers at each other until the other succumbs to rabies.

Can't wait to meet you in real life Dan, if we remember any of it, we didn't do it right.

Again I must clarify that I will only be Going to anywhere in Alberta, Near Kelowna, BC... and Toronto Ontario. Anywhere else is beyond my budget for this tour (unless of course you pay for the trip, which isn't likely). So if you'd like to get together for an Interview (or The big music collaboration) and are available for those areas at any time, let me know.

I'm hoping the trip to Toronto will be the biggest. Me and Maestro promise there will be crackers, cake... and mom jokes.

Shit and here the whole time I thought it was Kelowna... ok people... I'm going to Kamloops not Kelowna. :D.... haha I'm such an idiot.

For those who live in calgary... I'll catch you all in one shot for sure.

Spread the word.

Glad to see many of you considering going to Toronto. Please send me a message if your sure, and I'll send everyone a date and place in advance.

Looking good people... looking very good... hey maybe if we get enough people, Mr.Fulp will look upon this and bless us with swag to adorn our holy gathering.

Does anyone know any popular Flash artists who live in the toronto area?

Man I wish I could, but thats a whole other flight plan.... the extra few hundred dollars is simply too much to cover it (and I'm certainly sure I'm the only one silly enough to fund this tour in the first place)... it would be cool to drive down there... but I simply don't have the 5 days I'd need to make such a drive worth it.

Maybe I'll take another tour next year, or if your in Alberta for any reason let me know and we'll work something out.

Come to think of it, has ANYONE seen you in real life, MR? I sure haven't. I checked the audio pics thread, but you seem to be hiding from me. Why do you not want me to see your beautiful face?

Thats 'cause most Germans don't have internet. The majority of your country is still impoverished due to your shameful defeat from Allied forces in WWII.
