I have to thank you so much

Well, where to begin. About 2 years ago my sophmore year I used this song in my flash animation "Raged Retards". (Yes with a title like that, it was anticipated for a blammage, which it received.) I loved the song, i listened to it all the time. I had it on CD's and everything. Then I lost the CD and almost forgot about the song. I watched the animation time and again to hear that song. My sophmore year of highschool was the best time of my life, and every time i think of that year i think of this song. i came on newgrounds just to find it. I remember searching "happy" and found this, it was so awesome that I found it again 2 years later. Thanks.

that's so amazing, great story and it's incredible to know that i helped you out with music. make something great of yourself and you cant go wrong. peace.

yep very nice

Actually i used this track for a version of a flash of mine. I tried to contact you on AIM, but you were never one when i was on also. I hope its not a problem with me using it? i gave a link to this webspace in the description. Basically i made a kickass music video for you, if you want the swf, just contact me!
Oh i had to edit the song a bit to make it longer.

Here is the animation http://www.deviantart.com/view/24077393/


crud responds:

damn dude. i'm not really sure what to say. your music video was so good that a simple thank you just doesn't cut it. i was especially impressed with your editing of the song to fit the movie. completely seamlessly done. you are a true master to be able to make an incredible video and take time to edit the music as well, i might just have to get that swf from you indeed! stay safe and always have fun.


This may sound goofy, but this is my ultime favorite song. No lie. When I got my Flash kit in december, you can bet your ass im useing it. I have crazy skillz at drawing too. I have all the time in the world too.

crud responds:

a compliment is never meant to be goofy sir. you have some of the best tools available to you my friend, a keen ear, an eye for art and hands to make it all happen at once. cheers and good luck for life!


That was just awesome, I love your music man. Keep it up.

crud responds:

thank you very much! circular bob rocks! i really appreciate you listening to my stuff! have a nice day!!!


had my volume on my headphones too loud..think that first fuzzkick broke my eardrum. Lets see here. the beat was pretty funky...Odd bass, but it fit in quite nicely. And either your using the plucked, or its just a tweaked out 404..but whichever it was, that mixed with everything else gave the song some comfort. "I don't even know why i submitted this" pfft...I should smack you...the title says it all, it's cheery, happy, and funky...Somthing you may listen to one on of those great days. I thought it was good, I really like your style. Keep the songs coming.

crud responds:

haha, sorry bout that intro blast. ;) uh, yeah,the bass is made with WASP and i just fell in love with it. the bendy pluck sound is actually a synth harpsichord preset with portamento...i started this song thinking to myself, i just wanna make something happy. i guess this acheived that, thank you for noting it. the whole "i don't know why...." thing...i uh, well it was just really short and i pumped it out in like 2 hours, kinda like a whim, i'm almost didn't submit it. but with your great review i guess it was worth is, thanks a bunch man. i really appreciate. you can bet the songs will keep coming!
