Good morning/afternoon/evening, dear Newgrounds user.
I cannot stress enough how happy and grateful I am for the 500 users who are or have been following my content throughout the 5 years I've been on this community, but I'll give it a try:
THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTH
I'm sincerely astonished at how far I've gotten in this place with my complex and quirky way of expressing myself through music, and these kinda things make me not want to stop. Never stop.
I'm honestly out of words at the moment so I'm really sorry for not being able to write something moving or inspiring like other people here do. Feels really bad to not being able to express how meaningful this is to me. It's kinda like, uh... like I feel more "observed" but not in the bad way, in the good way:
The good way where my music slowly gets acknowledged my more and more people every minute, every day, every week, every year.
The good way where someone who didn't have any "base" --(having musical producing stuff at home or having family members who were involved in music production and that kinda stuff that usually wakes up the "I WANNA DEDICATE TO MUSIC" eureka moment in some people)-- and started dabbling into music at like 15 years old can make stuff that can be appreciated by people around the world and polished to become productions of decent-but-enjoyable quality.
Having this last thing in mind, I want to say that no matter when you start making music, or drawing, animating, programming, writing, etc., if you continue doing it while putting dedication and love into it, you can reach results that will be so unexpected that the you from the past will not fucking believe how the hell have you become the talented person you are today even if they didn't have any of that in mind for the future in the first place. This applies to everything. There's no age limit for learning or expressing yourself, as long as you do what you love and love what you do, because if others could do it then so can you (it even rhymes! i kinda wanna use this as my catchphrase lol).
Once again, thank you so much to everyone in this place and outside this place for all the kind words and the constructive or unconstructive feedback. It makes all these last years of effort a meaningful thing, and I really appreciate that.
Now this next thing is something I wanted to do as soon as I reached the ultimate milestone of 1000 fans but I don't know if the list would remain the same by the time I reach that number. I want to specially thank:
@Troisnyx (for being so amazing and an emotional support to me. Your verbally broad lexicon is so moving and poetic that a rap battle with you might as well be my thesis for my English translation career hahahah) as well as LITERALLY EVERYONE at Troisnyx's discord server for being so talented and great in your own ways. I'm really really sorry I didn't tag you but you know who you are. Love every single one of ya
Everyone at @TheNewgroundsPodcast INCLUDING all the guests just because y'all kick ass by just being yourselves in every episode of the podcast which is fucking hilarious
People from the Party Games & Chill server such as @PsychoGoldfish, @ShitOnAStick, @SplatterDash, @Spadezer, @Jacob, @VoivesByCorey, @Xinxinix, @Jatmoz, @Oddlem, @RealMrSnuggles and everyone else whom I probably forgot to mention (sorry again!!!! D:)
@ChutneyGlaze for that time in vc in your server a long time ago where I got to show you my music and art and you liked it even with your impressive talent for art and animation. You may not have noticed but your words at that time meant a lot to me so thanks a lot. Also thank you to everyone in Chutney's server for hanging out with me when we get together, you guys are really funny and great company.
Fellow musicians I haven't mentioned yet such as @Phonometrologist, @Teravex, @BrandyBuizel, @CryNN, @Quarl, @PredatorMusic, @littlbox, @ForgottenDawn, @FelixZophar, @Shiverwar, @MetalRenard, @JessieYun, @Bitbeak and many many many many many many many many many many many many many many others
And finally @TomFulp for creating an opportunity for people with lots of potential to start from the ground up, while being the coolest and most chill guy of the world at the same time.
As soon as I hit the K I'll most likely do a more intense tagging including way more people (you're on time to stop me >:) heheh) but for now these are some names of people who shaped my experience on Newgrounds in a significant amount.
Upcoming projects and that kinda stuff
That's right, AL-BE makin' a return for NGADM this year, and it's going to be EXCITING AF. I honestly can't wait to hear all the new songs people are going to make for this contest aaaaaaaaaaaaa
Ambient music EP
I'm preparing my first EP ever and it's gonna be an "ambient-ish" collection of brand new never-seen-before songs by yours truly!!! ^-^
(about the amount of tracks and their proper durations... i have no hecking idea, hahah)
Well I think that's about it. Thank you so much for reading, thank you again so much for the 0.5k fans and I'll see you next update post. Long live Newgrounds! ❤
