People listen up don't stand too close,
I've got somethin' that you all should know:
holy matrimony is not for me,
I'd rather die alone in misery

Cuz I was always taught that boy meets girl,
fall in love get married and forget the world,
nine months later sweet baby's on the way.
Isn't that what they used to say?


5 Years Gone

I've been coming to newgrounds for about 5 years (I was coming here before I signed up).
At first newgrounds was something to do in a boring summer of just a 13 year old without a cause. As time went on my skills changed and so did my cause. Newgrounds became so much more. To me it was suddenly the ultimate gateway of expression. I could take the things I could see in my mind while listening to music, and turn it into something like "the gnome". Newgrounds struggled to provide enough bandwidth, just barely making it from an underground website to what it is now. It seems like every year it hits me when all of a sudden, it's clock day AGAIN, another year has passed as my teenage years fade away into manhood. Towards the end of 2006 I had one more spirt of bordom and lonelyness to express my views with "In the summer sky" and "phoenix Wright: the trial". As I realised the ability of my skill in some of my unsubmitted unfinished works I only further realised that it wasn't skills that I needed so much anymore, it's time, patients, and the ability to sit on my ass for hours on end. I then got a job, and another car, and another girl. My third car in a year, oh the mistakes I made back then. I'd love to make more flash, music, photoshop, finish "seven nation army collab". But when it comes down to it, I'm turning 19 august 30th, I work full time, 12 hour days, I have tons of friends, the girls come and go. I don't have time to persue the one work that really makes me feel good, and that's all there is to it. It sucks, but that's the fact, and I've come to realise it. Newgrounds is an amazing machine, the bigger it gets the more amazing it becomes. But I'm not a bored, fat, 13 year old with hours and hours to kill, I'm a man now, all of a sudden. But I hope to bring some works in pretty soon, see what i've got these days, I only ever get better. Until then, enjoy this fantastic site, while you still really can.

And the fog forming on my window tells me that the morning's here and you'll be gone before to long.
