Nice! This is a pretty good story of how this place was great for someone. I'm sure there are plenty of other stories like this around here, I bet most have.
I don't know if he has read this yet. But @TomFulp needs to read this. And maybe he should know of everyone else's story with NG, our relations with this place. We have much to thank him.
I have much to thank you. Thanks for taking the time to read my rantings.
Thanks for sharing this, I'd love to see more people share their NG stories like this.
Always lovely to hear from you. Try and remember that just because people don't always say it doesn't mean they weren't changed by it.
hell yeah my guy
Hell yeah my tyler
GOD BLESS NEW GROUNDS
God bless us everyone!
I remember you quite well! You're one of the top ones on my mind whenever I'm thinking of "wonder how X is doing these days..."
I was a fan then and I'm a fan now, glad to see you're still above ground and doing swell. Wishing you all the best in your endeavors.
Why thank you!
Hey dude, I just want to say that you've got a very inspiring story and I wish the best of luck going forward (even though it seems you're already pretty successful). It's people like you that shaped my childhood with the games you made and stories you conveyed, and without people like you I would not have the creative juices flowing through my brain that I have today. So thank you very much man, it's been a pleasure to read your story as well as enjoy your work/art.
I Hope to see your name attached to many great things in the future!
We'll see! I'm totally ready to be homeless in eight months once everyone realizes him a fraud.
It's crazy to think I've been following you for almost ten years. You were my favorite author, content creator, and animator here on Newgrounds. I remember regularly following your text posts simply because they were always meaningful-- whether they be funny, insightful, informative... and you always kept it vague somehow because the way you write was always making you think. Was a post just mindless typing? A story behind it? Sarcastic tone or serious? Did you actually have an interview with Tom? Were you actually a girl? Will there ever be a comment or review that you miss responding to? Is there more to your animations than on the surface? I always found myself going back to everything you produced and sharing them too.
It honestly was a dream come true to actually get to talk to you one on one after years of enjoying your work. I got to "meet" someone who was such an inspiration and influence on me in many ways (I was in early high school when I first saw your works on the front page of Newgrounds). My interest in pixel art, animation, creation, humor, writing. I remember just how much Legend of Link 2 shaped my sense of humor haha. It seems silly, but I can't think of a content creator who had more of an impact on me.
Your posts lately on Twitter and this one is the most open about your life I can ever remember in memory. And to see your journey beside what you've posted really is inspiring. I'm glad I got to see your journey too. From watching your animations as a highschooler and reading your posts, to supporting your kickstarter when I was starting college, to sharing your Dead Horizon to my audience on Twitch and getting the opportunity to talk to you after graduating, I hope that you find even greater success and I hope I get to continue to support one of the most creative individuals I've ever seen.
Thank you for everything you've done and I hope you realize you've inspired and touched us just as much as you feel he community inspired and touched you.
Very nice of you to say.
yo yo yo wassup
Not a lot.
hi gud u xd
No, you good!
I've always done my best to keep my experiences somewhere in my conscious memory. It's about respect; respecting yourself, other people, and respecting relations.
Somewhere along the path of growing up, something might have gotten twisted, and I can rarely feel like relations with others have a mutual respect any more. Nothing really matters.
But it is different when it comes to Newgrounds and its anti-culture art. There's a reward to remembering these works, and mining them for more laughs and understanding; like having a friend that helped you explore and understand the world by being there, and making you feel less alone.
Point being, your "Logic" short and the Legend of Link show meant a lot for someone like me who gets frustrated with thinking the same kind of thoughts all the time. Your art expanded my vocabulary, made me laugh with refreshing mono-/dialogues, and just impressed me with the glimmers of wit, heart, and a bit of anarchy.
Your films are, for me, the best of a certain generation. People change, and I have lost most of my nonsensically thick skin. The core of your art (at least the amateur art) remains a muse for me in writing, timing, heart, humour, a bit of absurdism, and respecting individuality while helping each other.
This got more scattered than I wanted - there's just a lot of love for your artistry and also everything NG has done that I want to express. Even if you don't ever create anything like the NG art any more, I am forever thankful for what you have done.
I appreciate that a lot, I really do.
