Dudes! How long has it been?

Newgrounds is the SHIT. A little more bacony than I remember, but still great none the less.

Anyways, over the past year or so I've been learning to program. Operation:Onslaught is basically my first ever programming project. I originally started it to learn the ropes of object oriented programming and actionscript 3. Holy moly, if you could only see the code running this beast of a game (its god awful horrible, thousands and thousands of unusable garbage code), you'd probably pass out, wake up, regurgitate, eat it, then take a nap.

Besides that, I've wrapped up college and gotten myself a jobby workin' day shifts at a design firm. Man, sure is fun designing for clients. No lie, it's a lot of fun.

So much fun that if you had a physical bowl that could hold fun, the bowl would be the size of one of those dogs. You know, the big ones.

The kind of dogs that would eat an Italian pizza pie, three dozen wing dings and hefty side of coleslaw without thinking twice.

Yeah so, its kind of late. What do you think dudes?

Operation:Onslaught, learning to program, etc.


GLIP history

2008-05-06 10:40:01 by ZT

God lives in psilocybin.

Psilocybin is the hallucinogenic chemical in magic mushrooms. The title comes from an experience I had in my room, where I met God. I don't remember what it was that we talked about, but I do remember clearly what he looked like. An orb of white light, or a sphere of missing. Like a vacuum in space perpetually sucking itself deeper and deeper, bathing in the light it had managed to trap that now pleasantly revolved around the center of the sphere.

I started GLIP about 8 months ago, and I had all but finished the first part when I began working full-time at TJMaxx. TJMaxx is a horrible place to work. It's not difficult in any way, it doesn't require me to be creative, it requires me to follow an endless list of unpractical procedures and regulations while performing an array of meaningless tasks. I also started college at ITT Tech, attending night classes after work. On top of this I managed to get myself into a relationship, leaving no time to persue the hobbies I know and love.

The second part of GLIP, the part with the teddy bear, I think was just an excuse for me to throw that track in there. I love that track. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time mixing it. The cartoon following it isn't particularly great, nor does it really match the other two pieces, but I still like it. It gave me a chance to try one of those infamous zoom-out-to-another-solar-system shots I've always wanted to do.

I was away from my computer for a solid six month period where I thought about the cartoon a lot but couldn't work on it. I ended up starting a storyboard when I got an idea for a diner scene where one of the people go through a schizophrenic episode which causes the other people in the diner to turn into robots. I bought some crayons, and colored that shit in. Crayons are amazing.

I put a lot of time into the sound of GLIP. I took a laptop with me outside to record ambient noises for the last scene, and to Ruby Tuesday's in order to grab some restaurant chatter. The first part of GLIP's audio was mixed heavily to give off that flanging effect sound has when in the throws of a hallucinogenic drug.

I took a week off of work to sit down and finish the project. I'm hypoglycemic so whenever I don't eat just the perfect amount of food I get really spaced out and tend to go off on wild tangents of thought I don't particularly care for. Point being it was bothering the shit out of me that I hadn't gotten to work on anything creative for almost a year, so I needed to get this project done.

I hope you enjoyed watching it.

I just remembered why you shouldnt cook stuff in the oven when you're baked.

It gets fucking black and nasty cause you forget its in there and dont remember untill your mom gets home and is all "what the fuck? why did you put tacos in the oven? and why the fuck arnt the tacos on a cooking sheet or something?" and then when you're un-high you have to go clean out the oven and shit cause it keeps smoking now that theres all these little bits of crusty taco in it.

Fuck!

Hey, this one time I put a sandwich in the oven on a paper plate and forgot I put it in there. It was cooking for a good 3 hours before someone asked me wtf the smell was.

Turns out the smell was caused by the sandwich burning.


Why I hate Luis Castonnonnonn

2007-11-24 01:26:16 by ZT

This post is about why I hate Luis Castonnonn.

Back some years, like in late '03 or maybe really early '04, like a couple weeks after I got flash, I got this bomb ass idea for a flash collaboration, where authors can animate to music, then one person collects those pieces and arranges them into one flash movie. Me me me, I did it, it was my idea. (common now, but unheard of at the time)

Anyways, the first people I shared this idea with was the BBS on NG. People loved the idea and a bunch of artists said they'd animate for the project. Including this dude Luis. Luis was pretty popular on the forums, and with his advanced ability in flash he yanked control over the project from me. Fucked, fucked.

Like I was seriously robbed control over the project. NGTT by the way, thats what it was called. And it got fucking big and spawned a billion other flash collabs. And this ass fuck totally took credit for the whole thing, mother fuckerrrrrr.

Anyways, that shit just urks the fuck out of me. On the last NGTT, like the final one, in the description he posted special thanks to all the people that helped with it, and he didnt even mention me. I still can't believe that fucking shit.

Goddamnit.

This shit haunts me. And I havent said shit about it for like 4 years, so fuck off, I don't think I'm being a cock.

On a completely unrelated note- this dude from the NG staff, BOB, just PMed me saying he's making a live action version of The Perfect Picnic. Holy fuck thats cool. Thats really fucking awesome.

And I've got a ton of projects that I'm working on casually. I don't have much time inbetween full time work + school, but I definitely have some dope shit under works. A bunch of awesome acid ass games, and a couple of cartoons, and a CD, and like stuff and crap. Dudes I made the awesomest theme song for this one cartoon I'm working on and it sucks that I cant show anyone the song untill the cartoon is done, which probably wont be for a year or something cause I suck dicks at screenplaying.

Fuck you Luis, dont even think about reading this and posting a comment. You jewed me hard and I hate you,
-Chris May
