Not too long ago I paid to be a supporter for another year, so that will remain for a while (and I don't regret doing so). However, I am now quite certain that Newgrounds is not really where I belong. I disagree with too many things, er- 'goings-on' with(in) this website as a whole; especially, I mean, as far as content, art, philosophy. Just not quite 100% of it all everything here seems to 'fit' with me. I can't genuinely be or take part. Kind of a shame, but it's the truth.
And this was the way it always was, really..
This website will out-live me. I believe it.
I will be dust, or in the ground, but NG will remain.
I still "doodle" jams and loops, occaisionally when I feel inspired.. but I don't "finish" anything, &,then.. so no upload
The possibility of live-streaming what I do with random musics sometimes almost seems like an interesting idea..
but I will never be capable enough.
...I get more hopeless with every passing day
I've said it before and I'll say it again,
Competition is the root of all evil.
That is all.
just saying this will probably be the longest I have gone in a really long time without uploading some kind of original music or crappy art to the internet (NG is my fav)... and it's quite disappointing..
it's really music, not so much art, that was in many ways more important and meaningful to me.. er yeah, I suppose..
all I really want to do in life is create - create things of all kind... (the song in this post is about 'never' things)
I need to fix the low-end in this mix. It's terrible.
I hate money.
Isn't it the future yet? oh well...
subsequently, no music post.. aaand massively depressed
I will be uploading something for the A.I.M. ...eventually
pretty sure.. hopefully
I don't really like RT, becuase I know it's not exatly independant, but this discussion is extremely interesting.
If you ever want to get profoundly serious with the state of the world, politics and reality, Truthdig is one fantastic outlet that can be there for you (hopefully for a while). Yeah, I think I'll just leave it at that, so..
Just follow the link. Read the article. The writer, Chris Hedges, is quite brilliant.
Quote from the article "American Psychosis":
"The barrage of lies creates a climate in which everyone is assumed to be lying. The truth becomes suspect and obscured. Narratives begin to be believed not because they are true, or even sound true, but because they are emotionally appealing. The aim of systematic lying, as Arendt wrote, is the 'transformation of human nature itself.' The lies eventually foster somnambulism among a population that surrenders to the magical thinking and ceases to care. It checks out. It becomes cynical. It only asks to be entertained and given a vent for its frustration and rage."
Curious who did the picture above? Here's a quote and video with him below.
"I never want to depict him [Trump] as a figure of fun, as a buffoon, as a clown. OK? Because it brings all the attention onto him and lessens the focus on the apparatus that got him in there."
A good video for Newgrounds! ↓↓↓ (I wish it wasn't state sponsered (Russian) media [RT], but it's still interesting)
"Dissident Cartoonist" video (interview)
Quick note: I tried to embed directly from rt.com, but apparently it's not on Newgrounds' "whitelist". Sure. Ok.
I liked the thumbnail from that embed though, so I'm gonna go out of my way to put just that pic in back right here..
Actually, so I added "global" to the title of this post... because, well, simply put, the world is very globalized (more and more everyday) and that absolutely includes the export of American culture around the world (Newgrounds, like Facebook, etc. is USA culture). Therefore, if there is any truth in the theory of this 'Psychosis' in the United States, then it stands to reason a bit of that psychosis is probably spread in little (or large) bits all around the world. (even more than it would naturally occur)
The internet is a very inhuman place...
FAKE.. fuckin.. ROBOTS everywhere
honestly, I kind of truly hate it here...
