I'm all about the misleading titles lately...

Anywho... Go sign up for my forum, because it's fun and stuff, and you guys like stuff... maybe some things... right?
Also be sure to check out the rest of the links I have sitting in my Contact Info / Websites box over on the left of this profile.

I've also got a couple shout outs today, awesome people get awesome shout outs:

First up being Hikari, otherwise known as tabu112 here on NG. She's always putting out awesome raw samples for people to use, and I've been using some of those samples in stuff I've been working on lately. Some of said samples can be found here.

Next up, HalcyonicFalconX for being awesome and helping me out with a song I'm working on, giving me some pointers on areas that I didn't really pay much attention to before.

So yeah... go show those 2 some luvings.

Also, new profile theme... totally random... but whatever... doesn't need to be themed every time I change it.

And with totally random theme comes totally random picture that has nothing to do with anything:

I'm such a slut

2013-04-18 00:47:38 by Back-From-Purgatory

Why? Because I'm not only whoring out my forum (Go join!) this time... I'm also whoring out my new Tumblr!

Gosh... I'm such an awful person... But that's ok, I'm sure Tomoko will forgive me... but I can't say the same for you guys if you don't sign up for the forum and follow/reblog my tumblr.

See? She's already looking down... Don't make Tomoko sad...

Do it! Do it now!

Join my new and improved forum!

I do apologize to those that were getting settled in the old one, but I couldn't stand phpBB any longer, so I spent a good 11 hours today working on this new one, and I've already added MORE than I ever had on the last forum... because it's so much easier to do... well... anything.

So hopefully the new features (Like a shop... credits per post... youtube gallery... among much more) is enough for you guys to forgive me for trashing the other forum.

As before... Flandre insists you join! ((Flandre is soon to be a purchasable pet in the shop <3))

Do it!  Do it now!

Do you like STUFF?!

2013-03-10 16:30:38 by Back-From-Purgatory

Then you'll love my forum!

Still a work in progress, but there is already a fairly active and loyal user base, and I'm implementing new features, tweaks, and such, on a regular basis. Come on over, sign up, and start posting!

New Forum!

2013-02-23 22:00:52 by Back-From-Purgatory

So, it's been a while since I started up that little freebie forum, and when I did, I mentioned that I would be working on getting my own domain so that I can have full control over everything.

Well... that day has come, I have my own domain, the site itself is still a massive work in progress... so I'm not gonna bother whoring that out just yet, but the forum is operational (Also still a work in progress... but working), and I figure may as well start building up a roster now... that way I can get constant feedback on things.

So... Come on down, join up, and start chatting! And I'll keep working on it, adding new features, new ranks, visuals, etc. etc... And for those of you who had adopted my freebie forum, the layout is more or less the same as far as what's available, so should be a fairly easy transition.

New Forum!

The Journey Home

2013-02-01 04:43:10 by Back-From-Purgatory

So... I decided to try my hand at Bosa's "Dreams of Splendor" contest about a month ago... He went out of his way to send me an invite, so I figured why not. So, I spent the last month struggling against a really nasty case of writers block, and one day... like... 2 days ago... I was mucking around in FL Studio, being upset that I couldn't seem to come up with anything decent. I got fed up, closed down what I was working on, opened up Synthesia, and played one of my favorite songs to play on piano (Packaged... although I edited it a little bit to split up the hands and removed the vocal part).

I finished the song, and decided to give writing another shot, so I opened up FL Studio again, started mucking around on my keyboard, and in the span of about 5-6 hours, I had a nearly 4 min piano track practically finished.
On top of that... I really, really liked it... It had a nice melody, a good progression, and I jumped a lot of hurdles that I usually stumble over when writing longer songs.

So, I added some more stuff on top, drums, a pad, and a smooth lead synth, made a few tweaks here and there... and in about 12 hours total...
...this came out:
The Journey Home
Also: Piano only version

I'm pretty happy with it... been a while since I've felt this satisfied with a song I've written... I'd wager this will be up on my favorites with Them and Yin.

So yeah... give it a listen, leave a review, let me know what you think.

And as always... the song is totally open to interpretation... I love hearing different peoples interpretations of my stuff.

I heard you like youtube videos, so I put up a youtube video of music that's not actually a video, unless you count visualizers, in which case, maybe it is a video and I don't know what I'm talking about.

Whatever the case may be, it's on youtube, and it's a song I don't have on Newgrounds... more specifically, it's "Awakening" off Chapter 1 of my album "To The End Of The World" (Which you should go buy).

Watch, listen, enjoy, like, comment, subscribe... you know the drill.

As an added note... I'm going to have a face in the maybe not so distant future... so... look forward to that.
