DOTA 2 left: 0
CR Guest Pass left: 0

EDIT: Please send me a PM with your email address if you want a copy of DOTA 2. If you want the Crunchyroll guest pass, PM me your email address here, or make a crunchyroll account and PM me on Crunchyroll.

Ok... so, recently, I've been given a few things to give away, firstly being 3 copies of DOTA 2 via Steam. First 3 people to ask for them gets them, also be sure to PM me your email address so I can send it to you.

Second, I have 2 guest passes for Crunchyroll to give away, again, first come first served.
For those that don't know, Crunchyroll is an official (and legal!) anime streaming website that puts out subbed episodes as fast as 1 hour after the anime airs in Japan land. I signed up for it recently because I was without a PC for a while, and needed my anime fix, seeing as there is a crunchyroll app on PS3.. I broke down and signed up, and I wasn't disappointed, it's been nothing but quality since I signed up. It doesn't have the greatest selection ever, but for the $7/month you pay (Assuming you only want anime, the site also has Japanese live action drama as well for some extra cash), it certainly gets the job done.

Feel free to pop by my Crunchyroll profile and drop a message.

That's it for give aways, so now I'm gonna just be a whore and drop a few promotional links before I share 1 last tidbit:

And if you're still with me now that I'm done whoring out my stuff... On the topic of crunchyroll, they had a sale on something today which I couldn't pass up... Seeing as it is one of my favorite characters of all time, because not only is she bad ass, the story behind her really speaks to me...

That's right... I bought a 1/8 scale PVC figure of the one, the only... Insane Black Rock Shooter... and she only set me back $125 (As opposed to $180 normal price):

To The End Of The World

2012-12-03 00:47:29 by Back-From-Purgatory

The album is now up on Bandcamp! Check it out here!
Incidentally, you can buy it before the release date because I screwed something up... soooo... have at it.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONATED, YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED A DOWNLOAD CODE FROM ME ALREADY VIA NEWGROUNDS PM. There is no need to purchase it again... unless you really feel like increasing your donation, then awesome, I appreciate it. Also, please be sure to check out my Official Forum, as there is some exclusive news on how you can get the album for FREE!

As the title implies... this newspost is about my upcoming album, "To The End Of The World".

First and foremost, I do have to mention, that I will now be releasing the album in 3 parts, and don't worry, if you've already donated, you'll still be getting all 3. This is mostly due to time constraints, writers block, and the fact that it's housing 3 different genres, so I figured, I may as well have 3 "Chapters". And once I finish all 3, I can compile them into 1 full length album.

That aside... I now have a release date for you guys.

When will Chapter 1 release?
December 21, 2012

Seemed like a fitting date considering the name of the album.

All 3 albums are themed in a different color:
Red - Metal
Blue - Trance/Electronic
Green - Orchestral/Classical
(Not necessarily being released in that order.... save Metal)

I will have download links for those people that have donated, and for those that haven't, the album will be made available with an online digital retailer (At the moment, I'm thinking bandcamp... Subject to change).

And lastly... here's the album cover:
(Fun note: Before all the effects, this picture was my left eye)

To The End Of The World

The Other Eye

2012-12-02 22:01:56 by Back-From-Purgatory

So... a while back... I posted a picture of my right eye, because... ummm... because.

And I'm not a cyclops to many peoples surprise, so here, I present to you, my left eye, with my right eye included just for consistency sake.

... Incidentally, both pictures were taken at different times... in different lighting... and with different cameras. I needed this picture (Left eye, on the right here... as if I was facing you) to be much higher quality... for reasons I cannot share. You will all know why soon enough.

Anywho, enough blabbering... here are the pictures... again, right is on left, left is on the right... as if I were facing you:

Purgy is back!

2012-11-16 19:01:41 by Back-From-Purgatory

Got my PC back, and everything is running good! I haven't got all my backed up stuff back on here yet, but I'll be doing that over the next few days.

So, now I'm in debt from the new parts in this thing... plus side is, I replaced all my ancient parts, so my PC should be running a lot better now.

As an extra note.... Windows 8 is fucking weird as hell.

PC Out Of Order

2012-11-07 00:07:21 by Back-From-Purgatory

I've dropped off my pc at the store and bought new parts, now I just have to wait about a week for them to install everything. Also newgrounds runs really really slow on my iPod.

Quick update... my HDD has bit the bullet, so I won't be around very often until I find time to replace all the ancient parts in my PC (Of which, my HDD is my second newest oddly enough).

Fortunately, I managed to back up all my projects before my HDD completely died on me.

I'm getting paid tomorrow, and if I've got the energy, I'll be trying to get my PC fixed up after a morning shift. So yeah... for a few days at least, I won't be around.

Want a FREE game?

2012-11-05 23:53:58 by Back-From-Purgatory

So, apparently, when I signed up for the beta of DOTA 2 way back when.. and got in... and proceeded to play a grand total of 2 games before dropping it... Valve decided to give me the game for free... and a copy (Says 2 in the email... but I only seem to have 1 copy in my steam inventory) extra to gift away.

Thing is, I don't know anyone that's really into DOTA, and I'm not big into it myself either. Soooo... I'm giving the free copy of DOTA 2 I have away to the first person who wants it.

First come, first served. Go!

K... been a while since I've put up a newspost that has any actual information in it... sooo... here's one.

First off, if you didn't catch this newspost, I suggest you go give it a quick once over, as it is relevant to the first thing I'm gonna bring up.

Which is... My Forum, you should come visit, sure it's not extremely active, but so far, there is a small fairly dedicated group of people posting on it, and when I can, I'll be updating things here and there. It's just a freebie forum, which I unfortunately have very little control over as far as looks and editing of functions and such... but I do plan to open up my own domain soonish to build my own site and forum from scratch, at which point, I'll have everyone migrate over and I'll be able to do whatever I please with it, without limitation.

Next up, music, been a while since I've posted an update on my album, so... rest assured, it's still coming... in fact, pretty soon, I should have another preview up, this time of one of the trance tracks I'm working on. I've also got a few orchestral tracks bouncing around in my head, as well as some ideas recorded, but those will be last on my to do list. So... Look forward to that and jazz.

And... stuff...
Well... I'm working again, so, it's nice to have some cash flow again... Although, I've been working like non-stop. Today was my 7th day in a row at work... and I've still got another 3 to go before I get a day off... and I do mean A (As in, singular) day... then I'm back to work again... It's nice having money again... but working 10 days at a time and only getting 1 day off before I go back to work... it's brutal... I'm tired as all hell.

... in fact, I'm gonna go to bed, cause I'm about ready to pass out.

So... let me leave you with another fun gif... Why? I dunno, because.

New profile theme... hurrah.

Would you visit?

2012-09-30 21:37:13 by Back-From-Purgatory

So, as I implied in response to BumFodder in my previous newspost... I've been entertaining the thought of creating my own website, which would more or less be the official site for my music, not to say it'd be exclusive about music, it'll probably end up being multipurpose for my other interests as well. I've got a lot of ideas, but at this point in time, they are just that, ideas.

And before I can even attempt to put them into play, I need to know if the investment would be worth it. Why? Because if I'm going to have my own website, I'm going to want to do it right, and that means buying a domain name and paying monthly for web hosting. And if my site is going to be completely dead, it'd be kind of pointless to be paying to keep it up every month.

So, my question to you guys is this. If I were to create an official website for myself (Forums included, obviously), would you visit?

As an added note, I have actually just set up a freebie forum to just get the ball rolling, which can now be found here. Drop by and say hi! And hopefully stick around and help the community, and eventually site, grow!
