He is the shit.
I'm working on several songs these days and particularly on a collaboration with Bad-Man-Incorporated so stay tuned folks!
I've decided to make a song for Halloween this year again, I think it turned pretty cool :). Tell me watcha think!
I felt a new newspost would be cool since the old one was very... old. I had the idea to write another newspost with more NG related useful links but I want to try to write something long in English - which is not my native language - and see how I do. So yeah there is no real subject to this blog, it's just what I feel like saying to the Newgrounds community. Therefore, if what follows doesn't interest you, don't bother leaving a puerile comment.
Alright, school has started again and the rhythm I have to follow now is really different from the one I had during the holidays, no more entire nights spent on the PC watching films and chatting on messenger. I'm quite having troubles to stand the studies pace. I'm in 11th grade this year, I should currently be a senior but I repeated this year since 11th grade is weighty if I want to study in a famous college in the future.
As a consequence, I study a lot and try to really focus on studies. I've thought about leaving my account for a year or something to concentrate on highschool but it didn't work, I couldn't resist to check the Portal as soon as I had a little free time. I came to a compromise between NG and real life; I try to limit myself to doing the lists updates, posting a bit and depositing. I gave up reviewing, the reviews I was posting were too long and I couldn't stand at a standard pace with this length of review; I'll write a review every now and again when I really like a submission.
The following part is quite personal, don't judge me, I only felt I could share this with you. Recently, I went through some problems in real life regarding to my ex-girlfriend and my feelings. We separated before the summer holidays began and it was like a shock to me, she was my first girlfriend and I couldn't imagine that happening. I made some research and I found that people usually think the first love will be the last, I guess that what I thought when I was with her. I was depressed deep in my heart but I tried to hide it as much as I could, but it went even worse. I spoke to some close friends and even to my best NG buddy about it, that was a weight off my mind.
Sorry about the emo part, let's go down to business. I've been listening to some new music these days, musicians I wasn't use to listen to. I've listened a lot of Sting's albums, I must say he's on the most brilliant musician I ever discovered; he has a fantastic sense of melody and his voice... the world wouldn't be the same without his voice. I advise you to listen to several of his solo albums - Mercury Falling or Ten Summoner's Tales - the compositions are great. I've been listening to a lot of jazz as well since I'm going to study guitar in an advanced jazz guitar school. I particularly liked a certain saxophone player called Joshua Redman, I recommend you to listen to all his albums if you like modern jazz. The groove is brilliant and the compositions are complicated and full of complex time signatures - I love it as I usually listen to progressive metal.
Definitely a lot of new things happen to me music-wise, my band and I are going to go in a professional studio to record our compositions, this will happen during the X-mas holidays. We visited the studio and it's pretty kick ass, we'll have access to professional recording and mixing, I'll make sure to post pictures and videos of our recording sessions. We have three complete compositions and I'm composing two new songs so we'll have a total of five songs to record. If you are interested you can check our Newgrounds account - Acid Goo.
Well that's all for now, feel free to comment on any subject that is dealt with in those paragraphs :).

When you review a request posted on this thread, you gain either 6 points if you put "Review Request Club" at the bottom of your review or 5 points if you don't add this little signature. That's the basic points system.
Though, in the old thread, we introduced extra points imputed to the most active users. You can benefit from three sorts of extra points:
1) You gain +7 points if you completed all the requests of the past week - that aims to encourage the members to review more.
2) You gain +3 points if you posted at least once in the thread during the past week - keeps the thread more often on the C&C main page and bring us more attention ;).
3) And finally, you gain +5 points when you refer a new member - the user you referred must mention you in his joining post.
In the end of the week, the list updater - at the present time, I - creates a list according to this point system. I hope this is clearer than the post on the first page and if anyone still doesn't get the system after this accuracy, they can try to complete reviews and wait for the update or just forget this club.
