Usually I don't see the point in making new accounts when I can just revive old fossils but I think it's time for a change. I made a new account http://thefrustratedanimato.newgrounds.com/ for when I actually make animation worth showing, not like the shyte that has been collecting dust for the past 5 years.

Yep, community college. Doing what? Digital animation. Will I release any videos? Probably. Anytime soon? Not likely. Will FancyFilms re-open? Probably. Anytime soon? Not likely. But college, even though I'm only in my third day, is giving me a kind of drive to actually finish stuff. But not anytime soon. Am I a procrastinating fuck face? Probably.
But I do have some good ideas.
Probably. That is of course If I make any more animations. But what I'm really concerned about is finding a host for my movies. It's pissing me off because whenever I find a host where I think it's just as good as 5gbFree there always that one fucking thing that prevents me from using that host: Download This File. I don't want anyone downloading my fucking movies onto their computers.
On that note, since March I've been working on two movies. I'm not setting dates. I've been really nursing these animations, working here and there over a long term plan. They'll probably be released in the summer. It's pretty much lame comedy that really makes no sense, but hey, it's going to be a hell of a lot better than Fisherman Tim anyway. But I'm not releasing anything until I finish all the movies that are in Development Hell, which should take a few months. I ain't rushing anything for shit.
Well I've been in a real animating mood this Christmas and I've in the process of making a few movies. One of my movies is about half done and will be released soon, another one is slightly on the go and will take a few months to complete, and I'm thinking of redoing a movie I quit last year. It's great being back on the horse again.
After 5 months, I've deicded to get back animating. I got a few ideas. One is already in the works. But I don't give a rat's ass if I please the public this time around. I'm just gonna animate for the sake of animating something. *middle finger*

I made this video back in April, I dunno, I just decided to post it for no apparant reason.
If anyone aks, I'm using a Black Squire/Fender Bronco Bass. Recently, literally a month ago today I got a new bass, an Olympic White Squire/Fender Jazz Bass. I have yet to record myself playing it.
Thursday is my final school exam for the first half off the year. That means as soon as I come home I'll probably be on the ol' tablet pounding out another movie. Like most movies I've worked on since M1A1, I've been working on this one sparingly. I would have had it finished weeks ago if there weren't any exams. it's one of the those few projects that I like working on.
I've decided a new rule: I won't go on and make a new animation unless I actually enjoy working on it (I kinda sound like DiamondArmada there). That's what happened to Numb, it was one of those few movies that I really enjoyed making. There was detail, but also simplicity. This next one however will have a little less simiplicity and a little more complexity, which is why I only "like" animating it. I guess this is partly because I still haven't mastered making my characters body movements fluid yet. Hell I'd give anything to be on the ranks of Adam Phillips, TheSwain, and SamBakZa, talented talented artists.
So, the movie I'm working on is the fifth episode of my main cartoon series. I haven't released an official episode (I've only release shorts or cameos since) since July 2007, and that is over a year. In fact, I actually started the fifth episode on New Year's Day 2008 and worked sparingly on it for most of 2008. Problem is though I was still feeling the effects of M1A1 as I stated many times before so I on;y worked on it every so often. Finally in September I just said "Fuck it, I'm done" and I completely stopped the animation. So now I'm making a brand new Episode 5 with a completely different storyline.
But I will go back to the original one and probably redo the entire thing from scratch. I've watched it the for first time since September a couple weeks ago and now I realized how disgustingly out-of-synch it was. Probably because I was still using 12fps at the time. I've moved on to 18fps like TheSwain in his early days. I found it was so much better to animate when there's fast movements. I tried using 20 and even 24 fps but it was too much for me. But the episode will probably be finished somewhere in the late future because I got amazing new concepts for episodes 6 and 7 and I probably want to try something new for episode 8. The first official episode I'll release on Newgrounds will be episode 5. I don't have the heart to release the preavious 4 episodes, they would probably get low scores anyway (That was back when i first got Flash, when I didn't have a tablet).
I also want to release another movie I've been working on sparingly since July in my second cartoon series. My friend and bandmate Jonah Smith recorded the voices to his characters way back when and all I need to do is finish the animation. But like I said before, if I work on a project for too long I get bored of it. The unfinished cartoon I mentioned about was over 6 minutes long and only half finished and it's tiring looking at the same shit over and over again. I also got some great ideas for a Star Wars parody and a cartoon involving Oatmeal Crisp (*sarcasticly* Yeah that sounds exciting). But depending on how busy I am with school, the band, and the other animations I'm working on I probably won't attempt them for awhile.
(I hate it when i write long posts like this...)
When I release this next movie I show a picture of each character and a little bit about tem to get an idea of what they're like.
BTW, if there is anyone who know any good file hosting sites similar to the now defunct 5gbFree and/or Ripway for .swf files and webpages contact me ASAP, all my cartoons on my site are down. And I'm really cheap, I'm looking for a FREE one.
In all honesty I thought that Numb would get a much better score than what it did or much more appreciation. It's really wierd. I seem to get good reviews but bad scores. But seriously, I'm not gonna start bitching because it's nothing new or other people have the same problems but what does it take to please you people?
Yeah I'm starting to run out. For the past month it's like liquid insparation was injected into my veins (Not literally, if it did then I'd be 6 feet underground because I was panicing and screaming so much from the pain that the blood pressure blew up all of my nerves) and I was animated a few good movies. Right now I got 3 from the go, 2 of which are part of a series I'm doing and 1 is part of another series i'm doing.
And then is August, each one is either half done or almost complete and yet I don't really have the effort to animate for awhile. I've said it many times before that it was all because of the M1A1 video I made that burnt me out. And it did, for a couple months anyway I couldn't go near my Wacom Tablet.
I'm getting tired, I want to finish but I don't have that same adrenelin rush as I did before. I want to see that video that Tom recommended about that cartoonist or whatever tomorrow but does anyone have any suggestions?
I'm closing out tonight with a joke:
