GoodL's News

Posted by GoodL - 2 weeks ago


In case any of you missed it last time I posted about it, around a month ago I started doing a new podcast with some old friends of mine. It's called "Even More Sound", we talk about music. It's an album club, like a book club for albums, where we choose some albums to listen to based around some theme, listen to them for a few weeks, and then get together to talk about the albums and record the episodes.


The latest episode's theme was "Cars on the Cover". We talked about the Denzel Curry album ZUU, Kool Kieth's Sex Style, and Cake's B-Sides and Rarities. It was a fun one, and we also included some outtakes and the end.


If you like music discussion, and are looking for a new podcast to listen to, it might just be worth checking out! I've decided not to upload it to Newgrounds because it isn't NG-related at all, but you can find it on Anchor and Spotify. Here are some links:

Thanks, Newgrounds!

Hey all, I just released the first episode of a new podcast I'm making with some old friends of mine. It is an album club (like a book club, for albums), where every few weeks we choose a couple albums based on some theme, we listen to them, and then we get together to talk about them. The podcast is called "Even More Sound", and if it sounds interesting to you, you can check it out here:

Anchor: https://anchor.fm/even-more-sound

Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1yY7EEJ9sm27V4FZXdZtVr

The quality of the first episode is pretty poor because we had to compress the file way down to be able to upload it, but we've come up with a way to get around that for future episodes. Since it doesn't have anything to do with NG, I think I'm going to keep it off of here for now, but if there's interest here I'll consider it in the future. Happy listening, everyone! And thanks for stopping by :)

I've had so much going on in the irl over the last week or two that I haven't had much time to work on creative projects, unfortunately. That being said, I figured I'd post a general update regardless so I don't feel like I'm not doing anything productive.


First off, @ACoupleOfCrickets is still going strong. If you haven't checked it out, it's a podcast that @littlbox and I make weekly where we talk about music, movies, art, news, and most importantly, Newgrounds. If you're a NG-lover, be sure to check that out, might find some gems in the portals that you missed each week!


Speaking of podcasts, I'm actually starting a new one! It's (most likely) going to be called "Even More Sound". I've had an album club (like a book club, for albums) with some old friends of mine for over a year now and we've decided to start recording it. If you're something of an audiophile, and want to hear other audiophiles talk about music, you should check it out! Our first episode will be coming out in the next couple of days, and we'll be talking about the new Carly Rae Jepson; Tyler, the Creator; and Flying Lotus albums that came out over the last two weeks. It'll be a good time. I don't know if we'll be posting it on Newgrounds or not, since it doesn't have anything to do with NG. I don't usually get much interaction on these posts, but if anyone wants to weigh in on whether I should post it here or not, I'd really appreciate that.


I'll be participating in the Wick Editor Game Jam here on NG. I haven't yet started my project in any real capacity since I haven't had the time recently, but starting next week I should have a lot more free time that I can dedicate to that. In the mean time, I've tried to be as involved with the Wick community as possible, helping people get their projects started. I'm certainly no expert myself, but I want this jam to be as good as possible and I'd like to think that we can all help raise each other up, that way we can get some awesome submissions for the jam. I'll be updating my progress on my entry here on my page as I go along. Everyone go check out http://wickeditor.com/ , it's awesome!


@FlowDownStream will be coming back soon! We've been having some delays that I haven't spoken about publicly yet, but we're getting there and everything should go back to normal for us before too long. Stay tuned.


Finally, I had a couple hours of free time yesterday. Not enough that I felt like I could get any substantial work done on any main projects, so I animated this gif instead!

That's all for now. Have a great day, everyone!

USING WICK EDITOR TO MAKE GAMES

iu_21207_5484611.png

So Wick Editor is a really neat little browser-based software, very similar to older versions of Flash. Tom made a news post about 12 hours ago (at the time of posting this) announcing that we're going to have a Wick Game Jam, which sounds awesome to me! I decided to take the opportunity to learn my way around the software so that I can hopefully participate. I made this little test game (by no means a completed game) which, if you'd like, you can check out here:

https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/games/1326613/preview

Probably should read the Author Comments before you give it a go.


I said this in the news post too, but if some people want help getting started with Wick, I might be willing to help if I can. Keep in mind, I just learned of the software today, so I'm an absolute noobie too, but I'm hoping that if we can all help each other out then we can get more entries (and better entries!) in the jam! Not to mention that I just think Wick Editor is cool and want to help spread it.


Here's the newspost about the jam too, in case you missed it:

https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1441142


Edit April 26- Animated this in Wick Editor as well!

FlowDownStream Season 2 premieres February 23, 2019. One week from today.

Here is the trailer for the upcoming episode:



We hope to see you there. I'd like to say thank you to the Newgrounds community for all the support we received in the first season, and I really hope you all enjoy the second season even more! We've got a lot of things planned and we're using a new system for developing the episodes that should hopefully bring the series to new heights.


If you're not familiar with the series, you can check it out on our page here on Newgrounds. We are an art collective that formed here on NG; I am very privileged to work with a such a wonderful team of like-minded individuals.


The majority of the music in the show (as well as in the trailer above) is made by Sro (@DoctaBGL) who just happened to drop a great new album last month that you can listen to on bandcamp.


In other news, the podcast @littlbox and I have been doing weekly (A Couple Of Crickets) has had the pleasure of featuring some lovely guests recently, including @DoctaBGL, @PoliWall (briefly including special guests @BarfBart and Dad Wyrick), and most recently @WillSpencer. We include a "Newgrounds Spotlights" section in every episode, in which we give shoutouts to our favourite submissions every week, and then we generally proceed to talk about movies, cartoons, music, and the like. We'll be having @CzySzy on the podcast next week!


That's all for now. Tune in to FlowDownStream on Saturday, February 23rd at 5 PM Eastern Time. See ya there!

Figured I should make a little post welcoming in the new year. 2018 was by far my most active year I've had on Newgrounds since I started coming here in ~2012. I'm pretty proud of my collection of work from last year and I hope to surpass it again this year. A pretty big milestone for me was hitting 100 followers, which I know isn't a lot, but it sure is meaningful for me. FlowDownStream did much better than I ever could have expected, and we're starting Season 2 in February, which I expect to do even better. We've got some wonderful new team members and the first episode is already looking very promising! Most of my creative output for the foreseeable future is going to be FDS-related, but I am currently working on a fun little podcast with @littlbox called "A Couple of Crickets"!

Here's a fun thing that has happened to FlowDownStream recently: I made a frontpage post from the FDS account a few days ago, and within 25 minutes it got its first reaction. Also, for 2 whole days, its only reaction. Sounds like it would be a bit of a bummer, right? But look who the reaction is from:
5484611_154680498172_ScreenShot2019-01-04at12.28.00PM.png
Tom was also one of the first followers we had on the FDS account, and I can't even begin to describe how amazing that is to me. His support really means more to me than I could ever put to words.

Just a few more things I'd like to say here:
First of all, on January 18th my friend and frequent collaborator Sro (@DoctaBGL) is putting out a new album titled "wot". It's definitely something you're going to want to check out if you like trippy, mind-bending music. He makes most of the music in FlowDownStream and also provided the soundtrack (the only good part, lol) of my first game, Platform Picasso. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. You can follow him on his website, his Twitter, and his Bandcamp.

@littlbox is working on a full feature-length film called "Talentless", which is a massively exciting project. Keep up to date with its production from his website.

And I guess that's all that I really care to write about at the moment. Thanks to everyone here on NG for making this such an awesome community for small artists. Best place on the web, by far. I couldn't be happier to see how well Newgrounds is doing right now, with the flood of new artists and the supporter milestones, not to mention all the great site updates. I can't wait to see it continue growing and improving.

Thanks again.
-GG

First new animation from me in months. It's just a little thing I put together for fun. My girlfriend's been talking about babies a lot lately, so I thought maybe I'd shed some light on how I feel about those horrible little monst...babies.
https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/721747

Hope to round off the year (my most productive year on Newgrounds since I've been around) with a couple more maybe little shorts like this one, and for those of you who follow FlowDownStream - at least one more episode as well. 
Thanks, NG. Love ya.
-GG

What a big ol' meme. Glad I got to be a part of the Shrek Retold project.
