Gamer Tonight @ Supanova Perth This Weekend!

I'm ready and set for tomorrows first ever SUPANOVA event to come to Perth. You can find me in the "Artist Alley" at my Gamer Tonight table, where I'll be playing some animated footage on a screen and talking to people about stuff (possibly doing silly drawings for $2).

It's taking place at the Claremont Showgrounds from the 28th and the 29th.

Then on the 30th I'm on a plane at 7:30am and on my way to AMERICA!!!

.
/* */
I'll be attending Anime-Expo with Egoraptor, Tomamoto, Princess Aurora, Rina-Chan, Nalem, Spanio, Wonchop and a shit load more people... Not really my scene, but it should be interesting considering the people going. Supposedly David Hayter (the voice of Solid Snake, who is a guest of honor at the event) is a fan of Metal Gear Awesome, so it should be interesting to see Egoraptor meet him.

I've been nice and busy, but everything is going to be fun from here on out.

Hope to see some of you there!

Also if you want a big WOW WTF.. Read my "FLASH CLASS HORROR STORY" that happened to me yesterday. YOU CAN'T WRITE THIS SHIT.

AND ALSO.. Check out my friend Krystals amazing animated short here on Newgrounds.

ALSO ALSO.. I got my hand on HAMISH AND ANDY'S.. "The PEOPLES CHIP". Gravy flavored SMITHS CHIPS FTW.

Special thanks to my friend Nandi for the paper model Richard :)

PERTH SUPANOVA - CLAREMONT SHOWGROUNDS JUNE 27th - 29th

I wasn't sure if I'd be doing this.. But it appears the wheels are in motion and we'll be seeing a Gamer Tonight table at Supanova Perth. For those of you that don't know, Supanova is a pop-culture convention that has frequently been happening in the east of Australia. This is the first time it has ever had a presence in Western Australia.

I'll be sitting around in the "artist alley" at a table (wearing my GT shirt) with the entire series looping on a computer monitor, giving out handouts and talking to whoever feels like chatting. Because the organizers were so late getting back to me, I won't be selling anything.. I'll just be promoting shiz.

It's costing $66 to have electricity at my table! So I'll probably be bringing my wii and a TV to play with my good mate Justin (angry alcoholic chinese guy with an Australian accent who hates everything). We plan to milk the cost of the electricity for all it's worth. ;P

I'll also have one of my "minions" Yammington, who happens to be a student of mine over at the school I work for. This way I can go take a piss without getting the table robbed. He's also a brilliant flash animator and should hopefully be making an appearence with his work here on NG soon.. With a project called "Board Games" (if he finishes it!).

I've been spending the last few days working on a banner and artwork to display at the booth, which I'm rather happy with so far. I've only completed 3 of the characters so far.. Other then that I only have sketches to share.

Detris Riddleston

I still have to draw a shit load more AND colour them.. I'm hoping I can do it before the convention comes around!

Oh and I turned 21 today. Happy Birthday to me!

For my birthday I want a negative comment from PiGPEN and for Wonchop and Gerkinman to fight in my blog. Gogogogogo.

COMIC-CON NEWGROUNDS NIGHT!:
Some of you would have recieved a PM from me regarding this. As of now we're still tossing around ideas of what we'll be doing. We want to arrange a venue where our slightly underage artists and users will be able to attend. At this point in time we are unsure as to where, but myself, Tom and Luis have been discussing it.

Ideas suggested so far:
- Some restraunt that serves asian food (I don't have the link on me)

- Rent out a place for the night (Everyone will be going home afterwards, I had a few people thinking I meant a place to sleep)...

- Bon-fire at the beach with drinks and a grill.

If you're interested let me know over PM so I can get a head count going for Tom and Luis. Thanks! :)

Comic-Con San Diego!


You know that feeling?

2008-05-29 14:02:32 by RubberNinja

You know that feeling where you've been waiting and saving for almost a year and time just flies by? Then just when you reach that final stretch it feels like an eternity?

My life feels like an endless loop of work and class, even though I know this loop ends in 32 days.

Then you get some good news that eases that wait.

I can't wait for my holiday, I want to go now.



Formal PM to Tomius Fulpus:
Greetings Tom Fulp,

Recently myself and some fellow flash animators were discussing viable solutions to prevent our content being stolen and posted on YouTube.

After much discussion, we came up with the perfect solution.

We need to put a spinning flaccid penis in the top left corner of every Newgrounds animation. This way the animated content will not be able to bi-pass the YouTube terms and conditions and they will be forced to remove our content.

I believe this would work better then "water marking" work, as this would leave a more lasting impression on the viewer.

I also believe that this would be true to our standard Newgrounds humour and would appeal to our general audience.

So if you could possibly get Johnny Utah or Stamper working on this FLA for distribution that would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance,

-Ross

Response:
Ahaha I'll pass that along and see what they come up with. :)

I think we can see this being implemented soon. Thoughts, anyone?

UNRELATED STUFF:
Anyway, here's some highlight clips I recorded of the final GT airing.. ON AN ACTUAL TV SCREEN. (A friend asked me to record it!)

.
/* */
Then the following week the other Good Game segment "A Cartridge Affair" made a "mild reference to Gamer Tonight"... Which made me grin.

.
/* */
Also, I'm kinda home sick these past 2 days with a nasty cold. I have a mountain of used tissues next to my keyboard.

I also keep doing that annoying thing where you made a retarded face because you think you're about to sneeze but you don't sneeze and you're just all "aaaaaw one moment one moment I think-- I think-- no.. wait.. no nothing".

AW MAN I HATE THAT SHIT.

Also stop asking me about "WE HATE IT WHEN NEXT GEN", it was a joke. I'm surprised any of your actually took that seriously. Myself and Joe started it when he was living with me for a while.

Also I bought a new webcam off Ebay for $17 and it has lights and everything. So flashy like.

YouTube Content Theft Protection. + MORE



Well, the final Gamer Tonight aired last night on ABC2 Australia - Good Game. So my contract has been fulfilled and I'm a free man.

The last episode will probably go up on the site tonight, but until then you can catch up on the backlog of episodes over here (8 in total for season 2).

Working under those deadlines was hell, so I'm happy to just relax for a while. Sadly I can't really afford to do much with my time due to saving for my trip to the LA on the 30th of June.

So to pass the time I went and bought GTAIV. My friends wouldn't shut up about it and generally they're not all the gaming type. So I went and bought it, though admittedly I was a bit sceptical at first because I hate GTA. I always found the games to be this repetitive sandbox with shitty missions and very poor plot and characters, which I'd get bored of within 30 miutes. But oh my god is this a change. Nikko is such an amazing character, I'm quite interested in the plot and I find the missions very entertaining and cinematic. Not to mention the game looks and plays amazingly, minus a few glitches here and there. Well worth the money if you can spare it.

Also, I was thinking back in the good old days where I use to make Flash just for the hell of it.. Rather then worrying about what others thought. So I decided to start working on a small flash before I head out to LA.. Basically it's just a parody of Newgrounds. There will be rollerskates, video games, talking inanimate objects, cocks, fire, cameo appearances, pop-culture referencing, anime and best of all! Sexual intercourse. We'll talk about the sponsorship and shirts when you get back from Hawaii Tom.

I'm kidding guys, it'll just be a gentle tab in the ribs.

Peace,

-Ross

Gamer Tonight is Finished + Wasting time.


Interview + The END

Hey everyone,

Just recently I was approached by "Rina-Chan/Kagome" who's starting a regular podcast about the Newgrounds community. Basically she plans to interview a different animator/programmer/person of interest every week or 2 and post them on this bloggy thingy whatsit for all to hear.

For some reason she asked me to be her first victim, so I gladly agreed. So if you want to listen to me bable about pointless crap for 20 minutes (not sure why) then this is what you want. If you're interested in doing one to, maybe try PMing her or something.

I also believe she has future plans to do video interviews with Newground artists at Comic-Con. So I guess that's pretty coo'.

Also I'm pulling an all nighter to finish the last episode of Gamer Tonight. My ABC contract finally ends on Wednesday morning, so I'm pushing to meet deadline. If you think "FIGHTER GAMER" is the most recent episode, you're sadly mistaken. There's about 5 new ones up on the site with 2 more coming in the next few weeks.

I plan to make some stupid flash for Newgrounds prior to me leaving for LA on the 30th of June. Not exactly sure what right now, but it will be stupid.

Maybe I should troll Newgrounds with Halo:Awesome Evolved 2!! I still get emails and requests to make "hentai games" from that (yes I know, it's fucking disturbing). Just send me an email about the sponsorship Tom, I know you're already interested in this project. We'll talk about the shirts later.

Also, when we get closer to the date... I'm going to try do a head count of all the NG people going to San Diego Comic-Con (probably gather up some mobile numbers n'shiz so we can find eachother). Because from what I understand this year will be hooooj.

Peace,

-Ross

P.S. Thanks for the GAYMOAR2NITE WID DICK FUCKASS collection page. Flattered, really.
