I've been off for a long time now. Well over a year. I've been attending Alfred University, learning arts and stuff. I'm thinking about becoming an art teacher. You know, work with kids and stuff. I'm sorry if you attended my page frequently enough to be disappointed when you realized I wasn't submitting anymore. Sorry about that.

It's a good thing I stopped though. I spent way too much time on deviant art critiquing other peoples work for no real pay off. If I had continued doing so, I wouldn't have had any where near as much time to focus on my work. My music is sounding so much better now, as is my craft in general. I'll be uploading more later, I have a lot of interesting things from this year. It's almost over too. Gah!

I'll have more updates later but for now, check out my music page on newgrounds

mwahahahawha ham, awhaw ah aAAHHHGANSSHSHHRHS!!! COUGH! cough, cough.... ahem!

I've been off for a while, please, let me explain...there's alot, so i'll try to sum it up in short paraphrases that are simple to follow.

OK! Here goes...

AP studio had me makeing tons of crap and it was taking up alot of my time. Chrous, had concerts to jam for. Track, breaking school records. New girl friend=quality time away from computer. School's websense=no more deviant art (I updated my page through the school's computers.) Lazy (primary reason why I wasn't on a bit sooner.) Physics, only final I had to study for this year so obviously, it took up alot of my time. Band, practicing, music...i'll get back to you on that. Cartooning...SDFNSyrmw!!! Oh, and I had alot of college stuff to do. I'm off later this year, so my arts gonna get better...hopefully.


OK!!!! I've been up to alot, but I'm back, and I'm here to stay. I really miss this community. So many nice people, so much cool art. I just can't stay away forever. I was afraid to return without something big like a cartoon to show for my time away, but it just couldn't happen. I really didn't even have the time to work on any cartoons. However, for those of you that are curious, I'm working really hard on a new one right now...what's it about? Oh, you know...our old favorite super hero VOMIT CAT!!! ZOMG!!!!!

Yeah, he's getting all animated like to save the day. I even worked up a nice little theme song. There's also a collab that I promised mr. ballistic i'd work on with a while back that's gonna get started up real soon, so I'm gonna have some serious work on my hands! Needless to say I'm really glad alot of you decided to continue watching me! It makes me feel like I havn't missed a beat...though the 200+ devantion count will have me guessing otherwise...sigh. I'll start looking at stuff tommorow, as it's really late, but trust me, i'll get to it! ARRRRRR!

Now, for those of you that think i'm just going to dissapear again, let me tell you,...YOU'RE SO DAMN WRONG. I just got a new laptop and i'm on it 90% of the day now that summer is around (I'm not a beach kind of guy.) I just got this insane connection from my dad's office that hooked me up with $20,000 worth of animation equipment. I'll probably be sticking to flash but i'll try and learn how to use the more advanced things latter. I'm going to have alot of time on my hands, so maybe you'll see some more advanced things out of me soon...teehee.

Also, I've been expierimenting with music. I've been getting alot better and i'm looking to promote myself somehow...check out the myspace page and tell me what you think www.myspace.com/quarldnb

ARRRR, hope you all remember me!!! TAFFY!!!! *twitch

So yeah...my birthday was today (the 9th). It was cute. My only complaint though is that I'm a year closer to dying senile in some wacked out over the hill house. I mean, GUHHH, I can be drafted now. Arrr. 18...NSRFMWSRTMSRTYM STH I liked being 17! 17 was a good year, it was like, "HEY, LOOK AT ME I'M 17, AND I TYPE IN CAPS LOCK TO MAKE A POINT!!!" and i'll never have the oppertunity to be 17 ever again. GAAAAHHHFHHHHHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

In other news, my chorus sang at Carnege Hall, I cos played at a nerd festivle, I have a new girl friend, I'm working on several cartoons, though I'm thinking of scratching one of the projects (Pico Day is coming up wayyy tooo quick), my track team beat the shit out of another track team (score: 129 to 13), I love the college I'm gonna be going to later this year, and I can buy porn and cigarettes...though I really couldn't care for either.

Did I forget anything? Oh yeah, I'm working on a song for a collab flash with mutant wombat :iconmutantwombat: .Arrr, it's sounding sick. I'm also still trying to get the collab with Mista Ballistic :iconmrballistic: but I swear god doesn't want it to happen :( lol.

Arrr, with my silly little gov. project done (honestly, it was like shitting butter compared to some of my more serious stuff) I can now look forward to a possible four new toons. I started a new character based flash. I pulled two ugly preview pics (I still need to make backrounds)...

img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10…

The characters are Rue and Riley. It's another romance toon. This will be my first character based flash to incorporate voice actors. Don't worry; I'll actually spend time with the lip synching to make it look good (compared to my dumb humor flash toons that I shit out.)

I also started a cartoon for PICO DAY!!! If you don't know what that is, here's a link to last years Pico Day www.newgrounds.com/collection/… It's basically a Newgrounds holiday celebrating the newgrounds mascot pico. Arrrr. I remember when Pico's school first came out. I rocked at that game. Sucks though...due to computers getting faster I can't beat the game anymore. Bah.

I'm also hopefully going to be collaborating with MrBallistic :iconmrballistic: if I can get the fla. file to work. For some reason my program wont open the file. BAH. I also have to work on another class flash toon, this time around it's English: research and term paper. I'm doing a report on violent media and it's influence on America's youth. YAY!! I'll have fun with that one.

Now, for the features!

:iconlunar-image: Lunar-Image aka my cousin that lives three or four hours away from me! He's going to college! YAY!!! He's also quite the sexy artist. He does like...digital stuff! It's cool! Trust me ;)

:iconhera-of-stockholm: Indeed, quite the intellect. Hera-of-Stockholm pumps out some of the hottest digital stuff around. She has her own style that's so friggen taffy, it's like,...well...taffy!! Check out her gallery.

:iconbroken-day: broken-day used to be :icondaisaigai: but changed names for whatever reason. Dunno...maybe she got bored after getting 1000 page views and decided to start over again. Whatever the reason, she has some sick anthro/animal stuff. Very taffy indeed.

:iconeternaladdict: EternalAddict has a lot of free time on her hands this week, so she's gonna be pumping out a ton of new stuff I think. She writes sick poetry, and does some of the cutest dead people drawings I've seen since sliced bread. Deffinatly worth checking out.

:iconmutantwombat: Mutantwombat is a sick flash animator with untapped potentail flowing out of every pore of his body. If he focused on his animations, I know he'd be like...God and stuff. Also he does tons of sick character drawings.

Arrr, that about does it for the features for now... i'm gonna leave this journal entry up for a good while, so please, if you actuly read all this, go look at some of those people's art. They're very sexy and talented people who deserve the love so look into it, mmmm k?

Also, I put a few new songs up on newgrounds, and i'll have one more track by Friday (Deduction) so go listen to that stuff, download it and if you have a newgrounds account, vote five! I'll love you for ever if you vote five. I want to earn a weekly top five track and possibly get some more exposure...that would be cool.... www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.… www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.… www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.… (all the links lead to the same place :lol: )

That's about all I have for you this time around. TAFFY!!!!

Vote, leave a review, whatever. Support the toon. If it comes thorugh with a good score/ good review average it's more likely to get exposed, so vote high...for me ;) . Also, don't forget to check out the music pages of the guys who made the sound for the toon. They kick ass.

In other news I've been asked by several of my teachers to do some cartoon stuff, so i'm gonna be busy working on those things for a bit. I'll post the stuff here as I get the stuff done, but I won't have another character cartoon for a little bit. I'm thinking really hard as towards what to do next, but it's challenging because I have to settle on a song first. Eh, Taffy...

Ar, i'm working really freaking hard on this thing. I'm trying to get 5% done each day, but it's so hard to keep up. HAR!!! In any case I took a few screen shots from the cartoon to tease you all with. I tried to pick the most interesting ones to show off which was hard to do considering I currently have 1321 frames to choose from... in any case, here are the screen shots...

img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10… img.photobucket.com/albums/v10…

So yeah, I hope that doesn't spoil anything too much. I hope to have this toon done and out within the next few weeks. If I work diligently, that shouldn't be a problem, but hell, I'm so damn lazy. In any case, I'm having fun with this project. This is deffinatly the coolest looking Taffy i've ever worked on. It's running at 24 fps, so it's really smooth. I've deemed that almost anything at 24 fps looks good, even poop (though I have yet to prove that.) Well, I'm going back to work right about now. I don't want to fall behind schedual. TAFFY!!

A kind fellow deviant recently did a suprise feature of some of my work right recently... :iconbroken-day: Yessss, feels good knowing that someone could be so kindly for free. :lol: In any case, here's a link to the entry (in case you don't believe me)...

broken-day.deviantart.com/jour…

Yes cat!

In other news, I recently put out my love story cartoon to NewGrounds for Valentines day. Go check it out!

www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…

It got archived with the other V-Day toons so it's been getting a few extra hits here and there. It's almost to 1000 views. ARRR

I also made a special V-Day song, go check it out!!

www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.…

"Contraptions". Also, if you havn't checked out my audio page in a while, listen to some of my newer songs. Pyramids has some fun polyrythems that I worked really hard on, and Emulation is just really weired, but people have been downloading it, so it must be good, right? In anycase, if you have a newgrounds account, help me out by voting up my songs. I'll love you forever :)

Well, that about ties everything up...OHHHHH, almost forgot, I'm working on a brand new cartoon. Think: the style of "Laura's Paramour" meets the smoothness of "Dolphins Will Die," combined to make one sick rave cartoon. Here's a link to the song i'm using...

www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.…

"Out of Control" is a song that is by all means, out of control. Yeah. I'm actuly allready 34% done with the toon. It's running at 24 frames per second and it's looking really nice. ARrrrrrrRR~!!11!!

Does that cover everything?....yeah, mostly...Taffy...

So, recently a bunch of dolphins swam into a lake thing near my house and got trapped. Ummm, that was weired considering dolphins don't ever swim any where near my town. And to have about 100 trapped in a lake not but five miles away from my house, even weirder. Unfortunatly they all died of cold, or hunger or something. Fact is, despite their intellegence, they some how managed to kill themselves via entrapment.

In any case I plan on making a cartoon dedicated to the happening, and actully, have allready started animating. I have five seconds done, and the toon itself will only last 37 seconds. Given how short the toon is going to be I'm going to expieriment by doing the entire thing at 30 fps for added sexyness.

Also, I'm getting a little jittery as V day is just around the corner. I'm getting really stoked about uploading my Love Story to Newgrounds. Also, I made a really funny V Day card that completly puts last years gift to shame. Her's a link to a pic of last years gift...  www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

I might upload the card into my scraps section come V day. There's someone i'm thinking of giving it to, but I'm not sure if the card is right...it might be a bit over the top :lol: I'd say the card is hilarious, if not shocking, but I don't want the person I'm giving it to to get the wrong idea lol. :)

Well that about wraps up this journal entry...oh yeah, almost forgot. My leather jacket was stolen :( . Now i'd say this journal entry is all wrapped up.

I just recently finished another flash toon...

www.deviantart.com/deviation/4…

I made it in two days for a physics calss presentation.

Also, if you havn't allready checked it out, go watch Love Story...

www.deviantart.com/deviation/4…

I'm trying to find out if I can legaly post it on Deviant art, so it will continue to remain in my scraps section until I can find out. (The song might be copyrighted or something. I don't think the band, or the current record company that backs them would care so much, but Deviant Art on the other hand is a differnt story. They'd remove the toon and ban me.)

In any case, I think i'll start working on a new cartoon soon. It will be another installment in the Quarl series (meaning it will follow the same style as Quarl's Crash and Quarl's Love Story.) I'm thinking of using Viewtiful-Masta's "Out of Control." He's a Newgrounds artist. In anycase, the cartoon will be about a kid who goes to a Rave and dies of some weired drug. Dunno, well see what happens...

Why is it a scrap you say? Just read the cartoon description while it's loading.

In any case, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. At long last, the deed is done, and I never have to see it again...untill Valentines Day, when I post it on NewGrounds, but for the most part it's done. Thank God.

Yeah! That's right. I got cartoons coming out of the wood works real soon. I'm 90% done with the love story. I'll post it in my scraps section here when I'm done with it, and I'll hold off till V-Day for Newgrounds, simply because I love you all so much more!

I also have a physics project due Friday...I wrote up the script, and planned on voice acting it over the weekend, but my friend was too sick to come over (he has mono). In any case, I hope to get that started and done on schedual. Actually, knowing me, i'll probably try begging the teacher for more time before trying to get this bitch of a project done. Expect something along the lines of Vamos, but in English, and way better.

With all that said and done, I would like to say that I have some more newgrounds music for you people to listen to and download/vote 5 for (if you have an account that is.) www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.…

The new songs are "Buttons" and "Transmissions." Check them out. I'm working on another song, but I'm holding off on it for a little while. I want to see if I can find an MC for the track, because I think it's good enough for one.

Well that's about all and about my happenings and events. Glad you could stop by...

And he lived to tell the tale...lucky son of a bitch. I wish I'd get hit by a car. Then I could use the story to get chicks! Well in any case I figuered you sickos would love to see a pic...

www.deviantart.com/deviation/4…

Tis an unfortunate thing. He is more machine than man now...which is doubly strange considering he used to be a dog.

In any case, im 74% done with my love story flash cartoon. It's gonna be sexy. Hope to see you here this V day for the toon...oh, and if it matters to any body, would you like a happy ending, or a sad ending? Because im a coin toss away from deciding this on my own...

Good news bad news time!!

Ahem, the good news...

With my return come back my old promises. I started to work on The Love Story Flash cartoon again. I don't plan on releasing it until Valentines Day, but who knows. If you're all really nice to me, maybe I'll post it here a few days in advance... :wink: ,and with that in mind, I'm already 60.7% done with the toon! I predicted that it would take me about three months to get the toon done. So with only two months left until the NEW deadline, I guess you could say I'm actually a month ahead of schedule. Yay!

I also got a few really awesome drawings coming here soon. Hopefully you'll like em.

If you haven't already checked out my music page on New Grounds, DO IT.

www.newgrounds.com/audio/view.…

If you have an account, do me a favor, AND VOTE 5. I need the points. People zero vote songs for no reason, and then my sound doesn't get heard. :(

Well, that's the good news in a nut shell. Now for the bad news!

Wait; there isn't any bad news... :love:

With that in mind I got some things to say!

-I made a website for college... quarlart.tripod.com

-I have been expieramenting with digital music (it's on my college website)
-My bro is getting married?
-Hell has frozen over??
-I had an abortion???

Well bad news aside I can honestly say that my life is looking up! Which is more than what can be said for all my silly friends who seem to get more and more emo every day.

I can't hink of much more to say, but I certainly as hell will take a good look at all of you're art tommorow, when it's not so late! Good night internet. I missed you.

FLASH!! (and porn)

Mon Jun 5, 2006, 3:48 AM
This is the Header!!!

Woah, guess what? I just recieved and reinstalled Flash!! It took so damn long to get back. I wasn't able to get it back but thanks to :iconorangeperson: and :iconericaf815: I can finaly start animating again!! It feels good to be back in the biz.

In related news, Im taking down the portion of the love story I had been showing off here and im saving it for valentines  day. By then, you'll have forgotten the half of the cartoon you have seen here, and will enjoy the whole thing. I hope.

Im 1/3 done with the cartoon I started after reinstaling flash. It's a cartoon with no plot. Just goodness. Im making it so that I can get back into the swing of things.

Well I have to go head for school now. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them. I like to hear your thoughts...umm, but not in that kind of way.

This is the footer...strangly it's not less than or any more amusing than the header...
Seriously I do, but I love me too, and to prove it I finnaly updated my parkour website with some VIDEOS!!!! Only thing is, they're short and they have no music. Oh well...CHECK EM OUT!!! dynamicliberation.tripod.com/i… !!! dynamicliberation.tripod.com/i… !! dynamicliberation.tripod.com/i… !!!

You can thank :iconericaf815: for having a camera device on her camera. Also check out her pics of me and Sinh. Good stuff. www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

Oh yeah, all the above links lead to differnt pictures. Im sorry if I confused you with the videos.

Also, it's been a while since I went on the internets. I think to commemorate my three day absence, i'll post Pildoras and Vamos on NewGrounds. I havn't done that yet, so maybe I should. For those that are confused... Pildoras: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… And Vamos: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

If you actuly read all that, I congratulate you with this... www.explosm.net/movies/124/


NOODLES!!
Yes thats right. Busy day indeed. Well, one piece is actuly just an old fractal, the other is new. Bah!

FLASH: Still don't have it. I swear, when I get it back im going to finish the cartoon I was working on with Evan. I won't be able to show it off here because the file size will be too big...but i'll make a preview for it here. Also, if you want you can check out the scraps section to see some flash Taffy.

PARKOUR!!: Getting back into things. I hurt myself doing a flip off a park bench about a month ago but im getting back into it! I can land front flips on flat ground again, and I finaly figured out what I was doing wrong with my handsprings. I also landed an awsome arieal off a hill. Hopfully i'll get some pictures up with in the coming weeks!

LIFE: Well it depends. If we're talking about Life cereal I would say tasty. But if we're talking about me I would say good.

Anything else?: Not really.

Thanks for stoping by and reading all that! Or if you skipped all of that and just read this than shame on you!
Oh snap! I've been taged by :icondaisaigai: What's all this then? Well...

RULES:

The 1st player of this little game starts with the topic Six Wierd Habits and/or Things About Yourself.
The people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 wierd habits/things, as well as state this rule in a concise manner. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their page comments and tell them to read yours...

So with that out there, I begin now to list six of my wiered habits...

1) When drawing, I tend to reverse the image of what I want the drawing to look like in my mind, then I go with that. This way I get to practice on my bad side and work out my brain a little. It's a lefty/righty situation. Try it next time!

2) I think highly of how others view me. This might not sound wierd, but it's not as if I want others to view me as a normal person. I act in very bizare ways and say odd things to stand out. I like being called a sketch ball, and if for one second you think im normal, I will dance on a table at you.

3) I talk to myself. Helps me focus.

4) I don't make proper eye contact. Eyes scare me.

5) I love petting animals. This one time my spanish tutor was over my house for a 2 hour session. I was petting my dog and nodding my head the whole time.  Also, I will pet an animal even when it tries to bite me. Just makes it that much more fun. It becomes a game for both the animal and me.

6) I can't work outside of class. I always get distracted by other things. If I don't get my homework done in study hall, I probably won't get the homework done at all. Sucks.

Well thats that. Now on to tag my only 6 people!

Tagged!:
1)ericaf815
2)Lunar-Image
3)Ryan516
4)Trinin
5)OrangePerson
6)Natthew
Yeah, decided that for this journal entry I would rather advertise for my friends than talk about myself. Erm, click on a pic that looks sexy to you...or just go through them all. They're all new to dev art so they could use the page views.

:iconericaf815: :iconlunar-image: :iconryan516: :icontrinin: :iconorangeperson: :iconnatthew:

Yeah, i'll let you wander about their pages aimlessly.

Oh, for those that are curious, no I havn't got my old computer to spit out all the old flash data. The Love Story may forever be gone...
Yeah, erm. Bad news. My computer is FUCKED up. Nothing is working. Im submitting this journal entry on the schools computer.

Erm, with my computer down, there is a chance I have lost alot of my art to the void of my computer. The love story flash cartoon? Might be gone. That other toon I was working on? Might be gone. There is one last thing I can do out of desperation, but I have to have some one else do it because im too computer challenged.

If it works, i'll make a journal entry about it, but for the next week or two, im not going to be able to submit anything to Dev. Bummer.

Anyways,...how was your Easter?
