Thank you so much to everyone who's supported me this far - I'm super excited for what's ahead!


NEW PODCAST

While we're on the Good News Train (choo choo), my pal @GoodL is hosting a new podcast! @TheNewgroundsPodcast (NGP) is shaping up to be something pretty awesome, though not quite as good as ACOCk. :3

That's all for now. Ta ta!

Howdy.


For the last six or seven years, I've had a dream - to make a documentary about Logan Whitehurst.


Logan was an extremely talented artist and musician, with a zany sense of humor to boot. I first discovered him through the works of Jason Steele (Charlie The Unicorn, Llamas With Hats) and Neil Cicierega, who both pointed to him as their inspiration. And the more I discovered about the guy, the more I fell in love not only with the music, but his personality. Logan seemed like a genuinely nice person - something which is hard to come by - and I really wanted to share who he was with as many people as I could.


Here are some animations by @RWappin - who will be animating for the documentary - of a couple of fantastic Logan songs to introduce you to the kind of music Logan made.




Finally, about a year ago, I began contacting people online. Family, friends, fans - anybody I could. I was able to confirm over 40 people to be interviewed, and with my producer Matlock Zumsteg (who started out as just an interview subject, but was so dedicated to the project I bought him onboard) we planned out how we were going to tackle this.


And now, I have a Kickstarter.


If this piques your interest whatsoever, please be sure to check it out. And if you think you know someone who would be interested, share it with them!


https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/connernyberg/your-friend-logan-the-4-track-mind-of-logan-whitehurst


Thank you so much.


Side-note: I apologize for the delays in the last few @ACoupleOfCrickets episodes. This project has been taking up all of my spare time, but I promise Episode 48 will be up by this Sunday.

haha u fell for clickbate

So about a month ago, I hit up my boi @HenryEYES to see if he wanted to a live-action sketch. He had mentioned wanting to do something live-actiong for a while, and I wanted to get back into making more videos after a hiatus this past summer. He seemed keen to the idea, so I typed up something in twenty minutes, we rehearsed a bit in Discord and added bits that seemed funny, and thus "DO NOT OPEN" was born


It took about a month to get together, only because Henry is a klutz (luv u boo) and had to keep reshooting parts. But I shared what we had with some online friends, and everyone seemed to have a positive response. 


That's when @ninjamuffin99 said he would only watch the whole video if it was on Newgrounds. He might've been kidding (probably not), but the idea seemed funny to me. A live-action video?...on Newgrounds??...THAT'S CRAZY!


But, historically speaking at least, there's always been live-action on Newgrounds. One of my all-time favorite creators on the site, @Knox, got his start by posting a couple of silly webcam videos to the site before his series Klay World took off.


And let's not forget that, up until 2016 (when it was taken down for copyright reasons), the single most popular video on the site was the original NUMA NUMA video by one Mr. @GMan250


So, if only to see what response it would trigger (and for the aforementioned ninjamuffin to watch it), I posted the video to Newgrounds.



And two hours later, I get a message from my designated driver Henry...


iu_81426_6075713.png

He wasn't kidding.


iu_81427_6075713.png


This actually caught me off-guard. I was completely ready for the possibility of the video getting blammed by users, but not manually removed off the site by the mods.


So, I took a look in the Terms of Use to see if my video had broken any rules. After all, maybe "NO LIVE-ACTION ALLOWED" is indeed a rule of the site that I hadn't known before.


It isn't. And as far as I know, the sketch didn't have stolen material nor real pornography in it. 


So I shot that guy Tom a message. 


iu_81428_6075713.jpg

And not an hour later, I got back a response.


iu_81429_6075713.jpg


Since it's been republished, it's actually gotten a pretty good response! In fact, we were lucky enough to get the Underdog of the Week award!


iu_81430_6075713.png

But this whole incident made me realize how much some people are absolutely, vehemently opposed to live-action on the site, and I honestly do not understand why. 

Personally, I would love to see live-action grow on this site. Though I understand Tom's reasoning of not wanting to blindly "open the floodgates", I think a live-action scene would help to grow this site even more, and a flowering and more active community would result. 


So, if you are reading this article, and are genuinely distraught that I put up a video like DO NOT OPEN, please let me know your reasoning in the comments below. I'm curious to hear thoughts on either side of this "issue".

In the meantime, if you've got a little bit of Christmas left in you, you can listen to the newest episode of A Couple of Crickets HERE:


That should probably kill whatever Christmas you have left.

Howdy, partners! Hope y'all 're havin' a tootin'-snootin' helluva time, you sons of bi-


*coughs out Southern*


Ahem, I mean hi! How goes it?


Lots of cool things are happening to people everyday, and I've got my fair amount to share! So let's go!...


MUSIC/ALBUM - I mentioned back in August that I was in the midst of making a new album. This album is still in the works, with songs varying from completely done to not even recorded yet. However, progress is being made every day, and I'm really excited with what's turning out. The album's currently titled Nostalgia For Yesterday, and I'm planning on getting it out around Thanksgiving.


I uploaded a track from the album today to give you guys a taste. It's called "Happy Marching People", and it's one of my favorites.



You'll also see some awesome cover art by one @TheDyingSun! She did a fantastic job on this, and you can see the artwork itself here:



In the meantime, got an awesome track going with @GoodL for the Spooktacular that'll knock your socks off and send them to Iowa (where all socks go to die).


And thank you for the love on "Special Little Snowflake"! It was originally supposed to be on the album, but I decided it didn't quite fit with the rest of it. And thanks once again to @Carmet for a kick-(b)ass line.


ANIMATION/MOVIES - Currently working on a non-Lip Heads animation featuring voices from @GoodL and @dogl. It's called "Scam Likely", and it's coming along pretty well! I hope to have it out within a week or so for you viewing pleasure.


Once that's completed, I hope to get a quick Lip Heads out for Halloween. But be warned, it's bound to get SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-


-KY


I'm also working on a number of live-action stuff. Some of you may know that I'm undertaking a feature-length documentary on musician and artist extraordinaire Logan Whitehurst called Your Friend Logan, and that's my biggest priority thus far. If you'd like to keep up with progress, check out the Facebook page HERE.


I'm also finishing up a short film called "Early Bird", which is currently getting a score by Owen Otto, cool dude to all. Once that's done, it'll go up on my mostly dormant YouTube channel.


ACOCk - You kiss your mother with that mouth?


Everything's been going real well with the podcast. Certified demigod @TomFulp has given us and GroundsPatrol our own little section on the frontpage, which is still beyond amazing. Thanks, Tom! (now just bring back the NINJAMUFFIN99 BIRTHDAY COLLAB)


We won't be recording this weekend since GoodL's busy moving to Zimbabwe, but we'll back next weekend with a VERY special guest, so stay tuned!


OTHER - The apartment's been cozy. On the lookout for a roomie to splint rent with, and I'm currently working two jobs to cover living expenses and my Beanie Baby addiction. It's a real problem, guys...


Oh, and I met @NickConter and @MrFelis irl about a month ago! They're a cool couple of crickets.

That's me on the left, sipping some sweet tea. Yum.


Oh, and BOO!


Did I spook you?

Howdy y'all! Cowboy littlbox speaking.


I just got the internet turned on in my new apartment, and now the balance of nature has been restored. It's really awesome/frightening being out on my own, and I'm beginning to look around the city for cool places to hang out, not to mention for jobs to make sure I keep up with the rent. :P


In the meantime, I thought it'd be cool to set up a Ko-fi account! Now you can give me your money FOR FREE! Every little bit helps out with the bills, so if you happen to have some extra cash, ay, you're my new best friend! ⁽ᵘⁿᵗᶦˡ ʸᵒᵘ ʳᵘⁿ ᵒᵘᵗ ᵒᶠ ᵐᵒⁿᵉʸ ᵃⁿᵈ ᵗʰᵉʸ ᶠᶦⁿᵈ ʸᵒᵘ ᵈᵉᵃᵈ ᶦⁿ ᵃ ᵈᶦᵗᶜʰ ˢᵒᵐᵉʷʰᵉʳᵉ⁾


It's awesome to see the traction that Operation 2009 is getting! That was a fun episode to be on, and it was fun hanging with @GoodL, @PsychoGoldfish, and @willKMR at the same time (don't tell Will I enjoyed his company).


I've got some really cool things planned for the next month, including some awesome guests for @ACoupleOfCrickets, some groovy tunes you can jam to, and a decent enough animation. So definitely stay tuned! :D

NEW BANNER



My sweet baby boi @RGPAnims was kind enough to make a new banner for me! Thanks so much Ryan - everybody go check out his quality animations.

AFTER:

_____________


ETC.


In the meantime, here's what else is going on.


  • I'm busy moving out of state atm, but I have an animation that I'm keen to work on as soon as I settle down.
  • ACOCk is still going strong - we're recording Episode 32 later in the week. Be sure to join our Discord so you can listen to episodes LIVE!
  • Currently demoing some tracks for an album TBA later in the year, with a potential release date in November. I hope to start releasing some of those and miscellaneous stuff by the end of the month.


Take care! :)

My very first front page post. This is amazing; I want to cry.


As some of you might know, I co-host a podcast called A Couple Of Crickets with my good e-friend @GoodL, and our latest episode features Aaron Long, famous for his series Sublo and Tangy Mustard and work on Netflix shows BoJack Horseman and Tuca and Bertie, and we interview him extensively (maybe a little too much :P) on his animation background and experience in the industry. You can listen to this episode HERE. He's probably our most high-profile guest yet (@ninjamuffin99 excluded of course), and it was awesome having him on the show. Thank you again, Aaron. :D


Also, with today being the deadline for the Art-Inspired Music contest, I figured it would be great to release a last-minute ditty I came up with for an awesome little illustration by @FLASHYANIMATION. It's a bit short, but I hope I did it some justice. The piece and the song are both called "Moody Robot", and you can check out my song here, and the original illustration here:

Also, @GroundsPatrol sucks. Aaron Long said so.

This post is for for the one hundred people who were kind enough to hit the follow button on my page between October 2016 and May 2019.


Thank you, each and every one of you. It's been a crazy few years on this platform, and I really hope to spend many more here. I've seen so many awesome shorts and pieces, heard some awesome music, played a couple of awesome games, and met some more-than-awesome people here. The Newgrounds experience is like no other, and I'm honored to be a part of that experience for a hundred of you.


So, from the bottom of kidneys, thank you...
