I'm sort of back?

To those who don't remember me (which is probably all of you), I used to be a forum regular. Over two years ago, however, I left. Why? Simple; I hated the forums. I hated them. Don't believe me? Go read through my old blog and forum posts (though I'd greatly appreciate it if you didn't - seriously, I was such a dick back then), in which I constantly vented my anger at the place. But at one point, during one of those episodes, a fellow regular that I also hated, Travis, told me "Okay, do everyone a favor and leave, then." At the time, I just wrote it off as yet another douchey Travis post. But in hindsight, he was right. Why in the hell did I continue to go here despite my immense hatred towards the forum and its community? And it's not just me and Newgrounds, either. I knew people who went to and posted on sites like Tumblr even though they had nothing but contempt for the entire community. And boy did it reflect the things they posted and reblogged. The point is that even though they hated the community's negativity, they ultimately did nothing but add to it. I didn't want to be like that. So finally, one day, I silently left Newgrounds for good.

The forums, at least. I never intended on leaving the site as a whole, since, in all honesty, I love this place. I love the dedication that Tom Fulp and the rest of the staff put into it. I love the near-complete lack of content restrictions. I love how so many animators and game designers became famous through it. I love all the stupid crap I used to watch and play on here as a kid (Zelda dating sim, anyone?). And I'm not being sarcastic about any of that - I genuinely love it. I just hate the goddamn forums.

So why am I back? Because I'm planning on doing actual content. If you look at my last couple of blog posts, one of those details an animated Mickey Mouse porn film called MICKEY MOUSE XXX (yes, the all-caps is necessary). Well after three years, me and that friend are finally getting together to make it. It will be one sexy, sexy video. I promise.

And that's not all. Since last year, I started teaching myself how to draw and animate. And assuming I don't completely give up out of frustration (and believe me, I've been tempted to), you may see even more content from me in the future. I don't know when that'll happen, but I'm excited to get to that level of skill where I can do it.

So yeah, that's about all I have to say. Thanks for reading.

tl;dr I'm back, but done with the forums. I'm making Mickey Mouse porn with some guy, and I spent the last year stabbing a sketchbook with a pencil in an attempt to make halfway-decent drawings.
