Hey, everybody!


I'm proud to announce that @CommanderKuni and I are hosting a collaboration for a NG based cookbook!

If you are willing to participate then please get in contact with either Me or Kuni here on NG and we'll give you access to the Discord server where we are accepting recipe submissions and you might even learn a thing or two.


The cookbook's recipes can be put into one of two categories.

1: Community Recipes (A favorite recipe from a member of the NG community)
2: Fiction Recipes (Recipes inspired by a work of fiction here on NG, Madness, Pico's School, Dad 'n' Me, etc)


We will have sub categories for stuff like Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert as well as both Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic beverages.


The approved recipes will be put into a PDF file that will be accessible to everyone here on Newgrounds for FREE!

That's right! this is a free cookbook! For the Community, By the Community!


We do have some rules for this collaboration though if you want your recipe to be featured.

1. No joke submissions please

2. Don't state any brands or whatever for copyright safety, if you use anything like Kraft Mac or Campbell's sauce just say boxed max and cheese or canned tomato soup

3. You must provide Pictures of you making the recipe, or a prior time you’ve made it. You just have to be the one who took the picture

4. Follow the template listed below

RECIPE NAME
Series: [if you are making a recipe for or based off a series state it here]
Any allergens: [gluten, peanuts, etc.]
Spice level:
Difficulty: [how hard it is to make the dish]
Cook time:

Ingredients

Instructions

[leave your pictures below]


You can also add additional notes at the bottom of your recipe, whether it's a fond memory tied to the recipe (if it's a community recipe) or a small love letter directed to the work of fiction inspired by it (If it's a fiction recipe)


This cookbook is an unconventional love letter to the Community, by the Community. Food has always played a part in many communities and cultures and we wanna bring that to Newgrounds with something you guys can take away from it and learn new recipes from one another.


We hope to hear from you guys soon and that you'll love what we have cooking up when you dive into the endless handbag known as your imagination.


Justice and Tungsten!

Edit: WE’VE DECIDED TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE TO THE 22ND OF NOVEMBER, GET YOUR KNIVES READY FOLKS!!

Hey guys. I’ve decided to take it upon myself to take a short hiatus for a week or so. I’ve been in a constant battle with my mental health after an incident in November that made me feel like I don’t belong in the community and I want to set some hard boundaries with myself and others. I’m sick of being in this loop of self doubt, anger, sorrow and false confidence. And I want to break that pattern. I’m sick of the wounds being reopened every time I’m reminded of the person who made me feel this way. I really hate using the word trigger due to so many times this word has been used in hateful jokes and the stigma behind it but this individual is actually a trigger for me, no matter how ridiculous this sounds.


Anyhow if you need me, you know where to find me.

Hey everyone, thought I'd let you guys know with where I'm at with irl stuff as of recent.


Last saturday I finally managed to get my first Covid jab under sedation. As some of you guys may know I've been fighting to get sedation available for the Covid vaccine for autistic people, people who have sensory issues, and those afraid of needles in general. This is a big step forward in making the vaccine accessible and to help make sure more people are kept safe and vaccinated. And they finally opened the sedation clinic last week, the staff was super charismatic, you can choose different methods of sedation, I chose to go with Nitrous Oxide because that's what i've primarily been fighting for, and they have a therapy dog!!! I kind of still have some residual resentment because of everything that I missed because of this whole conundrum. But I can finally start living again very soon, and I won't be in hermit mode for much longer!


That's pretty much it for now.

Justice and Tungsten!

Yo!

So I guess I should make an official post here of this lil hobby i've picked up, I know that i've told people on twitter and discord about this but not on NG. I've decided to dabble in making character based music playlists.


I've made music playlists inspired by each of the NG Bots on spotify and I wanted to try and hone in on a specific vibe for each bot and what I think they'd listen to.

45 songs each and each playlist clocking in at about 2.5-3 hours worth of music.


For starters this is M-Bot's

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/04RVtwfuqEj5KmKffpzgxd?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

I wanted to go for an energetic and aggressive sounding playlist that he'd possibly listen to when he's chasing down a rule breaking user that's about to get banned.


Next up is A-Bot.

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/6TSfIEGTLnQmYnjVw3Nclu?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

The vibe I wanted to go for him is music that wouldn't fail to get a party started with a lot of hard hitting hip hop tracks and a lil bit of electronic music. Knowing that he's in charge of the audio portal, I wanted to make sure that each track in his playlist has been curated perfectly, plus I had to add some RTJ in there. (Major fan of the pistol and fist!)


And then there's I-bot.

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/6csyfwBqLvwenopxqKcOfV?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

I-Bot strikes me as someone who doesn't care much for lyrics in a song but rather the vibe a song has, He also would probably wanna listen to songs that just scratch the brain in just the right ways, if it's a vibe then it's a vibe.


And for G-Bot's

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/1xHi3FZOtkSMG5VFIfAuj6?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

G-Bot's playlist is very straight forward in what I envisioned when curating it. Just straight up classical music for the classy, sensible, distinguished and educated bot he is, I know that he loves his Mozart so I definitely had to include some in there. A great playlist for getting comfortable by the fireplace and reading one of Jane Austen's many fantastic works of literature, or for rewatching Frasier after a long day of keeping NG tidy and managing all of the site's Grounds Gold.


And now, F-Bot's playlist.

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/1RFRltRbu2VDy3QI598qW6?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

This is a playlist that I had the most amount of fun working on. It was just super enjoyable being able to curate such a fun, cutesy and hyper feminine vibe for this absolute icon with a lot of Y2K, Bimbocore, Future Funk and Hyperpop songs!


And last but definitely not least, P-Bot!

<iframe style="border-radius:12px" src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/4u6NurTRL4QW8TeCrEUY0H?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; fullscreen; picture-in-picture"></iframe>

Now P-Bot's playlist took me a fair amount of time to figure out the vibe I wanted to go for, but I've decided on mainly Electronic with some Rock, DnB, Dubstep and a little bit of Hiphop. He strikes me as someone with a mixed bag music taste and probably likes a little bit of everything.


These playlists were a lot of fun making and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have curating them.

First and Foremost, I wanna wish @TomFulp a very happy birthday and a massive get well soon, Send him all your best wishes, damnit!. You've made a massive impact on the lives here on NG and you will continue to do so through this awe inspiring community, Here's to another year of being such an awesome guy!


Next...

iu_621760_8487394.png

600 FANS OH MY GOD AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THANK YOU SO MUCH I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

This is definitely another monumental W for the books and I wanna thank you all for sticking with me through my highs to my mental health slumps, give yourselves a pat on the back!


And finally my little blurb about the Tarot Collab.

I wanna thank all the artists who have contributed, I wanna thank @BRITTANYNATION for nailing the vibe I wanted to go for when it was time to add music. And I want to thank the wonderful @Stepford ! Your programming prowess helped make this collab as wonderful as it is! All of you who were on the team and those who have shown interest, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I'm surprised at how accurate most of the readings are in the reviews. And i'll still be more than happy to give insight and clarity to any readings you have trouble deciphering.

I wanna thank P-Bot for putting it in his Daily 2nd place spot *smooch* as well as the weekly 4th place *double smooch*

and if you guys haven't checked it out already, I highly suggest you do so, everybody did such a wonderful job on it.


That's pretty much it from me.

Justice and Tungsten!

Hey everybody, I thought I should give you guys an update on where I'm at with things at the moment.


Gas for the Jab: I've been in hermit mode these past 3 months, it's been hell on my mental health but I have reason to do so. I've been trying to fight for the use of nitros oxide for administering the Covid-19 Vaccine, not just for me but for other autistic people who are in the same situation with me, I want to minimize meltdowns and sensory overload when it comes to needles to help get more people vaccinated and hopefully take another step in the right direction. Fortunately I've recently gotten word that they're finalizing everything and a specialty clinic will be ready in a few short weeks so that the vaccine can be more accessible to disabled people. If i'm being completely honest, they should've done this day 1 of the vaccine roll outs everywhere, it's bad enough I missed out on fringe world but hopefully i'll be fully vaccinated in time for convention season (one which might be getting my first Emcee gig for!), and hopefully this means I can have more bowls of ramen soon!


An update on the Tarot Collab:

All the artists have finished their part and so I need to plan a time with @Stepford so we can put all these cards into a kickass little interactive thingy for you guys to all enjoy and possibly learn a bit about the Major Arcana.


After the tarot collab is finished, I think I wanna do another totally radical collaboration and release it in time for Robot Day.


In case you haven't heard:

I'm the voice of Pico in Newgrounds: Zero Hour! It's been a real honor working with @ThatJohnnyGuy to help bring one of NG's most iconic characters to life, thank you for seeing potential in me and giving me a chance to shine in my first ever VA role.

I better see you guys play episode 1 when it comes out and let me know how you all enjoy it, mad props to everyone involved from the artists, to the VAs and programmers.


and finally...


Nearing 500 fans!!!:

Holy hell! almost at 500 fans?!?! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I wanna thank newgrounds for embracing me with open arms and letting me do cool things for the community and making rad friends without the guise of a heartless and cruel algorithm ruling over everything. Joining NG was one of the best decisions of my life. And if it was not for all my kindhearted friends, I would not have stayed around that long. I went through so much personal growth and transformation and I will continue to do so, and I will continue to be passionate about newgrounds and its Communtiy much to the dismay of those who dare try and snuff out the flames of passion. Viva la Newgrounds, bitches!


I think that's all I have to say at the moment.

So until then...

Justice and Tungsten!!

Redd. xoxo

Hey everybody, I thought I'd start off the new year with trying my hand at managing a collaboration for the first time. I was having a chat with a few of my fellow art friends in a twitter space and I was sitting on this idea for a collaboration for a few months and I finally thought it's time to bring it into reality so without further ado....


!!! I AM OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCING THE NEWGROUNDS TAROT ART COLLABORATION!!!


How it works: Each artist will have 1 card out of the 22 Major arcana to make into a Newgrounds themed tarot card with a character that they think symbolizes said card the best. Please DM me here on NG if you want in on this, I shall look through your portfolio here on Newgrounds and I'll let you know if you have been accepted. I will then add you to the discord server which has the google document linked, and I will add your NG handle, the card, the character and the current status of said card to the document. We are hoping to have exactly 22 artists for the full Major Arcana deck.

In the discord server there's the dimensions, font and border template for the card.

I would like to make sure that no single NG franchise takes over the entire deck so the maximum is 2 cards per franchise, please.


When's the Deadline?: February 20th 1159:pm GMT+8. So a month and a couple weeks, which I hope will give our artists plenty of time. We will then have all the cards made and put into our file to give to our programmer....


Who's our programmer?: The one and the only *drum roll* @Stepford! They were kind enough to lend their time and services to helping me with this collaboration and I am forever grateful to have them on board, they're gonna showcase their programming prowess and wizardry for this collaboration.


What's a Major Arcana?: In a deck of 78 tarot cards, there's the Minor Arcana which is comprised of 56 cards split into 4 suits (Cups, Wands, Pentacles, and Swords). And then there's the Major Arcana, which are the trump cards (For example: The Fool, The Magician, The Devil, Death, Justice, etc.) I've decided that I wanted to stick with the Major Arcana to make things easier for my fellow potential collaborators on this project.


Why Tarot Cards?: I've always had a fascination with stuff like this, my Mother is considered quite spiritual I got my love of this kind of stuff from her at a very young age. Plus, I wanted to do something cool for the community by bringing a bunch of artists together for a fun little project.


I hope I've answered all your questions, but please feel free to ask me any further questions in regards to this collaboration and I'm more than happy to elaborate to the best of my ability.


Best of wishes to those who are interested and thank you for taking the time to read through this -

First and foremost, I just wanna say thank you all for over 400 fans here on Newgrounds, that's over 400 people who took the time out of their lives to see what I do and i'm incredibly grateful for that. Love y'all!

You guys have made me feel real welcome here and it's something that I've been wanting for a very long time. At the start of the year when I joined NG, I was in a very low place, I was adjusting to a massive move from north of the river to south to a suburb with no clear separation of church and state, I needed a place to get away from a malevolent algorithm who was constantly beating me down, and I was actually fighting a long battle with my crippling self doubt, comparing myself to others from my past who have wronged me, and the fact that my grandfather passed away not that far off from that whole situation.

So yeah, not a good time.

The last thing he told me was that he was proud of me, and that gave me the strength to keep moving forward. To know that I made someone proud was just enough.

In May I also had quite the mental health slump, I was considerably worried about how others may perceive me so I took it upon myself to reprogram myself and boss up and have that Take-No-Shit attitude.

So when I say that I am proud of someone, I hope that I could give them the strength to keep pushing onward.

And if it weren't for the kindness of those who I am more than proud to call my friends, I wouldn't have stuck around for long here on NG. So I wanna give a massive thank you to the ones who were there for me.

from my first ever follower @LarryIRL to those who I've been thankful to know over this past year

@Stepford , Your kindness has really made an impact on me when I was at my lowest this year.

@Chipollo , You've made it big here on NG, I know that for sure, so keep at it and i'll always be here for you if you need a confidence boost.

@SlickRamen , You're stronger than you think and I know for a damn fact that you're gonna kick much more ass in 2022

@plufmot , We gotta arrange a time where we can catch up and grab some goon!

@CommanderKuni and @UgasiSvelta , You two are gonna definitely hit your stride in the UCU. Keep at it!

@Lanadoodles , One of the realest MFs I know, it's always such a blast being abole to talk about our hyperfixations together and we'll always have each other's backs!

and everybody at @TheNewgroundsPodcast

@Xinxinix

@VoicesByCorey

@Psychogoldfish

and we couldn't forget about dearest @podchan The Official Mascot!

Being able to work with the NGP is an amazing opportunity, I've learned so much from these guys and I will continue to do so, thank you for seeing potential in me! <3

And even getting to do a Newgrounds Night stream with my good mate TotesVidya on twitch with super special guest Michael Cusack. That was a massive highlight of my year!


I also got to chat with those who I look up to greatly in this community, especially MindChamber. (tbh I still felt kinda shy @ ing him but if you do see this MC, Hi!) also hi Tom!


And I know that 2022 will be an amazing year with everything I know is just on the horizon. I ain't going nowhere so you'll see plenty more from me in the upcoming year, just you wait!

365 more opportunities to wrangle your demons and make them your bitch!

365 more chances to boss up and get everything in life you've been working your asses off for!

365 more times to show the world what you're truly made of. You may feel like tin foil but deep down you are the tougher than tungsten! and don't you ever forget that!

365 more reasons to get a damn good bowl of ramen!


I fucking love you guys, thank you for letting me into this community with open arms. We're gonna continue showing the world the true potential of what a community like Newgrounds can achieve!

So until then, Kick ass, eat ramen and stay radical <3.

Redd.

P.S. us Aussie Newgrounders R E A L L Y gotta catch up once we all get our jabs. You're all gonna get so many hugs from me, that's a guarantee!

SPARTANS! TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!

AND TOMORROW I'M THINKING RAMEN!


In all seriousness though, thank you all for the 300 fans, I'm gonna get myself a nice warm bowl of ramen tomorrow to celebrate. I love you all and I'm so thankful for all the support these past few months. I've gone through some ups and downs, rebuilt myself during a slump, got to interact with the ones I look up to the most in this community and made some amazing friends. So from the bottom of my power core, thank you all so much. I love you all! <3
