Friends and followers, fellow composers and producers.
Although this is my fifth anniversary as a composer, I deeply regret to tell you all that I will, as of now, be leaving Newgrounds, and most public places, for a few months. I am simply too flustered, insulted, and ill-tempered to be a constructive element of this community until I manage to get rid of these emotions.
Certain individuals seem to hold grudges at me for a number of my actions over the past few months. As I noted in my first correspondence to one of them, "the only thing I dislike more than enemies is having enemies." I wish only that they will get over this soon and find a constructive path to follow.
Aside from that, my decision to judge the NGADM made me far more enemies than friends it seems. It was my task to judge, and I damn well made sure I did that. I didn't give out a single rating or critique I haven't received considerably harsher of on my own work and learned greatly from, but I digress: it is done, and long gone, but I am still dealing with the emotional fallout from it and the last rumbles.
I will be taking this time to continue and speed up my ongoing exploration of the reaches of music- free improvization, early music, and now the exciting world of 19th century brass instruments and their applications in modern settings. I will also continue working on the creation and publication of virtual instruments, especially free ones, however, I will likely ask @Camoshark to make postings of them.
For those who have a nit to pick with me, or anyone over anything, I want you to open up text pad, write it out until you grow tired, then save and close it. Tomorrow, open it up, and slowly, deliberately drag it to the trash can. Rinse and repeat until you're done. That's what I'm going to be doing until then; letting time and logic overcome the heat. No one should have to fight tooth-and-claw to defend themselves, likely only inciting more insult in response.
For those who have concern for me, I will still have my e-mail and skype open at times.
