dear newgrounds

hi!

long time no speak right? anyhow, i've been here in perth australia doing my missionary work for comming on 10 months now (time flies aye!) and for a while i am to be incapacitated :(

i'm getting knee surgery on the 6th of july for a conditions know and Osteochondritis Dissecans and i'll be out of action for a few months. no i'm not going home and no i'm not going to be animating, i'll be in an office for a while so whis means a couple of things:

1- i will be on a computer most of the time so i'll try and catch up on a few PM's... even though theres a lot.... *cough*
2- i have some art i've done while out here, sculptures i've taken photos of and drawings and stuff, so i can put them up on the sexy new art portal
3- i'll be in a significant amount of pain
4- pain

so anyhow, theres an update. Missionary work is AWESOME, i love every bit of it. Lot's of highs and lows and i'm learning a lot, and have pleantyof stories. and i even BAPTISED a newgrounder! (this dude, he's the MAN).

well, stay cool NG, wish my knee luck!

i'm getting SURGERY...


GOODBYE

2008-09-16 21:26:34 by Jazza

Well this is it
all my stuff is packed, including computer, piano and drums. My bags are packed and they are heavy as hell, lol. I've said my goodbyes and here is my last one online:

GOODBYE NEWGROUNDS!

it's been an amazing experience. newgrounds alone has been the sole contributor in me being able to leave and do this missionary work, i would have had no job otherwise. HUGE thanks to Tom, all his amazing support and enthusiasm. Big thanks to all the animators and people who have inspired me. I really am gonna miss newgrounds, but for now i gotta move on.

I'll be back in two years, but until then no more animations or games coz i'll be hard at work trying to help people and what not lol. Thank you all so much for your support and love, keep it going coz i can't wait to come back to a newgroudns even fuller then it is now, of talent noise, and... genital humor? lol.

THANK YOU NEWGROUNDS and-
-Goodbye :)

YAAAY!!!

after 9, that's right, N-I-N-E months of continual work and development MOONKEY and I have finally finished the web-wide ready release of BROTHERHOOD OF BATTLE!!

Along with the release of our game I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a promo I made a while back, in which ia Hired a very famous voice-over actor, Don Lafontaine, to voice the promo. It cost a bundle, but i dont regret it as his voice is AMAZING... or was. see unfortunately, Don died early this september, so i would like to dedicate this video promo to the late great DON LAFONTAINE. rest in peace.

Well, i hope you can all go play brotherhood of battle, let moonkey and i know what you think!! oh, and GO THANK MOONKEY. seriously, he did SO much working and re-working in this process, he prolly feels like a 80 year old by now.

HAVE A NICE DAY!

FAQ:
YES i will be coming back to newgrounds after two years

Any questions?
Anyone gonna miss me?
Anyone even read this? lol jk

little update

2008-07-28 18:53:42 by Jazza

for no reason other then to get rid of that post spamming my trance song, i'm giving an update:

Brotherhood of Battle:
is pretty much finished, it's on xgenstudios, PLAY IT HERE. Moonkey and i are finishing a demo version to upload everywhere including here. it'll be the same game just less gametypes and maps, and no editor or game points.

Short Films:
Yes i'm finishing them, i seem to never get the time but they're nearly done. one is called 'the Find' the other 'Continuance'. Frankly i dont like either of them because i didnt get the creative control i would have liked, plus i had no access to good actors and stuff... otherwise they'll be watchable hopefuly

My Mission:
Ye's i'm still going, my papers have been in for over 3 weeks now so i'm just waiting for my call. It'll come in the mail very soon, and as soon as i find out where i'm going i'll post on here.

Have a lovely life!


I lost my 'Trance Virginity'

2008-07-12 05:19:22 by Jazza

I'm usually a classical composer type, even my vocal originals have a much more classical new-agey feel to them...

well i jumped out of my comfort zone and decided to much around with trance.

TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK

again it's my first so be nice. i'd love to hear what you think and any ideas/suggestions would be great...

and yeah, i had lots of fun making it! i might even make more!
