Tom's New Toy!

12/4/13 by The-Great-One
Updated 12/4/13

Tom Fulp decided to give us all a brand new toy! An actual blog system! You can get the full details in this thread or on his news post. So there is quite a bit excitment about it, especially for myself. So this is just me playing around with this new system.


Holy crap did you see that? I made a horizontal line! Do you know how amazing this is going to be for The Interviewer? No more having to make spacer with  stupid little "=" marks! Oh and if I am quoting someone like this...

Dude, you have a fucking giraffe neck

- TheSouthernTower

I can do that nifty little quote thing as well! That's awesome! It's a bit weird to work with though. It is do-able though. Also it does get confusing for when I want to go to another paragraph how it does an automatic spacing for me. That I'm not to keen of, but I can manage, since other blog sites and word processors work the same way. I guess I just like a bit more control. Can we still do bold font ourselves? <b>Like this?</b> We shall see. However one thing that will become very beneficial is the use of mutliple pictures.

Aren't they Amazing?


Why yes. Yes they are. One question I have though is for the readers of The Interviewer. With these new tools in hand, should I go back and re-do all the interviews and clean them up a bit. Or should we move on from the past and simply progress?

Also there seems to be no more text limit, which I find awesome. I'm gonna ask Tom a bit more about this. So far so good though.

TL;DR - To the bottom with you.

I graduated early from high school in 2007. My parents as an early graduation present gave me a laptop. Before my laptop I used an old Compaq desktop that would freeze if you decided to scroll the page too fast. Well my laptop was wonderful, it had Windows Vista and was fast as a whip. Every single interview up until the latest one with Hikarian was written on that laptop. That laptop had a name and her name was TEX, after the character from Red vs. Blue.

However time is not kind to technology, especially laptops. So TEX now sits in a bag, in my closet. I have saved enough money to purchase a new computer. I got a desktop this time around, named her TEX 2 and so here we are.

So now I am truly back on Newgrounds, full time. The Interviewer will be kicking like you have never seen before. The next interview posted will be with deathink and you can expect new interviews every Wednesday. This will start two weeks after Thanksgiving.

TL;DR - I got a new computer, writing more interview stuff, some day about a turkey, *gobble gobble*


Update #7 - Russian Roulette

Hello once again. How have you all been? I've been better I can say that much. You wouldn't believe how much not having an up-to-date computer can make you miss Newgrounds. When I destroy my old computer I will gladly show you a video of the destruction. Anyway...

Brand new interview with Hikarian has been posted. She won the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation this year you know. You can read it through this link or can you go read it in the codex made by deathink. Also yes, deathink will be getting interviewed sometime soon.

Also in a thread I made in the Video Games Forum, I decided to look back at past games and see how they were then and how they would hold up if they were released nowadays on today's consoles. It is called shockingly enough Then & Now. Check it out and give your own opinions on some of your favorite games from the past.

I have been meaning to post this for quite sometime now, but due to computer difficulties I couldn't get around to it. Musician Benjamin Tibbetts here on Newgrounds has interviewed me for his website, you can read the interview here. Also Benjamin Tibbetts and I had a discussion about music and video games on my separate account entitled A Conversation with Benjamin Tibbetts so you can go check that out to. I also talked to Dean and that was pretty cool to.

That's all I got right now.


Update #6 - I'm Back

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Well I'm back here on Newgrounds. Been gone for a few months though, but I'm back and I'm here to stay. I guess I do owe those who wondered where I had gone an explanation though, so here goes nothing.

I recently got a job and that has been eating up most of my schedule. Not to mention on days that I have had off I have been reading and building a library over time. Plus I planned a birthday party and will be attending an upcoming birthday party. Also one of my friends was here for the Summer and he wanted to get as much friend time in as possible. In other words... I have a life outside of Newgrounds and it attacked during the Summer. Now Autumn is approaching though, so I have returned.

A lot has probably happened on Newgrounds that I'm not aware of, so if anybody wants to get me up to speed then please do so.


Update #5 - Writing and Working

[ Previous Update | Next Update]

Well I am currently employed. Which means I'm gonna have to work my work schedule around my writing and Newgrounds schedules. For those whose entries have passed the NATA Open Round, if I haven't left you a review yet, I apologize and will get to you as soon as I can.

In news with the Interviewer, some new interviews have been posted. One being Interview with Jaltoid and ObliviousEmi. If you haven't watched that then check it out.

I intend on posting more articles in the Video Game Forum, as well as doing some interesting things with Club Stoic, a club dedicated to video game music. I don't really have much more to say than that.


Update #4 - Back In Time

The Interviewer still moves along its way. If you haven't checked out The Interview Codex yet I suggest you do. Not only is it an archive of all the interviews done by The Interviewer, it is a growing one. All new interviews posted on The Interviewer will also be posted in The Interview Codex.

As it is the Interview with WoodTick and Interview with Sarkazm are both up now. So if you haven't checked them out yet then please do! WoodTick is the mind behind In Solitude and Nyan Cat - Genre Hopping while Sarkazm is behind Smile! and LUCKY DAY FOREVER.

Speaking of Genre Hopping, the Monthly Writing Contest 13: Genre Hopping is over. The winners have been announced and you can check them out here. It was fun to be a judge in this contest and read all these entries.

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation is gonna be starting up again, one of the prizes is going to be an interview with The Interviewer. Among a 1-Year Membership of Adobe Creative Cloud and cash prizes for passing each round, all donated by Newgrounds members. Two past winners include Dave Bruno and Emrox. Competitors in these contests have also been interviewed despite not winning, they are TmsT and Zeurel. The found of NATA has also been interviewed, his name is Adam Witt. The Interviewer has its connections with this tournament and I am proud that it is. If you're an animator then you can enter this tournament. Just check in for the thread on April 1st, the link to it should be on the front page of Newgrounds, so keep your eye out for it.

Tom and I have been talking about the Literature Portal for a while now. He gave me some info that he's thinking about giving Newgrounds an old-school design. When I can get more information about this then I'll update this post. It would be interesting to see an old design of Newgrounds.

Other than that, in this era of video game related review shows, I would like to share one that Newgrounds had. It's called Strategy Guide. There weren't many episodes in this series. Although with gamers and video games growing in number, I think it's time for this show to make a comeback.

Update #4 - Back In Time

Newgrounds member deathink is quite possibly one of The Interviewer's biggest fans. For he has mustered his energy together to bring forth something The Interviewer's readers have been wanting for quite sometime now. That is The Interview Codex. So you can read all the interviews in one flash format.

If you haven't already you should follow deathink for more creative things he has to bring to Newgrounds.

Update #3 - The Interview Codex

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Two new interviews are up on The Interviewer. An Interview with PsychoGoldfish and an Interview with Sabtastic. Also if you're not a fan of my Dohn profile then please start following, recently I had A Conversation with Benjamin Tibbetts, so check that out. If you're a fan of The Interviewer then you should be pleased to know that The Interviewer will be posting new interviews every Wednesday. So you should expect a new interview every week.

If you read the Interview with The Forum Regulars and you're a regular of the Newgrounds Forums then please contact me. I am looking to do a second interview with The Forum Regulars. I am mainly looking for those you normally seen browsing the different forums on Newgrounds.

I am judging a contest that ForNoReason is running where you Create A Newgrounds Commercial. The deadline is April 1st and there aren't that many entries. If you got a camera and some creativity then make a commercial. You could win $25 in Newgrounds Store Credit.

I am also a judge in the Monthly Writing Contest 13: Genre Hopping!. The deadline is March 2nd, which is this Saturday, so if you're a writer and haven't contributed to this contest then you may want to make an entry to submit.



[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Well here is the first update. Gonna try to do these as more information comes into what I'm working on. Really gonna try to get a lot of my writings here for all of you to see. However I am doing more than writing. First thing is first, The Interviewer will be coming to an end. Not soon, but down the line. At the time, I will feel that I have done all I can with The Interviewer and will be bringing it to an end.

However with that being said, there have been a few new interviews posted. The members of Newgrounds were given a chance to ask Tom Fulp questions in the Interview with Tom Fulp #4. I have also interviewed Wade Fulp, Emrox, who was the winner of the 2012 Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation, and CosmicDeath, so go and check all of those out.

ForNoReason has started a contest where you Create A Newgrounds Commercial. In this contest all you have to do is create a commercial advertising Newgrounds. The top three best will win $25 in Store Credit, while the number one best entry will also receive a "super secret awesome prize" alongside an interview with The Interviewer. Not only that, but I'm one of the judges for this contest, so please enter! I am quite eager to see what Newgrounds can come up with.

For those of you who haven't checked this out I urge you to do so, especially if you're a fan of The Interviewer. That is Dohn. An account named after me, where I will be sharing my thoughts on the world as well as conducting interviews that are outside the creative interviews done through The Interviewer. I have recently posted something new there entitled A Conversation with Dean. Newgrounds member Dean and myself discussed video games, in terms of collecting as well as the industry. It was quite fun to do and enlightening as well. If you're a fan of video games then check it out.

Also I created a thread in Clubs & Crews where fans of video game music can talk about their favorite composers, tracks, soundtracks, and the evolution of video game music with one another. I named it Club Stoic, after the name of the club in the video game EarthBound. If you are a fan of video game music or music in general, then please join us.

That's all I got for now. We shall rendezvous when more information is gathered.



Hello Newgrounds members. It is the month of October again. Don't get me wrong, I love Halloween and I'm sure many others here do. Before we start thinking of the wonderful color of orange, give some thought to the color pink. I am a supporter of supporting the fight against not only breast cancer, but many other forms of cancer and this is a time when we can all pitch in.

What is Breast Cancer?

First off I think it is important to answer the question of what is cancer. Why? Because chances are most people who don't know what breast cancer is probably don't even know what cancer is. So here we go...

Cancer is a disease that occurs when cells become abnormal and divide without control or order. Each organ in the body is made up of various kinds of cells. Cells normally divide in an orderly way to produce more cells only when they are needed. This process helps keep the body healthy. If cells divide when new cells are not needed, they form too much tissue. This extra tissue, called a tumor, can be benign or malignant.

Benign tumors are not cancer. Eighty percent of all breast tumors are benign. They can usually be removed, and, in most cases, they don't come back. Most important, the cells in benign tumors do not invade other tissues and do not spread to other parts of the body. Benign breast tumors are not life-threatening.

Malignant tumors are cancer. The cancer cells grow and divide out of control, invading and damaging nearby tissues and organs. Cancer cells can also break away from the original tumor and enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system. This is how breast cancer spreads and forms secondary tumors in other parts of the body. This spread of cancer is called metastasis.

Breast cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare.

So fellas out there, although it is rare, you could get breast cancer as well. It is important to bring this up and to also support in getting the word out as well as finding a cure and doing whatever you can to help.

So that is why I support the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

What is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

If you're a woman or a man with a girlfriend, fiancee, wife, mother, sister, or close cousin then it is important that you know what the stages are in both men and women as well as who you can contact to find out more.

Where can I get contact information?

Well the site I already mentioned The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month site has a good bit of information. However I can give some of the information to you below here.

- American Cancer Society

- Cancer Research

I know that this whole news post sounds preachy, but this is truly something I support and try to get word out on. No type of cancer is good and although Newgrounds makes plenty of jokes about it I know I do, when it comes down to reality, it's not a joke.

So I ask that you kindly take time out, to sit down with your family or friends and possibly talk about this if you haven't been to the doctor in a while or if there is something amiss. If you're family and friends are already doing fine then I ask instead that you lend out your hand to help others.

Hold an event in your town, neighborhood, or city. Try to do something at your school, local business, or college. To get the word out and help others if you can. There are other ways you can help by going to a Making Strides event near you. Help by collecting money to donate to fight against cancer. Try to get media attention from your area.

I wish to fight against any and all cancers, it already took one of our beloved Newgrounds members Edd Gould, I don't want to lose another Newgrounds member to cancer or anybody else. If there is anything that could be done to prevent, treat, or at the very least, make the final days be better then I don't see why someone of good health can't do their part to help one another.
