The newest issue of The Tank Tribune is up! NO. 002 - Dad's Sunday Paper. Happy Father's Day to all the father's of Newgrounds out there!


The latest interview with rtil is up now to read! I've also launched a Patreon! I have some tiers up now, but I'm still a bit new to this, so I am open to suggestions and tips!


That's about it on this end. If you liked my posts in the Video Games Forum, you're gonna like what I have in store for Friday! A return to an old project of mine if you will.

Nice to see all of you again. Expect these updates once a week every Saturday. I've got a lot in store for those who are fans of my work and fans of Newgrounds in general. No new interview again this week. I've been working on a lot of stuff for all of you so I hope you can forgive me. I'm also in the process of setting up a Patreon and finally pushing through and completely reformatting The Interviewer.


I'm also looking to invest in a microphone and a camcorder. I've got my microphone picked out, I just need some advice on a camcorder so suggestions are welcome.


Also my best friend flew in from Texas for his sister's wedding and he's gonna be spending some time with me.

It has been nearly a year. All I can say is, I'm sorry.


I'm sorry I've been gone for too long. I needed a break, from everything really. Unfortunately I didn't get a nice break from work. Hopefully that'll change though. All that I can say though is The Interviewer will be returning. Also if you haven't checked it out Somber Pensive will be making its return as well! That's on my third page @Dohn.


I thank you all for being so patient with me during this time in my life.

I am still here. Alive and kicking. I want to start off by saying sorry for the long hiatus. It's been a rough couple of months. Work, mental problems, and a hint of insomnia have been draining to say the least. I am hopeful to get everything back on track sooner rather than later. I am planning on investing in a video camera and microphone and bringing to the world the web show I've been working on for over a decade.

The Interviewer will be continuing. A lot of catching up to do there and a lot of overhauling as well. In the past when I hit these slumps papers were strewn everywhere. Thanks to the GTD method everything is still contained right where I left it. That reduces stress, which the less stress at times is better.

I want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding. It means a lot to me.

I've been giving my life a lot of thought now. I thought I would tell you what my life is about. I've been working at a deli restaurant for five years of my life. I have climbed up the ladder there and am now a store manager. The owner of the restaurant still calls the shots over me, but I keep the place running smoothly. June was a hellacious month for me due to life problems with one of my now former employees. As I get home I tend to be exhausted with the work load that I have and that I put into that store.

I have officially decided to start a Patreon once I do the overhaul of The Interviewer and make it look much nicer. I will be bringing The Interviewer back into full force. Starting on July 11, 2018 there will be a new interview posted on The Interviewer and a new interview every Wednesday. I will also be posting newer content as well, I'll get to that more in detail next week.

To those I have promised an interview to, I'll be in touch soon. I'm sorry for all of these delays and I'm gonna do better. Because honestly, y'all deserve it. Also The Interviewer is approaching it's 10th Anniversary come February. Incredible to see it come this far.

I am without Internet right now. I'll be back online fully this Sunday. I'm currently typing this at my parent's house. My little brother moved in with me as a roommate and decided to have Internet installed at my house. Well he moved out and took the Internet with him since it was under his name. Which is fair, so I had to schedule Internet installation for the house. Looking back I probably should have had the hindsight to just have the Internet installed under my name. That is what is excusing my absence. I must admit it is quite the experience watching YouTube on my phone. I plan to see what all Newgrounds Mobile can do here soon.

In other news, once I get Internet back I'm planning to start a Patreon. If y'all want to contribute to it I would be most thankful. Just a way to maybe make some extra money and produce more writing for all of you. I'm looking to bring back something I did a long time ago called June Games, but do it in July. I am also looking to have content for y'all every day of the week minus Saturday. If I can garner enough Patrons I could quit my job and make writing my full time job, but that's a pipe dream and ultimately the goal is to get my name out there more and just have a little more money if possible.

If anything I will implore you to spend your money on being a Newgrounds Supporter first and foremost. That is more important.

With all of that said, how y'all been doing?

It's been a hell of time as of late. I've been away far too long. Some of you have noticed my steady return. Between now and my last news post I had been slowly working on buying myself a house. I am now a proud homeowner. I will have pictures at some point to show the entire house, or maybe a video if I can figure out how the video camera on my phone works.

I moved in back in June and have been living here since then. It's a nice place, although I have been experiencing troubles with the toilets clogging and overflowing and plunging them does little. Anybody know a fix for that right off the bat, it would be greatly appreciated (shit less is not a viable option).

So I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and have been planning quite a bit of content. For one thing The Interviewer will be resuming, a new interview every Wednesday. Picking back up next week with an Interview with @Eggy. I'll also be posting stuff to my @Dohn page, so if you're not following that, then please do.

I wanted to ask a serious question to those who decided to follow me (why I dunno). I have thought about really outputting my writing more and I have thought about starting a Patreon. There are two things holding me back on this though. One is I don't know much about Patreon. I know it's open for creators, but is there a fee that you have to pay? Is there a cut Patreon gets? How would it work with my bank account overall? Those questions. Number Two is I don't want to come off as though I'm E-Begging. I'm not. If people enjoy my work, want to pay towards it, and hopefully I can use that money to expand. I have a job at a deli as a Manager. That position is what helped me get the house I'm currently living in, so I'm doing alright for myself financially, so I don't need a Patreon.

What are your thoughts?

Sorry there have been more delays. There has been a shift at work and a lot of my time has been dedicated to that. One of our managers found a better job and she left so I had to fill the void left behind until a manager from a different store came back and got back into a rhythm. Now he is managing two stores and I am still managing the store I'm working at. Usually I have that under control, however something else came up.

We had a manager at one of our stores. I learned about two months ago that he and I were related, we were cousins! That became an exciting time for me to have another family member. One who doesn't treat me like shit and isn't an asshole. We knew who we were before, but we learned we are cousins! However about two weeks ago, he committed suicide. Not only did I need to step up at work and be strong when I clearly wasn't able to, I had to hide my feelings, and just not feel anything.

I wasn't able to do it. I broke down one Saturday night at work. I went out back and just cried. I finally couldn't take it, so I called my best friend who was out in Texas and told him to just talk, just talk, say anything. I just wanted to hear his voice and bring me some form of relief. He did, and it was something I needed.

Work has been needing adjustments to it. Thankfully though we are back on a "normal" level of productivity, so I should be getting back to work on here soon. Thanks to all who I have had delayed obligations towards.
