-welcome to metropolis-

in other news.. eh, well for once. nothing out of the ordinary is happyening. i robbed myself buying xmas gifts so im eating pizza all day intull next paycheck.. ToT.. DAMNIT!

hi there ^-^

I figured it was time to make a new post, since the old is getting kinda long and crowded!
thanks everyone for the comments <3 41 is pretty high for a news post :D neways..
Im not sick anymore! and my stitched up arm is almost healed. :P
However, i still have to work ALOT this week and even more next week. so time to do creative stuff is limtied. ive scanned almost all my drawings now tho, so im saying this again, go check them out if you have time:

My deviant art

Anyways, time for the "big" updates!
i finally, after a 2 day forum struggle, got myself a verry capable companion of a programmrer to help me realise my game ideas! Arby here on ng :) im not giving out too much information, but im currently working on it. i will be making the music, animation, art, story and sounds. he will do all the coding, enemy A.I etc, and he helps me brainstorm :]

i expect this project to take nothing less than 5 months or something around that. since i work alot, xmas is comming up and these things take time. so dont expect anything any time soon. but its in the making, atleast! :D and im really happy about it!

oh and one more thing. I made a new Loop, Today! its supposed to go with the game when its finished. but i couldnt wait a minute to submit it :P im pretty happy with it. altho i know its repetative. its intentional. so, hope you like it! i worked hard on it! i present:

-ThumpGrinder-

untill next update, stay tuned!

i made this drawing last night, wich is also concept art for my game. the little girl reyin sol, one of the 3 pilots:

Ok, that was a lie. but now that i have your atention!

im finally done moving in! its like a nerd palace here, gotta love it <3
Well, so I finished this one song thats been lying around for some time.
its nothing out of the ordinary, and not to complex in mastering or melody, but
i like it, and think its worthy of a submition! so i bring you:

-You and me-

im also currently working on these projects:

-- Race around the world 2 70% complete
-- Swampland DnB remake 35% complete
-- Superfunky symphony 85% complete

So keep an eye out for those! i also love it when you guys give me remake and mix
ideas, or similar. for instance, the idea of making Swampland a dnb song came from a fan. :)

ill keep updating this page so stay tuned ;)
heres a pic of my new home <3

Im finally rigged at my new place! FINALLLYYYYY!
And im working on a easygoing funky breakbeat thingy. similar to my submition -rocketrace- , wich is still my best one to date in my opinion. stay tuned fellas!

---------------------
Awwrite!

So Castlecrashers got released, and my tracks made the front page and 5th of the week.
Now, my week in the glorious sun is over, for now ;) and id like to thank everyone that downloaded, reviewed or listened to my songs. especially those who put me in the favourite artist list! dont stop!
Also, a special thanks to Poisonsky who have been reviewing alot lately :)
as for you rest, i try to respond ot all of you! i just dont have the time o.O but ill try harder! thank you all! <3<3

In other news, I actually have some days off now! finally! so im gonna spend those with My gf and friends. Also, i just got me a big fat paycheck from working my ass off, and with some of those money i got myself a laptop, a printer-scanner, a NES (my 3rd now, lol damit) and some regular xbox games. since they cost around 8 dollars new i would be stupid not to!
Im going to scan my drawings now! so expect around 20-30 pencil drawn drawings commin up to the forums the comming days :D wooteh.

On the music front, nothing new is cooking atm. but good news for everyone that wanted Swampland to be a DNB song! im working on it, so far so good ;D

In 6 days, ill be living somewhere else, so my room looks pretty much packed/fucked up now. i also found out from packing, that i have over 200+ games. 200+!!!! i feel like AVGN. >_>

Look ay my new laptop! aint it sexy lying there half nekkid in bed:

Hi again! when i said i wouldnt make any new stuff for a while, i told the truth. what i left out was that Castlecrashers is now out for xbox360 live aracde! so now its finally time to submit the exclusive tracks! first up is the swamplands track, now i gotta run to work! enjoy! :D

-Swamplands-

20th aug.

yeah, update!! UNH!

after using all my little sparetime hours i could collect during the workrush and grilfriend-time-spendin',
i came up with some blood and sweat breakbeats with orchestral influence! indeed, indeed.
i concider it, as said, to be my best work to date, mostly because ive always admiered this kind
of music, and ive forever wanted to nail that style.
this time i felt like i finally did! with ofcource a middlesegment of orchestral,
wich i can never leave, it seems..

in other news, i wont be able to make music for a while. im moving! and i still
have alot of work, music cant pay the bills just yet. it might be a month before i can submit something
fresh again, other than if i finish one of my "almost done and kinda good" songs, wich there is
alot of! so in other words, -control: mind- and my contribution for the music colabration will be held back for a while.

anyways, im really proud of this for once! i feel like im finally managing to do something good again!
so i really hope you like this, i put alot of effort into making it! i present:

Rocket race!

Hi again ^^ im still drowning in work, and missing alot of social events with friends etc i wish i could participate in... i feel almost antisocial from working while the others go to school together.. ah well.
so, i got a pm the other day, with now, the 5th person claming to be me! its insane how they insist on bugging me like this.. ive owned this profile since 2003 and ive always been me, christian. im really sick of this.. even tho they own themselves with wrong dates, etc.. guess i shouldnt worry to much about it. i have tons of evidence from the date i signed up and untill now.. im me and i know it. lol.

also, i wasted insanely ammounts of money today on just taking a walk in town with my girlfriend.. i spend about 250 dollars on well.. music, games and food.. o.O i dont even have time to use all this entertainment.. i gotta seriously stop doing that.

anyways!
im working on some new suff, but the progress is slower than ever.. i hope i can get something out by the end of next week, but we'll see :) keep checking in! :)

again, i love all my fans! my music and my feedback means so much to me. i dont know what i would do without it. <3 thank you all for support! :D i will get better with respoinding to reviews when i have less work. they still make my day ;)

29may

Hi everyone! ive been holding back on some awesome news :D

i wanted to wait untill i was sure. im not sure if i can announce the songs thats not on newgrounds, but, long story short:

6 of my songs is going to be used in castle crashers!
2 of them is already here on newgrounds, but 4 of them is custom made :D

the songs allready on newgrounds is:

-Techrock (fixed)-

-Space pirates-

its wierd how they picked 2 year old songs, i have improoved alot since then but..
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?! the custom songs is offlimits for now ;)

Im really happy and grateful about this opportunity and its the biggest music job ive had yet.
i was gonna buy the game simply cus it looks awesome in all aspects.
now i get to be a part of it!

in other news, im drowning in work this weeks and the 2-3 weeks to come. so i have little time for music making and other funstuff.. :[

anyways, just wanted to share my god news! more music to come next month i hope :D

Update 13 apr.
------------------
ive submitted a new song. this one is also emotional and is in the classical genre.
Childhood

Update! 3 apr.
-------------------
-Space pirates- Reached 100.000 downloads! WOOOT!
i have no idea how..
but my suspission is on the fact that its been used in many pivots and also at the castle crashers forest level at a demo. also some of the top pepole on ng have it as fav so im also kinda hoping thats why ^^ .. the fame seems rather unexisting otherwise compared to the downloads, yet they flow in from other sources daily :D so anyways. big achivement for me. 100.000. wow.
------------------

Ugh.. Hi ng. ive submitted a new song :) nothing much but.. hope you like it!
My autumn love

yeah so..
i actually have alot to say but nothing really comes to mind now. other than the obvious events..

ive been at the gathering with my friends 2 weeks ago. its a huge lan party with around 5.000-6.000 pepole with alot of competitions etc. we played mostly steam based games.. i had a really great time there but at the end i managed to get some kind of virus and feever struck. so now the past week the bed has been my home and ive had nightmares about sharks and knifespewing babies and whatnot. im starting to recover now but.. im still a friggin zombie. got 3rd job in maple tho. woopey. >_> (dont hit me)

other than that i feel like shit in all aspects. and i guess you could say i feel a bit depressed aswell. everything sucks these days... but ill get on upah! (like james brown) so..hoping for better times!
anyways, untill i haul my ass out of this dungeon of aids.. enjoy the song and all..
