That Flash Thing

In regards to that Flash thing. About it being the end and all. Read this.

Basically it's not over!

If you happen to spend your days on NG you'll barely notice a difference.

If you happen to spend your days elsewhere you might want to try Ruffle or SuperNova - or just click that link above to find ways to make Flash work just like it used to. No need for extraneous plugins... just a little configuration file replacement and/or other tricks.

Here's a nice read too. Somewhat relevant but mostly nostalgic.

Lettuce make sure Flash lives on forever now.

Friday Night Funkin' Backstage

Friday Night Funkin' Backstage

It's out! The third and final; the big one. The FNF entry of FNF entries as far as FNF entries I've somewhat participated in now go.

Animator/director/project organizer extraordinaire @recme's been working pretty much non-stop on this the past week and then some, and what a blast it's been to play a part in. You can catch my voice alongside the likes of NG icons like @VoicesByCorey with the contagious enthusiasm and the always professional maybe most known NG VA @Piper!

Plus up-and-coming ditto @AdubsVA, with @tapioca-witch and @RokusWing on backgrounds/cleaning.

Don't miss the details! Here's the link.

And if you missed my earlier participations for some reason here are those two too.

Funk away y'all. All night all dayfall.

Friday Night Funk King

Friday Night Funk King

There's a grand new brand new animatic up on the grounds of which I played a vocal part in! My second FNF jam entry by role of collaboration, with thus far minor contribution, more specifically on the vocal lines and bits (like grunts and hits) you'll hear here and there by inclusion.

The storyline and animation portion's by talented-but-short-on-time-this-time @Mabelma! It's not all crisp and colored and all, but it's as done as it's going to get for the jam, so hopefully y'all enjoy it with storyboard focus. ;)

Hopefully there'll be a full-on fluent and flawless animation to come down the line, and more, and I should be partaking in one final FNF entry coming out last minute tomorrow! More notes on that one then!

For now go watch this thing right here; enjoy!

Pixel Day Raffle Stickers, Games, Promos...

Guess what just arrived in the mail over here!?

Pixel Day Raffle Stickers

Stickers and pins the dopest things. Thank you @Mabelma! :) And Super Happy Belated Pixel Day Forever After The Raffle!!! Shall in some way add to the merriment of this fine holiday with these here stickables next time it comes around... maybe... actually I'd rather frame them and/or stash them away safely in a container that'll keep them pristine forever, as the collector I am, but feels like I oughta showcase 'em somehow somewhere, so if there is any suitable day for such stickering maybe it'd be then...

Though I did just do so above too. If naught else there you go!

In other news I joined a couple game jams last week, if you missed my stuff here's The Flash Flood 2021 and INVISIPONG for the Lies & Tricks and Flash Forward jams in opposing order of linkage. They're both in Flash but should be running flawlessly via Ruffle through those links, for now and hopefully forever!

Also go check out @KillerRATband's new album! Metal instrumental at its most grueling and moody. AKA finest. It's a soundtrack made for the game with the same name, so maybe you'll want to play that too. More info on his page, and you can buy it here.

Somewhat unrelated but very relevant D.Va Clock's also looking for material for her Late Night with D.Va Clock series, which is great, do send her something!

And last but not least if you need a voice for anything, like this recent thing, feel free to hit me up! The smaller the role the better really. ;)

Good day y'all and thanks again for those stickers!

Tom Fulp On Flash & iPods

Flash will hopefully make some smart moves, so I think Flash has a bright future.

Tom Fulp, 2010, on the topic of Flash games running slow in iPhone. Oh how things changed since then...

I imagine in a few years we'll be hosting the site off an ipod.

Go read this old AMA if you want context. So much greatness. So much appreciation and inspiration.

May The Grounds live on for a hundred years and then some.

One Day Voice Acting Woes

Voice acting's no easy business!

I finally got around to trying my lines for a collab I'm participating in. The animator asked for them this week, and it's currently the last day of this week, and I'm not really feeling at the top of my game right now. Some of the lines require laughing like a black man, and never mind the black part, but laughing, naturally?! It may be one of the hardest things you can try. Especially when you're acting.

In real life I've always been somewhat proud of how naturally laughter came to me. When I was younger. When I actually laughed out loud.

I still do just not as frequently; not with the same ease as I did back then. Now it sometimes feels like I have to force authentic laughter just to keep myself happy, and in the realm of voice acting... no dice. Can't do that. Gotta make it sound not forced no matter what.

To make things worse I am running out of voice! I should've started on this when I had plenty of time to spare, for consecutive warm-up's and recording sessions, not one final day after a week without particularly much voicing, where it's all the more difficult to warm up to the warmer tones I need right now. Reminder to keep your voice consistent. And constant. At all times. Always ready.

I voiced a quick role earlier this week, just two lines then, but with this particular project I'm in company of three professional voice actors, of which one usually always does her lines for money, and it'd be a lie to say I'm not slightly intimidated by working with such greats. Like I have a place in their bastions of vocal mastery. Like I can actually do accents. Like I didn't start rapping more because I can't sing than because that's my true passion... or is it?

Maybe it is? Maybe it just really is the best modern day amplification of poetry there is, where focus is on lyrics more so than music and voice; the elements that I feel really matter?

But I better get back to my black voice now. Almost wish I wouldn't have applied for this; that I'd have let the animator find a black dude instead. Or any dude who's good at sounding like a black dude.

But I am good at black dudes! I have the perfect black dude voice.

You'll hear when this collab comes out y'all.

I over-dramatize a bit but that's why I blog you know. To clear my mind and so. And it's good to get out of your comfort zone. Just gotta relax, sound natural, laugh a little, and move onto whatever other dues await today...

They're piling up lately. And making me go crazy. Slightly. But it may be.

Okay.
