I'm a long time NG user best known for Uniwar which I made in high school. It was one of the first space shooting games on NG. I held a high rank in the Portal with it for a few months and then again with Uniwar LC.

I've spent the last few days processing the death of Newgrounds user Alex Lefkowitz, aka. aml51z and posted a little retrospective of his life's works in Flash in the movie portal. Our friendship was online only and we talked just about daily from 2001-2005.  We started out on the wrong foot with harshly criticizing each other's work and then manned-the-hell-up, took that criticism to heart, and helped each other become better artists and programmers. He soon became way better than I ever could be and moved onto some great things after our college years.

 

I uploaded a memorial retrospective in The Portal for those both familiar and unfamiliar with his works. He had his account deleted due to personal reasons, but everything of his is now available on his website to view. This is for you, friend.

Big props to @redactedprofile for creating his memorial web page.

On 09/29/14, with the help of Minister Las Vegas Gene Simmons, I married the woman of my dreams after a three years together in a wild rock & roll themed wedding in Henderson, NV.  I met her in a writing seminar back in 2011 and we've been inseparable since.  Doesn't she look like a cross between Betty Page, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn?

In other news, I've gotten into photography last year.  I haven't posted much on NG since they don't allow photography in their art, so you can catch that on my Deviantart page.  I haven't messed with Flash much lately, but I'd like to get back into it.  I also haven't given up on my novel, but I've had nother commitments lately.

It's been a while, Newgrounds. I haven't actively been on here in a long time, but I've occasionally poked my head in to see what's up. I've gotten a new DSLR camera (Canon T3i) and have been learning to master that as well as any DSLR features in Photoshop. I got some stuff on my Deviantart profile for those interested. I also looked back and was surprised and saddened at the NG users who have been reported as having passed away over the years.

I've signed up for Adobe Creative Cloud and I recommend anyone who uses Adobe products to sign up. As a student, you get all the Adobe applications from the Master Suite for $30 a month or $50 for non students which is much easier to swallow than $2,500 for the Master Suite. Good to see Adobe is making their software much more affordable. Given Adobe's turnaround time for a new version every 2 years, you end up paying way less for their stuff. I don't know how sales have been so far, but I can imagine piracy of their programs taking a swan-dive. I also plan to get back into Flash games in due time as well. I've been away from it for so long that there's so much to relearn with AS3. I like that tweening has been made more like Director's tweening in some ways (speaking of which, I'm surprised that hasn't been brought into the Creative Suite/Cloud).

I replayed the Combat Instinct trilogy and rewatched some of my oldschool Portal favs to get me inspired. I really love what NG has become. I would have loved a project system like this when I was a kid and I'm hoping the 14 year olds getting into Flash like I was are eating it up. They even have a personal ad system for people looking to team up (ie. artist seeking programmer and musician, etc). I'm extremely happy for Tom Fulp and his friends/family for what they've put together on this site over the years. This site truly has changed my creative life for the better. I hope to see familiar faces stop in and new ones alike.

It may be a game called Uniwar, but it has nothing to do with me or my Flash work. It looks cool though and I'd probably buy it if I had an iPhone. Future Uniwar related work by myself will be under the title The Ideal Soldier.

http://www.uniwar.com/

It's real funny, I used to (kinda) own that domain back in junior year of High School. I say kinda because it was through that one company that gave a domain to you for free for a year, and when your year was up, they squatted it and held it for ransom. I guess these guys paid it.

It's been years since I had a website online and now the series formerly known as Uniwar has been given a new home! The very few of you who still remember the old iterations of the site will be very surprised at what you find. It's no Flash, no pictures of characters, and pretty no nonsense. Anything Uniwar related is nonexistant since the main purpose of it is promotion of the book I'm working on. I will also say the site isn't entirely about me either. The forum offered I hope will become a hotbed of activity for aspiring sci-fi authors to throw ideas around and get the word out about their books in progress as well. Old Uniwar fans are more than welcome to come by and reminisce in the off topic forum. I'm curious how big of a crowd on NG fits into the aspiring writer category.

For those interested, it's www.idealsoldier.com

And on a completely unrelated note, if you haven't already, go find a theater carrying it and watch Let the Right One In.

I dare say it just might top The Dark Knight as my favorite movie of the year.

Hey all. I'd like to give a shout out to Tom Fulp and the rest of the NG crew for the fabulous job they did on the new layout. There's definitely some bugs right now (or maybe its that NG has been offline for a day and it's getting slammed now), but that's to be expected. I'm just absolutely thrilled with all the new features. I'd also like to take the chance to promote my new submission to the portal, a trailer for my 11 minute long short film featured in the Phoenix Film Festival entitled "Four Minutes". I hope it gets your appetite going for the final movie, hitting the portal 07-31-07.

Watch the trailer for "Four Minutes"
