It's that time again, ladies and germs!
Today, June 19, 2018, we are officially past the half-way point to enter the most efficacious, audacious, occasionally pugnacious AIM2018! Deadline July 8th. See @RealFaction's recent podcast and his response to my review for details.
Note: There have been some rule changes since the AIM2018 FAQ was recorded. Vocal sample packs are allowed, provided you chop them up, don't use any lyrics (this composition is supposed to be 100% your original work!), and essentially use it like you would any choir or vocal stab VST.
There's tons of prizes and a lot of fun to be had. Just remember, somebody's gotta inherit these bad boys from me, and that somebody could be you...
if you meet the deadline... and win first place. At such point I'll send 'em to ya, along with a nice personal letter with hearts and stuff, because you make me happy.
Without further ado, here is the playlist I promised -- which essentially functions like a normal list, but with cool pictures and a descrip -- with the added benefit that someone, namely me, will constantly be there to auto-update it for you and notify you in the comments weekly, provided you're a member of the NGRC or choose to subscribe. ;)
Art by @Nalem, also for sale, with or without text!
As for the Review Crew, here's your first roster, made by @ChronoNomad, filled by yours truly.
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself -- but it's not like I can take too much credit. :P
Next roster should have change stats. Lemme know if I missed anyone, and I'll be sure to update the screenshot. This was the best way I figured to spread the sheet, no pun intended, without anyone with a link being able to edit it.
Also should have a roster by @byteslinger for those of you who love your @Auz lists at some point in the future. No rush on that one though. Meantime you can go and drop your username at NGStats. Pulls monthly.
I'll be back on the first of next month with another update, with an announcement on the 8th so get reviewing!
Quick personal note, I'm about half-way through all my PM's, and I've decided I will start on Patreon. Already got some cool stuff written up there. If interested, check here. First goal is $400, total, for a new PC so I can release projects again. Also got a poll up with some extra info about said projects so please do go vote.
Full NG announcement and discuss to come later, but consider this a preview. :)
Ps, those of you who would like to help me fix my computer situation but don't exactly have monies, I am still doing that 20 reviews per referral jig. 20 constructive reviews for a 10 cent tip at no cost to you. Starving artists, ya can't beat it. All you have to do is sign up here with a spare email, confirm, and shoot me a PM so I know who you are.
Should decide you wanna make some extra dough to afford those fancy studio monitor headphones or whatever like I've snagged in the past, huge bonus, I am willing to teach the tools of the trade, proof of earnings included. At some point I intend to write a review and a howto, since cashout minimum is like a dollar, and who doesn't need an extra dollar every now and then?
But anyway, enough about me. We got stuff to do. Go go go check out that playlist! :*
