Hey there! Before I get into the A.I.M. (Art-Inspired Music) Contest, and NGADM (Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch) updates regarding if you guys are okay with the proposed schedules for this year, go check out my new podcast episode of Talking Real, taking a NEW turn this time, talking about the Geometry Dash situation, and in future episodes, about other things besides my own life like Nintendo and nerd culture.

NGADM/AIM Contest Schedules/Need Help
I've been organizing both contests this year, and it's a BIG responsibility (especially since I'm working a lot with my new job), so I need a Co-Director (basically a second leader when I'm gone at work) for the NGADM. If you know someone responsible, experienced, organized, and can take on the role of second leader, write in the comments who you think would do well.
@TaintedLogic has a proposed schedule for the NGADM as we've been talking about it (here: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1419355/2), IF YOU COMPETE THIS YEAR, let us know if this schedule works for you, we're trying to make most contestants happy with it, so give us feedback? :)
TaintedLogic: (all dates are mm/dd/yy)
("J" denotes judging phase)
Auditions: 5/28/17 - 6/25/17
Auditions (J): 6/26/17 - 7/2/17
(We might even want to let judges start judging earlier than the 26th if there are enough submissions. We'll have to plan ahead of time for this by mandating that no one can change their audition piece after a certain date.)
Round 1: 7/3/17 - 7/16/17
Round 1 (J): 7/17/17 - 7/23/17
Round 2: 7/24/17 - 8/6/17
Round 2 (J): 8/7/17 - 8/11/17
Round 3: 8/12/17 - 8/25/17
Round 3 (J): 8/26/17 - 8/29/17
Round 4: 8/30/17 - 9/12/17
Round 4 (J): 9/13/17 - 9/15/17
Round 5: 9/16/17 - 9/29/17
Round 5 (J): 9/30/17 - 10/2/17
Art-Inspired Music Contest Schedule (still need judges and working on prizes, going to start a thread on that in a week)
March 19th - May 7th (both are Sundays)
Do these schedules work? That way, AIM could still be almost 2 months. If we can finalize the schedule for NGADM soon, AIM can be organized soon, as I want it in March (that is pretty soon, but gives enough time for hype and preperation). Let us know! And, let us know who'd make a good second leader.
Health Condition + Music + Personal Life
Well....apparently we figured out what's been wrong with me for 6 years, FINALLY. I had it as a kid, called Leaky Gut Syndrome (what a mature scientific name...yes it's real). It has been draining me and having multiple symptoms of malnourishment all these years, I'm going to a specialist Friday to get meds for this, hoping my life can be what it was when I could run freely, do lots of things freely, and not get easily tired.
This is why I've been taking a break from music, and my current job has me working 8 1/2 hour shifts 5 days a week...holy moly. Rarely any of my friends hear from me because even on my off days I just want to relax, not much energy. Hopefully meds can clear this all up. I plan on eventually working on Kid Project, Piercing Lazer, and other stuff more.
In the meantime, I'm going to do my podcast series Talking Real weekly, expanding to topics I'm a fan of other than just myself, and making the episodes longer. :) Well that's about it, let me know what you guys think about the stuff I mentioned earlier, next podcast will be after Friday to give updates from the specialist, hopefully, and some Resident Evil 7 thoughts and theories since I've followed every game since the beginning. Later guys, off to work for me.
