Hey! So, I've been posting a handful the past few days regarding the AIM contest and other podcasts, so don't miss out! I'll explain below!
Before I get into that though, there's 2 artists you all should follow because they're really talented! Firstly, there's @ShadowCat5150 who made my newest persona artwork, she's a good friend of mine and I think one of her pieces should be frontpaged ( this one: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/shadowcat5150/meow ).
Secondly, Hyperlamb/LNTRNGRL (https://lntrngrl.newgrounds.com/ ) is a talented musician you should follow! @lntrngrl also, your music wouldn't go in Synthwave btw, the new stuff I heard on your NG page would go in Chipstep or Nerdcore, some of your stuff is house too. Look around the portal in those genres and you'll see what I mean.
Firstly, besides my personal podcasts (one episode of Reinvention that talks about the origin of the contest below), I have made a couple podcasts on the AIM contest, and some people haven't been reading the rules again...like people posting discussion in the submissions thread. Please don't do that.
I explain the rules in one podcast, while my latest FAQ podcast clears up some grey areas, some confuding things about the rules I shed light on. PS: Ignore the 18+ rule in the podcast, it's 13+.

It's been a while since I've done an episode of this series, but basically brings you up to speed as to all the projects and stuff I've been working on and involved with, such as landing the lead role of Darnell, in the upcoming Newgrounds Audio Portal's 15th Anniversary Collab, and making some music for it. I mention a few other things like going to Nashville, TN next month, where I was born. It's going to be an eventful year.
TR Season 3 Episode 4 (the new episode):
REINVENTION: THE AUDIOBIOGRAPHY OF REAL FACTION
This is my autobiography series following my music career the past 12 years, sharing stories about past albums, the process behind my music, and life stories as well. It actually follows a couple long posts I made that took hours to write, it's a lot to read though, this would be easier to take in, plus it has extra details I didn't put in the posts. So, if you're curious about my past regarding my music and life, this podcast series is for you.
Episode 5: 2012 Part 1: Art-Inspired Music Contest and Persona Birth:
So this isn't a podcast, but a playlist of stuff I worked on that never saw the light of day until now. With that said, I had like almost 60 demos I found, but I'm not releasing all of them, as some I weren't happy with, and a lot of them are one-minute chunks of things I didn't finish. I will, however, be releasing at least 30-40 more demos over the course of the year. Some of them I wish I could have finished and I am happy with.
That's about it for now, Talking Real is really all the updates of what I'm up to besides that. Love you guys! Good luck in AIM!
