My post mood is only "elated" because "ecstatic" isn't an option...

I just wanted to thank everyone again for the tremendous and unexpected response that "History of an Animation" has gotten here on Newgrounds. I really didn't expect it to do very well - not as well as my last two, anyways - but I've been absolutely overwhelmed by what's happened since it went up. A Daily Feature, Weekly 10th, Front Page... I never imagined that any of that was possible for me. Thank you all so much.

Some more good news regarding "History of an Animation" is that it's drawing some attention to my old movies, which sadly (for me) went pretty much unnoticed their first time around on Newgrounds. I had really hoped to get them into the "Music Videos" category - "End of the World," at the very least, which I still think has the best story out of any of my movies. If anyone is reading this and liked "History of an Animation," I ask that you check out my first two films and, if you like either of them, that you recommend them to a category.

Now for future stuff. Once people stop talking about "History of an Animation" I'll probably disappear for a while again. That's kind of how I work - I only appear once a year to post a project, then go off to work again. However, my newfound (relative) success and sudden abundance of free time have made me want to be a bigger part of Newgrounds. Whether this means participating in the big events (it's not too late for Pico Day, is it?) or just making more short films (ones that aren't blamworthy), I haven't really decided yet. But I'll make sure that, in keeping with my policy, anything that gets posted must meet a certain level of quality. I need to be proud of it.

I'll see you all later, and thanks again!
