First award!

2013-07-12 10:34:13 by Damien

Goddamnit.

It took me 7 long goddamn years, but I finally managed to snatch one of these badboys. I know it probably doesn't mean a lot to most of you people, seeing it's only 5th place.
But for me this is one of those things that I've wanted since my first sign up and submission.

I'll never forgot those first submissions I did and completely getting sucked into this world. This amazing world of Newgrounds. I ended up more on the forums than actually collaborating with people.
This is probably one of the many factors why I've never got one of those shiny trophies.
Then there's just bad luck, years of absence and pure laziness.

Pfff, I wanted to do this big joke on facebook how I'd thank the Academy and my family and friends. But after a small realization, I'd figure I'm taking this too far.
And then I wanted to make this big story how long it took for me to get this award, and how much it means to me and stuff. But fuck it. It doesn't mean that much. It's just pixels. Right?

Anyway.
Now it's time to go for daily first, right?
Too bad my next animation won't be able to pull that off. It's the same shit that always misses that award. Short and not funny. But whatever.

Now I get to spam the frontpage with porn and gore! WOOOOO

First award!

Awesome work dude!

I remember waaay back in 09 when I stole 5th place on christmas day for a horrible animated christmas card on my old ng account. It was crazy!

These days though, you just can do that anymore! The bar has risen so much and the community is so concentrated only the truly great stuff makes it there.

The fact that you got 5th means you're on your way! Keep up the awesome work!

Damien responds:

Yeah that's very true. The thing is, I've always been below the bar even though I got better. Because even though I got better, the bar constantly kept going up.
I know I'm explaining this pretty poorly, but I hope you get what I'm saying.
But I'm glad I finally caught up and hope I'll keep doing better.

Me neither man. I thought for sure that Newgrounds would die before I'd manage to snatch an award.
