The music man... it's so fucky. Hans Zimmer nailed it again!
How about some hacker music instead?

This was my first time in years I'm going to pray for the victims of Vegas. I also donated to various support funds and relieves from the victims. I encourage you to do the same since US healthcare is very pricey.
And, guns are not the problem, the people who use them to murder are.

I would never dreamed that an animation inspired by the legendary El Eternauta would appeared on this community.
While the modern liberals cheers and cherish this work of art, little known from outside Argentina its darkest inspiration and metaphor to the comis itself. Capitalism. Its father, Héctor Oesterheld was a socialist guerilla fighter were kidnapped and murdered during the darkest era of South America, Dirty War, started by the bloody coup in Argentina funded by American liberals and capitalists. Most of HGO family including him were murdered during the resistance against fascism.
Every element and event in El Eternauta refers to the real life's metaphor. Capitalism, colonialism, imperialism, class warfare, socialism and nihilism. HGO concept of "group hero", was from socialism's value of mutual aid. The alien invasion was referred to Argentina's darkest coups in their history during the Dirty War. Another main theme of El Eternauta is class struggle. Class struggle or class warfare, is socialism's oldest principal on capitalism and society.
HGO left El Eternauta as a reminder for the darkness that haunted and took his life. But El Eternauta also serves as an important piece of socialism agitprop to educate people and unite them against one single thing: capitalism. The one thing that killing people, killing you and I silently.

Not everybody can drop cash on big libraries with massive orchestra. We all start somewhere. Same for me.
I have used many of these instruments and softwares, that they are capable of first hand's cinematic experience for any beginning composers. If you need demos I can show you where they were used in my music.
I thought of creating this post ever since Ectisity won this year AIM. He proves that people can start out with literally nothing and still best at the game.
And this list
I would like to say for a solid orchestra library with fully equiped instruments of all kinds, including choir, that is ProjectSam Orchestra Essentials 2 $329. Or lightweight orchestra + choir, Sonuscore The Orchestra $375. Or Spitfire Masse, $349. Or minus the choir but with solo brass and winds, NI Symphony Essentials $399. Or EW Symphony Orchestra Silver for $199.
These are high quality and most economic orchestra library. I'd recommend one of the first two if you need full patteles of instruments. Symphony Essentials for the full sets. Masse for instant scoring. And EW SO for tight budget.
GRID II $49
Ambius Prime $149
EDNA Earth $169
Altthough all of the libraries listed above are available in Kontakt Player, I'd recommend you to get full Kontakt version. It will allow you to use many free and high quality instruments.
Please leave your question below or just comment.
Have a good day.

I got nowhere to go. Soundcloud is shit. ReverbNation is shit. So is Myspace and Reddit. VI-Control is too pro for me.
After a month of looking at every option I had, Newgrounds suddenly feel better.
I hope you won't punch in my face for being a world's worst douche bag raged quit this place, then come back begging for it.
bet EDM (or whatever his name is now) had the last laugh...
I REALLY got nowhere to go. Sniff...

I regret that through out years I had not built a fanbase outside of NG. Most of them are just anonymous posting here and there, probing for random experimental projects, including ARMA 3 Resist. And when I decided to leave here, it's maybe time to consider that I should stop depending on this community.
I used to consider NG to be my home. Where things and places are neccessary warm and welcoming. NG is where I first made my beginning stance on sharing music. It was a great platform for newbie musicians. But I'm not newbie anymore. I hate to consider myself as experienced composer, but look like time has outgrown my thought. I thought, I could be one of the few last veteran composers standing in this community and reaching out to help and comfort new musicians.
But then enters the community. It has always been a hit and miss with this community. Non-stop drama. Like if the shit was hilarious then I wouldn't say anything. Just endless childish drama, dragging from one to another. And like a friend of mine used to say: "A bunch of grown-asses acting like manchilds". This is what happened to this community. NGAP can never grow beyond the boring infighting, jealousy, envy, hatred and backward thinking, that these people all believed other more mature and experienced users are out to get their asses.
Everyone here, especially the mods and the current contest judges, both have their own little world and fantasy. Delusion into believing the world would revolve around them all the time. I was easy going with some of the people on here, the top brass, but I could never get close to them no matter how hard I tried. They have their own ego bubble and aura of self-importance that you might as well as avoid them. What I was thinking even tried to be friend with them.
Evidently how they shot down Peter Satera because he was giving advices. Yes all he did was giving criticism to the contest. What was the reply? Like if they were attacking the topics, then I wouldn't say shit. But they were attacking him, like ad hominem straight ahead. Interesting matter is this happened in the past, where Peter did exactly the same thing, giving complaint and advice in another NGADM and got shot down.
People don't feel for other. They at least should have some manner. But nah it's "power trumps experience". And that's what happening here. I'm gonna say all these shit before they come for my ass. People are leaving. And many of them are my friends. It's sad to see the state of things have to end here. Not just sad, but disappointing.
I'll start bulding fanbase on other platforms. Will definitely be way smaller than NG, but at least I know that I could stay away from these toxic drama. Now that I have much more experience than 10 years ago, it's definitely time to move on.
I'm thankful for all the help, advice, support and work come from amazing people like backwardecho, BlueOceans, Mattashi, larrynachos, TheOverGhoul, Ceevro, Ectisity, Chrono, Megabit (MithyxSounds), MysticsSkillz, JacobCadmus... Many thanks to Kelpalots for her awesome knowledge and experience. Big thanks to RealFaction, at least he stays true to his heart. And ForgottenDawn for being a guidance. And this five people that I respect and admire the most, that their talents and heart always deepest: LSD, Jordi, Phono, SoundChris and Peter.
I know I said I had beef with the mods and judges, but there is an exception, Troisnyx. I don't blame her. She's emotional like I am and I feel that she's not intended to be angry or hurtful to people. And Trois' pasts are full of suffering, I understand they affect her current feeling and way of action. I put myself in her shoes and she's a good person. And now she's helping to make the community a bit better. I appreciate that. I still have hope Troisnyx can be the rolling stone that break this bad wall of drama away from the community. But that's just my opinion.
I will not delete my stuff here, unless the mods 'accidentally' wipe them out. They are Public Domain Mark 1.0, meaning free for any uses, or copyleft. And you do not need any permission from me. For the collabs, ask LSD for permission cos he hold the license right.
Take care, and well being for all!

Every four years the population is due to expired from panic attack of corrupted political system. When the liberals blame each other and reationaries, and vice versa. But nobody took the courage strong enough to look through their own soul, just to realize that the problem lies deeper than the Red versus Blue bullshit.
It's not the first time Net Neutrality issue got brought up and being attacked. This issue isn't solely Cheetos Benito's problem. The Democrats-backed FCC constantly attacked net neutrality for their last 2 terms. PIPA, SOPA, ACTA... There is no dichotomy because you are yelling at two faces from the same devil's body. You can never change the system from within. Reformism does not mean change. You are doing the same shit as everyone else. Voting is the illusion of choice in the capitalism plutocracy.
What's the solution? Abolish the system. Self-organize. Educate, agitate, organize. Every step begins from yourselves. Build decentralized and self sustained network and meshnet. Use encryption and free software. Practice security culture. Mutually support each other.
Stop depending on the masters.

In the anniversary of the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World, 111 years, I create this post to honor one of the best musicians I respect and admire. I'm as a Wobbly, honored to learn about this man.
Joe Hill is always as one of the greatest folk musicians in 20th century.
I die with a clear conscience, I die fighting, not like a coward.
No Wobblies from all over the world forget the words and music of Joe Hill.
Workers of the world awaken. Break your chains, demand your rights.
All the wealth you make is taken, by exploiting parasites.
Shall you kneel in deep submission from your cradle to your grave?
Is the height of your ambition to be a good and willing slave?
My will is easy to decide
For there is nothing to divide
My kin don't need to fuss and moan
"Moss does not cling to rolling stone"
My body? Oh, if I could choose
I would to ashes it reduce
And let the merry breezes blow
My dust to where some flowers grow
Perhaps some fading flower then
Would come to life and bloom again.
This is my Last and final Will.
Good Luck to All of you
Rest in Power, Rebel Joe.
I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you or me
Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead,"
"I never died," says he.
