ThatJohnnyGuy's News

Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - May 28th, 2020


This post is about a new single I put out with an artist named Freeki, and it's one of the most important songs (lyrically) that I've put out there, or been a part of. Also, if you want to hire me as a voice actor, I need work. Also, I really need music scouts to help me find music on newgrounds and other platforms for the radio show. If you're interested in helping, let me know!



New Single (with an Important Message) & Freeki


I've been overcoming a lot in therapy, and this is one of the most important songs I'll put out there, because of the steps I'm taking! So here's a preview of a song I collaborated with an artist name Freeki on, "Believe What U Want"! Get the full song at the links below!


Full Song Download (lyrics on BandCamp page): https://freeki.bandcamp.com/track/believe-what-u-want-feat-kid-projekt

https://www.realfaction.net/product-page/kid-projekt-freeki-believe-what-u-want

Follow Freeki on Twitter: https://twitter.com/FreekiOfficial


Normally I post full versions of songs on here, but Freeki and I really worked hard on this one, and he doesn't want to give out our work (which I respect since he spent a lot of time on it). I'll have to ask if he'll eventually make an account and post the full version to Newgrounds. I want this song to help people, empower anyone going through this stuff, so enjoy!



Need a Voice Actor?


If you know anyone who needs a voice actor (or if you do), or voiceover for anything in general like characters for animations, ads for radio/tv/videos in general, I'm looking for work and really need the money. I've done ads for radio (I also have my own radio show), and have a character demo reel here on Newgrounds (Commercial Demo coming soon):


Shoot me a message if you want to hire me! :)


Submit Music to My Radio Show!


I need help getting content for my radio show on PeaceFM, so help me out by submitting your music to me or finding music here on Newgrounds! If you want to tune in live, message me for the discord server. Soon the edited versions will be broadcasting live weekly on Friday nights (eastern time) but I don't know exactly when, so I'll keep you updated on that when I find out.


Love you guys, thanks for your support!

If you need a voice actor, want to help with my radio show (and want to know when the next show is), what I'm working on, or see how I'm doing in general, that's what today's post is about!


Voice Actor for Hire!


If you know anyone who needs a voice actor (or if you do), or voiceover for anything in general like characters for animations, ads for radio/tv/videos in general, direct them here https://www.fiverr.com/share/AGQ5R5 I'm looking for work and really need the money. I've done ads for radio (I also have my own radio show), and have a character demo reel here on Newgrounds (Commercial Demo coming soon):


Alternatively, you can just message me here to hire me and I can give you my PayPal and we can discuss the details and what not.


Radio Show/Need Help!


iu_123408_1743246.jpg


The next broadcast of my radio show "Off the Wall" is Sunday, May 24th, at 4 PM Eastern Time USA. If you want to know how to tune in, comment below and I'll message you a link to the Discord server (because whenever I publicly advertise it, I get trolls who harass me and the other users with racist comments and I'm not tolerating it especially with my mental health right now).


If you want to help out with the show, I need mostly music scouts to send me music they think is good for the show, and run it by me, then have you ask them if it can be played on the show. It'll be easier for me to stock up on music for future broadcasts this way.


Tell them it'll not only broadcasting in two cities in Canada (Dawson Creek & Chetwind, both in British Columbia) to thousands of people, but also one of the radio stations on RadioPlayer Canada, an app where they can listen to our station, PeaceFM, without needing to be in Canada! Also, there's the website stream player: https://www.peaceFM.ca


Mostly the requirements are: No remixes, no covers, no mention of violence, no swearing (or make an edited censored version, it's radio), and it has to at least be 2:30 to 3 minutes long, I won't play super short songs. Thanks!


How I'm Doing, What I'm Up To & New Album Out Now


I haven't been the best mentally, but getting there. I'm taking a break from @TheNewgroundsPodcast, they've been concerned about me and want me to take a few months off to get in a better headspace because they see I'm not alright, and I appreciate that. I don't know when I'll be back, but I really love working on the show, we'll have to see what's going on in a few months. I still want to make Jack Serious bits here and there.


I just released a new Piercing Lazer album, The Other Side Chronicles, and you can get the special edition for $5, which includes a bonus track so check it out (coming to Itunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, other stores. on May 30th): https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com/album/the-other-side-chronicles-special-edition


I also have been working for months on The Greatest Showman World Chorus Medley Collab, unofficial, but I'm working with my friend Aika/Ai-Say again and I'm making snippets of a lot of the songs from the movie, and it's fun. I only have one more song to make, then the singers can sing over all the songs. Woo! Stay tuned for that.


I'm also working slowly on my second Kid Projekt album, I've been writing lyrics about my recent experiences and throughout my life, some relatable songs to some probably. I'm recording vocals for a new song soon, which I'll post when it's done. I've been in therapy and I'm using this project to help me vent, alongside making positive affirmations for myself, and putting them on pictures, sharing them on my twitter.


I'll probably do a new episode of Talking Real soon as well. This is a weird time for me, and my future is really kinda...blank right now. I'm a bit lost and other than the radio show and voice acting, plus having fun with music, I don't know where my life is going. I tried applying for a work-from-home job, but looks like I didn't get it. So...shoot. Oh well, life goes on, just need money.


Love you guys. I'll keep you posted.

So....I made an ass of myself. A Jack Ass to be specific. There was a misunderstanding, and it wasn't communicated to me well, but essentially they still care about me and it's not that I wasn't fitting in or not doing well, it was the fact that I was overworking myself lately and not emotionally or mentally well, and they got concerned. They could have handled it better, but essentially I feel really bad for well...being an ass to them.


We all had miscommunication, so to apologize, and to poke a bit fun of myself for being a Jack Ass, here's Jack Serious (both video and NG audio versions) with an important PSA about taking responsibility for your actions and proper communication, since I'm taking responsibility for this. I'm sorry, guys.



PS: I'm doing a bit better, thank you to the friends who reached out and helped me, and the guy who cleared things up for me about the situation. I never want to make anyone uncomfortable or hurt, I thought there was an injustice, but it was improper communication on both sides and tension I didn't mean to create. Sorry about that.

And now, for a public service announcement. @WaterFlame is following me on Newgrounds. A dream of many years has come true, and now I can die happy. He's inspired a few of my songs in the past, go check out his awesome work.

Also small update, look up Piercing Lazer on Itunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, the works, the new single from my new album is out now, so look for "The Secret" by Piercing Lazer featuring my friend, Katja Macabre on vocals. The rest of the album is out on those stores May 30th, but you can get the exclusive special edition of The Other Side Chronicles album ONLY on BandCamp and my website, right now, for $5!

Life


Taking a small break from everything while trying to see if I can get this work-from-home job, spending way too many hours and days on this cover letter and resume since it's different, my friend is giving my pointers. No worries, I'll be back on @TheNewgroundsPodcast in the soon future. Therapy has helped me a lot, too.


I'm working on some new music little by little also, so stay tuned! ;)


Also might do a new episode of Talking Real soon, when I get proper sleep and after I apply to this job.

Check out the new music video for my new Piercing Lazer (you know, Castle Crashers necromancer theme project) single, "The Secret", featuring my friend, Katja Macabre who did an amazing job on vocals, she filmed and edited the music video for it too. I also uploaded it here on Newgrounds.

This song is something I wrote that's personal to me, about my insecurity, fear, anxiety, and depression. All things I've experience still, and I haven't been okay lately. I might be quiet for a while after this....I don't know, I'm currently hating myself for something that happened. Anyway, check it out, I worked on this album for years, would mean a lot if you bought the single or album The Other Side Chronicles (it's $5).

Hey before I get into it, go buy my new Piercing Lazer album, The Other Side Chonicles. This is the same rock side project that brought you Simple Sight, the necromancer theme song in Castle Crashers in 2008, and my sound has evolved a LOT since!


It's out on my website and bandcamp stores, but coming to Itunes and other digital stores May 30th! Check out the preview too:


Get the album on BandCamp: https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com/album/the-other-side-chronicles-special-edition

Get the album on my website: https://www.realfaction.net/


Also check out the other things I've been involved with and have done recently:


The name Real Faction: What do people think when they see it?


I just realized, do some people look at Real Faction and think the second word is Facts + Action? It would make more sense, but it's not. Idk why I didn't think of this sooner though.


It's Facts + Fiction, like RF is an oxymoron essentially, because the name relates to my life of being surrounded in lies and the fake junk in the music industry pop artists being label puppets, but I want to bring the honest truth, organic music from my heart and soul. It's also a fear of mine of not knowing what's real and what's not, like friends.


But Facts + Action is kinda cool too, it's like taking action with the truth, which I also strongly believe in. So that works too.


I guess the question is this: What was your first impression of what my name meant? How did you see the name Real Faction?


I'm genuinely curious. Because admittedly, it is a strange name. I've considered changing it over the years, but it's stuck with people and I have no idea what I'd change it too, I dunno it has a nice ring to it.

If you want to know all the other creative projects I'm involved with (probably too much stuff) check my other recent post here: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1094352


Also the interview with Scumhouse Studios on the NG Podcast is out:


After MANY years of effort, the new Piercing Lazer album, The Other Side Chronicles, is OUT NOW on BandCamp and my website (links below)! Below is a preview of all the tracks from the special edition of the album. The special edition is only on those pages, what makes it special is it's $5 as a big thank you to all who have supported me this far, and got me out of my abusive household in Florida through donations. I love you guys.


Get the album on BandCamp: https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com/album/the-other-side-chronicles-special-edition

Get the album on my website: https://www.realfaction.net/


Also, you can pick up the instrumental version of the album on my BandCamp and my website too! On my website, you can get the double bundle (both versions) also for only $5! The standard edition is coming to Itunes and other stores May 30th, but sadly I can't control the price on those.


I'd like to give a special thank you to Katja Macabre for singing on this album also, you're gonna love her. Also thank you to @ShadowCat5150 for making an amazing, beautiful album cover.


This album has been a journey about my depression, insecurity, anxiety, and spreading the message of seeing the value in yourself as a human being, to accept yourself for the beautiful person you are, it can be hard sometimes. I hope the album's messages help you.


That's one major project out of the way, whew. Stay tuned for all the other stuff as mentioned in my previous post. PS: If it wasn't for @TomFulp, I would've quit my career many years ago when I used to be a quitter, he kept me going and has immensely supported me. Thanks man.

Been super busy. Working on a new album (or two), voice acting and writing for side money for a show premiering TODAY (Friday April 24th), being a host on @TheNewgroundsPodcast and Off the Wall on PeaceFM, as well as ordering a hard drive to replace my old dying hard-drive to move my computer's data, and soon doing that, and taking breaks on my new Playstation 4.


I released my first 2020 demo reel for my voice acting:


Piercing Lazer Album Update


Kat's laptop had broke for a little while, but she got a fix and is back at recording the vocals, and she's doing a phenomenal job on this last song. It won't be much longer, we're treating this delicately for you guys, we don't half-ass things. I hope this album does well, because the song she's recording, will be released as a single called "The Secret". I wish I could give you a release date, I want to say it'll be next month, we're making it the most for you guys.


I'll post a teaser of the album tracks soon, once she's finished. In the meantime, some of the singles from the album are already out in the Piercing Lazer BandCamp page, if you want to purchase them to support me during the pandemic, https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com


The album cover is by the lovely @ShadowCat5150 who did an amazing job!



GroundsBreaking/GRNDSBreaking Show


For the past few months (or less?) @Xinxinix has started up a podcast (but VERY different) called @GRNDSBreaking which incorporates comedy sketches with my writing and voice acting among others, between the interview bits with artists. It's good stuff, check it out:


I've always wanted to do more with writing and it feels nice to be on a writing team and get paid for it, and do more with my character Jack Serious on both this and @TheNewgroundsPodcast. I had a bunch of scripts shelved from the past 5 years, I was gonna make a one-man-show with all my characters and do comedy skits, do scripted interviews of my own characters, but lacked manpower, so I shelved it, so it's nice to be able to use those scripts, and write new ones.


They'll be coming out every few months, but if we get enough funding on Patreon, the money will come faster to hire the voice actors and writers and more people, maybe even editors to pump this out faster. Support us if you like, there's good rewards: https://www.patreon.com/GRNDSBreaking

The artwork is by the amazing @Template88.

Speaking of @TheNewgroundsPodcast...



The Newgrounds Podcast


I've been on many episodes of @TheNewgroundsPodcast lately, it's been great, on the show, @PsychoGoldfish and I had a great interview yesterday with @AlmightyHans and @Scumhouse Studios (specifically Hannah and Shaggy from the crew) to talk about Satina! The episode should be up sometime next week, but there's so much good content, and the raw audio being almost 2 hours, it MIGHT be a 2-part episode, being two episodes, maybe. I gotta edit it down and see.


I'm currently editing the interview, so that's another thing I have on my plate, I've been doing a lot. GoodL hasn't been catching much of a break lately at his job, so we've been having different people edit different episodes depending, been having issues with that, but we're managing.


In the meantime, go check out the episode we just posted yesterday, the Easter episode with too many hosts and I knew it was a bad idea and chaos ensued but it was pretty funny and Jack Serious gave out the official Jack Serious Mix of Sour Patch Kids, so that was fun and it all worked out go listen to the chaos:


Join our Discord Server to tune into the live broadcasts and hang out: https://discord.gg/Vx256rj


Oh also we got some new logos and art stuff, we're talking about maybe doing merch. @WillKMR is killing it with the artwork, it's good stuff.


iu_114313_1743246.jpg


Music/Content Coming Next


I'm going to be uploading songs I did for soundtracks of cancelled video games that are a part of my music packs you can buy off my website to use for your games at https://www.realfaction.net in the Music Packs section, and there's a player with previews of the songs. The packs are usually around $5 with a good deal of music, promoting those. I won't upload a lot of them, but some in the meantime, spacing them out.


Hopefully soon I can upload that teaser of my new Piercing Lazer album, not sure when it'll be done, hopefully in the next month, or less. Then, there's my hiphop Kid Projekt album I'm working on.


In terms of voice acting, I'm trying to create a 2020 Voice Demo Reel soonm to get more paid work. Helps me while I have no job. Also, In the next week, maybe Monday or Tuesday, I'm going to do the next broadcast of my new radio show Off the Wall with Johnny K. on PeaceFM, broadcasting to a couple stations in Canada when the edited versions get sent there.


If you want your music featured on the show, shoot me a message or email OffTheWallRadio20@gmail.com. Join the live broadcasts on my Discord server: https://discord.gg/m6mWTA3


iu_114312_1743246.jpg


Whew....I've definitely been busy with a lot, eh? In terms of personal life, I've been in therapy and reading a book recommended by my psychologist to take better care of my life. I'm making slow progress, it's painful, but helping. Thank you all who have supported me this far, this post is pretty long. Love you guys!

Canadians and non-Canadians! Want some of your music played on radio? I have a radio show now called Off the Wall on PeaceFM broadcasting in Chetwind and Dawson Creek, both towns in BC, Canada, and to meet the country's regulations, I need more Canadian musicians to play on the show, and would love to have you on! https://www.peacefm.ca



You're welcome to submit music even if you aren't Canadian though, because really we need music in general! We broadcast a pre-recorded show on our Discord server ( https://discord.gg/m6mWTA3 ) and is where we take most of our song submissions, but you can also email us at OffTheWallRadio20@gmail.com and send me your stuff, sending me a Newgrounds link.



We also accept people outside of Newgrounds, and outside of Canada, but we need more Canadian musicians, and musicians in general!


iu_112245_1743246.jpg




Also, come to @TheNewgroundsPodcast Discord server for a special treat next Wednesday, where at 5 PM, I'll be interviewing @AlmightyHans with @PsychoGoldfish, and at the end you can ask Hans questions! He's a swell guy. Here's the link to that server too: https://discord.gg/pnM8mVN
