JohnnyGuy's News

Posted by JohnnyGuy - July 28th, 2020


Yes, I did. Listen to the 4-minute podcast below for more info! Lots of great behind the scenes content for anyone who wants to support my work for $5 a month, as a musician, voice actor, and what not. You didn't think I would post noods did you? Nope. :P Check it out (I'm calling it RFTV): https://onlyfans.com/realfaction


Here it is: https://onlyfans.com/realfaction



iu_148755_1743246.jpg



In Case You Get Judgemental & Just Want To Read


People get the misconception OnlyFans is only for modeling, but nope! Any content creators can jump on with non-explicit material too! Some of my fans (you guys) have been asking how to support me further like donations, and I figured this was a good way to do it, and there's a tip option on posts too, if you want to donate more!



OnlyFans Content You'll Recieve As A Subscriber


Early previews of songs, early content, exclusive content, Discord access, see when I'm live, decide what skulls on Halo to turn on my playthrough series, and an exclusive update podcast series called RFTV News (Talking Real won't be about updates anymore, but you'll still hear my radio show and Reality Bytes podcast).


I also got comedy songs on the way, voice acting comedy stuff, an unboxing video for my youtube channel regarding goodies from Japan, a full preview of a song for my new side project, etc. You'll be getting that video early on OnlyFans. Some content will ONLY be on my OnlyFans.



Closing


I needed a new direction, a new era for Real Faction. RFTV is it. OnlyFans. That's the best way to donate to me and support me further, and you'll get lots for it! Thanks guys, you've carried my career far, and I'll still be posting stuff here, and talking with you guys.



Let's see how many people freak out and not read this post or listen to the podcast and actually judge me by jumping to false conclusions. Hehe. Love you guys!

Hey...so I haven't really been okay. The past week has been really rough on me. I lost my friend Dustin Farrow, may he rest in peace. They didn't even say how he died when I attended his funeral, which makes me angry i don't know. He was only 24, and in the past, was one of the best managers I could ever ask for, even if a short time.


Can't Make Music For A Little While/New Episode of Talking Real/New Music Project Previews


Also, rough week because I've had a consistent tension headache the past week where i am extremely sensitive to sounds, because my wisdom teeth finally fully grew in after what, 10, 15 years of slowly growing? And they're only NOW giving me issues as of a month ago. So....i won't be able to make music for a little bit, but the headache is getting better, so maybe sooner than later. In any case, I have to get those teeth taken out soon.


It's quite depressing not being able to play games or make music or do anything to distract myself to cope with the stress, the depression. I did however talk about this in a new episode of Talking Real, and showing you early previews of a couple songs from my new music side project: A Silent Voice. It's something I've been working on, also updates about Piercing Lazer, general music updates, etc.


Depression, Confusion About My Future


I won't lie....as of late i've not been okay. I've felt like this is a dead end, like i've given up on a lot of things, like i don't know what new direction to go. I realize the things i do are hobbies, but im afraid to pursue anything im currently doing as a career. I love the things I do, I pour a lot into them, but...something's missing.


I feel like...i haven't come across it yet. Like i haven't found that thing. But i've failed at many things and never went far enough to carry my life...but i've always wanted that one thing....community, to connect people, to connect to them. Someone reccomended School Secretary for a highschool, as well as Myers-Briggs tests I took recently, and I will say that's caught my interest. I'm just unsure. I feel old, tired, my spirit feels like it's fading sometimes, like it's the end, even when it isn't.


Sorry to sound depressing. I've not been myself, been going through a lot. I didn't even mention the hundreds of dollars car repair I can't afford (but my dad is helping me) and driving around hot weather with no working cold air for 5 hours, so got dehydrated driving all over town for 5 hours to find a place to fill my car with freon just to find out it was a worse problem than I anticipated. So, essentially my efforts meant nothing, I felt defeated.


I guess you could say, in my real life, that's how I feel a lot of the time. Defeated. Like anything I've done to try to stabalize my life in the way I can without working against my mental issues just, the effort means nothing. Even if the coronavirus wasn't around, I've always had this problem. But, that's why I'm in therapy. I'm making progress with therapy, but sometimes I still lack confidence in myself. It's hard sometimes.


Sorry this is long. There won't be any music for a short while, but I have been working on stuff before the past week i've had to deal with this horrible tension headache. I might be able to get back to it soon since I am getting better. Just a lot overwhelming me, been taking a break. Living alone makes it much harder too, I basically almost never see anyone, even before the coronavirus or before I went to florida, I lived alone for 6 1/2 years, a lot of people in town didn't talk to me or come over outside of work.


I have lived a very lonely life for many years, nearing a decade. It's part of my abandonment issues, my trust issues. People scare me, and yet I want to be close to people without being afraid, I want to overcome that fear. I miss a lot of people right now.



So, What Now?


Until I can start making music again (hopefully soon), I'm gonna probably start making more gaming videos again on my youtube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/realfactionmusic ). I recently did one of VRChat with me doing my Kermit the Frog impression, also did my 7 Days to Die comedy series Billy Joe & Company with one of my characters, but next I'm gonna do Halo: The Master Chief Collection starting with either Halo 2, or Halo 3, but with a twist.


If there's a way to turn down the music (originally there never has been, don't know why they didn't make that an option) I want to in certain parts, replace some of the music with my own, that I find fitting, to sorta do something original to stand out from other Halo playthroughs. Only if I can turn down the music in this version for my computer, or find a way to make it work. We'll see. I do have a track from years ago that's very Halo music inspired.


I'm also beta testing a friend's game (someone many of you know very well from years past, he's made many popular NG games I've always been a huge fan of him since I was a kid so it's an honor, I won't say who just yet) that has my music in it, and will be playable on Steam this year in the soon future. I'll keep you posted, still early to talk about.


I also have been thinking about something else, but I won't announce it until later this week, something BIG. It's gonna freak a lot of people out and it's gonna be hilarious, but I also think it's gonna genuinely help me. You'll see. This is all basically stuff I didn't mention in the Talking Real episode because I decided it after the episode, and just released an episode, so no sense in making another one just quite yet.


I'm also voice acting in a collab with voice acting though have to be careful with that too with my sensitive ears due to one of the high pitched voices I have to do for it...lol. Soon, soon. This week probably.


Overall I'm just in a rut, I'm confused, therapy made me change, and made me realize I haven't found my career yet, but I'm trying things, and I enjoy my hobbies, but I haven't figured things out yet. Sometimes I feel defeated I guess. Thanks for being here for me guys, I couldn't do any of this without you, you guys keep me going. Love you, will keep you posted later this week.

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.

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).
