Ah, my first NG News post!

It has been a LONG time that this part of my account remained barren with nothing here to update fans, friends, and enemies of my progress as a voice actor, writer, and musician. Plus what I do for fun.

This is mostly because I have found no need to update anyone on anything, because I'm not content with my progress yet. I have a long way to go, and a lot more work to do before I will ever feel proud enough to boast of my achievements to people I don't even know on a forum as large as a public news bulletin post like these.

However, I feel compelled to write out a long-winded post to fill this area of my account simply so people can get to know a little bit about me as a person instead of making their judgments on how I act around them. I know to some it may come as a surprise, but I am not very good with people. I am extremely introverted, and though I try, I have a hard time staying calm when I talk to anyone. This has given birth to bad habits, like poor word choices, being pretentious, and just being a dick to people sometimes.

I am not trying to cover up my poor choices, I wouldn't be admitting it if I was. However, I would appreciate that people understand that you shouldn't judge me like that, and if you do have problems with how I behave, or how I treat you...you can easily talk to me about it, and I will happily change, or at least pay more attention to what I do simply because I'm not too proud to admit I fucked up sometimes.

There is a person out there who calls himself Phinnycupcakes and this guy has a major beef with me even though I've done nothing to him after I broke off with Spazkid, Redfeather, and the other people over there. Normally I've been ignoring him because I'm sure he's simply trying to get me angry or something, and he wants to provoke something out of me. But, I am mostly just using him as an example, and an excuse, to get some information out here about me that people from that circle of "trolls" love to twist around because something like this doesn't exist:

Those guys like to think I have a big ego because I don't want to work with them. They also think I left over roles, or whatever other lies they love to believe. This is because even when I try to have a conversation with them, they always throw a bunch of repetitive insults at me, and refuse to hold an audience with me. (I wont make the obvious observation, but I think you know what I'd say here.)

I just want to say that they do have a right to be mad, but they're wrong to be so overbearing about the whole situation. The only reason I refused to work with them, and refuse to even pursue any further, the chance to talk it over with any of them is because they always go behind my back for anything surrounding me instead of talking to me. They did it when I talked to them on a regular basis as well. Spazkid, in spite of whatever you want to tell anyone, including yourself, the reason I left the group, and don't want to work with it, is because you didn't tell me anything, no matter how important it was that I knew it. This allowed the other people around you to lie to me, and because I didn't know anything, I believed them. Yes, it was a mistake, but it could've been avoided if you would have simply talked to me instead of just telling everyone else and expecting them to relay the info to me. I am in no way difficult to reach, and I wasn't then either. Because you continually chose to simply triangulate, and avoid me, I didn't feel that working with you was a positive thing. At all.

If you think I'm wrong, feel free to tell me, but I would appreciate it if you, and the others would move on, and back off. If you're really so sure I'm not going to go anywhere, why draw so much attention to me? It would be easier if we both just ended it by agreeing to disagree and go do our own things.

Okay, THAT'S out of the way, on to important things:

Why not introduce myself to you buys for the first time? It'll be like we just met all over again! People enjoy calling me Druox (pronounced droo-ox) or Drew, though neither are my name. My name is Dreux, (pronounced Drew). I like this weird spelling because I don't even need to make up a stage name, I simply have to show them my driver's license. Haha!

I'm currently studying in a school centered on sound recording, and editting so when I am finished I can work in the entertainment business. I have a lot of passion for the entertainment business, and I would be honored even to make a small contribution to it and be able to legally say that it was my job to do so! It's my dream, and I am working as hard as I am physically able, and beyond, to get there!

Not many people that have met on the internet even know what I look like. This would be because I haven't had a picture available on the internet in over 5 years now. There is a picture of me when I was 16 that phinny, and other people like him, decided to parade around and assume that's exactly how I look now.

I will have you know I have facial hair, thanks. Haha, and yes. I am fat and ugly, I know that. Why do you think I don't put pictures of myself everywhere? But, I'll put a pic up I took today, just so people can see my ugly face and feel better about themselves. It'll be my good deed for the year. :) Photo was taken on a bad phone camera, but it's better than nothing, I guess.

I've had a fun life, and I'm a spoiled brat because my parents love me a lot. But, I have had a hard time when it comes to social interaction, feel free to ask if you want me to go on and on about all the fucked up shit people have done to me, but if you don't want to know, I wont waste your time.

This post is just here mainly to take up this barren space on my page. I figure I might as well post SOMETHING if I'm gonna be appearing in stuff on here.

Oh, and if you haven't bought "No Time To Explain" you should! Click here to not only support me, but an indie developer that does an awesome job! I hope these guys make more, it was a lot of fun working for them. I hope they liked working with me too. Haha!

So that's me in a VERY SMALL nutshell. I hope some of you people out these decide to give me a chance and get to know me as a friend instead of keeping me a stranger, or something you hate.

-Druox

P.S.
I can't wait to see all the wonderful pearls of knowledge the NG community will share with me when they leave comments! =D

And have a very merry Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza/Etc . I hope you guys got what you wanted, and got to be with your families over the hollidays!

Merry Christmas

Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself, even if I personally know some of it already!

I honestly think you're a nice guy, even if you've had your share of problems and mistakes, so I hope others are willing to take a chance to get to know you better like I have!

Happy holidays and happy new year~<3

WHAT THE FUCK "Dreux" is pronounced "Drew"??

and yea the only picture of me on the internet for a while was this one:
http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/photos -ak-snc1/v2717/62/77/633426460/n63342 6460_2122803_5400435.jpg uuuuhhhhhhhhh
I just recently changed all my avatars and profile pics to be a photo of me cos I just recently started looking like a regular fucking human being.
And anyone who's give me shit about it has had a naruto avatar, so I feel pretty good about that.

Also don't argue with people on the internet- ever. Ever. Ever.
Don't call people out, don't "those guys, these guys, this guy" anyone, just remove words like "beef" and "trolling" from your lexicon. Cos none of it's real, and everyone on the internet is just some random dude like you n me. Let's not be gossiping schoolgirls here.

+I never mentioned, but when I went to Minecon I met Tomamato for like 10 seconds and he spent it sayin that that Druox guy is the REAL EFFIN DEAL, then he left.

DruoxtheShredder responds:

haha, I will admit that Tomamoto liking my work has always given me a huge boner. lol, I always looked up to him. I appreciate the opportunity to work with you and Alex on that awesome game. I hope I will get more opportunities in the future!

Also, I don't feel that I'm arguing with them, it's just that he, specifically, feels obligated to comment something taking the piss on EVERYTHING that has me in it that makes it to the front page. It gets to the point that everyone I work with has to chat it over with me because they don't understand why he's so angry at me. It's just annoying to restate the same things over and over again.

Obviously not enough to make me even think about stopping, but enough to want to get the "real story" out there from my point of view since I never did before =/

Heh, i've had my fair share of Red bombarding me with so many faggot insults, there's literally a chalk board dedicated to me on the right side of his magnet covered fridge with about over 200 marks scratch inward.

but aside from those fun guys, i always thought you to be a damn good passionate vocalist especially with metal covers. i mean fuck, when i first heard the chris chan theme, i was blown away, i laughed pretty damn well throughout the show but what got and kept me watching was always hearing that catchy jingle of yours
also those prank calls you use to do were pretty hilarious as well.

you make great as a hardcore voice actor and being a rad addition to the newgrounds community. What with everything by everyone be without one of us in picture?

thanks for sharing with us, keep rockin on dreux.

oh and another thing, you ain't bad lookin bro; hell you pretty much topple over most of our mugs >:)

it's only a story in your head, there is no real story besides that some dude I've never heard of (out of a hundred thousand other dudes) is being unfunny and weird.

Maybe this is just me who thinks like this, cos I've bin here since like 2004 and I'm not a part of the community at all. So maybe I don't notice that this random guy is like the president or something.

DruoxtheShredder responds:

maybe I want the attention from him and his group because it's working in my favor? For I am an evil genius and what-not. Besides, can't a guy have a little fun with strangers on the internet? :(

I mostly just wanted to get my final say and stuff so I don't have to repeat myself. Mostly to save time, it's over in my head at this point. I just feel that I'd like something to show I'm interested in what everyone says and does because I'm such an active member of the..community and stuff. Regardless of who he is or what is happening, I still want a sandwich, and am going to make one.
