WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAHHHHOOO!!! I Got myself a brand spanking new MACBOOK PRO. Oh baby, I needed a laptop like a retard needs to get the point... DRASTICALLY. I have been meaning to get one forever now. I have had to use this crappy 800 * 600 monitor rental laptop from my school for this entire year, but now that I am out of high school its time to upgrade to the big guns for college. I am going to be doing a lot of production work with this, including creating my own company called "Sumbles Technologies" or some gay ass name like that... well ok I already have it made and I already gave it that gay ass name. I even have this gay ass mission statement and rate sheet. I charge 15$ an hour for doing websites, music and audio production, logo design, and computer maintenance. Its pretty much local but I am getting in some awesome experience in working. Looks like there is no room for fun for me this summer... ehh that was expected.
Anyway, I just returned home from going to Wahington DC. I have about 9GB of HD video so im going to send out some footage soon if anyone cares. I have this shot of some crazy bird lady on a bridge. OW THATS ENTERTAINMENT! When I got back home i received some cash from Tom Fulp on my paypal account, and was surprised. It was apparently my earned winnings from Pico Day. I voiced Picanjo in Hunting To Picanjo. This cash, however, has caused a huge problem between my good friend.. well use-to-be-good-friend, Hulalaoo.
He seems to think that I "stole" this money from him. He thinks im some american taking advantage of a foreigner. I do not understand why he thinks this, since he said himself that he would give me 20% of the profits even though I declined. He brought it down to 15%, which was fine with me since I created SFX for the flash as well as did some voice work for Dad, P-Bot, M-Bot, Tankman (not used), and Picanjo. I thought 10 minutes of recorded sounds and voices is good enough for 10%, but he charitably suggested 15%. I agreed and we went on to finish the movie in time for Pico Day, with the rushed ending but give him some slack he had like.. two weeks to work. I loved it really, that guy does some awesome anime fighting style flash movies, this one being one of his best.
Instead of confronting me up front and discussing the terms of this payment, he instead secretly deleted me from the co-authors list, blocked me from sending him any messages, and directed a friend of his to say, "we take you off Hunting To Picanjo, have fun with dick lol" At first I didn't understand what this comment meant, but after realizing that Hunting To Picanjo was no longer under my recent flash submissions, I quickly sent the commentor a PM asking wtf was going on.
Some discussion later, and lots of "suck my cock" at my direction, I sent proof of his messages promosing me 15% in both video and picture formats. Hulalaoo never sent me any messages. I never have heard back from his friends ever since I gave them the evidence, so I still am left in confusion. I don't know why Hulalaoo would get so pissed at me after we had all that talk about me getting 15%, after he personally entered in the % of money I get from the flash in the flash editing page, and after Tom Fulp received this information given by Hulalaoo and gave m the money in my paypal.
I have known people here on NG forever and all of you know I wouldnt ever steal money from anyone, I have evn tried contacting Hulalaoo asking to give my money BACK to him to avoid any conflict, but I am blocked so there is no way I can contact him. If there is anyone who would like to back me up on this, That would be great. Until then, I hope hulalaoo reads this and understand I mean no harm. I even wanted to work with him on various side projects.
