When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username brokenrecord6299?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"Well a few years back, me and a few of my friends were hanging out. Me, Torie, and Brandon. It was pretty late, around 11:00 or so, and for some reason we really wanted some Doritos 'Late Night' Taco chips (not the actual taco, they're chips). We were gonna take Torie's car and go to the gas station and get some. Unfortunately, we were walking out the door when Brandon and Torie's mom caught us and said we couldn't because it was too late, and there was a drug dealer that hung around the place. We were really bummed, so we messed around on Brandon's laptop for a while, (not like that, you perverted freaks) and we were listening to music on his iTunes. We were looking for movies to watch, and all of them had pictures of the posters above the names, except for one. It was called The Room. Brandon said it wasn't on iTunes and he had to upload it to the computer. I had never seen it or heard of it before, and they were shocked. They played it immediately, and so we watched it. 1 hour and 31 minutes of the worst, yet most hilarious acting ever, the movie was over. We were talking about it for a while after, and Torie said she had heard that someone made a game out of it. We were all gonna look it up, but I had to go home. The next day, I looked up The Room, The Game. Sure enough, it was on a flash site, Newgrounds. I played the game, and I kind of browsed around. I soon fell in love with the site, and a couple days later, I made an account. One and a half years later, and here I am.

I named myself brokenrecord6299 simply because it was what I wanted to name my band that was going to be famous and make millions (as if). The 6299 is my birthday. I really wish I hadn't put that there, after seeing that no one else used numbers. Oh, well. Frankly, I've tried to change my username a couple of times, (one example is 7TOUGH7LUCK7) but I chickened out for the fear that no one would realize that I was me. Most people call me BR6299 to save time, though."

Changed his name to UncleCubone in December 2013 and to JimmyTheCaterpillar in June 2014.

Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"Oh, definitely. This site definitely helped hit puberty, and grow up. I mastered the art of sarcasm thanks to the members of the forums. It inspired me to draw, to make music, and to make very shitty videos. It's helped me through some tough times, as sappy as that sounds, it's all true. I've put a lot of heart and work into my identity here. Newgrounds, to me, really is a second family/home/whatever. I love Newgrounds, man. I'm probably a huge fuckin' nerd for it, but I don't give a damn."

Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"There are a lot of users I like. Ilssm has been a pretty cool guy to talk to, Skaren was probably the first guy I could consider sort of my friend. Mandog is a total asshole, but he's funny, but he can still eat a dick. New-groundforme was a really good friend, and we were gonna make a video but it fell apart. There are a lot of others, too, like Natick, DLX, ohbombuh and more that I don't feel like naming cuz I'm lazy. The thing I'm somewhat afraid of is that since gone, everyone I know has left, and they've been replaced by sex-joke obsessed kids. I've been honestly, I'm just too goddamn nice. I like everyone."

Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"Yes, but I don't know their names because I ignore them completely."

What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I love the forums, you get the most random topics, and some really intelligent, clever answers. I prefer to post on the general forum, since I don't really fucking care about politics, I just know they need to go up in flames. (I'm an anarchist, excuse me) and I don't really like to get flamed by nerds whenever I say 'I've never heard of that game.' in the Videogames forum. General is for me. There are some really brain-dead topics, really deep conversations, and everything in between, I suppose that's why I enjoy it. There are a couple users that would be interesting, but I've been gone so long I have no idea if they've been interviewed or not."

I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"They do a fine job, although they sometimes occasionally abuse their power late at night and go on banning sprees, although I can't blame 'em. I'd probably do the same thing sometimes. But all in all, they do they're jobs, and they are pretty nice and helpful about it most of the time, so yeah, they are alright in my book. My only complaint is that sometimes they are total wet blankets and they close a thread that, while having no relevancy, everyone is having a lot of fun in it. But they're just doing they're jobs, I suppose."

Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I would love to be a mod! But I don't think I'd be cut out for the job. I seriously doubt people like me enough, and although some are, my posts aren't that quality. But, if I was given the honor, I would probably be a... Well I would just be happy with whatever they give me. However, I'd probably be a forum or audio mod. Maybe flash, but I just don't watch videos and play games as much as I used to."

You make music. Tell our readers how you started making music and what plans you have in the future.

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I was a drummer in a really shitty band back in Kansas. It was called Garage Band #60210 and we never once made a whole song. Eventually, I discovered a site called Jamstudio and it was free to make music, I got a membership and I was obsessed with the thing. I made a lot of music and I was good at it, well, I was better than most of the people there. But I got bored with it, and I moved on to other things. My membership canceled out and I've tried to go back but you pretty much HAVE to buy a membership to have fun. Tightwads. My music postings, will probably be non-existent until I find a music program that's totally free OR if I decide to rejoin Jamstudio. But I wouldn't expect much from me anytime soon. Sorry. However, I'm in the school band. I'm a percussionist, and I'm a really good pianist/mallet player, but there's not really a way to record that stuff during the summer. Besides, I doubt anyone wants to hear mallet music."

You have cats and dogs. How important is having pets for you? Also talk about a funny/interesting situation that you experienced with your pets.

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I love my dogs. I love my cat too, even though he died a few years back. I have two miniature dachshunds, or wiener dogs. A red guy named Spanky, and a black and tan girl named Lulu. When I was seven, I was at a friend's house, and when my mom came to pick me up, she had a little wiener dog on a leash, said his name was Spanky. I didn't know we owned him until a week after we had him, when I asked my mom when his owner was gonna pick him up. I thought we were pet sitting. When we got Lulu, about two years ago, my mom went to Mexico for a week, and I was stuck with taking care of Lulu. Since I was the only person she ever saw for a week, I became her favorite. My mom says when I move out, she's keeping Lulu, but I'm just gonna break in the house and steal her."

The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I didn't realize people were still talking about that. I'm totally used to it. I hated it at first, because it was new, and change always seems bad. The features are much better, and the site itself is much easier to navigate. It was a really good change, but I felt Newgrounds lost a bit of it's edge when the Redesign came, but it's still got plenty to spare. I liked the old Background/Layout a tad bit better, but the the new Background is awesome, too. I like how they change it from time to time. Keep it fresh donchya know. I really like how they added the profile pictures in the forums instead of your level. It makes it a lot easier to remember who's who."

Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"I've almost been murdered. Back when I was too young to stay home alone (I was six), my mom would take me to the home of this guy named Rex. That's what we called him. He was a really big, muscular guy. He had a son named Hunter, and we kicked around and were pals. One day, Hunter was trying to teach me how to tie my shoes and Rex was laying down on the couch behind me. I wasn't getting it, and Hunter was getting irritated with me, and I was getting mad because he was irritated with me. Hunter said something and made me mad, so I raised my fist to punch him. Rex, out of the blue, got up and lifted me off the ground, and started strangling me. He carried me through every room in the house, thank God for me, his wife stopped him and he threw me on the bed and said I couldn't leave the room without tying my shoes. I sat on that bed and cried til my mom came to pick me up. When we got in the car, I told my mom, and we went to the fuzz. For some reason, I told Rex he spanked me with a golden spatula. Then I told them what really happened. Rex went to jail and I don't know if he's still there or not.

So, yeah. It was kind of traumatizing."

What can we expect from you in the future, JimmyTheCaterpillar?

JimmyTheCaterpillar:

"Oh lawd, the hardest question. I'm certainly returning to the forums, more mature, more intelligent. I'm practicing flash more, maybe one day I won't suck at it. But I'll always be a local here, and I'll always try to help the newbies, and tell the occasional funny joke, and say the occasional deep, clever thing. I'll try to stick around, and continue to grow up with the site. Who knows, maybe, just maybe, one day I'll someone here.

But don't count on it."

Oh, wow! I didn't realize that you were going to change every single thing that had to do with my name AND put a notice about me changing it!

Props to you, Asandir, props to you.

Asandir responds:

Good read. Are you planning on interviewing any animators?

Asandir responds:

Thanks! I concentrate on Forum users, since TheInterviewer interviews well known animators, so there are no plans to interview animators for now :)

You might want to fix your little sign-off, it still says "more knowledge about kanef" instead of "more knowledge about brokenrecord6299"

Asandir responds:

Thank you, I changed it :)
