Guyman is going to take longer than I thought it would to finish. I haven't implemented a music maker/player yet. I made good progress on it though.
Check it out here
I updated the site's look because I thought it looked too generic before. This just makes it more generic though probably.
I'll go back to updating the site more often because guyman takes a long time to develop. Right now I'm making an archive of my old work to put up here.

I added the light realm to the site, you can find that by going through a portal on the soup page. I won't be adding anything to the misc
page for now.
to do that.
I'm also going to try to make an album out of midis. I'm not that good at making music so it will probably fail, but it will be an
interesting kind of fail.
Also I learned how to use AJAX.
Next update I will release guyman and other js scripts and my album if it's finished by then.

I rewrote the html for every single page on the site.
Also I started making music again, this time in the form of midis. Maybe I'll put some on this site one day.
This news page is starting to get really long also, I think each year will have its own news page with all of the stuff written that year.
If that makes the pages too long I'll probably split it into two pages per year.
Regarding random changes, I erased the "thanks for reading" from hlcomic because fuck you for reading it, and added a secret in it.
11.9.2020 - 12:45 PM (i should probably go to sleep)
I updated the bienvenido page & download because mediafire's ads everywhere on each download suck. Also this website's code sucks, I'm gonna change
it next update probably. Also next update should be less minor.

I updated the look of the home page again.
Unsurprisingly, weekly updates aren't gonna work out. For a while I've just been adding random stuff to the misc page and haven't made any content
too lazy to pay 5 or so dollars and get a supporter account which lets you do that so I just took on this huge task of making a game from scratch in js
out of nowhere, so the fact that I'm starting to get somewhere is a pretty big accomplishment for me.
You can go look at the game in the alpha state of development. The work in progress name is guyman. I came up with that name when I was half asleep.
> guyman alpha
I want to work on projects that take a long time also and I don't have enough time to churn out fully featured updates on the weekends so that's
the main reason why weekly updates won't happen. In the meantime, I still have a lot of minor pages too add so I'll work on those and guyman at once.

I added the "random" and "soup" sections and made the navigation bar a bit more noticable. Also the site has a halloween theme now.
It's pretty bad.
I was planning on joining webrings a while ago but I think my site being on it's own little random/obscure space on the internet is fitting, at least for now. I haven't
added many secret pages yet, so I should go do that. They might be up at the time of writing this. I really want to update this place more, we'll see if I can update once
a week if I work hard enough. (I can somewhat tell at the time of writing this that it's not gonna work out)
Though this site started as a place for stupid and bad stuff I make, I don't want to make EVERYTHING horrible and unappealing so there'll probably be a shift towards more
weird/abstract content here in the next few months. I'm not getting rid of any stupid and bad stuff here though like Milk Man, and speaking of that I'm not sure if the sequel
will be a jam game because maybe it should be fleshed out better.
Also I learned how to move html elements with js:
Still haven't learned AJAX though.

The site turned a month old a little while ago. It feels like it's been a longer amount of time than that and a shorter amount at the same time.
Anyways, I updated the site again so yay. School has started for me but that doesn't mean I'll churn out less updates I was just being lazy and didn't update the site
for 19 days. Oops.
In the mean time, I've added an old comics archive here which hlcomic was based off of and tweaked some things here and there. I still have a lot of ideas for this site
and I don't think I'll run out any time soon.

I changed the bienvenido download to mediafire like I said I would so I could see the number of downloads and 4 people have downloaded since that happened meanwhile
milk man: shit edition has 0 downloads. I'm not really surprised because milk man is a game that's just way too awful to look at/play.
Right now I'm working on various site tweaks and a new game for the site written in js. After I finish that game I'll make another game for newgrounds and then work
on more content for this site.

The website redisign/overhaul is finally finished and online. I want to add a latest news section to the home page but right now I'm still trying to wrap my head
around AJAX. I also might change the bienvenido download link to mediafire instead of newgrounds so I can see the number of downloads.

The website redesign/overhaul is almost finished, I think it'll be done today. Also I'm going to start writing down the time when I start writing each news post
from now on.
Ok now I'm gonna start writing actual important news, so I'm
gonna have to change the news headline on the home page to
something else other than MINDBLOWING NEWS.
I decided to add an old game I made in july to the website
called Bienvenido: the game lol and it's optimised pretty
badly so I spent the whole day yesterday optimising it
and I finally finished doing so.
I might add more content to it, but that would require me
to rewrite the map editor to be compatible with the newly
optimised game and doing that would take at least 2 days
so I'm just gonna work on finishing the redesign for this
website right now.
felt like righting some more pointless news today. Also damn I
actually wrote righting instead of writing (not fixing that btw)
I think my brain is decaying.
I just made this website look less ugly.
I just made this website.
