I am Io - the eternal. Hey guys, the names Shawn, but you may remember me by my old account, Chronamut. I have been submitting music to this site since 2003, and I have hundreds of songs and artworks. I hope to return and to bring the era of fun back!

Hey guys!

So in case you didn't know I used to be Chronamut, but due to reasons I am now using this account, IoTheEternal. You'll see "IoChron" in a lot of my songs, which is a fusion of the 2 names, so be sure to look out for it!

I have also made an "IoChron" account which I will eventually use as my main account. I will leave this account just for remasters of my old music. You can follow the IoChron account here: https://iochron.newgrounds.com/

So I had almost 1700 fans on my old account, and it's rather difficult to track them all down, so if you liked my old stuff, then please follow this account as well! (And if you never followed my old account be sure to follow it too!)


New songs:

+*+(Lemmings Medley)+*~_0

*+*+(IoChron - Allegretto)+*~_0

*+*+(IoChron - Bits & Pieces - Vol. 1)+*~_0

*+*+(IoChron - Halloween Horror)+*~_0

*+*+(IoChron - The Promise)+*~_0

You'll notice all my songs have ascii art too. The first half "*+*+" was my old song branding i used to put on my songs to let everyone know they were my songs - so +*+*(Whatever)*+*+ would be my old stuff. Then later on in my career I changed it to just a flourish on the end  so whatever+*~_0 - so now I combine both to honour the past: 

*+*+(IoChron - whatever)+*~_0



So I 've been thinking about bringing the NACs back (Newgrounds Audio Contest) - I ran them for 24 consecutive months around 2010-2012 - we awarded prizes, sigs, reviews by the all star cast judges and overall good itmes - if oyu are interested in seeing these come back please express your interest in THIS THREAD.


So what's new with me? Well I have been slowly growing the audio valhalla discord, home to fthe greatest ngs musicians - we currently have about 150 uesers in there and it's steadily increasing all the time! It's been open since may of this year. Users ike B0UNCE, czer323, dj-nate, Psybot waterflame, to name a few, and of course me :)

That room is invite only though as some malicious people were tryng to flood it so I had to put an end to that. So now I am limiting it only to people who have submitted a sizeable contribution of audio to the portal.


You may notice at times that my spelling is atrotious - last year I got a vaccine and it did not jive well with my system - I ended up with brain damage which causes gaps in my thinking and has screwed up my ability to type properly. It sucks, and I am doing detoxes to try to reverse it, but the going is slow. My long term memory seems fine it's just my short term memory.


Started a new job last year, last year and this year have been big emotional upheavals for me. My best friend committed suicide and it really made me wonder where my life was leading. Newgrounds finally let me back on the site after 4 years of excommunicating me, so I have had to deal with a lot of those resentment emotions. I am trying to keep a low profile and avoid the forums these days - I don't want to give the site any ammunition to use against me. I mainly just post in the discord and audio and supporter forums and anywhere else if I am mentioned.


I have been trying to clean up the audio portal as the redesign left lots of 5ed songs on the charts - over 500 pages just in electronic - and that should never really exist. So been slowly going through and honestly voting and reviewing things, but the going is slow.

Been working on some art, remastering all my old songs, and working on an online riddle I am building: http://chronriddles.com - it's rather cool - click general hints to figure out how to play it.

and of course there is always my main art site: http://ShawnDall.com where I display all my art for sale, and more of my links to other stuff in the about me section.


So yeah feel free to follow my journey here, for however long I last until I piss off some staff member and get banished again lol..

(also keep in mind sending a ffreind request is not the same as following a user - flick the big "follow" button hehe)
