Closing TheDoor

Posted by TaintedLogic - September 29th, 2014

Hi everyone,

     In case you hadn't noticed, my username is no longer "TheDoor6." I felt like it wasn't very creative, interesting, or memorable, so I changed it to TaintedLogic. "TheDoor6" was actually based on symbolism. Idk if you guys are familiar with my profile pic on Soundcloud, but I'm supposed to be reaching for the knob of the door (change) and going toward the light outside (my future)...kind of cheesy. Anyway, while that symbolism is still valid in many ways, I think TaintedLogic is much less...dull and stupid than TheDoor6. XD  I hope you guys like it, and if you don't, too bad 'cause it took me all summer to figure out how to make that logo in Photoshop. XD 

     TaintedLogic, while not really symbolic, is just a cool name I thought of when I realized I rarely do things logically. This led to the conclusion that "knowledge is freedom; guilt is knowledge; freedom is guilt," which in itself is tainted logic. Anyway, if you can't keep up with my random philosophical speculations, feel free to form your own opinion on the significance of "TaintedLogic." ;)  So, therefore, the meaning of "TaintedLogic" in my eyes was derived after I had come up with the name, the opposite of which is true for "TheDoor6." It resulted in what is, in my opinion, a much cooler username.

     I also wanted to call myself "TaintedLogic" because now some of my songs can start with "the." For example, I wanted to call my song Storm "The Storm," but "The Door - The Storm" sounded really bizarre. XD  Now I'm just rambling, though...

     I still am a bit bogged down in college apps and stuff to produce a lot of content, but I'll try to stay active on the forums and keep up with my reviews.

     Yeah, besides my username, not a lot has changed...

     Talk to you later everyone...






Now you can't do a collab with Step and call it DoorStep anymore

Oh the horror


True. Well, Step's a thousand times better than I am anyway, so I don't really envision us doing a collab any time soon...Thanks for the response, though, LE.

Awww, and I had grown to love that username of yours :'(
That said, I think you made a really good choice for the new one!
Before I realized you had changed your name, I saw that a weird person I didn't remember becoming a fan to had uploaded an interesting picture to Newgrounds, and I thought "Hey, who's this guy with the pretty cool username?"

Then it hit me that it was you XD

I'm thinking of reading your story tonight, and possibly also responding to your PM!
If I for some reason get distracted, I should have time tomorrow before I leave for the army again :/

Haha, thanks, LSD! I'm really glad you like my new username, and, yeah, I decided to change my old one before I grew to love it too much myself. ;( I hope you've had a restful weekend away from the army. I understand how tough it must be (or maybe I don't), but I'm sure you'll get through it! I'm looking forward to your response, but I probably won't be able to message you back until next weekend. I have a seating audition for my out-of-school orchestra on Friday, and I'm taking the SAT test again on Saturday. ;( Anyway, thanks again! ^^

Can we at least get a compromise going here and have you be TaintedLogic6?!?!

Haha. Didn't realize how attached people were to TheDoor6...myself included. DX
