I was thinking mosquitos or bats but neither fit well for me.

It could also be covid-related. Bat soup. Still not sure what the last line is.

Do these count?

Concept is rather like Charades, but instead of acting, you place tokens on a board of symbols that represent ideas.

Here are a few examples from the print-and-play demo version (board states that a player might potentially create):

The given answer for the last one was bat. (I think the idea of the last line was that they can make the night unpleasant/scary.)

(You can play it online for free, by the way.)
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

I've changed the punctuation of my signature.

Hints:
If you don't know a certain phrase, you can't understand it.
Finish each group before trying to interpret the next group.

I was thinking that as well but mosquitos seem to fit a little better. (even though they're not only unpleasant at night, they sure can make the night unpleasant.)

If I would've said bat I would've specified vampire bat. I don't think most bats feed on blood.

Correction: It was actually mosquito (I misremembered it).

Is it read from left to right? Can you give answer to one of the sections?

No.

Um... how much longer are you going to make us wait? Is there a reason why he can't post his projection publicly?

He is free to post his guess. I just don't want to publicly confirm a partial answer.

(I was constrained by the available emojis and by space. The last two sections
are increasingly vague but should work once you know what you're looking for.)

Can you share if one would need a knowledge base of secular music or culture to understand it?

If you don't know a certain phrase, you can't understand it.

That phrase might fall into that. It's a technical phrase, though, not the name of a particular cultural artifact or creator.

(Also, you're expected to use Google.)

(Also, expect a different emoji-rebus signature once I've come up with one. This was probably too much of a stretch.)

(Edit: Added "or" - the omission was a mistake.)

I think he's seeing the second emoji as a fist.
