Aaron "Mxy" Yost was an admin for the Dtoid Forums, and hosted/produced the Radio Destructoid podcast with some of the other Dtoid community managers. He also has a dark secret that must never be revealed, lest the world be split asunder.
Pronunciation: "Miks-yez-pit-lik" Most people just pronounce it "Mixie" for short.
I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.
I am a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
I'm not sorry for the things I've said. There's a wild man in my head.
I am two with nature.
I'm a bird who doesn't sing because I have an answer, I sing because I have a song.
I mostly come at night... Mostly.
I'm an alligator, I'm a mama-papa coming for you.
I'm the space invader, I'll be a rock 'n' rollin' bitch for
I'm like, you know... this guy.
You should listen to Radio Destructoid! It's the best podcast ever, except for those other ones that are better.
Written by Aaron Yost (me) and Ben Smith, with invaluable suggestions by Rob Smith and Bones Mckeen. Starring Aaron Yost, Ben Smith, and Jen Moreland. Edited by Ben Smith.
Total cost to make the video: $13.
We had about 40 minutes of raw footage. We'll be editing together a blooper reel in the near future.
I'm fully aware that I say "Blitz 2 The League" in the video. You'll have to forgive me, as I was insane with homicidal rage.
That's a Virginia Tech football we used, and yes that's intended as a tasteless joke.
The last shot where I tackle Jen accidentally turned out to be a real full speed hit, knocking both of us to the ground. I ended up with a cut eyebrow and scraped knee, and she ended up with a bruised ass.
Ben and Rob have been making excellent short films for quite some time, you can see more of their work at the Airport Road and Church of the Holy Weirdo YouTube channels. Check them out, and if you enjoy their stuff be sure to comment and subscribe!
I also have some news I'm really excited about. Internet Superstar and International Playboy Geoff Mendicino has asked me to start blogging for the front page of FreezeCracker.com. I'll be writing commentary on gaming news and current events, as well as the occasional feature. I have my first two stories already posted, and after I finish with my operator license exam tomorrow I'll hopefully be posting a few articles each day. I'd love feedback if you have the time!
Ben and I also are going to be working together on a regular gaming video show for the site. The above contest entry is our first video together, so if you enjoyed it keep watching FreezeCracker.com for more! We're also trying to come up with a name for our show, if any of you have some ideas please let us know in the comments!
