Good day sir/madam and welcome to the world of someone who calls himself Anus Mcphanus. In the real world I go by the name of Dan.
The name Anus Mcphanus comes from back in school in 6th form. We had a TV in our common room and I used to bring in my N64 to play games during our lunch breaks. Being in a public (or private to you yanks) school meant that we couldn't shout out obscene profanities so openly and so we made up words/names we could say and not get in any trouble. Eventually these words became associated with a certain person and I became known as Anus Mcphanus which meant arsehole. I thought the name was quite hilarious and so I kept the name and use it as my online and gamer name from then onwards.
In my free time I enjoy being Welsh, taking long walks down the beach and punching small children in the face.
My life is rather dull and uninspiring.
I apparently like to drop my trousers. A lot.
I can't sing but often kid myself into thinking I can.
I do not like things up my butt. Except penis.
This is my sorry arse

Date I signed up to Dtoid 3rd February 2008 (I was a lurker since just before the “World Famous” days but didn’t join the site for ages because I’m a wanker)
How I discovered Dtoid I was looking for some fap material and generally wasting time as a student browsing through the links on gorillamask.net and at the time Dtoid had a lot of articles cropping up there. I read every one of them and loved the gonzo style and humour of the site. Where else could you see a front page post about phallic objects found in the original Rainbow Six: Vegas, the Finnish PS3 porn launch or video games and porn? I’ve been checking the site out daily ever since.
History with Dtoid There were two reasons that finally pushed me into signing up to Dtoid:
1.) Friday Night Fights
Not many people know this but I created the EU FNF. At the time, I didn’t really play much online but I wanted to since it was all the rage after the release of Halo 3 and Modern Warfare 1. So I created an account and tried to organise a FNF for us Europeans since the US was set up and I was jealous because I couldn’t stay up that late to take part. Of course being fresh meat meant that I was mostly ignored. The original line up for the first EU FNF consisted of myself, Wardrox,Justice,Gemsi, Orange Goblin and Brad Drac. Seeing as the EU FNF wasn’t really being noticed Wardrox took control of hosting and promoting it as he was/is well known in the Dtoid community and hence the EU FNF was established.
2.) Play.com live Before the Eurogamer Expo we’ve never had a good games event in the UK. Play.com live looked set to change that and I wanted to go. The problem is that none of my non Dtoid friends are big gamers and weren’t interested in going. So I wrote a C-blog asking who wanted to go and in no time we had a pretty decent sized group going. It’s just a shame the event was bollocks and over half the games that were supposed to be there were not. At the very least we got an exclusive first look at Far Cry 2 and um....Haze.....yeah..... oh and we managed to play Rock Band for the first time in the UK, only about 4 months after its release in the US and 2 months before its general release in Europe.
On the plus side you could say that this event was where Dtoid UK was born, although it pretty much stayed dormant until Hollie took charge last October and turn it into a proper community we can all be proud of. If you live in the UK you seriously need to sign up. You will not regret it!
Random bits of crap about me I am sometimes known as “the (small) Asian one” in Dtoid UK.
Even though by blood I am 100% Chinese, I was born and bred in Newport, South Wales and so I consider myself Welsh/British.
Apparently I am known to drop my trousers.
I am a bit of a Rock Band whore (I own an Ion drum rocker with an extra cymbal, 6 guitars (both Rock Band and Guitar Hero ones), all the Rock Band games, most Guitar Hero games and have spent probably over £100 on DLC).
I beat Nintendo Official Magazine’s best time on the Death Race mode on F-Zero X on the N64.
I enjoy the small things in life such as long walks along the beach and punching small children in the back of the head
Between me and my brother, we have owned all major consoles since the NES except the Master System and Game Gear. I even own a Neo Geo Pocket Colour.
I love Dtoid and being an active member of Dtoid UK has been one of the best things I've ever done in my life ever!
I pronounce scone like cone with an S at the front and not like con with an S on the front.
Like all Asians, when using an abacus I have been known to do sums faster than a calculator.
Despite being 24 years old, I sometimes still get asked for ID for 15 rated games and films. I almost always get ID when buying alcohol and 18 rated stuff.
