Some say BigPopa was not born, but put together using the body parts of the greatest pimps ever to be born. Like some kind of freak zombie, sent here to roam the world. To play video games, terrorize women, and consume the largest amount of whiskey as is humanly possible.
You are not far from the truth...

Well it's that time again. It's time to once again celebrate a friend's birthday the only way I know how.
This is our birthday boy in case you've never met/seen him.
Cat is a big fan of the fighters and is now internet famoos for defeating the fabled Justin Wong in SSF4 at Pax East this year. He was also on an episode of Silent Library on MTV. So if you see him on SF4, be aware, he's good.
Now on to my gifts for Cat. The newest additions to my small photo collection. Enjoy Cat and Happy birthday!!
BTW, Double Viking is a great resource for fellow collectors. Just saying.
Hello my friends and fellow deviants. I know I haven't posted on here in a LOOOOONNNG time but I realized that my little traditional T&A birthday blog should still continue, even if I don't blog anymore. So here's the first of 2010.
Today we celebrate the birth of one of our oldest and most beloved members here at Dtoid. His name is Kryptinite. And yes, he is black.
If you have ever had the honor of being in his presence you will know two things about him within 5 minutes. The first is that he is a gamer through and through. A geek's geek. A man after my own heart. The second is that he is black...and a teddy bear.
Happy birthday you big stud muffin you. And congrats on the new wifey. May you both have many happy years of gaming and doing....stuff.
And now the reason you are all reading this anyways.
Mr. Destructoid and I both wish you many more to come. See you at PAX!
I know many of you have been wondering whether or not the Drunkcast Drinking Challenge is going to be a reality or just something we like to make up and talk about on the show. After fielding about 50 questions from you guys relating to it in the last episode (ok so maybe it was just Duffy and Kryptinite but still, it felt like 50) I knew I needed to make a post detailing the ideas. I laid out the game rules on the show but I also wanted to put it in text for you all. So here we go.
1. The contest will run from Noon until Midnight on friday, September
the fourth. All contestants must be on the front steps to PAX by noon on Friday to be entered into the contest.
2. The contest will be scored. 1 pt for a beer or wine, 2 pts for a
mixed drink, 3 pts for a shot. Bonus points may be awarded for either creative drinks or 'stiff' drinks. Example: Shots of PGA will probably earn a bonus point for each shot.
3. All contestants must have a minimum of one alcoholic drink per hour
for the twelve hours with one exception.
3a. If a contestant enters PAX, they must keep track of how long they
are in there for. Once they exit the building they must go and catch
up to remain eligibleto win.
4. If a contestant misses a drink or falls asleep or throws up(as
might happen later that evening) they are disqualified.
5. If a contestant drinks away from one of the members of Drunkcast,
they must provide photo evidence to validate their claims and to
receive their points.
6. At midnight all the points will be tallied and the winner will
receive $50 in cash to purchase PAX swag along with the title of The
Drunkiest Drunkcaster(or something equally stupid).
7. Non-alcoholic drinks will be allowed to be consumed during the
contest to avoid alcohol sickness.
I considered at first outlawing water and cokes and such during these twelve hours, but seeing as how I love all of you and would hate to be the man responsible for your death, I decided not to. I know the scoring part might be a little unfair to the lightweights, but let's be honest here. It's a drinking contest. Lightweights AREN'T supposed to win.
Photo evidence doesn't have to be sent to my phone it just has to be seen to reward points. And don't tell me you don't have a camera. EVERYONE has a camera phone. So don't be lazy. We will tally the points when we come together. You can, however, give your pictures as proof to any of the Drunkcast crew; myself, blehman, itemforty or coonskin05.
Remember, this contest is supposed to be fun and silly since I'm hoping to get a lot of hilarious photos of you drinking things. It's also going to be based upon trust and the honor code. Don't be a dick and take tons of pics with you holding the same empty beer bottle and then arrive at our pre-arranged meeting spot that night completely sober.
This is also not a Dtoid-sponsored event. This was my idea and it's my cash you are winning. So don't go asking Niero or Nick or Hamza about this. They won't know anything about it nor will they probably care since they have WAYYY too much to do to worry about a drinking contest.
If you have any other questions feel free to post them down below. Also these rules may change slightly if someone comes up with any better ideas. I'll present all rules to everyone on Friday. See you at PAX.
And don't say I never did nothing for ya.
Wouldn't feel right unless I ended it this way. See you at PAX!!
Today is an incredible day. A day this world was blessed with one of it's most illustrious and valuable members. A day where our future King was born. I am talking about the one and only, Evan Burkey!!(king3vbo you twat!). Yes, today our good friend turned a whopping 28 and he's still chasing after those Japanese school girls like he was 27. From his dedication to the Failcast crew and his neverending love of WoW, even in the face of such hatred that only Dtoid can provide, king3vbo is a highly valued part of our community. So without further ado, I give you.....BPG's T&A of king3vbo's Birthday. And no king, there aren't any little boys in here, you sick bastard. See you at PAX!!
So I just had to share this with all of you and especially with Niero since I figured he would get a kick out of it. It has to do with the most amazing dream I have ever had and how Niero, Collette, Dtoid and the rest of you fit in. I hope you enjoy and I apologize in advance for the wall of text.
This little story starts out with me walking up to the door to a very large and expensive house set out in the country somewhere. Geographic location is not important. As I entered the house I was immediately greeted by a very large, monocled person. This individual led me off to my room where I would be sleeping for the duration of my stay there. After I had put my bags away I began to explore this house. In almost every room there were tv's and consoles as well as an entire lan center with about a dozen PC's set up. "Wow", I thought to myself, "This place is bitching!!" I eventually found the end of the house and inside the room that led out onto a deck were 4 of the prettiest girls I, apparently knew, because as soon as I walked through they all yelled, "POPA!!" and gave me awesome hugs. After talking with those lovely ladies for a few moments I went outside onto a deck to look around. There were several others on the deck and they all greeted me as I looked out at the panorama below me.
If any of you have ever rented a cabin in the mountains, you will be familiar with this description. The house was apparently 3 stories high and each level had an outside deck that you could walk out onto from the rear of the house. Out in front of me was a huge yard complete with a pool the size of a football field and a very large contraption set up at on end of it. Let me see if I can find a picture for you. This was the size of the pool.
And this is basically the zipline I was thinking of, except with multiple people and much bigger.
It was basically this but at one end was a huge, multi person starting point. The cable that the zipline followed was the length of the pool and attatched to some poles on the other side that were actually higher up from the starting point. Confused a bit by all of this, nonetheless, I decided to just roll with the things and find out later what exactly it was for. Beyond the zipline/pool was a forest with several trails leading into it at different spots.
After this it becomes fuzzy but I do remember sitting in the pool and talking to a Ms. Collette and Chad, I believe, about the qualities and aerodynamics of a dolphin shaped snorkeling suit. Much rough-housing and pool fun ensued. Later that night, after a huge banquet of a meal, myself, Coonskin and some kid were walking around the nature trails in the woods when we came out of it to find a candlelight ceremony going on. My first thought was, "What is a fraternity doing here?" And then I saw the master of ceremonies walk out with two assistants in robes. He pulled off his cowl and behold, it was our lord and master, Mr. Destructoid. With him were his right-hand assistants, Collette and a certain Mr. Chester. All three of us ducked into the woods to watch the proceedings.
While I could not make out what they were saying, I did realize eventually what was going on. It was the first step for these young souls, in their journey to becoming full member of the Dtoid army. And, as of course dreams go, me and my friends all remembered when we went through a similar ceremony years ago. We watched the ceremony until it ended and then went to bed.
That morning, over a thousand people assembled on the lawn surrounding the pool to watch the next step in the initation process. The first six recruits stepped up onto the platform with Niero and each grapped a zipline handlebar. At a signal from Niero, a switch was pulled and the entire machine cranked to life. The zipline shot the recruits toward the water and then, right when they were about to splash, took a very abrupt upward direction. Most of the recruit lost their grip at that moment but one of them managed to hold on long enough to use the sudden change in direction to slingshot himself a good 40 yards into the deep end. The next thing I knew I was talking to Niero himself and said, "I love seeing who will fall and who will soar." And he said to me, "I just like watching their faces. That's why we set up the camera to take pictures. Just like in a roller coaster."
The day ended with a very annoying ringing going off around the yard. Chad, with a very happy smile on his face, said, "Yay!! It's monday!!"
Then I woke up.
So Niero, Collette, this is what I suggest you do with all that 'money' you have lying around. Build a huge house somewhere in FL where we can have Dtoid army initiations in peace ok? Then you'll really have yourself your very own cult. Now how awesome would that be??
I also think I should stop eating pickles and nacho cheese for dinner while reading Dtoid before bed.
