About
Who is the DJ? I'm not really a DJ at all to be honest. If you really want to know just ask me...its a long story. I'm a Canadian gamer who reads and writes about video games. I am just as hyped on the industry as I am on playing the games.

What games do I like? I'll try everything and anything twice.

Music is another awesome thing in my life, I've been a part of a lot of fun projects. I'm just learning guitar casually on my own time, but I played drums for about 8 years or so.

Also I work as an compositor (visual effects) in the television and film industry.

Now I know it's been about a million years since I've posted here, but I thought I'd share this with you all. One of my friends and fellow Dtoider, ProfessorPew is doing a research project for his degree on hardcore gaming trends, specifically what consoles people had owned. I decided, hey why no see what my own gaming timeline has been like over my lifetime! I've listed my consoles in order from youngest to oldest, with my age and which games I played the most for that generation.

-Megaman 5
-Fall of the Foot Clan

1991: 386 PC (7 years old)
-Wolfenstein 3D
-Commander Keen
-Duke Nukem

1994: SNES (10 years old)
-Pilotwings
-Super Mario World
-Super Mario Kart

1996: 133 Mhz Pentium (12 years old)
-X-Wing vs TIE Fighter

1998: N64 (14 years old)
-Goldeneye
-Perfect Dark
-Diddy Kong Racing

1999: 500 Mhz Pentium 2 (15 years old)
-X-Wing vs TIE Fighter
-Day of Defeat
-Curse of Monkey Island

2002: Xbox1 (17 years old)
-Halo 1 & 2

Looking back, it's interesting to see how my console gaming was almost perfectly offset from my PC gaming. It's not like I even planned that exactly, my parents were usually the ones buying the computers. As I get older, the gaps in time between consoles got shorter, since I started having my own jobs and income to buy my own stuff. The N64 was the first console I paid for myself and it was such a worthy purchase indeed. I've also noticed that my PC gaming has really decreased in the last generation and is really solely for Half Life games and mods. This could be because of less interest in genres long past like Space combat sims and adventure games.

What about your own gaming timeline? I'd love to see if people had a similar upbringing or if they varied quite a bit from mine. I'll be interested to hear your story, thanks!

Yea I posted this on my website I ♥ lazers, but I thought it might be worth sharing here with all you Dtoiders. CTZ randomly asked me to draw him as Wolverine with adamantium body hair instead of claws....yea he's a special guy....I mean, I love uuuuuu!










This doesn't have much to do with gaming per say, but I thought it was noteworthy anyway. On Saturday night I attended the Star Wars trilogy screening, which was a special last-minute addition to the Siggraph Spark VFX Festival, here in Vancouver. Lucky for me, non other than Dennis Muren was there to introduce the films! I was able to meet him, get my picture taken with him and get him to sign my lightsabre. Yea, I'm a huge geek, but you already knew that right?



I've included some video footage of Dennis Muren's introduction to the films, where he talks about what it was like working on Star Wars, enjoy!

I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach down in my pocket and see what it is?
Then grab onto it, it's just for you.
Give a little squeeze and say: "How do you do?"
There's something in my front pocket...
There's something in my front pocket...
There's something in my front pocket!
