My To Do List


Seriously, though. I'm getting fat.

So you were one of the lucky few who managed to snag a pass to PAX this year. How exciting! You've got your flights booked, your hotel reserved, and your bags packed (boy, you're really on the ball this year), but there's still one thing missing:


YOUR FRIENDS!


Suddenly, you come to the overwhelming realization that some of your best Dtoid buds and budettes won't be able to make the trek to Seattle this year, and that makes you do a super duper sad! But what can you do about it? Here's an idea:


TAKE THEM WITH YOU!


That's right, folks. Thanks to the power of paper and ink technology, we Dtoiders are in the unique position to adopt the avatars of our less-fortunate brethren and brethrenettes to join us on our PAX journeys!

But how does that work, you ask? It's easy!



If you're going to PAX and want to bring a friend with you, just print out their avatar and put it in your suitcase! (Lamination is always a good idea as well, but certainly not required.) Hell, if you've got lots of friends, print out four or five! You can even get creative with your avatars like I did last year (see above) -- it's totally up to you!

If you're not going to PAX, just write a Cblog and beg someone to adopt you! (Here's a good example from a few years back by our own ChillyBilly.) Or, hit up someone personally. Whatever you do, DON'T BE SHY! This is a long-standing Dtoid tradition, so even if it's your first day here and you don't really know anyone yet, I assure you: someone WILL adopt you.

Then, once all you adopters are in Seattle, just take your adoptees' avatars with you wherever you go and snap a bunch of photos! How involved you are as an adoptive parent is totally up to you; the important thing is that you just have fun! Oh, and be sure to share your adventure with us when you get back. (Here's an example of what I did for T3HM0RR0W during my very first PAX adventure. And here's what Dtoid alum Sean Carey did for me when I couldn't go back in 2010.)

The only thing that matters here is that we grow stronger as a community -- after all, that's what PAX is all about :)

So what are you waiting for?! Go adopt some avatars!

Me in Idaho

Due to an uninteresting series of events, my family will be moving to Boise on March 8th. I will continue working at my same day job (from home) and also performing my Dtoid duties (hehe, doody), so not much will change other than the fact that I will have no IRL friends to play couch co-op with and touch in romantic ways.

And so, I write this blog with one simple plea: are there any Boise-area Dtoiders out there? And if so, will one of you be my friend?

Thanks <3

It's been a long time coming. (Like my wiener!)

As my daily duties direct my attention elsewhere and I find myself being pulled in more directions than my penis when my wife and kids are gone for the weekend and I have the house to myself, I've found myself more and more in need of someone who can offer the Community Blogs the love and attention they truly deserve. Someone to laugh with you. Someone to cry with you. And someone to fucking cut you when you post four goddamn blogs back to back promoting your goddamn YouTube videos.

Well after some serious soul searching (I am the king of alliteration) and more than a few faps, it hit me (not the fap): what better person to fill that role than the only man I've ever allowed to wear my robe*?!


*Not true. Many men have worn my robe. I am a slut.

Occam's role here will be much the same as Mxy's and Bloodspray's in the Forums: help new members find their voice (and not piss off the rest of us), encourage fun and fruitful discourse, and be your go-to guy for all things bloggin'. I mean, the dude's already here 24/7, so I might as well give him a job, right?

With Occam's help, I also hope to give a jump-start to the fledgling blog promotion process, which I have sadly not been able to stay on top of by myself. Between the two of us, we will certainly see a lot more promote-able blogs than any one man could on his own (because my two eyes + his three eyes = five eyes), so please, PLEASE keep writing them!

And that's about it! Let's all give Occam a hearty reacharound I MEAN CONGRATULATIONS and wish him well with his new gig. Together -- and that includes you! -- we will inject a bit of much-needed and long-overdue love juice back into this place, and I can't wait to see where we go from here.

See ya, ya fucks!

Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know how much you mean to me. If it weren't for Destructoid, I wouldn't be half the person -- half the husband, half the father, half the man -- I am today. This place means the world to me, and I couldn't -- wouldn't! -- do it without each and every one of you!

I hope you all have a wonderful whatever-it-is-you-celebrate-this-time-of-the-year. I love you all!

Here and here and here and here and here.

I want to start doing this every weekend. Let's take over the front page! "Dtoid Community Weekends." Help me make it happen.

Go create something beautiful. Or awful. Or hilarious. Or insightful. I don't care what. Just go create.

Have I missed something of yours recently? I couldn't be more sorry. Please never hesitate to email me a link; you'd be surprised how many blogs hit the front page just because someone bugged me about them.

That's all.
