Apparently I'm a gamer -- hence being here. I've had the Donkey Kong theme stuck in my head since about 1995. It's not as cool as it sounds. It's kind of like hiccuping for that many years.
I'm pretty much a deadbeat Liberal Arts graduate from U of Illinois -- uhm Springfield campus. Started off as a computer science major and switched to English Literature. Why? Because I'm an idiot and I'm still looking for the job that made the switch worth the time and money. I did take a year of Elementary Japanese, so maybe I can BS a translation job. But only if I'm talking to school children. How insulting -- "your understanding of the language is that of a retarded kid!" So I guess that skill only comes in handy for catching one out of four words in any anime I watch and a good laugh when people mispronounce words.
Just finally in August joined the high-falooting "next-gen" with a purchase of the 60gb 360. I always said if a Tales game came to the 360, I'd finally buy the damn thing. Had to eat my words but I'm enjoying it so far.
Systems own: N64, Dreamcast, DS (x2), PSP (x2), 360 (finally), Wii, PS2, and a TG-16 (unfortunately not working)
Apparently I'm a huge Tales of fan -- hence getting the 360 for Vesperia and my Klarth avatar when I signed up. But Repede's too awesome to pass up.
Currently playing: Tales of Vesperia, Viva Pinata, Soul Calibur 4, Final Fantasy IV DS, Mana Khemia, Out of the Park Baseball 9, Sam and Max Season 2 (yeah finally got around to that), Downstream Paniac
INTRODUCTION POSTS (if you're looking for even more about me)
yeah I know there's not too many hockey fans on this place, or fans of Canadian Junior Hockey but that's just hilarous. I almost fell out of the chair when it happened.
To Spokane's credit they played amazing and Dustin Tokarski's draft stock has just shot up a couple rounds. 53 saves. Not bad for a kid that was on no one's radar before the season really. They beat Kitchner twice in Kitchner's own building. That alone deserves the title.
And man, it's a 90 year old championship. It's not the first time it's been broken or banged up -- but this is the first time since YouTube's been popular. Sorry, Burton. You're forever captured.
