Pic unrelated, as always.... Anyways, I just wanted to take a minute to make my own little "Happy Birthday" cblog, so here I go
Niero, I dont think I could ever thank you enough for Destructoid. I can think of so many ways Dtoid has affected me, I thought I'd just list a few of them:
Without Dtoid, I would actually get things done at work, which of course would go against everything government employees stand for. Seriously, we're a lazy ass bunch.
This afternoon, a group of people are coming over to my place to play Brawl... people I met on Destructoid. Without Dtoid, I never would have met these awesome Portlanders, and the greatest Rock Band band of all time, Pacific Dick, would not exist.
I never would have gone to PAX '07, one of the most fun vacations I have ever taken. I wouldn't have met all of you motherfuckers in persons, and I wouldnt already be saving up money and vacation time so that I can to go to PAX '08.
There would be no Failcast (I know, I know, shameless plug). Doing a podcast has always been something I wanted to do, and I couldnt think of a better way to spend my Tuesday nights then talking with other Dtoiders about the community we all love.
The last 2 years have been fucking awesome, and I can't wait to see whats next in the life and times of destructoid.com. It amazes me how much the site has changed since I first discovered Dtoid (ironically, from a post on Kotaku). Of course, I also have to give mad props to the editors and people in the background. You guys have made the site what is today, oozing with win and awesome.
Here's to another year of epic win! And now, the first pic that shows up in Google Images when you type in Destructoid:
