Hey there, I'm James. I'm originally from Deer Lodge, MT, but now I'm going to school in Missoula for TEACHING. Yeah, I kind of changed my mind. I was doing the journalism thing, but kind of had a weird epiphany about the whole thing. Teaching was what I wanted to do before journalism and after some hard thought I'm going to return to it. I figure becoming an english teacher will allow me to continue writing. That blogging dream will still be there, It just won't be priority.
I'm very into music, especially Modest Mouse and Animal Collective. Classic rock makes my genitals burst as well. My life is simple: School, my lady, friends, family, dogs, and games. Easy peasy, no? I've been around Dtoid for a while, lurking since the beginning, and registered a while ago. I love it here, having such a good community really does the place well. I'm into any game that doesn't suck. There is really very little I'm not willing to play. The only problem is time, but please recommend good games to me. I've been on an indie binge recently, so start there. Feel free to add my PSN and Gamertag to your friends lists. I'm a nice dude and love playing with Dtoiders. You guys are amazing.
I blow at fighters, this is just the only cool looking picture I've ever taken.

The Unshaven - a dodgeball movie that probably won't be funny to you that my friends and I all made as a parting senior thingy. Anyway, if you wanna see me in action I'm the chubby one playing The Lion King on my Sega. (Major credit to Daniel Lombardi)
My Youtube Channel - nothing too special on there, just some videos from a longgg time ago and a few I made from boredom.
Tonight the three boys (Armando, Gary, Xavier) and one man (me) will talk via Skype. Using modern recording technology we will save this call and distribute it to you, the masses. One problem though. We need to hook the listeners. We need to get your attention. We need to not talk about Pokemon ever again or my girlfriend will probably leave me. How do we solve this diabolical debacle (HAR)?
Talk about HALF-LIFEEEEEEEEE!!!! The best game ever made besides all the other best games ever made!
We're going to tackle Valve's unique approach to the FPS genre (and take it behind the shed), deploring it publicly and live in a non-live kind of way, but if I've learned anything about public deploring behind the shed, it's that holding down a grown man requires teamwork.
So help us out, give us questions. This is kind of a shot in the dark, but sometimes, no matter how hopeless things are, you have to take a Cblog post by the balls and say, "Fuck it, lets ask for listener questions."
