I'm a musician and a gamer. I also make music for games.

My favorite RPG ever is Earthbound, and my favorite song in that game is the final battle theme.
My favorite musicians are Mr. Bungle. Then Radiohead. Then Tom Waits. Jamiroquai.
I love tapioca and I hate creamed corn.
I like Taoism.
You can find my music if you google "Melodious Punk" because that's what I call myself when I'm making music.

You can catch me on PSN as snoogans775, I play Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

I have been a big fan of Destructoid for a while, and I've posted a few cod-brained blogs here and there, but it's about time you (you) and I (me) were introduced. Because I've enjoyed these types of introductions so much, I figure it's time you learned a few salty secrets about myself as well. So without further ado...

1. I am the director of an orchestra that plays video game music

It is called the Reno Video Game Symphony. Reno, Nevada, USA is my hometown and I've played music here for years, more on that later. The group has more than 25 members and I arrange a lot of Mega Man music because we have a great sax section, but I have a particular fondness for our small ensemble that is composed of 10 members periodically auditioned from the constantly changing orchestra. Here's a link to a video of us playing some music from Secret of Mana. I'm the guy with the guitar.


2. I love Mr. Bungle

I just really love that band. They released 3 albums and some early EPs. They play music that is like a bipolar chimpanzee reciting the entire contents of the library of congress. It's nuts. The last song on their album Disco Volante is similar to "Pokey Means Business" from Earthbound.

3. Earthbound is Great, so is Mother 3

This has nothing to do with me, and it's true. It's just there, like a beetle in your mind-tub. It's probably something you already know, but it is a nice reprieve from this list.

4. I have been on Destructoid for more than 3 years. In fact...

I joined this site back when Anthony Burch was making Rev Rants. My favorite moments from this site have been: Jim Sterling's "Peaches", Burch's proposal to Davis, Ekans, and when I won a PS3.

5. I won a PS3

It's not gloating because it broke. It was stuck in an update loop. I am sad again now.

I won it with this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzZeUmHoTv4

6. I live with a murderous, adorable, spoiled little cat

Revel in his glory, REVEL!
