Hey, Destructoid. Long time listener, first time caller.
I almost posted everything in my "about me" sidebar into a blog until I realized it was boring. Read it if you suffer from insomnia.
I (generally, with few exceptions) love all music, movies, television, art, graphic novels, literature, and video games. Because of this expansive love, I don't like using Top ____ lists (which I've found to be a staple of, well, everything). Is it because quantifying enjoyment is really hard, or maybe because info-overload has subconsciously made humans hungry not for prose, but bullet points? I will say my favorite band has to be The Flaming Lips. But even that is up to discussion. I can also say my most recent favs are Funny People (movie), The Mighty Boosh (TV), and Pax Romana (Graphic Novel).
I've recently been playing Mass Effect 2 (surprise), Castle Crashers, FIFA 10, and Beatles: Rock Band. Over the past few months I've fallen in love with Anthony Burch's "Rev Rant"s. I've made the "video games are art" argument dozens of times to friends, family, and one stranger, and to see quality video game criticism only further legitimizes my argument. He's also got me thinking a lot more about the current state and future of video games, and my thoughts will surely be posted here soon.
So this is my blog. Thank you, Dtoid community, for being awesome.
