Happy birthday to G4 TV's Zach Selwyn

11:05 AM on 04.23.2007 // NO LONGER WORKS AT DESTRUCTOID

Look, I drink...

...and from time to time I have the luck of meeting some great people in the industry. Aside from my chance meeting with Jesus at a bar in Denver, Zach Selwyn is one of the nicest people I have met yet. We got a chance to hang out with him in Austin at SXSW and from what I remember... well, from the pictures, it looked like a blast. A special Dtoid happy birthday goes out to him today. More on Zach after the jump...

 A lot of you may not know that Zach is a little more diverse than just the world of G4. Did you know that Zach is also a really talented musician? His group Zachariah  and the Lobos Riders has a new album about out entitled "Alcoholiday" that is listed as, "Outlaw Country Rock with a burst of early 1970's psychedelic Desert cosmic imagery." Now, I may not have any idea what that means, but I do have the album, and I must say that it has grown on me quickly. If you like what you hear and want to buy it, be sure to check out this link.

His talent and history goes even deeper than that. Here is a short blurb that I copy and pasted from his MySpace page because I don't have the talent of Rob "Loose Cannon" Summa, or the smarts of one Nex "Insert witty comment here" Cavalli.

Zach Selwyn has enjoyed a unique and diverse career trajectory in this town of Hollywood, California. He has been in numerous films and television shows, but gained notoriety as the runner-up to ESPN's DREAM JOB show in 2004. Considered "The most talented contestant" by America and ESPN, he took his talents to "Extreme Dodgeball," "Around the Horn," a new ESPN pilot called "Holla Back" and shows for Bravo and Discovery Channel. Recently, Zach has joined the popular G4 show "Attack of the Show" and he is looking forward to traveling the world submitting field pieces that feature his own brand of humor, talent and originality.

Now you know. According to G.I. Joe, that is half the battle.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

Reading the Star Citizen expose reminded me of the whole Firefall mess last year. [url=""]Found the gamefront article [/url]

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]
