People Who Ended Up Looking Different Than I Imagined

About a week ago, I really got into listening to podcasts that had something to do with this site. I started with The Electric Hydra, then I went back to Podtoid to see what I missed. Soon after, I branched out into sister podcasts Tomocast, Japanator AM, and HAWPcast.

One thing I started to do was envision certain physical traits from the way that certain people talked. The members with more distinguishable voices and methods of speaking soon formed an appearance in my head that was mostly derived from how they spoke.

This week, I finally stumbled upon a picture of Brad Nicholson, and frankly, I was shocked. He looked nothing how I imagined him. This then led me to further investigate other members' appearances, which led to the revelation: None of these people looked like how I imagined.

To start off: Brad Nicholson

The man who jump started my investigation. It started when I was began an account on Twitter, and began following various members of Destructoid and stuff, and started following nicholsonb. I saw his picture for his profile, and was floored.

Yeah, I imagined a british accented Andy Milonakis. I think it was kinda accurate, right...?

There were other TEH and podcast crew members that ended up being shockingly different from what I imagined, but the ones I covered above are who I think evoked imagery of their physical appearance- strictly from their voice- the most....

So what I can detract from this investigation is that, not only can you not judge a book by it's cover, now you can't judge a book on tape by the person doing the recording...or something rather...

I'm sure there are plenty of you who had certain ways you imagined people looked before you saw them, right? I mean there are plenty of people here on the c-blogs who I have fairly vivid images of how they look(ed).

Now I will never try to cling to images of people because I found that I have a terrible imagination that has me imagine people as celebrities they actually look nothing like

I can't resist an oppurtunity to write about myself. I'm a fungi and I don't like to party. I prefer a cool damp place to chill in cuz I'm cool and damp. You can find me just vegetating in my house which is actually my parents' house. Having no income other than government reparation checks, I figured crashing with my old man and old lady will help alleviate the pressures of their life as they near twilight. I never get out and I don't plan on doing so in the near future. I thought this place could use some good looking me grace the c-blogs, having spent the last decade or so modeling for big corporations pro bono. I actually discovered Destructoid through reccomendations from one of my many fans.

If you can see my recently posted header, I'm a 69 years old Polynesian man living vicariously through the internet. After retiring from the drug game, I decided to lay low and assume a more humble lifestyle as to avoid cops. As a result, I came across this cave where nuclear scientists created an electronic tennis game from an oscilloscope. I've secretly followed the world of video games ever since then.

I didn't actually play any vidja games with my hands until 1997, having been imprisoned since the '40s by the U.S. government for stumbling onto their nuclear science project all those years ago. It was a Super Nintendo, and I played Super Mario World until the cartridge would bleed. To cut it some slack, I also played Super Mario All-Stars, Pinocchio, Super Street Fighter II, Extra Innings, and Donkey Kong Country 2.

I progressively continued playing Nintendo stuff because the world of war and corrupt state prison had made me a peaceful man, and I did not favor the more mature, violent alternative systems. Fast-forward to 2007 when I discovered Destructoid after the Nintendo forums were shut down. I've been watching you closely and have come to care for your community of intelligents and rogue thugs, so I decided to share my story with all of you- something I've never shared with a member of the animal kingdom with the ability to talk.

Hope I see you around, and you comment on my stuff, cuz it's like crack to me when I read somebody's input on my ramblings ;(
