Community Interviews: The Way Things Usedtabe

   0
Welcome to the second entry in the Community Interviews series!

You'll notice a slight tinge of formulaic formatting throughout these interviews as you read through them, and that is that there are repeated questions that every person must answer.  The reason for this is simple: those questions are what form the foundation of the interview.  Once those questions have been answered, other questions are asked that are tailored to respond to the answers given.  What you will be reading is the end result, conversationally compiled.

Without further ado, let's get started.

He's thirty-one.  He's a father of a four-year old that loves being adorable and attempting to kill squirrels with rocks.  He took the same path to Destructoid citizenship as he did with his wife - lurk and stalk for a few months, then jump in and never leave.  He's been here since 2006, and is one of the longest standing active members of the community.  He works with medical billing, and helps in getting people financially covered for things that insurance doesn't catch.  He is Destructoid's Lord Of The Gym And Protein And Shit.  And when he has a cold drink in his living room, he doesn't want to see it resting on the floor - he wants you show some damn class and USE DA TABLE.

Same as the previous interview, I sent him a questionnaire, he answered the stuff on it, I asked him questions about his answers, blah blah.  And I gotta say - he's living proof that brains and brawn can coexist harmoniously.

Give a warm welcome to our very own Usedtabe.




One last question: Who do you think you are?

An enigma playing a role.  Sometimes the role changes.

About Everyday Legendone of us since 1:32 PM on 08.24.2009





I am the Everyday Legend, and I am a male, 31-year old Florida native and videogame fan of the most epicurean order. I'm also the father of a very precocious (almost) three-year-old daughter, and a newborn daughter as well!

My natural state: very, very tired.

I got into gaming when I was 5, and my Aunt and Uncle had an NES that they had bought because they thought it was the coolest thing ever. As a matter of fact, they weren't too far off of the mark. I was introduced to Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt (naturally), and soon followed up with the very first Zelda. I remember the very first game I beat by myself - Megaman 2, in 1989. I was six at the time.

Shortly after that, I played Street Fighter II for the first time in a local skating rink and was hooked. Bad. Like, smack-habit bad.

I remember playing against the college kids that would come in there to hang out and chill - there was a lounge connected to the place that you had to be 18 to get in - and a lot of these guys used to come in and spend a ton of time and money on playing SFII. I learned how to play from these guys, and within a year, I had become just as good as they were. I was hanging out with people almost twice my age, and conversing with them on their level about a mutual passion - and that's where I've been ever since.

Videogames don't make up my entire life: I cook, I write, I sing, I have a full-time career in IT and am still attending college for a degree in Computer Science, then moving into a Masters in Information Systems Management. Gotta have goals.

Nothing beats a good trip to a good bar where they serve good beer and have a good selection of good tunes. Also, chilled Junmai Ginjo (unfiltered) sake is the nectar of the gods, in case you weren't aware. Of course, those trips are very rare these days, because there is always another diaper to change, and leaving your kid at home in the crib is never an option if you want to be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

Oh, and I really, really love sushi. I can put away amounts of that stuff that some may label as borderline genocidal. I put species of fish on the endangered list singlehandedly. I'm not ashamed. It's their own fault for being born so damn delicious.
