My English Teacher is a Nintendo Fanboy

Here I am, an aide for my english teacher.

He is teaching a college compostion class at the moment.

His classes can be incredibly boring...but they can also be incredibly NOT boring.

His redeeming quality is being a hardcore nerd. This guy is into comic books, medieval culture, ebay, digg, and of course video games. And trust me, I would not even imagine being his aide if he wasn't the way he is. Overall, he is a very nice man, approaching middle-age with a very solid and happy family life. He is an incredibly eccentric teacher and likes to include allll formats of media into his classroom.

For example:

Watching classic Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock episodes and doing various activities relating to english with them.

Watching various movies, some violent, some very cult classic, and some very indie then doing various english activities based on them as well.

But...my favorite thing about his class...is when he pops out the Wii and we all get crazy on Guitar Hero, WarioWare, SMGalaxy, Wii Sports, or some of the good old classics. He's even talking about buying a 360 and bringing it in to play.

Of course we have to write about it afterwards, but its always worth it.

Its because of this man that gaming as a whole has become a lot less about being nerdy, and more about being a legitimate activity for FUN.

Everyone talks about them now...jocks, preps, nerds(duh), everyone accepts games! I'm never afraid to talk out loud to my buddy about kicking some ass on COD4, or how god damn frustrating Viewtiful Joe is making me.

I guess what I'm trying to really say is (and this doesn't apply to everyone)...


If you let everyone know, then you might find some unexpected friends...I gained a couple gamertags after the whole "coming out" thing... LOLZ GAY JOKE.

Also, you can use them to borrow games you would otherwise be too poor to afford.

It may be heartless, but its also smart. :)

About nukka jdavone of us since 5:51 PM on 12.06.2007

About Me:

Hey there, I'm James. I'm originally from Deer Lodge, MT, but now I'm going to school in Missoula for TEACHING. Yeah, I kind of changed my mind. I was doing the journalism thing, but kind of had a weird epiphany about the whole thing. Teaching was what I wanted to do before journalism and after some hard thought I'm going to return to it. I figure becoming an english teacher will allow me to continue writing. That blogging dream will still be there, It just won't be priority.

I'm very into music, especially Modest Mouse and Animal Collective. Classic rock makes my genitals burst as well. My life is simple: School, my lady, friends, family, dogs, and games. Easy peasy, no? I've been around Dtoid for a while, lurking since the beginning, and registered a while ago. I love it here, having such a good community really does the place well. I'm into any game that doesn't suck. There is really very little I'm not willing to play. The only problem is time, but please recommend good games to me. I've been on an indie binge recently, so start there. Feel free to add my PSN and Gamertag to your friends lists. I'm a nice dude and love playing with Dtoiders. You guys are amazing.

I blow at fighters, this is just the only cool looking picture I've ever taken.

The Unshaven - a dodgeball movie that probably won't be funny to you that my friends and I all made as a parting senior thingy. Anyway, if you wanna see me in action I'm the chubby one playing The Lion King on my Sega. (Major credit to Daniel Lombardi)

My Youtube Channel - nothing too special on there, just some videos from a longgg time ago and a few I made from boredom.
