Well, I hope that I don't get banned by dtoid for not posting a game-related blog. Hell, this isn't even a blog, period. (<-- periods followed by a period fascinate the hell out of me...). Anywho, welcome. I figured it was time to get this shit under way. My name is Nathan, but i go by pappadukes, because 1:) I am a new father, and 2:) because I wear "daisy-dukes" when I have enough liquor in me to tranquilize a horse. Hence, "pappadukes". (The extra "p" is for another post altogether. C-blog usage guidelines currently prohibits me from explaining further).
Call me sick, depraved, or insecure. I really don't care, which you can see illustrated below:

wait, wrong picture... THIS is a picture of me not caring, because I'm drinking beer.

So, I lied earlier when I stated that this "post" (NOT blog) would have no relation to video games whatsoever. I am sorry. I couldn't truly capture my "essence" without delving into video games just a little.

I am 30 years of age, which means that I grew up on video games. The earliest being the Texas Instruments and Commodore 64. I also had almost every incarnation of the Atari "console" they could shit out (2600, 5200, 7800). But I can't say that I really got into video games until I got the obligatory Nintendo Entertainment System as is the case with most (if not all) 30-somethings. I became a junkie. From that point on I slowly began experimenting. Any new system that came out, I had to have. Genesis, SNES, Sega Saturn, Sega CD, Sega 32x, Jaguar, Sony Plastation, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, XBOX, Playstation2, Wii, Playstation 3. And that's just consoles. You HAD to have a Gameboy if you didn't want to be called a "poser" back in my day. And I'm not talking about your fancy "Gameboy Color"; I'm talking about the "jaundiced" yellow and black OG Gameboy. Not only was I able to immerse myself in video games in the comfort of my own home, now I could bring my addiction with me, wherever i went. It was absolutely amazing to be alive!
But I can safely say that the Gameboy was about as crazy as I got with the handhelds (Color, Advance, and SP). I did own a PSP at one time, but ironically I sold it so that I could afford a 80 gig PS3 (absolutely fucking worth it, if you ask me.)
Well, that's it for me at the moment. I thought I would just give this C-blog a test drive, see how I liked it. Seems to handle pretty well, although, I did notice some drifting, when I took my hands off the wheel. And I think the previous owner let her cat urinate all over the bucket seats...
