Call for entries: Make your quote appear on Destructoid's header

As you've probably noticed we've changed the home page design quite a bit today! I hope you like the changes and find the site faster and easier to use. We also completely redid the "compact" view and console pages so that they're easier to read and skim through -- please give those a look-see. We still have many speed optimizations to do but we're making good progress despite being drunk and hung over from holiday cheer :)

Anyway, let's talk about the quotes thing! One of the most requested features was to bring back the random quotes, which once appeared in the user profiles page. We found a way to make it work and brought it back -- and are looking for new submissions! Here's the format to follow:

Please follow this strict format when submitting your quotes or you'll ruin everything forever and die alone:

"is a playable character in Bomberman Live",
"wants to have you over for sexy times",

* Starts with a quote
* Begins with a verb that refers to Destructoid
* Starts with a lower case letter, you hookers!
* ends with a quote and comma
* is not longer than any of these bullet phrases

Send in as many as you'd like and I'll install them next week. Do each one on its own line please, as many as you'd like in a comment. Please keep them moderately SFW although they're only visible to registered users so we can get away with a little murder :)

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Papa Nieroone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I've been writing about video games on Destructoid for almost 12 years. It would be insane to stop now. I do a lot of stuff behind the scenes here, but mostly my job is to keep Destructoid weird.

Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I've been to Japan a dozen times. Tokyo's my favorite place, ever. Good food, good people.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it.

Until then, here's a photo of me doing the nightly site backups of the community blogs:
