So... Might as well post something since I are new and all. Well, sort of anyways. Lurker turned poster here, so, um, yeah!

Call me Blu or Em, I don't care either way. I live in BFE Michigan, but have plans to move out to Canada because the USA is scaring me right now. :lol: I'm going to be 19 in less than a month, I'm a huge fucking nerd/outcast/oddball and I am not ashamed! I am also le femme, if you couldn't tell by the speech patterns. Err.. I don't have any interesting life stories, since not too much goes on in my bittersweet existance, but my LJ link is in my sig if you care. :roll:

I'll pull a podcast, and tell you all that I'm playing the Final Fantasy series. Not in any particular order, but I'm playing through FFIII, FFIV, FFVII, FFVIII, & FFXII. Aside from an ass-ton of roman numerals, I'm also playing Oblivion, Lost Planet, Sims2, GTA: San Andreas, and a little bit of WoW on the side.

I use windows XP on my main computer, upgraded only a few years ago from windows 97. Yes, my desktop is ancient. It doesn't even have a brand name on the cover. :lol: I also use windows 7 on my netbook, but I kind of want to change the OS to Mac. I know someone though my aunt who's son converted his netbook to support the Mac system, and I wanna figure out how, because I like learning how both work (and because then I can watch LRR videos with quicktime without having 100 pop-ups telling me to update it all the time) and because I'm not really biased towards any one operating system.

I found the LRR group after a friend sent me a Zero Punctuation video and I ended up watching them all. Including the crossover one. And that's how I found out about Unskippable. Which, in turn, lead me to here, the fabulous Commodore64-style website with hilarious videos, podcasts, and of course, epic t-shirts. Of which I have bought 3. :mrgreen:

Um... I think I've said enough? Too much maybe? We'll see. I'll just keep it cool listening to Paul's epic rap song. 8)

LOL totally not Emma. Sorry, always hated that nickname. Emily's my full name, but we'll just stick with Blu.

Well, nice to meet you too, Dan. C:

Hello, my name is Albert, I'm 28 years young, and I like snakes. I'm terrible at formal introductions, so I'll try my best to share a bit of info about myself.

I go by Al, sometimes Albee, which my sisters gave me that nickname because when I was in elementary school, I used to catch honey bees with my hands and show my sisters. Granted that the stinging was more an annoyance than painful, it didn't stop me from trying to catch a fuzzy bumblebee. Bad idea! From that point on, I have a slight phobia of buzzing insects.

But, even though they kinda buzz with their wings, I still find beetles pretty awesome!

So...besides that fun fact about myself, I live in Southern California, USA, employed by a major telecommunications company, and I play a moderate amount of video games. Although, I must admit that for a majority of my time, WoW has preoccupied my game time. When I'm not playing WoW, I sit back on my PS3 and indulge in MvC3 and a few interesting downloadable games I discovered on PSN.

Lastly, I was introduced to the awesomeness of LRR by my awesome friend, Juliamon. So, at least I won't be alone when together we'll be geeking out at PAX East!

Thats it for me, delighted to make your acquaintance!
I am SpaceCore! But when I'm not SpaceCore, I'm just AL.

Hi!

I'm Christopher. I'm 24 and I live in Morgantown, WV.

I play guitar a lot.

A few days ago, my roommate and I were making fried chicken for dinner. We cook a lot. Anyway, so... we let the skillet get too hot, I guess, and the oil burst into flames. Being without a fire extinguisher or any knowledge beyond "don't put water on it," I grabbed the thing and ran it outside. Now I have second-degree burns on my hands. Then I contracted the flu. A real winning week.

Needless to say, I... will not be playing guitar for a few days.

Anyway, pleased to meet everyone!

At the LRR fan meet-up on Saturday at PAX East, I was deeply ashamed of never having registered on the LRR forums. My feeble attempt at an introduction with a Twitter handle just seemed so bland and hollow, so in an attempt to rectify that, hello!

My name is Patrick; I'm 31 and I live about 20 miles outside of Boston, MA - feel free to call me that or abbreviate my far-too-long handle to "Seris". I have a pretty typical white-collar job, except for the part where I'm really bad at hiding that I'm a giant nerd and have this on a shelf in my cubicle.

In addition to gaming and collecting ridiculously detailed Persona figurines, I enjoy cooking and spent a few years of my life in Ireland studying medieval Irish history. I live with my fiancee, Erika (who got me interested in LRR at the first place), and a cat named Irving.

PAX East was awesome, and I look forward to hanging out here!
I am so bad at updating Twitter, why is this link even here?

Howdy, Greg here.

I've met with the guys behind LRR at PAX East for the past two events and until now have never once thought "They're pretty cool guys, maybe I should join their forum"

So here I am!

I'm 22, live in the Greater Toronto Area, and have a furious fascination with cars. My idea of a fun weekend is flipping a rusty car onto it's side to yank everything out from underneath it, and then putting it all into the body of a not-so-rusty shell, all in order to make one decent car out of two.

Despite my largely un-geeky interests, I am still very much a geek at heart. I play video games, watch anime, laugh at funny internet videos whenever I have the time and whenever any one of my old Toyota's isn't broken.

I look forward to hanging out with you guys on the forums!

Hello! I'm in the same boat as the other two new guys. I was playing Magic on sunday with you guys and realized I should register. So...I did. I'm Dylan, I seem to be younger then most of you at the age of 18. I was the longer haired blonde kid who brought up the idea to play pentagram format MtG. Besides that other random info about me is I live in the "great" state of New Hampshire among the trees and play Magic and League of Legends and watch anime and LRR to keep me sane. That's about it.

*peeks in*

So... this is the LoadingReadyRun forum.

... I like it.

Name's Charles (omg real name on internetz!!!1), and I've been watching the videos on the Escapist for the longest damn time, plus I watched as much of Desert Bus as I possibly could (to help kids... and see Kathleen do the Caramelldansen). PAX East made me feel inadequate for not knowing about Iron Stomach and commodoreHUSTLE, so... here I am.

I DARE YOU TO INTERVIEW ME!
