Matt
25 and rapidly approaching 26

I have actually watched LRR since... lets just say a very long time... I chose (It's Magic) as my first video because it is my favorite.

I am a web developer. Not the fun kind... the kind that has to make things IE 6 compatible.

However, I do some fun stuff for my blog. (nyannet.com)
My twitter is @mattcnt

I am a multi-faceted nerd. My interests include but are not limited too
video games, anime, figures, board games, literature, photography, and martial arts (very close to getting my black belt in Hapkido).

I currently reside in Lincoln, NE and look
forward to escaping someday before it kills me.

It is very nice to meet you all.

Evening.

As the username would suggest, I'm Niko. Real name is Nick, but almost everyone I know is starting to call me Niko - mainly so they can do the whole Roman Bellic "Let's go bowling" thing.

I'm a 19 year old student in Aberdeen, Scotland. I play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and a lot of videogames. I also write a blog about videogames.

I started watching LRR when they first appeared on The Escapist, and haven't stopped watching since.

I figured I should sign up here, since it's a uncommon example of creators actively engaging in their own community, which I think is awesome.

Anyways, I'm hoping to stick around, become quite active, but don't be surprised if I fade away into inactivity.

Hi.

I'm Jason or JD, I use both.

I'm a 31 filing clerk in the Kansas City area... which is about as exciting as you think it is. On the other hand it does occasionally give me the time to write scripts for my own videos, a series of comic book reviews which are definately not up to the standards of LRR, but amuse me for the most part. You can find them at my blog http://jdpresents.blogspot.com and I have a Twitter @jdravnos

I was first exposed to LRR when Unskippable primiered on the Escapist, and I came to this website a month or so after ENN was discontinuted and I was trying to figure out what happened to it. I didn't realize there was quite so many episodes, but I quickly burned through most of what's available in the archive.

I too am a multi-faceted geek. I play WoW, lots of RPGs (both of the electronic and tabletop kind, though less of the latter nowadays), obviously I read a ton of comics, as well as the occasional "non-graphic novel" (i.e. book) and love film and video in all forms (movies, television and online videos like LRR and Channel Awesome) and I'm a huge Doctor Who nerd.

And I think that covers most of everything.

Hi I'm the UglyDuckling,

My real name is Chris. I grew up near Chicago but am currently a grad student in Boston although I'm currently looking for a career change.

I first saw LRR on the Escapist but since then I've watched all the old videos that I missed. I particularly enjoy the commodorehustle videos.

Videos games are my favorite hobby but I have a passion for dancing. I've competed a few times and won 2nd place in a team competition that I helped choreograph. I've been swing dancing the longest but have a few years of salsa, tango, and break dancing too. I'm trying to teach myself poppin' in my free time.

I am the Jollyskull.

I am in Los Angeles, California studing Aerospace Engineering.

My first introduction to LRR comes from G4tv when it first began with 1337. I would not see the Lrr cast for many years until second Desert Bus. After that i would come back to the most recent desert Bus 4 and then I have gone through all the back logs i can find and some of season 1 material.

Thank ye

Stephen Levi O’Neil, a long time watcher of LRR, and derivatives, and listener to the LRRcast. I occasionally lurked the forum, but I never really had anything to say. When I saw something I would have commented on I always decided I shouldn’t bother making account for just that one thing. I just randomly decided to make an account now so that this would stop happening to me. So, hello everybody!

Uh, things about me? While, I guess I am sort of in charge of a podcast between some friends and I, that is mostly just because I’m the guy who gets stuff done. On that note, we have just started to get things done on that project, so if you have an hour with nothing to listen to during, feel free to follow the link to my forums down in my signature!

What kind would you listen to? We try to be funny when we can, and we talk about what we like (or occasionally what we all dislike vehemently). Most of episode one was idle chatter, as we are all very much new to this, but tonight (after Doctor Who of course) we will hopefully record a second podcast, where I we will possibly define our selves a bit better and lay down some sort of plan. I guess as it is we most fit the category of young. geeky, and all too white Canadians!

Sounds pretty much exactly like a podcast I used to run with some friends. Word of advice: keep that shit organised and regular.

Don't succumb to Pod-Fade as we did.

I'll definitely give it a listen, though.

Nope.

Get out.

We've already got one Levi here, and I'm so damn important that middle names aren't allowed, either.

Nope.

I will not have it. I saw what happened to the Tims. It gets too confusing.

Aroint.

(alternatively: do you pronounce it the right way or like the jeans?)

Double-twist: I have gone by Levi for as long as I can remember, I only list it as my middle name still to remind me for when I have to sign things and just because I have always considered going back to Stephen. I would say “like the jeans”, but for all I know I could be pronouncing the brand the wrong-proper way?
You are right! This is very confusing and we haven’t even finished with the greetings yet!

The right way (since I can read hebrew and it's written this way): "Leh-vee"

The jean way (and thus wrong): "Lee-vii"

And CASE RESTED!

Welcome everyone. Do not let Elomin_Sha weird you out too much. Also if you see Lavos, remember that Lavos is Lavos.

Also remember to think before you post. However this should not prevent you from posting completely.Finding a (recent) thread you think you have something interesting to say in and say something in it.
