I Don't like pangtongshu!

=D

what was the cause/reason for this disliking?

*looks at thread title*
That's referring to what I made! =D

XD

Anyways, I started watching Avatar: the Last Airbender after I saw a commercial for it when I was seven. At that age, my parents had to preview everything I watched. The day after it premiered, I got to watch it and fell in love with it (even though season one wasn't the best).

500th post! Small achievement, but whatever.

I remember listening to the Helplessness Blues album by Fleet Foxes on my way to a friend's house to watch Sweeney Todd. I've never really been a fan of horror, especially blood. Well, if you've ever seen Sweeney Todd, you probably know there's lots of blood and death and hyperrealistic blood... (heheh.) Ever since then, the song Battery Kinzie from that album has had a sense of fear and tension whilst I listen, despite my attempts to enjoy the tune, even as blood does not both me nearly as much anymore.

hyperrealistic blood...

Like in this?

Everything is a progression of cause and effect, if I hadn't decided I wanted online saves for I THINK Raze 2, I wouldn't have made an account and I never would have gone here and met all you peeps and then later go over to Sky9 and meet dem peeps.

You may enjoy this, as it's the odd path I took to working for Armor:

-Went on a trip to Israel with a good friend after my freshman year of college.
-Met a girl on the trip who liked playing DDR.  Started dating.
-Remembered seeing this online-DDR website called flashflashrevolution.com and decided to try it out to get into something my new lady friend enjoyed.
-Really got into the online-DDR thing, to the point where they offered me a job after I got out of college (in 2006).
-Did that for a few years, but also really got into this flash game site called Kongregate at the same time.
-Wanted to give back to the Kong community...  and did that by making videos on YouTube showing how to get various badges.
-Girl, who I was still dating, decided to move to California...  I moved with her.
-My videos on how to get Kong badges became popular, the online-DDR site started having issues, and the YouTube partner program came out.  Started making money from making videos.
-Got a message on YouTube from John Cooney and Dan McNeely about a video I made for Achievement Unlocked (the original one).  I took that as an opportunity to drive to Irvine and meet with them in person.
-Made videos, did testing work, and designed a game or 3 with Dan and John on an as-needed basis for a few years.
-The YouTube business started to die off a bit, but Dan decided to be awesome and turn "as-needed" into "all-the-time"... and I've now been working for Armor for over a year.

All because I met a girl in Israel back in 2003.

That song/album must mold to what people are doing at the time. I was reading a book series (now my favorite) while discovering the Fleet Foxes. Now I have nostalgic flashbacks of those books whenever I listen to that album.

Lackluster stories are lackluster.
