Introduce yourselves!

Sep 10, '17, 12:24pm

Hi everyone.

I'm Dan. I'm from IL. My wife and I are long time KF fans. We stretch all the way back to the IGN Gregway days. I've actually fallen off watching and listening to the guys since Colin left. The reason I'm here is pretty specific. My wife/best friend of 15 years passed away 12 weeks ago. To be honest, I'm struggling pretty badly. I've lost touch with most of my friends and family as I've sunk into grief pretty deeply. As I sat here all alone today, I realized how painfully lonely I am and remembered how friendly this community has always been. Right now I just need some people to talk to every once in awhile. Hoped I could find that here. Sorry if I bum anyone out with this. Just didn't know where else to turn.

Where I got my gamer tag/tags: My gamer tag is PheelyksArtifex, and I pretty much just bastardized the English language in order to find an alternative way to write "Felix" and have it sound the same, because writing it normally seemed boring and I wanted to be cool and hip.

Hey Best Friends,

My name is Christopher and I've been a close follower of Kinda Funny since about the time they left IGN. Although I am an avid consumer of their content and frequently watch their live streams I have never been able to feel like a member of the community because I have always stayed quiet in the background. I now wish for that to change. I struggle with Social Anxiety Disorder so I have never had many friends, in fact, I don't think I currently have more than maybe one. After so long of not being able to make friends or have a social life, I had kind of gotten used to being alone. However, recently I've been hit with a wave of loneliness that has made me pretty depressed. And so, that is why I have decided to finally introduce myself in the forums after years of quietly lurking in the background. If anyone wants to talk, I am in desperate need of a conversation partner. My handle on twitter, instagram, and snapchat is: cmatbola. Feel free to hmu. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hope you're having a great time. :)

What do you do all day when not watching Kinda Funny: I work in insurance/investments.
What games are you gaming: PS4 - Destiny2 and Lego Marvelheres (w/ my son). 3DS - Pokemon Sun
Where I got my gamer tag/tags: First, some back story. My OG gamer tag on PS3 was RibbedForHerPleasure. I thought it would be good for a laugh, which is was at first, but lead to numerous annoying messages. I was starting to get tired of it, so I decided as I had no games purchased under that account, and only one major online game played (COD: MW2), it was a good time to switch it up when I switched to a new online game (COD Blops).
The problem then became two-fold. 1. I'm not very creative, especially with names, and 2. The number of players on PSN. After many failed attempts at a new name a thought crossed my mind. Some friends and I had just watched True Lies (one of the greatest actions movies of all time!) the night I decided to change my PSN name, and we all thought that CrimsonJihad (the name of the group Arnie takes down in the movie) would be a solid choice. As CrimsonJihad was taken (duh!) we all racked our brains for minutes before one of us (I forget who) realized Scarlett is a shade of red, just like Crimson! The rest, as they say, is history.
While we all thought the choice was great, my friends and I failed to realize a few key factors at the time. Mostly how few people would make the connection to the group in the movie (that many have probably never seen), and how ignorant some people can be. Fortunately it's rarely (if ever) been an issue since I stopped playing COD games. That said, given the current social climate, there is a part of me that would love the chance to change it.
So that's the story of how I got my gamer tag.

TL;DR: I replaced a really bad PSN name with one based off of a group in True Lies and now I kind of regret it (but it's still better than my original one!)..

What do you do all day when not watching Kinda Funny: I'm just starting to work out of being a workaholic, so hobbies are kind of new to me. I tend to play games (duh), cook, and read. I try to write sometimes, but I'm super rusty and don't really like anything I've produced lately. I also do a lot of book editing and design. I found this through a recommendation from an ally (Easy Allies) and I just started listening to Whats Good Games, too.

What games are you gaming: PS4, I'm working towards a platinum on Night in the Woods, and I'm looking to play through an Indie title a month with a bigger game to sort of balance it out. My person and I (recently officially engaged!) are working very slowly through Yoshi's Wooly World.

Sidenotes: I wrote my master's thesis on video game and film adaptation, specifically related to the relationship between genre development and transmedial adaptation using the Silent Hill video game and film franchises as my main texts (because there's too many Resident Evil and I'm saving that for my doctorate!).

Where I got my gamer tag/tags: Aclexic, which is a sort of riff on eclectic because I have this tendency to just sort of enjoy a lot of things without necessarily getting super buried in them, so I do a little bit of everything.
PSN Tag: Aclexic

How I got my gamertag:
My last name is Cox so my buddy kept call me Lindsay loves as a nickname and then add the Cox at the end cuz I'm a lesbian so it makes it even more hilarious.

What do you do all day when not watching Kinda Funny: Well I listen while I am at work, I work in a warehouse pulling orders for high end clients (FYI: the uglier an item is the more money it is.)so I am usually a day behind on the show.

How I got my gamertag: Dam that's a long story so I'll sum it up back in the 90's I played D&D and my character's name was Dravin Skullkrusher and had a sword with a dragon tooth hilt called Dravin's Claw so fast forward to 2003 when I started to play online with Medal of Honor:Allied Assault and DravinsClaw wouldn't fit so I dropped the S and boom here I am.

Hey,

Im Rob Turner, I have an awesome kid Ethan age 6 who is making his own Minecraft youtube videos, currently making redstone contraptions like elevators and canons, He was watching youtube kids and one day says daddy, I want to be a youtuber so I setup spectrumgamer.com and having lots of fun making videos, I do it mainly for him, if anyone likes them thats just a bonus, He has been connecting with EthanGamer in the UK allot too. Oh, he is on the Autism spectrum, got intervention at a real early age and he is doing so well most people don't even know.

I also work for a web hosting company called islandhosting.com, I have robertjturner.com, Crazy As a Bag of Hammers at http://caaboh.me which I have made an image humor site, any images appear at 100% width in the posting area and I have tuned the site to randomly repost old posts as well as bulk upload and post funny images. I just spend an hour a week collecting images in a folder, naming them what I want toe posts to be and then using a bulk uploader plugin that created posts as drafts and then I use a draft random posting plugin that schedules all my posts fir the coming week, pretty low maintenance, I do it for fun too.

I think these things show my creative site, I love to play games but I like to learn too so getting something like caaboh.me going and being pretty self maintaining has been fun. I was toying with a forum section but like the low maintenance aspect of it right now.

I have a wonderful wife Michelle, I like in Victoria BC but originally from Portsmouth in the UK, I met my wife via ICQ, we chatted for a year and then I won 500 pounds on Tombola.com and needed a vacation so I decided to visit Michelle, 2 days later we are engaged! People love that story. ;)


I guess thats it for now. Ask me anything!

Where are you from, I can tell English is probably not your first language, I would guess from your writing style that its Denmark or somewhere in the Nordic countries?

Am I close?

What do you do all day when not watching Kinda Funny: play a few games, drive cars (lol, i say cars like its multiple, its just 1 car, but I occasionally like to test drive the stuff I can't afford), shop, eat, breath, sleep. General humanning. Never feel like I've got enough time because I'm too busy sitting around being bored to do anything?
What games are you gaming: I constantly feel like I'm between games because I can never sit for long periods of time for consecutive amounts of time to feel like i'm gaming, but for S&Gs I'm still mulling through Horizon Zero Dawn with the intention of playing more Overwatch and if I've got time I need to buy Luna.
Where I got my gamer tag/tags: Ish - been a long time, from playing Warhammer 40k, my eldars were named "Zealots of Ishtar" because it sounded cool and looked appropriate. Shortened to Ish. Unfortunately my ex boyfriend made my PSN account so its "My_Bulma" as I'm a big dragonball fan, but unfortunately now saddled with a name that sounds like i belong to someone.

What do you do all day when not watching Kinda Funny: Web Developer - I spend most of my time unbreaking and breaking stuff on websites.
What games are you gaming:
PC: ARK: Survival Evolved, Dragons Dogma, South Park: Stick of Truth, GTA Online
Where I got my gamer tag: Cakewok began when I was in high school and would play Halo 2 during spare periods and lunch. During one of these sessions, my friends and I began the typical trash talk that accompanies multiplayer but instead of calling each other, the most heinous things we could think of we started calling each other cute pet names. Some of the standouts that come to mind are Puddin Pop and Muffin Top. After killing one of my friends, someone said that the kill was a cakewalk and from there the name stuck.

I changed up my gamertag to Cakewok because I love me some North American Chinese Food.
