I will try to introduce myself and this blog with as little fanfare as possible, in the interest of modesty. I am your esteemed lord, master, and consumer of recreational drugs, Johnny Blaze. While I realize this is also the legal name of the Ghost Rider, I use it as a nickname, given to me because of my relaxed confidence and incredible sexual appeal, or because I look like i’m stoned even when im dead sober..
Enough of the theatrics and egotisticalness. I created this blog because of an idea I had with my buddy Myk. We wanted an opportunity to write about a subject we are both passionate about. The idea, at first, was to make videogaming website in the model of IGN, Gamestop etc. Upon further thought, and a bowl or two of some good bud, we realized we had better come up with something unique. I decided having a blog and not a traditional website, would not only be more progressive, but allow the focus to be on the content, not on a constricting and confusing visual layout.
This isn’t a place for you to find every associated press news release about videogames. This is not a place were you will find a review of Barbies Horse Racing. This is not a place where we will mince words, make reviews arbitrarily long (or short), or attempt to write in the boring uncolorful journalistic style of most news media. This blog will not be limited to
videogames, and will cover many different form of entertainment. It will not be limited by political correctness, or any form of motherfucking candy pansy ass censorship.
I know that for many people entertainment is a release from the troubles of their everyday lives, and I will strive to stay away from the boring formal style of your corporate overlords. I want our readers to treat us like that friend who knows a lot about games, movies, music and the like. A much more open minded and objective friend than most, but a friend nonetheless. So like any good friend, we want your honest feedback and opinion. In the coming months, we will be introducing a lot of different recurring features. This is an opportunity for our readers to help make this site what they want it to be.
Tell us what you would like to see. What can you expect for now is that we will be writing a lot about retro gaming, homebrew gaming, independent movies and more. Expect to see reviews and commentary of Youtube videos for example.
As for what I enjoy, I am very open minded, so I will play everything from RPGs to Strategy games, to the newest halo/gears of war. My taste in movies is the same way. I don’t look down on fun comedies like Anchorman just because I love the action and thrill of a movie like The Departed. You can also count on me to talk about less trendy and action packed Citizen Kane esque movies. My taste in music is just as limitless. And I like my babes white, black, brown, but most of all Asian ;-).
