I was found in a Petri Dish during the 1970s, presumably the result of a lab experiment gone horribly wrong and adopted by ginger people from England where I was subsequently raised. During the 80s I grew up on a diet of poor Saturday morning cartoons ("Thundercats, Ho!"), that Take On Me video by Aha and various 8 and 16 bit computers. Finding my way into the cracking scene during the 90s I was sure that some day my skills would enable me to subjugate humanity and finally get the respect I fucking deserve. I was wrong.
After somehow ending up on VCDQ in 2001, I bit the bullet and joined the forum in early 2002, becoming staff in 2003 and Admin in... I dunno... 2005? All this despite having nothing to do with the movie scene. Nowadays when I'm not slaving away at a keyboard for my employer doing "computer stuff" I illustrate the dichotomy of the VCDQ forums by being both a total fucking jerk whilst simultaneously being helpful and insightful (I never said I was humble)... and now both of my personalities have a blog!
In keeping with the rest of the site I'd like to extend a heartfelt "Fuck you" and "Welcome to VCDQ" to each and every one of you... Enjoy your stay :)
There was a time when I was described as "quiet" and "polite." I was quiet, and mostly anti-social, even at a very young age. I was introduced to computers when I was 7 and then again when I was 10. It would be many years before I revisited the computer world, but when I finally got around to it, amazing things bloomed. I co-founded a BBS and sold my half out, and branched out to the internet. I took to the internet and being able to abuse people like a duck to water.
Fast forward a few years. I found VCDQuality, lurked and liked what I saw. I signed up and beat up on some members, flamed others, and lent a helping hand where I cared to. Some staff changes happened and I was given the opportunity to move up, and have enjoyed the near immense power that courses through my keyboard daily. Here we are on the cusp of a rebirth, the Phoenix rising from the ashes, and I'm part of it. It warms me up like a New England Bonfire.
Yes, there was a time when I was described as "quiet" and "polite." Now they call me "asshole" and "fucking dick" and "sexual deviant," and I like it.
I am computer illiterate....im a foul mouthed ill tempered highrise hard hat with a thc problem...i never knew shit about computers till i got one around 2001 and i still dont...im consistantly inventing new ways to fuck mine up....after i got my first computer i figured why should i pay for anything anymore...
i was introduced to this shithole by a guy on my jobsite(Dum Waldo) that knew about the scene back in 2002...i joined shortly after and fought my way through the customary forum hazings....after being almost banned along with MrEMann by the legendary Kalvaltis i settled in just fine....some retards here though id make a good mod around 2008....im still proving them wrong and plan to do so on a regular basis....
...although i am half geek (on my mothers side) - I AM THE ANTI-GEEK
The great legend began in 1977 as a determined alien in hiding, and a conned, seed-receiving, female Caucasian spawned what was never meant to exist, thus changing global events forever. Having survived a planned abortion, by 1989, this half-breed monstrosity had conquered (and destroyed) all household electronic devices, before finally receiving a Packard Bell 100MHz computer... followed by a swift unintended format, a mistake that would lead to a unified destiny that could only benefit mankind.
Fast forward to to a meaningless existence in 2000, along with the leeching necessities of a new family. Up did he climb the corporate ladder until he became supervisor of a group of Asian Ninjas. Two of which were Zombie Pirate Ninjas, who led him into their underground world as their pupil, thus introducing the only web-presence at the time that covered releases, the great VCDQuality.com.
Born part-Cyborg, part-Ninja, all-tattoo, I punched my way out of the womb in Thailand many, many moons ago. For eons I was worshipped by the locals as a demi-god until one fateful day an incident between my Uncle Oddjob and 007 led me onto the path of revenge... I was coming to London dammit, and I was gonna kick Bonds arse!
I mingled in perfectly with the locals and gradually worked on my Cockney accent until I could give Dick Van Dyke a run for his money. My Cockney upbringing coupled with hours of watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turned me into ONE HARD BASTARD... If I kicked my monitor I'd bruise the Internet! I also invented Giraffes when I angrilly upper-cut a horse once.
A few years ago I realised that the only place that would accept my superhuman skills and not treat me like the freak that I am was VCDQ, and they needed somebody to spell-check the site and an amazing partnership was born. The rest, as they, is history.
Raised by hippies who survived in the wild on a diet of lentils and bark, I was introduced to the joys of THC before I was introduced to walking. As such, over the years I've built up a tolerance so high that my hunger for weed can now only be satiated by standing in a burning grow room and taking deep breaths.
Fast forward a few (ok, a lot of) years and I gained an interest in computers. Mainly due to being either banned from all of the cool places I used to visit or simply not being able to remember how to get there any more. So with nowhere to go to spread my THC-fuelled brand of wisdom I started to focus my attention on the Internet... Maybe this was where the drug-addled masses would congregate?
It turns out my initial hunch was correct because after a few years of simply being a visitor to VCDQ I realised that at least 50% of the staff were as baked as I am. How can this be? How can people who seem incapable of forming a sentence run a website? I had to find out more!
I took the plunge and registered on 04th July 2007 and continued to visit like I'd always done, right up until the revamp. The revamp kicked my ass, these guys meant business. I posted, I commented, I submitted releases and it wasn't long before I got an unexpected message via the forum: “Would you like to become a moderator?” a simple question but an offer I couldn't refuse...
... The hard part is keeping up with the rest of these guys ;-)
