Hello! My name is DeadManWalking. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to be "gtrcrgy", but those days are over, and the digital piece of information that I was is born anew in my new identity.
So, if you're wondering, I am a member of GIO, who occassionally comments and blogs. I haven't had the time to really blog or comment, been busy with life, but I am trying to become more involved again in the community.
I am proud to say that I have been blog herded twice!!! If you want to check it out, here is my post that got blog herded!
Gamify Me stories about me:
Me as a Link wannabe(via dadarkheart)
Me as an oblivious Wander in Skyrim(via DJH)
Me as a LITERAL dead man walking(via Jolt the Cynic)
Me as an epic UNSC soldier on Reach(via xking595x)
I'm the atypical typical obnoxious teenage young man with a twist. I Sure, I love video games. Sure, I enjoy laughing at stupid things and watching stupid YouTube videos.
But I love to think. I enjoy lying in bed at night just simmering over things. Lately my mind has been plagued with work, school, and life, and my thought processes have been kinda screwed up, but I still time the time to ponder about things.
I'm a very political person of conservative views, but I won't spout fire and brimstone at you for having opposing views. I know how to respect others. After all, opinions are opinions, everybody has something worth hearing. Most of the time.
I'm a young man of faith too. I'm a Christian, I go to church, sing Jesus songs, believe that Jesus died for my sins and through Him I have salvation, and I try to love others with God's love the best I can. Again, I'll respect your views on religion. Arguments don't convert others.
I love reading. I guess it helps me take away my mind from thinking. I over think a lot, sometimes it betters me, sometimes it worsens me. But I find that reading can calm my soul on many occassions.
I love playing video games. I had never been able to play many in the earlier stages of my life(that's changed over the past two or three years), but I have a die-hard opinion that dynamic stories make video games superb--most of the time. I love playing online multiplayer, but a good single-player story is what matters most to me.
I would call myself a very passionate person in real life. I'm loud, crazy, upbeat, somewhat obnoxious, but I try to be sensitive to others, and I try to do my best to care for my friends. I'm also very sensitive, and echos of anger issues from my childhood affect my thinking at moments, but I'm mostly away from that nonsense.
I'm not "great" at anything. I'm not the best video game player, the best thinker, the best writer, the best guitar player, the best singer, the best reader, the best at anything; and I'm not one to obsess over an amazing challenge, but I am a dreamer, and I have a passion to accomplish certain things.
Favorite Game Series:
Red Dead Redemption
Star Wars games
With music, my history mainly lies with classic rock.
Groups like The Who, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Rush, The Eagles, etc., I grew up with, mainly because of my parents.
I also found bands during my early teenage years that I liked, but the only ones I've stuck with that I still care to listen to are Relient k, Anberlin, and Switchfoot. There may be a few others but those still stick out to me the most.
My recent journey through music has been quite odd and eclectic. I've dived into various subgenres of metal and rock. Between the Buried and Me, Protest the Hero, Meshuggah, As I Lay Dying, Tool, Intronaut, Animals as Leaders, TesseracT, Dream Theater, Blind Guardian, The Ocean, Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree, Russian Circles, maudlin of the Well, Cloudkicker, Kayo Dot, and Mastodon are all bands I've spent the past year or so delving into. My tastes in music have been expanding and diverging, but the "progressive" side of rock and metal has taken hold of me.
For movies, my favorite series would have to be Star Wars. Call me a purist, yes, I do enjoy the original trilogy more than the prequel trilogy.
I can't really say I watch a lot of films. I've thought about making a list of films I enjoy but I don't really consider myself a film buff.
With literature, my favorite book series would be Wheel of Time. I have to thank PRjumpman124 for this one, he really convinced me to read Robert Jordan's books... My. What a journey. Currently, I'm on the 9th book.
Other favorite authors/writers:
(insert a massive list of various modern and classic poets)
(insert more authors to add for the future)
My Adventures In Anime:
I grew up kinda sheltered, but within the past year I've ventured into various anime films and shows and manga thanks to papercamm, Stranger, PRjumpman124, and various members.
Favorites so far:
Nausicaa and the Valley of the Winds
D. Gray Man
Shin Sekai Yori
Girls und Panzer
Oh, and for those curious(which is probably no one), "gtrcrgy" was my long-time internet "alias". When I first made an email address, I had to figure out something that suited me, and since I loved guitars and cars, I figured I would take the vowels out and use "gtrcrgy-- guitarcarguy minus the vowels. But now, I'm DeadManWalking. I made a Halo 2 profile called that(offline profile, at that), because I'm not the best at shooters, and I end up getting killed a lot(but my skills are improving).
There's a little Christian connotation to it too. DeadManWalking, that is.
I never really picked it to have any meaning other than with my Halo 2 profile, but apparently, it has an allusion to Boba Fett that I never realized. I also realized that it can allude to John Marston(the protagonist of Red Dead Redemption). He fights for his family, to see them once again. As he sojourns through his "new life", he is constantly reminded of his past sins, and to escape his death sentence, he must face his tragic past, those who he once loved.
And, throughout it all, he is a walking dead man.
I am 19 years old, and I live in northeast Florida. I work at a grocery supermarket called Publix. And working is a pleasure. I enjoy it. It's a blessing to have a job, so get to work and stuff the complaints between your buttcheeks, it's where they belong. You get paid. So at the end of the day, even if you're earning minimum wage, you earn more than what most of the people in the world earn.
My favorite people on GIO:
He's been a very close pal to me as of late, I met him originally through the Poetry Corner project I started. He contributed poems to it, and over time we became friends. If I ever need someone to give me a kick in the rear to clear my brain of senseless thoughts, he's the first one to. Time and time again he's always been understanding and a true friend. I always appreciate his thoughts and his words.
One of my fellow Star Wars fan-brothers, he has his moments like me where he goes loopy and crazy and hyper... I can always count on him to join me in craziness for a fun time. He's the one who got me into reading Wheel of Time... He didn't need to use many words to convince me, he had me hooked comparing the author to JRR Tolkien, and I have to say, I agree with his comparison.
He's been kinda like a big brother to me. Yes, I've had moments where I've butted heads with people, including him, but he always stays true to who he is. He has a method of straightforward encouragement that isn't always what you want, but in the end turns out to be what you need. He has been my main inspiration to draw. I had never tried much in the realm of draw art, but seeing his drawings of ponies(don't hate) made me want to try my hand. I've managed to draw a couple things out of Star Wars and a lot of ponies, and I plan on trying more and improving my skills.
I won't say that Saint is my best pal, because he isn't. I don't talk to him much, but he was my main inspiration to getting into blogging. He's a great guy, and he has been hugely committed to making this community a better place.
Mojo is kinda like an uncle. You don't get to talk to him often, but when you do, he always gives you a good word of advice and a joke to go along with it. He always is in a positive mood, and never succumbs to hate or rude comments. I've always looked up to him, and have tried to emulate his patience with others.
This guy is crazy... If he ever pins you in a corner, flail your arms and scream. SCREAM. Anyways, he'll never admit it to you, but he has a sensitive mind with deep, provoking thoughts. His poems always amaze me and cut to my heart. It's hard to write sonnets, and he is a master at writing them. He MAY have his moments, but he always comes to. And he cares for his friends.
I consider him like a younger brother--if such a thing can exist over the internet. He randomly asked me to be his friend over a random comment, and it genuinely surprised me. He treated friendship like a serious thing, a cherished thing, and I've always enjoyed talking to him. He has a thinking mind, and humorous thoughts. He has a knack for rage comics. Some funny, some not, but he enjoys doing them, and I like seeing what he puts out.
(more people to be added sometime in the future)
AND NOW... for the most epicly awesomely BAD DONKEY science fiction character EVAR!!!!!!!!
The one. The only. Boba Fett. The best bounty hunter in the galaxy far, far away. Ever. In the history of time, NO one is as bad as Fett. No one. Only Han Solo is his equal.
Boba Fett taking down his bounty. Dead, not alive. Shaken... Not stirred(wait, this isn't James Bond!)
Boba Fett posing for the ladies. Yep. Look at that nice chunk of manly Mando.
So, yeah, I'm obsessed with Mandalorians, especially Boba Fett.
Just one more?
Ittttttttttsssssssss PONY FETT!!!!!!!!! :)
Thanks for reading this nonsensical biography of someone you'll probably never even meet.
THIS PAGE DOESN'T SHOW IT BUT I AM OBSESSED WITH CAPS LOCK.
