For if dreams dieLife is a broken-winged bird,That cannot fly.”
― Langston Hughes
started out abandoned as a pup. I was found by Muriel and her husband
Eustace Bad! The creepy stuff that happens in Nowhere... It's up to me
to save my new home! Stupid dog, you made me look bad. Ooga booga booga!
But seriously, I don't have much time to tell this incredibly intricate story about my life, but I'll try my best.
was born in North-Eastern Ohio in the Winter of '96. There isn't much I
remember from my early childhood that's worth acknowledgement. Now that
I think about it now, with the good-to-bad memory ratio I seem to have,
maybe it's a good thing I don't remember much. Maybe I fell on my head
as a tot or something. Maybe I was a famous break-dancing baby who got
injured in a terrible accident that gave my entire family amnesia. I'd
like to think that. Anyway, I might've been born in Ohio, but I've lived
over on the West Coast in Nevada for just as long throughout my
relatively short life. It seems my mother got caught up with all of the
glitz and glam of Vegas, and it soon caught me, too. I've lived there
twice spanning about seven years in total. A lot of memories.
alas, I'm droning, I think. Or I know that I am. I'll just continue
with my stuff. Ever since I was a wee lad upon my father's knee, I've
been... imaginative. I blame the early influence of Toonami and shows
like Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon. In every school I went to, I became
the go-to guy for comics. I could make 'em, wheel 'em and deal 'em. If
you wanted the good read, I was your man. Not that I don't enjoy a good
read myself. I was and am an avid reader. I was reading Twilight before
it was cool, ya'hear? In fifth grade, to be exact. Found it on the
clearance shelf. It said something about vampires and I'm closet
romantic, so I picked it up. I feel ashamed. But don't you worry, I've
been sure to read lots of Stephen King since to redeem myself. Might
take a while more, though. I read New Moon as well. Which reminds me: I
can't stand sci-fi! Most of the time, anyway. I'm more of a
mystery/horror kinda guy. Something deep with suspense! Dramas are
great, too. My favorite movie genre; nothing's better than a good drama
Anime is also a passion of mine
besides movies and books. Well, I enjoy manga more than anime to be
honest (it's just so much more-detailed most of the time and I can't
stand filler), but both are fine to me. I like anime that really make
you think or morality, the toying of concepts we are used to, and
consequence to decisions. Death Note, Ergo Proxy, Wolf’s Rain, Full
Metal Alchemist, Elfen Lied, and the like. Though, I also have a
shameful love for Shounen. Not that convoluted Naruto: Shipudden
nonsense, though. More like Bleach, Soul Eater, Attack on Titan, and
I can remember my first game
console. The Sega Dreamcast, baka! I remember playing Marvel vs. Capcom,
and starting my love of Sonic with Sonic: Adventure (unfortunately that
relationship has long since dissolved, mostly after Sonic: Unleashed). I
loved that Dreamcast! I've also had a lot of handhelds, mostly
Nintendo. The Gameboy: Color, the GBA, the Nintendo DS, and the Sony
PSP. I think the PSP was my personal favorite. It had the more mature
RPGs out of the bunch, and Monster Hunter. Not to say the Gameboy was
bad - far from it. It's where I first dabbled in Pokemon with Red
version. To this day, it remains one of my favorite handheld games of all
Lastly, I love music. Rap, rock,
anything but techno and even that's an "if". I even like Orchestra music
(it helps me sleep). I find music, all genres and flavors, to be art;
poetry in their own ways. I have my four favorite songs on the bottom of
my page, if you are interested. You probably aren’t. If you are though,
you always have the choice. You should totally check them out. Or
reccomend something to me. I'll probably give it a listening to unless
I'm trying to avoid you. But if I AM trying to avoid you, don't expect
Overall, I'm a pretty chill and
reasonable enough guy, I eat, have babies with stray dogs, and joke
around with my peeps on the regular. I also like to debate, and
fantasize about starting chainsaw massacres in my spare-time. I also do
online schooling, so I'm on the computer a lot. If you ever want to
party, I'm here for your enjoyment. But if you enjoy me too much, I'll
slit your throat. Moderation is key.
You say that I'm hideous but yet you love my smile,
so I will give you my teeth so that you can stay a while.
Sure, it's a little bloody, but life is full of pain.
I might lose a little, but your heart is what I'll gain.
See, I'll do anything for you, here-- just hand me this knife.
If you don't want my molars, maybe you can take my life.
See... it's not that much, but it's all that I've got.
And I really really like you a lot.
Dragging on and clawing land.
Inch by inch and hand by hand.Too strong to stop, too weak to stand.Still grasping hope; thinning strands.And out of the shadows, a hand on his wrist.He shuns her off but she persists.How smooth the touch, a feel too missed.But still he knows how fate can twist.The black of life he always known.Always known as but his own.Through dried skin and to the bone.This path he treads, he treads alone.Once before he let one in.He knew this be the gravely sin.But he had loved, his eyes were dimmed,And truth be devil, pulled by whim.And touched his lips, and breath be flame;His chains were wrapped, she knew her game.But cut him slow, to bleed and to drain;And to cry and to scream and to give into pain.Soon she bored, as she got what she sought.She bore her fangs and sank his throat.The blade from the back; the one that dug most.She carved his heart and claimed her host.Dragging on and clawing land, Inch by inch and hand by hand.Corpse be wrought, but soul be damnedNone can break a broken man.Nobody raises from their grave.Nobody takes back what been gave.Nobody to be the vengeful knave.But this man is Nobody.
It seems. Like we've. Got all. The time.
My hands. In yours. Your eyes. In mine.And all of our worries.They all. Just slip. Away.It seems. Like we've. Been here. Forever.Celestial beings. Entwined. Together.And all of our problems.They all. Just slip. Away.Treasure this moment. Breathe in and hold it.Let. The sands. Drain through. Your fingers.And scatter in our endless. Wonderland.
of long forgotten
repeating in the solace
singing alone in
in the dark
tears are so bitter
are but sweet
Thy passion; thy soul, thy fruit.
We sew into the world.
As the seeds root in the hopelessness.
And strengthen in the tears.
Rise and bloom in the embers.
The embers of scorn.
Those who try to burn you down;
forgive them, that's the only path they know.
Teach the young that dreams exist.
That hate is not the only way.
When they reach the end, so that they too;
can know of wisdom and virtue.
Everything that comes will pas away,
as all things soon shall do.
But you must live on; to light the way.
The burden rests with you.
Garden of Eden.
POEMS BY OTHERS
One sleepless night
Not like many before
I felt betrayed by the moon
As the night passed by
I kept thinking about it.
Until I could not take it
I looked up to the moon
I asked it the question
"Why do you shine a beautiful white
But you give us this cold black?"
"I give you this black
This cold ugly black
So the Sun can carry your dreams
For those who don't believe in this
Their dreams will be shattered
Until they are dust and nothing more"
I stood there in thought
After much thought I just gave up
I went back to sleep
For I knew that my dreams would be safe
From the merciless claws of the cycle of the moon and the sun.
Even the kindest of hearts have a dark side.
They are the most dangerous.
Masked behind an unbreakable smile.
They are manipulators.
This World Begins' Ongoing Awesome List
(I'll update this whenever I please. Stop asking!)
really nice, thoughtful person, and always honest. Probably a personal
confident, if I would ever choose a role for him in my circle of
compadres. Wants to do something with the army, I believe? I wouldn't
know too much about that, that's not my kind of thing! He has a fine
taste in music and a love for the arts, too. He's very passionate and I
respect him for that. He's also pretty much conjoined to the hip with
PandaAngel, but that's young love for you. Cpu Xl-
My one true love!! Deep, dark, mysterious, mentally insane, is there
anything he's not? Maybe, but that's besides the point. Cpu is truly the
man among men. But as my heart forever beats for him, he says his eyes
are set on another. He claims it was "one time", but I know better. He
can't resist me. I see the ways to talks to me. Yelling, cursing,
insulting my manliness, changing things on my page for his own
enjoyment.... Oh he loves me!! (Tough luck Vannah) He insists that he's
her BFFL, but that woman ain't got nothing on me!! My deep, to the point
of stalker, love for Cpu is greater than that any of the girls he so
frequently hits on. Cpu!!! I love you!!!
- Written by Cpu himself, though it is all totally true.
can't talk about Vannah without mentioning her damn page. It's way too
long. It nearly breaks down my computer every time I go to it. But I'm
getting used to it, and I've grown to enjoy every visit. She's
mild-mannered, though anything but neutered. She used to enjoy the art of killing me, though her recent attacks on my arteries have slowed considerably. Probably fantasizes about Link in other ways, heh.
Scratch that. She does. Chums with Cpu Xl, so she must have some special ability I don't know
SHSurvivor (without the second "S" there)-
He comes when
he please, leaves just as hastily, and is rarely relevant to the topic
at hand. Ever! EVER. EVEN NOW, YOU HEAR ME?! HOW'S THAT FOR AN UPDATE???!!! Not very loud and crass anymore. Now pretty calmed out. Probably from all of the medication. Could probably
be Gorow's twin. His better looking twin. Or mother, that'd work, too. Hell, he could probably be the entire family. I wouldn't discount any of these logical conclusions. Disappoints me to this day that we still haven't
played together in GTA: Online.Hawke-I
can't remember how I met him on here. But I'm happy that I know him.
Younger than I thought he'd be - he's very smart. He plays video games
for the challenge. Seriously, who actually does that?! But he has skills
from it. I don't know how he's amounted such an incredible army of
.gifs, either. Must have some kind of secret to it. He's very political,
and would make a good debate partner. Has a very big ego. I want to punch him in the head.PandaAngel- She's probably the
nicest person I've met on GIO. You will never hear me insult
her, friendly or otherwise. It just can't be done. Hmmm... Let me try... She's a potato. Well, that was easier than expected. Note to self. She's has a gift for poetry. But said skills were always hidden
because she doesn't think well of her writing abilities. But she can
write, I tell you what. So darn humble that it makes me want to shake
her. I have a dead baby joke, but I'll save it. I want to shake her like a baby. See? Now you made me go and make everything awkward.nightcrawlerash13-
it seems like she is the only user on this list without a capitalized
name. Crazy. I remember how we had originally met. I was having a
totally tubular ninja fight with Cpu when she had to show up and
challenge my greatness. One of the few meetings I actually remembered.
Although Ash is probably another one of the nicest users I know (despite
her love of the stupid Dr.WhatsHisFace), she is probably also the only
person on here who can challenge my level of morbid. Maybe. Bonus points
for playing Little Big Planet 2 with me.
The Enemy Gate Is Down-He's
more literature-y than me. Novels, quotes, it's his thing. A quote every day. he doesn't care if you're actually reading the quotes, he just likes placing them! That's dedication. An
intellectual being, I suppose. He doesn't visit as often as I'd like,
but then again I should probably visit him more often as well. One of
the things I'm grateful for is him introducing me to Cartoon Hangover. I
watch that block to this day, and it's thanks to his blog.
you first step onto his page, you may get scared. Walking Dead
everywhere. J Warrior practically sleeps it, eats it, and lives it. But
once you get past the endless zombie carnage, you get to meet a very
charming and thoughtful guy. He's never too rude nor busy to turn down a
request to chat, and with his knowledge of shows, movies, and
fascination for games and their stories, characters, and progression.
Intelligent as he is experimental. If I'm in a hot cocoa mood, I visit J
Robertman2/ Kira/ Something About Zod-
even know. We really got to wet his feet in some anime, because he had
only just recently found out about Deathnote when we first found the
poor kid on the streets of Detroit. Now he's gone cray-cray with power.
He kills everyone at a whim and constantly is on the lookout for
opposition. What have we done?! He and Bane may also be in kahootz, but
I'm not just sure, yet. He has also managed to brainwash Koopa with
Gorow's help. Either way, I'm watching you... Gorow the Maverick- Geez,
where do I start? He is definitely his own person, I'll tell you that.
He's eccentric. Very, very eccentric. He always wants war, chaos, and
destruction. He blurts out old references like they're going out of
style. His taste of entertainment crosses into the realm of "strange" at
best. He has an unhealthy obsession with Persona. But you know what?
Screw it, he's Gorow. Let Gorow be Gorow. Because you can't stop Gorow
from being Gorow. PEEEEERRSSSOOOONNNNNAAAAAGotham's Reckoning-My
certified comic-book expert. If I ever need to know anything about DC, I
go to him. Funny enough that he'd portray Bane, as he's nothing like
him. Pretty modest and frankly quite tame.He's one of my closest buds on
GIO, and one that I need to visit more often as well. It's always fun
to drop by to see how his love-life is coming along. To be honest, I
can't remember how I met him, either. Must be the Venom.
P.S. Remind me to constantly ask about his love-life.TadorHead- We used to have so much fun! She's PandaAngel's sister, and I remember
when they first joined and how we created a group together. I do think
that Tador was a little bit more deliciously-twisted than her sister,
though. She really reminded me of Franken Fran. She doesn't get on too much,
anymore. Busy life, I'm told. Ha. I envy her. She gets back on more often than she used to, now. Hoping that the Tador Tot is here to stay.
Drawesomemd1-One of the
kindest, cheerful people you'd meet on here, and he never forgets
anyone. He left such a strong impression on me, I couldn't help but ass
him despite a relatively-short time knowing him. Honestly, he's still
pretty mysterious. With those smiles all over the place. Everybody likes
him; he's like Raymond or something! What if he is Raymond? Poor
Raymond. A fallen icon.Tim Gruver-If I
could name one member on this list who's most passionate, it'd be
Gruver. He churns out quality blogs almost every other day, writes
reviews every Friday, works on Noob Magazine, and still takes time out
of his day to visit. I confess that I don't have half of what he's made
of. A machine, he is. One with proper mannerisms, too. I still don't
forget the time he joked about reporting me from cursing on my own page.
Or at least, I hope he was joking...Oroshima LEVON Spectre-
really got a knack for tearing fine coupon-ary, but I'll forgive him
for that this once. Usually we just horse around, but when he writes a
blog, you best bet I'm going to read it. His writing skills are
incredible. He has one blog where he chronicles his legend in Minecraft,
and I recommend it.All that skill, and he never flaunts it. Not a very
argumentative person, more of a peacemaker than a dream-eater. Once in a
while I like to see how he's doing.
one of my oldest buddies on here, and honestly near the top of the
pile. We conflict in everything, from comics, to anime likes, to video
game preferences. But I remember when my page was just starting to grow
into the some-what ugly swan that it is, and he would visit it every
day. And it'd be us two on my page, and we'd go back and forth. Will he ever become a GIO regular again?! Will he ever become a famous manga artist?! Will he ever even find out what he'll name his book?! WILL HE WATCH KILL LA KILL?! Find out next time, on Koopa's A Kangaroo.
has an ego, I'll admit. A very, very big ego.But what got me talking to
him was just how right he usually is. He's unbiased, fair, and smart.
He uses sources for every claim he makes and he never makes himself a
hypocrite. That's what got me talking to him. And once you get to know
him, you learn of his lighter, funnier side. You just have to learn him,
is all. Not to mention that he is another who writes great blogs. I
could eat them like doughnuts.(Solid) Punished Shoob (-y Dooby Doo)-I
don't know how to qualify Shoob. He's hilariously sarcastic with a
capital "s" and has a magnet on him that attracts negativity for some
reason. Probably because he doesn't recognize how glorious Metal Gear Solid 4 is. Not to say that he is negative; quite the contrary. He's a fun
guy; I like hanging with him on his page. He has a little bit of "hound"
in him and he doesn't care what anyone thinks about him. Not that I'd know, really. He's his own
person and I respect him for it. He's not one for conflict, but if you
come to him with it, he'll shut you down and then go back to his
business. Also, I believe he dislikes Joe Juba. He also thinks I'm egotistical, so there's that. Maybe I'll punch him in the head.RedQueen-The
jelly to my PB&banana sandwich of mass chaos and potato. A hero of
everything Nic Cage, Disney, and Zelda.There are seemingly too many positives to
cover in one paragraph about her, but I'll try. Incredibly intelligent, always
understanding, and good-natured (though it'd still be wise to stay on
her good side - she'll maul your face off when provoked). We're always scheming, dreaming, and plotting our next
moves. She shares my love of cheesy ramen and music, although I have yet to
get her involved with anime. I have, however, managed to break her into Adventure Time. I'm not sure if I'll ever get her
to like Kanye, though XD. Overall, It's never a dull moment talking to
Queen. Never will be, either. Onto a thousand!
The Shadow Man-
A man of incredible charm and wit! He rounds up the group of
adventurers I was with when I first joined GIO. Back when he was "Shadow
Man". We would always cause chaos in the news pages and come back to
the page to share our digital spoils with Gorow and occasionally Koopa.
One day, he left us to work on his backlog of games. He was gone for
quite the blue moon, but he finally returned, a new man, determined to
show the world... Well, nothing really. He visits once in a while, and
always steals the show with his entrance.
He has yet to change his darn name. Seriously, the XI disbanded
already! Dude! Lol, but seriously, DDXI has been my friend for so long, I
don't even remember when we met! He is quite the one for shenenigans,
and is the current gif leader of GIO. Some of his videos even give me
day-nightmares. He's just that strange. Like a jack-in-the-box, you
never know what you'll get with him. I enjoy chilling with him during
his unexpected visits. Though I admit I can't recall what his profile
looks like. Hmmm.
Praise the almighty Newt!
Praise the almighty Newt!
The true reincarnation of the god of games. And music. Seriously, his
bio is intense with all of that stuff. He hangs out with Shoob, so I
hang with him when I get the time to visit. Always trying to trick
someone into watching Kenny Vs. Spenny when you finally get there,
though. He also loves 'Amy' for some reason. Enjoys harrasing the
population with his glorious presence, and spreading wisdom to all!
He is... Strange... He is almost hard yo write about. He doesn't
share much about himself, leaving you to find out through subtle hints.
He likes anime, I think... I'm not sure... What DOES he enjoy? Hell, he
might be one of the few people I know on this site who are actually here
for the games, lol. He is a newer user, and one of the founding and
leading members of the Discussionz page. He is a ladies man in his
bones, a thinker in his brains, and is prone to actual wolf tendencies.
Still trying to get him to change his name to 'DexterWolf888'. Hey! I remember when he used to first come on and suave up the place. Not on my watch...
The Gaming Hoodie-
A man with passion for anything hooded. To the point of unhealthy
addiction. I daresay that he is one of my more left-brained friends.
More of a law than chaos, I'd say - he'd likely make for a very good
moderator (something this site desperately needs) . He shows respectable
leadership skills, and admirable charisma. A leader of the Discuzzion page, and with good reason. The creator of the RP forum (that no one ever uses, sadly), the HKA
alliance; he handles both jobs well. The gentle watchman of GIO. Now he's called the Redguard Assassin - he switches the names around frequently.
A strange being of stranger origins. He comes when he pleases, and goes when he wishes. Leaves no trace; not even a thin trail of cookie crumbs in his wake. He's a ton more open and friendly than you'd think from his cryptic replies. IF ONLY HE WOULD KNOW WHEN TO SKYPE ME. SERIOUSLY, MAN. YOU PICK THE WORST TIMES. *ahem* He is an avid player of computer games and Kid Icarus. He finally beat Cerberus in DMC 3, but he probably won't get very far after that. He also reads manga. Never really told me me what manga he reads, though. He loves his girlfriend very much. Too bad I have to assimilate her.
A scuzzlebutt popcorn. Possibly my equal in Adventure TIme knowledge, but I still have to see 'bout that, as no mere mortal can dare go against me in Adventure Time battle (except Stranger, but that's a list entry for another day). My better in Monster Hunter knowledge. I really have to hunt with him! Maybe when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate comes out. He also supplies me with valuable photos that I should use as my avatars once in a while. He's a pretty funny guy. Like Newt, his humor ain't for everyone, though. If only he had some gosh darn manners.
Gaia: Retribution -
Weekly web-series chronicling a group of people, searching for the main suspect in an assassination, and the chase across the mythical world of Gaia that follows to collect the large bounty on their head. Many brief, quickly-paced chapters that focus on the many characters, perspectives, and their motivations. Based in a world inspired by 18th century England and the Medieval period, featuring people from GIO. Contains language, blood, violence, and some suggestive themes.
XCOM: Into The Abyss -
The year is 2012, and aliens are invading planet Earth. It is unknown as to who these specimen are, or where they came from, but it is clear that they have a focus - eradicating all human life. X-COM stands to defend against the alien forces invading their homeland, at any and all costs. They work in secret, and battle in the shadows. These are written records of their fight, never before released to the public.
