Nicknames: Mr Black, Blackie, Blackass, Magoo (stupid high school nickname that stuck. The story is so stupid I won't even get into it)
Online Aliases: Mr Black typically is my alias
Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Occupation: Senior Content Producer for a small software company that deals with ESL and English learning software
Area of Expertise: Audio/Video editing as well as proofreading and content QA
Hobbies: Playing videogames, working out at the gym and doing outdoors stuff like sports (rugby in particular) and work at my family's cottage.
Favorite Quote: "Don't you hate pants?" - Homer Simpson
Favorite Food: Tough one, but I like me a good greasy breakfast with eggs, bacon, homefries etc. Probably my favorite meal in the world.
Favorite kind of music: Rock and roll. Parents taught me at a young age to love rock and I've never looked back.
Favorite Book: I don't really read much... but I would have to go with the Dexter series. If you like the tv show read the books. After the first book it gets quite different that the tv show.
Favorite Movie: Braveheart. Just have so many memories in high school before we had a rugby game the team would get together in the team room (we had our own space, that's how awesome we were) and we would watch all the battle scenes to get pumped up.
Favorite Game(s): Too many to name, but Super Metroid and A Link to the Past are probably my top two. Also like me some Mass Effect and Batman Arkham Asylum for more recent games.
Favorite Website: I don't really have one... I guess gmail?
Most frightened of: Heights. Not a big fan of them at all. Or rats... I hate rats with a passion.
Most Embarrassing Moment: I don't really get embarrassed but a month or two ago I walked right into a stop sign at a major intersection while a buddy was talking to me... I'm sure a bunch of people had a few laughs at my expense.
Happiest Moment: Every time I'm up at my cottage. It's my place of zen.
A Vivid Childhood Memory: The night my mom went into labour with my sister. Nothing like getting thrown out of bed at 3am, thrown into the car and thrown out of the car at your grandparents when you're 6 years old. I was probably a barrel of sunshine that night...
Your "good deed" of the century: I just copied this from my last circle jerk: My last shift as a manager at Mcd's, 4 thugs tried breaking into the store, a co-worker tried to stop them, one pulled a knife on him, I was able to grab the guy, make him drop the knife. But doing so I got stuck outside with the four of them and was swarmed/beaten. My face was in pretty rough shape afterwards... I have pictures somewhere of what I looked like.
Guilty Pleasure(s): FMV games. Love them. The cheesier the better. Played way too many with my buddy who owned a Sega CD and 3DO. The two systems with the best FMV games.
If you had 1 wish, what would it be and why?: To not have to work anymore or to find a job that actually stimulates me to.. you know... want to work.
When refilling your toilet paper, do you prefer it over or under?: Who the hell cares? I didn't know there was edicate to putting on a roll of paper I use to whipe my ass?
Would be voted "Most Likely to...": Punch someone in the throat that annoys me/pisses me off. I have anger management issues...
What color are most of your socks?: Black and white. Black for when I wear work clothes and white for everything else. They're socks, no one really sees them so I don't see the need to have "flashy" ones.
What would be the title of a tell-all book about you?: Throat Punch Friday: Take Measures Into Your Own Hands (if you're a facebook friend of mine you'll understand what Throat Punch Friday is all about... if not... then too bad!)
What do you spend too much time doing?: Probably playing videogames. 60 years from now I'll look back and wonder why I wasted so much time on those things but as of right now I don't care. I could play them all day if I could.
Most treasured possession: My original NES I got in '89 that still works perfectly!
What's always on your grocery list?: Cereal. I have at least one bowl a day... I think I may have a problem...
The thing you like best about yourself: Either my no-bullshitness or my work ethic. I'm usually quite straight forward and if I'm motivated to do something I give it my all each time.
The thing you like least about yourself: I wish I were more handy. Most guys had their dads teach them how to use tools, fix things etc. but my dad never really did. He's one of those guys that if shows you something and you can't do it right away he gets frustrated and does it himself so I've had to pick up a lot of stuff on my own. I'm kinda handy at some things but I wish I could do more.
What should never be discussed in polite company (if anything)?: Any stories from my college rugby road trips... things got a little crazy on the tour buses.
Favorite hero: Batman
Favorite villain: hmm... probably Joker
Favorite forum thread at Thegameheroes.com, this very moment: You Know What Grings My Gears. I'm a ball of anger so I like to vent about stupid pointless shit that pisses me off... and there's a lot.
If you were to have a plate in your head, which metal would you choose and why?: Titanium and I would headbutt anyone that pissed me off.
Cake or pie?: Cheese cake.
What was your first console?: Intelevision. It was and still is a fantastic system.
Your first game for that first console?: Atlantis for Intelevision. It's the first game I ever remember playing.
Nerdiest moment: Talking Transformers and showing off all my action figures... I have a lot...
If you were a superhero/villain, which member of the forum would you choose to be your sidekick/henchman, or vise versa?: I would probably pick Havokk but the dude needs the learn the ways of evil. Screw being a sidekick!
If you were playing a tabletop RPG, who would you pick to be your DM?: Never played one and probably never will.
If you were one of Dr. Wily's Master Robots, which one would you be and why?: Gutsman because I want to throw boulders at people.
Any final thoughts before this wraps up?: Don't you hate pants?
Favorite booze: Beer. I likes my beer.
Favorite console: Either my SNES or 360. Play both a fair bit.

Favorite character: Character in what? Can I choose myself? I am my favorite character.
Favorite dance: Stir the butter. I also don't really dance.
Favorite forum: thegameheroes
Favorite member: I like a lot of members, ZombiesAteMyDog always has something informative to say, Psycho Gorrilla and his love for retro gaming, Havokk because he's turning out to be a fun member, Max, Darkseid etc. Can't pick one!
Favorite song: Changes all the time, but right now I think it would be Black Rain by Soundgarden. They need to release new material, badly.
Favorite band: Probably the Foo Fighters. Never released a bad album.
Favorite podcast: Prototype
Favorite salutation: Bonjourrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Favorite rank: I think there's a Starscream one in here somewhere... I want that rank and I want it now!

Favorite bank: I hate banks. I would keep all my cash under my mattress if I could.
Favorite wank: Every day is a good day to wank.
Favorite yank: George Steinbrenner
Favorite Hank: Hank Azaria. Of the Simpsons... how you've fallen from grace in the last... i dunno 15 years?
Any last words to wrap up this abomination of a member spotlight?
Don't put your shoes on before your pants. You're just asking for trouble if you do.... unless you don't wear pants and then you're ahead of the curve!
