About Me


I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and grew up in Elk River, a town about 35 miles northwest of the Twin Cities.

I've been active on the internet since I was about 12 years old (that was about 1999). I've been apart of communites such as IMDb, SomethingAwful, NewGrounds, Wikipedia, TASVideos, Battle.net, and countless others.

I really enjoy biking, camping, hiking and other outdoors stuff like that. I don't smoke, don't do drugs and don't drink usually more than twice a month. My politics generally lean to the left.

I try to watch a good flick once in a while. My goal with that is to see 100% of the IMDb Top 250; as of now, I'm at 65%.

Scorehero


I believe I joined Scorehero because I wanted to find out how to create customs (like the other 90% of SH members), but quickly found I had neither the patience nor brain capacity to understand or appreciate it. For the next 10 or so months, I never really did anything of significance until April 2008 when I joined up with User_Kuznagi Kuznagi, User_squidy squidy and User_UsernameNA UsernameNA to form the Rock Band band Average White Guy. Tragically, squidy took his own life and the remaining members went on to form Psychodelic Byrds. I'm now retired from competitive band play.

Before becoming a mod, I became significantly more interested in the way SH worked and learned to greatly appreciate the site. I would try to help out users with technique and website issues, report bad scores/threads to moderators and generally try to make the site a better place. Right now, my main jobs on the site are watching for fake scores, answering appeals, working on admin wiki pages and making sure users follow the rules and conduct of the forums.

Scorehero Wiki


I'm a member of Wikipedia as well (My Account), so when I found out Scorehero was getting a wiki, I was very happy. Past attempts at making a Scorehero article on Wikipedia has always failed, but this wiki allows for much more to be done.

Guitar Hero/Rock Band Bio


Before GH, I had played real guitar on and off, only really learning the major chords and some basic songs. I found out about GH from my brother's friend, who brought over GH2 and a red SG one day. I was hooked right from the beginning.

Something peculiar about it though: I cannot play without a guitar pick. There's something about grabbing the strumbar and moving it back and forth that just seems creepily unnatural to me. I use .46 mm Dunlops on a RB Strat which is just heavenly for me to play with.

When Rock Band came along, I started getting less and less interested in the way the GH series was going. I hate the "MOAR NOTES HIGHER SCORE FASTER SOLOS" mentality and, although it sounds cliche, I really just like to play for the music. I am fortunate to have grown up with pretty much all the music RB has and its setlist matches my musical tastes almost exactly. At first I mainly stuck with guitar, but I can do every instrument pretty well. I now almost always play drums except if someone else wants to, then I'll move to guitar/bass.

Tool Assisted Speedruns


Before Scorehero, I was a member of TASVideos, a site for creating Tool-Assisted Speedruns. A tool-assisted speedrun or TAS is a video of a game being completed by an emulator as fast as possible. An emulator uses tools such as slowing the game down, frame advancing (where you step through each frame of the game's output like a debugger), savestates, and many others to aid the TASer. The ultimate goal is to provide an entertaining video, but is also useful to determine what is possible in the game and can also be helpful to non-assisted speedrunners. The people who make these videos are very open about their methods and go to great lengths to include information about how and why the video was created as to avoid accusations of cheating or hacking. Read more about it here.

My TAS's:
By the way, thank you to User_Echelar Echelar for "lending" me his template for this page. Otherwise, I would have no idea where to start. <3
