Random Thoughts from the Twin Galaxies Head Custodian...


This is my Blog. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My Blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My Blog, without me, is useless. Without my Blog, I am useless.

I must write my Blog true.
I must write more honestly than noobs who are trying to spread lies.
I must speak truth before they speak lies. I will...

Before you, I swear this creed:
My Blog and I are the defenders of video game players and culture everywhere.
We are the masters of noobs.
We are the saviors of gamer life.

So be it-
Until all video game player achievement is properly recognized and there are no noobs, but 1337!

    Instead of posting a response to those in that thread I would like to answer them here separately ...
