Somebody told me today that the speed running community on classic games rakes in millions of dollars. Not being familiar with that community, I immediately dismissed that claim as fantasy.
Where are the tournaments? Where are the prizes?

If you want something, you need to fight for it. Put energy towards it. Plan it. Jump at the opportunity to make it happen.
I wanted to meet Nathan Barnatt for a long time. I actually met him once in 2010 at funspot, I just did not know who he was. He was there as Keith Apicary. I just assumed he was just an awkward fellow gamer.
Over the years since, I fell in love with his humour and his music. When I heard he was going to be at Freeplay Floriday, I put in my Media application, bought a plane ticket and waited for that special day.
In my mind, I saw the photo I wanted to get with him. I wanted it to be epic, fun, and of course funny. I pictured it, I focused on it, I made it happen.
