Re-Introduction

Wed Nov 30, 2016 5:00 am

Good morning friends,

Just wanted to quickly re-introduce myself to everyone. I am a former HWM from ALLLLLL the way back in 2009 during the Halo 3 days. Halo 3 and Reach were some of my favorite games to play of all time. When I joined HWM, I was looking for a community that had fun playing together and had a competitive spirit as well. I definitely found that and it grew my desire to be competitive in Big Team Battle during Halo 3 and Reach. I eventually left for other teams to develop my skills further before quitting console gaming in 2012 completely.

A few months ago I moved back home to Nashville, TN and started playing some Halo 5 again. I jumped in with the Helljumpers led by my old friend Sarge and others I knew from back then mixed in with newer members I hadn't met at all. So, I've played Warzone every week with these guys and found a nice home on Containment with Criporc.

As for me personally, I have two Master degrees in Theatre/Acting plus a Bachelors' in Chemistry. I am currently working at a substitute teacher for Metro Nashville Public Schools. It's a pretty stressful, but fun job at the same time.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Have a great dayyyyyy!

Oh good, you posted a new intro. I need your thoughts on Pacific Rim.

Also, have you listened to the xx yet?

My thoughts on Pacific Rim are... I enjoyed the movie when I first watched it as the usual Mechas vs. Monster fight. I remember you discussing Pacific Rim as a struggle between the upper class and lower class (especially with the building of the walls) and the kaijus physically and literally destroying the upper echelon's protection. So, the only ones who could save them were these lower class pilots in Jaegers. As an actor who studied story a lot, especially for my MFA, I appreciated your take on that and I think you're correct in a lot of ways. I enjoyed Ron Perlman's part in that film too. Pretty intimidating, yet funny guy.

As for XX, no, I haven't listened to it yet. BUT, if I ever find myself on the brink of death or utter boredom, I will listen to it... just for you Sarge. ;D

Gorillars, aye that was me! I was a forum moderator for a time and helped start that up a little bit. I represented Dead Reckoning before making the jump to Master Theory. I did some jumping around before finally landing on IFx (Iron Fox) before I retired in 2012. Good to see you again.

Iron Fox. It was a clan that TTL DDay created for awhile when TTL (Tied the leader) was pretty dormant. I ended up settling there when HaloCharts imploded and dragged a few of those guys with me. This was also when BTB.net was fairly active in Reach with tournaments and scrims etc. So we picked up a lot of guys from the site to play under the title and Stembo happened to be one of them (since we had played together on and off since H3). We played quite a bit up until he set games aside.

It's always nice to see old teammates find there way home in the online world.

What Monster said. I was playing with HC people a bit when I was (eh hem) removed from Master Theory back then. Then, Monster and a few other guys recruited me to play with Iron Fox. Eventually I was kind of the captain of that BTB.net team when Raptzor jumped ship to MT halfway through the season. Me and Kai Bloodedge had shouting matches. Oh, fun times.

All this talk of the old days and all the good (and sometimes not so good) times. Welcome back of course, we've been in a few parties together but back in the day I used to go by ProAznsoul, so you may or may not remember the name, but I was really young back then. Look forward to more games in the future!
