I'll relieve a bit of boredom and supply all you wonderful people with "20 Things You Might Not Know About Me"

1. I was on "Kids Say The Darndest Things" in 1998. Bill Cosby is the fucking man.
2. My biggest regret is not getting into live shows earlier. I didn't go to my first concert until I was 17.
3. My second biggest regret is not learning the guitar earlier. Same thing, didn't teach myself how to play until I was 17.
4. I live three blocks up the street from Whitey Bulger's "slaughterhouse".
5. The first "arena" event I ever went to was the July 4th (taped on July 2nd) episode of Smackdown. Even with the AC on inside the Garden (then FleetCenter), it was about 95 degrees in the place. That event was memorable because the WWE Title match ended in a draw and there were new Tag Team Champs crowned....two guys known as Edge & Hulk Hogan.
6. Between concerts & WWE, I've probably been to the Garden at least 50 times. Still haven't been to a Celtics or Bruins game. Don't really have a desire to either.
7. I'm currently in the process of collecting all 296 games released for the Nintendo 64. At current count.....64 down, 232 to go. I'm giving myself until December 31st, 2015 to finish it.
8. I enjoy driving....a lot, even though I live in one of the 5 most congested traffic areas in the country. I'll be driving for 8 years come April 30th and I've logged close to 150,000 miles.
9. My favorite actor is Robert DeNiro.
10. My favorite actress is Vanessa Redgrave.
11. My favorite movie is The Shining.
12. My favorite TV show is Married With Children.
13. The day I turned 18, I went into the Amazing.net store just to see what it was like. That was the day I discovered that porn is retardedly expensive.
14. Also, on the day I turned 18, I bought my first (legal) scratch ticket and won $500.
15. Someday, I will go on a tornado chase.
16. I'm an electronic/home theater nerd.
17. I'm also a guitar/amp/stompbox nerd.
18. My childhood idols were The Undertaker and Triple H. Everyone else in school went apeshit over The Rock. I never cared for him.
19. It's currently 47 degrees at 920PM on January 13th. This is what I call t-shirt weather.
20. My license plate is VHALN1. (Come on, you shouldn't be surprised at this)

You win coolest guy on this website for meeting Bill Cosby. He is a genius, and The Cosby Show is still one of my all-time favourite TV shows.

7. I'm currently in the process of collecting all 296 games released for the Nintendo 64. At current count.....64 down, 232 to go. I'm giving myself until December 31st, 2015 to finish it.

This sounds costly, but good luck! The N64 is probably the greatest video game system ever made.

18. My childhood idols were The Undertaker and Triple H. Everyone else in school went apeshit over The Rock. I never cared for him.

Back when I watched wrestling it was in an era that The Rock was a bit more of a rarity, but still showed up occasionally. I have to agree with you though, Undertaker and HHH were awesome, and The Rock seemed kind of lame. I don't watch wrestling anymore, but those two guys were what kept me around it for so long (and Jeff Hardy).

I haven't had the slightest bit of interest in WWE since I was about 12... but The Undertaker is still fucking awesome.

STANDING BEFORE THE DEMON FROM DEATH VALLEY. WITH A ONE WAY TICKET TO TOMBSTONE CITY. THE GRAVEST OF CHALLENGES, WILL I REST IN PEACE? LURKING OUTSIDE THE RING WAS A FATAL ERROR. I WAS STRUCK BY THE URN HELD BY PAUL BEARER. IT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE END. THE PALE DESTROYER ASCENDS. THE ONLY THING I HEARD WHERE THE HOUNDS OF HELL BEGGING FOR MY SOUL. AND THEN A CHOKE SLAM INTO AN OPEN GRAVE. TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER! THE END IS NEAR AND DEATH WAITS FOR NO MAN. THEN HE DELIVERED WITH A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVE! TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER! THE GRAVEST OF CHALLENGES, WILL I REST IN PEACE? ONCE AGAIN I RISE TO REALITY OF DEATH. HE WALKS THE TOP ROPE AS I TAKE ONE LAST BREATH. MY SHINING STAR HAS BECOME A DISMAL LIGHT. I AM NOW A FEAST FOR HIS CREATURES OF THE NIGHT AGHH!!! REST IN PEACE!

Let me get on this wagon. The Undertaker probably is my favorite wrestler of all-time. Great character, and an awesome wrestler too. And from the friends I had that met him at signings he is a really nice guy too.

I always loved The Undertaker myself..... my first wrestling event I went to as a child was the Fully Loaded PPV I believe and the main event was Stone Cold vs The Undertaker in a First Blood Match, I'll never forget that one. I was also at the Great American Bash '05 with The Undertaker vs Muhammad Hassan. Seeing Hassan get the Last Ride through the stage was definitely my favorite "WWE Moment" I've personally witnessed. And as far as Bill Cosby.... wow, that's just awesome.

1. Cool.

2. Part of the problem is having a car. My first concert was in 2000 and I think my second one wasn't until 3 years after that.

6. I went to one once. It was ok. I don't care about sports.

7. Impressive. The N64 was so underrated as a system and it annoys me when people write it off.

10. All I can think about is that episode of South Park where the genetic scientist accidentally puts a naked picture of her under a microscope.

13. It's offensively expensive honestly.

14. Goddamn! I don't think I've won that much out of all the scratch tickets I've tried combined! Good for you.

20. Smoov.

Price killed N64 for me. The average game was over one hundred dollars here, then Playstation started getting popular and their average game was just fifty. After that Squaresoft cut ties with Nintendo and moved to Sony, and that was it for me. I've always followed Final Fantasy wherever it went.

But the N64 did have some fantastic games: Mario 64 (best "launch" game ever), 007 Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64, the first and last levels of Shadows of the Empire, the first Zelda one.

I'm a pretty big geek :eek: and most of my Saturday nights in 1996/1997 were spent at Ted Rankin's house playing Mario Kart 64 with him, his brother and our other friend Eric. But those douchebags learned some skidding trick that made them fly around every bend and I could never get it. I always came in last. :violin:

I missed all the classic N64 titles. I never had the chance to buy too many games for it when I owned it, usually just got PSX titles. Only N64 games I owned were....

South Park
Star Wars Episode 1 Racer
Lego Racer
WWF Wrestlemania 2000
WWF No Mercy
LOZ: Ocarana Of Time
Pokemon Stadium
and maybe only a couple more that escap me for the moment :(
