    lol @ you guys and lol @ the poll choices
    I voted for all of them.

    As much as I'd like to lie and make up a fantastic story...I have to be honest and say I'm here because of Nick. Prior to that it was the Opeth forum...before it quickly spiralled out of control

    About this time I had a convo with Nick on AIM and I asked, "who the fuck invited Dorian, Moonlapse, and all these other Opeth fucktards?" He replied, "I did."

    BME aside, that's about as awkward a moment as one person can have on the net.

    Though, there was the time when thinking I was typing to a chum, I mistakenly begin typing racial epithets in my bosses AIM window. Thankfully I caught it before pressing "send".


    Jonathan, you know I love the shit out of you today, so please don't take that factoid the wrong way. :dopey:

    :lol: @ that story
    The only thing I remember about Moonlapse being here was he just bitched and moaned about the Opeth forum and as soon as they asked him to be a moderator, he left skid marks getting back there so fast

    I met Mark, Jason and Ali at ProgPower 3 (or 4). I had on an UltimateMetal t-shirt that Deron had sent me. Mark asked if I was a staff writer. I said no, that I post as General Zod. They all recognized the nick from the Nevermore, Opeth and ProgPower forums. So we got to chatting... etc. etc. etc. At that time, the only "extreme" Metal I was listening to was Opeth and In Flames. They told me to check out their zine and forum. Ironically, this forum has probably had a greater impact on my musical tatses, than anything else I can think of. Which is probably the reason I tend to disappear for a bit every so often. It's fairly depressing to see what this place has become.

    You're not the only one, Zod! Though I've definitely gone my own way from the musical tastes of this board, it did open my ears to a few fucktons of bands over the years!

    Wotan and Dmanxpit mentioned RC a few times, so I had to check it out.

    I don't know who you are talking about and I don't know who you are so obviously you haven't wound up here at all.

    While attending HC2 we noticed a group of overly excited middle aged adult males drinking tons of booze and yelling all sorts of slogans every 15 seconds or so. Thats how I found out about RC.

    I was/am a member on Arg.com, and I don't know how much longer that's going to last. A couple of people told me to come here, so I'm trying it out. :)
