Name's Ian, pronounced e-n, hence the the clever little user name pun (albeit, my last name is not pronounced how it looks there so perhaps it's not as clever as I thought). If you can't tell by now, I tend to interrupt myself and go off on tangents of some form or another quite often, though these tangents (yes this is a tangent within a tangent within a tangent (FUCKING INCEPTION)), probably serve no purpose other than to amuse myself and hopefully you as well.
Speaking of amusing, that's what I generally aim for when talking with people. I like seeing people's faces light up with laughter after a perfectly executed joke or quip, it's just awesome. So yes, I'm a bit of a comedian, I deal in all types of humor. Slap-stick, intelligent, story-based, etc. etc. I tend to rag on everyone I'm around for the benefit of others so if you're ever chatting with me and I happen to poke fun at you for something you said, or am extremely sarcastic with you, sorry I can't help it. But feel free to do it right back to me, that's one thing that draws me to people more than anything is their ability to hold their own and not bitch and moan about being "picked on".
Aside from humor, I'm a pretty big video game enthusiast / collector. Currently I own over 500 games for various systems from the NES all the way to the Xbox 360 and I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting games to add to my collections (funds permitting of course). I also really enjoy anime (at this point if you're beginning to think, damn this kid's a total nerd, you'd be quite correct in that sentiment) and am actually part of a couple fansub groups on the net.
Hmm, let's see here, what else can I summarize myself with. I played traveling soccer from the time I was three until I graduated high school. Probably some of the most fun I've had in life thus far was on my various club teams, going to tournaments all over the southeast. I also tend to (and you've no doubt noticed by now) take anything that I'm writing and make it very grammatically and English----y correct. Being an aspiring game storyline author, it's almost second nature to just make anything I write sound much more "intelligent" and much more "proper" than is really necessary. However, one of my biggest pet-peeves is in fact, people who cannot construct a proper English sentence. I fully understand that this is the Internet and not a thesis paper for your Ph.D, but still; there's no reason to gratuitously use "lol" or any other acronym at the end of every fucking sentence, nor should words be shortened / misspelled in a "texting" fashion. "if u tlk lyk dis & i hav 2 fking d-cifer wat teh fck ur sayin" I will probably not speak with you for much longer.
In true author form I went back and re-read this entire thing before hitting save, and I realized (as I tend to be sometimes) some of that come off very obstinately jackass-ish and paints me as a very pompous prick. Which, I do admit happens from time to time, especially when I'm arguing with someone, but more often than not I'm actually a pretty nice person. This whole cynical / intellectual bit is generally what I lapse into when I'm either a) trying to impress someone, or b) very very nervous. (Hmm, perhaps this should be in that "Most private thing I'm willing to admit" section.) Anyways, what I'm trying to get at is, in everyday talking and hanging-out I don't always speak like I'm writing an English paper and the more you talk to me the more open I'll become.
Future plans are basically to make the most intensely fucking awesome video game you can ever possibly imagine and open up my own game development studio.
Ironically enough, in my endeavor to create video games I'd also like to create the characters (hence the whole SCAD thing), but I'm actually quite horrendous at drawing. A by quite horrendous I mean I fuck up stick figures.
