now, i know that not all of you knew me. i also know that some of you know a little bit more about the inner workings of a game company.

when i was a representative (training tour '99, pokemon stadium tour '00, and all the ensuing card tours *i was the only staff member still under contract to nintendo so i got to stand next to the car, and play my gameboy for 17$ an hour.*)

during the (not wotc) tours, we were instructed to lose one out of every four games (we used to give away hats, as promotions to winners). well, all of us "gym leaders" decided "FUCK THAT." so we trained our pokemon the best we could, but alas....most of us hadnt ever SEEN a pokemon game before we got hired. we quickly learned how to clone pokemon, and over the course of one weekend, we had created two elite fighting forces, one for the east...and one for the west.
of course we had some of the same pokemon. we only had a week of training before we had to "be the face of nintendo".

we eventually (3 weeks or so into the tour) figured out "box tricking". i was actually the last to learn the trick, yet i maintained a win-loss ratio only surpassed by kurt wubbels (east coast), and Major Fish.

at the end of the first tour my lineup was as follows:
PRIME CUP
double teaming toxic starmie
hyper mew
hulkster mewtwo

POKE CUP
"rico suave" the raichu
"tony bennet" the articuno
"vanilla ice" the venusaur
(for particularly annoying teenage boys i would also sometimes use my "power puff girls squad"..a gift from jeff.) this consisted of:
Bubbles the Wigglytuff
Blossom the Chansey
Buttercup the Clefable

PIKA CUP
"ice-t" the gangsta rapping horsea
"turtlehead" the diglet
"abraham lincoln" the pikachu

we had alot of hard fought battles *shakes fist at simyn*, and had alot of fun. i am no longer a pokemon player, but i still like to discuss strategy games.

i am currently in the process of a move to belgium, where i plan to study linguistics at the university of ghent.

dsl (the company i got my job through) has not had work for us for about a year now in february. we did a series of tours for the yugioh trading card game (again, i was put in a gunslinging position). it was not as fun as the pokemon days, however. i regret that alot of the older members on this board didnt get to meet some of the newer faces on our crew.

oh, and for all of you who were wondering....
the "cocky" attitude was to promote an environment of competition. if you recall, at no point were any of us hurtful or mean about our cockiness.
i took alot of shit from people, and if i seemed rude to some of you folks when you met me...sorry. but thems the breaks. it didnt seem "high stress" but it was. imagine being responsible for the safety of almost 100 screaming children (not all were children, hehe) at once?
i once had a near-riot in los angeles...i hadnt lost a game in like six hours. the children were starting to get upset. i was instructed to lose to the next child....i looked over, and it was a kid that had been calling me dirty names all day.
he won. he immediately stood up on his chair and said "SUCK MY DICK!!". he was like ten years old.

haha
funny story.

So you're not actually in Belguim yet? Are you still in Kzoo?

I moved to Arizona last year for no goddamn reason.

So is DSL all done or what... and did you keep in touch with Kurt?

Ok that's enough questions... for now.

G'day, General.
