Digital voodoo magic, if you keep talking it will only open up more...


I hope this won't turn out to be like the Ark of the Covenant where upon opening it fully, all who gazed upon the artwork will have their faces melted.

It's a good pic.  Creepy and intriguing.

Outside of gaming I enjoy reading and hockey. I don't play hockey anymore, but I do enjoy watching it with friends. I also spend a lot of time with my cat. I'm not a big people person :P.

I cook a good deal, is that a hobby? I'm trained in Indian, Japanese and Korean cooking but have an interest in just about any style of food. The spicier the better, found a Morgua Scorpion the other day and threw it into a pot of curry I'd been working on. It was a rush to say the least.


That's a helluva thing. I tried the mango habanero wings at Buffalo Wild Wings and thought my face was going to melt off, so I can't imagine the searing fireballs of torment something like that would bring forth.


I ate one raw...my left side went completely numb, I could hardly breathe and my fingers (through latex gloves) burned like I had put the on a hot stove. It is easily in my top ten most painful moments in life and I'd do it all again. The rush was intense.

I believe you. Nothing beats good ol'fashion Cajun cooking. I make a jambalaya that'll knock your shoes off.

Got that right!  And to common misconception we do not burn everything to a crisp.. xP

I know several people who enjoy Thai food because it's one of the few things around here that they can get in the holy-crap-I've-scorched-part-of-my-chest-cavity blazing hot flavor. I like Thai food quite a bit, but not because of the flames; I go probably 2 stars, max. Once the spice starts to override the flavor (and, you know, disintegrate me) then that's when I say enough. There's also something to be said for not dribbling snot from your suddenly unclogged sinuses into your meal :)

I use to live in Mexico, and I understand this concept quite thoroughly.  They would always tell me that "it tastes better with a little habanero".  Look, man, NOTHING tastes better with a habanero because you no longer taste whatever else you eat after scorching your tongue to oblivion, tasting your own snot, and mildly choking on your own tears.

I enjoy drawing a lot and just enjoy art in general, I read and write my own stories and comics. I also have a youtube channel where i play video games that has been a hoot starting and posting videos on which is a bit tough if you don't have the best recording equipment but its hoot none the less XD.

I'd cook you a spicy meal with flavor if I could pass it through the internet. Spice makes the meal better for sure.
