About Me:


I have been many things. I'm currently a teacher at a school in Chicago. Downtown. Let's leave it at that for now. More recently, I taught as a bilingual tutor and teaching assistant to Spanish newcomers at a public grammar school. Okay, I'll tell you a little more. I've been a copy writer at a communications firm. It was pretty professional. I've been a teammate on a bunch of different teams. I graduated with a degree in English Literature, and I still like to write and read a lot.

Some day I'm going to write a masterpiece. I've written some experimental literature, and right now I'm doing more experimenting with success. I would like it if you follow my alternate personality on Twitter @SomeBoss. (What a big ego, right?) We can chat on a bunch of different topics.

There's more about me, but right now it's a quest that I haven't completed.

Favorite Games:


Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Mario 64, the Uncharted series, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, MGS series, the Rachet and Clank series (A Crack in Time is the best), Little Big Planet 2, Morrowind, The World Ends with You, Smash Bros., Heavy Rain, Portal 1 + 2, Half Life 2, Starcraft 2, etc.

Favorite Music:


Too many bands, too little time. I listen to everything except country. Anything from Radiohead to Metallica. Something with heart, soul, and a sick beat. Rappers from Eminem to Lupe Fiasco. Highly instrumentals from Deadmau5 to Explosions in the Sky and Balmorhea.

Half of this episode is missing, too!

Gah! What the hell happened? Well, Julian will explain, but basically, this edition of Nerds Without Pants is problematic. Wait, that’s not the right phrase. It’s plagued with problems. Lots of problems! To quote The Doctor: “I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.” Hopefully you power through the audio issues, because we have former PixlBit Features Editor Jesse Miller to talk about missing in action games. Please be gentle in the comments; Julian agonized over this one.
