Q: When and why did you start blogging?
A: I started writing and making videos in 2004 primarily to make my friends online laugh. I never expected that it would catch on as widely as it has, let alone that I’d be able to make a living doing it! The whole purpose of the site and the reviews is to exorcise the demons (and by demons, I mean bad movies and videogames) from my childhood.
