My apologies for the title, it's simply that I generally don't enjoy making an introduction topic with any variation of "hi" or "hello" and usually make something that involves a pun with the actual site, but at this moment I am devoid of any creative influence.
My name is Frank (alias is Werty, obviously); I am 16 and live in an obscure rural area of New York.
When I was a kid I was addicted to MapleStory - I first joined during Global Beta. As a child my interests have shaped my mind now as a teenager, and the connections between my current and my past self are both broken and linked. It's very fun, shall we say, to traverse the past of the events and pure time that have shaped my identity and continue to shape it everyday. I treat absolutely everything I do and every event that bestows itself upon me as one to be cherished. As such, I love meeting new people; whether I like them or not is irrelevant in terms of experience in my life.
The Internet has held my hand throughout my life and chances are it always will. There is something romantic about the Internet in general, I feel: the ability to simultaneously communicate with hundreds of people at once is absolutely astonishing, almost too good to be true, and yet here we all are. Ludicrous, really. There are some things technologically can't reproduce, at this point: the mere look at the dusk of any day, with all your senses engaged in a near orgasm of beauty, is more than enough proof.
With that out of the way, interests: I enjoy music and I play the guitar and piano, and I'm learning everyday. I also take interest in film history, cinematography, directing, linguistics, computer programming, philosophy, physics, quantum physics, literature, video games, sociology, and psychology, although I have many other minor interests.
Musicwise, I very much enjoy Dream Theater, Korn, Modest Mouse, Avenged Sevenfold, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Shania Twain, Limp Bizkit, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Diana Ross, Turmion Katilot, Jamiroquai, Muse, Guns 'N Roses, George Michael, Culture Club, Hanz Zimmer, P!nk, Weird Al, Survivor, John Williams, Klaus Badelt, Masakazu Sugimori, Savage Garden, The Temptations, Will Smith, among dozens whose names escape me.
My major interests I feel I should stress are philosophy, and the reading and writing of literature. Guitar comes very closely behind that.
I'm a huge, huge cinema and book person. Way too many to list, but my absolute favorite book as of yet is House of Leaves.
I suppose there's not much more to say besides I heavily look forward to my time here. My apologies if my little rants about my perception of the Internet bored you. Hopefully I don't ramble too much.
I absolutely love MapleStory private servers. They are a microcosm for this world we live in... I find the psychology of everyone fascinating, as well as this small ecosystem. I love the game, and I love interacting with people, no matter how idiotic or intelligent they are. I traverse those veils like nothing. Everything concerned with things like this are utterly fascinating to me.
No About Me can ever completely describe a person. You will all know me before all time is up.
