About The Design
Works of Writing
Does one really ever know what to say on their "bio" or "about me" page? I certainly don't. Here's my crack at it. Maybe you could do better; then again, maybe I'm the webmaster and you don't have to read this if you don't want to... ;)
This is a wallpaper made of a photo of me on Prom night with some of the other shapely whores of our group. Please click the picture to get a better view of The Three Little Whores.
Name: Matt Van Dusen
A/S/L? (A cliche question, I know, but everyone asks anyway) 22/M/Centennial, USA
Birthday: March 11th - Send me an E-Card!
Any siblings? Yes.
Any pets? I have a cat named Maggie.
Hair and eye color, Shoe size, height, weight: Blond, Blue, 12 (American), 6'2", I choose not to answer the last portion of this question.
Lefty, righty, or ambidextrous? Good old fashioned righty.
Online time? Most of the time I'm not working or otherwise busy.
Dofus character names? ProteusGodOfBoard, Matterkins, Boooby, Eating-Death, Tatyna, Woofmaga, Coin-Hunter, Kadrina, Glyco, Darknesslolophiama, Vanbrova, Flick-Fec, Deadpet-Holder. All of these characters are on the Rushu server.
Second Life characters? Zelda Tripsa & Kai Fleischfarb
Favorite food? Anything I can get for free. Like Chipotle.
Favorite sport? Does the internet count as a sport? What about moving set pieces? Hmm, I know, carrying 50 lb lights up a ladder by myself and trying not to drop them.
Favorite movies? Too many to mention. Here are a few- Independence Day, Shrek, Men In Black, Apollo 13, Dude Where's My Car, Harry Potter (the 3rd and 4th ones), Lord of the Rings (all three), SPACEBALLS The Movie, and Monty Python. Anyone who doesn't like Monty Python should be shot. Repeatedly. In the groin. With rusty sporks.
Favorite drink? Good old-fashioned H2O.
Favorite type of music? I don't really have a favorite. A better question would cover my
least favorite type of music: Country.
If you were unquestionable ruler of the whole world, what would you ban?: Internet Advertising, bad songs, lawyers and people who either don't like me or I don't like them.
Favorite piece of clothing? I only ever wear my work clothes anymore, which would be a classic ensemble of black tie, white shirt, black pants, white socks, and black shoes.
Favorite vacation? I don't have time or money for a vacation!
How long to do spend online per day? A lot.
Hobbies: My girlfriend, computer games, fixing computers, watching TV, the web, building the web, theatre, etc. etc. etc...
What made you decide to make a website? Because I could.
No, really, what made you decide to make a website? I wanted to. I had the available resources. I really really really hate some places on the web, and here I can rant about anything I want until I'm blue in the face.
So why don't you just use your LiveJournal/blog? This is just so much cooler than LiveJournal.
How many websites do you have? I used to have many. Then, Geocities was bought out. I wiped out all my accounts there, because I know they were going to wreck it. I was right.
How long did the website take you to make? This site started as an independent redesign project of a VERY crappy website, which had its code downloaded in March of 2003. I kinda slacked off on it for a year, then started developing it as my own in April 2004. The actual launch was in December 2005 as part of my final for a web design class I only took to keep full-time student status. Finally, the first full launch (v0.6.6) was officially released on Wednesday, February 8, 2006 at 5:58pm -0700 Mountain Standard Time.
Do you have a job? Yes, I work as a Geek Squad Agent inside a Best Buy store.
Do you have a plan for the next few years? Yes, to a degree. Over the 05-06 year, I am heading to ACC, where I can get an associate's degree in computer network security. Then, I will either transfer myself to Metro for a real degree, or...
Future Career plans? I'm going to fix computers, network computers, or something of the sort. Maybe technical theatre. Or possibly making millions by playing the stock market. Failing that I'm going to turn into a homicidal maniac and go on a killing spree that will have the cops baffled and the general population scared shitless. At least, this will continue until I get bored or Bev achieves her goal of becoming a forensics investigator.
Favorite color? Black. (Clarification: The color defined by hexadecimal value #000000.) I am also a fan of the color of blue defined by hex value #006699.
How can you ramble off hex values of colors? A long web design career.
In a relationship? Yup.
Favorite animal? Humans (At least, some of them.).
Favorite non-human animal? Aardvarks.
Why Aardvarks? Because they're the first animal when you arrange them alphabetically, which means they are constantly cheating to be ahead. Kinda like opossums. Opossums are cool animals, too.
Favorite Pet-Type Animal? Dogs. They may drool, but at least they are obedient and regard their master as the best thing since sliced bread, and not just because you feed them.
Do you have any enemies? Of course I do! I don't like having them. But I have just collected a few of the years. Due to people who either hate me for no particular reason (you know who you are) or they are fucking horrible bastards who hopefully will die a slow and painful death and rot in hell.
Ever killed anyone? Not yet and I don't particularly plan to either... unless you don't like my website. You like my website, right?
Favorite TV Show? The SIMPSONS, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Survivor, Mind of Mencia, South Park, Futurama, Family Guy, NCIS, Deadliest Catch, Mythbusters, Smash Lab. That's all I really ever have time to watch. Although, I guess that's quite an extensive list, compared to what used to be here.
What are you listening to right now? See last.fm for that information.
Favorite bands? Weird Al Yankovic, Eminem, T.a.T.u., Weird Al Yankovic, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Godsmack, Metallica, Rammstein, System of a Down, and anything else good!
Thank you for reading this. You are truly bored. Time to sleep. Go to sleep.
If you're read this far- you spend too long online!
But I take pity on you, and may even include more about me at a later date.
