1. What's your favorite cartoon channel?


As of now I'm not into "kiddy" stations anymore. I've long grown out of those networks. As for strictly "cartoon" channels. I'm going to assume you're referring to Cartoon Network, Disney XD, or Nicktoons. At this point it's definitely Cartoon Network right now, and that includes too.


2. How do you feel turning 20 soon?


Jesus I know, it's a big jump for me, it's going to feel kinda strange feeling like an adult and no longer a teenager, even though I'm no longer in my core teen years, but still. I think I'll be prepared. I know I still have more things to improve in life when it comes to my responsibilities as I continue to grow here in college. I believe I'll be ready for the big hurdle when it comes, it's already less than 6 months though! :o


3. Do you like college?


Yes, I've been enjoying college, it's been alright. I'm about to get another job and I'm commuting at home for 2 years at a closer college campus near my home.  Although I do miss some of my high school friends and the high school ministry I'd go to at my church as well.

I might have gotten it from somebody at my school, but honestly I don't remember. That reminds me I'm about to change my signature real soon. I just decided to put something random when I signed up on this site because I was too lazy to come up with my own signature lol.

Same here. I feel that CN is the only one that's doing well in general. The others are in a dark age where they can't seem to get out of. Although I grew out of those along time ago, I'm hoping that Nick and Disney gets much for the children in the future.

I know that feeling. It's like me preparing for 25 as I'm closer to that age than 18. Time goes too quickly these days. 

That's great. I'm glad you're having fun in college. It's one of the best stages to enjoy.

I have another question, How's it like living in Georgia?

It's been great, I've lived there all my life so it's my home state. Pretty chill, and it depends on what part of Georgia you live in too. I live about 35 or 40 minutes away from Atlanta in a regular town so there are many country folks around, big land, and decent size neighborhoods. However whenever I go to Atlanta to spend time with my cousins we'll go out to the malls sometime or a restaurant.

Hmm, a fellow Georgian on the boards? I don't think I've seen another of our kind around here since a friend of mine had an account like 10 years ago. 8)

Anyways, as the resident "video game guy" I will fittingly ask two video game related questions. What is the first video game you remember playing? And what game do you personally consider to be your all-time favorite?

I don't know if this counts, but my earliest memories of playing video games are playing CD-ROM games for Planet Hot Wheels related stuff which I started doing around 2002, which was before 2003 when I got a Gamecube and Super Smash Bros. Melee for my birthday.

My favorite video game of all time... that's a very tough one. As a young adult now I'd go for a more mature tone , but as a kid I really enjoyed Grand Theft Auto: III, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, any 2-D Mario platform games, or Mario Kart games. I'm going with Super Mario Galaxy, the original one was so amazing and I loved how you would go on the observatory with Rosalina to get to all of your levels. I like the spin moves, how simple the controls are, the items, the gravity tricks, the level designs and the settings were so amazing and imaginative, but the toughest part about the game were trying to get past those daredevil comets of course. Everything about "Super Mario Galaxy" was real epic from what I remember.

Right now I'm commuting at home going for the Engineering degree, it might be mechanical, electrical, or computer engineering but I'm not sure yet. Right now I'm taking Public Speaking 8-P and Physics I. I'm only doing two classes for now but next year I'm adding in some Summer semester classes along with Spring so I can catch up. Honestly after college I'm just thinking about getting a job in the engineering field or I'll probably go for a Math major too if I decide so.

Right now I'm staying in Carrollton, GA.

As for Tweety Bird, well, it's a complicated story lol. Every account I've had on the internet when it's not my personal self for blogging on forums about leisure stuff, I've always used Tweety Bird in my profile pictures. Ever since I got my first Youtube account around 2007 or 2008, I've always used Tweety, and I've always done it for other sites. It's just a tradition that I set up since I started going on internet forums that I won't let go away.

Now, I understand that Tweety Bird is the ONE Looney Tunes character that tends to appeal to a large audience of girls, and I mean throughout the early 2000's and even to this day you see TONS of teenage girls or young adult girls wearing Tweety Bird jackets, shoes, hats, shirts, pants, stickers, etc. So as a guy it makes you feel uncomfortable to choose Tweety as one of your favorite Looney Tunes characters because all the girls hog it up and all the guys always choose Bugs or someone else as their favorite character. As much as I enjoyed Bugs growing up too, so many people use him in their profile pictures. So I wanted to be original and have my own profile pictures with Tweety but in a way that would be acceptable to more guys.

So this is how I solved this problem, whenever I use Tweety on my profile pictures, I always make him look real cool, chill, serious, or hip like. I don't choose the cutsy happy type Tweety Bird on my profile pictures like his original personality. I would like Tweety in regular clothes that everyday people wear to style him up. Watching Looney Tunes as a little kid on CN back then always got me pumped up for the shorts with Sylvester & Tweety in there. I always enjoyed the ones with Bugs, Daffy, Yosemite Sam, Taz-Mania, Roadrunner, and Coyote too. Honestly looking back the shorts with Bugs or Daffy were much better, but Sylvester & Tweety were my favorites at that young age.

I haven't had time to play video games since I left high school, heck even by my senior year of high school I was more interested in the sports world than anything. Some of the last games I played was Fruit Ninja Kinect, Call of Duty Black Ops II, Assassins Creed III, and GTA V. I haven't played my Wii at all since 2011 though....

That's excellent. I like how brave you are that you decided to choose a character that is suited for girls. The same thing happened with me. As a kid whenever I played with the female oriented toys, I would get told that it was for girls; however, it didn't matter to me at all because I was neutral. I still played with the toys regardless along with the male oriented ones. That's what helped me watch anything that was towards a female audience. Just because certain toys are for girls doesn't mean anything. I know there are girls who play with male oriented toys, so why not vice versa? Hell, even the Nintendo character Yoshi is seen for the female audience and he's my favorite as well. So I had this same challenge as you and I conquered it.

Not this time, however, I've drawn some of my own in the past though.

It's just the style I like him to be in sometimes, like I said I always want Tweety to be in a more serious, chill, cool tone that can appeal to more guys, instead of the cutesy Tweety that tends to always appeal to a female audience, and he's not like this all the time with all my profile pictures. I'd say it doesn't represent my everyday style but I have dressed in the style before though. I usually dress up myself with name brand clothes most of the time, but once in a while I'll go in an urban style, or go in my gym clothes.

I think I had WWE Raw 2009 for the Wii and that was it, other than that I was hardly into WWE or MMA fighting sports games. I'm more of a big fan of NCAA Football games (until it was discontinued after '14 :-\\ ) and I really enjoy the Madden games as well.

What is your cultural heritage/ancestry?  Like...for example, my great grandparent were Scottish and German. 


I am an older adult (46), so I have a little trouble talking to people that are not in my peer group.  What do you suggest people in my age group, talk to people in your age group about (without your age group thinking we're dull and/or making fun of us)?

I'm African American/Black, as for my ancestry background I'm not 100% sure on that but all I know is that all the folks on my dad's side of the family are more country from the south and my mom's side of the family is more city up north around New York. I do have plenty of light skin girls/women and boys/men in my family, but I'm one of the darker skin guys though.

Most of my age group are college aged folks or very late high school. My suggestion is to bring up conversations that can relate to both of our age groups. Like for example, any of y'all are big sports fans? College Football season just started last night and the NFL season is right around the corner, and people all ages are big huge football fans pretty sure you'll find almost anybody raging from all ages who can bring up a football conversation based off what happened in the last games or the players' statuses. You can bring up what their favorite restaurants are that you may like too. If there isn't that much your age group can relate to with ours, then just ask what their favorite hobbies are or what their favorite music is. I'm pretty sure you have some people out there who will accept conversations with much older people.
