Intro...I feel the need to make an update to this profile... after my long fricking absence. My username is Die The Shisno, as is my Xbox Live Gamertag. My real name is Diego, and I've lived for 19 years and counting. I love music (rock, alternative, indie, metal; prominently the bands Breaking Benjamin, Faunts, Pearl Jam, Poets of the Fall, Tool, and Silversun Pickups; most recently I have become addicted to classic rock: Eric Clapton, The Guess Who, Foreigner, Journey, Simon and Garfunkel, Blue Oyster Cult, Badfinger), videogames (Rock Band, Left 4 Dead, Mass Effect, BioShock, and others, all conveniently on my Xbox 360), and my friends, without whom I cannot vouch for my own existence (physically or not). The last two years have been the most influential years of my life; it's only appropriate I update this page to accommodate. >_>
I've got a lot of work to do....
If you want to talk, feel free to PM or post on my profile; I'd love to catch up with you all.

I'll start off by saying that I'm especially pissed with how the results of this entry, and wekk, turned out...
I'd like to make a quote from John Carpenter's The Thing that says exactly what I said when I saw the results: "you've got to be ******** kidding!" This avatar deserved much more attention than it got, because it was something new to the Arena, compared to the dozen Snake entries I saw this week! To make things worse, both a Yuna cosplay and Joker cosplay placed; both of those have been done before, AND HAVE EVEN WON BEFORE!!! So people would rather vote for slightly enhanced versions of the same goddamn avatar instead of something entirely new?! The Avatar Arena is truly full of idiots who wouldn't know a good avatar if it ******** them up the a**...

Ho-... -ly... sh-... -it... I'm probably just as shocked as anyone else reading this is when I look at that rating/ranking... now, obviously, upon looking at the other avatars I entered above, this one is EASILY the best of them, but I never expected a flag and a change of bottom-wear would go so damn far! Sure, it didn't win, but dammit, I'm proud to have at least ranked this high for once! If anything, I've now got renewed hope for future entries in the Avatar Arena; one day I may actually make it into the Top 10... thanks a lot to everyone who voted for my entry and helped get it this far!
However, although I'm happy about getting so high up, I'm kinda pissed that I didn't get any higher, especially when I saw one of the winners. #10, as accurate as it is, did not deserve to win in my opinion. I mean, look at it; there are literally only 3-4 items on it, as far as I can see! My cosplay, though still simple, is at least considerably more complex than that one is, which uses about 12 items! I'm mostly alright with the other ones, though; mostly because they are good avatars. However, I saw many that were considerably better than the winners (no, I am not including my own under this), and I'm pretty disappointed that they didn't make it on there.
Nonetheless, I am still very happy with the way my entry turned out; thanks again to everyone who voted and supported it!
