View Full Version : Hey, Im Franco

Well things have changed in my life, so I am updating my profile. Yes I am bored.

My name is Franco, I'm 20 and I recently moved to Brooklyn, NY. I was a full time student at Full Sail (http://www.fullsail.com) studying Recording Arts, but graduated in September of '06. At the moment I'm actively looking for a Studio internship. I have been on the site since the .com days and am very proud to be a Moderator. Not because I have some hunger for power, but because I love this site and love being a part of it. Im proud to contribute to something so great. So if you need any help at all, PM me and I'll try to help the best I can.

Ive been playin games since Nintendo days and would say I play mainly shooters. I love all kinds of games though. One of my favorite series was Shenmue, R.I.P. I waited 6 hours in line for my 360 and don't regret a single minute of it. I love it.

Other than games my hobbies include listening to music obviously, playing the drums, other forms of technology (especially Apple stuff) and tattoos.

Here are some pictures:

Hell yea! 11 years and counting! Sucks though because its kinda difficult to play my drums in an apartment complex.

Because I have no money, haha. My arm isnt even finished yet. Im waiting on my next financial aid check to finish it up. Because tattoos are a very essential part to my living expenses.......

Nice Franco. Full Sail is a very nice looking school. I visited there many years ago when I was getting into game design. I decided I'd much rather write about games as a hobby rather than design so I scraped my game design career for my first choice Law Enforcement.

Thanks for everyones replies. Full Sail is an awesome school, just way too expensive. Sorry for the blurry picture of my set up, I suck at taking pictures, haha. My living room is also very small so its hard to get everything in the picture when I can only stand so far away. As far as the tattoo on my arm, if you were interested I linked to some other pictures of it.

Its not finished yet, and will be hopefully by next month. Its a Japanese style wolf jumping through some water taking the head off of some Japanese guy and a ghost to his side rising up. On the inside of my arm the headless guys ghost will be rising up. Yep.

I didnt do anything to get the ads. I think those are controlled by Xbox Live and just come and go with whats new at the time. It just happened to be Oblivion when I took the picture. It changes every once in a while.

apologies for not welcoming you before, WELCOME! =p

but id like to thank you for nailing my thought at the time when posting the threadless information in the off-topic section.

i contemplated asking this, because im sure every friend you have must have asked you the same question: 'what made you want to get that tat'

from clues here and there, the asian style lantern, the manga calendar, etc i'd say you are somewhat fond of the asian ways =p no?

take it easy

I have the same thing. It says Xbox Live but then it SHOULD load up and show an ad of whatever they have available.

No one wants to sit and wait for it to load but I don't think it takes too long to load.

Yea that guy was being a jerk. And you pretty much got it right on. I love Asian artwork. When I started my arm all I really told him was I wanted something Japanese inspired. When its all done it will have a lot of bright blue Japanese style waves, which Im really excited about.

Weird timing for a welcome hmm? Haha :nana

I dont exactly "make" music, Im learning how to record it and all of the things that fall under audio engineering. So while I do know how to operate a lot of different kinds of synths, sequencers, digital audio workstations, etc. Im not a producer nor do I write songs. I love all kinds of music and Im into some techno, but I can tell you that Im not a fan of working with MIDI, haha. But if you have any questions Id be happy to help as best as I can.

I bought it at Target. Its a TSZ faceplate. They have desert camo and urban camo. I like the urban one a lot. Probably would have gone better with my white disc tray, haha.

Ha! Shows how out of it I am I guess. I figured TSZ was your clan or something. I'll have to check the urban one out. It's the first faceplate since the pink dots one in Japan only I've liked.

Haha, its definitely a POS from Wal-Mart but it was only like $40. Its actually broken now, but thats my fault. Then again it broke because I was taking it apart since it wasnt working correctly, so maybe it wasnt my fault?

The lip just isnt a very painful area. Its not numb or anything. You can put as many that will fit I guess.

There are a lot of different stories. They are just representations of my values, and interests. From Christianity, to Straight Edge, to my friends, and my love of Japanese culture and artwork.
