Artist Entry: The Abominable Iron Sloth's Justin Godfrey loves that 'H'

"I've been addicted to H for the last 4 years"

It almost seemed innocent at first. A few hours here and there, every other weekend, it wasn't anything I needed except when I had to pass some time. An experimentation, an experience.

That's all it was until I went to Portland. I found out my friend Jayson was in the game and then he showed me what had been in front of my eyes all along: Online multiplayer. So it started with Halo 2 in that winter of 2004 and it continues today with an almost daily indulgence.

Times have changed, and of course Halo 3 is now the standard, but the fundamentals of the game, the guiding lights of competitive shit talking and gang tea bagging still burn as bright as ever in my soul.

So I admit that I am an addict, and I just can't find it in me to change.

I can relate to that, only my vice is fantasy football, and basketball, and golf...(for money of course, otherwise it would be a complete waste of time)... that gets me thinkin'.. I need to start playing the stock market. If I do that good in fantasy leagues, what can I do in the stock market? Shit, that just leads to the point of the comment.. "Time is money, how much is your video game addiction really costing you$$?"(and not just money). Like "George McFly" once said in on of the greatest movies of all time.."If you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything." It is up to you on what you accomplish. AR
