In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

I named the 1 up network.
it's true.

I ran into Crispin Boyer, one of the main EGM review crew dudes and surely editor in chief at some time, on Tetris Worlds on the original Xbox Live. He took a liking to my username: 1 Up. (actually, it was x 1Up x, because you couldn't start an xbox live gamertag with a number)

He says, "Hmmm, 1 Up. That's a good name."

Literally 2 weeks later, 1 Up is everywhere. On clothes sold at Hot Topic, and part of EGM's 1 Up network, a Ziff Davis publishing venture.

I have no proof. I do have old screen shots of me playing halo pc as 1 up, but that's not really proof.

I was a fan, so it was cool.

I had a part in that whole "1up" thing.

he said the review crew played Tetris Worlds online, so I thought I'd maybe run into him, Dan "Shoe" Hsu, or one of the other guys if I played more Tetris Worlds, and then I did.

If you ever wore a tshirt with that green 1up mushroom, first off HAHAHAH, and second, you're welcome!

Yeah I didn't think about that the other day, but damn we're going strong right now.
