Greetings and salutations,
Im Ryan, And im from England, Long time lurker and reader of destructoid, But never really got around to joining the Community.
So, No time like the present.
Game-wise, ill play anything, i dont really have a favourite genre or anything like that, if it peaks my interest I'll play it, I generally buy most new games that come out.
As far as hobbys go; im very involved with music, i can play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, ukelele and learning violin. i play drums in an on/off funk rock band.
im also a voluntary youth worker, and help run a club where kids can get free music lessons, rent out instruments and help to play live shows and things like that.
Ive recently started a comedy-let's play channel with a friend, called "Ryan and Rob play" simple but it works. it can be found here: www.youtube.com/user/Ryanandrobplay . Its Still in development for now. Will more than likely be posting things about it in the community shows section in the future.
So ill Look forward to posting with you.
My introduction Seems somewhat inadaquate compared to the others ._.

Welcome to the dark side!
I was a lurker for a long time as well, I like to lurk and creep on people. Anyway, you are awesome, I can't even play the flute right, and the only guitar I play is a plastic one. Could you show us your band? I like that style of music.
Your intro is alright
I'm a Ryan too, will play any genre of game but lack your talent in the music department. Luckily to save confusion, everyone calls me Edd.
I'm hoping a combination of your musical talents could lead us to being the UK's leading Pet Shop Boys tribute act. How about it?

It's a pretty good start, and the fact that you're looking at others and saying that shows more consideration than most people!

Also, I see your post count going up without posts going up so I'll explain: new users have a bunch of auto-moderation things, your posts will eventually show up and after 20 posts or something the auto-moderation will be dropped.
Currently Hail from Essex, England.

More English people is best, welcome!
Welcome! You seem like good people.
Eventually us Brits shall conquer the forums. We're getting sloppy with taking over places.
At this rate we won't even have the Falklands any more.
I wish Australia would have a little dignity and remove you guys from their flag. I'm embarrassed for them.
I can't wait for the day that England and Australia go at it in an all-out war. A war to end
all no wars.
I dont think either would have the willpower to war eachother, they'd both just get bored.
welcome to the forums.
(for your health)
Like a sporting conflict against Germany, the Ashes is also a time it appears to become acceptable to voice every xenophobic rant or stereotypical joke you can think of. If you're a tabloid newspaper, it's usually part of a pun.

If I had a choice between Australia and the UK in war I would choose Australia. You see more Australians in sc-fi, that means they must have a better chance at surviving.
Cricket is the reason we're shunned by the rest of the galaxy. -_-
