Wow, has it really been almost 5 years since I’ve posed to Gamers Radio? I’ve had plans to move from Joomla to WordPress for nearly 7 years, but I just seemed to let it slide. Having a bit of time, I worked through the import process and finally moved most everything over to WordPress. There is still a lot of cleanup to do on old stories, but I’m determined to get through it.
You may notice the theme is rather basic. I’m going to leave it that way for now. I used to spend days on end putting together new themes for the site with the help of Raze, but right now I just need to get back to the basics and find my grove. Speaking of Raze, the header you see was put together by him about 7 years ago. I bet he never thought I would use it. It’s still awesome. I wonder if he’s still out there somewhere.
Speaking of groove. I’ve been struggling what I should do with this site. It’s crazy how much the Internet, gaming and music have changed since I started this journey in 1997. It’s even crazier how much I’ve changed. I think it’s time the focus on the site caught up to those changes. Don’t worry though. We’re still going to be about Gaming and Music, but with the shift from Computers to Mobile devices, we need to change our direction a bit.
I was dreading this moment because it was such a pain to do the migration and I thought I wouldn’t find any inspiration once I made the move. Man, was I wrong. I missed this place.
More to come…..

Armenian police forces have begun a concentrated effort to single out alleged “emo kids,” according to this report. The efforts came about after the recent suicides of two teenagers rumored to be fans of emo music and according to the report, officers have visited schools, searched the belongings of kids wearing distinctive clothing that might be classified as “emo,” set up surveillance where young people gather and even have detained some teenagers for questioning despite a lack of evidence or legislation for doing so.
In a recent newspaper interview, Armenian Chief of Police Alik Sarkisian made the claim that emo could “damage our gene pool.” Sarkasian went on to say, “We should fight against such phenomena because they are morally harmful to our people.”
Armenia is a former republic of the Soviet Union, establishing an independent democracy in 1991.
