Peter’s Rant – It’s what YOU need to know!
Hey, everyone! I’d like to thank everyone for stopping by to check out my site!! I’m Peter and I’ve been inspired by a few websites that I frequent on a regular basis (and my friends who say that I should actually blog and review all the stuff I get) to start this site. I’m past my 30’s prime and want to share my nostalgia and thoughts on various things on the Interwebs!
I’m happily married, have beautiful a one year old (as of the time of writing this) little girl, have three dogs, and I have a great career outside of doing this site that I love. I’m also based out of London, Ontario, Canada.
The best way to describe this site is it’s a hobby about my collecting hobby and passions. I am not affiliated with any company.
I’ll try and update as much as possible, but my personal life and job have to come first. With me mainly doing this site by myself, I only have so much time during a day/week to write, take photos, do videos, edit, etc. It’s easier and quieter for me in the house to take pictures and write than it is to film video – so the YouTube page won’t be as active as the main site but I will try. I am also not trained in professional photography, photo editing, or video editing. I’m doing this because I want to share my stuff, so please be kind (or rip me…I don’t care).
This site is a little bit all over the place because my interests are all over the place. Just to list:
• I’m an avid collector of action figures, toys, and nick-knacks.
• I love horror and sci-fi….and comedy, too!
• Cartoons….you gotta love cartoons! Especially from the 80s!
• I’m a pop culture geek and enjoy craft beers.
• I love metal and lots of other bands, so I have a huge CD/vinyl collection that I’ll be showcasing.
• I’ve been a wrestling fan since the early 80s – just think about the Hulk Hogan’s Rock N’ Wrestling era – and I can’t stop no matter how horrible it gets.
• Would you be surprised that I’m an avid gamer, too? From my Commodore 64 days up until now, I’ve played mostly everything. Console of choice for the last few years have been the Xbox systems. Add me! I’m Eat Meah X8 with a gamer score so far of almost 110 000!!!!
• I take pictures of random stuff because I’m easily amused.
So with all that information, you can kind of see the direction of the site. I’ll write about things I love that I have purchased, go on rants about wrestling, or share some stuff that I find funny and/or amusing.
Some articles and videos may contain some “adult” language, but whatever, children aren’t my target audience!
The name of the website was just something random. I wanted something to do with heavy metal or music, so I thought electric or electricity may work.
As for the “porcupine” thing, I think they’re pretty cool animals and I could envision their quills giving off or taking in lightning and getting wacky. Or maybe the whole premise of the name came into my head because I really dig the band Porcupine Tree. Who knows how a brain works sometimes. I combined the two and voila!
I’d like to give some thanks to Dan Poluschuck for helping me get off my ass and building up the site for me to get everything started. I’d also like to thank my bud, Mr. B, for helping me out with logos.
I’d also like to give props to a few web sites that inspired me to finally do this project, although I don’t know any of these guys personally. First, I’d like to give props to Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula. I’ve been reading his blogs and articles way back when he ran X-Entertainment. His article about when he got his Chinchilla still makes me laugh today.
I’d also like to give props to the guys behind the site, TheFwoosh.com, Noisy over at Itsalltrue.net and Michael Crawford over at Michael’s Review of the Week . Once again, I don’t know them, but I frequent these sites daily.
For all inquiries including press, sending or suggesting products or demos for reviews, interviews, questions, concerns, olive loaf, sharing lottery winnings, or finding out the meaning of life, please contact me (Peter) at firstname.lastname@example.org
About Dustin (Added April 23, 2016)
Hi there! My name is Dustin and I’m a contributor to Electrified Porcupine. I plan on writing reviews about Masterpiece Transformers. (Peter’s EDIT – he’s done ONE – c’mon, Dustin!!!)
I enjoy gaming as well. I’m a Sony PlayStation Fan and have had every one of their consoles. I am currently enjoying the amazing games being released as of late. My PlayStation ID is ifragdya if you’d like to add me and play some games. Lets do it!
I have collected various different things in my life. I have a Transformers wall, a hockey wall with various pictures of my favorite hockey players, and even a seat from the Montreal Forum. I could also mention the various other things that have caught my eye over the years.
I look forward to sharing my reviews with all of the fantastic people who visit us here at Electrified Porcupine!
