goodtimesfreegrog (all lowercaps, thank you very much) never knows what to type in these things, but that's never stopped him before.
The subject is a 22-year-old IT student (found at the University of Tampere to be exact) hailing from Finland, sporting an average fashion sense and modestly neat facial hair. He's also short and pudgy (as you could tell from the extremely accurate portrait to the left), and has been repeatedly described as an adorable teddybear of a man. His actual stance on all of this is modestly conflicted.
His interests are generally limited to videoelectronic entertainment (as the size of his Steam library and collection of old consoles and games he's barely even played will attest), and he loves to navel-gaze and debate about game design in general, hoping to work in the industry eventually, even if it's just building computers for the really smart guys. He also likes to draw cutesy stuff from time to time (his Deviant Art account can be found here), and occasionally entertains the notion of developing his characters more fully and actually writing some sort of fiction starring them. But all those video games aren't going to not-play themselves, are they?
The subject is also noted for having excellent taste in music, and is occasionally known as the Insurance Man For The Funk. Ask him nicely, and he may share his playlists with you, assuming you have a liking to classic seventies funk and soul. Despite being the resident grumpy curmudgeon of the fora, the subject keeps his PM inbox open at all times, so don't be afraid to drop a mail and say hi.
If the subject's name is familiar to you at all, that's because it probably is. The subject goes by the same handle on other websites, and is a former member of the VidyaVidya livestream collective. He's still hoping to get back on track with talking over video games, via Let's Play. His videos so far can be watched here, and any feedback is welcome! He's also writing a liveblog about his ongoing attempts to wade through the entirety of his game collection, and beat every unfinished game he has. This liveblog can be found here.
The subject is also a recurring participant in the ongoing Grumpy Tropers project.
Tropes attributed to the subject include:
- Adorkable (yup, me again Little Miss Space Monkey)
- Audio Erotica (according to Little Miss Space Monkey)
- Berserk Button:

- Trademark Favourite Food: Hot wings with fried potatoes and blue cheese dip. Ask him nicely, and he might share his sauce and dip recipes with you!

Two will succeed where one will digress.
And a butt-buddy is really all that you need.
For a but is a butt is a but indeed.
So together we'll attack and throw poo at the strangers.
We'll be known as the Poo-Flinging Rainbow Rangers!

With capes of awesomeness, what a bustle we'll stir!
So here's to the self-proclaimed Finnish ambassador!
