Back from the dead (again)

Hi, guys.

Given my past activity here, I could make this post very long, but I won't.

I've been gone for a while. I was going through some old files (I never delete anything) and saw some Lilymud-related stuff, along with a lot of other things from the time in my life that I spent obsessively posting here. It made me feel all nostalgic. This is the only forum I ever really used.

So, I'm back. I see that some of my old friends are still on here. And I see that basically everyone is into ponies, too. Awesome.

For those that remember me: Hi, again! We should talk more often.

Everyone else: It's nice to meet you all.

Just for the heck of it, I'll include that generic bio thing.

Real name: Kyle
Alias(es): Kabaka
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Location: Oklahoma, USA
Hobbies: IRC, programming, photography, ponies.
Music: Anything is fine, though I keep coming back to classical and electronic (dubstep, techno).
Fave food: Veggies
Fave colour: #263773
Fave tv show: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Fave books/author: I can't settle on few enough to list here.
Fave singer/group: Same problem as above.
Fave actor/ actress: I like characters, not actors.
Personal statement: I'm still an avid The Lion King fan, but ponies dominate every waking moment of my life (especially PonyChat). It may take some effort to become active here again, but I think I miss you guys enough to make the effort.

Well, it wasn't really my way. There's a stickied post that suggests this method of introduction, and I've seen a few others that tried it.

Haha, thanks.

The whole pony thing is pretty weird, but I've always been a pretty weird person. The first time I heard about the new My Little Pony show being popular with even a few adults, I immediately knew I would be one of them. It's just my sort of thing: great animation, great voice acting, cute/humorous stories, and a friendly and supportive community. It sort of reminds me of what I had on Lilymud back in 2004.

Regarding photography, I have sort of lost touch with it, lately. I briefly ran a photography business, but then my car went all wonky and I couldn't take jobs outside of the city (which was literally all of them), so I had to go on a bit of a hiatus. For the same reason, I barely get to take any casual photos these days. My car is getting replaced soon, though, so hopefully I can get back to it.

Now seems like the right time to share some of my work. My SmugMug account recently closed (too expensive without my paid shoots), so all my recent stuff — aside from family events — is not up anywhere. My [URI="http://kabakalion.deviantart.com"]deviantART gallery[/url] has some really old stuff. I really should update it...

This is basically the only time I'll answer to that name on the Internet. So: Hi! It's always fun meeting another Kyle. My full name is so common, though, that when I was going to OSU, there was always at least one other person that shared my first, middle, and last names.

I didn't mean the 'your way' to be pretentious, just clarifyin'.

And GASP. You must return to photography. Now.

Hello Kabaka. It certainly has been a long time.
