Nostalgia is not only a powerful source of motivation, but it incentives us to explore contemporary concepts from the past and carry forward that which stands the test of time.

I first created this image back in 2008 after watching a GomTV match featuring Nick ‘Tasteless’ Plott as the commentator of the eSports battle. It was Averatec-Intel Classic Season 1, Never vs Shuttle Game 2 at the two minute mark when a probe became an unexpected warrior. Quite impressed with the probe’s performance Tasteless exclaimed, “That probe probably has Tattoos and piercings he’s so badass”.
