[Rambo in Fast Times]

SG Gamer of the Week this week is Rambo. She is a retro gamer that loves a lot of the classics. I sat down with Rambo to talk about some of her favorite and least favorite video games. She also shares her plans for a video game-related tattoo. Can’t go wrong with Final Fantasy VII!

What is the story behind your SuicideGirls nickname? It reminds me of the movies…

The story behind my SG name is just that Rambo is a complete badass, and so am I 😉

When did you first get into playing video games?

I started playing video games around the age of four. I grew up with two brothers and a dad who all loved video games so they’ve been a huge part of my life for pretty much as long as I can remember.

What are some of your favorite games?

Some of my favorite games are Final Fantasy 7, 8, and 9 for PS1, Donkey Kong Country for SNES, Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past for SNES, Mario Kart 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64, and Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii.

Ah so you are more of a retro gamer. What would you say is your favorite system?

Definitely a retro gamer! My favorite system is a toss up between PS1 and N64.

I noticed you didn’t mention Majora’s Mask. Did you not like that game?

I actually haven’t played Majora’s Mask!

Recommend a PS1 or N64 game that many people don’t know about but is amazing.

Well, I think Rogue Trip for PS1 is totally underrated. Such a fun game!

What is the worst game you’ve ever played?

Haha, ummm probably ClayFighter for N64.

What are you currently playing?
I’m currently playing Kirby’s Epic Yarn and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii.

Tell me about your tattoos. How many do you have, where, and what?

I have a bunch of tattoos. Not sure how many exactly, somewhere near 15 I think? I’ve got roses for my mom and brother, “Patience is a Virtue” on my tummy, the Creation of Man hands on my back, matryoshka dolls on my arm for my aunt, and lots more.

Would you ever consider getting a video game-related tattoo?

I will absolutely get a video game-related tattoo! I’m planning to get Rupees, and brainstorming a FF7 tattoo as well.

If Guardian Forces were real, which one would you junction?

Bahamut! Although Shiva and Ifrit will always hold a special place in my heart.

Cloud vs Squall vs Zidane. Who wins?

Cloud, without a shadow of a doubt!

What is the longest you’ve ever gamed without stopping?

I think the longest I’ve ever gamed without stopping is something like 12 hours (when I was much younger and had that kind of free time on my hands, haha).

Aside from video games, what are some other things you like to do for fun?

I love anything creative. I do a lot of photography, sewing, paper crafts, crocheting, and cooking.

With a new year, comes a new chance to build a life with your sobriety as the cornerstone. The holidays – and the challenges they brought – are behind you, and this month of January is the perfect time to think about all that you are grateful for, and all that you hope to achieve in 2014. Is it attending more meetings? Getting a sponsor? A sponsee? Do you hope to travel or reconnect with old friends, but fear that the change might be a trigger to use? I reached out to DeAnna Jordan, the clinical director at New Method Wellness (http://www.newmethodwellness.com) rehabilitation center for expert advice. Whatever you choose to do to walk your walk and stay strong, here are some tips to help you along your path. Be well!

Do not give into peer pressure
Your sobriety comes first. If there are functions that make you uncomfortable, say no. Don’t put yourself in harm’s way just to put others at ease.

Surround yourself with positive influences
If you surround yourself with heavy drinkers and users, then your hopes of remaining sober are in serious jeopardy. Surround yourself around people that are responsible and supportive of your sobriety decision.

Do not put yourself near known triggers
If you know the tangible triggers that make you want to use drugs or alcohol, then steer clear of them and place yourself in situations that put you at ease and make you secure and comfortable.

Be social – but be careful
Keeping track of how long you have been at a party can sometimes be key. Staying too long can likely expose an individual to triggers as the party progresses later into the night. Two hours is usually a good maximum to have in mind.

Do practice self-care
Go to meetings, make calls, take time out for yourself, eat well, and sleep well. Take everything a day at a time and make sure that you are keeping track of your needs.

DeAnna Jordan is New Method Wellness’s Clinical Director. She has worked in recovery services for over 20 years, specializing in the maintenance of healthy relationships.

This Thursday, November 21st on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Juturna Suicide will be joined in studio by investigative reporter Jason Leopold, documentary filmmaker Brian Knappenberger, and SG political correspondent David Seaman.

In the first hour of the show we’ll be getting the inside scoop on Jason Leopold’s series of stories for Al Jazeera based upon the secret diaries of Guantanamo prisoner Abu Zubaydah (see part one, two, and three). Zubaydah, who is a Saudi Arabian citizen, was the first high value detainee captured after 9/11. He was arrested in Pakistan in March 2002, and, as a guinea pig for George Bush’s torture program, was waterboarded 83 times.

During the second hour we’ll be exploring the case of Jeremy Hammond, a hacktivist who was sentenced to 10 years in jail in a New York court last week. We’ll be chatting to those familiar with the case, including Rachel Allshiny, who has provided prison support to Jeremy since his arrest in March of 1012, and popular Blog Talk Radio host and twilebrity Vince Tocce aka VinceInTheBay, who provided compelling victim testimony during last Friday’s court hearing.

You can listen – and watch – the world’s leading naked radio show live on Thursday nights from 6 til 8 PM at our new state-of-the-art all digital home: TradioV.com.

About Brian Knappenberger | @knappB

Brian Knappenberger is perhaps best known in the online community as the director of We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists. His latest project, The Internet’s Own Boy, follows internet activist and programming pioneer Aaron Swartz from his teenage emergence on the internet scene and involvement in RSS and Reddit, to his increased interest in political advocacy and the controversial actions he allegedly took in downloading nearly four million academic articles from the online service JSTOR. The film, which is currently in production, explores Aaron’s arrest, the prosecution’s tactics in bringing the case to trial through the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and the impact a seemingly small hacking gesture had on Aaron’s life and the future of information access on the internet.

Having spent quality time at Occupations in Los Angeles, New York, London and Chicago, about a year ago I received a phone call from my friend – Emmy Award winning former CNN journalist Amber Lyon – asking for help with a book on contemporary protest she was working on.

“Come over for a day and write a few captions,” she said. I didn’t see the light of day for nearly a week. The result of the time served at “Camp Lyon” – as me and my fellow detainee/ PL&PS contributor Dell Cameron jokingly called it – is the just-released coffee table book, Peace, Love, and Pepper Spray.

With a Forward by David Lifton on the history of protest, the book chronicles the rise of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the new wave of protest it inspired. It also vividly shows the state’s all too often brutal response to it, and the increasing militarization of our nation’s police.

Over the course of 12 chapters and 200+ pages, through images and commentary, the book highlights key events, such as the Occupy National Gathering in Philadelphia and the alternative “No Nato” Summit in Chicago, and actions like those conducted to halt the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The work of groups such as the Overpass Light Brigade, Code Pink, and Anonymous is also explored.

In addition, the book features shocking first hand accounts from the frontlines from Lyon (in the Introduction) and journalist John Knefel (My State-Sponsored Assault Courtesy of the NYPD), and an essay on online protest by academic and author Gabriella Coleman (The Ethics of Digital Direct Action).

“One thing’s for sure, protest in America will never be the same,” writes Lyon. “I only hope that the threat of pepper spray will never prevail over the voice of the American people.”

For more information on the book and where to purchase it visit: peaceloveandpepperspray.com/.

**UPDATE**

Watch Amber Lyon talk Peace, Love and Pepper Spray on SG Radio with host Nicole Powers, popular blogger and radio personality Brad Friedman, SG political correspondent David Seaman, and Strike Debt’s Alexis Goldstein.
