Who Am I? Starting At The Beginning...

My name is David William Stanley Rudd.  I was born at 8:18pm Eastern Standard Time on April 28th, 1971 in Scarborough Centenary Hospital, Scarborough, which was at the time a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I don't currently remember what my birth weight is, though I do have documentation of that fact, and will post it at some time in the future if and when I find it.  I was born to my natural biological parents, Marilyn Maxine Rudd and David Stanley Rudd.  At the time of my birth, my father had turned 30 only 6 days before, and my mother would turn 29 in 23 days.  Prior to being pregnant with me, my parents had lived in an apartment building at the intersection of Midland Rd. and Kingston Rd. in Scarborough, but then moved after my conception but before my birth to the house I would know as my first home at 23 Denham Road., also in Scarborough, near the intersection of Kennedy Road and Lawrence Avenue.  This blog is meant to be about the facts of my life, and while the statistics and information above is certainly meant to start us all off at the same point I started off from, the blog itself may not be continued strictly in chronological order.

A lot of my formative years were spent with my mother, and my main motivation during a great deal of that time was hate mixed with fear.  I will get into specifics as the blog progresses, but I feel it is important to place things as quickly into perspective as possible right here at the beginning.

This blog is of course going to be written from my personal viewpoint, and all events I mention will therefore be tainted with my emotional relationship to them.  I have not marked this blogsite as an adult site, though there is a good chance that expletives and possibly controversial subject matter may be found in these writings - I expect the average reader to proceed with the knowledge of these truths, and hope that any comments I receive over the course of my writings are mature and thought out with this in mind.

Additionally, I will name names as the events unfold.  This is not to disparage anyone who I write about who has interacted with me over my years, this is only to allow my life to be as fleshed out on these pages as possible so that after I am gone some part of myself will remain as long as the future allows.  I will never provide contact information for anyone who has left my sphere of knowledge regardless of the reasons such information may be requested, and other than my own personal addresses I will not be any more specific than a nearest intersection for anyone else's whether the people in question still reside there or not.  If I do not remember something, I will not attempt to embellish what I relate unless I purposefully state that I am doing so, and while I apologize here and now for anything that I write that turns out is not true, I will not apologize for being truthful about anything I write.  I do not intend this blog to be depressing, but will ensure that it contains all the ups and downs I have experienced, and can remember, since 1971.

This is how this particular blog is going to be written, and this is what the blog is going to contain.  If interested, please keep reading - if not, I do write other blogs that are much more entertaining, and I list them here for your pleasure: Crap I Think About, which is about things that I feel I need to voice an opinion over; Confessions Of An Achievement Whore, a videogaming blog that covers new titles, my reviews, and at some point will even discuss games of the past that I have immersed myself in; Real To Reel, a movie blog focusing on rumours and news, but also contains some reviews and is generally film related with some DVD and Blu-Ray stuff thrown in for good measure; and Telly Vision, discussing current shows and past series, whether available on disc or internet.  I hope that if you do not read my writings here, you take the time to see if any of my other blogsites are more palatable for you.

One last note:  This blog will be updated on an infrequent basis.  I am approaching my 40th birthday, I have Congestive Heart Failure, and as already stated I am managing four other blogs at the same time.  I always update my first blog, Crap I Think About, whenever I write a post on any of the other blogsites, so if you want to keep track of posts here, reading that one regularly would be the best way to go about it as far as I know.  People who have subscribed to the other blogs are for some reason not getting updated as to when I post, but that is a Blogger problem, not mine.

Hope everyone has a good day, and I will write here again soon.


  1. Does this mean I'll actually get to see my name in print?

  2. Also I (his wife to be) do ask that people keep in mind that this wonderful person has been taken for a ride by others. However still manages to love... well...Me! :)
