It’s pronounced ‘meta-pull.’ I made it up so I get final say.
My name is Nathan Altice, and I live in Richmond, Virginia. I somehow acquired a PhD in Media, Art, and Text (MATX) from Virginia Commonwealth University. I now teach there, in the Kinetic Imaging department. I write about and/or make videogames, digital stuff, philosophy, and sound.
This website is a weird mix of interests: short- and long-form writing, a long-term (i.e., barely-updated) cinema project, music I make, and anything else that comes to mind. This site began in late 2011, but you may notice a few older articles in the archives. I’ve imported those from other older online sources or otherwise tagged them with the date they were written. I’m tidy like that.
I have a lovely wife (Amanda), two indoor cats (Bane and Boots), a 300+ NES game collection (100 boxed), lots of guitars and synthesizers, too many books, and an abnormal love of cheesecake.
You can reach me via Twitter (@circuitlions) or by combining my first and last name at the Google mail.
