Jimmy Blocksom, or DJTyrant, was formerly a host on Orange Lounge Radio of STFU alongside DMN. He is 22 years old and a student at California State University, Channel Island; Majoring in Information Technology with a Minor in Game Design.
DJTyrant is a combination of his older screenames that involved Tyrant in some way, an omage to the Star Wars TCG which has a card that is Star Destroyer named Tyrant. The DJ portion was tacked on when DJTyrant got into beatmaniaIIDX and thus was an aspiring Disc Jockey. He still would like to be a DJ at some point, but it is not at the forefront of his hobbies.
Jimmy worked for EBGames from October 2004 till August of 2007 to attend school full-time. He has also attended E3 three times in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Jimmy has also attended both BlizzCon's in 2005 and 2007.

Orange Lounge RadioEdit
DJTyrant was co-host of STFU alongside DMN. The show was modeled in the same format of ESPN's Pardon the Interruption and had many guest throughout its run including Scott Raismoor (VGCats), MC Frontalot (In the Groove/Nerdcore), Robert Summa (Destructoid/GGL) and many others. The show disbanded because of scheduling issues and DMN's industry ties.
He is known to rarely listen to Orange Lounge Radio LIVE because of his raiding commitments with his World of WarCraft guild, so when he appears in the chatroom it is quite a rarity and a surprise.
DJTyrant has also contributed reports for Anime-Expo 2007 and 2008.
Current Games PlayingEdit
DJTyrant is a hardcore World of WarCraft player with a level 70 Night Elf Rogue on the server Cenarius. He is with the guild Focus who are waiting for Wrath of the Lich King to release to resume raiding.
