Hello everyone, and welcome to the user page and profile of Tsu'tey te Rongloa Ateyitan! I am the founder of this Wiki! I can be found on numerous wikis, but I edit the most on the Adele Wiki, the P!nk Wiki (where I am an administrator), and James Cameron's Avatar Wiki (hence the user name and profile photo). I edit quite often on P!nkipedia, James Cameron's Avatar Wiki, Gagapedia, Wookieepedia, the James Bond Wiki, and the Adele Wiki, among numerous others.
I'm an aspiring musician. I write songs and play piano, and I can sing but refuse to do it in public (I'm similar to Adele in that regard; I'm terrified of singing in front of people). I'm also interested in Journalism, writing, and language. My primary language is English, but I can speak Spanish, too.
Some of my favorite musicians include Adele (my biggest influence), P!nk, Maroon 5, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Eminem, OneRepublic, Paramore, Demi Lovato, Emeli Sandé, the Dixie Chicks, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, Lorde, Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, Cher Lloyd, Gavin DeGraw, Amy Winehouse, Idina Menzel, You+Me, Katy Perry, Jessie J, Karmin, and fun.
Other random facts about me.... My favorite food is Italian food. I'm not a big fan of sports, but I love baseball and swimming. I love watching movies. My favorites include: Skyfall, the Star Wars films, Avatar, Titanic, Aliens, the Indiana Jones films, the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the Gremlins films, and The Dark Knight trilogy, among numerous others. My favorite TV shows are: The Middle, Friends, Community, Good Luck Charlie, Hell's Kitchen, American Idol, Modern Family, and Jeopardy. My favorite color is red. I'm also a dog lover and have one, a Chow mix named Murphy.
Anyways... I'm a huge Adele fan, above all, probably the biggest Daydreamer out there, and I look forward to sharing all of my knowledge with you!
Note: I am responsible for founding the Adele Wiki. If you need any help, then please do not be afraid to talk to me. Try leaving a message on my talk page here, and you can try contacting me on the numerous other wikis I contribute to (as shown above). I will get back to you as soon as possible! Thanks!Edit
How I became a Daydreamer and founded the Adele WikiEdit
In the summer of 2011, "Rolling in the Deep" became one of the biggest songs not only at the moment, but of all-time, breaking several records and changing many people's perspective of the music industry and what music was really about. I was not one of those people.... Not yet, anyways. After seeing that Adele was one of VH1's "You Oughta Know" artists, I figured, "Why bother listening to her music?" And when I found out how popular it had become, I figured, "I shouldn't waste my time listening to a song that is just so mainstream." Then, my piano teacher made me look it up.
I did, and my world was forever changed. I had never heard anything like it. I was so inspired. At the time, I had lost my way and started trying to find other interests because I had kind of given up on my dream of being a musician. I listened to Adele, though, and I was re-inspired. I knew why I loved music to begin with, and I knew that not only was Adele the most talented woman I had ever heard, but I could feel her pain. I knew what she was feeling was real, and I was so moved by that. I started writing songs again and taking music seriously again. It was great, I had never felt more alive.
A few weeks later, one of the most important days of my life came around, because it was the beginning of probably the most important year of my life. And that first day, I came home, and I had recorded the MTV Video Music Awards, and I was excited because Adele was going to be on it, and I couldn't wait to see her perform "Rolling in the Deep". So, I sat down on my couch and watched it. And when Adele came on, I got excited.... Then, I found out, she wasn't performing "Rolling in the Deep". I was slightly disappointed, but I wanted to hear what this was. From the moment the song started, I was so moved and touched. I can't remember the last time someone was able to put my feelings into a song that well. That song, "Someone Like You", left me crying on my couch by the time it was over. Within five minutes, I had learned "Someone Like You" on the piano. And from that moment on, I knew Adele was something special.
I thought it over, and I decided that I needed to create a Wiki for this amazing talent. After I founded it, I went out and bought 21, and it was such a life-changing record. It was absolutely brilliant. I had never heard anything like it. That was how the Adele Wiki came to be. I never thought it would amount to much, but as you can see, it did. Before I knew it, it totally took off. I was even fortunate enough to get an interview with Adele's touring guitarist, Tim Van Der Kuil. I've been a die-hard Adele fan ever since the summer of 2011. I've been with her through it all. Every triumphant award show moment, every emotional tear-up during an acceptance or performance of "Someone Like You", every obstacle, every milestone she marked with 21, I've been there, and now when I grow up I can proudly say, I was alive in 2011.... That was the year of Adele. And my kids will say, "Who's that?" and I will make sure that my kids, and my kids' kids, hear her music. I want to make sure, and I have no doubt in my mind it will happen, that Adele will be heard forever. Because that voice of an angel has changed my life for the better, and forever.
