Well hi there! I'm Soren. A few things about me:
-I'm generally a laid-back kind of dude, and I try to maintain a positive outlook on life. I'm also kinda shy and tend to keep to myself in real life, but I'm doing my best to work on this.
-I love playing video games, and always have ever since I first laid eyes on the original grey-brick Gameboy. My favorite genres are RPGs, action games, and platformers. I also occasionally enjoy fighting games, even though I'm pretty terrible at anything that isn't Super Smash Bros (which isn't really a fighting game, I know, but still). >_>
-Sorta related to the above, I used to make Let's Plays a while back, although I no longer have the drive to make more at the moment. I don't think they're the greatest, but people seem to like 'em well enough; I'll let any future readers judge for themselves.
-I absolutely adore music, and I hope to make a career out of it one day, though I haven't decided what, exactly, that will entail. I'm thinking of going into producing or becoming a session musician, although I'm not completely sure about those yet. I do know that I want to compose my own songs, and as soon as I learn my way around a decent music program I'm diving headfirst into composition.
-I'm also a drummer! I'm a long way from being as good at it as some of the people I look up to, but I won't let that discourage me from getting better.
-My favorite genres are progressive rock, classic rock, jazz (more jazz-rock and jazz-fusion, but classic jazz is good too), funk, hard rock, old-school heavy metal (think Iron Maiden, Dio, and Judas Priest), and, of course, the myriad and various styles of video game music. I've also been getting into electronica, hip-hop, and ska lately. Every now and then I'll listen to classical music, as well, though I should probably do that more often.
-My two favorite bands are Led Zeppelin and Yes; I have my dad to thank for that, and a rather sizable chunk of my musical tastes in general. I also quite enjoy The Flower Kings, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions, Electric Light Orchestra, Anamanaguchi, The Bamboos, Genesis, and The Who, among many, many others.
-My favorite video game composers are, in no particular order, Yasunori Mitsuda, Yoko Shimomura, Motoi Sakuraba, Michiru Yamane, Nobuo Uematsu, Michiru Oshima, and Yuzo Koshiro; some runners-up would be Hiroki Kikuta, Kenji Ito, and Masashi Hamauzu.
-My favorite classical composer is Mozart, and my favorite Romantic Era composer is Frederic Chopin; I also quite enjoy Claude Debussey, and a few others I'm forgetting.
-I also run the Project AFTER Album Listening Club, wherein people suggest things we should listen to and then we talk about them. It's fun, you should join in!
And that's about all I can think of off the top of my head. If you ever want to talk, feel free to send me a PM or a message over Skype. See you on the forums! =)
Here's a list of the Let's Plays I've made in the past. These are listed in chronological order, with the most recent LP at the top.

Saving the world, one random encounter at a time - Let's Play Breath of Fire!
You got your bullet-hells in my platformer - Let's Play Touhouvania 1 and 2! (part of a larger, general Touhou LP; you can read it here)
Handheld monster-whipping action - Let's Play the Gameboy Castlevania games! (Warning: I wasn't very good at commentary in this series, and it kind of shows. Watch at your own risk!)
Earning our JRPG black belt - Let's Play Legend of Legaia!
Yes, that's the actual title - Let's Play Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny: Operation Carrot Patch!
Class Mayhem! Let's All Play Final Fantasy V Boss Showcase! (group LP participant)
Two LPs for the price of one - Let's Play Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls! (Warning: the FFI portion is pretty damn terrible. Read at your own risk!)
I want to make a t-shirt that says "Does your grandpa get the pussies wet?"
Soren, you host the worst orgies.
You need to get that sweet pigeon-ass, Andrew.
