Origin

When Glitter's Cap-Page Board first began, GlitterRock posted the screen-captures under his own name. But starting in September of 2002, he decided to create another persona to use when posting the screengrabs: the Screengrab Gods, thus alluding that they were the ones providing the images. Over the years, new Gods would replace the old irregularly (though the previous "incarnations" usually reappear to post screengrabs during the CPB's anniversary-weeks). The Screengrab Gods have not only become part of the CPB's mythos, they've even been referenced in captions themselves. Here is a guide to the various Gods:

Song on personal bio: o/~ We've been around forever and we grabbed the very first screen. We put the pictures & images together. We are the Screengrab Gods and we grab the screens. We grab the images that makes the whole world cap. We weed out the pictures that are totally crap. We grab the scenes of the shows which have been. We are the Screengrab Gods and we grab the screens... o/~
