Instagram… (You can see part of my SEGA collection over at Instagram.)


Game Shows (esp. Wheel of Fortune)

Video Games (esp. Sonic The Hedgehog)

True Stories (Truth really is stranger than fiction, which is why I find it compelling)

Cars (esp. early 1990s Dodge Viper RT-10 and Saturn Sky)

Airplanes (esp. Commercial Jetliners)

Ships (esp. Ocean Liners and Cruise Ships)

Classic Rock (esp. Boston and Bon Jovi, the latter who by the way is exactly 28 years older than I am)

Marital Status: Single (and I'm keeping it that way)

Love Life: Despite my marital status preference, my love life consists of Sonia, Amy, Cosmo, Zooey, Tikal, Jani-Ca, and the other heroines from the Sonic series as well as my Sonic OC gals (They all feel like family to me).

What I don't like: Racism, misogyny, misandry (seriously, there's WAY too much of that), or bias. I will not tolerate sayings or actions that state that there are such things as superior/better/weaker races or gender. They're not fair! Everyone's equal, plain and simple. Now if you feel like you're on the minority side (or have even been victimized) when it comes to stuff like this, I'll be more than happy to do what I can to help you out with that. Besides, I like sticking up for the underdog.

Current Residence: Southwest Side of Chicago (Go Blackhawks! Go White Sox!)

Favourite genre of music: 70s & 80s Rock

Operating System: Windows 7 and 10

MP3 player of choice: 64GB iPod Touch

Favourite cartoon characters: Ladies from most Sonic, Disney, and Warner Bros. series

How I feel about others: I feel like all else's lives matter more than mine, but that's one reason why I help them.

How I feel about Sonic: If others hate Sonic, fine, yeah, whatever the [BLEEP], but if they try to make me hate Sonic, .

SEGA Systems I currently own (in order of release)

SG-1000 II

Mark III (Two units)

Master System (US version modded with Region Switch and FM Chip)

Genesis (Model 1) complete with Power Base Converter (for Master System games)

Game Gear (Regular Black, currently not working, and Limited Edition Blue, currently working)

Victor Wondermega M1 (Yes, you read that right! The M1!)



Pico (Japanese and North American)

32X (currently atop my CDX)

Saturn (Japanese and North American)

Dreamcast (Japanese Pearl Blue and US SEGA Sports Edition)

Favorite Real-Life Quote:

"You know what pressure is? When you have seven kids and you make only one dollar a month!"

- Ozzie Guillen comparing pressure to baseball during the 2005 White Sox season.

Favorite Movie Quote:

"So shines a good deed in a weary world."

- Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka quoting William Shakespeare

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Favorite Documentary Quote:

"Occasionally, life sits on your head. But hey, I've been knocked down before. We all have. We get up. We go on. I think that's what makes us great."

- Lewis Abernathy upon hearing the news of the September 11th Attacks
