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)

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

It's been a month and a half since I submitted my St. Patrick's Day updates, but now I'm back with some more news. It's official now. April is my third least favorite month of the year (behind July and November). It did not get off to a good start although Easter was a welcome relief from the troubles I was going through. With all that being said, however, it ended off nicely with me getting rare variations of a couple Wheel of Fortune games which can be seen at Instagram. I'm germanname1990 over there for those who are newcomers. Now some news regarding Polymega. As I said in my previous update, there is quite a number of people who believe this system is nothing more than an elaborate scam. I strongly doubt anyone who has invested in this system (including myself) is being scammed. In fact, I believe it's the people behind this system who have gotten scammed. With the pandemic as well as the mess that's going on in Myanmar, they're not happy about any of this, and I don't see why

First off, Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone. Now onto the updates. It's been a month since I last made an update journal, and quite a bit has happened. For instance, back on March 2nd, I turned 31. For a birthday, it almost felt like a regular day. My family and I had brownies for cake, and I got some cards from some of my family members. My aunt mailed me a birthday card she made which had some facts about the R.M.S. Titanic styled like a Jeopardy! game. Inside the card were pictures of some of my favorite hobbies which included ships, game shows, and Sonic The Hedgehog. I also have a four-part birthday special up over at YouTube. Here are the links for each video.

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day back on Sunday, although I didn't. I spent it freezing myself out at work. In fact, this whole month weatherwise has been absolute-les misérables. Even so, Chicago is not the only place that's getting cold, snowy, windy and outright miserable weather. I just read that twenty-five states have been hit with such weather. Although I can take the cold rather well, this weather has been beyond my limits. As I stated at Facebook and Instagram, I got my first COVID-19 vaccine on February 2nd. My second will be March 9th. That does not mean I'll be off the hook come then. I read it can take weeks for the vaccine to take effect. I also read that due to the time it can take, there have been some folks who have gotten the vaccine only to come down with COVID-19 anyway. I feel giving it until Easter would be too soon. I think I'll be in good shape by May 4th, which will be four years since I adopted Lisa. I'm working on a set of drawings for then. I

Thank you so much for the Watch!

Hi. Dial102394 wants you to take his latest dancing feet skit and make a storyboard adaptation out of it.

I doubt it can be done quickly. In addition, there are a lot of details that are difficult to figure out.

I understand. He's just been bugging me constantly about getting someone to adapt his story. Maybe you can explain it to him. I did one request for him and he won't stop bugging me about more requests or getting someone to commission his story. Plus, I got Spring Allergies recently and I'm trying to recover from it.

I'm sorry if I sound angry. I'm not mad at you or anyone else. I just wish he'd leave me alone about his storyboard adaptation.

If you could explain it to him, that'd be great. I just wish he'd stop bugging me about it. I'm sorry for this.

There has finally been an episode from Burgo's last 6 months uploaded to YouTube

All i can say is WOW! This is NOTHING like what i was expecting from Burgo's last 6 months!!

I need your help, germanname, please.
