Hobbies:

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, .

2022 in Review

3 min read
2022 had some amazing highlights for me. So let's take a look at the highlights for each month. I will also designate a submission of the month as well. January: January was scarred with a lot of tough moments, but that was also the month that I bought my ticket to see Bon Jovi. February: Again, quite a bit of downpoints. Even so, the only highlight of that month that I can think of, that is if you could call it a highlight, is buying a bottle of Good 2 Grow fruit juice that had a Sonic The Hedgehog top. It was something I had been trying to get for a while, but once my workplace got it, I was very happy, and I remember it was Valentine's Day, exactly two years to the day I saw the first Sonic film. March: Without question, it was seeing The Price is Right Live up in Rosemont Theatre on March 5th. April: Two highlights back to back: Seeing Bon Jovi at Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum on the evening of April 5th and seeing the second Sonic film in 4DX at Chicago's Regal City North with

Being the big Sonic fan that I am, it was difficult to see all the hate geared toward the Sonic fan community in the aftermath of what happened at the Game Awards Thursday night, but after doing some research (and believe me, it wasn't easy on my emotions), I realized the full scope of what happened and learned that Genshin Impact may have actually deserved to win the Players' Choice Award after all. I'm saying "may" because there's really no way to know for sure how different things could have been. Before I go into that, however, I thought I'd tell you that Sonic Frontiers did win some awards back in September at the Japan Game Awards, being one of ten games to win the Future Division Award, being the first Sonic game to win an award at that event. Another winner of this award was Final Fantasy XVI (16). Although I have never played any Final Fantasy games, I know how popular and successful that series has been. So for a game in the Sonic series to be in the same league as a Final

A follow-up to my previous journal When I mentioned that there were anti-Sonic people out there, I later found out how true it was. I'm telling you I'm not happy with all this hate talk. It's not cool, it's not fair, and it's not right. Again, if we start focusing on what we enjoy rather than what we despise, I'll bet you right now this world is going to be a much nicer place. I recently read that someone in the Sonic fan community brought up accusations of Genshin Impact offering bribes to its fans to win. While it is true that miHoYo offered free content if Genshin Impact won, I don't see much wrong with that, although having it for winning another award instead of the Players' Voice Award would have been a better idea as it very likely would've meant less bias. The big problem here is, from what I read, that a big fuss was made about it by someone in the Sonic fan community. Had that not happened, there's a good chance all this drama would've been avoided and there's just as good
