Sonic Plush YCH 18 by PurpleFoxKinzMy birthday badge

Last time, I said my second SEGA Mark III and its ****load of accessories were taking a while to arrive. So here's what happened. Back on Saturday, February 2, after 25 days without any updates, I find out my Mark III was in New York City being processed by customs, it took a few days to get through, but once it did, it was quickly on it's way to Chicago. It arrived yesterday, the 7th. Pictures of it are up over at Instagram.…

Now in addition to this second Mark III, I also have a spare SEGA keyboard and 3D Glasses, but it also came with Fantasy Zone II (a Gold Cartridge game), a data recorder which uses cassettes to store data, and a drawing game called Terebi Oekaki. I checked everything out and they all work very well. Terebi Oekaki was the number one reason why I got all of this. After seeing an ad for this game (which can be watched below), I developed interest in it.

Terebi Oekaki is among the first art-based video games, being released only in Japan in 1985 for the SG-1000, and may not have a lot to offer (it doesn't even have an equivalent of MS Paint's paint bucket tool), but after I checked it out to see how everything works, I find it to be more worthwhile than some of the more notorious art-based games such as LJN's Video Art system, which was also released in 1985, and Color a Dinosaur, which was released for the NES in July 1993. Even though Terabi Oekaki may not be as worthwhile as Mario Paint for the SNES, Art Alive for the Genesis, or Wacky Worlds Creativity Studio also for the Genesis (and doesn't even offer as many color options as LJN Video Art), it's still a decent game for the time it was released, and it's certainly a fun piece of SEGA history to own. Even so, I think I should stick with a sheet of paper and colored pencils for my drawings, but who knows? Maybe I'll make a drawing on this game someday and put it up here at DeviantArt.

Speaking of which, as for those drawings of those characters I adopted, I started on them, but haven't made too much progress on them. At the same time, I'm also working on a drawing of Blaze wearing that Lunar New Year's Dress she wears in the mobile game Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. Recently, the game had an event where you could unlock Blaze wearing this beautiful dress. When I heard about the event last week, the event was about halfway through with only six days left. It took me a couple days worth of plugging away at this game to unlock her. The event is over now, but I managed to upgrade her to Level 5 not long before the event ended. This outfit for Blaze is no longer available to be obtained or leveled up any further, at least until next year (I don't want to count on that happening thoe), but for those who unlocked her, you can still continue to play as her. They've yet to have a special event with Amy in a special outfit, but once I hear about it, I'll be quick to try and unlock that.

There's really not much else going on at this point, apart from my birthday on March 2nd (my drawing for that is in my waiting to be submitted), but I'm planning on commissioning some artists later this month as well as picking up some Sonic statues over at GameStop and the next issue of IDW's Sonic comics. I'll keep you guys updated on that along with anything else that may come up.

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)

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.

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, :iconnogoodplz:.

What's up Billy! :D

Hey, i just remembered a moment from Aussie WoF from 1997. On Adriana Xenides' second show back following her 8 month absence, one of the contestants was an old-ish lady called Rita, she did well in the first round by winning the first puzzle and getting a free spin. But in round, Rita gave the wheel the tiniest spin ever (like, a quarter way around if that) and landed on Bankrupt, but the most controversial came after Rita subsequently used her Free spin, when she spun the wheel, and this is no joke, just FIVE SPACES and landed on "Lose A Turn"!!
