Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to. –Alfred A. Montapert
These computers on our desks are turning into portals to other realms of existence…realms that will one day be preferred to earth. –Edward Castronova

Thanks for visiting my profile,

I am here almost exclusively on the VideoGameGeek side with the rare trip over to BGG. I became a VGG admin near the end of 2014 and I deal with entries and corrections in most areas. I like to collect video game related art books, soundtracks, and occasionally other merchandise. I rarely part with any of my video game collection (so please don't ask) and I use Video Game Box Protectors, which I highly recommend to anyone who wants to protect their collection.

Aside from video games, I’m an artist and love to work with traditional media, primarily pencil, marker, or ink and occasionally work on and paint models. I’m a huge nature lover and currently live with a Pomeranian, Pom-corgi mix, finches, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, and I am a fish keeping hobbyist. My outdoor avian friends include pheasants and quail. I also keep several cacti, various house plants, and a garden.

My Avatar:

If you are wondering just what my avatar depicts, it is a pixel image of a pelagic aeolid nudibranch. A shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. It is called Glaucus atlanticus, or more commonly the blue angel, blue dragon, or sea swallow. They float upside down and are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. It feeds on jelly fish and has a painful sting that may cause fever, shock, and interference with heart and lung function, as well as death in rare cases.

Favorite Quotes:

"I am nobody, even if I was somebody, I am beyond your comprehension. And even if you could, you would not have the tools to express that knowledge. From the perspective of others I am part of the world, but when I observe the world from my perspective I am nowhere to be found." and "A universe without perception is much like an enormous stack of rotting books. Forever unopened and unread." -Ergo Proxy/Hume

"But he didn't know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi." -Chinese saying

"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn't stop to think if they should." and "If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us, it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories, and crashes through barriers painfully, maybe even dangerously." -Jurassic Park/Malcom

"I'm enough of an idealist to know how the world should be, but too much of a realist to know that it can never be that way." -Jim Sterling

"We don't stop playing because we get old. We get old because we stop playing." -George Bernard Shaw
