A little bit about me.
I started this blog some years back to have a place to write down stuff that’s on my mind. It’s easier and more permanent than paper and usually more accessible too. I have no illusions that anybody cares about what I have to say about life or myself, this journal is basically for my own future reflection and is mainly masturbatory in nature. Sadly, since the growth of Twitter and Facebook and every other social media site, I don’t post here much anymore. But I manage to get a few words down from time to time.
I also write monthly op-ed articles for a retro/collector focused video game website called RF Generation. We have a pretty good following, you should check it out at rfgeneration.com if you’re into games. I’ve been writing on my own since I was a teenager and really love it. I’m not creative at all so I don’t write creatively, but I really enjoy writing editorially. I have this stupid illusion that some day someone will want to pay me to write full time, but it’s just a pipe dream.
My loves include video games (I own close to 1200 and counting), reading, music of all different types (I have more video game soundtracks than any other band or artist), movies, computers, technology, nerdy stuff of all kinds, fast cars, and motorcycles. I’m actually a pretty big tech buff and at this point in my life I’m fortunate enough to have way more electronics and video games than I have time to play with. Talk about first world problems.
I live in Cleveland, OH and spend my days working, writing, playing video games, and hanging out with my friends just like anybody else. That said, feel free to hit me up on PSN or XBL if you want to play some games. My Gamertag and PSN ID is zophar53. Actually, that’s my online name for most sites I have a profile on. I play mostly on PS4 and PC but am a fan of all consoles and genres.
