God and Mind

A great Xenogears fansite, made long long ago, probably when I was still 17 years old, this is probably a remnant of a lost era of video games. For me it's a nice memory of my past life in high school, when I used to come home every day and play this till i fell asleep. I still have the game but its been years since I was able to start a new game file. This website is wonderful and has a lot of stuff from the Xenogears experience. I recommend you go check it out.

Xenogears: God and Mind

If you are wondering what Xenogears is, it is not Xenosaga, it is the game which predates it, but comes after Xenosaga in both games universes. It's an old one but it's completely worth buying still.

The first time i played it through, it took me 90 hours over a period of say, 6 months. At the time I had never played a game over 15 hours, and this was amazing! This game really changed my life in a sense that I began trying to think deeper about the storyline and plots to my own comics. I also became deeply attached to the characters in this game. Overall really it inspired me to go for more than the usual forms of entertainment in everything. I felt that Xenogears had taught me to look beyond what a video game, TV show or a comic book could be. In order to create truly lasting work, I would have to make something that changed my viewers perceptions about the world, and changed their lives for the good. I would have to make a lasting impression on them, as the Xenogears game made on me.

Sonic the Hedgehog Selects.


Volume two is now available!!! In addition, "Knuckles the Dark Legion" mini series has been re-released along with a slew of the first Knuckles books from the cut-short Knuckles the Echidna comic book series. I am so happy about this. The Sonic Super Specials are something I used to look forward to as a kid, even though i have a pile of them, this collection would be great, I really do prefer graphic novels to the monthly issues now. In addition the Sonic Archives have gone even further now. Sonic #194 just came out as well. Things are really looking up for this series, FINALLY.

My SVA Senior Portfolio

My senior portfolio will be my science fiction/adventure story "Infinity Roads." This project has been worked on, on and off for the past year or two. I originally started it back in 2006, unfortunately due to lack of experience with printing technology and text layouts, it was not as successful as i had hoped. This new version will feature a 5 page wrap up of the original story and the conclusion to the story, which I have wanted to write for such a long time now. I really would like to pull off a 30-40 page book here, but let's see what happens. If it can be shorter that would work as well. Eventually I will put them together as a small graphic novel (maybe pocket size). and begin selling. In addition to that I will be releasing a graphic novel of my collective works since 2006 eventually. This is only about 50 pages into being done. All that scanning takes time, but this will be regular graphic novel size, probably ending around 150-200 pages. Both will be available next year! Look forward to it : )

Infinity Roads Part 2.

Where is it and why isn't it done yet???? Infinity Roads 2 has been worked on slowly but surely over the past year or so. Luckily it is close to the end with around 17 pages penciled and almost 14 or so inked. I am trying to make this work really shine so this is the reason behind the delay. Anthony and Miranda, being thrown back into a real life version of their dream world are attempting to find the answers of how it can be true that a place they created in a dream exists in real life. The planet is populated my mechanical things (like the snake you see below) and mostly desolate, especially in the built up areas. This book will end right at the opening of the mystery and leaving room for the resolution in the next issue, which if i'm lucky won't take nearly as long as this one did....

Exploration of Mars

In the last month or so the Mars lander "Phoenix" touched down at the Mars arctic, and has begun research. So far it has dug a small trench into the soil and come upon a white substance which is believed to be either ice or salt, both of which indicate the presence of water now or in the past. The two older Mars rovers are still functioning as well, long after they were supposed to shut down. I find the exploration of this planet fascinating, we know so little about it and it's so very far away from us. Still I'm surprised how little we can explore in the universe. Mars is far in human terms but as far as the sheer size of the universe, the distance is nothing.
During the late 70's the Voyager probes were launched to explore the planets Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto. Now the Voyager 1 probe is leaving the confines of the suns effects in the solar system, and traveling at something near 38000 MPH. According to the probes website, it will continue to function till around 2025, when it will cease functioning completely. STILL , after more than 30 years it will barely leave the solar system and the sun's effects.
From my point of view many scientists act as if we have a strong fundamental knowledge of the Earth and a decent understanding of the universe. It is my personal believe that we know nothing. The universe can only be seen so far, what lies beyond that no one can tell. We have only explored 1% of the abyssal plane of the ocean on our own planet, and our space limitations are enormous, we can't even reach Mars without takes many many months and literally millions of dollars.
Then there are the "crazy" questions of multiple universes, the consistency of time over travel at high speeds (time travel?), black holes, and the understanding of reality. I've seen scientists quoted as saying the idea of multiple universes, time travel and other similar ideas as being ridiculous. Here I'm going to point to the story of Galileo and the Catholic Church at the time, who was ridiculed for saying the Sun was the center of the solar system. Because an idea sounds beyond the current possibility of existence, doesn't mean it is. People have to stop thinking their small vision of the universe as it is NOW is true and will be true forever. Because books, theories, television, the internet, says something does not mean it is a universal truth.
We really are so arrogant because of the small knowledge we have. There must be so much more driving things that can't be seen. We can't even tell right now if our little hole on Mars has water in it or not, nor do we know what's at the bottom of our own ocean.
Who knows what is beyond the edge of the universe as we see it. Maybe it would be better to stop thinking in a bubble, and get creative.... just an idea I've been driving to death in my head..

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Was very good. Harrison Ford can still play a good Dr Jones. Overall I really loved the movie and probably will go see it again. The best part was the mystery, not knowing what was going to happen or what the truth behind the artifacts in the movie, was what made it so great. Also the setting in Peru (I think it was Peru) made it even better, since where it was filmed was so amazing to look at. It had less computer effects that I expected, which was an added bonus for me, I was worried this movie would become another Star Wars Episode 1. Even though I had a good guess at what the plot was, it left enough hidden to keep me from getting bored...

so ... I say go see it now. You will have a great time!
