Haven't updated in a while. I had a good SUmmer. Here's a picture of me and Coolio-Niato surfing (I'm on the left). I took up surfing this Summer and I'm training for a Full Marathon in February.

So the hunt begins. Looking for somewhere to live next year, hopefully to own.
We've lived in apartments for the past 5 years, now I think I want to buy something. With the marriage and the economy everything seems to be lining up for it. We don't want anything ridiculous, but something to settle into and to call home.
Updates to come!

Hi friends, several updates.
This weekend I watched Big, after being inspired by BoMToon's game. It was a fun movie, classic 80's. I would recommend it! The game he made makes so much more sense once you watch the movie.
In a couple weekends I'm going to pursue my motorcycle license. I'm taking a class so I don't die as fast. Wish me luck!
Yesterday with the release of I Hate Traffic on AG I have launched my first iPhone/touch game! I Love Traffic is a port of the Flash version and adds a few levels and features. It's a nice little game, only a dollar. I did all the graphics and original programming for the game (got some help to get it to iPhone), very happy with it. Download! Yay! And as a side note, looking for a web job? We're hiring at Armor for a website dev.
That's all, enjoy your weekend!

I don't know how many of you have played World of Goo yet but it's an amazing little journey and I found the trip very worthwhile. One of the big takeaways from the game was the fantastic music, which I have come to enjoy a little too much. Luckily 2D Boy has released the soundtrack for free so I can listen to it over and over again without having to sit down and play the game each time.
I rarely listen to video game music, but there are few soundtracks i have found incredibly enjoyable. Games like Earthbound and Fallout 3 invoke some sort of pseudonostalgic sensation that lets me enjoy the game past having to handle a controller. Really makes me appreciate the effort that goes into video game music direction.
Speaking of video games, no PAX for me this year, but for everyone else going have a safe trip and fun time.

Hello News Reader! I hope you are having a great day.
I'm training for my half marathon right now so I'm sort of sleepy, but I'm still working hard on games and getting settled into going to Australia next month. Busy busy.
A few recent blog articles to look at talking about my content.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Just checking in to say hello, a few updates.
I'm 60 days away from my wedding. I'm getting really excited about getting hitched and I have a wicked honeymoon in Australia afterwards. I'll be going up the coast of Queensland. It's my first time to Australia so I'm excited.
I've been getting into photography as a hobby now that I do Flash for a living. I've been trying to get out every weekend or so to take photos at different locations. You can take a look at my flickr here. My Conservatory pictures are some of my favourite. One day I hope Newgrounds will allow photography so that I can upload my work there.
Anyway, have good one.

ANYWAY, have you bought your BoMToons Tshirt yet? It's 100% preshrunk cotton, not tax-deductable whatsoever, and available in your size. BoMToons cannot sell tshirts without you giving him money so throw him a few a buy a couple! All proceeds go to Powerbars and Gatorade for his upcoming ridiculous 200 mile one-day bike ride.
Have a fantastic day!

Twice actually! Sad to not be a judge this year but thanks for the nom nom nom for Dark Cut 3 and Achievement Unlocked.
Like BoMToons has spoiled completely we're wrapping up a tribute to the best game ever that exceeds even his Pickleman Betafest game. We've been working on it for way too long and we're going to be happy to finally get this monstrosity out of the FLA barn.
Because he posted spoilers I'll post something that doesn't spoil anything. ENJOY.
