I'm reading your stuff.
Cause I was by Sheridan yesterday and thought of you.

Hope you're well =)

Regarding the Year of our Birth:

Fraggle Rock T_T

Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me by The Cure

You mean Famicom, not Famitsu, that's a magazine.
Have you ever played the first NES Final Fantasy?
It's pretty brutal. >_<

It was probably one of the best years ever for videogames, though!
Castlevania, Zelda, Mega Man, Bomb Jack, Elevator Action, Legend of Kage
Still pretty great games!

If you and/or Jake ever want a place to stop over in Toronto, me and Sam have an overabundance of space! And you are always welcome! It's a place of much music and good food and stupid fun. Lemme know how Animation's going. =)

Edited my post for the (ridiculously stupid of me) error you pointed out and shamelessly stole some of your facts! >:D

I'll definitely phone you up some time, we should get together.

I can't play anything on the NES, I have NO skill in 8-bit whatsoever.
