The Atari 2600 releases E.T. My mom releases me.
Being born in what I have dubbed "The Gaming Age" has been an extreme joy to myself and my mother whom, without games, would have had her hands full as I grew up. A man by the name of Mr. Kemp bought me my first NES as a way to win my heart at an early age of 3. It worked. My mom's relationship with him however did not, although I thank him to this day and we're still great friends.
At the ages of 4-12 I was in and out of the hospital for ADHD and Epilepsy which put a damper on some games I wanted to play thanks to Epilepsy warnings. Being bed ridden throughout a large part of my life with video games was a wonderful way for me to view my situation in a better light. I was sick, but could escape to Transylvania, the Mushroom Kingdom, or Space. Now, 31 years old and pretty healthy, I still enjoy games in the same fashion and childlike wonder as I did as that sickly little boy.
I play in a band with some really awesome dudes. We're called With Wolves and we like to party.
I've recently launched a website with video game news, reviews, videos, and podcasts (soon) and I'm really proud of the progress I've made with it. Check it out if you can. It's been a lot of fun and a lot of writing.
I play a lot of games.
I play music. I take pictures. I take moving pictures. I play video games. I'm TJ. My friends call me Bruise.
