News Flash: Beloved Adventurer Returns From Flight Of Fancy!
The Place: Baltimore, City of Charm and Commotion!
The Time: Now, the Ever-Changing Present!
For the first time in years, the eccentric writer and adventurer
known to millions by the nom du net "Fizzbang" has
returned to civilization once more! Children sang and flowers burst
into bloom as his air-yacht set down on the peak of the Washington
Monument -- built by the first president himself as a memorial to
the intrepid explorer, whose coming had been predicted by
Washington's personal team of oracles and constitutional
The great man had last departed four years ago, bound to explore
the deepest reaches of the hollow earth and to ensure a union with
the bizarre yeti-men that reside therein. To a grateful nation, he
produced a signed peace accord, written on the finest yeti-hide;
proof of the yetis' goodwill, and also of their strange, heathen
burial customs. At last, America and Undermerica stand united
against the fearsome Wormmunist Republic of Marsylvania!
When asked what riches he had brought those perilous, inverted
shores, he replied only, "Wisdom."
In the reverent silence that followed, he produced a string of
wisdom teeth, tooth after knobby tooth glinting in the warm
sunlight. The crowd's horror soon turned to delight as he popped
one into his own mouth, explaining that they were only tooth-shaped
mints, a candied delicacy he had come to appreciate in the yetis'
subterranean flavor-dens. Surely, the teeth's tiny, golden fillings
were merely a fanciful decoration. OR WERE THEY?
After further retelling sof his epic adventures, the man Mark Twain
once nicknamed "the Kind Viking" was awarded the Congressional
Medal of Astonishment, the highest honor the nation can bestow on a
semi-fictional civilian. Before retiring to his stately animatronic
mansion, he offered one final piece of advice to the assembled
"Life demands a story, but every tale is a half-truth at best - so
make sure yours is wholly entertaining!"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Designing, writing, drawing, gaming, animating, improvising,
hiking, camping, adventuring, talking, listening, and exploring.
That just about covers it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking and listening in equal measure. Being silly and helping you
do the same. Making and playing games of all sorts. Connecting
unrelated ideas to make a beautiful contraption.

don't normally get along, I probably like it.
Foods: Sushi (unagi and tamagoe), Indian food (especialy malai

just about anything spicy and savory.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sketchbook and pencil: My analog palmtop, it's great for making

Friends: Always another viewpoint to understand, and usually some
damned fine stories to share. And even better ones to be made with
Luck: Never leave home without it! A little bit of luck makes
everything work out better.
Optimism: For when the luck isn't quite working, this helps keep me
going until it kicks in again.
And, of course, creativity
: Without it, everything
would be so dull. Don't trust anyone who's always bored: it just
means they aren't creative enough to make their own fun.
