Live from France!

Ok I have to be fast, as this laptop is French, and has a weird keyboard. Also, I dont want
be rude!

So Im in France! This whole trip has been very cool, and Im going to be posting a large
when I get to the states about French gaming culture and more. And since Im going to be
London on Sunday till friday, I might post then if something really cool about games
Are there anybody who want to split a pint while Im in London? let me know!

Ok, Ive had some crazy stuff happen while here: Look and listen!

- In the French town of Arles, I saw a man who looks just like fireflower Luigi, but in real
Pics on the 17.

- Think American or French gaming mags are cool? Check out Amusement, a French
magazine like GQ for gamers. I ll post scans if I can find a copy, but this thing is hardcore
classy, like VOGUE quality. Can somebody find its website?

- Has anybody else realized the comminity blogs have just had a one year anniversary? I
just did!

And finally, this is the best:
-On my way in the airport in San Fran, I ran into this guy I recognized but didnt know
where. So I asked, and he immediately recognized me! It was Seth from Capcom, one of
the PR people I met when I went to the Capcom Digital Days earlier this year courtisy CTZ.
Good news for me? Seth is going to set me up with PR lists and network. Hes hella chill,
and this only means good news for me as a gaming journalist!

-Bad news? Seth told me that the new Capcom VS is 99% not coming to the States, due to
ownership rights. Better get importing, as he said the roster is really good.

Alright! Im done! Au revoir, Ill check in on Sunday like regular, but in London! Then back
to Paris, where Im buying my sister a Japanese sweet Lolita dress for 400 dollars for her
21 birthday from Baby the Stars Shine Bright. I might have to kill myself, but she might do
it for me if I dont return with a dress. Google that company; youll see what I mean.

What's to say? I like videogames, otherwise, why would I be here? Other than that, I'm a college student (UC Berkeley 2010)and I do journalism. I was Co-Editor in Chief at my junior college paper, The Oak Leaf, until I transfered to Berkeley. You can read it online here. I even had a games column which is surprisingly popular, and people get a kick out of it.

I also write for a tech blog at LogicTV. It's a cool; check it out.

Here's my Vox account


And I have a Facebook, but I still don't really understand it. Hit me up if you feel like it!
